Dr. Walker was born January 28, 1867 and I have been told hedied in December 1985. Dr. Walker began his journey intonutrition in his early 50s after he became very ill. At thesuggestion of Dr. H. William Baum, a chiropractor in NewYork City, Dr. Walker rejected the medical route, turned hisback on the Sad American Diet of his day, and changed hisdiet to raw vegetarian. Not only did he recover from all ofhis physical problems, but he went on to live to the ripeold age of almost 120.

Dr. Walker was the "inventor" of carrot juice and became aprolific writer. His books have had a profound effect on mylife. This week I would like to share an excerpt from hisbook FRESH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICES - WHAT'S MISSING INYOUR BODY. As you read it, remember that he wrote thesewords over 60 years ago!

"WHAT'S MISSING IN YOUR BODY? I know that if I do not drinka sufficient quantity of fresh, raw vegetable juices, thenas likely as not, my full quota of nourishment-ENZYMES ismissing from my body. How about you?

You and you alone are responsible for the result of how younourish your body. The LIFE in your food is what counts.Your body is composed of billions of microscopic cells.Your very existence depends on them. They need nourishment,live, active nourishment. It depends on you, and on youalone, whether the food you eat results in nutrition ormalnutrition!

ENZYMES - The basic key to the efficacy of nourishing yourbody is the life which is present in your food and of thoseintangible elements known as enzymes.

In other words, the element which enables the body to benourished and live, that element which is hidden within theseeds of plants and in the sprouting and growth of plants isa life principle known as enzymes.

Enzymes have been described as complex substances whichenable us to digest food and to absorb it into our blood.It has also been claimed that enzymes digest cancers.

In order to perform such classified operations, enzymeswould require a body of some kind, a physical or materialorganism. This they do not have, any more than electricitywith its multitude of phases, such as voltage, amperage,wattage, etc., does not have substance, but it activatessubstances of which it is not an integral part. Thusenzymes are not 'substances.' Enzymes are an intangiblemagnetic Cosmic Energy of Life Principle (not a substance),which is intimately involved in the action and activity ofevery atom in the human body, in vegetation, and in everyform of life.

Once we get this clearly into our consciousness, we willknow definitely why our food should be intelligently andproperly selected, and why it should be raw, uncooked andunprocessed.

We cannot have life and death at the same time, either inconnection with our body, or with vegetables, fruits, nutsand seeds. Where there is life, there are enzymes.Enzymes are sensitive to temperatures above 118 degreesFahrenheit [We teach 107 degrees]. Above 120 degrees enzymesbecome sluggish, just as the human body becomes languid andrelaxed in a hot bath. At 130 degrees, the life of enzymesis extinct. They are dead.

Within seeds, enzymes are in a dormant state, and underproper conditions will remain in a state of suspendedanimation for hundreds and thousands of years.

Life as LIFE cannot be explained, so we describe enzymes asa Cosmic Energy Principle or vibration which promotes achemical action or change in atoms and molecules, causing areaction, without changing, destroying or using up theenzymes themselves in the process.

In other words, enzymes are catalysts and as such theypromote action or change without altering or changing theirown status.

With this brief explanation, you are better able toappreciate the value, reason, logic and intelligence ofchoosing the food with which you intend to nourish yourbody, not only food in the raw state, but also food used andprepared so that it will nourish the cells and tissues ofyour body in the most speedy and efficient manner possible.

The great Law of Life is replenishment. If we do not eat,we die. Just as surely, if we do not eat the kind of foodwhich will nourish the body constructively, we not only dieprematurely but we suffer along the way.

Our body needs to be supplied daily with the same elementswith which it is composed. Due thought, attention andconsideration to the other two parts of our being, namelyour mind and spirit, provides our total life with completehealth.

We can eat the finest and most constructive food increation, but this will not prevent the disintegration ofthe body if resentments, fear, worry, frustration andnegative states of mind are permitted to obsess us.

