There is this very strange and scary belief that things just happen to your body and there really is nothing you can do about it. It leaves people with a sense of being completely out of control about what happens to them. But the question is...is that true?
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I say absolutely not. As a matter of fact, I was taught that we create the wellness we are experiencing in our body by the way we eat, drink, think, and live. And as a perfectly healthy, non-prescription-taking woman I can attest to the truth in that statement. So let's break it down...
I am not about to tell you what you should or should not be eating. What I will say is if nature made it, eat it, and if man made it, avoid it. And if you are interested in adding more healthy foods into your diet may I suggest the book Eat to Beat Disease by Dr. William Li.
As far as what you should drink...water! Your body requires 1/2 of your weight in ounces of water daily to perform optimally. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water daily.
But let's get to the interesting part...what you think and how you live have as much to do with your health and well-being as what you eat and drink! What?!? Oh yes my friend, it is true! All of those negative thoughts that we focus on and all of the emotions that come up in reaction to those negative thoughts are as damaging to you as an unhealthy diet. Perhaps even more so.
Why? Because emotions each have a vibratory pattern, as do your organs. Those vibratory patterns can interfere with the frequency of healthy tissues causing dis-ease. Here's are some examples; anger can affect the liver, resentments affect the gallbladder, grief affects the lungs, an unwillingness to let go affects the colon, fear affects the kidneys, bitterness affects the heart, and the list goes on.
So learning how to focus the mind on our vision of the life we want to create is the first step in changing what we are experiencing physically. I have had clients heal themselves of all kinds of "unhealable" issues...from herpes to pancreatic cancer. And each of them started with a clear vision of what their life was going to look like once they were completely healed. Their certainty in the body's ability to heal itself was key.
Not to mention brilliant. After all the body was designed to be a vehicle for your spirit to experience the human condition for as long as it is wanted and needed. The body is designed to be a self-healing machine, and as long as it is given what it needs to heal itself (nutritious food, clean water, peaceful thoughts, and joyful experiences) it will last for as long as you desire.
We have covered a lot of information this week about mental, emotional, and physical health and well-being and I'm sure you may have some questions. I am going to be hosting an Office Hour Q&A Session tomorrow at 4pm eastern time on Facebook. If you are not going to be available at that time, please leave your questions in the comments and I will answer them tomorrow Live. I will tag you with the replay so you can listen when you are available.
Looking forward to seeing you soon...
