Thirty Days and Thirty Nights In An Ancient World
In the deserts of Egypt, northern Africa, is a small village 70 miles from the borders of Libya. The village was cut off from the commercial world for hundreds of years until, in 1989, a road was built.
This allowed commercial traffic to this ancient village. It is 14 hours from Cairo so many vehicles couldn’t make the full journey in the heat. This meant the village remained isolated from processed foods.
As I do not eat refined foods, and know how dangerous they are to health, I had to go and experience this lifestyle for myself.
This ancient village has only had electricity in the main part of the village for a few years. Many people live outside the village and use fire to see by at night. And until very, very recently there were no mobile phones.
It’s all about the food
The Bedouin people, who still live as they have done for thousands of years, their water pure and mineralised comes up from springs that are thousands of feet underground. They grow their own food which includes an amazing variety of fruits and vegetables, palm dates, grains, herbs and spices. And they breed goats, chicken and cows.
They drink camel, cow and goats’ milk and also make hard and soft cheese. This ancient place is a sea of olive groves and palm dates so their oils were pure.
The village did not have to have a dentist until 1991 and there was no tooth decay due to their diet, suggesting that refined foods and medication is the cause of tooth decay.
There is no self-harming or suicides in this village.
I believe, and have empirical evidence for the book I am writing, that our diet causes most of our mental illnesses, alcoholism, inflammation of the body, tooth decay, diabetes, brain tumours, cancers, alzheimers, dementia, blood diseases, heart attacks, kidney and liver disease. This is due to the lack of minerals, nutrition, essential fatty acids, trace minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants.
