Well it’s actually not as complicated as you’d expect!
The green pigment found in all plants and algaes is chlorophyll. This is needed for photosynthesis to occur; the process which allows plants to absorb light from the sun and convert it into a viable energy source. Chlorophyll is almost identical to haemoglobin (human blood), except that the central atom in our blood is iron; in plants it’s magnesium.
Cleansing the Soul
Nature has its own colour code, would you believe it!
The colour green is synonymous with vitality, energy, and life. Where there is a flourishing arrangement of this sign, there is life-force present. Chlorophyll is nature’s greatest blood cleanser and blood builder – it builds the body from the inside out.
The vibration of green in nature is clearly one of peace and ease. Animals that are focused on vegetation have a dominantly alkaline state; they exude ease and relaxation. Contrastingly, carnivorous animals have an acidic state and are more defensive and aggressive – yet another reason to increase your intake of greens!
Lost your charge for life?
Green leafy vegetables are important for their alkaline mineral content, promoting stable blood sugar, stress reduction, clear thoughts and muscle relaxation. Those suffering from anaemia can help alleviate this condition with more fresh, organically-grown green vegetables and herbs. Herbs are highly alkaline and have strong medicinal properties. I enjoy a wide variety of greens and herbs such as parsley, watercress, basil and dandelion in my salad.
When we are in a balanced state of alkalinity we are more conductive. Each red blood cell is potentially a magnetic generator. Its capacity for electrical charge (ionic-exchange) is relevant to the liquid-medium (blood plasma) and mineral matrix it bathes in.
When we lack conductive elements, we lose our charge, thus losing our charge for life. This causes increased fatigue, joint/bone deterioration, skin blemishes, cognitive decline and all forms of accelerated aging.
Fortunately, Chlorophyll is one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, which can be broken down into liquid-oxygen. The beginning of any dis-ease is the complete lack of oxygen and all relief (whether physical, emotional or spiritual) begins through the reintroduction of oxygen. How about that ‘ey’?
The Blueprint to Rejuvenation
Chlorophyll represents the blueprint of health. Without it all other conversations surrounding nutrition are like feeding sick fish healthy flakes, while they swim in dirty water. Chlorophyll flushes out the fluid-transportation system of our body, thus rejuvenating us at the deepest levels for inner and outer transformation.
There you have it, when mumma said it, she meant it – we really should eat our greens!
