All health and healing is dependent in large part on an unusual and rare diet. It is not the Standard American Diet (SAD). It is sometimes called a traditional diet– I like to call it a natural diet from naturally grown foods– the way foods were before modern, industrial foods were made, and of course, convenient and fast food.
The proper diet includes many of the foods that we have been taught causes health problems. (That is another story itself). If you cannot get this right and make substantial improvements in your diet, there will be continued degeneration and a lack of regeneration of the cells, and even DNA, within your body. This would be true for physical health and, from logical extension and clinical studies, mental health. (In the movie Super-size Me, the man got progressively sicker during the three months from eating everything at McDonald’s– the hamburgers and fries that do not decompose after a year.)
My interests are in autism and other neurological disorders– prevention, causation and healing with natural foods and other protocols. This is because my son has autism and several other mental disorders. It is interesting to note that this finding correlates with the progressive deterioration of American diets through generations and the increase of vaccinations to the extent that one in six children have learning disabilities and asthma and allergies are escalating. One could only think the rates of increase will climb as these factors are not changing.
