Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D. is a renowned spiritual author, teacher, yogi and a homeopath; So the essence of the Torah teachings in diet is about vegetarianism. And what there is, is a very strong connection between your health and your spirit. The welfare of the soul can only be achieved after attaining the welfare of the body. When the body aches, the soul too is weakened. God’s initial intention was that people should be vegetarian. So make it no mistake. This dietary law is really a unique statement in human spiritual history. Because eating is an act of holiness.
