The main thing about caring for children and biochemical transformation
This chapter is written for the revised US edition of the Zen Macrobiotic with a purely practical purpose. Many adults who with ease and pleasure have made Macrobiotics through their lives, with fear and indecision in the face, reacted to the raised questions on the application of non-traditional diet to children.
How do we know that we are doing the right thing?
What should I do if ...?
And does my child need ...?
I find that I feel great for a long time without vitamins C, but how's my growing baby?
There are infinitely many questions. In general, they reveal one thing: today people hate textbooks, instructions, manuals, ready-made recipes that regulate each step and thereby eliminate any possibility of correct thinking and independent understanding of the matter. Accustomed to agreeing with the opinion of specialists, people are completely at a dead end when they are told that their own health and the health of their children depends on the level of development of their common sense, their understanding of the infinite universe and its law.
In the East, there is a tradition: young people, after reaching the age of 17, take responsibility for their future, whether it will be fortunately or not. Until, of course, parents are fully responsible for them. Then they rely entirely on the common sense of their children.
Residents of the West smile on this fake: "What a great idea - we are saved!". In fact, they are afraid of losses. And right. For a modern inhabitant of the West, the acceptance of this viewpoint means such a change in his rather deep stereotypes of thinking, which would be a fundamental shock to him, since he would thereby assume full parental responsibility for his family. He is able at best to blame the external circumstances for a long time in the difficulties with which even his children are found.
Where is the way out? It depends on the following:
1. A sober individual must understand that he is ignorant of the actions of the universe, that modern life and her upbringing make him (and most people) enemies of his own natural instinct and intuition.
2. He must undertake a more in-depth study of philosophy, only a small part of which is Macrobiotics.
3. He must find a dynamic balance in his diet and drink - a pledge of increased understanding and development of sanity.
4. Students should use the Yin and Yang principle in their entire life and in all their activities, especially in caring for young children.
All that is needed is a belief in one's own common sense, which comes only as a result of a deep study (true prayer and meditation).
Fear and failure disappear in such an atmosphere: there is no danger here - the path to health and well-being is open to both parents and children.
The tremendous effectiveness of the macrobiotic method has a root in the process of transformation, without which nothing in nature (including the human body) can develop. Put simply, this is the phenomenon of the transformation of one element into another by a natural or artificial way. This process, known and understandable thousands of years ago (according to the legends of the East), allows you to get gold from other elements and create combinations of metals and other substances. Modern science can repeat this with enormous difficulties, despite the complex theoretical work and equipment.
I always told my students that they can turn themselves from presumptuous patients, especially materialists, into modest, healthy, spiritual personalities, instead of being happy only at birth and then being killed by misfortune, murderers or microbes, or, in at the extreme, to end their lives as a professional slave, they can enjoy endless freedom, eternal happiness, and absolute justice for many years. Now, after 20 years of effort on my part, it is proved that biochemical transformation is not the mysticism of ancient alchemists, not even an abstract philosophical concept. This is a practical living, proven reality.
June 21, 1964 in Tokyo, I completed the experience of converting a sodium element into an element of potassium in laboratory conditions of low temperatures, pressures and energy. Around this remarkable research in science, the initial impression of an exploded bomb still does not subside, since this type of reaction usually requires the use of high-energy accelerators. Our result, however, is obtained by using only a 20-centimeter vacuum tube and about 100 watts of power! (Further scientific research proving the theory of biochemical transmutation was described in the revolutionary works of M. Louis Careren, a French biologist).
The possibility of our meeting in 1960 directly affected the startling discovery on June 21.
The great significance of this discovery for parents is a double one:
1. It shows that the biochemical transformation of elements is possible only through the insignificant energy available in the human body.
2. This is a test of the basic position of Macrobiotics, the notion that through the process of transmutation our bodies can produce everything they need for health from a simple set of products. This is the result of following the structure of the infinite universe and its law.
