"All diseases begin in the gut! The Father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, made this statement more than 2,000 years ago.  The more we learn with our modern scientific tools, the more we realize just how correct Hippocrates was: all diseases do begin in the gut! Science has discovered, that about 90% of all cells and all genetic material of the human body belongs to the gut flora - a mixture of various microbes, which live inside our digestive tract. So, in reality your body is just a shell, a 10%, providing a habitat for this mass of micro-creatures living inside you; and their role in your health and physiology is monumental." (Test any spiritual mentoring.)
 
Soak - http://www.cookingforwell-being.com/Chart.html - "Whole grains are the hardest food for the human body to digest, and all grains contain anti-nutrients that must be neutralized before cooking. Phytic acid can block the absorption of calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc. Enzyme inhibitors can block enzymes. Gluten must be pre-digested, and traditional soaking techniques accomplish this with ease."  (Got flatulence, osteoporosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or digestive disorders?  Then soak.)
