Rating the LifeForce Energy in Our Food

By Dr. Brian Clement   |  13Comments|

Over the past few decades, we at Hippocrates Health Institute have conducted research into the electrical frequency of our food and the effect that electrical charge has on the frequency of healthy cells. In conjunction with the photographic research conducted at UCLA in the mid-seventies, which measured the relative energy level in different foods, we have created a list of foods from highest to lowest in energy content.

Why are wheatgrass, edible weeds, and tropical fruits at the top of the list? Because they have the most sunlight, or lifeforce energy, in them. In this system, we recognize that all life on the planet comes from the sun. It is collected by plants in the form of ultraviolet rays, which are energy. The ratings of the listed foods are based on the radiance they contain and emit. Higher levels of food have greater radiance because their cells are capable of capturing and maintaining greater amounts of ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Five-star food (*****) indicate those with the greatest nutritional and electrical frequency available; fewer stars indicate diminished potencies and vitality. Nutritional quality and quantity are created within each plant and are determined by the amount of sun energy contained within the cell structure of the plant.

Please note that even at the lowest levels, cooked food is not mentioned because none of it registers any measurable frequency. Our research shows that cooked vegetables neither contain nor emit energy. Although dairy foods and meat do not contain radiance, both do absorb energy form the body when they are consumed. While cooked food does not contribute energy to your body, dairy and meat are even worse: they deplete your energy reserves.

The lesson to be learned from these observations is basic common sense. Those who consume the least amount of meat have the fewest incidences of man-made disease and illness, while those who consume the highest amount of meat have the most health problems. Those who consume absolutely no animal products have the fewest diseases and health problems.

Argentinians, Australians, Northern Europeans, and North Americans—the heaviest consumers of animal-based food—are also the sickest based on World Health Organization statistics on cancer, heart disease, and other maladies of the industrialized world. Ironically, these people are also among the most economically prosperous. Sadly, many of those who are neither prosperous nor carnivorous suffer at the other end of the dietary spectrum as the victims of malnutrition and starvation. As with all areas of life, what is needed is balance: Those with the means must improve their diets; those without the means must be accommodated with health-promoting food.

Using the star-rating system, you can determine what level of energy you would like to achieve. At times, one-star foods are acceptable even for people in the platinum range. The lower energy content of sprouted grain and bean preparations decelerates the metabolism, allowing for healthy weight gain in those who do no resistance exercise. People who are in the bronze or copper realms can use the four- and five-star foods to increase stamina and clarity.

Do not limit yourself or try to maintain unrealistic goals. After reading this information, many robust dreamers will say they want to live exclusively on five-star foods and remain permanently on the platinum platform. When they fail to achieve this objective, they may relinquish their hopes and sabotage their own dreams. Refined emotions, a positive self-image, constructive experience, and common sense should govern your choices.

If you never fail to do your best, you will progress securely and eventually live in a comfort zone that fits you and your life at that time. However, just because the given level is comfortable, do not get so complacent with it that you fail to constantly try to achieve higher levels of functioning or remain at the highest level once you have reached it. If you are already at the highest level, reside there with the highest level of dignity as well.

  1. Thank you! This is one of the most interesting articles I’ve read on CSL and very useful information.

    In the last paragraph you mention that people recovering from the listed disorders should avoid ALL fruit. Would you mind explaining why? Does this also apply to the five-star energy fruit? Are there any exceptions?

  2. wow. cool. I can actually feel the energy in my cells kinda eating superfoods.

  3. This is definitely a great article! I find that organic foods and energetic food can be a bit pricey at times but at the end of the day it feels great knowing that I’m creating a healthier by eating a super foods.

  4. Very interesting post. I really enjoyed this. Thanks.

  5. this is a great article! thanks for sharing. definitely going to pass it along.

    Thanks. This is an interesting perspective. I like the element of “science” brought to the explanation of Life Force!

  7. This is super info, now to figure the best ways to find and eat these foods!

  8. brilliant so useful thank you!

  9. >>One-Star Foods..
    >>pumpkin seeds
    >>Five-Star Foods..

    Really, now? Heh.

    The fruit issue – as it pertains to illness – continues to be extremely controversial. The issue is based in the fact that sugars feed cancer cells. However, fruit also contains many nutritional elements. Thus, it has been hypothesized that the sugars in the fruits “open up” the cancer cells, which are then bombarded with vitamins and minerals. This would certainly be a different scenario than one in which a candy bar, for example, were consumed. Note: I’m not a doctor, just someone who follows these kinds of arguments in the raw food community.

  11. Thank you.. I really enjoyed this article.. Health & Blessings <3

  12. Hi Dr. Clement! Where do greens (kale, spinach, bok choy, etc) fall on this list?

  13. This is awesome info.
