Food Energy



What you eat is more important than how much you eat. What you eat reflects on your body and soul. If you associate eating only with pleasing your taste buds, being social, and filling your stomach, how about changing your perspective a little?

In Chinese and Greek medicine and the Ayurveda system, the healing of plants from ancient times to the present, the “Sign Doctrine”, an approach based on reading nature, has survived to this day. Essentially, it is because plants that resemble the disease and the organ will have a healing effect on the organ they resemble. It is thought that the outside of plants reflects the inside. Nicolas Culpeper (1616-1654) added dimension to this view by adding astrological features. It has been shown that fruits and vegetables are beneficial to the organs they resemble.

To explain this issue with an example, the walnut has indentations and folds that resemble the brain and has a slightly curved, hemispherical surface. As you may have heard before, it has been proven that walnuts contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential minerals that increase brain functions. Garlic likewise has a stem that extends into the soil to obtain vital nutrients. Garlic and its like, also known as ‘root vegetables’, make the person balanced and strong, and since it is a natural antibiotic, it increases body resistance by providing all the vitamins and minerals the body needs. If you slice the carrot, which is also a root vegetable, into rounds and look at it horizontally, you will notice that it resembles a human eye. Carrots are known to be beneficial to the eyes and increase night vision. Beans look like a kidney and are created with properties that improve kidney function. If there are stones or sand in the kidneys, their excretion will be easier thanks to beans.

It is a system that offers special nutritional recommendations in the style of the Ayurvedic approach, which aims to help people find their balance. It relies heavily on herbal treatments and recommends living a healthy lifestyle. According to Ayurveda, health includes a healthy body, mind, and soul as a whole. The main principles of healthy living are; to include a healthy diet, exercise, meditation, and detoxification.

Knowing your body depends on what you eat. Which foods are good for you, do not strain your digestive system, increase your immunity, maintain your weight balance, and do not weigh down your stomach…?

“One must learn first to know himself before knowing anything else.” Søren Kierkegaard
