Health benefits of raw food

Boost your immune system and overall health

We all benefit from adding raw foods to our diet. Interestingly, when the diet is composed of 50% raw food and 50% cooked food, we function well and our immune system is in balance.

But when the diet is composed of more than 50% cooked foods, the body starts going into digestive leukocytosis. The immune system reacts to the overabundance of cooked food as if it is under attack, sparking an increase in the white blood cell count, and as result we see increased allergic reactions, chronic inflammation and various types of immune-system dysfunction.

The easiest way to avoid this is to consume lots of raw foods, such as fruit and vegetables, as well as fermented foods, such as kefir or sauerkraut, that are all rich in enzymes and heat sensitive vitamins."
