Perfect Nutrition – Perfect Medicine – Liquefied Seeds 

The article below by Dr. Mark Sircus discusses the amazing nutritional value of seeds.



The article points out:


The Budwig Center says, “Seeds may be tiny, but they’re packed with nutrients like protein, fiber, iron, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids". They truly provide ‘energy bursting with life’. The fact is the seed is the source of all life. Dr. Johanna Budwig helped cancer patients that were very weak and in advanced stages of cancer by feeding them a mixture of freshly-ground flaxseeds and raw, pure honey, every two hours. She understood the power of seed nutrition.....


Seeds are incredibly powerful antioxidants. Seeds contain many times more nutrition than the plant they will become, in some cases as much as 30 times more nutrition. As we all know, all life starts within the seed and it seems that we can save lives with seed nutrition...Seeds are intense sources of concentrated nutrition and compete with the best superfoods....


Seeds such as sunflower, sesame, chia, hemp, flax, and pumpkin seeds are all not only mineral rich but also protein rich. Seeds are true superfoods and are a complete source of easily-digested plant protein and are high in fiber and minerals like magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium. Seeds vary from type; some are nuttier in flavor whereas others are more sweet and neutral tasting. Pumpkin seeds have an earthy flavor, sesame seeds are very nutty tasting, sunflowers are slightly sweet and nutty, and flax and chia seeds taste mildly nutty. Seeds helps carbohydrate metabolism in the body, hormone production, even improves immune health as well as skin, hair, and nails.

Seeds are some of the most overlooked nutrient sources out there in the plant-based kingdom, though many are rising in their popularity. With such high nutritional density, seeds are truly a gift from nature improving insulin regulation and will help those with blood sugar issues and diabetes. Seeds are high in fat, the type of fat our body loves and needs. They are an especially good source of omega 3 fatty acids and a rich source of mono-unsaturated fats that protect your heart, prevent inflammation, and help manage your weight.

Chia seeds are a source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of “short-chain” omega-3 fatty acid. Hemp seeds are a great protein source, as more than 25% of their total calories are from high-quality protein. That is considerably more than similar foods like chia seeds and flaxseeds, which provide about 16–18%.....

As they say, “If the food's not good, the medicine is worthless and if the food is good, the medicine is worthless”. High-quality nutrition needs to be a central part of every medical protocol. Our cells need the right conditions for health and recovery from disease. There is no substitute for each nutrient. There is no pharmaceutical medicine which can make up for a nutritional deficiency. Today, we need more nutrients not less because toxicities of multiple types are a plague affecting the entire biosphere. We consume extra nutrients in the process of detoxification. However, over the last fifty years, the nutritional values of foods have been dropping so we get less. Superfoods help us make up the slack addressing the deep nutritional deficiencies that most people, especially those who are fighting chronic diseases commonly face.
