The 12 Temperaments Swings With 12 pH Food Groups
The law of the trinity, operating in the mental plane, is no different when it comes to nutrition of the different faculties. It is in the law of static force (affection) we digest most what we enjoy most, whether it heals or harms the body. This attracting force is analogous to neutron; formal force, electrons; dynamic force, protons. A neutron has neither positive (protons) nor negative (electrons) charge. A neutron is analogous to the ancient symbol of wholeness: the mandorla (or vesica piscis) – the “eye,” constituting the generative powers of the atom as illustrated below.
Formal force manifests prominently in the intellect (frontal-brain), the nervous system, and its organs; Static force, in human affection (mid-brain), the nutritive system, its organ; Dynamic force in the volition or will-to-action (back-side), the muscular system, its organs. Essentially, the body’s movement is determined by nervation (nerve patterns); its dynamic expression (or conduct) through motion; however, the states of both the nervous system and muscular (motive) system are maintained by nutrition – static force. Hence the lead statement of the “PreThink Eating” Drive: “Of what use is “will” and “intellect” without a healthy body for their marvellous expression.”
Each kind of food has a specific influence in stimulating and providing materials for growth to a specific group of mental faculties. When classified, each class of foods is related to each other by the same autonomic nerve responses that unite the faculties themselves. It boils down to one basic fact that, the same radiant waves of force of the universe that pass through our sun to the human brain, likewise drill through each seed-germ, rearrange their molecules of starch and fat into exact chemical numbers.
The alkaline-forming foods molecules (mainly calcium-rich foods in proportion to phosphorus), increase formal energy production and cellular metabolism for maximum brain and nerve functioning. The excitement of the brain allows for greater susceptibility of impression in the nerves of every part of the body. By degree of formal force, perception becomes more vivid, and the imagination more fructified with ideas.
It is, however, a scientific fact that next to meat-eating, the thinking process produces most of the acids that waste body tissues. To prevent destruction of body tissues, which gives rise also to morbid thoughts, acid-forming foods in a meal must, by chemical law, be balanced with alkaline-forming foods. These agonistic chemicals exert the extreme opposite effect on the pH scale.Alkaline-forming molecules, best adapted to formal force, are indispensable for neutralizing the destructive acids. It is mineral calcium that strengthens will power (dynamic force), gives absolute conviction and combativeness (persistence of volition in overcoming difficulties), in the great contest of volition (will) against fate (karma).
Accordingly, dynamic force is progressive. It is the most capable of the two branches of powerful and sustained mental effort and considerable power in any department. It is that power that sways commanding influence over mankind, taking the lead in large enterprises, trade and commerce, etc.
The execution of volition depends on phosphorus food, abounding in the grains, and especially seafood. In a statement made by the late biologist and geologist, Professor Agassiz, Boston, Massauchusett (May 28, 1807–December 14, 1873):
“The fish enters largely into the requisition of the human system. It is a kind of food which refreshes the system, especially after intellectual fatigue. There is no other article of food that supplies the waste of the head so thoroughly as fish diet; and the evidence of it is in the fact that all the inhabitants of the sea shores, the world over, are the brighter population of the country. Fish contains phosphorus to a large extent – a chemical element which the brain requires for growth and health.”
Phosphorus and calcium are the two critical elements to the brain and muscle precocity, as well as for the fortifying the different bodily structures – the rests of minerals and vitamins only assist them. Call them the psychosomatic elements: phosphorus is indispensable to the mind and calcium to the body. Phosphorus-rich foods, which are linked inseparably to the mineral calcium mineral and the B vitamins, constitute the whole group of minerals for brain and nerve.Phosphorus is present in the fluids within the cells of living tissues as the phosphate ion. It takes part in the chemical reactions with proteins, essential fats, and carbohydrates to give the body energy (glucose), and vital minerals for growth and repair, e.g., phospholipids, which are important in the synthesis of DNA and RNA. It is the acid-forming mineral that stimulates and builds constitution, and promote increased motive force and efficiency for the ever greater perfecting of human works.
This class of food molecules, on their own, are not strong enough to produce chemical reaction. Their principal role of these static pH-group of foods is to participate in reactions between the [formative] acid-forming food molecules and the alkaline-forming, dynamic molecules, in supplying body heat, as well as to fortify the immune system, among other vital roles.
Some of the more favourable sugar-based carbons favourable to human affectional nature are found abounding “the static groups of foods.” These are the weak acid-forming and weak alkaline-forming food items. Such are the majority of fruits and tender vegetables; honey, sugar-cane, the milk sugars, including breast milk. There are also the plant-based palmitoleic fats, such as peanut oil, macadamia nut oil, sea buckthorn berry oil, etc.
The static group of foods are the principal sources of natural sugars in nature, thus consequently fattening. Their glucose must be joined to protein molecules (derived mainly from meats and legumes) for transport. However, when there is excess dietary sugars (4:1 Rule) — even if the diet is void of the redundant carbons — the result is excess sugar molecules joining a protein molecule in forming glysolated proteins (glycoproteins).It is the condition that gives rise to increased fructosamine levels (high blood sugar). It not only causes inadequate production of proteolytic enzymes, hormones and antigens, but also cellular dysfunction and structural damage. The same way excess of some types of monounsaturated (static) fats are known to promote insulin resistance. That is, when normal amounts of insulin are inadequate to produce the normal insulin response from fat, muscle and liver cells, resulting in elevated free fatty acids (triglycerides) in the blood plasma.
- Different food items are related to each other by the same law of reciprocity that links the mental faculties together.
- There are three mental forces: formal (intellectual product), static (affectional product), and dynamic (motive product) are augmented by three classes of food: Carbonates (sugars, starches, and fats); Phosphates (mineral matter, with phosphorus the chief element); Nitrates (nitrogen is the principal element and is not limited to proteins).
- The Intellectual product has an affinity to the class of foods high in phosphorus; the second series, the Affectional force to the starches, sugars and fats; the third series, the Volitional product to foods, high in nitrogen (nitrates).
- Food is essentially fire (oxygen), water (hydrogen), air (nitrogen), and earth (carbon). The process of digestion is nothing more than separating foods in the categories of the elements of fire, water, air, and earth, analogous to the four principal temperaments: sanguine (airy), melancholic (watery), choleric (fiery) and phlegmatic (earthy).
- The same way the human temperament radiates the blood so too does the temperament of fruits and vegetables are radiated in their acids.
- Particular foods are related to each other by the same laws of responsive harmony that unite the human faculties themselves. Subsequently, the radiation of different kinds of food have great influence in stimulating and furnishing materials of growth to special groups of mental or physical powers. For instance, seed-germs, plants, as well as certain animal products such as fresh cow’s milk still warm from milking are rich in vital force, which is recuperative force for the human body.
