That’s what it is for me!
Here, look at this. I’ll give you an inside view! If you haven’t yet seen The Macrobiotic Path to Total Health by Michio Kushi and Alex Jack, this is a must read. Pages 186-199! Full of information, and the basis of my class, sharing great research and understanding. Even testimonials, and quote from Dr. Andrew Weill’s success with patients. They have got it going on, and it’s so simple.
For example, and I’m sharing some of my notes with you for the class, but really I want to shout this out to the world. Mr. Kushi describes the Five Stages of Digestion so brilliantly. Brilliant? Because he starts with Cooking as the First Stage. Here look at this:
First Stage: Cooking – prepares the food for easier digestion.
Second Stage: Chewing – stimulates the release of digestive juices in the mouth.
Third Stage: Digestion – coordinates the smooth breakdown on nutrients in the digestive tract thru the release of acids by the stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas and duodenum.
Fourth Stage: Absorption – assimilates metabolized food in the villi of the small intestine.
Fifth Stage: Transformation – transforms absorbed food into white and red blood cells, body cells, tissues, organs and consciousness.
Now I ask you, how many of us thought of cooking as the first stage of digestion! Wow, that’s something to think about before we stop and pick up fast food to go, or order one of each desserts at our favorite restaurant, or plan a meal at home. So food selection and preparation – cooking – is the first step. In our macrobiotic cooking classes we are presenting you a fabulous menu for Late Summer getting close to the Fall time of year. This is the season we begin pampering our digestive organs, particularly stomach, pancreas and spleen, and just around the corner, spotlight’s on the intestine and lungs. All crucial to the Third Stage of digestion!
