The Shape of Foods Helps Specific Organs?? O yes they do…

25 Aug

I received a few times a “chain email” telling me the importance of certain foods for certain organs based on how their shape resembles the organ they’re supposed to help.

My natural medicine doctor always tells us… “Let your food be your medicine. Health starts with what you eat.” And this Teleological Nutritional Targeting, or as it was once known as Law of Similarities, is right alongside the same path as what our doctor always says. Let’s eat more naturally to create a healthier, better future. We’re the creators of our own destiny and that includes what we eat…

I was intrigued by the visual impact of how much the food and the organ shape resembles. I am sure each fruit/vegetable has many more benefits than just the ones to the organs they resemble, but I found it so curious I wanted to share with all you…


When you cut a carrot crosswise, the insides resemble the iris and pupil of the eye. The Vitamin A in carrots help protect the cornea and promotes good blood flow inside the eyes. Carrots also protect your night vision and prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.

I guess the tale we used to hear that Bugs Bunny had great eyesight is actually true and not so tall after all.

Here are a few carrot recipes to try soon:

Orange’d Roasted Carrots

Vanilla Maple Carrots

Undercover Carrot Mac and Cheese

Carrot Cupcakes

Carrot Burfi

    Actually, the idea of certain foods being beneficial to certain parts of the body is widely known and accepted in India – walnuts for brain, almonds for eyes, cashews for ears, avocado for ovaries, okhra for memory..we frequently tallk about it to kids so as to encourage them to eat these..

    I heard this the first time from an accupuncturist in the 80’s, who told me to drink tea made of lotus root for chest congestion, stating the similarity of the aspect of this root and that of the interior of the lungs to be indicative in Chinese medicine of it’s healthy effects on the lungs.

      did it work???? Inquiring minds want to know…

        Oh, yes, it does work as an expectorant and did not taste as horrid as the herbs & twigs the Chinatown pharmacy would give me to simmer. Those made the house stink for days, but they also work. I would bring the recipe from the accupucnturist to Chinatown and go home to stink up my house, then feel better:)
        The same person told me that miso is used as an expectorant in Japan, that traffic cops drink it instead of tea to cough up what they breathe in all day, so for years whenever I had a cold I would grab the miso soup and add it to this protocol. That always worked well too. Now I cannot eat soy, but my daughter still uses the miso whenever she has a cold instead of chiken soup. All’s fair in the fight against the common cold!
