Our body is filled with trillions of such cells. We cannot see these cells with our naked eye. We need a microscope to see them. Do you wonder what such a small cell can do? All the chemical changes that take place in our body are accomplished in the cell only. The food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe – everything finally goes into the cells. In fact, we are eating, drinking and breathing for their sake. The air we breathe in goes into the lungs, joins the blood from there and through the blood reaches the cells. That air helps in the production of energy in the cells.
In the same way the water we drink ultimately reaches these cells through the stomach and blood and fulfills the needs there.
The food we eat, after it is digested in the intestines, goes into the blood and from there is carried into these cells. These food items combust in the presence of air and water and produce energy. The energy and heat produced there is the reason for the heat of our body and its limbs. The cell is like a stove, like a piston in a motorcycle. The energy produced in the cells spreads all over the body continuously meeting the needs of the body. We feel very weak if we delay our food by four, five hours. This means the energy produced in the cells is almost exhausted and the body warns us in the form of weakness to eat food. It sends such natural signals!
If we eat food regularly, the cells work continuously and once their life is over, they give rise to new cells in their place. Once the engine of a car consumes the fuel, carbon monoxide smoke is released. In the stove, after the wood is burnt, the smoke and charcoal remain as waste material. In the same way, in our cells from the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink, after they have provided their energy, release waste material in three forms – in either solid, liquid, gaseous states. These three forms, after exiting the cells, join the blood in outward circulation, and reach the excretory organs. The gaseous state of waste material that joins blood goes to lungs and is let out in the lungs, exhaled in the form of carbondioxide. The liquid state of waste material goes through the blood to the kidneys and skin and is left there. From the kidney it is excreted as urine. Finally, in the same manner, solid waste exits the intestines as stool. This is a constant, everyday chemical reaction in the body.
The waste material produced in the cell through food, air and water should be proportionate to the waste material sent out (1: 1) from the cells. Then only we can claim to be perfectly healthy people. Whoever has such a perfect proportion in the cells that person will have a healthy atmosphere there also. Just as you thoroughly clean the stove every day and remove the charcoal or ashes, so should the waste material in the cells be completely removed, and then the water flowing in the cell will be pure and clean. That water doesn’t give out a stinking smell. It isn’t sticky.
The infant who depends only on breastfeeding has this 1:1 proportion for the simple reason that he drinks only when he is hungry and stops when the cells ask him to stop. Also, he urinates and defecates whenever he feels the need. So that purity is there in his cells. The 8.4 millions of creatures in God’s creation follow the same formula. Once the body is given solid food, this dharma of the body changes. The waste material produced in our body is based on the food we eat. The creator of our body, the Almighty, decides our food based on the size of the excretory organs in our body. After all He has every right over our body. The body is made in such a way that if the quantity of waste material to be released is greater, more exercise is also provided to that creature. For instance a tiger eats only flesh. Automatically the waste material created is more and it has to come out of the excretory organs totally. So God has created its body in such a way that it can run hundreds of miles a day. That exercise is required for the food it eats. Since the waste material that comes out is great, it doesn’t touch food again until the waste is released.
That’s why tigers eat once in 40 hours and sleep for 20 hours. That is the secret of God’s creation. On the contrary, the elephant, which has a relatively big body, eats only vegetarian food. So its released waste is less relatively. For this reason, God made it walk slowly. That amount of exercise is enough for it. The fecal matter is excreted every day. So the elephant keeps on eating from morning to evening. Ten to twelve hours of sleep a night is sufficient for its excretory action.
Who advised the tiger to take rest for so many hours? No one!
The meat it eats suggests it to do so. By now you must have understood the fact that waste material is based on the food one eats, body’s exercise and even the rest taken. If you understand this formula, you will automatically understand why we are prone to so many diseases. Our health or even ill health is based on this.
The three things that we human beings do not know:
1) What food we should eat,
2) How much exercise we need to do (to properly release our waste material) and,
3) How many hours we should rest before we eat again.
There is no creature that does not know these things. Only we, human beings, are so ignorant. So we eat whatever we want, as much as we want, whenever we want totally ignoring the laws laid down by God and harming the nature around us, harming ourselves and leading lives of ignoble men. God has gifted us with fruits, raw vegetables and seeds. If we can consume them as they are, our excretory organs can release their waste materials every day. They are given that much energy. Additionally, if we eat this natural food before sunset, the time for excretion will be quite sufficient. Then the proportion will be 1:1. However, if we continue to eat till mid night there is not enough time for excretory action and so 10% of fecal matter will stagnate in the body.
The food we eat can be divided into four types.
