Body Language

Body language

Have you ever wondered how the medical establishment views health? Well if we put the pieces of the puzzle
together perhaps we can better understand the true intentions of medical
sciences. Consider this, when you have a problem with your health, say
…arthritis, you make an appointment with your doctor in order to feel
better … in order to be healed of the malady which has been visited upon
you. When you get to the doctor you explain to them that you are
experiencing pain and joint discomfort, loss of strength and vitality.
The doctor then examines you, possibly runs some tests and comes back
with the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. In your mind you envision
the crippled hands and joints of one suffering from this debilitating
disease and quickly ask the doctor if he can heal you… the doctor takes
out his little pad and writes down a prescription telling you that
although rheumatoid arthritis in not curable he can lessen the pain and
slow the destruction of the dis ease , and like many you thank him for
helping you to overcome this painful ailment and hurry off to the
pharmacy to get your medicine. Well… lo and behold, the medicine works
and you feel much better, everything is back to normal. You continue
your prescription remedy and every thing seems fine, except that is for
the slight headache and stomach discomfort…not bad just a little bother,
nothing serious…must be a touch of the flu or something. Then after a
couple of months you begin to feel tenderness around your mid section, a
bloating kind of tenderness, and for some reason you seem to have
picked up a kidney infection. Better get back to the doctor for another
prescription. So you make another appointment and the doctor examines
you, and says, yes you seem to have a kidney infection and your pancreas
is swollen and inflamed. But don’t worry take these pills and you will
feel better. You ask him why am I having this trouble and the doctor
says, well, it could be your diet, or you could just be getting old, you
nod, and take the prescription to your local pharmacy and pick up your
medication, and the game plays on…..

This is how the medical community works, by prescription, they are not in it for the cure, that
would be a silly and self destructive thing to do. If they cure you, you
don’t come back.. If you don’t come back they go out of business. In
other words, curing you is the last thing they intend to do. You are no
good to them if you are healthy. So if the doctor sees you as a monetary
asset why on earth would you think he had your best interest and health
at heart?

Well believe it or not, millions of people are life long
members of the false health system, and they have the ill health to
prove it! With prescription regimens consisting sometimes of dozens of
medications to deal with everything from indigestion to athletes foot
and every thing in between. It is no wonder that the majority of the
worlds population are suffering, getting sicker faster and dying slowly
as they become less and less vital leading to inevitable death at the
hands of medical science. Yes we pay dearly to die at the hands of the
medical establishment, and they just love us for it!

So how can we change this self destructive course we are on… after all, its not
just the prescriptions that are killing us, there are toxins in every
thing we touch, eat, drink, wear and breathe. In the following text we
will explore options and remedies that if taken seriously and used will
bring us to a place of true and vital health. Will this guarantee life
long disease and chronic pain free health? Speaking from experience I will say emphatically
Yes!

So here we go, the adventure awaits…..

Where does ill health come from?

This may seem an obvious question to many, but if you buy into the genetic
marker disease argument then I need to bust that bubble . Genetics may
play a part in our propensity for dis ease… but if we are nutritionally
sound then there is no correlation no reason that our genetic make up
should lead inevitably to ill health. It is only when our bodies can not
sustain itself due to lack of nutrition that we fall ill and open the
doors to those genetic markers. The problem is.. That today, nutrition
can not be found in our commercial food industries, the products we
purchase touting the nutritional benefits of vegetables, fruits and even
meats are misleading at beast and criminal at worst. When your purchase processed
food products you are purchasing dead nutrition-less food,
chocked full of chemicals and preservatives, none of which are beneficial
to the body and all of which are harmful. But we can not stop here…
there’s more.

Food is one way in which the medical establishment
corrupts the body and creates new patients, but what about the other
things we ingest or consume on a daily basis? Every thing, shampoo,
mouth wash, toothpaste, deodorant, make up, hair dye, all carcinogens,
with a guarantee of toxic effect. Then we move on to the clothes we
wear, shoes, gloves, socks , and even our underwear, babies diapers,
pajama’s you name it.. If it is not made of unbleached undyed cotton or
other natural fabrics your skin will soak up toxins on a continual
basis.

It’s easy to over look the toxic environment, we focus so much on
what the governments and industry do blatantly yet all the while we are
soaking up toxins from every available source. It is no wonder that the
worlds population are sick and dying, the medical and consumer industry
have provided the perfect vector for their poisons.

How can we possibly expect to retain health in such a deadly environment? To be
honest, it will take more than a clean and chemical free food supply,
more than safe and pure drinking water, it will take sacrifice, a change
in lifestyle, and a change in how you view health and nutrition. The
things I will tell you here are not secrets held by a chosen few over
the ages nor will they be new scientific models given by the medical
establishment, it‘s not a new way of looking at health.. The things I
will tell you are simple, ancient and provable the only issue you will
have is your commitment and desire to live a vital and healthy life, if
the commitment is there then you can achieve health… I know some of you
will say, well it may be easy for you but not where I live… but then I
did not say it was going to be easy, nothing worth having is easy, but
if you truly are committed to your health then you will find a way to
institute these simple lifestyle changes which in many ways will be much
more accessible and cheaper to come by..

