Electrical Nutrition - A Revolutionary Approach to Eating That Awakens the Body's Natural Electrical Energy by Denie Hiestand, Shelley Heinstand, Shelley Hiestand, John Gray

Electrical Nutrition by Denie Hiestand, Shelley Heinstand, Shelley Hiestand, John Gray


by Dr. Stephen Vizzard, PHD., P.S.

With respect to the concept of living life to its energetic fullest, there are so many aspects to discuss that it is sometimes difficult to decide which topic to zero in on. The decision regarding this essay has been made easier by the recent release of the book, “Electrical Nutrition”, authored by Denie and Shelley Hiestand. I have known and worked with Denie and Shelley for close to seven years now. I have learned very much from them regarding the topic of energy. While I have not agreed with every aspect of their philosophical orientation, I do greatly embrace much of what they have to say regarding energetic transfers and, especially, regarding the impact of nutrition on one's ability to function in the higher octaves of energy. Or, put in other words, to be more spiritual and/or vibrate at a much more elevated rate. I invite you to check out this book which, for several years, has lingered in the realms of self-publishing, but is now being supported and released by Penguin-Putnam. Denie speaks to much more than just nutrition. He challenges many of the aspects of how we have done business that have contributed to our being one of the most unhealthy and obese nations in the world, even when we are compared to so-called third-world nations.

Einstein is reported to have said that one of the reasons that people do not use more than 10% of their brains is that we have not figured out how to vibrate at a high enough rate to bring that other 90% of our brain into action. The same can be said for our ability to enter into the realm of spiritual magic, of bringing life and vitality into every aspect of our functioning. Everything that we do that works against our energetic vibrational rate impacts on this. That certainly includes the negative energetic interactions that we sometimes get caught up in with others.

Many experts, Denie and Shelley among them, have come to claim that it is toxic to combine carbohydrates and protein in the same meal. Simply stated, our stomach is a “rotting tank” that cannot rot these two types of nutrition at the same time. Unfortunately, we have been taught by society that we need to eat “three squares” of meat, vegetables and potatoes. After eating such meals, especially during the Holiday season, we lie around and groan while our bodies try to cope with the onslaught of too much food, carbohydrates and protein combined, and even sugar. These meals are “rib stickers” simply because our bodies need so much time to process them. Such combinations rob us of energy, make us very sleepy and, over the course of time, contribute to the breakdown of both the body and the psyche.

Also on the list of problematic eating are the following:

  1. Sugar, in all but its most natural forms, is toxic.

  2. In America, we consume far too much grain (a carbohydrate), often in combination with sugar (cookies, muffins and even bread) or protein (sandwiches). Grain has a very tiny amount of protein inside its very hard shell. Our bodies need to ferment (or rot) this to extract that which it really needs, the protein. Try leaving grain out on the ground and see how quickly it rots. If it ever does.

  3. We have far to many preservative in our food. Every step away from nature, every way that food is processed or reprocessed, makes it more alien to our bodies and therefore toxic. If our stomach is a rotting tank, then why would we wish to put into our bodies food that has in it agents (preservatives) that are designed to keep the food from rotting? This is perhaps the best argument I have heard against the use of preservatives, which have become far too common in our culture, which exist for the convenience of the food manufacturers and distributors, and which are highly toxic for our bodies.

  4. Vegetarianism, per se, is not a bad thing. But it is extremely difficult to get good and inexpensive sources of protein when one eats vegetarian. Moreover, vegetarians tend to rely too heavily on grain. Over time, lacking in protein, vegetarians lose energy and even become ill. The last thing that they blame, when this happens, is that wonderful vegetarian diet that initially made them feel so good. Never mind the more likely cause for that initial burst of health: they also cleaned up many other aspects of their eating (eating organic, shunning junk food and preservatives) when they became a vegetarian.

I have lived by this philosophy long enough that I can tell a difference in how I function when I switch from being diligent about my diet to being careless. As I write this, I am on an extended vacation in Europe, visiting family. While I'm on vacation, I throw out the rulebook, eating foods in combination, consuming sugar and drinking alcohol. My daily exercise regimen gets reduced to walking, which is a fact of life in Europe. Thank God for that as I watch my weight go up, my clothes get tighter and my energy plummet. I am spared some of the results of such misbehavior by the fact that Europeans put far fewer preservatives in their food and have a totally different relationship with food and mealtime. Much of this is potentially the subject of another article.

Beyond my personal experience, I can say with solid certainty that patients who have incorporated this type of diet into their lifestyle have been able to heal perplexing physical problems and also function much more effectively with respect to their emotions. Our hormonal system impacts our emotions. Eating the wrong foods (wheat, most grains, combinations of carbohydrates and protein, sugar or strict vegetarian) greatly impacts on, and impairs, our hormonal system. Stress, and negative energetic interactions with others, adds to the whacking out of the hormonal system such that you end up getting, in Denie's words, “the wrong hormone, at the wrong time, in the wrong dose, and for the wrong reason”. When this occurs, you are technically “whacko”. Sometimes the fix for emotional struggles is a shift in diet and not intensive psychotherapy.

No matter how well we eat, it is still difficult to get proper nutrition into our system. Many high-tech and powerful supplements have come onto the market in the last years. These supplements are not the sort that gets sloughed off by the body (in the form of “expensive pee”) because they do not get recognized as a part of what the body requires. They are “electrically tuned” for the body so that the body will absorb them into the “electrical matrix©” (a term coined and copyrighted by Denie Hiestand) that is a major source for producing the higher vibrational rate that we all seek. These supplements are more fully discussed in the book “Electrical Nutrition”.

So, give solid thought to how you eat. Start to pay attention to how you feel after a meal of carbohydrates and protein versus a meal where you eat one or the other in combination with vegetables and/or salad. Do not be fooled by your body when it craves things that are bad for it or and that adjusts to assaults on its fortitude by labeling the negative responses (such as deep fatigue after a heavy meal) as “normal”. Most of all, take the steps to move beyond such disastrous definitions of “normal”, into a higher vibrational rate!