Finally, now our instinctive, intuitive significance of a thousand-year experience can be demonstrated in laboratories. A person should not select elements from nature, as he does when saturating himself with medicines, such as iron, potassium, calcium, vitamin C and varieties of sugars. He must be independent and produce the necessary for himself within his body on his own and for himself.
The statement that this is necessary for the domestic production of fats, proteins or vitamin C can be proved in the following way.
We have the ability to produce everything necessary for health inside our body. If we fill ourselves artificially with the concentrations of elements, this ability fades away because of its inaction. Therefore, the process of creating elements inside the body should be regulated so that its natural ability to endogenous synthesis returns. This will allow to abandon artificial substances. We became slaves to the desire to fill the bodies with what we believe they need.
Instead, we should be the creators of our own inner existence, because we are the center of transformations, the place where they are made. Let us not turn this place into a swamp by ignorance.
A cow, for example, eats one grass, but the structure of its bones is very strong. Where does calcium 40Ca necessary for health come from? Of course, not directly from the grass, especially poor in this element. It is a rich source of another element - potassium (39K).
Hydrogen 'n cow gets out of the water. Biological transmutation of natural internal calcium production in the body follows the formula: 39K + 'H + internal heat (activity) = 40Ca.
There is no point in believing that the process in the human body is different from this one.
People have digestive organs that can convert chlorophyll to hemoglobin. In fact, all of our food is always turned into blood (the initial source of raw material for our current instant after a moment of recreating ourselves) or is thrown away. The calcium received in the laboratory is unnatural for us, because it is the result of the process of life, spoils the blood and can be fatal.
In the process of biochemical transformation, the most important component is activity - a by-product of oxygen and heat (activity protects both the boa and lizard from heat stroke at high ambient temperatures.) If these animals are immobilized for the experience, they will quickly perish) The natural aspiration of a part of normal children be unusually active, is very useful for promoting health. If only their diet is simple and well balanced in terms of Yin-Yang elements.
Parents encountering special difficulties should not worry, they have only two categories to choose from - Yin, Yang. If the shift of the child's diet does not help a little more Yin, the opposite shift (balance with a slight predominance of Yang) will be useful.
However, remember that each change primarily takes time to identify the effect.
Do not change your child's diet often! Try each option for a reasonable period of time. Your thoughts should follow this path: "What is the reason for my child's difficulty? It can only be shifted aside too yin or too yang. First I will try to eliminate Yin. If for some time the condition does not change, or it will be worse, I'll try the opposite way - I'll exclude Jan. The answer will reveal itself. " So you can solve the problem.
Let's discuss the question of how much or how little salt to give to children. The traffic will be our indicator.
Too much salt or its complete elimination leads to low activity. If the kids are especially not active, apathetic, if their natural desire to move is reduced, the amount of salt should be reduced.
Where there is too much salt and low activity, there is no growth. With activity (the latent element of transmutation), the transformation of the raw material of a balanced diet into what is required by the body is minimized, calcium deficiency is created and growth stops.
The process of transmutation goes everywhere where there is life, regardless of the kind of diet that we follow. With the knowledge of how it proceeds, we can truly be the creators of ourselves and our existence. That is why our philosophy is called the philosophy of transformations. Everything changes - the disease becomes health, health - a disease and so on ad infinitum.
Salt consumption becomes an open question and varies from person to person.
He stresses the need for us to think before we act. Take for example an example: in the family there is a habit to give the same amount of salt to all family members for food.
If you do not even consider anything other than the difference in the weight of adults and children, you immediately see the great danger of this method. Imagine that an adult weighing 150 pounds consumes an ounce of salt a week and feels great. A 15-pound child, eating the same amount of salt, is at risk. This can be seen from the following table: adult - 150: 1 child - 15: 1
In proportion to the child should be given only 0, 1 ounce of salt per week: adult - 150: 1 child - 15: 0.1
Followers Macrobiotics should be keenly observant people and think in categories of Yin-Yang.
