What is the TRUE "Natural" Diet?
Everyone has their own idea about what is actually the natural way to eat - I will take "natural" down the path of evolution to find my truth.

High protein, low carb; low fat, high fiber; raw foods; veganism; vegetarianism; they all proclaim to be the natural diet of our ancestors. I have read so much research, others and my own, touting the benefits of each one. They each have this or that professional who backs the opinion and this and that scientific organization to quote, however I have yet to see one iota of proof or real scientific fact that has not been skewed toward whatever opinion the author wants to promote.
I have to admit that I have become such a cynic – I used to trust so openly the decisions of my doctors, dentists, therapists, clergymen, government … the list goes on. A little research churns up the muck and before a full month was up I was shocked by what this entire society has been hand-fed to believe by people with power and responsibility.
My point is… how are we supposed to know what is right for us when we have such conflicting information thrust at us from all directions, many from seemingly trustworthy sources? In my quest for natural living, I am constantly shocked by the misrepresentation and assumptions that I have read even in professional scientific documents. It seems that the driving force in their research is to find reasons why the conclusions they have already drawn are true. Shouldn’t research be the unbiased gathering of information, which is then processed and analyzed for a pure result?
My intention is to accurately represent true findings using research done without business bias. Most of my references come from anthropologic and primitive studies, along with evolutionary texts and DNA comparisons. I have also researched lab testing results, contemporary diet fad books, herbal healing remedies, and I also must give credit to you, my fellow CureZone blog writers because I am a die-hard addict of this website and find much of my inspiration from you.
I found truth in this quote written by Loren Lockman and represented in a blog called “In the Raw” by Lapis:
“Consuming something toxic in order to force the body’s actions assumes that we know the needs of our body better than it does. This is a poor assumption. Our bodies have infinitely more wisdom about their needs than we do, and are always doing the best they can, given the circumstances and conditions we provide.”
I have made it my purpose for the last year to unearth my own truths based on what I observe, what I learn, and what I believe. Representation of that process will be shown here, so that others may also discover their own truths.
