In this week’s video we talked about the relationship we have with our body. I think oftentimes even when it comes to relationships we have with other individuals, we believe that because we are around them or spend time with them, that we know them. The reality is that you can be that close to someone and still be out of touch. It’s my belief that we can come across this same issue when it comes to having a proper relationship with our own bodies. Now a lot of it isn’t our fault, there’s a lot of really smart people who have figured out how to disrupt the natural flow of things in this world. From very early on we are taught that when we get sick, we go to the doctor, we don’t feel good, we take Tylenol, if you have a cough, take cough syrup. These seemingly harmless and even seemingly beneficial teachings are what has slowly caused the disconnect between our mind and body.
If you ever observe animals in nature, you will see that they have not been brainwashed like we have. They still know how to listen to their bodies. Name me one wild animal that needs its blood pressure regulated? Don’t worry, I’ll wait LOL. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a non-domesticated animal that is not in captivity that has any of the issues that we have as human beings (outside of the issues caused by air pollution). If an animal gets sick, it knows not to stuff its belly, you’ll even find some animals that don’t typically eat grass, will consume grass while sick. Now, I don’t know exactly why they do this, but I have a feeling it’s kind of like taking herbs, it helps flush their system out. Even the domesticated animals, you will tend to see that they still have some remnants of the connection between mind and body. We would do well to learn from them.
As we now know, food is the cause of a large amount of our disease. But the disease of the mind is also caused by the toxicity of our food. We walk around with undiagnosed diseases all the time, this disconnect that everyone seems to have between mind and body is definitely a disease caused by the neurotoxins and brainwashing we endure starting from childhood. Understanding that it is a disease gives us the power to change it, it’s not something that is natural for us. Just like with any other disease, the key is to empower the body’s natural eliminatory organs, so that they can start to process out the toxins and create that mind-body relationship again.
I personally have become more and more in tune with my body and it’s crazy, because the more clean I become, the more quickly my body reacts to things. For example, I love toasted pecans, now I’ve always known that they aren’t good for me, so I eat them in moderation. Before, I could get away with eating them and I never really felt bad physically, but now I’ll eat them and almost instantly my stomach starts rumbling or they give me gas, indicating that there’s something wrong with what I’m consuming.
We need to be cognizant of the signals our body sends us. Anything that causes gas, we shouldn’t be putting in our mouth. Things that cause heartburn, we shouldn’t be putting it in our mouth. Now conversely, when we are detoxing, we experience similar reactions to when the toxins were going into our body. It’s extremely important not to confuse the two. When you are actively detoxing, it’s to be expected that you will have detox symptoms. But one thing I’ve noticed, is that just by changing my diet, drinking more water and getting more sunlight, I experience detox symptoms. So understanding what triggers the body to detox is vital.
Well, I’m going to go ahead and wrap this one up, everyone. As always, feel free to comment or ask more questions if you need clarification.
