Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
This simple rhyme used to be recited by children in less uncertain times. Today it could easily be used as a jingle for marketing potato chips. However this rhyme holds truth, especially when it comes to our food.
When Nature out of its matrix of infinite intelligence provides the basic foods (from golden grains of wheat to sun ripened apples) that we as a species have enjoyed and survived upon for centuries, it creates "Bio-Integrity".
Bio-Integrity means that the complete vitality of a food resides in its original wholeness. The more whole, the more vital energy and nutrition exist in it.
When a food is organically grown, unrefined, and free of genetically modified organisms ( GMO's ) it holds the maximum nutrition which creates balance and harmony. Once broken up and refined it loses its Bio-Integrity and this leads to countless problems in human health (i.e. degenerative diseases).
Refined white sugar and refined sea salt are two clear examples of this "Humpty Dumpty" syndrome. They are not beneficial to health because they are super refined and stripped of nutrients and minerals essential to life.
Another example that comes to mind is the difference between flour that is stone-ground and flour produced on high-speed roller mills. Stone grinding is the traditional and natural way of crushing grains into health-giving vital flour. Roller milling on the other hand is a complex industrial process that separates the wheat germ, the bran and the white flour.
The classic "Humpty Dumpty" syndrome is the re-mixing of white flour with some bran and germ trying to put the whole wheat back together again. They call it whole wheat, but only stone-grinding produces real whole wheat flour that is Bio-Integral, that supports life and health and can produce real bread.
If you are eating lots of refined foods
(refined white sugar, refined white flour, refined salt) in your diet, you may want to
gradually replace it with some healthier alternatives and benefit from
Nature's real foods:
Eat well and be healthy!
