Benefits of Fruit Consumption

Fruit is food that possesses a seed within itself which is surrounded by pulp and a protective skin. There are different parts of the fruit such as the stem, seeds, and skin, all of which have some nutrient value.

This blog serves to answer many of the questions surrounding vegetarianism in general, fruitarianism specifically. Again, be free in your spirit to address anything you'd like regarding the topic at hand in your comment(s). Bear in mind that, as much as is in my knowledge/abilities as a healer, I will answer from three perspectives: One, an African scientific perspective, because it is the oldest science on the planet, and African peoples spent thousands of years observing natural phenomena and were thus equipped to deal with the intracacies of life; two, a medical perspective, fusing the fields of anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry; and three, an optimal eating perspective. Food must contain all its biochemical and electromagnetic properties, and must digest efficiently without leaving waste products in the system.

Seeds contain the genetic code of the fruit and can only be digested after soaking them overnight to remove enzyme inhibitors. It's good to avoid political terminology such as "nuts and seeds" because all nuts are seeds. Peanuts, however, are botanically classified as legumes. Legumes are seeds encased within a protective shell that generate a new plant.

Seeds are harder on the system to digest than the pulp and digestible skins of most fruit, and tend to leave a slimy mucoid paste on the teeth and gums. Seeds are also acidic. This applies to all except almonds, which are high in calcium and protein.

Though seeds have protein, calcium, and provide us with some of the 140+ minerals our bodies need, they are not optimal food because of the strength needed to digest them. They must therefore be chewed thoroughly into a paste, and it's a good idea to use a neem stick or licorice root to clean the teeth and gums after eating.

The cattle industry now holds hands with the vegan supplement industry in pushing B-12 capsules and powders on consumers. Nutritionists and dietitians are also supporting this nonscience, claiming you can only get this mineral from animal products.

There are several problems with this antiscience. First, a healthy intestinal tract supplies enough B-12 for a wo/man to thrive. If you're a vegan and believe you must supplement, why not expend your resources of time, energy and money into buying foods and herbs that will heal the colon? Heal the colon, you'll have your B-12. If you must, sea vegetables such as kelp, nori, and dulse have a high amount of all the minerals you'll need to thrive.

Secondly, we must ask ourselves how the original human beings obtained their B-12 if they were fruitarians/raw vegetarians. Original wo/man was much healthier and didn't possess the means by which to destroy their intestinal tract with air pollution, urban water treatment, and fake food such as Twinkies, veggie dogs, soda and Frosted Flakes. Thus, their B-12 was intact.

Heal the gut, restore B-12.

Protein requirements are small for a healthy being. The Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) given us by government agents known as dietitians* are much too large. And, because I'm an African who understands that 90% of the world's population is melanated (brown and black), I must inject the Truth about melanin, a biochemical that promotes efficiency in bodily functions. Thus, protein requirements are even smaller for those with more melanin contained within.

Furthermore, the fruitarian receives proten through eating a wide variety of energetic food without counting calories, fat grams, and daily percentages. The food industry is political. Remember this...

Weight loss occurs when one ceases to ingest toxic substances such as starch, sugar, dairy and meat. Meat is all animal flesh, thus there's no such thing as a lacto-vegetarian, ovo-vegetarian, or even a flexitarian, someone who eats every substance their emotional center tells them to eat. These are also political terms and allow the junk food eater to pacify their diseased emotional state by claiming vegetarianism. If you drink milk or eat fish, then we must act as those of the highest order and say so: "I'm not a vegetarian, because I eat fish and chicken," or, "I love milk and cheese, and therefore I'm not a vegetarian."

This blog advocates an African medicinal view of life and healing disease. The word vegetarian stems from the Latin "vegeta" which translates roughly into, 'that which brings life.' So we cannot aptly say, "I'm not a meat eater/milk drinker, but I eat fish, chicken, and eat feta cheese." These toxic substances are not digested by the body, which explains the heavy feeling after eating them. Some say, "But I use the toilet after eating meat." The body created extra mucous to help the carcass slide out of your digestive tract so that you would live and not die.

Most Africans cannot digest calf's milk because we don't have lactase, the enzyme necessary to digest milk sugars. Especially when it's pasteurized. Just because our diet has been changed due to enslavement, war, encroachment by foreign powers, does not mean it's our original diet. And no, European wo/men aren't designed to ingest calf's milk, either. Just bear in mind that if you're melanated, you will pay for eating toxic foods with your very life before someone who is not, based on your melanin template creating more of this substance.

One whose weight is over/underweight will experience weight loss/gain, depending on what work the body needs to do.

In case there are still doubters, check my main pic and you'll see what 1 year of eating mostly fruit, walking at least 5 miles a day, occasional windsprints and push-ups, and a sound mind will do for the human body. For the record, I haven't done sit-ups in 10 years, but if you take a look at my photo album you'll find that you don't need a gym or sit-ups to have powerful stomach muscles.

Much love to y'all. Peace.

My Fruitarian Journey, Part 1

Okay, here it is, folks. Everyone's been asking me about the fruitarian lifestyle, why I chose to become a fruitarian, and how in the world can fruit truly satisfy the human body without the aid of other types of food.

I'll answer all the questions I've received over the past year of why I moved into the lifestyle. If anyone has additional comments/questions, be free to leave them here.

After beginning the vegetarian lifestyle in '06 I continued to do research into human physiology, anatomy and biology, and included the study of indigenous cultures, world spiritualities, and ancient history. After examining the evidence from these and related fields, it was clear the original and primal diet of humankind was and still is fruit--that food from the earth which bears and maintains seed(s) within itself.

