As hygiene, natural food is a safe means to avoid getting sick, because, depending on all the organic functions of the quality of the blood and, being this a product of general nutrition and especially of digestion , adequate foods produce pure blood with tissues and organs. healthy, at the same time that the inadequate feeding de-purifies the blood and alters the organic functions. Through trophology, trophologists say they know in what order to eat in the different daily intakes, how to mix food and which of its characteristics can be used as preventive medicine factors.

A little history

Carnivorous animals do not consume starchy products with their meat, but they do supplement digestion and sometimes purge their insides by chewing wild herbs that have medicinal properties. It has also been seen by bird watchers for centuries that birds eat insects and worms at one time of day and seeds and berries at another, but never both at the same time. What makes modern man think that his digestive tract is so different from all other species in nature? Despite the fact that the traditional Chinese diet is mainly based on rice, a closer look at Chinese eating habits shows that, until the middle of the 20th century, rice had been consumed according to the rules of trophology. For example, when Chinese families eat at home, Meals are usually abundant in fresh vegetables and soy products and very light in meat. When the Chinese are having a big banquet in a restaurant, rice is usually not served at all, specifically so that it does not interfere with the enjoyment and digestion of meat, fish and poultry that always appear on banquet menus . Today, however, modern lifestyles have eroded these healthy eating habits among urban Chinese, to the great detriment of their health and longevity. In the 1920s, before the modern world had a major impact on the lifestyles of specifically so that it does not interfere with the enjoyment and digestion of meat, fish and poultry that always appear on banquet menus. Today, however, modern lifestyles have eroded these healthy eating habits among urban Chinese, to the great detriment of their health and longevity. In the 1920s, before the modern world had a major impact on the lifestyles of specifically so that it does not interfere with the enjoyment and digestion of meat, fish and poultry that always appear on banquet menus. Today, however, modern lifestyles have eroded these healthy eating habits among urban Chinese, to the great detriment of their health and longevity. In the 1920s, before the modern world had a major impact on the lifestyles ofChina, an extensive study was carried out in that country by western nutritional experts to compare the typical eating habits of the Chinese and the Americans. The study revealed that the average Chinese obtained more than 90% of their dietary energy from grains and grain products, with only 1% from animal products and the rest from fresh vegetable sources. A mixture of 90% carbohydrates and 1% protein, supplemented with the enzymes and fibers of fresh fruits and vegetables is the closest thing to a perfectly combined diet. In the same study, he turned to the eating habits of typical Americans, with more revealing results: 39% of Americans’ dietary energy came from grains, 38% of animal products and most of the remaining 23% came from refined sugars. Vegetables and fruits represented a tiny portion of the American diet. It is difficult to make a more unbalanced diet from the point of view of trophology. It is an established scientific fact in Western medicine, it is that in order to start the efficient digestion of any concentrated animal protein, the stomach must secrete pepsin. But it is also a well-known fact that pepsin can only function in a highly acidic medium, which must be maintained for several hours for complete protein digestion. It is also a well-established fact of science that when you chew a piece of bread, potato, or any other carbohydrate / starch, Alkaline juices are immediately secreted into food by saliva in the mouth. When swallowed, alkalized starches require an alkaline medium in the stomach in order to complete their digestion. Anyone should be able to find out what happens when you eat protein and starches together. Acid and alkali juices are secreted at the same time in response to protein and incoming starch, which quickly neutralize each other and leave a weak, watery solution in the stomach that does not digest protein or starch properly. Instead, proteins rot and starches ferment due to the constant presence of bacteria in the digestive tract. This fermentation is the main cause of all kinds of digestive problems, including gas, heartburn, cramps, bloating, constipation, hemorrhage, hemorrhoids, colitis, etc. Many of the so-called “allergies” are also the direct result of inappropriate food combinations: the blood picks up toxins from putrefaction and the fermented load as it slowly passes through the intestines and these toxins in turn cause rashes, hives, headaches, nausea and other symptoms commonly classified as “allergies”. The same foods that cause allergic reactions when poorly combined often have no bad side effects at all when consumed according to the rules of trophology. The bottom line is: When the stomach is immobilized and digestive functions are affected by consuming foods with indiscriminate combinations, bacteria in the digestive tract are celebrating.

