Replace Traditional Protein Sources with Spirulina and Chlorella

In general, cooked-food vegetarians don’t get enough protein in their diet, which is a major problem that can lead to fatigue and many other health problems. Often people will simply remove meat , fish, eggs and dairy from their diet and become a strict vegetarian or vegan. This is a big mistake because protein is essential to the body in every way since it is the building blocks of our cells. Raw foodists can get away with only eating fruits and vegetables, but not cooked foodists since cooking irrevocably changes plant protein structure in a detrimental way that renders it weakened, chemically changed and therefore much less useful to the body. A severe lack of protein in the body will lead to cachexia where the organs are robbed of protein in order to perform bodily functions similar to the way the bones are robbed of calcium for bodily needs, which leads to osteoporosis .

A Raw-food Diet provides the body with a sufficient, but not ideal amount of protein. The body cannot store protein and will easily rid itself of any excess protein when it is derived from raw foods, not cooked animal-food sources. Excessive animal protein , on the other hand, will lead to severe imbalances in the body, leading to ketosis , uremia and a host of other diseases.

Protein must be consumed with every meal in order for the food to properly digest and its nutrients to be efficiently extracted and absorbed by the body. Digestion does not require a large amount of protein. Rather, the key is that you consume high quality plant protein that has a broad array of amino acids that are in the correct ratio to one another. Spirulina and Chlorella fit the bill perfectly. Only 2 – 4 grams of Spirulina and Chlorella (1.2 – 2.4 grams of protein) are needed with each meal to fulfill the protein needs of proper digestion. To exceed that amount would only enhance algae’s digestive and other nutritional components. Both cooked and raw foods are digested better and more nutrients are extracted from them when a sufficient amount of protein is present. This is especially true of plant protein such as that found in algae.

Without protein, bodily functions such as hormones and nutrient absorption stumble and thrash about without direction. This is why I refer to protein as the Great Regulator.

Oncologists commonly advise their cancer patients to avoid meat and dairy products because they encourage cancer by elevating certain protein levels in the body, which indicate that the cancer is thriving. If meat and dairy should be avoided once you have cancer, then avoiding them would also be a good preventative health measure. In general, allopathic (medical) doctors preach prevention in a rather watered down, tepid way, if at all, which seems befitting of an industry that could not be more wrongheaded and misguided about health and the cure for disease.

Animal protein that has been denatured by cooking is a great detriment to the body. The antibiotics , hormones and steroids that are injected into livestock can adversely affect the growth of children and destroy the friendly bacteria that the human body needs for digestion. Animal protein must be broken down into basic amino acids to be reformed into protein chains that can then be used by the human body. This is a laborious and inefficient process that loots the body of energy and resources rather than nutrifies it. The biggest culprit is meat.
