Article #4: Excerpts From “Unfired Food And Tropho-Therapy” by Dr. George J. Drews, AI.D.
The Unfired Diet is truly attractive,
Is moral, aesthetic, delicious and good,
And further than this, it is more than preventive –
It cures the disease that come from cooked food.
Cheer up sisters and brothers and rejoice with me for I have found the key that unlocks the door to physical, mental, moral and spiritual salvation and I will tell you how to use that key if you will but listen.
Those who are seeking for absolute health, longevity and refinement should understand that THE BODY, MIND, SPIRIT AND SOUL ARE ABSOLUTELY INTERDEPENDENT.
Hence there is no sane mind, no spiritual perfection and no salvation of the soul without a healthy body. A healthy body can only be built and maintained with Nature’s perfect (unperverted and unfired) food, pure water, fresh air, sunshine, exercise, restful sleep and a serene mental attitude savored with lofty aspirations.
It has been the earnest aim of the author to reintroduce a natural health-sustaining, disease-resisting, disease-eliminating, brawn- and brain-building diet consistent with the present state of human evolution, civilization and refinement. A diet which shall promote further evolutionary progress on all the planes of the body, mind, spirit and soul. A diet physiologically and financially economical, artistic, inviting and delicious. All logical minds will agree with me that this can only be accomplished by feeding on natural food which contains all the elements for building a healthy body and which promotes all the natural functions of life.
Here it must be understood that cooked food is not natural because its chemical constitution is changed (perverted) by the destructive power of the applied high temperature. The sun energy (galama) is dissipated. The volatile essences are exploded. The tonic elements (organic salts) have been freed, mineralized and neutralized. The proteins are coagulated. The starches are rendered so soluble that they enter the circulation undigested. The atomic arrangement of sugar is rendered incongenial. And the oils are fused. Therefore cooked food readily ferments and decays in the alimentary canal; besides, its consistency does not give the proper exercise to the organs of cominution, digestion and absorption; and it has a tendency to puzzle, confuse and pervert the alimentary functions, thus laying the foundation for disease.
Natural unfired food promotes all natural functions of the body. With natural foods, only, can be laid the foundation for the maintenance of a truly healthful and beautiful body, spirit and soul. By means of unfired food can Nature keep the body clean, heal all diseases of body and mind and eradicate immoral tendencies. It is unnatural food which interferes with the natural metabolism of the system, which hinders and perverts natural growth, which retards recuperation and reconstruction, which results in amemia and atonicity, which promotes disorderly proliferation, which causes abnormal craving and inebrety and which results in nearly all the physical, mental and moral diseases and pains which ignorant, misinformed, deluded, ensnared and perverted humanity is heir to. Every attempt to improve on natural food by artificial means results in an absolute failure—it cannot be done.
Every unnatural thing or action in the realm of nature has inherent the cause of its own destruction. Hence for every infection and malfaction nature has an acute reaction (crisis) which results in salvation for those who obey her laws; but interfere with that acute reaction by means of medicine or surgery, and it may disappear only to reappear in a later chronic or fatal reaction. “Interference perpetuates both good and evil” hence—”Resist not evil.”
There is a “Beneficent Design” in unperverted Nature, but also a malefic design in perverted and artificial Nature….Natural food, fresh water and live air in connection with plenty of sunshine, exercise and rest, is the only reliable “Materia Panacea.”
