When vegetarianism is harmful, as a food rationA person is associated with its level of development, how to change your eating habits without harm to health and what kind of nutrition will be healthy for you - read in the article of a doctor, yogotherapist Andrei Lobanov.
Proper nutrition in modern medicine
The approach to proper nutrition, which is adhered to by modern nutritionists, is based on the idea of a person as a biological organism, the main structure of which is the physical body.
According to this view, food is the main source of energy, and it must have a balanced composition: proteins, fats, carbohydrates, as well as minerals and vitamins.
The physiological energy value of food (the amount of energy that the body receives when it is consumed) is measured in calories.
How many calories are needed, what should beDiet - these standards of proper nutrition are determined for the average person, based on several key parameters - weight, height, age, gender, occupation (physical or intellectual labor). Also, the content of certain substances in the blood is measured, various functional tests and additional studies are done.
Based on these data, the necessaryThe number of calories for different groups of people - young and old, men and women, concludes that how and how much a person should consume to be healthy.
That is, we derive the averaged indicators,Which are considered the norm. If the results of tests and tests differ in a person's examination, appropriate nutrition is assigned to bring the indicators back to normal.
Man is what he eats: food ration and human development
Modern medicine in the concept of healthLays a very narrow range of parameters, mainly biological, and does not take into account the most important categories that determine the health and nutritional needs of a person, the type, quality, quantity of food they need:
- The level of human development, its energy-information interaction with the surrounding world;
- A complex device of a person who is not only a biological organism, but also a social and spiritual being;
- Information (consciousness), inherent in a person, its level and quality, as well as the state of the structures of the person - the bearer of information;
- The informational content of food and its effect on man, his health and development.
Man is a complex, multidimensional system consisting ofNot only from the physical body, but also from other structures that are interrelated and interdependent. These structures are material carriers - physical, mental, pranic, causal, on which the corresponding information - consciousness is deployed. The quality and level of information that is present on these media determine the level of human development.
From what information enters the systemPerson from the outside, including through food, which is also a carrier of information, the state of a person - physical, psychological, mental, energetic - depends.
Information in different environments, media and stateMatter is manifested in different ways. In nature, there are three states of matter - tamas (inert), rajas (excited, active) and sattva (balance). In yoga and the Vedic tradition, food is divided into three kinds according to the Huns. From the state of matter as a carrier of information.
The availability of information for interaction in each of these states of the carrier is also different. Informed, balanced systems are capable of transmitting information without distortion.
Vibration-related information resonates and attracts. It is held on a certain material carrier, if their vibration characteristics correspond to each other.
If the information content of the food correspondsThe information present in the human system, it will be organically integrated into its structure, if not - food will cause imbalance in the system, pollute and inhibit its development.
For example, if a person is in developmentTamasic state, eating sattvic food for him will not be useful, and the information contained in this food will not be perceived by his system.
In other words, if a person eats food that does not correspond to his level of development, it will not be absorbed, and the body will reject it. And people with different levels of development need different foods.
According to the natural food for a person, not connected with fashion or idea, one can judge about its level of development.
Myasoedenie: life at the expense of death
Information that is present in living beings,Which are used by man for food, is preserved after their murder. Animals are close to man on the evolutionary ladder and transmit their information together with the material composition when consumed. Plants on the evolutionary ladder are below, and their information is more difficult to get into the human system, and the material composition is easily and easily integrated into the body.
For this reason, for example, animal virusesAre transmitted to humans, whereas viruses and plant diseases are harmless to him. The information accumulated by the animal during life and, in particular, before death, all of its fears, aggression, all this falls into the human body.
An important milestone in the evolutionary development of man is the transition to a way of life that is not supported by the killing of closely related creatures.
That is, it is necessary to transform programs,They are related to violence, survival and energy through murder, and to break the formed animal food chain. In this case, a mental and energy transformation becomes possible, allowing to perfect all human structures - physical, energy, mental, software.
Then the person will not look at the animal world - our smaller brothers - through the sight of the gun, perceiving them as food that evokes the instinct of murder.
