12 Sep #191 – Raw Paleo with Melissa Henig
-This week Host Matty is joined by Melissa Henig from Raw paleo. You all may not know Melissa, but like most nutritional coaches, has a back story which has now led her to the raw paleo methodology. She utilises them to create cookbooks and coach others through using this protocol to rebalance hormones and revitalise their bodies.
Melissa was introduced to raw food by eating a raw vegan diet years ago. Which evolved into a raw omnivorous diet for about 9 years now. This means she eats all types of foods in their raw, unheated, un-adulterated state. Yes, if you can believe it, this includes raw meat.
She says that when food, especially protein, is cooked several toxins can be formed. When they are formed they obstruct the body. These toxins include heterocyclic amines, advanced glycation end products. Also acrylamides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, hydroxymethylfurfural, and lipid peroxidation.
These toxins when formed impose a burden on the body, impeding digestion and therefore health. It is important to know that raw foods have a high bio-availability. Meaning that the nutrients are more easily used to fulfil the body’s many functions. Such as cellular regeneration and healing. Enjoy this podcast section of Raw Paleo with Melissa Henig!
