Our planet comprises 70% water and 30% earth. Our body comprises 70% water and 30% flesh, bones, etc. Therefore, our food must also contain 70% water and 30% grains, pulses, rice, etc. The pH value of our blood must be in between 7.36 to 7.4. Our body keeps struggling daily for maintaining this range.

On eating more wheat and other foods, the pH value of our body becomes acidic. This increased acidity reduces the elasticity of our bones thus making them harder resulting in various diseases like sugar, high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, knee pain, cervical, and cancer as well. Our food must be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic.

Humans Also Need Soil Like Plants

A plant is rooted to Mother Earth, but its stems start becoming dry and hard thus losing its elasticity. What should be done with this plant? We should water it daily and after few days you will see that the plant is becoming greener again and its stems have regained its elasticity. Does this happen just because of watering the plant? If so, then we should have kept it in a bucket full of water. This would have made the plant greener again. But it won’t happen. Why? Because the need of the plant is not alone water but a combination of water and soil. Water acts as a medium of transportation. Earth provides all necessary nutrients like Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Multi-Vitamins, etc. With the help of water, these nutrients reach every part of the plant and make it greener and healthy.

Are humans rooted to earth like plants? No. The roots of a human body are in the stomach. The food of a human being must also be a combination of water and soil. Soil for humans comes in the form of fruits and vegetables. God has made soil for humans in the form of fruits and vegetables. Our soil comes with delicious taste and in so many varieties.

But, unfortunately, we humans remain unaware and ignorant about the gifts of nature and keep running after unhealthy and acidic food.

In general, what is the daily diet of humans? In breakfast - Fried and stuffed paranthas or kachori or idli or bhature, in lunch – chapati and cooked vegetable, in evening snacks - tea with biscuits or samosa or breadpakora, and in dinner – daal roti or daal chawal. So, basically, we humans keep eating acidic food entire day. Is this food a combination of water and soil? No, these foods make our bones hard and dry. Because of which, we are nowadays suffering from so many diseases including arthritis, joint pains, asthma, dislocation, cervical, spondylitis, gall bladder stones, etc. Our knees are getting deprived of Greece or calcium. Taking calcium externally for years won’t fulfil the need of calcium in our body because it gets fulfilled from inside. If your bones are elastic, then its normal but if your bones are hard and dry then this indicates a disease. When you eat alkaline food, your bones will regain the lost elasticity.

When a person met with an accident or is scared or is in any emergency then what’s the first thing he asks for? Water. Similarly, when you eat so much acidic food then also your body needs water. For instance, when any guest comes to your home and you give him fried snacks to eat. After some time, he will surely ask for water. This indicates that the body also undergoes an accidental situation and needs water. During this situation, our digestive system gets terrified by the amount of acidic food you just have given to it. Therefore, it demands water. Our body tries to heal from inside from the effects of that acidic food.

Now, if you would have given your guest a plate full of salad or fresh and seasonal fruits then will he ask for water? No. This showcases that the body got an alkaline diet which completes the need of water and soil both. After having too much spicy food or too much sweets also, our body demands water.

If you throw garbage on the clothes of your guest, then it will be considered as insult but if you offer garbage food in his plate then it will be considered as respect and good hospitality. That’s how the world has become nowadays. The reason of all diseases is the food you eat, and solution of all diseases is also the food you eat.
