Someone asked me once on a television interview what my definition of true health was- my answer, albeit too simplified for the scientific scholar was, “The absence of disease on all levels – meaning physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual.” I happen to believe that every person can improve their level of health by making better choices.
My number one rule to living a healthier life is to make a daily effort to choose a path toward wellness and away from disease. Choose a journey that brings joy. Be with people you adore, don’t participate in conversations that bring others down, be honest, hold onto the highest of integrity. Share your gifts and talents. Participate in hobbies and activities that enrich your life and the lives of others whenever possible. Allow yourself to be truly loved and allow yourself to love someone completely. Love can be a grand healer.
Do things that feed your spirit…listen to someone who inspires you. Perhaps you might attend a concert, seminar, go dancing, take a tour, go for a bike ride, walk in the woods, travel, meditate, practice yoga…your choice. On top of these things start to learn what it is that really keeps your body in top condition. Once you understand how nature works you will not be ill as often. If you give your body what it needs to do its job, it generally will!
So let’s talk about FOOD HEALING.
This may be surprising to you, but the human body is composed of about 15 main biochemical elements with added trace elements to small to mention. Here is the breakdown:
Iodine, copper, lead, aluminum- trace amounts for a grand total of 100%
The human body is comprised of up to 70% water. Every three or four minutes with the aid of the beating heart, the body’s blood goes through the lungs. The blood stream carries carbonic acid waste to the lungs to be oxidized by the oxygen and exhaled. Oxidation produces heat. By this fact it is possible to burn food in a laboratory to determine the amount of heat or calories it produces.
In chemistry we know that there is an atomic weight and innate wisdom principles within the body that send these chemical compounds to certain structures of our bodies.We have hard teeth, soft colon, tough tendons, malleable fingernails, a red heart, yellow bile, perhaps purple, blue, green in the eyes, blonde, red, or brown hair. Some people have glowing or sparkling eyes, others have eyes that are more dull. All elements have their specific scope of action and characteristics and so do we. We are all human but with unique biochemical makeups that give us variety or what I call “the spice of life!” Life, with all of its intracacies and nuances is surely miraculous.
Let us use Nature’s remedies…our bodies are built from the elements of nature. Disease then most begins in the diet with poor choices, or inadequate food supplies, from there we must consider the mind and emotions of a person.. Sometimes we take too much of one element and it causes an imbalance and other times we take too little and imbalance occurs. This happens physically, mentally and emotionally as well. Too much of a good thing may detract from life.