Bad combinations

Starch and sugar

It has been established that when sugar enters the mouth along with starch, the saliva secreted during chewing does not contain ptyaline, thereby sabotaging the digestion of the starch before it reaches the stomach. On the other hand, such a combination blocks the passage of sugar through the stomach until the starch is digested, causing it to ferment. The by-products of sugar fermentation are acids, which in turn further inhibit the digestion of starches, which require alkaline media for digestion. Bread (starch) and butter (fat) is a perfectly compatible combination, but when you put a tablespoon of honey or jam on it, you introduce sugars into the mix, which interferes with the digestion of the starch in the bread. The same principle applies to cereals sprinkled with sugar, cakes with meringues, sweet cakes etc. The Right Thing: Eat starches and sugars separately.


Melons are a perfect food for humans because they do not require any type of digestion in the stomach. Instead, they quickly pass through the stomach to the small intestine for digestion and assimilation. But this can only happen when the stomach is empty and the melons are eaten alone, or in combination with only other fresh raw fruits. When consumed with or after other foods that require complex digestion in the stomach, melons cannot pass into the small intestine until digestion of the other foods in the stomach is complete. So these settle and stagnate, fermenting quickly and causing all kinds of gastric problems. The Right Thing: Eat melon alone or not eat it.

Proteins and starch

This is the worst possible combination of foods to mix together into one meal and yet it is the mainstay of modern Western diets: meat and potatoes, hamburgers and fries, eggs and toast, etc. When one consumes protein and starch together, the alkaline enzyme ptyaline is poured into the food when it is chewed in the mouth. When the chewed food reaches the stomach, the digestion of the starch by alkaline enzymes continues unabated, thereby preventing digestion of the protein by pepsin and other acidic secretions. Thus bacteria always present in the stomach are allowed to fix the protein and the putrefaction that begins, rendering the nutrients in the protein largely useless to you and producing toxic waste and harmful gases, including poisons such as indole, eschatol, phenol, hydrogen sulfide, phenylpropionic acid and others. If that’s the case, we might ask ourselves, then, why doesn’t the stomach have trouble handling foods that naturally contain protein and starch, like whole grains? This is because there is a great difference between the digestion of a food, no matter how complex its composition, and the digestion of a mixture of different foods. For a single food item that is a starch-protein combination, the body can easily adjust to its juices, both in strength and time, and the digestive requirements of the food. But when two foods that have different and opposite needs are eaten, this fine-tuning of juices and requirements becomes impossible. The Right Thing: Eating concentrated proteins like meat, fish,

Desserts, cakes, cookies, pastries

Any type of sweet dessert should be avoided after a meal, because this type of food combines poorly with everything. Even fresh fruit should be avoided after a big meal, as it will be stored in the stomach and fermented rather than digested. If there really is a taste for something sweet and you crave cakes, tarts and cookies, it’s good to satisfy that habit every now and then by making them a meal or snack, at least on their own they won’t cause as much gastric trouble and toxic by-products as when taken after meals. ” The Right Thing: Avoid sweet, starch-rich desserts, as well as fruits, after big meals of protein or carbohydrates.

Protein and protein

Different proteins have different digestive requirements. For example, the strongest enzyme action in milk occurs during the last hour of digestion, while in meat it occurs during the first hour and in eggs somewhere in between. It is good to remember the ancient dietary law that Moses imposed on his people [the Jewish people], prohibiting the simultaneous consumption of milk and meat. Two similar meats, such as beef and lamb, or two types of fish, such as salmon and shrimp, are not different enough in nature to cause digestive conflict in the stomach and can be consumed together. Avoid combinations like meat and eggs, meat and milk, fish and cheese. Ensures the assimilation of the full range of vital amino acids by varying the types of concentrated proteins taken in different foods. The Right Thing: Eat only one important type of protein in one meal.

Acid and starch

Any acid taken in conjunction with a starch suspends the secretion of ptyaline, a biochemical fact of life on which all doctors agree. Therefore, if you eat oranges, lemons, and other acidic or acidic fruits such as vinegar, along with starch, nothing of ptyaline is secreted in the mouth to start the first stage of digestion. Consequently, starch hits the stomach without the vital alkaline juices it needs to be properly digested, allowing bacteria to ferment instead. A single teaspoon of vinegar, or its equivalent in other acids, is all that is needed to stop salivary digestion of starch in the mouth. For example, if you eat toast or breakfast cereal (starches), you should not drink orange juice (acidic) and eggs (concentrated protein). If you eat a meal based on starch from noodles or rice, you should avoid vinegar, as well as concentrated proteins (meat, chicken). The Right Thing: Eat acids and starches in separate meals.

