I was talking to a facebook friend: Pamela Johnson you know who you are. I always respect your openminded opinions about the universe in which we live. Within this visit we talked about the bodily functions through harmonious balance and integrative functions. With Pamela’s suggestion, that I should include… a blog post that’s about good health depending on three inter – connected factors providing information to heal within.
1. The body’s structural systems: including the muscles, bones, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels and the fuctioning organs…
2. The body’s biochemical processes: involving absorption, utilization of nutrients and elimination of waste…
3. The body’s conscious state: that comprises your mental, emotional and spiritual dimension that’s deep within…
When your in a state of good health, a cut, bruise or bone heals quite rapidly without complication or infection. If your exposed to infection our immune system deals with it. The body has a natural tendency to seek good health while healing and repairing itself. Symptoms of other more major illness are met for us to recognise something just isn’t right and to do something about it.
Treating these symptoms sometimes with drugs will exacerbate the situation making matters worse. While covering up the problem doesn’t make it right… it’s only when we find the real reason we can change it to create good health. Even very serious diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes can be completely healed.
When a person is willing to take resposibility for their health and practice the good lifestyle habits that will support the body to be able to heal itself. With one of the most important habits being taking in optimum nutrition. Your body was created to heal itself and nutrition is the underlining support system to carry out these mission.
When you get a steady diet of super charged enzymes, vitamins and minerals your body craves to do it’s healing and regenerating work. Cooking for the most part destroys the enzymes and compromises the vitamins and minerals your body needs to heal. The foods and liquid we consume, along with air we breathe having a fundamental effect on our well being should be recognised.
A healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Along with sea vegetables can supply us with all the essential nutrients our bodies require for optimum efficiency, energy and freedom from disease. Some merit can be given to acupuncture, massage, feng shui, Qi gong, exercise and meditation which keeps the lympathic system in check. However when we follow Hippocrates suggestion, to let food be are medicine and medicine be our food. This allows us to invest in a healthy future and prevent chronic disease.
Chronic Stress also takes it’s toll on your health and well being, for as when your stressed breathing becomes more shallow and rapid. The key is to be in tune with how you react to difficult situations and not over use your body’s fight or flight response. Even imagining the act of slowly inhaling and exhaling is enough to help most people feel calmer.
Nearly one – third of Americans report stress and 40 percent having experienced work related illness caused by stress. Physical activity provides and ideal outlet for getting rid of negativity that would other wise turn inward. Reactions to stress vary, therefore, those that get agitated or angry should consider a more intense from of activity.
While research indicates exercise changes the body chemistry and won’t allow the stress to turn inward. Another great therapy is also pin pointing the stressors, by writing your thoughts in a journal while making those events clearer…. forcing you to think logical instead of emotionally. Hypoxic stress or oxidative stress can also affect your hyaluronan levels in your body increasing your risk for cancer.
Crocodiles in the swamp or mole rats under ground not gaining any types infections or cancers, because of their high levels of hyaluronan, therefore, scientist believe that inconsistent levels increase your risk for cancer and other auto immune diseases. While auto immune disease affects 50 million Americans the immune system is an amazing network of cells, molecules and organs working 24 hours @ 365 days a year.
Sometimes this magnificent system malfunctions and makes mistakes while attacking the cells meant to protect it. Which leads to a variety of auto immune disease (80 to 100 known types) with celiac disease, lupus, Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and sjogrens’s syndrome and graves & Hashimoto’s disease amongst the more popular.
