What is a Healing Diet?

A healing diet is one that allows detoxification and healing to occur in the body naturally, the way God intended. Pollutants are bombarding our bodies on a daily basis, in the form of the foods we eat (processed, sugar/chemical-laden), the water we drink, and the air around us. Healing diets help to give the body a break so that it can heal. The body is returned to an ALKALINE state, which is how it runs best. Most disease accrues when the body is in an Acidic state, along with stress. Healing diets can also often be considered sugar free diets.  There are many good sites that go into more detail with all the medical jargon, so lets move on.

Recipes on this site that are Healing Diet listed will contain no sugar of any kind, no grains (which turn to sugar when digested), no fruit (except blueberries, granny-smith apples, and grapefruit – all in moderation), and not certain vegetables that contain sugar. By removing all sugar the body is allowed to heal naturally. Good pure water is used to help flush the toxins from the body. The recipes here are made to work within many Healing Diets such as; Detox Diets,  MaximizedLiving Diets,  Detoxification Diets and also will work with other similar diets.
