Chronic inflammation is a long-term, low-grade condition that persists in your cells and tissues, and plays a key role in many health problems.
In fact, inflammation is involved in 8 of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States—heart disease, cancer, chronic lower-respiratory diseases, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, pneumonia/influenza, and kidney disease, among other maladies.
One of the most stunning effects that happen to you when you switch from eating cooked foods to raw is the loss of swelling and irritation in your body; this change is especially notable in the face.
Inflammation is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, damaged cells, or irritants. Cooked foods stimulate the immune system to cause an inflammatory response.
When you eat cooked food, your body reacts as if poisoned. This triggers an immune response called leucocytosis, where the white blood cells increase.
Leucocytosis was once considered a normal reaction to eating, but it does not happen when we eat raw food.
Cooking renders food toxic! The toxicity of the deranged debris of cooking is confirmed by the doubling and tripling of white blood cells after eating a cooked meal. The white blood cells are the first line of defence and are, collectively, popularly called “the immune system.”
When I see pictures of myself from years ago I am astounded by the way I looked. The facial swelling, exhausted expression, and the accompanying lethargy showing all over my whole body in those years were totally evident.
I must add that by adopting the correct raw food diet, you will naturally eat less salt (if any) and will not need to use any pharmaceutical drugs for the most part, both of which contribute to further inflammation and autoimmune disorders.
It will be a total revelation for you to see how, after adopting a raw food approach, you will suddenly lose the swelling from your body and face and start feeling lighter, fitter, and even more attractive.
