Now this philosophy goes against everything naturalist are teaching. All naturalist who gurus who teach you to live past 100 tell you that you need to be married and have lots of friends. Was this isolation from men healthy or was it in her genes? Maybe her marriage was so bad, the thought of marrying again was too frightening. She stated, "I didn't want to be dominated by anyone." Her life and her choice.
When asked about her diet she also had a strange philosophy that is not like anything we have heard before. Due to her anemia, her doctor told her to eat raw eggs. So she eats 3 raw eggs a day. That is 1095 eggs a year. The though of chuggling raw eggs may not be appealing and so to try this longevity diet of Emma's I added in one cup of juice and the 3 eggs.
The first day my heart felt sluggish and I wondered if this was good for me or for anyone. The second day tried it with two eggs and a grape juice. Still was not thrilled with the results. The third day I added in 1 to 2 teaspoons of my very strong black seed oil from Saudi Arabia. Walah!!! I felt fantastic. I had more energy than I had in days.
Normally we suggest 2 to 3 eggs per week and so go about this protocol with caution and I might suggest starting with 2 raw eggs a day. Again make sure that you have organic eggs and of the best quality. Living a long life takes more than eggs in my opinion.
For Emma it worked well. Although there is no mention of whatelse she added or did without.
According to Livingthenourishedlife.com, these are a few more good reasons to eat raw egg yolks.
- Fat soluble vitamins are highly concentrated in egg yolks. This is where all the valuable vitamin A, D, E and K are stored.
- The yolk is also where you’re going to find plenty of B vitamins (like the very crucial B6 and B12, which many people are short on), plus minerals like calcium and zinc.
- Egg yolks are rich in cholesterol. And that’s a good thing! Cholesterol is imperative for hormone and neurotransmitter production (i.e. it keeps you feeling good), and is also crucial for the production of vitamin D.
- Yolks contain essential fatty acids like omega-3 DHA. Egg yolks, especially those from pastured chickens, have an excellent omega 3:6 ratio, too. There’s virtually no fat in the white, however.
- Egg yolks are also a great source of lecithin, which is great for your liver, your brain and your skin. Throw out your soy lecithin (it’s basically industrial waste) and get your lecithin from eggs!
