  • Detrimental Effects of Animal Foods

    DianeHB

    12/12/2014

     

    DianeHB: I recently came across the information that it is now widely accepted that a hormone called "insulin-like growth factor 1" (IGF-1), which is produced by the body in greater amounts when animal ("complete") proteins are consumed, speeds up the process of aging in adults and promotes cancer growth. To me this sounds like the biggest reason why large amounts of animal protein has detrimental effects on the human body in the long run, even though it is not the only reason. This information seems to corroborate with the epidemiological studies I've read, which correlated increase the in animal protein consumption with heart disease, diabetes, and various cancers in different populations. I'm wondering if this is the main reason why you've mentioned many times through Troy that animal protein is not optimal for the human body and that our level of consumption is the root of many diseases.

     

    MEntity: Responding to your next question:

     

    MEntity: The information you have cited is, indeed, a part of the picture of detriment to the human body in terms of consuming as a food source. Eating the flesh of creatures can be useful in terms of survival, but beyond this, the cumulative effects are detrimental.

     

    MEntity: There are a number of "reasons," though, that are not addressed in the information cited, but this information describes part of the syndrome of effects.

     

    DianeHB: There are a couple other detrimental effects I came across, but they're not as "big" as this one. One was the increase of acidity in the body, which causes the body to use calcium from the bones to balance the pH.

     

    DianeHB: Increase of acidity when animal protein is consumed.

     

    DianeHB: And another was the increase in uric acid (waste product from breakdown of protein) that is hard on the kidneys in large amounts.

     

    MEntity: Because of the current state of the industry, very little can be revealed, or is even pursued as knowledge, in terms of just how detrimental flesh is for the Human body, and how much it contributes to an array of ailments, genetic mutations, cancers, and immune deficiencies. It also contributes to social issues that undermine peace and harmonious means of communication. The effects go much further than immediate health. It affects collective health, as well.

     

    MEntity: What you cite is only the "tip of the iceburg."

     

    DianeHB: Yeah, there seems to be a lot of denial seeing as I've never heard about IGF-1 until now, and its effects have been studied for decades.

     

    MEntity: There is less-detrimental effects from "GMO's" and "processed foods" than there is from animal flesh.

      Excerpt from [Ask Michael: December 2015]
       
      VIP: Does diet have any effect on the ability to access the higher centers, or the ease with which, access to the higher centers can occur? (I understand that the higher moving center is designed to be easy to access as-is, so if it makes no difference with regard to that one, I would like to know about the other two higher centers.).
       
      [Michael Entity]:
      Accessing the Higher Centers is accessible to all under any and all circumstances. They are designed as accessible and functioning regardless of condition of the body or state of consciousness. They must function or the body dies.
       
      However, there is a difference between these Centers functioning in default, and when one consciously begins to access these for use as tools beyond their default.
       
      For most, and for many lifetimes, these Centers are only accessed consciously during extreme conditions, duress, and intense situations.
       
      Profound pain in the body, "heart," or "mind" can open one to these Centers in conscious ways.
       
      Profound pleasure in the body, "heart," and "mind" can open one to these Centers in conscious ways.
       
      Access through extremes of pain or pleasure are forms of intervention in the life, and are not only misunderstood and misinterpreted, but this kind of access can lead to addictions, escapism, fetishes, etc.
       
      Other ways that these Centers are accessed are through Laughter, Tears, and Happiness.
       
      When there is access through these, they can range in degrees of awareness and consciousness, from subconscious to full consciousness.
       
      The reason these Centers are so accessible in so many ways is because there is no interest in a design that withholds higher functioning from any individual based on their choices, behaviors, conditions, health, etc.
       
      With all of this being said, when one begins to seek understanding and use of these Centers in conscious ways, then the degree of conscious use and value can be dependent on several factors that hook into many elements of the life.
       
      In such cases, then diet becomes vital.
       
      We can speak of "diet" in broad terms here to include various ways in which one consumes as a means of "feeding" oneself.
       
      This can be food, relationships, entertainment, exercise, etc.
       
      For example, if one has compartmentalized one's food diet to the point of ignoring the impact it may have on health, other creatures, other people, and the planet, then that compartmentalizing affects how well one can access a Higher Center.
       
