My Quantum Health Transformation

Food Saved My Life! by Karen Holton

I dieted my way to morbid obesity.  Weighing in at 320 pounds, I felt terrible physically, mentally and spiritually.  I was always on a diet: fad diets, Weight Watchers, TOPS; but every time I lost weight, I gained it all back and more!  How ironic that when I finally learned to eat more real food, I lost 178 pounds permanently, and this saved my life.

While I was losing weight permanently, I found out that I could generate as much energy as I needed by freeing myself from chemical resistance.  Lifelong accumulations of toxins, heavy metals, and other mostly man-made chemicals “corroded” my spiritual connections so my energy was not conducted or utilized adequately.  When this happens, our Chakras cannot flow and don’t pool our energy efficiently or abundantly.

Detoxifying my body was a challenge at first; I felt like I was cleaning house for a hoarder. Eventually as I passed through the worst of it, I was able to maintain a state of well-being with a simple daily routine and healthy lifestyle.  I have a good appetite and am very grateful that real food is my friend, and I no longer need to limit amounts.

My physical, mental, and social success is rooted in my becoming aware of the true nature of food.  I found out that fresh, live, raw, organic and wild foods contain nutrients (like vitamins, minerals and enzymes), and vital moisture which contains other essential microscopic elements (like micro-minerals, crystals, gases and lipids).  Raw, organic foods contain fibre (essential for detoxification and elimination), pigments (medicinal compounds, and life energy from the sun in specific wavelengths depending on the colour), and nutrients for my gut flora (essential for emotional stability).  Let’s not forget flavour & texture which make eating very pleasurable, and the fact that real foods alkalize the body, making it disease resistant – another bonus!

I also discovered there are good reasons to eat a variety of organic and wild, non-irradiated herbs and spices.  The natural preservatives found in herbs, spices, salts & teas will prolong life and keep us well.  They guard against parasites, bacteria and viruses because they become systemic prophylactic medicines when eaten.  I learned to enjoy a wide variety of organic ethnic foods from around the world; and a variety of salts, (Mediterranean, Celtic, Himalayan, etc.) which provide the micro components needed to repair my DNA. 

When I started eating mostly live, raw, organic and wild foods, I found that my health and awareness rapidly improved.  People started to notice and my confidence soared!  Shake your food style up a bit and join me in the adventure.  The spin-off is better health, a clearer mind and a happier spirit.

By eating my way to better health, I have kept the 178 excess pounds off for ten years and am so enjoying this body!  Food saved my life.