First type of food
If you eat sprouts, fruits, raw vegetables, and grains only, the body will release the waste material daily and so the cells will be pure and healthy. The waste material produced by this food is very little. Body doesn’t need much time to complete its excretory process. Let us compare the natural food to jet fuel for the airplane. The pick up is greater and the smoke produced is less. Natural food contains more energy and less of waste material. Your body will be healthy, and automatically your mind will be sound. It keeps the ailments and stinking smell away from the body.
Second type of food
It contains 60% raw and 40% cooked food. Cooked food should not have salt, oil and spices. From this food 90% of waste material is excreted and 10% remains in the body, because of 40% cooked food! The waste material formed here is more than in the first type. This type of food is like the gasoline used for ordinary cars with a pickup of 80%. Of course there will not be major problems with this type of food, but it is not as pure as the first type. Occasionally you will be prone to small disturbances like cold or fever.
Third type of food
This is totally boiled food. You eat salt, oil, and spices but only vegetarian food. You eat spicy pickles also. Fifty percent of its waste material stagnates and only 50% is excreted. Compare this type of food to diesel fuel. It has 50% pick up and 50% smoke. Because of fifty percent of stagnated waste in the body, everything that is excreted as sweat, urine and feces, emit stinking smell. Mouth too. There is uncleanness in the cells, and that is spread all over, resulting in this putrefying smell. You will have some illnesses fairly frequently. You will feel very restless.
Fourth type of food
This food contains salt, oil, spices, preserved food, meat, pork, sodas, liquors, etc. Seventy percent of its waste material stagnates in the cells and only 30% is released. It is like kerosene with less pick up and more smoke. It gives you only smoke, and cannot power a vehicle. The urine and feces emit a very bad smell. The cells live in a polluted atmosphere. They die early. New cells are born in their place in a great number, but what is the use? Most of the energy produced from the food is spent towards birth and death of cells. People who eat this type of food get tired easily. They are likely to be affected by chronic diseases and are prone to irritation and anger. They can never be peaceful. There is no sign of good health in their body.
Do you now understand why food influences our physical health and even mental abilities? So those who consume food that provides more energy and less waste material have healthy bodies and sound minds. The smell that comes out of the cell is based on the accumulated waste material in the cell. So you can decide for yourself whether you are healthy or not, depending on the smell that emits from your body. Generally, we feel we are healthy if our blood tests, X-rays and scans are normal. On the other hand, if there is a trace of sugar in your blood test, you fear you’ve become diabetic. But neither of these is true. You don’t develop diabetes on the day you had your test done or three four days prior to that! It is a result of the decay of your cells for ages. Can we foresee cancer in the blood tests? No! We get ourselves tested two or three times a year and boast of ourselves that we are healthy.
In a way cheating ourselves Now let’s learn whether you are a perfectly healthy person or not. If your cells are pure and clean you are really a healthy person. How do you know that? – You shouldn’t have bad breath even if you don’t brush your teeth for a few days. Your saliva also does not smell bad. Then you are very healthy. – You should be able to bathe without body soap. Your body should not give off a smell even if you have not bathed for two or three days. – Your sweat should not stink. The clothes you wear, even if you wear them continuously for a few days, should not have a bad odor. That’s a healthy sign. – You urinate and the bathroom shouldn’t smell. The urine shouldn’t have a foul smell or a bad odor. Then you are totally healthy. – Your motion should not give off a bad odor. It should instead smell like the food you ate. If that is the case, you are healthy. Those who win on the above five tests don’t require any further testing. There is no doubt about it. You will have that kind of perfect health within six months if you follow the first or second type of food mentioned above strictly. The waste material produced in the cells traverse from the cells to the excretory organs and from there back to cells. Since they cycle this way, they pollute the body and the cells.
The water in the cells receives the stinking smell from the cells and flows all over the body. This is the smell we sense when waste materials leave the body. Flowers can’t give a stinking smell and dirt cannot send forth a fragrance by pouring perfume over it. The same way the smell in us cannot be concealed by any number of toothpastes, soaps, powders, perfumes, scents, or sprays over the body or in the bathroom. We are not cleaning our inner bodies. If we don’t do that, however much we clean the body externally it is not helpful. What’s the use of washing our hands if our feet are dirty? But that is what we are doing! The cells should be cleaned. They should be cleaned through fasting. If we fast and take in only honey, energy goes into and the waste material will be driven out of the cells, thereby cleaning them. That’s why fasting is compared to penance. Fasting makes the body holy. For those who fast, the stinking smell disappears, and new cells are formed fast. If you follow the food regimen that we have discussed so far for five, six months, then the cells will become purified. You don’t have to fast in such a case. But of course you should eat before sunset and put a full stop to food after that! Only then it is possible. Don’t you want to live life long without any disease? Then, eat only natural food. Enjoy the tastes of nature as they are! In return, you will have perfect health as long as you live. Realize that Health is Happiness and Wealth too! You can prove to one and all that good health is not beyond the reach of man! Nothing is impossible in the lexicon of man.