If you can not disclose the cause of your child's suffering, give him only No. 7 without the addition of salt, miso and tamari. If he does not have any appetite, prepare No. 7 with a lot of water (5 times more than usual) for several days, a week, 10 days, or more. Suppose, the child is very quiet and he is drawn for a long time to lie. We should come to the conclusion that he became Yin (quiet behavior and a pronounced desire for horizontal position - two symptoms of Yin - a condition that is cured with the help of Yang). Further reasoning, however, reveals yet another factor. The child emits little water, pisses a little, sweats little, he does not even have tears. Quite similar, despite the external Yin-symptoms, that he is basically "very Yan". Treat it with diet number 7 without salt, plus a very small amount of apples or apple juice (Yin).
We can make an indisputable conclusion that a child under seven must receive very little salt. For him, even a few grains can make disharmony.
Next, a child of up to three years of age has the right drinking instinct, give him the opportunity to teach you.
Everyone knows that both fire and cold (freezing) cause a skin burn. In each case, the burn is caused by various causes: treatment, of course, must be different. You need to learn to see a common, full picture and not to miss the details. Think, think and think a little more.
Do not take your child too far. Give him the freedom to crawl, walk, run, he needs activity for the mood of his health, do not let his sentimental love deprive the child of mobility. Also, learn from your child. Watch him carefully - he is better than doctors and church ministers to teach you confidence in life. Each child has his own requests. Carefully refer to them and then give a little less.
The biggest problem with children is their desire to absorb a large amount of drinking and eating. The duty of parents is to keep them in a state of mild hunger and a slight sensation of cold. Lower extremities should be open, when possible, the blanket should be light. This will grow a strong Yan baby. Parents whose common sense reaches only a sentimental level of feelings will find it very difficult for themselves, but what is higher than the pleasant standard in our society, where children should be wrapped and heavily fed with food until older? Nevertheless, try this method and you will be surprised by the results.
The maximum number of vegetables for your child after his first year of life should be one third of the total number of cereals in the diet. For example, 3 ounces of brown rice per 1 ounce of toasted onion will be the right combination.
Vegetable oil give very little. Daily give the child a little miso, tamari, homassi (they all contain salt and should be taken into account in calculations of salt intake by the child).
Neither fish nor meat is needed at all. No fruit. Periodically check the inner surface of the baby's eyelids, it should be pink. If it is white, it is anemic, it has a poor blood composition. You fed him too Yin-food: too much vitamin C, fruit, sugar, etc.
If the child has a protruding abdomen, his intestines do not work well. You gave him food, which forms too many gases (Yin-food, raspiranie). Find the best overall balance.
Intestinal peristalsis is also important. The color of excrement should be pleasant, dark orange or light brown. The smell should also be pleasant. In form they must be long, viscous and float in the water. The urine should be dark brown, transparent.
The child sucking his finger shows us that the chemical balance of his body is broken - iodine and calcium are not enough.
In this case, Wakam, Japanese algae is used. Fry, crumble and sprinkle a small amount on a daily batch of rice. Simultaneously check your understanding of the correct macrobiotic balance. The goal with which you feed him usually does not have anything to do with his own needs for building health. Adjust his overall diet so that he can produce his own iodine and calcium. A medicinal, symptomatic remedy, such as Wakam, is consumed for a short while.
One possible source of parents' anxiety will disappear if they understand that according to the Oriental philosophy hereditary diseases as such do not exist. If the reverse was true, then poverty, disease, ignorance would be given from time immemorial. The condition at the time of birth from any point of view would not be different from the state at the time of death: there would not be the transformation of each element into the most important - the whole person. However, we know that transformations (transmutation) exist. Note that, as is known, there is nothing permanent in this universe. All in a state of constant change (the first goal of the West is stability, guarantee, constancy). Heredity therefore, there is conceit. You can turn your child from a dull, weak creature into an exceptionally healthy and happy person. It all depends on your common sense, understanding and application of Yin-Yang.
