Healing Foods that Look Like Body Parts
Ever notice that grapes look just like alveoli? Interestingly enough, it is written in the Ancient Ayurvedic texts that grapes are good for strengthening the respiratory system, especially good for treating patients with asthma and bronchitis. Like many Ayurvedic theories, modern research has since proven this to be true, they have discovered that resveratrol, found in the skins of red grapes can help treat Athsma and COPD. This is just one example of the many foods that have an uncanny resemblance to the human body parts they nourish. Have you ever really looked at a walnut? It looks exactly like a human brain! It is no surprise that walnuts have also been mentioned in the Ayurvedic texts as beneficial for the brain tissue. Next time you peel that banana, or slice open that avocado, think about what body part it might benefit and do some research, you’ll be amazed at what you find!
