Raw Food Promotes Healing

A raw food cleanse allows you to gain back energy, vibrancy, and happiness. Raw food can release you from addictive foods, reduce the burden on your internal environment, and give you better focus. You may be wondering, just how does raw food do all that? It comes down to two simple things: oxygen and water. Two of life's most essential components are stored in raw food. By eating a raw food diet, you are releasing both life-giving oxygen and water into your system, creating an optimal environment for healing.


Raw Food is High in Oxygen

Oxygen heightens circulation, which permits vital nutrients to get into your cells. The more oxygen that is present in your body, the less likely it is that your cells will be subject to illness and disease. Since raw food is living food, it still contains an abundant amount of oxygen. Therefore, when consuming only living plants, your body can naturally obtain more oxygen, which helps fight off any illness and disease that you may otherwise be prone to.


Water is Abundant in Raw Food

In addition to this, every single function in your body is controlled by water. If you do not consume enough water, your body will not be able to transport necessary elements, hormones, chemical messengers, and oxygen, to their designated destination. Water also helps eliminate toxins and get waste out of your cells. By consuming a raw food diet, enough water is never a question! Eating this way truly assists our natural healing process.

The recipe below is a refreshing meal that will provide your body with vital nutrients, oxygen, and water. The “zoodles” or spiralized zucchini are much lighter than traditional noodles, and the mango avocado dressing is heavenly-tasting, creamy goodness.
