When a person is sick there are generally deep nutritional deficiencies that need to be satisfied. Scientific experts continually tell us to take appropriate amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, saturated fats to unsaturated fats, calcium in balance with magnesium, proper proportions of fat to protein and carbohydrates to proteins and oils… the list goes on forever. This balance can be daunting. When a person is sick and suffers from brain fog or pathogenic toxicity deciphering the protocol can be daunting. 

It doesn’t have to be that hard.

“It’s too scientific,” says Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride (31:00). “When things get too scientific, the more scientific they are the further away from the truth they are usually. If you think about all the mess humanity has created on this planet it’s all very scientifically based.”

McBride is a medical doctor, neruologist, neurosurgeon and nutritional expert who authored GAPS (Gut and Psychology Snydrome) and Put Your Heart In Your Mouth. She is considered the forerunner on healing a damaged microbiome, the root cause of illness.

She goes on to say, “Science is not something we should take as the gospel.”

She also says the body knows what to do and can heal itself, given the proper support. This is why she believes each person should be their own health advocate, acting as a detective finding out what the body is saying it needs.

Statements like these have caused criticism for McBride. She has been told by other medical doctors her train of thought, if fed properly the body can fix itself, is unacceptable.

The only problem is, it works.

Scientific information constipation can be proven with the break down of animal fats balancing out saturated, polunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids. Analyzing animal fat for its specific content and balance then subsequently avoiding animal fat in the diet can cause a lot of sickness for a person.

Animal fats and meats nourish to body.

Vegetables cleanse.

IMAG2234This is why Dr. Gerson advised his cancer patients to avoid animal fats and meats while eliminating cancer. His protocol to use vegetables to cleanse the body of sickness then rebuild with animal fats and meats, specifically with cancer, has shown amazing results and benefits for countless patients.

Analyzing the scientific ratios in food, picking apart each molecule and transforming food to what fits us perfectly on paper isn’t necessarily beneficial to the body. This is also evident with GMO foods and the epidemic of illnesses on the rise correlated with their introduction to the food supply. 

Instead of picking apart food we would be better off eating food in it’s natural state, without man-made chemicals, soil additives and alterations.

When God makes food He does not ask us to separate parts of the food to acquire nutrition. In addition, there is not one food found on the planet today that contains just one nutritional ingredient. They all work synergistically regarding the body’s need, by perfect design.

McBride says all food, in its natural unadulterated pure food form is what our bodies need. She says to consider what you are really hungry for, eat what your body craves. If you are craving donuts or soda, of course, you need to be wise and determine that’s not healthy but if you are craving garlic, cayenne pepper or a steak then that is what your body needs nutritionally.  She says, “Just eat it, enjoy it and you will become healthier from it.” (33:27)

As she works with the most damaged and ill patients she sees the outcome consistently. She says, “You can not possibly compare what science knows with what nature knows.”
