Potatoes - healthy or not?



Do you know how good potatoes can be for your health?


Phenomenally good - and they harbour heaps of power which they pass on to you. One or the other piece of information here about it will surely be of great benefit to you.

 

Unfortunately, the potato often does not have the best of reputations. It is said to be partly responsible for obesity, diabetes, cancer, candida amongst other diseases. Why this is not necessarily the case and - quite on the contrary - the potato can help you against these and other diseases you can find out in this post.




What potatoes can accomplish

 

  • They absorb large amounts of minerals and trace elements from the soil. Among other things, they are rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium, B vitamins and the amino acid L-lysine.

 

  • The amino acid L-lysine helps against cancer, liver disease, inflammation, viruses such as EBV and the pathogen that causes shingles, which themselves can be the causes of many other illnesses such as autoimmune diseases, joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer, etc.

 

  • The skin of the potato is an important source of nutrients, rich in amino acids, protein, and phytochemicals. Together with coenzymes and other bioactive substances in the potato these are effective against viruses, fungi and bacteria, they strengthen the kidneys and calm the nerves as well as the digestive tract.

 

  • Overall, the potato is your ally against stress, liver disease, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome and stomach ulcers.

 

  • And potatoes are good for diabetics because they stabilize the blood sugar.

 

  • With their high starch content, potatoes nourish the brain and provide grounding, support and emotional stability. It thus passes on its great vitality to you.

 

  • The potato can support you with the following symptoms: Anxiety, aphthae, inflammation, cold sores, cramps, food allergies, thyroid problems, sleep disorders, hearing loss, dizziness, etc.


 

There is one big drawback to pay attention to!

 

The combination of carbohydrates and fat is highly problematic. It makes us tired and droopy quickly as well as having a detrimental effect on various functions in the body. This combo opens the door to diseases, including chronic ones. Unfortunately, this fact is hardly taken into account by conventional medicine, but it poses a serious threat to our health and vitality.

 

As the potato has a very high starch (sugar) content and is often combined with fat in many dishes, this dangerous combination is very common. This is where its bad reputation derives from. However - the problem lies with the fat, or more precisely the combination of carbohydrates and fat. You can find out exactly why this is the case in my blog: https://www.jbigler.ch/post/fat-yes-or-no.


 

Remarks and tips 


  • There is a recurring rumour that potatoes and other nightshade plants are poisonous and worsen arthritis because they promote inflammation. This has not been proven so far to my knowledge. As already mentioned, it is the combination of carbohydrates and fat that is favourable for health problems. You can find out a lot about the main causes of today's diseases in general in my blog: https://www.jbigler.ch/post/fat-yes-or-no.

 

  • Cold sores can be soothed with a freshly cut slice of potato. Simply place the potato slice on the cold sore.

 

  • According to Anthony William, potatoes even absorb mobile phone radiation and other electromagnetic fields (Anthony William; Life-Changing Food).

To do this, place a potato in a bowl in the room and change it every 5 days.The fact that mobile phone radiation should be anything but underestimated becomes clear, for example, from the following information (German): Talk by Prof. Dr Dr Manfred Spitzer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iBA0WlmbI0 and the documentary film "Thank you for calling'' by Klaus Scheidsteger from 2016.

 

  • Once again, I would like to emphasise the great importance of eating plenty of fresh coriander every day. It is essential for the elimination of mercury from our bodies, especially from the brain. This highly toxic heavy metal has increased and spread massively in our environment over the last 200 years. In addition, many people have mercury in their bodies from birth, inherited from their ancestors. Mercury plays a causal role in diseases such as ADHD, autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc. As viruses and harmful bacteria also feed on mercury, it indirectly promotes many inflammatory processes and autoimmune diseases.

 

  • If you don't like coriander herb at all, you can use it in smoothies; together with fruit or ginger, its flavour is barely noticeable.


 

Preperation/Cooking

 

  • Potatoes are best steamed in their skins. This preserves the important nutrients and enhances the healing properties. Potatoes should be organically grown because otherwise they are much more contaminated with harmful substances. They can also be eaten with the skin on.

 

  • Instead of cheese and sour cream, you can enjoy potatoes in more healthy way with homemade or additive-free salsa, avocado, tahini, hummus, cashew-, hemp seed - or sunflower seed sauce, etc. (carefully check the fat content of each ingredient and use accordingly moderate).

 

  • Chunks of potato are also delicious, hot or cold, in a variety of salads. Enzymes in the potato strengthen healing alkaloids in the leafy vegetables.

 

  • Try the following low-fat salad dressing: 1-2 pressed garlic cloves, juice from 1-2 lemons, a little tahini, 2-3 tbsp maple syrup, a little herbal salt and lots of fresh herbs (flat-leaf parsley and fresh coriander go well with everything. Alternatively also possible with sage, basil, thyme and oregano).

 

  • A “Chilli Sin Carne” (meatless Chilli) with cashew cream is very tasty:

Puree 1 cup of cashew nuts, lemon juice, 1-2 dates, 1 clove of garlic and a little water in a blender. Bake large jacket potatoes, then cut in half, press into a plate, top with chilli and fresh coriander and enjoy.


 

Hopefully this post will give the tuber a regular place in your everyday life (again). 

 

Enjoy the winter! Warming potatoes will help you;-)
