A new look at the Human body


What our Teeth and Intestines tell us about the Food we should be eating.
A new understanding of the Human Body as seen from an Eastern perspective.

Jnanavator Swami Sri Yoekteswar lived from 1855 to 1936. He is known in the West because of the book “Autobiography of a Yogi” as he is the Master of Paramhansa Yogananda.


The difference between Eastern and Western points of view

Western Medicine has its own way to look at the human body and in general, only treats the symptoms that appear when the body is out of balance meaning ill.

In the book “The Holy Science” written by Jnanavator Swami Sri Yoekteswar we are shown a completely different approach to how we should understand the human body by studying the teeth and the intestines.  This knowledge puts an entirely new light on things which I personally find very interesting and well worth taking into consideration.

A Natural Lifestyle

Do we humans still maintain a natural lifestyle, I think most of us do not anymore. The way how we live is depending on various things like our choice of food, the place where we chose to live and also with what kind of people we surround ourselves with.

We are born with instincts which should save guard us against harm. We have been given the gifts of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste but most of us have lost the capability of using them. To then understand what our natural needs are we are left with observation, experience, and intelligence.

The Question is what is the Natural Food for Men?

To get an answer to this question we should look at the different organs we have been given as are our teeth and the digestive tract. Also what our senses tell us about food, the same way animals are led to their food.

The observation of our Teeth gives important information

Animals which eat meat have corner teeth which are long, smooth and pointed, ideal for getting hold of their prey. Their back molars are also pointed but these do not close upon each other but fit next to each other so to be able to tear the meat.

Plant-eating animals have big front teeth and the corner teeth are flat, the back molars are broad.

Fruit-eating animals have teeth which are similar in length. The corner teeth are not pointed but more rounded and the back molars are completely covered by enamel.

Now animals which eat everything like is the case of bears, the front teeth are the same as from plant eaters, the corner teeth like from meat eaters and the back molars are pointed as well as broad.

When we now compare human teeth to the aforementioned examples we find that our teeth are those of fruit eaters.

Information on our Digestive Tract

When we observe the digestive tract of meat-eating animals we see that it is 3 to 5 times as long as its body, measured from the point where food enters to where it comes out, to say it in a nice way. The stomach has a near ball formed shape.

The animals which eat plants have intestines which measure from 20 to 28 times the length of their body and their stomach has an elongated shape.  Fruit-eating animals have their intestines from 10 up to  20 times longer and their stomach is broader and has a continuation in the Duodenum which serves as a second stomach.

This is exactly the same as with the human digestive tract. Current medical knowledge tells us that the human intestinal tract is between 3 to 5 times the length of the body but here the mistake is being made by measuring from the top of the head to the sole of the feet.




Taking the beforehand in consideration one comes again to the conclusion that humans are fruit eaters.

I find this a very logical interpretation. I have cut out a lot of manmade foods and eat more natural foods including more fruits. I do eat meat and fish sometimes. A lot less than in the past. The fact that our nose and our eyes do not like the smell or sight of a slaughterhouse and that these places are mainly kept out of sight does make one think.

I found this interesting video which also illustrates the difference between the way how the West thinks compared to the East. If we were to appreciate the elements we would be a lot healthier.

Hi Taetske,
I have to bookmark this for reference. As a “fruit eater,” I should try and eat more of it and less of what comes from slaughterhouses. This is a wonderful site and very informative. Thanks for the awesome information!

    Good afternoon Don,

    Nice to see you back again. I was somehow fearing that this post might be a tic difficult for people. I am happy you chose to read it and also comment on it. I am very interested in those things we can do ourselves to keep in harmony, the spiritual, mental and physical part have to be in balance as only like that we will be happy and healthy. What we eat is of utmost importance to keep this balance.

Dear Taetske,

That is really a very interesting article. Thank you very much. Makes you start thinking in a totally different way concerning the food we eat. Would be an interesting book to read.

