    • 1. Importance of Raw Foods
    • 2. • Dr. Stanley S. Bass, N.D., D.C., Ph.C. says, "The closer the food comes to the natural state in which it occurs, or the closer we come to its raw, unfired form, the higher its quality is."
    • 3. Destruction of nutrients• Loss of phytonutrients (beta-carotene, lycopene, etc)• 80% loss of vitamins• 100% loss of minerals• 50% of protein becomes denatured
    • 4. Enzymes
    • 5. Protein
    • 6. Protein• Simon N. Young, the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Psychiatry, states that, contrary to popular belief, eating turkey (which is associated with tryptophan and drowsiness) and other high-protein foods (which actually contain the same amount of tryptophan) will not drastically increase serotonin levels in the brain. The blood-brain barrier only allows regulated amounts of amino acids to enter the brain, and tryptophan must compete with more abundant amino acids in order to enter.• Study: people who consumed a carbohydrate-rich meal absorbed more tryptophan than those who consumed a protein-rich meal.• Tryptophan has to compete with other amino acids. 7
    • 7. Amino Acids• Degraded when cooked• Extremely plentiful in raw produce 8
    • 8. Amino Acids 9
    • 9. Loss of oxygen and hormones• Cooking removes the oxygen, water and hormones from food
    • 10. • It can take up to a year to recover from a nutritional deficiency
    • 11. Gluten Intolerance• Celiac disease means you can’t absorb nutrients• Not getting important nutrients in for your mental health
    • 12. Toxins
    • 13. Pesticides• Pesticides destroys dopamine in the brain• Contributes to Parkinsons and depression
    • 14. Stress• Cortisol kills brain cells• Researchers dissected salmon after death from swimming upstream to spawn, and found death is due to cortisol toxicity• When researchers removed adrenal glands, salmon lived for up to 1 year after spawning• Stress gets in the way of sufficient stomach acid creation (HCl critical to happiness. Digestion = absorption of amino acids = synthesis of neurotransmitters = more serotonin)
    • 15. Stress• Those who are depressed have been shown to breathe less deeply than those who are not depressed• De-stress by deep breathing• 5 deep breaths, hold for 6 seconds• 4x/day• This decreases tension
    • 16. Inflammation• Sore throat / swollen joint / stubbed finger• Immune response• Bunch of chemicals our body produces to fight infection and causes swelling• Inflammation is a major cause of inflammation (6hrs or less)• Modest sleep los for just 1 week means increased inflammation
    • 17. Inflammation• Zoloft decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines• Taking an aspirin greatly enhances the effect of an antidepressant just because it’s anti-inflammatory• Slow destruction of the brain
    • 18. Inflammation & Allergies• Allergies produce all inflammatory cytokines• People with allergies have a much higher incidence of depression
    • 19. Why are there no animal products on this retreat?• The China Study• Food allergies• “30% of schizophrenics are cured, yes, cured, when they cut out dairy” Dr Abram Hoffer• The trouble with casein/whey: bodybuilders developing schizophrenic symptoms
    • 20. The Trouble with Dairy• Ice cream has a morphine like effect in your body: relaxes, calms, helps sleep
    • 21. Water• When you’re young, ratio of water inside the cell to outside the cells is 1.2 to 1• When we are 60, the ratio is 0.8 to 1• Keep from dehydrating by keeping to drink water and eat raw foods – cooking causes water to evaporate and leave the food
