Dear Shawn,

What we fuel our bodies with on a daily basis affects the repair/ rebuild/repeat process of our cells while we sleep at night, so as to be able to work in our waking hours.

Roger Bezanis coined the above terms (and drew up these illustrations) to make it easier for people to understand.

Flow-through means whole foods: raw, fresh fruits, veggies, greens—anything out of the garden and orchard, that is unprocessed by heat—whereby the blood platelets/cells are free-flowing and can do their job well. With a sticky diet, the blood cells start sticking together, causing inflammation and a toxic build-up in and around the cells and creating an environment that is a “garbage landfill” of pain, sickness, and dis-ease.