Acid and protein

Since protein requires an acidic medium for proper digestion, you might think that acidic foods would facilitate protein digestion, but that’s not the case. When acidic foods enter the stomach they inhibit the secretion of hydrochloric acid and pepsin, an enzyme that digests proteins can only work in the presence of hydrochloric acid, not with any acid. Therefore, orange juice inhibits proper digestion of eggs and a strong vinegar dressing in salads inhibits digestion of meat. The Right Thing: Avoid combining protein and concentrated acids in the same meal.

Milk and dairy

This is one of the most controversial and misunderstood issues in the Western diet. Orientals and Africans have traditionally avoided milk, except as a purgative. But in the western world, people are encouraged to drink milk every day of their lives. If we look at nature, we see that newborns feed exclusively on milk until weaning with other foods. The natural disappearance of the enzyme lactase to digest milk from the human system upon reaching maturity demonstrates that adult humans have no more nutritional need for milk than tigers or adult chimpanzees. Although milk is a complete protein food when eaten raw, it also contains fat, which means it combines poorly with any other food except itself. However, Adults today routinely eat other foods with cold milk. Milk curdles immediately after entering the stomach, so if other foods are present the curd coagulates around the other food particles and isolates them from exposure to gastric juices, delaying digestion long enough to allow the start of putrefaction. Therefore, the first and most important rule of milk consumption is: ‘Drink it alone, separate from meals. which delays digestion long enough to allow the onset of putrefaction. Therefore, the first and most important rule of milk consumption is: ‘Drink it alone, separate from meals. which delays digestion long enough to allow the onset of putrefaction. Therefore, the first and most important rule of milk consumption is: ‘Drink it alone, separate from meals.

Bananas and milk

This combination is considered one of the heaviest and most toxin-forming. It is said to create heaviness in the body and weaken the mind. If you like cow’s milk banana smoothies, make sure the banana is very ripe and add cardamom and nutmeg to stimulate digestion.

Fruits with meals

It has long been known that fruit does not mix well with other foods. The reason is that the fruit contains simple sugars that do not require digestion. Therefore, they do not remain in the stomach for long. Other foods, such as foods high in fat, protein, and starch, will stay in the stomach for a longer period of time, as they require more digestion. So if you eat fruit after a meal, the sugar in the fruit will stay in the stomach for a long time and ferment.

Cheese or lasagna sandwiches

Starch and protein combinations inhibit salivary digestion of starch. This is because proteins and starches require different enzymes and different levels of acidity to be digested. When starch and protein are eaten together, the body is forced to make a decision to digest protein, but not starches. Undigested starchy foods undergo fermentation and decomposition resulting in toxic end products.

Tomato sauce and cheese

Tomatoes are considered acidic and it is not recommended to mix them with starchy carbohydrates such as pasta. Food combination theory recommends avoiding mixing carbohydrates with acids. Adding dairy products to this already difficult combo becomes a recipe for digestive problems and fatigue after meals, as your body is going to require a lot of energy to digest this meal.

Cereal with milk and orange juice

The acids in orange juice or any acidic fruit destroy the enzyme that is responsible for the digestion of starches present in the cereal. Also, acidic fruits or juices can curdle milk and turn it into a heavy mucous substance.

Lemon dressing in Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Potatoes, chili peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes are not supposed to combine with cucumbers. While lemon doesn’t go well with any of these.

Beans and cheese

Milk protein and beans is a common combination in any Mexican restaurant. Generally accompanied by a generous portion of guacamole and salsa, it is almost certain that there will be gas and bloating. It is not just the beans themselves that cause this, but the whole combination. Try to avoid cheese and tomatoes if you have a weak digestion is best.

Fruits with yogurt

Combining dairy with acidic fruits changes the intestinal flora, produces toxins, and causes nasal congestion, colds, coughs, and allergies. It is recommended to avoid congesting foods such as cold yogurt mixed with fruit. However, there are ways to make digestion lighter. First, you should choose a plain yogurt at room temperature and add a little honey, cinnamon, and raisins instead of sour fruits.