The transformation of the elements of the periodic table is relatively easy (as was proved for the first time on June 21). What is very difficult to transform is arrogance in humanity.
For this it is necessary to have one hundredth percent of honesty at heart. We need to know to be independent and free.
Remember, all children are born happy, even those who are born blind, defective or with other shortcomings. In them blissfully throbbing life in infinity, where inability does not matter. There are parents who constantly and strongly worry, seeing the difficulties of their offspring in this relative, unstable world. They suffer their misfortunes on a child who has not even got memory yet (the ability to allocate relative qualities comes much later). The absence of the concept of the structure of the infinite universe and its unchanging law leads to a grim mood of the parents, not the child. This is true justice.
Having concrete evidence, the reality of transformations (transmutations) of elements and the actual existence of biological transmutation in nature, it is logical to go finally to the true goal of Eastern philosophy - the transmutation of man. What is the trap, what to fear? Nothing. To transform yourself into the healthiest person with the deepest understanding of life, you only need to be the greatest researcher.
In conclusion, I ask you to ask yourself the following question: "What kind of adult person do I want to see my child: a doctor, a lawyer, a politician, a rich man or the happiest, healthy, capable human being?". Your answer determines the direction of his upbringing.
Education of individuality is the most important task that anyone can take on, starting from the first day in school or in a kindergarten. It begins at home, long before we begin to purposefully influence our children.
Дети подражатели. Если их родителей интересуют лишь деньги и имущество, они будут подражать этому. У них нет выбора, т. к. в годы формирования их личности они постоянно видят перед собой, пример своих родителей.
Если, однако, вы воспитываете себя в понимании бесконечности истинной цели человека — достижения внутреннего счастья, высшего здоровья, абсолютной справедливости, полноты свободы — этим самым будущее ваших детей обеспечено.
Жизнь со счастливыми, здоровыми, справедливыми родителями — самое ценное воспитание.
Есть столько причин быть счастливым. У нас с вами в изобилии есть воздух, вода и свет, абсолютно необходимые для существования жизни. Они в 1000 раз более драгоценны, чем алмаз в 3—4 сотни карат! У нас есть травы, реки, горы, океаны и небо. Небеса полны галактиками с триллионами солнц. Они наши! Еикир это не отберет от нас Так, своим фактом существования, мы счастливейшие из существ. Все живое также счастливо — бабочки, птицы, рыбы, микробы — они танцуют, забавляются, любят. Если мы несчастны, мы забыли закон бесконечной вселенной.
Если вы счастливы временами, будьте осторожны. Если ваше счастье есть то, что дается другим, одолжено, куплено или украдено (у родителей, друзей или школ), оно не ваше и содержит в себе долг. Без сомнения, такое счастье исчезнет рано или поздно. Счастье должно быть вашим полностью — в независимости развития. Оно должно быть таким, если вы самостоятельно творите для себя. Ваше здоровье, ваша красота, способность мыслить, знания должны быть вашими.
Прежде всего, вы должны быть творцами своего здоровья. Все создания, растения, деревья, летающие существа, микробы, животные, птицы и даже насекомые наслаждаются собственным здоровьем, красотой, свободой и счастьем. Если ваше должно быть дано вам, вы несчастнейший человек в мире. Вы лгун и больше никто! Вы не вы, а некто другой.
Три фактора могут обеспечить удовлетворение не только в отношениях с самим собой и со своими детьми, но во всем в жизни:
а) изучайте философию Востока, применяйте всеобщий принцип Инь-Ян на всех уровнях;
б) практикуйте Макробиотику;
в) делайте много ошибок, т. к. они наш источник познания.
Поскольку все изменяется, нет постоянных заблуждений, ничего не надо бояться.
Мы должны преобразовать наши жизни, наше здоровье, наши взгляды о всех вещах, наши мысли и наши дела.

