Commonsense Health

I believe in commonsense, no matter what the experts say, whatever experts they are.

I was researching into raw food, but honestly, I enjoy a good bowl of hot soup and noodles cooked in delicious broths.

This is an interesting extract from Dr. Mercola’s website:

“The Climate Connection

This type of regimen is unquestionably effective as a cleansing, detoxification program for a short period of time, especially in the tropics or in warm weather. But it is impractical and unnatural–possibly even unwise–as a prolonged dietary program in the dead of winter in frigid northern climates. For most people it certainly is not warming or satisfying enough. Even raw food proponent Gabriel Cousens reported feeling chronically “cold” during the first several winters after he adopted a 100 percent raw food intake. It just doesn’t feel right.

If you think about it, your body just naturally leans toward more cooling, fresh, raw, live food like salads in the summer. Do you honestly feel like cranking up the heat to cook dinner when the temperature outside is a sweltering 90 degrees F? In the winter, however, when your body is trying to marshal its forces to stay warm and keep you alive, would a plate of fresh sprouts and lettuces satisfy you, or would you just naturally gravitate toward a nice, hot steaming bowl of soup or stew to warm you up after weathering a cold, snowy trip home?

Listening to your body is a key. This is one of the cornerstone principles in our new book, Dr. Mercola’s Total Health Program. Everyone is unique and what you eat should be a reflection of your own personal needs, lifestyle, health, location, season and spiritual evolution.”

CONCLUSION: Hubby will soon be enjoying the occasional dimsum, pho, laksa, nasi lemak.