Health is the indisputable foundation for the satisfactionof life. Everything of domestic joy or occupational successmust be built on body wholesomeness and vitality..."

"Nutrition must be vital or ORGANIC. Salts and mineralmatter must be vitally organic in order that they may beassimilated by the human body for the rebuilding andregeneration of the body cells and tissues.

The rays of the sun send billions of atoms into plant life,activating the enzymes and by this force they changeinorganic elements into organic or life-containing elementsfor food. . . .

Our body is made up of many atomic elements. The principleones are oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium,phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium, iron,iodine, chlorine, fluorine, silicon, and manganese.

Except for accidents, all the repair and regeneration of ourbody must come from within. The body is out of balance whenthe blood stream, cells, tissues, organs, glands and therest of the body do not contain these elements in properproportion or are deficient. The result is a condition thatis just plain poisonous. It is called toxemia.

In order to regain and maintain the proper balance ofhealth, most of the food we eat must contain live, vitalorganic elements. These elements are found in fresh rawvegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

Oxygen is one of the most essential elements. As soon asfood is cooked, its oxygen is lost. The enzymes aredestroyed at 130 degrees, and most of the vital force neededfor nourishment is dissipated.

The fact that for generations millions upon millions ofpeople have lived and are living who have rarely if evereaten anything but cooked foods does not prove that theirbeing alive is the result of eating cooked foods. As amatter of fact, they are in a state of decadent existencewhich is confirmed by the toxic condition of their bodies.Else, . . . . why such a high rate of heart trouble,diabetes, cancer, emphysema, premature senility andpremature deaths?

Our Creator developed the human body with an inherentcolossal amount of tolerance. When we eat anything that is'not good' for us or that is incompatible with ournutritional requirements and balance, we suffer. We arewarned and punished by pain or by cramps, leading eventuallyto disease and perhaps to any one or more of the infinitenumber of ailments which afflict humanity.

Such punishment may not manifest immediately, nor beimmediately apparent, but because of the body's miraculoustolerance we will be kept waiting for days, perhaps monthsor maybe years, before the long-range retribution called forby Nature for the infraction of her laws catches up with us.

Once we discover the natural means to regain and to maintainour health at a high rate of vibration, we experience thebliss which results from putting that discovery into dailypractice. It seems both strange and pitiful that so manypeople will not consider the matter but will deliberatelycontinue into inevitable toxemia decadence. Mental andintestinal fortitude coupled with a little study could helpthem avoid premature and often painful disintegration.

WHY NOT EAT THE VEGETABLES? Without the knowledge of theprinciples involved in the use of fresh, raw vegetable andfruit juices, one would naturally ask: 'Why not eat theWHOLE vegetable and fruit instead of extracting the juiceand discarding the fibers?'

The answer is simple: solid food requires many hours ofdigestive activity before its nourishment is finallyavailable to the cells and tissues of the body. While thefibers in solid food have virtually no nourishing value,they do act as an intestinal broom during the peristalticactivity of the intestines, hence the need to eat raw foodsin addition to drinking juices. However, the removal of thefibers in the extraction of the juices enables juices to bevery quickly digested and assimilated, sometimes in a matterof minutes, with a minimum of effort and exertion on thepart of the digestive system. . . .

Whole vegetables and fruits are composed of a considerablequantity of fibers. Within the interstices of these fibersare enclosed the atoms and molecules which are the essentialnutritional elements we need. It is these atoms andmolecules and their respective enzymes in the fresh rawjuices, which aid the speedy nourishment of cells andtissues, glands, organs and every part of our body. . . .

The juices extracted from fresh raw vegetables and fruitsare the means by which we can furnish all the cells andtissues of the body with the elements and nutritionalenzymes they need in the manner they can be most readilydigested and assimilated. . . ."

If you have not read FRESH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICES by Dr.N. W. Walker let me encourage you to do so. - and to thinkthat he had this knowledge over sixty years ago!