    Good evening Yasmin,

    Thank you for visiting my website. The book in question is very interesting indeed, but it is translated from English into Dutch which is the language of the book I have. I also find this theory unusual but when you really think about it, it makes sense.

I read an article very similar to this some years back, it made me really think and wonder to the extent that I stopped eating meat or fish or even using why accessories made from an animal. I have been a successful vegetarian for five years now and I feel great!.. This was such an inspiring article and I hope it touches the heart of people and helps them understand and wonder.

Thank you for this inspiring article,

    Good afternoon Solomon,

    Thank you for your visit and leaving a comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF?

    I admire you for the change you made years ago. One can be very healthy living as a vegetarian as long as you take care to get your Vitamin B3. My personal food evolution has not been that drastic, it is more slowly evolving. I do eat meat and fish sometimes but not often. I try to buy bio as then I know the animals are leading a good life and also get natural food. I eat a variety of nuts and seeds also eggs from my happy chicken. 

    We definitely, have to get away from the junk food humans are producing. Eat as close to nature as possible is the best option.

Growing up studying science my entire student life, I always thought that humans are omnivores. I do feel however that modern men are consuming more meat and processed food than what our ancestors used to. Even though our dentition may reveal otherwise, I think it’s challenging to get modern people to eat fruits for most part of their day. Maybe more fruits and vegetable portions on the plate would give us a healthy meal balance.

    Good afternoon Cathy,

    Our trouble started when we tried to improve on nature. Nature provides for most of our needs. We thought it to be a good idea to genetically manipulate, then spray with pesticides, give it polluted water, additives with unpronounceable names, wrap it in plastic, and then put it in the microwave oven. What have we done to ourselves? Our health has not improved, rather the contrary as now there are many ailments that are food related. 

    I live on a farm in the south of Spain and am blessed with the possibility to grow things myself. I realize that I must be very grateful for this as most of the time I know what I eat.

    Thank you for your comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF?

Excellent article that brought to mind not only the comparison of humans teeth to the animals known eating patterns, but also to the Christian Judeo understanding of our basic design as vegetarians  to dwell in the garden. It wasn’t until chapter 6 after the flood that after a year at float the ark rested on dry, but barren land.  That is when we became omnivores.  and I suppose that if I stuck to vegetables I would live longer better.

So your hypothesis about teeth and proposed diets is confirmed in my eyes.

    Good Morning Rod,

    Thank you for your comment on my post. I hope you downloaded your free PDF?

    That is an interesting point you come with. In the garden of Eden people lived in peace and harmony with creation. In nature, they would find all the food they needed without the need of killing and destroying. Our evolution has not been the best.

    If we still want to eat meat sometimes,  then we should take care it is bio meat. At least the animals are living in good conditions eating natural food. Eating more fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds is a good idea. Man-made foods are killing us.

Thank you for this great information well explain it.

After reading this article I came to realize that I don’t know nothing about my body, I think I should start paying attention more of what I eat. I will start eating more fish, vegetables and fruits.

I will bookmark and share your article with friends and family.

    Good Morning,

    I think that is an excellent idea to eat more vegetables and fruits. Eggs of happy chickens and bio meat now and then will not hurt either. Skip the soft drinks and fast food as much as possible and you will feel a lot better.

This article is quite interesting, although it would be really difficult for me to abandon meat for a strict fruits and vegetables only diet. I think the key element in things like this is balance. A healthy portion of everything shouldn’t cause so much harm right? Meats are a good source of protein, I’m sure they would do my body some good work, repairing worn out tissues and the rest.

    Good Morning Zuchii,

    Nice to see you again. Thank you for your comment.

    Each person is different so not all foods have the same effect. Rule of thumb is to try and eat as “clean” as possible. Back to nature as there, we will find all that is needed for our health. In case you want to eat meat now and then it is not a problem but try to buy bio meat. The animal is treated well and given good food so it will not harm you when you eat it.

    Regards, Taetske
