he Hoxsey Diet seems to be under attack as of late by some victual marauders that seem to be dewy eyed with good intentions, but we all know the horrid destination where that pyrite paved road leads. When shopping for a means of curing my thyroid cancer, I chose the Hoxsey alternative cancer treatment for several reasons, but a major reason was the diet -- that it isn't vegetarian, or worse yet, vegan. You heard me right, the Hoxsey Diet isn't vegetarian much less vegan. I think the Gerson clinic, correct me if I'm wrong, charges $40,000 for a one month stay at their clinic in Mexico, where patients get to nibble on a limited palate of beautifully prepared limited fruits and vegetables. Why so limited?-- because veganism itself isn't sparse enough? Eh...if I remember right, the reason that Gerson limits some fruits and veggies is due to sugar content, and other supposed cancer related botanical reasons. But as always, science isn't stagnate, it's fluid, and because of that, recent data is coming out that shows even lemons and berries are as sweet as mangoes and pineapples! It's the acids in those fruits that mask their sugar content. But don't get me wrong, I'm happy there are people who actually are cured via the Gerson therapy, which I think ends up being that much more of a miracle. Let me explain.
The vegan diet is rather new as diets go, related to human history. The whole foods diet that accompanies the Hoxsey medicinal herbal tonic and supplements is not only healthy, but it is also an ancient concept, and it's relatively easy to maintain, sane and natural, and may I repeat?--not vegan. Despite the wealth of whole foods that we are allowed to eat, there are those who insist on bringing their new fangled vegan philosophies to the Hoxsey cure table despite the allowance of clean animal based foods, and their natural inclination to bash on these approved animal based foods is starting to leak our and contaminate an otherwise balanced approach to diet and health, which is causing all kinds of confusion and condemnation. I don't like contamination, confusion, and condemnation. And so that is what I'm going to focus on in this article, the "why's" of the Hoxsey diet, as I, a patient, see it. To be honest, even I espoused a raw vegan diet, but I have since learned the error in judgment I made. So, even though I'm going to critique this wicked practice (villifying perfectly good foods) with a decidedly satirical tone, I'm not heartless -- not entirely. My hope for this article is that it supports my fellow omnivores in their Hoxsey journey toward eating a healthier diet for themselves and their families. And I also hope that this article flips the lights on in the vegan's malnourished mind, thus shedding upon it the bright light of reality -- that they are needlessly participating in voluntary starvation. So, let's get to it--easy!- sane! - natural! - go team Hoxsey!
The Hoxsey Diet is Easy!
"Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes you crave it fortnightly, smartarse!"
Ah...organics. That is a whole other can of worms I won't be opening today, the subject is way too large to nosh on, but rather, I'll go by the maxim of "do the best you can." Ideally, if you can shop local farmer's markets, then lucky you. Just make sure they are in compliance for organic certification. Just by talking to your local farmer, you can get an idea if they are really selling organic produce. But here's an overlooked tip, if your local farmer at the market has food stickers on their produce, then I can pretty much guarantee that they didn't' grow them and they aren't organic. That dishonest resale tactic rarely happens here in America, but it can happen. However, there may be some farmers at the market that do not want to shell out a whole lotta lettuce for the USDA organic certification, but still grow organically, so it is up to you to decide to buy, or not to buy from them. If you cannot afford to go all organic, then by all means take advantage of the ominous sounding produce list known as: The Dirty Dozen. The list of the top pesticide contaminated fruits and veggies varies a little bit from year to year, but it basically stays the same. Just Google it, and take it from there. If you can buy certified organics from this list, then great, keep up the good work. If you still can't afford to buy organic fruits and veggies from this list, then try growing them yourself. If that is not going to happen, then, you know...do the best you can!
The Hoxsey Diet Is Sane
And He said, "Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that everything entering into the mouth goes into the stomach, and is cast out into the sewer? But the things going forth out of the mouth come forth out of the heart, and these defile the man. For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immorality, thefts, false testimonies, slanders. These are the things defiling the man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man." Matthew 15:16-20
"But food will not commend us to God; neither if we should eat do we come short, nor if we should not eat, do we have an advantage." 1 Corinthians 8:8
The Hoxsey Diet Is Natural
One thing is for sure, their famished minds and hair trigger emotions are easily fanned into destructive flames by the propaganda of greedy industrialists that would just as soon as abuse a cow as till under a rain forest to plant soya, if it would make them a faster and fatter return on their investment! The nutritional value of the vegan's utopian food products that these globalist tycoons invest in is not on their narcissistic minds; turning a profit is. When all of the evil abuses of resources are no longer done, and animals are treated humanely (according to their kind) whether they end up as pets in the home, livestock in the pasture, or food on the plate, then everyone will be happy. Well, except for the bankrolling investors that lost their shirts on vegan enterprises. But don't hold your breath, or invest in magic wands just yet. Even though Relativism and Absolutism are both childish and dangerous points of view, they are regularly put into public policy. You want real change?-- then invest your intellectual time in learning about the real sustainable food production sciences from men like Joel Salitan, and Geoff Lawton, et al, and then put them into practice. In reality, we live in a world where black and white are childishly muddled together in various tints and shades of grey, by powerful people with all kinds of infantile and selfish agendas that have the loot to make them happen. But thankfully, there is still some wisps of black and white to be found on the world's messed up tonal palette, and they should be used by those who are mature enough to draw lines where they need to be drawn, so that a clearer picture can be seen and enjoyed. Are you ready to draw those lines? I know I am! So, consider them drawn in regard to the Hoxsey diet, which is not vegetarian, nor is it vegan; it is omnivorous, and for good nutritional reason!
Food For Thought
- Why didn't Harry Hoxsey mention a whole foods diet plan in his book, "You Don't Have To Die" as being part of his cure?
- If eating meat/dairy is so wrong for human physiology, then how did our ancestors physically thrive in cold climates (and still do) where fruits and vegetables are scarce most of the year? (You might also want to ask, "Why T. Collin Campbell completely ignored the data he collected from the people of Tuoli county that ate a whopping 134 grams of animal protein per day and 45% of their diet as fat with no significant health issues like cancer, and heart disease?") Slam! -- crack! Uh, there goes the other hand.
- If we are supposed to only eat vegetables, then why do we have omnivorous features?
- Is the earth really a good "greenhouse" model considering it is not enclosed in glass (unless you count cloud cover) and is hot and cold on different sides of it at the same time at all times?
- What is the real cause of global warming? Could it be man made weather control (see JFK's 1961 address to the U.N. on YouTube for proof of a military weather control goal), industrial pollutants, carbon dioxide, water vapor i.e. cloud cover, or a combination of all of these?
- What is really behind the vegan agenda?-- utopian health and prosperity for all, or an Orwellian monitory enrichment for a few elitists?
