Immigration Challenges With Food Choices
When it comes to the correct choice of foods, it is where immigration can pose serious difficulties. If you relocate across zones of origin there should be no problem, if the cultural meals are somewhat similar. But, if you are from a foreign zone, this could prove quite difficult, especially when it comes to the matter of rising to greatness as an individual or race.” The wrong choice the chemical elements of your nourishment naturally get placed in a manner incompatible with stellar lines of forces in the body. These lines that are fixed from your time of birth, according the activity to which you are affectionately inclined.”
Say you migrated from a warm climate to a cold one. Soon you will find that with the change of climate comes also a change in body’s need of nourishment. Come wintertime, you may find that intuitively you begin choosing less of the tropical produce with their sweet-flavoured strength as proffered by Nature to beat debilitating heat. More appealing become the strong fats and preserves made from the fall crops as your body becomes acclimatized; essentially, there begins that intimate connection with your new homeland.
In following the law of your being, however, the molecules of indigenous foods, which formed the dense atoms of your physical body, remain vital for its sustenance, if it is to continue to strengthen and maintain itself in robust health. If your body is to remain healthy in a foreign zone, if it is to retain its full vigour to fulfil life’s work and purpose, the key essential nutrients must also come from the zone in which it originated.
To prove creation’s law of homogeneity absolute with respect to humans and their surroundings, take people with very fair skin. With exposure to the sun frequently, they tend to suffer easily from melanoma or skin cancer, because they do not have high enough active levels of melanocytes to produce brown or black pigments to protect them against high levels of exposure to the sun, especially in the torrid zones. On the other hand, people with darker skin, who migrate to the cold, northern regions, with little sunshine, tend to suffer vitamin D deficiency, the precursor the production of high density lipoprotein (HDL) – the “good” cholesterol.
Hypocholesterolemia (low cholesterol) is found to be associated with medical illness, particularly depression, suicide, and affective disorders, which are highest among blacks in N. America. Studies show that African Americans – far removed from their indigenous diet – suffer more from bipolar disorders than European Americans, by a ratio of 4:1 And where there is found hypocholesterolemia, the prognosis is usually high triglyceride levels (hypertriglyceridemia), which is involved in insulin resistance – highest among African Americans.

The Devastating Effects Of Alien Diets
It is mainly in the crossing of our customary dishes with the introduction of alien foods that is responsible for the sensitivity of the endocrine glands, which plays a major role in the proliferation of good bacteria (e.g., 3Ts fibroblast). The karmic reactions show themselves in disease processes and decline of the many races.
As Dr. Thomas Caceci in the greatness of simplicity explains:
“The importance of fibroblast,” he wrote, “cannot be overestimated. They are involved in normal growth, healing, wound repair, and the day-to-day physiological activities of every tissue and organ in the body. The fibroblast does everything.
“They can de-differentiate back to earlier stages in their development and then redifferentiate into some other cell type. For example, they can regress back, shift gear, and differentiate into osteoblasts to aid in the production of bone, or chondrocytes, or even if need be into adipose cells. It’s the fibroblasts of the intermuscular CT that form the scar tissue when muscles are destroyed, weaving new collagen fibres to fill the gaps left behind by dead myocytes. Differentiated as chondroblasts, they make not only the collagen and/or elastic fibres appropriate for the cartilage type, they make the matrix as well …. Interference with their activities causes a vast array of clinical problems. Scurvy, the disease brought on by lack of vitamin C in humans, is an example. The deficiency affects a specific pathway of collagen synthesis, with consequences ranging from skin sores, anemia, edema, lucerated gum, loosened teeth, and hemorrhage of mucous membrane, restoration of the vitamin allows fibroblasts to work normally and cures the problem.”
It goes without saying that the wrong choice of foods can, among other factors, induce gene mutation, i.e., permanent changes to DNA or RNA. The process is not much different than what occurs with communicable (infectious) diseases.
When parasites evolve much faster than their hosts, the body picks up the invading antigen, using an inefficient immune system. Subsequently, small amounts of dead invaded material will be presented to the cells in the lymph nodes. These cells unlock a certain part of their DNA related to antibody unit production and proceed to rapidly divide, all the while mutating this section of DNA. The process takes about three weeks, and speeds up that which would otherwise require centuries of evolution. It is much the same with diet, though not in a matter of weeks.
Failure of the body to produce T-cells and antibodies with its own signature, or “self”, is what gives rise to autoimmune response, when the body attacks itself and is often very dangerous to the person. Cancer, lymphodemia, and arthritis are a few examples of autoimmune diseases are such responses. With careful dietary planning you can form a sustenance bridge, at least for a short time, though never permanently. In every language there is a the saying: “There is no place like home.”
This is where food imports from your region of birth is indispensable to wellness as it is for trade and commerce. That is if you cannot return to your native lands ever so often, but not without risk of shortening your lifespan.
Such was the cruel fate of African slaves to the Americas and the Caribbean. The average life span of an African slave was said to 27 years — dying as fast as they arrived, until their indigenous foods began arriving with them. Today, those of African descent in the diaspora, even with the finest foods available and the greatest medicine science have to offer, studies show that they suffer more ill-health – diabetes, arthritis etc. – than their not so materially blessed counterparts back in their native land.
