Separate nutrition

From the History

From ancient times, the controversy continues about how and what it is necessary to eat. The doctors of Babylon, Ancient Egypt, and Greece dispute this theme. There was a whole system in the medieval ages for separate nutrition as a diet, day-by-day. Tommaso Campanella in his Town of the Sun, dedicated to future urban inhabitants, wrote:” The first day they eat meet, the second, it is fish, the third, vegetables, and then they return to meet, of cause not to be aggravated and not to get exhausted.

Dr. Herbert M.Shelton

In Ukraine, the interest in separate nutrition is connected with the works of the American doctor Herbert M. Shelton. The core of his diet is in the inadmissibility of the simultaneous entrance into the stomach, and then into intestines of the food requiring the different conditions for digestion. It says that is not permitted to use a starchy and protein food at the same time. From his point of view, a patty with fish or buckwheat porridge with a cutlet is categorically improper dishes because products in it are incompatible. Meanwhile, he never makes researches the results of which could confirm his conclusions, but referring to the works of the Russian physiologist I.P.Pavlov. Pavlov, himself, wasn’t making similar conclusions. He indicated that the digested system had been reasonably complex.

The organism receives less the important nutrients, that, no doubt, will influence on the immune and nervous system. This is a real two-week stress!
