All Food Has Energy. What Are You Putting Into Your body?

Samantha Stephenson

I'm a Kambo Practitioner, Primal Health Coach, and ACE Personal Trainer. I've been obsessed with working with food ever since I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease in 2014. Food truly is medicine. 

 

Have you ever been having, just the best day ever. Walking on sunshine. Maybe you found a $5 bill on your walk, and used it to buy a sticker for your hydro-flask. That's a thing people do, right?

You decide to go over to your friends house that evening, and all you receive from them is bad vibes. Maybe that friends is hatin' on someone at their gym. 

You go home, and that heavy energy sticks to you for days. It doesn't feel good, and it's uncomfortable, especially if you aren't aware of how to release it. 

Food can do the same thing. There are foods are have high vibrations, or energy, and make you feel light. And there are foods that have low vibrations, that can make you feel heavy, dense, and uncomfortable. 

 

Foods that tend to have dense, heavy energy are;

  • Meat and animal products from animals who are treated poorly 
  •  GMO and processed foods
  • Foods sprayed with pesticides
  • Foods grown in poor quality soil

 

When you are using meat as a staple in your diet, quality of life for the animal is crucial to your own well being, as you will be taking on the energy of that animal. Think about this for a second. Think about what the energy of a cow in a commercial feed lot is like. It is fed a diet, which is unnatural to what it would have in nature. It stands in poop all day, crowded by other cows. The environment is not pleasant to look at. It smells bad. They are prone to disease, so they receive a lot of antibiotics. And they are traumatized throughout their life, but especially right before they are processed. Imagine that were you. What would your energy be like? Really do you research and find your meat from a farmer who truly cares about his animals, loves them, and treats them humanly when processing. 

GMO means genetically modified organisms. It can be a plant, animal, or any other organism that has had its genetic makeup tinkered with using genetic engineering. This is different than crossbreeding organisms. This is a very unnatural and unsettling process, and leaves our food and animals we are consuming void of many things we need. 

The worst offenders are alfalfa, canola, corn, cotton, papaya, soy, sugar beet, yellow summer squash, zucchini, animals in commercial feed lots, and potatoes. 

Look for Non-GMO when buying your food. The best way to do this is by avoiding processed foods, and filling your stomach with whole foods. 

 

Foods sprayed with pesticides should be completely avoided. In a research paper published in July 2016 called Chemical Pesticides and Human Health: The Urgent Need for a New Concept in Agriculture, common chemical pesticides used in agriculture were analyzed to determine the adverse health affects they may be having on our bodies. They found that the pesticides affected our dermatological, gastrointestinal, neurological, carcinogenic, respiratory, reproductive, and endocrine systems. They also found that washing and peeling cannot completely remove the residues. 

I highly recommend you read this article. It is eye-opening, and shocking that these chemicals are being used on our crops. And in the meantime, buy organic. Or better yet, buy local, from farmers who you can have a conversation with on what they use/don't use on their crops. 

 

 

And last, I want to talk about soil quality. Our soil is becoming more and more depleted with every growing season. Our soil is unable to replenish itself with what it needs when it isn't given a chance to rest. This is something I am very interested in learning more about. There are techniques, such as crop rotation, that are said to really help. 

My favorite source of knowledge to refer to for topics such as this are The Weston A. Price Foundation and Mark's Daily Apple

Happy Eating!
