Have you noticed how certain foods look just like certain parts of the human body? Maybe that should give us a clue as to what to eat for optimum health. Consider the following amazing similarities between foods and our bodies:
A sliced carrot looks like the human eye—the pupil, iris, and radiating lines are remarkably similar! And yes, science now shows that carrots can greatly enhance blood flow to the eyes, thereby keeping them healthier.
Slice open a tomato and what do you see? Four chambers that resemble our hearts! Tomatoes are loaded with lycopene which is good for the heart and blood.
Even little children have remarked that walnuts look just like little brains—they have a right and left hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums! Even the wrinkles and folds on the nut look like the neo-cortex! Science indeed confirms that walnuts can help develop more than 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
They are named so for the fact that they actually resemble kidneys. Studies show that they actually help maintain kidney function!
Celery and Rhubarb
Take a close look—they look like bones! These foods do target bone strength, and have been shown to replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
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 a profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
Studies show that they can assist the health and function of the ovaries. The Bible is full of examples of the use of olives and olive oil. Yahweh sure knew what He was doing!
Avocadoes, Eggplant, and Pears
These target the health and function of the female reproductive system. Studies indicate that when a woman eats one avocado week, it may balance hormones, might help shed unwanted birth weight, and may prevent some types of cancer. Another interesting tidbit of information is that it takes nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit, just as it takes nine months for a human infant to grow in its mother’s womb!
They can support male reproductive health.
These resemble the pancreas. Research indicates that they can help balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits
May support breast health. Indeed they resemble the mammary glands! These fruits are also very high in vitamin C, which is known to boost immune health. Consuming extra vitamin C during a cold can actually shorten the duration and severity of symptoms.
Research shows that onions may help clear waste materials for the body’s cells—and yes, onions look like the body’s cells! They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.
A working companion of the onion, is also known to eliminate free radicals for the body. Consuming garlic has been shown to reduce harmful cholesterol and can even prevent sore throats and colds at the first sign of symptoms.
It is truly amazing how our health can improve once we begin eating the foods that Yahweh created to nourish our bodies.
