90 Day Regimen Breakthrough – Week 5

An Introduction to Food and Nutrition

General Principles

 

Principles and Concepts of Food and Nutrition

Everything about regimen roots back to the fundamental principle of resonance. Any challenge you have related to your food and nutrition is a reflection of how your overall resonance organ is functioning, and an invitation for you to work on more fully unfolding that content within yourself. Issues of emotional eating, or other examples of an unhealthy relationship to food is touched on in the first video this week:

You can find extra reading on the concepts of satisfaction and sequential eating here.

 

 Your homework from this video:

  1. What’s your overall relationship with food and nutrition?
  2. How does stress or anxiety influence your eating habits?
  3. What’s your relationship with food in terms of resonance and attraction?
  4. Is there anything you’re confused about by your diet, or your relationship to it?

A Framework to Navigate the Practicalities of Food and Nutrition

The world of food and nutrition is vast, and the best way to keep from getting lost in the details is to have a solid foundation of principles. Dr. Hahnemann spent his last years in Paris, and compared to the small rural towns in Germany he practiced in most of his life, the rich abundant diet available in Paris led to a state of complex chronic illness, unlike anything he had treated before. The lesson from this story is that the best general approach to food an nutrition is to stay as close as possible to the simple, nourisihing foods of traditional ways of life, and to consciously choose not to partake in the rich, complex food choices available in urban centres.

Here are some of the practical approaches you can use:

Your homework from this video:

Work in your journal this week on noticing where you view your own food and nutrition choices through the lens of ‘morality’ – seeing a food choice as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, and by implication, that you are a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ person.

Focus instead on the actual experience of food, of the process of eating, and of the emotions and sensations that you are feeling, rather than any moral judgments of it, and of yourself. 

Work to see it as simply an experience that is connected to particular results and consequences.

  1. Hi Jeff
    Just a comment on the info about raw foods. I understood you to say that eating raw food is beneficial to digestion by optimizing digestive energy. Would you agree that this applies to most raw but not all raw foods? Raw foods that come from under neath the ground like carrots actually benefit from being cooked;whereas raw foods like an apple that have been ‘cooked’ by the sun are more easily assimilated.
    When a \sick’ person is following an ‘invalid diet’ we usually ‘cook’ their foods because their digestion forces are ‘too weak’. A truly healthy person can handle raw foods, but some raw foods DO require more digestive energy, so it is not necessarily the case that energy is conserved by eating raw foods. What is wonderful about eating raw foods is that all their enzymes, vitamins and minerals are intact. Thoughts?

  2. I’m happy to be in this module now. I find selecting and preparing food so stressful these days with a deluge of contradictory information. Raw. Vegan. Paleo. Auyervedic. Candida. Blood type. I’ve done them all for at least a year over the past 20 years (Candida was only 6 mos). When I sink in to me and ask: what do I want to eat that will nourish me the most – I receive: daal. Lentils. That is what I want to eat.
    Not fresh, not local.

    And winter is here. Fresh local food = roots and meat and dairy and eggs. I’ve got good supply of eggs and dairy. I get heartburn when I eat meat. My Blood type is A.
    Argh!!!!!
    (does that answer your question: what is my overall relationship with food and nutrition?) lol. Thanks Jeff.
    I’m loving this course. You’ve done a fantastic job of creating bite size pieces of clarity.

    When I journal, I usually copy and paste the questions from the webpage into my journal. Have you thought about creating a workbook to accompany this? (i.e a word doc of the questions you pose).
