You've probably heard the expression, "if you haven't got your Health, you haven't got anything", or some variation of this. And us Raw Foodies tend to put our Health on a Pedestal.
But in reality "Health" is only one part of what makes us whole and capable of achieving our highest potential.
The other components are Relationships, Fitness, Prosperity, Purpose, Rejuvenation, and Time.
How these affect us are often perceived incorrectly as being a Health problem. For instance, if you have a Prosperity problem, it may cause your emotions to get out of balance, which may cause you to have a lot of problems with your breathing or digestive ability or it may even cause headaches or other painful sensations.
A Relationship problem may be causing similar problems. It could also be causing you to invite some traumatic experience into your Life to bring more attention to your self from whomever your relationship is not strong.
Each of the components of Life needs to be strong for all the others to support us to function at our highest level. We simply don't perform well as human beings when they are out of balance or not at their optimal level.
Many people turn to the Raw Food Lifestyle to improve their health. Some achieve high levels of health, and solve their problems this way. But most do not. You simply can't "eat your way" out of your problem, if it isn't a health problem to begin with. I'm not disrespecting the Raw Food Lifestyle at all here. I am a long time Raw Foodie myself, and fully appreciate the Alkalizing nature and many other benefits that go with it.
But, No, Health is Not the Most Important Thing. It's only one part of the whole picture of having a fulfilling, balanced life.