From killing an animal to killing a person, onestep. Instinctive animals kill programs for survival and personal use as a habitual way of being easily transferred to human society. Numerous wars and crimes are a consequence of these programs. As long as a person lives by these attitudes, he does not differ much from representatives of the animal world, but surpasses them by ruthlessness, killing not only for survival, but also for pleasure, for the sake of the process itself.
Meat slaughter gluttony is a great human defect.
In many cultures, knowledge of howWith the help of special rituals to process the food of killed animals for its purification from harmful information: for Jews - kosher food, halal - for Muslims (the blood of animals is considered as an information medium). The rituals of offering food to the deities existed among the ancient Slavs.
Why did these rituals appear?
Perhaps the creation of man and his life in paradise -This is an experiment of higher power, in which man was a kind of laboratory model. Man's knowledge of the two sides of life - good and evil - violated the experiment, as a result of which a person lost his proximity to a higher power and was expelled from paradise where he lived in sterile laboratory conditions, having everything he needed, and where there was no need to survive, fight For resources and to kill to eat. When the experiment was over, the man got into the natural environment, where he was left to himself and had to survive, to pass the evolutionary ladder of development independently, without the help of "senior comrades". This led him to the need to make choices and be responsible for his actions in life, and perhaps this is the gift of God - to begin to create his own life and the life of the planet entrusted to him.
Anyway, the excommunication from paradise was forA person with a decline in status, and he had to descend before eating dead animals. Then there were ways to at least somehow inactivate the destructive effect of slaughter food through special rituals and rituals that have survived to this day.
And what about the protein?
It is worth mentioning separately thatA person needs to eat meat, since in it only the essential amino acids involved in the synthesis of proteins are contained. The question naturally arises - where do the herbivore animals take the protein from?
In 1947, Professor M.I.Volsky expressed the hypothesis that not only bacterial fungal organisms are able to assimilate nitrogen and synthesize amino acids and proteins, but also the human and animal organism can assimilate nitrogen of air and produce protein. Research M.I. Volsky is described in the monograph "The New Concept of Breath", the fourth edition of which was published in 1961.
These studies give grounds to state thatNitrogen of air is not an indifferent gas and an oxygen diluent, as it is believed in the modern scientific world, but an active biological and biochemical substance necessary for human, animal and plant life.
According to his hypothesis and confirming itStudies, the absorption of air nitrogen occurs with the help of blood erythrocytes - it adsorbs into the lungs during respiration, and in the erythrocytes biochemical processes of amino acid synthesis, their deposition and transportation throughout the body occur.
This assumption was made back in 1913THEM. Sechenov, who discovered the existence of a difference in the content of nitrogen in the arterial and venous blood. So, in arterial blood for 100 volumes contains 1.61% of nitrogen, and in venous blood for 100 volumes - 1.34% of nitrogen. This gives grounds to assume that 18 grams of nitrogen or 112 grams of protein enter the bloodstream within a day.
Another source of protein in the human system is microorganisms and fungal compounds in the human respiratory system, which also synthesize the protein.
If a person intensively enters the body proteinsFrom the outside, the function of protein synthesis by the body remains unclaimed. As the body clears and the person develops, his consciousness (information), which leads to a decrease in the consumption of animal food, this function is activated and activated.
Professor MI Volsky developed this global problem for the evolution of mankind almost alone, at his own expense and in the face of serious opposition from many Soviet scientists.
Similar innovative ideas were expressed by the SovietPhysicist I.L. Gerlovin in the theory of the energy of the physical vacuum. The idea is even more daring than the assumption of the participation of nitrogen in the synthesis of amino acids and protein.
According to this theory, in the structure of manThe mechanism of transformation and use of energy of a physical vacuum is incorporated for the vital activity, and means, and possibility to do without food and even air:
"There is an experimental reason to believe thatThe energy of the physical vacuum is widely used by living nature, in particular, by man. In this regard, it is appropriate to note that food is the main building material, and not the main source of human energy. A person uses food as a reserve source of energy in extreme cases, when the energy consumption is above average. " (IL Gerlovin, "Fundamentals of a unified theory of all interactions in matter", Leningrad: Energoatomizdat, 1990, p. 308).
