Matthew 15 vs. 17 (NKJV)
Do you not understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated?
Food and our relationship are one of the most critical matters of our daily living. Because we receive our energy from food, it is a matter of life and death to consider the chemistry of the food we eat. It complements the chemistry of the body to produce the much-needed energy that is the foundation to the whole inner working of every facet of the body.
The human body is composed of several chemical elements. They are Oxygen, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Calcium, Phosphorus, Sulfur, Sodium, Chlorine, Fluorine, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Silicon, and Manganese. These elements must be replenished as they are consumed by the daily processes that the body undergoes. Therefore, proper food is needed to replace these essential chemicals, and proper digestion is necessary to break down food and draw from those elements required. This is why the majority of diseases that the average man or woman suffers from has its genesis in the digestive tract.
The body cannot be fooled; it knows exactly what it needs to remain in a healthy and robust state. Even the little pigs learned the hard way that a house of straw would not stand against the outside elements that can sometimes attack. Thus the body needs strong building blocks to withstand the constant attacks that are made to its defense against disease.
If you are wondering if what you are eating, is building up or tearing down your body, an excellent place to start is to ask if what you are eating is close to its natural state. The farther away food is from its natural state, the less you can rely on it to replenish the body with proper nutrition that has the chemical analysis, of the elements that were mention at the beginning of this article.
There is a great deal of science in food, and the more processed our food is, the less we can determine what the outcome of eating it. Although the less than good news we receive at the Doctor has a way of putting it into perspective for us.
