The Importance of Clean Air!!! Article, by Matt Monarch

I didn’t realize the importance of air quality until I went on a 100% Raw Food Diet and I began to become more and more sensitive to air pollution. Then I read what was to become one of my favorite Raw Food/Breatharian books called ‘Man’s Higher Consciousness
‘, by Hilton Hotema. I feel that this book should be MANDATORY reading for EVERYONE!!!… and in my opinion, it will teach you the absolute truth about how Modern Man is the ‘degenerate descendant’ of the Breatharian and how all disease can be seen as an adaptation to toxicity. Additionally, you will learn more around the issues of immunity and sensitivities.
From what I remember, Hilton Hotema states that when an infant breathes in poisoned polluted air, they become ailed with a runny nose from the pollution; this could be thought of as an early warning sign. Usually, however, this bodily reaction continues and is eventually simply ‘silenced’, as the body accommodates and adapts to the air pollution. This was just one example stated in this book and it opened my mind to the truth about the absolute importance of clean air. Soon after reading that book, I experienced the cleanest air that I have ever found in the US. Immediately, my third eye started to vibrate and I felt totally ENERGIZED. I felt like I was on a drug trip, as HIGH as can be! I knew from that day forward, that someday I was going to settle in one of the areas of the world with PRISTINE air quality – this was a clear priority for me.
TEN YEARS later, that day seems to have finally come. Angela and I just moved to Vilcabamba, Ecuador where the air quality feels unparalleled. In just one short week the benefits that I have been experiencing are miraculous. Wrinkles have been disappearing from my face. I used to have black heads in my skin but in this pristine air, they seem to be nonexistent. I used to wake up with a runny nose every morning out in the US. I thought that this was maybe due to too much fat in my raw diet. However, I now believe it was mainly the detoxification of poisons from the air, on an ongoing basis. If you watch our most recent episodes from our TV Show, you may notice how good our skin seems to look and how much healthier we look in general here.
It is AMAZING to me, as I sit here typing at my computer and breathe in PRISTINE air. I feel that being enveloped in this kind of air is the way we were MEANT to live and it makes me want to cry in happinesss. Adapting here is definitely a process. With just the smallest amount of exercise, my heart rate rapidly increases as I HUFF and PUFF, in just a short period of time. I feel like we are in a completely different atmosphere, like outer-space or something. I feel that the “becoming younger” benefits will be ongoing for many years on end now, JUST BY LIVING HERE!!!
The air up here contains more minerals to sustain the body, there is less carbon dioxide and more oxygen and ozone. Additionally, the top soil is not emiting off odors of acid decay. I feel that out here, if a person is eliminating the excess toxins from the body appropriately, it would be almost impossible to run into a deficiency. Experiments consistently show, without exception, that elimination is much more important than feeding. Many people refuse to recognize this fact, especially because when living in a polluted environment, deficiencies are more common. When I say that I feel a person will not run into a deficiency out here if they keep up with the elimination, this is not in regards to the food being so mineral- and vitamin-rich, but rather I’m referring to the mineral-rich quality of the air here. In future Newsletters, I feel that my articles are going to focus more on air quality and I will also provide scientific research that backs up some of the ideas presented here.
There are definite precautions that a person would do well to follow if consuming a ‘clean’ diet and living in this type of pristine environment.
To illustrate this hypothesis, Hilton Hotema offers the perfect example in his book, “Man’s Higher Consciousness”. In a clinical experiment, a group of scientists put Bird-A in a glass cage with no air outlets. Breath by breath, the bird exhaled CO2, and the air in the cage became increasingly more toxic. Because the process happened gradually, the bird was able to adapt to the CO2-rich environment. Bird-A was then removed from the glass cage. Bird-B was placed in the same CO2-rich environment. Bird-B died in moments from shock. Bird-B had no time to adapt like Bird-A, and the sudden extreme toxicity made it impossible to sustain life.
Most urban areas within the US are like the CO2 enriched bird cage, while places like the Himalayas or Vilcabamba might represent the outside of the bird cage. The longer a person stays in a pristine environment, the ‘cleaner’ they become at a cellular level, the more sensitive they become, and the more damaging polluted enviroments become for them. I was in NYC just three months ago. The pollution did effect me, however, if I were to live out here in Vilcabamba for a decade and then go back to NYC, I sense that the effects could be devastatingly harsh for my body.
In my mind, the positives outweighs any of the potential ‘sensitivity’ risks involved when adhering to a clean lifestyle like this. I hope that this opens your mind to the importance of air quality and that perhaps you too take this into more consideration. Again, in future articles, I intend to go deeper into these concepts.