Главное об уходе за детьми и биохимическое превращение
- Pathology of other neurotransmitter systems and biochemical factors in motor disorders, biochemical markers of hypoxic-ischemic brain damage
AA Solovieva (1994) conducted a study of meth- and leyenkephalin in 36 children with cerebral palsy in the form of spastic diplegia of moderate to severe severity (respectively 16 and 20 patients) aged 7-15 years. It is shown that in the blood of patients with cerebral palsy, grouped according to the severity of the motor defect, the level of both met- and leyenkefalin rises. With a serious degree of disease, the content
- Лечебные мероприятия, применяемые при уходе за больным
Многие элементы при оказании первой помощи применяются при уходе за больным (дача воды и других жидкостей, укрывание больного, очистительные клизмы, прикладывание пузыря со льдом к голове, на живот). Клизмы. Опорожнение толстой кишки путем введения через прямую кишку различных жидкостей с лечебной целью называется клизмой. Различают несколько видов клизм. Чаще всего применяют очистительную
- Превращения молока
С 4—5-го дня после родов в молочных железах начинает вырабатываться переходное молоко, в котором, по сравнению с молозивом, содержится меньше белков, но больше сахара и жира. Со 2—3-й недели после родов переходное молоко превращается в зрелое, представляющее собой эмульсию мельчайших капелек жира, находящихся в сыворотке. Состав его следующий: вода — 87 %, белок — 1,5 %, жир — 4 %, углеводы
- Превращение в красивую маму
Вспомните о том, что малышу и его папе нужна красивая и ухоженная мама. И естественно, это в первую очередь необходимо вам самой! Тот факт, что никак не удается влезть в свои любимые облегающие джинсы, может обернуться для женщины тяжелейшим шоком со всеми вытекающими последствиями: отвращение к зеркалам, тоска и очень плохое настроение. Но не стоит так расстраиваться. Часть нажитого за
- The transformation of military psychology into an independent branch of psychological science
Со средины XIX века произошло становление военной психологии, как самостоятельной отрасли психологических знаний. Область исследования военной психологии – это явления связанные с боем, личностью военнослужащего, групповой воинской деятельностью. Это выражено в том, что: складывается понимание предмета; осуществляется разработка методов военно-психологических исследований; четко выделяются
- ПРАКТИКА УХОДА ЗА ДЕТЬМИ
Руководители, определяющие политику, и медицинские работники должны признать необходимость оказания поддержки тем, кто осуществляет уход за детьми, а также тот факт, что практика ухода и имеющиеся для этого средства представляют собой определяющие факторы оптимального питания и кормления, а следовательно, и здоровья и развития
- Отношения с детьми
Зрелость — время продуктивности во всех сферах жизни. Одна из самых важных задач взрослого человека — вырастить своих детей. Отношения с взрослеющими детьми складываются у родителей по-разному, в зависимости от различных обстоятельств. Одним из наиболее важных, зачастую — решающим становится то, какова эмоциональная база отношения каждого из родителей к ребенку. В психлогии обычно рассматриваются
- Resources for childcare
The resources needed to support the principles and methods of caring for children include human resources, such as knowledge and health, and economic and organizational resources (Box 7) (12). These resources directly affect the practice of care, and therefore, the growth and development of children. They also exert an indirect influence, for example, facilitating access to a sufficient amount of food, using

Биохимические полиморфные системы белков используются для следующих целей: 1) изучения причин и динамики генотипической изменчивости, составляющей основу эволюционной генетики; 2) clarifying the origin of individual animals; 3) описания межпородной и внутрипородной дифференциации, изучения филогенеза и аллелофонда пород, линий и семейств, а также генетических процессов, происходящих в
- The Unicef Initiative for Child Care and Child Nutrition
Factors that directly determine the good nutrition, health and survival of the child are food consumption and food hygiene. However, as Figure 16 shows, a direct influence on the consumption of nutrients and, consequently, on the health of the child is having an action to take care of it. Good nutrition, good health and good care must be provided for good nutrition. An example of
