Dr. Paul Kouchakoff made one of the more prominent discoveries in the 1930s. He found that consumption of cooked and processed food triggered an immune response by the body. Essentially, your body treats cooked and processed food as a foreign invader that must be destroyed. This physical response is called digestive leukocytosis.

When food is cooked (many believe over 110 degrees Fahrenheit) or processed, it loses its integrity and its digestive enzymes may be completely destroyed. Destruction of your digestive enzymes trigger your white blood cells into a frenzy. They must now do the job the destroyed digestive enzymes can no longer do.

This process causes inflammation and can lead to metabolic diseases. However, Dr. Kouchakoff found that digestive leukocytosis can be mitigated when eating some raw vegetation with cooked food. Why? Because raw vegetation is not attacked by your immune system.

Raw vegetation is the key to proper gut efficiency during the digestive process. Your digestive tract needs enzymes to function properly, but most of the food the average person eats doesn’t contain them.

The concept of eating more salads and fruits gets lost in the chaos of our fast-paced society, even when we know it’s the key to metabolic health. That said, do your best to eat lots of fruit—I suggest six pieces per day. Also, a large green salad per day will greatly help your situation, too. Give your body what it needs and it will respond positively.
