Ital Spiritual Health
Connection of health and spirituality
In these strange times consider improving your health by eating Ital food. Ital food is the diet of the Rastafari movement of Jamaica, principally based a vegetarian diet intending to improve health and energy. It is thought that being vegetarian is to be closer to the universal energy and life force and to avoid bringing death to God’s creatures.
The name Ital is derived from the English word vital. This achieves double significance by beginning with ‘I,’ which has particular significance to Rastafari as an expression (I and I) of unity with all things and by capturing the essence of the diet, which is vitality, energy, life force. Rastafarians refer to the universal energy as livity and thus Ital is intended to increase livity, thereby imbuing the diet with a spiritual significance.
