Vital Energy

Talking about energies, especially vital energy -- the essential energy for the balance of our mind and body -- is always a delicate subject. For scientists, rational and materialistic people, these energies are invisible, immeasurable and indefinite, so they don't exist.

Electric, caloric and radioactive energies are recognized because we can measure them, or even see them. We can catch or create them, concentrate them, control them and, finally, use them for our own needs. They are concrete. With electrical energies, we have power stations that, from sources such as water, wind, sunrays, and radioactivity, can concentrate the energy, transform it into another energy that we need, and then redistribute it through cables to electrical appliances.

In fact, our bodies work on the same concept. The body itself is an energetic power station with two main units that we can compare to batteries -- the nervous system and the glandular system. Both can catch energies from the environment (water, air, sun, earth, etc.), concentrate them, transform them into energies that the body can use (nerve impulse and hormones) and then redistribute them through nerves, meridians of acupuncture and blood to the organs.

The only energy that the body can use is vital energy, and that we can only find in nature. The body can catch this energy through the skin, eyes, intestines, lungs and also through human energetic fields such as charkas and auras.

We find this vital energy everywhere in nature: in outside air, especially in the mountains and forests or by the sea; in natural water from springs, rivers, oceans, and morning dew; in the earth, trees, grass, and flowers; in natural sunlight; in raw food; and in contact with healthy people and animals.

The other energies that come from machines -- electro-magnetic fields generated from all electrical appliances -- or from manufactured or processed products -- including cooked and refined food, air conditioning, artificial light, artificial vitamins and flavors -- are all "dead energies." Dead in the sense that they don't bring life, but on the contrary take and even destroy our own body's vital energy.

For example, when you eat something made with white, refined, bleached, bromated or enriched wheat (such as non-organic bread), you eat something devoid of living vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Simply put, they are empty of life. To digest this "dead bread," your body needs to take on its own reserves of vitamins, enzymes, electrolytes and minerals. The only thing you have received from this piece of bread is extra calories for your hips! But your body is still craving nutrients because, instead of receiving them, it was using its own nutrient reserves to digest the bread in the stomach. And after a meal comprised of food devoid of vital energy, the only thing you want to do is rest!

On the other hand, in a raw, uncooked sprouted whole grain of wheat, you find living enzymes, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals to aid in its own digestion and to nourish your body. You don't waste you body's energy reserves by digesting empty calories because at the same time you digest the raw grain of wheat, your body receives fresh new vital energy from this food source. Your cells are nourished properly so you don't want more food. The vicious circle of overeating is broken.

Here is another example. When you spend eight hours in an office building with machines everywhere around you -- computers, telephones, printers, beverage machines -- with electrical cables in the ceiling and on the floor, and surrounded by artificial lighting and air conditioning, and then you follow that with your evening drive home in traffic and gas pollution, how do you feel after a day like this one? Are you ready to go out and party? Certainly not. Your energies were drained.

But if you can experience working in the middle of a garden full of trees, barefoot on generous grass, doing the same job that you usually do at your office, you will see the difference in how you feel at the end of the day. You will still have enough energy to go to the gym, invite your spouse for a nice dinner downtown and even more... but after that it is not our business anymore. While you were spending energy for your work, at the same time your body was gaining vital energy from trees, earth, outside air and sunlight. You gave your body the possibility to regenerate itself.

Only unprocessed elements from nature provide vital energy and only vital energy is the energy of Life. Without it, Life couldn't exist.

Our health depends mainly on the balance and the proper functioning of our glands and nervous system. Only vital energy, the immaterial "food" of our body, is capable of regenerating them. That's why it is important to reintroduce and increase, in quantity and quality, vital energy sources in our daily lives, and to minimize dead energy sources from our environment.
