Today is ready cash: USE IT!"
Be sure to spend it well. And be present!
I had a wonderful, free, outdoor, calm lunch today with Mother. Mother Nature that is. She gave me lunch at noon. Cherry leafs and cherries with wild strawberries (smultron in Sweden). It was delicious. I'm very grateful for her kindness and abundance. She even invited me to come tomorrow as well. I think I will. I'm very gratefull and filled with love today. Happy, happy, happy!
These last two days have been exciting in another way as well. Me and my great friend Pierre (http://rawild.wordpress.com/) just started a new community for rawfooders in Sweden and the Nordic countries. It's in swedish, yet norwegan and danish works fine as well. The basic idea of the community (GreenRoomSverige) is to bring rawfooders from Sweden and other Nordic contries togehter to stimulate growth and prosperity within the raw community. The aim is to create an island of union among rawfooders, a collage of knowledge for those interested in embarking on the raw journey and to share information on real life meetups/lectures/events. I have noticed, living alone with my rawness in a "cooked" environment, that feeling a spirit of togetherness is important. To be part of something. To share values, lifestyle and foods with others are as much a cultural as a social behavour. Several times I have strayed from eating raw foods towards "normal" foods just to realise I want to eat raw. Thinking about is afterwards I have several times concluded it was not because I wanted the food itself I ate it. I wanted a sence of communion. I wanted to feel unity with the people I surround myself with on a daily basis. It is true that who you spend time with is who you become. So then there are three options.
1/ change back (not an option really :) )
2/ change others (impossible, they have to change themselfs, thou you can lead the way)
3/ change your peer group ( whatever group of people that you care what they think about you and who you often spend time with).
So obviously option three is the best way, for this you can control. Yet it's hard to find alike people when it comes to raw food. Normally people don't wear T-shirts saying "I'm a rawfooder" (unfortunately - there should be a "law" :D ) And from the number of rawfooders in Sweden (outside the big cities) you probably would be alone waering that shirt anyway. So GreenRoomSvergie is a way to connect people in Swden and the Nordic countries. To creat new peers, new relationships and a feelings of belonging and unity.

Well, enough about that. Now let's take a look at the head line:
"What if everything we know about digestion is wrong?"
This is taken from the teachings of "the New Biology" by dr. Robert O. Young. A microbiologist who have devoted his life to health and nutrition and a new understanding of the human organism. He has done extencive blood tests - dry and live - studying the effects certain foods have on our blood and what dis-ease and health looks like in the blood for the last two decades. He strongly advocates the delicate alkaline/acid balance of the body and how disturbances in this balance leads to sickness and dis-ease. Among his theories is a rebellian view of what the function of the stomach is. Dr Young's theory is that the stomach is not an organ of digestion but an organ of alkalinity. It's main task is to produce sodium bicarbonate (NaCOH3) in order to alkalise the foods ingested. The fact that the stomach should be acidic and contain hydrochloric acid or HCL to digest food
"is one of the biggest scientific misconceptions ever. First, the stomach is NOT and organ of digestion. Most so-called digestion starts in the mouth. That's why your mom said to chew your food. The stomach is an organ that alkalizes the food and liquids that you eat. The stomach cells, called the cover cells, secrete sodium bicarbonate onto the ingested food and drink to alkalize the food, not to digest the food. For every molecule of sodium bicarbonate produced by the stomach for alkalizing, a molecule of hydrochloric acid is produced as a waste product. Hydrochloric acid or HCL never touches the food or drink but falls into the gastric pits of the stomach away from the food and drink as the sodium bicarbonate rises to the top to alkalize the food and/or liquids ingested. This is necessary in order to prepare the food in an alkaline state for the duodenum and the small intestine where the liquid food is then biologically transformed into stem cells. There is NO part of the alimentary canal that does not secret sodium bicarbonate for alkalizing. In conclusion, the stomach is an organ of contribution and alkalizing, not a digestive organ as medical savants would have us believe."
I stongly recomend you to take about 70 minutes of your time to invesigate more closely the human organism and "the New Biology". Please do. there is a great lecture on the subject, by dr. young here or go to youtube and search for Robert Young Omaha. It's a seven part lecture, be sure to watch them all (each is about 10 minutes so you don't have to watch them all at the same time.)
In divine love and sound health
