I believe this article and concept will interest permaculturists, even though it's not directly on topic.
You are what you eat, so eat well.
A stupendous insight of civilizations past has now been confirmed by today's
investigative, nutritional sciences. They have shown that what was once
called 'The Doctrine of Signatures' was astoundingly correct.
They now contends that many whole foods have a pattern that resembles a Body
organ or physiological function and that this pattern acts as a Signal or
sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater.
Here is just a short list of examples of Whole Food Signatures.
ï¿? A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating
lines look just Like the human eye...and YES science now shows that carrots
greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
ï¿? A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four
Chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood
ï¿? Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks
like a blood cell and all of the Research today shows that grapes are also
profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
ï¿? A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper
Cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut
just like the neo-cortex.We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen
neuro-transmitters For brain function.
ï¿? Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they
look exactly like the Human kidneys.
ï¿? Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods
specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are
23% sodium. If you don't have enough Sodium in your diet the body pulls it
from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs
of the body.
ï¿? Eggplant, Avocados and Pears target the health and function of The womb
and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's
research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances
hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how
profound is this? . it takes exactly 9 months to Grow an avocado from
blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 phytolytic chemical
Constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has
only studied and named about 141 of them).
ï¿? Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the
motility of male sperm And increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome
ï¿? Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic
index of diabetics.
ï¿? Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
ï¿? Grapefruits, Oranges, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary
glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the
movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
ï¿? Onions look like body cells.Todays research shows that onions help clear
waste materials From all of the body cells They even produce tears which
wash the epithelial layers of the eyes
ï¿? Peanuts have a profound effect on the testicles and sexual libido. Peanuts
were banned As a food for males by the church often during the middle ages.
Most people don't realize that arginine, the main component of Viagra, comes
Isn't that amazing?! Merry
Hi Merry - this great. The graphical version of this is circulating as an email as well. The Doctrine of Signatures is a concept in medical herbalism as well (mullein being not dissimilar to lungs, the yellow juice of celandine being related to the bile of gallbladder, etc.). It is an old old doctrine which is quite interesting, especially from a folklore perspective.
