It seems that every food item we put into our bodies today contain toxins. It can be frustrating sometimes to source the purest, finest quality of food. Whether the food is heavily processed, genetically modified, contains pesticides, has been raised in a poor environment or is stored within toxic metal or plastic containers, it seems we are ultimately doomed!
Luckily there are strategies to minimize your exposure to food toxins, and even ways to reduce your food requirements altogether! Clients at IWIL learn the tricks of the trade and it’s the reason food is not heavily emphasized as top of the list for healing and restoring energy flow. There are simply better ways.
For those who focus highly on food and diet to restore energy flow, it is important to beware and avoid the following food items:
- High-fructose corn syrup
- Hydrogenated vegetable/seed oils:
- Soybean oil
- Canola oil
- Cottonseed oil
- Safflowerseed oil
- Rapeseed oil
- Sunflowerseed oil
- Peanut oil
- Vegetable shortening
- Mono and diglycerides
- Trans fats
- GMO grains, fruits and vegetables
- Plastics or cans containing BPA
As far as food sourcing goes, we recommend following a seasonal eating template. For produce, eat only what grows in your own garden. For meats, find a local farm that raises animals in their natural habitat feeding on a diet rich in nutrients, or consider hunting and fishing.
