Hi welcome to alkaline state of mind. What does alkaline state of mind entail? Well basically I am under the belief that our foods and environment play a vital role in not only our physical health but more importantly our mental health. A lot of us “African-Americans” are clueless as to why it is always said our group is at the highest risk for high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. There seems to be this misconception that across races there is no biological difference as far as genes and blood. This is simply not true, many times investigators are left with a body that is unrecognizable due to many factors( dismembered face, decay, ect.) yet the sex and race is still easily identifiable. So yes what I’m implying here is that black people(don’t like the term African-American) should not be eating this American garbage that has been misnamed nutrition. We are sick people, and this so-called “soul food” is the work of evil, and will rob you of your life! We have this misconception that the food pyramid and the health standard is the same across races and nations, we must stop adhering to a health standard of sick people. It is no secret, America has the most unhealthy and unethical food practices on the planet. Why in your right mind would you continue to entertain and appease these known frauds? Are we so conditioned by Eurocentric ideology that we throw all common sense out the window when a “scientist” or “expert” says so? Is this not the same sickness as the sheep of the church blindly killing in the name of Jesus? Or the same sickness we see with the monsters who burn and behead in the name of Allah? What many of us here fail to realize, is that science is a religion. Obviously science is a very helpful tool in exercising our logical brain, but when we have grown arrogant and close minded due to indoctrination(not education) we have failed, and become no better than the “religious zealot”. Science is much too limited to even pretend to be the end all be all yet we as an entire global society cling onto its every last word. If we are to cure ourselves from these diseases and ailments we must abandon 100% the ideology of Eurocentric arrogance aka western education. A group of sick people asking the men who gave them their ailments for the cure is the definition of insanity. If they can’t cure diabetes after billions upon billions poured in, hundreds of years of research I think it’s time to look elsewhere. Especially considering their synthetic compounds are based off the “evil voodoo witch doctory” of your “primitive” ancestors. Why did massa ask mammy witch doctor for medical assistance instead of the trained physician? A well funded and qualified doctor was at massa’s finger tips yet he goes to the slave to be cured? Clearly something is wrong with that picture here. Why would a man who can easily have the best quality healthcare at no inconvenience chose an illiterate, primitive slave instead? It is time for us to return to that African woman, that mambo, that voodoo woman. She is not evil, she is the standard. Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise. It’s time for us to stop shaming and defaming our mother and instead worship her, and learn from what great healing knowledge she possesses. My grandmother was a healer and even my own cousins would take advice from the MD over our own flesh and blood. Our very own flesh and blood who proved she cured disease, unlike that high paid fluke who could care less about your health. There is too much money into keeping us all sick. Not just black folks but everyone. Us as black people must detach on our own though; no one will help us properly, nor should we expect it. The white American will not give up the MD and convincing him otherwise is a waste of time. He will follow you through example as he always does. It is not our job to save others until we ourselves are saved. It is the mistake we always make, and for it, we are used and taken advantage of. If we are to reverse the disease we have to, no if ands or buts about it, abandon fully the ideology of western society. So long as this is a fear of the black people, there will be no significant progress.