Food, technically defined, is that which bears three properties which nonfoods cannot and will never have. Namely, the energy contained within will excite the energy inherent within the body. Food does not give the body fuel, like gasoline gives an automobile its ability to move. The body already has its own energy supply. This explains the existence of meridians, chakras, and the ability of someone who fasts for long periods of time to continue with regular daily activity. An automobile without gasoline is useless, while the human body can go for weeks without food.

Second, food as technically define digests quickly and easily. Digestion by definition means it is chewed thoroughly into a liquid, and when entering the colon and small intestine, its nutrient content is fully utilized by the human body. Whatever excess minerals are taken in are formed into waste products such as sweat, urine and fecal matter, and evacuated from the body within an hour of eating. Any elimination longer than this means one is constipated and must cleanse through fasting, fruit ingestion, and, if a healer's or a self-diagnosis indicates, the use of herbal remedies.

Third, food as technically defined retains its mineral content, chemical structure, and electromagnetic energy. There is no substance in existence which can be defined as food if it lacks its full chemical structure, mineral content, and bioelectromagnetic energy. If one uses Kirlian photography s/he can see the electromagnetic field surrounding a living thing. We call this field an aura, and some are trained enough to see it with their naked third eye, better known as the pineal gland. Kirlian photography uses a special camera lens to sense this energy. David Wolfe's The Sunfood Diet Success System has a myriad of pictures using this method of photosensitivity.

Meat eating, drinking calf's milk and eating its mold which we call cheese is detrimental to the human system. Eating starchy foods, salt and concentrated sugar are dangerous habits for us, especially melanated peoples.

Melanated people include all brown and black-skinned individuals living on this planet. Melanin is a biochemical that causes an increase in one's sensitivity to both nutrients and toxins. This means that Africans ("Black folks," "African-Americans") cannot digest these substances because they remain in the body and murder the various cells, tissues, glands and organs contained within. Cookies, cake, rolls, mineral salt, rock salt, Celtic sea sea salt, brown sugar, white sugar, molasses, honey and maple syrup will kill you, Black Wo/Man!

Don't do it...

Again, all these poisons mentioned above have acidic qualities, and as a health counselor, would never advise you to eat them if you had cancer, AIDS, the flu, a cold, or even a runny nose. All fresh fruit is alkaline, including lemons and limes. Don't let the bitter taste fool you. We've been taught they must be acid because they're bitter. But chemically they're alkaline. When our saliva makes contact with the lemon/lime juice and enters the bloodstream, it's received as an alkaline substance. This explains why lemons are so cleansing, refreshing, and provide a kick to the body when digested.

These dietary laws apply to 'vegan' food, which for most is too much starch and not enough raw food. There are some I've met who live on mostly raw plant foods and only occasionally deal with veggie patties, veggie sausage, veggie pizza (which usually has milk mold--cheese--on it). This is still a good way of eating, for the raw plants power their bodies on a much higher level than most others on the starchy diet.

Much of the vegetarian food industry is filled with serial killers (no pun intended here). If it's in a box, bag, or shrink wrapped, then it's poison, unless the folks made something fresh and simply placed it in a container. We're good at that point.

Any nonfood substance kills the brain first, and death of the brain coincides with reproductive death. Fruit gives these organ systems a potency that one will never feel in another way of living, and I know from personal experience by eating a mostly fruit diet for the past year, then paring that down even further till the present day, that your spirit, your thinking, and your body become liberated In fact, after becoming a vegetarian these points rang true, and increased after moving on to fruitarianism.

Furthermore, your sexual capacity increases in such a great manner where even the use of herbs is unnecessary. Longevity and staying power increase. Desire increases in the sense of balance. Nonfoods stimulate the sex organs and one becomes a slave to it, instead of its master. You, Brother/Sister, are the master of your lower self. This is what our ancient masters taught, and they lived to be hundreds of years old and retained their sexual energy through their lifespan. Peep the scroll called Bershit, which we call Genesis in the Bible. We find Adamu and Chuwa (Eve) living to be nearly 1,000 years old, and they had children well into their hundreds.

Wo/men experience sexual dysfunction because of emotional issues and the clogging of the tissues that make up the sex organs. Fruitarianism cleanses these areas to the point where one may cease the use of sexual herbal remedies.

Starch, for intance, clogs the porous sponge tissue that we call the penis. No, Brothas, the penis is not a muscle; it does not contain muscle tissue. It's a sponge and fills with blood when we're aroused. If those holes/pockets are packed with starch and sugar, then it won't operate properly. Remember when sugar was left too long on our plates and kitchen counters? It hardened and was difficult to remove. What about pancake batter and cookie dough? Same thing occurs after ingesting too much starch. It hardens and is difficult to remove.

This principle of sexual cleanliness applies to the woman's vagina, with the exception that the vagina is a muscle. Thus, ladies and gentleman, we actually have a superior functioning sex organ in the woman, not the man. In fact, the vagina contains hundreds of muscles, which explains why a woman with full understanding of her body can put a man out of commission in the bedroom. Behold the power of the Woman!

Fruit facilitates healing energy everywhere in the body; it leaves the stomach within thirty minutes, sometimes longer if you eat a fatty, nonsweet fruit such as avocado, nuts, and olives.

In the next blog on the fruitaian lifestyle I'll address the various definitions people have of fruit, what fruit is from a scientific perspective, and the intricacies of living the lifestyle, including water consumption.
