Food for Consciousness
Food should not only be physical food but also supporting
the creative activity of the mind and have enough vital
energy for spiritual meditation. One should take only
sentient food which is fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains,
beans and herbs. Onions, leak and garlic are considered
harmful for higher mental and spiritual mind activity.
Some recent finding on garlic explains the reason:
Garlic - Toxic Shock!
Stop taking garlic. It kills tens of thousands of brain
cells and de-synchronises the left and right brains
The reason garlic is so toxic, the sulphone hydroxyl
ion penetrates the blood-brain barrier, just like DMSO,
and is a specific poison for higher-life forms and brain
cells. We discovered this, much to our horror, when
I (Bob Beck, DSc) was the world's largest manufacturer
of ethical EEG feedback equipment.
We'd have people come back from lunch that looked clinically
dead on an encephalograph, which we used to calibrate
their progress. "Well, what happened?" "Well,
I went to an Italian restaurant and there was some garlic
in my salad dressing!" So we had them sign things
that they wouldn't touch garlic before classes or we
were wasting their time, their money and my time.
I guess some of you who are pilots or have been in flight
tests...I was in flight test engineering in Doc Hallan's
group in the 1950's. The flight surgeon would come around
every month and remind all of us: "Don't you dare
touch any garlic 72 hours before you fly one of our
airplanes, because it'll double or triple your reaction
time. You're three times slower than you would be if
you'd not had a few drops of garlic."
Well, we didn't know why for 20 years later, until I
owned the Alpha-Metrics Corporation. We were building
biofeed-back equipment and found out that garlic usually
desynchronises your brain waves.
So I funded a study at Stanford and, sure enough, they
found that it's a poison. You can rub a clove of garlic
on your foot - and you can smell it shortly later on
your wrists. So it penetrates the body. This is why
DMSO smells a lot like garlic: that sulphone hydroxyl
ion penetrates all the barriers including the corpus
callosum in the brain.
Any of you who are organic gardeners know that if you
don't want to use DDT, garlic will kill anything in
the way of insects.
Now, most people have heard most of their lives garlic
is good for you, and we put those people in the same
class of ignorance as the mothers who at the turn of
the century would buy morphine sulphate in the drugstore
and give it to their babies to put them to sleep.
If you have any patients who have low-grade headaches
or attention deficit disorder, they can't quite focus
on the computer in the after-noon, just do an experiment
- you owe it to yourselves. Take these people off garlic
and see how much better they get, very very shortly.
And then let them eat a little garlic after about three
weeks. They'll say "My God, I had no idea that
this was the cause of our problems." And this includes
the de-skunked garlics, Kyolic, some of the other products.
Very unpopular, but I've got to tell you the truth.
