CABALA Juice is designed based on Wholefood Signatures and on the principle that wholefood follows the law of light.
The word signature is a compound word consisting of “sign” and “nature”. A sign is something that suggests the presence or existence of a fact, condition or quality, an informational idea in the form of a symbol. Plant sign language signals to the observer the properties and intelligence contained within that plant for the purposes of healing, cleansing and maintaining. This essence or spirit of a plant is what ancient societies called the Doctrine of Signatures.
This doctrine of plant-based foods divided plants into five flavors or tastes, namely: bitter, sweet, pungent (or spicy), salty and sour. According to the doctrine these five flavors are associated with specific body organs and systems. It was taught as follows: bitter nourishes the heart and small intestines; sweet nourishes the brain, spleen, pancreas and stomach; pungent nourishes the lungs, sinus and large intestine; salt nourishes the kidneys and bladder; and sour nourishes the liver and gall bladder.
These five qualities are said to physically represent the five patterns of energy that form all matter into one of five shapes: the square, the five pointed star, the circle, the spiral and the equidistant cross. All matter animate or inanimate, forms itself into one or more of these five shapes. These five shapes of the five energies that exist in space form the five organs of sense in humans (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste).
CABALA Juice is designed with these principles in mind. For example apples are ‘sweet’ and when cut in half the core is the shape of a ‘pointed star’. Beetroot is ‘pungent’ and has the signatures of the ‘circle’.
