No-Vitamin Mineral Processed Foods
Dr. Wysong

There is no question but that the most natural, micronutrient replete, and healthy diet for any creature is that which they would find unaltered in nature. For humans it would be raw prey along with raw fruits, nuts, and some veggies, honey, and dairy. For pet carnivores that would be raw prey. If you and your pet can return to the wild and accomplish this, good for you. For the rest of us, we have problems to solve.

First off, we must face the reality that billions of people and animals cannot eat raw wild foods when there is not enough raw wild nature to go around.

What we are left with is standing agriculture. Farming has successfully delivered quantities of food to humanity that are largely responsible for modern civilization. (Hunting and foraging leaves little time for building skyscrapers, rocket ships, and computers.) However, in order to make the starch-containing agricultural products (grains, legumes, pulses, tubers) digestible and nontoxic, they must be cooked. In order for any product to be safely held in packages for months prior to being consumed, producers must subject it to a kill step to eliminate pathogens. This is most commonly high heat.

The problem with this cooking kill step is that significant quantities of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other nutrients are altered or destroyed. Toxins are also inevitably produced.

So there you have the dilemma. First, our true natural diet is by and large impossible. Then, what we have left is farm raised produce, meats, and processed foods. Since most people will not consume or feed raw meats or organs, or even produce on a regular basis, nutrient-diminished processed foods become a mainstay.

In order to make processed foods as healthy as possible, the challenge is to minimize the negative effects of processing, fortify the foods with the nutrients that are diminished, and supplement ingredients that protect against the toxins produced. Such foods are still not what would ideally be best, but they are the best compromise. At least that is the intelligent and responsible way to go about it. To read more, please click here.

Beliefs are wonderful as long as they are tied to the truth. But when we uncouple our beliefs from the regularities of the world, the resulting fantasy will sooner or later levy a heavy price.

Taco the Tortoise Comes When Called

Mission Statement

Dear Friend:

The Wysong Healthletter is now well into its third decade of continuous publication. It is offered free to help you make a better you and a better world.

I long ago came to realize that the most worthy role of any doctor is to teach people how not to need them. This led me away from practice where treating symptoms is the primary tool and a misinformed public has come to expect magic bullet cures. But no disease is ever caused by the lack of a drug, and no treatment—save that for trauma or defect—ever improves an organism. Medical intervention is, in fact, now the number one cause of death and suffering in our modern world.

Illness, in large part, comes from wrong thinking. Health requires an open-minded, fact-based philosophy of life and an ambition to make yourself the best you can be. Thoughtlessly following convention and laziness are irreconcilable with health.

Wellness requires a deep respect for the great unknowns of life and the power of natural healing forces. Pretending that we can command nature and that the body is a mere machine that can be manipulated with impunity by "experts" is an illusion of both professionals and the public.

So it is my hope that this newsletter will help you to take control of your own health destiny, trust the healing powers within and in nature, and understand that ultimately wellbeing is about what you do to yourself, not what someone else can do to you.

Dr. Wysong
