The Yin & Yang Of Some Foods

Acidity and alkalinity, according to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty), are “plus and minus, or Yin and Yang.”

He said …

“This polarity changes every hour. Very fast breathing is a hyper condition, or alkalinity. The breath comes in too soon. High blood pressure results. Breathing too slow is a hypo condition, or acidity. The breath comes in too late. The result is low blood pressure.”

An acid, sour taste reveals the presence of hydrogen atoms charged with positive electricity, while an alkaline, soapy taste indicates hydroxyl radicals charged with negative electricity.

A cactus or bromeliad is acid or sour in the morning (peaking between 5:00-7:00 a.m.) and bitter in the evening (peaking between 7:00-9:00 p.m.).

Examples of cactus foods …

1) nopalitos (the flat stems of prickly pear)

2) cactus pear (fruit of the prickly pear)

Examples of bromeliad foods …

1) pineapple (fruit of the most economically significant plant of the bromeliad family)

2) dragon fruit (originally native to Mexico)

Cactus or bromeliad foods are evening Growth Zone 3 foods that can be used as medicine in the early morning (Large Intestine Time).

Paul R. Ehrlich (The Machinery of Nature: The Living World Around Us–And How It Works, 1986) wrote …

“Many desert plants further reduce the loss of what water they do have by means of a special kind of metabolism that permits them to acquire carbon dioxide during the night to be used for photosynthesis the following day, thus keeping their pores closed during the heat of the day, when the potential for water loss is at its greatest.”

Bill Freedman (“Cactus,” The Gale Encyclopedia of Science, Vol. I, 1996) wrote ….

“Cacti have a so-called crassulacean-acid metabolism, in which atmospheric carbon dioxide is only taken up during the night, when the stomates are open. The carbon dioxide is fixed into four-carbon, organic acids, and can later be released within the plant, to be fixed into sugars by photosynthesis when the sun is shining during the daylight hours.”

Susan Milius (“Torn to Ribbons in the Desert: Botanists puzzle over one of Earth’s oddest plants, Science News, Oct. 27, 2001) wrote …

“Plants can switch to and from the CAM [crassulacean acid metabolism] water-saving mode. About half of cactus species can use CAM, and so can many of the orchids and bromeliads that cluster in tree canopies a long way from soil moisture.”

    What goes for the cactus and bromeliad families is true for the agave family too.

    Examples of agave “foods” are …

    1) 100-percent blue agave tequila

    2) pulque (alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the agave plant)

    The same goes for the aloe family.

    Examples of aloe herbs are …

    1) Aloe vera

    2) Aloe arborescens–e-books.php

    Re: Any thoughts on spirits, or “ghosts in the machine?”

    According to Swami Nitty-Gritty, they exist, but most people who think they are experiencing them are actually victims of their own malfunctioning Spleen-Pancreas Meridian.–e-books.php

    Hi Atom,
    Re Cactus or bromeliad foods are evening Growth Zone 3 foods that can be used as medicine in the early morning (Large Intestine Time).

      A food’s nutritional/maintenance and medicinal/therapeutic times may differ.

      For example, aloes are medicine for low blood sugar in the early morning.

      Also, fish is medicine for erectile dysfunction at Liver Time.

          5:00-7:00 a.m. (Large Intestine Time) is ideal. :)
