Vitality - Is Ehret Correct ?
I believe I have validated the Ehret Vitality Formula.. once again (V=P-O).
As most of you know, I am in transition to 100% LFRV. It seems after a period of several weeks (especially if I fast or skip a meal) my vitality is lowered. I feel weak,brain fog, mild headache, tired, cold... your classic detox like symptoms... cannot get enough sleep.. and sleep will not be as deep at times as I need.
Last evening.. we were ALL feeling this way and decided to have some steamed vegs and legumes. My dinner consisted of a large salad with 1 cup of pinto beans and some frozen peas (thawed) followed by 1lb of steamed broccoli.
Almost like a light switch... BAMMO... I could feel a surge in my vitality and this AM I do feel so much better !!
The healing power of the body and a LFRV diet/fasting are quite impressive... but it seems there is a compromise of vitality vs. speed of detoxification that I must weigh during this transition. I can ill afford too low a vitality at work.. I need to perform well.
This has been one heck of an interesting trip thus far.. I can tell ya that !!
Looking forward to the rest of the healing journey.... and best wishes to those on a healing path !!
Inspired by twin sons diagnosed with Autism and our own fading vitality (fatigue, brain fog, candida overgrowth, metabolic acidosis, bad breath, ibs, white tongue, grey hair, bad skin, vertigo, depression, anxiety...etc..) we have been 95% Raw since November 2008 and are currently implementing a high raw low fat vegan (HRLFV) diet. Our kids need more fat - but are now HRV starting 2010.
It's NEVER too late to start LIVING !!
