Kidney & Kidney Bean Reflexology
By Atom Bergstrom
The kidney bean is in Geometric Body Resonance with the human kidney.
And the ear.
And the fetus.
Geometric Body Resonance (named by Adano Ley) is also known as …
Anatomical Alliteration (named by Dr. Ralph Alan Dale)
Doctrine of Signatures (dating back to ancient Greece)
SONICS (sound) creates Geometric Body Resonance, stepping down into …
Air, Fire, Water, and Air.
According to Jacob Boehme, “a like tone or sound catches and moves another, and in the sound the spirit imprints its own similitude, which it has conceived in the essence, and brought to form in the principle.”
That’s the definition of Reflexology — reflects / ology.
Geometry determines the Signature.
That’s why a gong — big, small, or in between — always sounds like a gong.
And a cymbal — big, small, or in between — always sounds like a cymbal.
The geometry governs the difference.
An adzuki bean is a small kidney bean.
A kidney bean is a small ear, kidney, and fetus.
An ear is a small kidney.
A right kidney is a small left kidney (by an average of 3 centimeters).
A left kidney is a small fetus (at least after 15 weeks or so).
Now you get the idea, assuming you didn’t already know it, so I might be preaching to the choir.
A well-cooked kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is beneficial to the kidney.
So is a well-cooked adzuki bean (Vigna angularis).
The emphasis is on “well-cooked.”
Don’t soak beans in cold water. (Regarding soaking, a bean is smarter than a being.)
Boil them for three minutes, then let them stand for two hours.
Pour off the water, and repeat the process two more times.
Now, you’ve eliminated up to 90% of the after-lunch flatulence.
Why lunch? Because that’s the ideal time to eat a bean, especially between 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. if you’re intent on sending a Care Package to your kidneys.
Well-cooked (at high temperatures) kidney beans support kidney health.
The emphasis is on high temperatures.
An undercooked kidney bean is actually more toxic than a raw kidney bean.
Anyone eating undercooked kidney beans has been poisoned to a greater or lesser degree.
Most people never notice the difference … but their internal organs always do.
Every internal organ comes with its own “brain.”
It’s the highest choice for the brain inside the skull to learn to communicate with the brains inside the liver, heart, kidneys, etc.
Thorough cooking destroys anti-nutrients, including kidney bean lectin (phytohaeagglutinin).
Lectins recruit the microbiome to make people sick or dead.
Lectins don’t poison germ-free animals.
Unfortunately, we all have intestinal bugs, so it’s best to walk big circles around raw or undercooked lectins.
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“The adzuki bean acts like a diuretic.”
The kidney bean doesn’t, according to him.
So adzuki is the better choice for losing water weight.
Plus, it’s lower in lectins.
Macrobiotic cooks just serve the broth — adzuki bean broth tea.