      If one is abusive in relationships, or abused, where one's confidence is fed, then one has limitations on his or her conscious use of a Higher Center.
       
      The equation is rather simple:
       
      The more conscious one is in various areas of the life where one seeks to feed oneself, the greater degree of conscious access one has to the Higher Centers.

      [Excerpt from Ask Michael: February 2016]
       
      Question: Hi Michael. My question is about type 2 diabetes. I'm going to assume the metaphysical cause has to do with either anger or fear...but I'd like some insight into what would be a physical and/or metaphysical cure. whatever insight you can offer in the time allotted would be great.
       
      MEntity:
      There is some validity to your assessment that anger and fear can be involved, but it is more about the process by which one avoids intensity that can contribute to the condition.
       
      Whether it is feeling lonely, angry, frustrated, conflicted, challenged, fearful, unloved, etc. diabetes in its various stages usually reflects how the person processes those experiences. In most cases there is an effort to glaze over them, to mask them, to make them more acceptable and presentable, and especially if they are obstacles to attention or affection.
       
      At the heart of diabetes is a need to sustain a false bridge over the depths of one's feelings so as to accommodate the need for attention or affection.
       
      By "attention" we mean any acknowledgment in any form and this might be negative.
       
      Diabetes is reversible in most cases, but does require a strict management of conscious choice, action, and diet.
       
      For most, it is "easier" to manage the masking of pain in medicinal ways than in rewiring the psyche.
       
      We can explore this in further exchanges, but this is a brief synopsis.

      The following is from a private session on April 7, 2016 in which I asked about cavity care:
       
      [Me]
      So now I want to ask about Dental Health:
       
      Recently I was informed by several dentists that I have 3 or 4 small cavities on my teeth, but one dentist said he'd put them under observation to see what happens. I've also recently been reading on dental remineralization, and was wondering to what extent are teeth able to regenerate or remineralize, and how is that process aided or suppressed?
       
      [Michael]
      As for your health:
       
      Remineralization is valid and can be promoted with the use of commercial products or home remedies of choice. Cavities can be halted, and with various oral treatments such as "oil pulling" and remineralization, there can come to be some amount of reversal of the cavities. This depends upon the extent to which there is damage, but it is possible.
       
      Moving away from the use of fluoride-based treatments can be helpful. There was a time when fluoride was of some benefit, but it is not necessary and can affect the acidic balance of the mouth so that remineralization is suppressed.
       
      If you wish to improve upon and accelerate the remineralization process, it would require a serious avoidance of most sugars, or at least an increase in the cleansing of the mouth if sugars are consumed.
       
      [Me]
      That would include fruit sugars?
       
      [Michael]
      Refined sugars would be of more concern, but any sugars lingering in the mouth can be problematic, so even fruit sugars would do well to be monitored. Fruit sugars need not be avoided, but a rinse or brushing soon after consuming would be helpful.
       
      [Me]
      Also, one of the dentists suggested that there was a sort of point-of-no-return if the cavities get too deep (past the enamel and into the dentin layer) and he recommended filling them in.
       
      [Michael]
      The dentist in question is correct.
       
      It is not impossible for remineralization to help, but probably not to reverse the condition.
       
      If you wish to remineralize, it would simply be a matter of committing to a practice and monitoring the progress.
       
      Even if you were in need of repairs, this practice is beneficial and preventative.

      [ksh] Could Michael tell me if big sugar and simple starch intakes affects my body?
       
      [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course this affects your body.
       
      [ksh] In what way. Am I more sensitive than others are?
       
      [Michael_Entity]
      It is sometimes an examination method through food that allows the body to accommodate more of your energy fluctuations as they arise. In some instances the body is INFLUENCED by external stimuli that then affects the more subtle emotional and energetic qualities of the Personality; in other cases, the body SEEKS stimulants that allow the body expression of the internal energetic fluctuations.
       
      For instance, those with higher Frequencies tend to crave more caffeine as a means to bypass the societal imprinting that suppresses their naturally “high” Frequency. Caffeine allows the imprinting that inhibits Frequency to be bypassed. It is the same with extremes in sugar cravings, starch addictions, and other food-related swings.
       
      In your case, you seek these foods as a way to process some emotional elements as they come up. Most of your cravings are linked to socializing issues and lack of fulfillment of the Community and Exchange need.
