As the word expresses it already "nutrition nurtures", quality foods bring about our well-being. For me they are the foundation on which our well-being and our ability to perform and adapt to environmental conditions is built.
Foods make us what we are from an evolutionary standpoint and from an individual perspective. If we go back in history and evolution respectively it was men's skill to be able to cook and thus create less perishable meals that endowed him mostly with the independence of the place, climate and vegetation.
IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WE FORGOT IN MANY WAYS WHY WE EAT
In sports foods turned first of all into a calorie provider. No concern and attention is given to the fact that the ingredients of our foods, their composition as a whole and their texture make us to what we are physically and mentally. It is our food that keeps our body's physiology in balance and guarantees our integrity as a fabric made of millions of molecules.
It is not the single vitamin, it is not the single electrolyte or tracer element, it is not the carbs and not the proteins and not the fat as a biochemical entity that makes our bodies and minds moving, developing and living.
Even though there is a trend pronounced that eating healthy is essential, we still tend to deconstruct our foods instead of accepting them as a whole and by that recognizing that their wholeness makes up for their efficacy. We eat meat because of its iron content, we eat potatoes because of the vitamin C and eat the banana because of their potassium content etc. neglecting that their form, texture and their complex composition makes them quality foods.
Foods as we understand them finally alter into nutrition by being processed from organic compounds. Cooked meals either derive from an organism as a whole or from an organism's fruits.
We eat plants and meat, both have been living organisms. We eat eggs, cheese, potatoes, flour, drink milk, juice etc., all are fruits of life, and all are foods that have one thing in common, they are composites, be they processed or not.
Nobody will cast a doubt on the fact that meals are delicate composites, never a mono-substance, the composition makes the taste and the effect. Single substances such as vitamins and the whole range of supplements (amino acids, L-carnitine, niacin, glutamate, creatine, zinc, selene etc.) taste terrible therefore they come in capsules or tablets.
If you get them as a powder you mix it with something tasty that makes these mono-substances - all offsprings of the chemical laboratory - eatable. If you look into the literature, mono-substances are from an aspect of healthiness all questionable.
As I mentioned before processing foods which in the end means nothing more than cooking is a precious skill man has acquired over centuries. It needs experience to create tasty and healthy meals that nurture our body and mind instead of harming it.
We all know the convenient foods in the marketplace that made and make us sick. Our Western culture suffers tremendously from bad nutrition encouraged by the wrong scientific assumptions.
Yes, foods can make you sick and it can be your remedy.
While cooking is an art, it is intuition and experience, a tradition carried on from one generation to the other, convenient food is food designed in the lab. Unfortunately, these lab meals alienated many of us of the value of the different ingredients and of quality cooking. I think we have to rediscover this forlorn knowledge to recover from most of our modern diseases.
But that's not trivial, you can so easily turn good food into bad nutrition by destroying its texture and its ingredients due to inadequate treatment and by adding ingredients such as stabilizers, conservatives, aromas etc. Nutrition then stops to nurture you. It starts harming you.
Biestmilch is a composite, it is complex and organic. It is food. It is modulating body conditions. Biestmilch is not replacing x amount of something in your body, it initiates change and restores balance.
It is not a supplement designed in a lab.
It truly nurtures, it gives to the offspring all it needs. It's the first food we get in touch with. It turns all the organ system into functioning mode, the metabolism, the immune system, nerves, locomotion, blood vessels etc. BUT
Was it not only created for babies? I don't know how many times I heard this question. My reply is clearly no, evolution is not intentional and the evidence I was able to collect through all these years for me confirms this assumption. Biestmilch is able to nurture you your whole life through regardless of age. It is preventive, year by year it is helping you to build up a more solid base on which your performance can prosper. Also in adults Biestmilch influences all the organ systems from metabolism to cell regeneration, from immunity to stress susceptibility.
Of course, Biestmilch cannot move mountains. It is like with all foods, it is a build-up process throughout life. Compare it with endurance training. If you want to stay fit or increase your fitness you have to work for it on a regular basis lifelong. If you decide yourself for Biestmilch, you should stick with it, and consider it as integral part of your diet plan.
The science behind Biestmilch is as vague as it is behind all nutrition. There are trends and fashions that pretend to be based on solid science. In the field of food and nutrition marketing is stronger than science. You have to learn to rely on your very own experience, explore yourself.
Try to find out what it means to feel well, and see whether Biestmilch can help you. It's such a powerful nutrition independent of age.
Natural sciences look at the mono-substances our nutrition is composed of. Experiments are performed in the vial, in the animal and finally field studies look at humans to deliver the proof of concept. Then conclusions are made by the individual scientists. Until today research on nutrition is lacking a defined frame of reference and a clear hypothesis to start out from.
Science and nutrition has not got a solid relation yet, it resembles more an arbitrary meet and greet. Science seems not to know how to study nutrition and how to rid it from the experiences of thousands of years. Nutrition is a messy subject, and Western science does not like this.
Western science wants to exclude experience and the observer from the equation, impossible I think, especially when it comes to food.
THE MOTTO IS EXPLORE YOURSELF!
Status quo is currently that one substance is scrutinized by researchers and then conclusions are drawn that are mainly based on association and not on causation. We, the non-expert, the outsiders are left behind, our vision gets blurred by the power of the scientific word. History is rich with stories of wrong conclusions made. Until now science doesn't really know how to study nutrition in its complexity. The solution is not decomposition.
As long as we don't know which parameters or patterns of parameters we need to observe and measure that then allow us to outline a study design, select the collective of people, determine the statistical methods, and reduce the complexity of the composite accordingly, the results we are confronted with must be doubted.
Until now we are more or less left to our own devices and experiences. The motto still is "explore yourself"!
