There is lots of buzz about cancer lately. Heck, there has been a lot of buzz about LOTS of illnesses lately. At what point do you stop and think, wow, WHY are people getting SO sick? WHY, with all of the medical intervention we have, is our country rated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as 72nd in chronic disease. Can you even name 72 other countries?!  The US spends in excess of $7,290 per person on healthcare. Britain, who scores healthier than Americans in EVERY major health category, spends $2,2992 per person. Why is that?

Italy ranks as one of the highest for health. Think about that – Italy, where people don’t shop processed foods, but have open markets – life isn’t slower, it is just accepted that time needs to be taken out of the day for rest and recouperation. Our lives are so filled with go, go, go all the time, we don’t take the time to sit back and enjoy what we have!

I was able to get some free time today, so as I was making some juices and preparing my coffee, a paradigm split hit me. It is nothing new to me, but just going over some comments that I have heard lately, and some other things going on in life, I really thought I needed to get some thoughts down.

We have two paradigms. One is the body can heal. The body is smart, and innately knows what to do to be well. It was created to be well, but there are things that can happen to block the avenues of health it seeks. At times, we don’t shine as bright as we can, because we have interference to the body. This causes a state of dis-ease. The body works SO hard to get back to homeostasis, but knows, ultimately, it can heal.

The other paradigm is that we are sick. Our body is weak, and can’t defend itself. Therefore, we must put medications, vaccinations, etc in it to prevent things from happening. How confusing must it be to constantly need something new to put in our body, because it is unable to do what it is supposed to do?

…wait, what did I just say? “because it is unable to do what it is supposed to do” – so, even the sick paradigm DOES understand our body is smart!! WHY, then, do we feel the need to constantly inject toxins into our bodies, to create health?

Every single day, our body is turning over cells, making new, getting rid of old. We create 150 BILLION new cells per day, and 60 trillion cells are replaced each year. Every day, during those 150 billion new cells, 2-3,000 go “bad”. No process is perfect, we all know that! Normally, the immune system comes through, clears it out, and we move on to the next day. In some people, though, those “bad” cells take off – and grow. We end up with cancer, or an autoimmune disorder.

That being understood, how does it make sense to put toxins in the body, in order to INCREASE immune function? Toxins are well known to DECREASE immune function – how is this a difficult concept?

We create what we want in life by thinking, doing, acting on what we want. Eating healthy foods, getting lots of water, sleep and positive energy in our lives, along with a little exercise can almost guarantee a long, happy life.

 

 

There are two sides to every single situation you have in life. How you choose your actions will determine your outcome, and determine your future. Choose wisely!