This theory explains the complex effectPranayama to the human system: the breathing practices of yoga are just awakening this mechanism. Difficulty breathing and restricting the flow of oxygen with the help of special techniques, we make it difficult to obtain energy through biochemical processes and thereby activate the mechanisms of direct interaction with the life force (prana).
The cult of food as the foundation of the economy
In modern society there is no consumptionKnowledge about man and the world as a single spiritual space. While there is a lot of information about this, it is present only at the level of the mind, ideas and concepts, and real knowledge - the very connection with nature - no, it is lost.
Food has become a source of pleasure above all, andNot what the wise had: "We eat to live, and not live to eat." This formula for modern man has lost its relevance. The cult of food is reflected in everything, it is enough to look at the content of television programs with all sorts of kitchens and cooks.
Gluttony, dependence on food and fromThe pleasure it brings is a very difficult threshold for a person who has embarked on the path of development, and naturally, most people who are immersed in this defect will protect him passionately.
Again, on all human vices inModern society is doing serious business. The economy of whole countries is built on the addiction of people to eating slaughter food. It is not easy to break these chains and get free, but it is possible.
While most people in the world areMeat eaters, alternative food systems are becoming more popular - vegetarianism, veganism, raw food and all kinds of diets, and debates about how useful or harmful they are.
How to choose the optimal type of food for yourself?
You need to feed yourself in accordance with your level of development. You can derive the term "karmic food".
If a person is predisposed to aggression, andAll kinds of fears are filled by his subconsciousness, lower instincts prevail in him, and all this is realized in the corresponding activity and social role, he will be inclined to appropriate food that will fully nourish and maintain his level of development. This will be his karmic food. Vegetarianism is not suitable for him and will be harmful.
If, for example, following a fashion for vegetarianism, heForce yourself to give up slaughter food, and yet it will not develop mentally or mentally, it will be a suppression of natural need, and it will not last for long. The breakdown necessarily follows, and he will return to his usual diet, and in his body, there may be violations due to a lack of information that is inherent in him.
Following vegetarianism only as an idea, withoutDevelopment in other spheres - mental, mental and spiritual, does not correspond to the principle of natural development, and will be more harmful than useful. This applies to any other of the many concepts of correct, healthy nutrition, if the transition to it occurs through violence against oneself and suppression of natural needs, when neither physical, nor mental, nor psychoenergetic structures are ready for it.
Changes in diet should not occur inAccording to the idea or fashion for vegetarianism or a healthy lifestyle, but as a result of concrete steps on the path of development - first of all, purification, both physical and mental, of the metaphysical.
If you feel the need to change food - do not force yourself to refuse meat or other products that you consider harmful, but which you really want. Start with the purification.
In classical yoga for the purification of the physical bodyShatkarms are used. Getting rid of contaminants, slags cause changes in the body, and the nutritional needs change naturally - a desire to maintain this purity, gained by one's own efforts, and no longer wants to pollute yourself with food containing harmful information.
Pratika asanas and pranayams help to maintain this state, and also provides additional energy, harmonizes psychophysical and energy structures.
Practice of the shauchi - the purity of the mental - increases the sensitivity of perception and allows you to free yourself from aggression, envy, greed and other negative mental programs.
In some schools of yoga the transition to vegetarianismIs a necessary condition of practice, rather strict requirements are put, especially for teachers of yoga. In my understanding, the transition to vegetarianism must occur naturally, in the process of changes that the yoga practice itself brings.
Yoga as a system of self-development helps to calmMind, get rid of addictions, including food, to develop mindfulness of the body, and most importantly - to restore the lost connection with nature, integrity and unity with the world. Then the rejection of slaughter food will not happen under the influence of the idea of the benefits of vegetarianism, but as a natural need of a new level of development, to which a person passes.