The Vital Diet
There is only one way in which to insure that your body gets the nutritional
elements it needs to function properly in order to retain vitality. You
have heard of the food pyramid, designed by the American Food and Drug
Administration, a guide to daily nutritional needs. Well I find that the
information and literature on this subject are much more useful when
used as the lining on bird cages. The correct and wholesome (with the
life therein) nutritional chart reads much better …it goes like this;

Fruits, Grains, Vegetables, Nuts, and Seeds.
A daily diet which involves these five food groups is by far the more
advantageous route to health., (do ya hear me FDA, lets talk!). If this
sounds kind of simple and basic… well that’s cause it is. But there is
more to it, let me explain… before civilization, and the advent of
communal life where one size fit everyone… people did not sit down to
dinner, they did not ingest food that was prepared, cooked or baked…
although roots and grains were boiled because of the density and
digestibility, mostly the foods were eaten on a continuous basis,,,or on an
as needed basis. This is because the energy of live food afforded the
most nutrition then and it still does today.

Eat your food raw as much as possible, vegetables cooked, steamed
or boiled have very little if any nutritional value, it is dead food,
processing kills nutrition every time!
The body does not have a time schedule for nutrition, there are
too many variables, activity, age, and environment. The body is a
machine, a self regulating machine, a self medicating machine.. Eating
large nutritionally dead meals may fill you up for the moment, but the
truth of the matter is you are overloading your digestive tract, and
causing excess bacteria and toxins to attach themselves to your system,
your body is full of nothing but useless dis ease building material. It
may taste good, and smell good but like everything else the propaganda
machine puts out…it’s a lie. A diet of fresh vital fruits, vegetables,
grains, nuts and seeds eaten on a continual basis will provide your body
with everything it needs to retain health and vitality. Snacking your
way to health instead of eating your way to dis ease.

I can not control the circumstances or difficulties that you may face due to area,
legalities, or monetary issues, these are beyond my ability to change.
What I can do however, is show you what can be achieved in the simplest
way possible for you to stay vital in the face of the environmental
toxins and dis ease that effects all of us.

A steady diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds , any nuts and seeds, some may hold
better vitamin or protein density, but if you are able to mix it up you
will get what you need. You can purchase dry fruit which if dried
naturally will retain its nutritional benefits, or you can dehydrate
them yourself. There are many ways to make a solar dehydrator, and lots
of information can be found online. Vegetables should be eaten raw, but
can also be dried, the more water content the better the nutritional
value after drying. Seeds such as sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin
seeds etc. are excellent sources of protein and other nutrients, and
wild harvested seed grasses have high nutritional value. Grains such as
wild rice, wheat, barley etc. are dense and require heat to release the
nutrients inside , which makes them an excellent match for legumes, rice
combined with beans make up a complete amino acid peptide chain, a
power house of balanced nutrition, combine that with fresh raw onions,
celery, carrots etc. and nothing could be more healthy! Juices are
essential but, you should not mix your fruits too much,. When we eat or
drink our mouth secretes enzymes which tell the stomach what it will be
digesting, regulating the stomach acids so that it is in balance.
Because fruits like apples have differencing sugars than say a
grapefruit this can sometimes if done frequently enough cause stomach
digestion issues.

Make yourself a little bag of goodies to take with you
every day, instead of filling your stomach with processed dead food,
grab a handful of dried fruit, nuts and or seeds. Eat it slowly,
allowing the enzymes to do their job, you will find not only are you
less hungry, but your energy level will not spike up and down. Do this
every day, then when you get home at night , eat a well balanced meal,
including meat if you like, but keep in mind that it takes the stomach
much longer to digest meat, so don’t eat as much. Also drinking during
the meal can weaken the stomach acids causing slow or incomplete
digestion.

Another way to make sure that the stomach is ready for a
balanced meal is to eat an apple about thirty minutes before your meal.
This allows fiber for digestion and other nutrients good for digestion.
Don’t over eat! Stop before you are full, your stomach will love you for
it!

Body Language, How The Body Talks

*Note, Body Language should have been published first, my mistake!

In my previous blog I discussed the need for vital, and wholesome food consumption for optimal health, but there are other ways in which we can also help our body to make the most of our daily diet. Beyond food and nutrition there is the body communication.

Once again if we retrace our steps backwards to our ancestors we will find that we are very different in our physiology as well as our mental and emotional states. Our ancestors viewed life very differently from what we perceive as life today.. The goals were of a more simpler and holistically pure motivation… food and shelter. Simple survival.

Today our goals are no longer simple, survival has taken on a different meaning. We do not eat for survival anymore.. we eat for pleasure, social interaction, taste and our appetites have grown, but not out of necessity, the amount of wholesome food required for health is not excessive and is far less then what we consume on a daily basis.

Eating is much more a social interaction of status and fulfillment of the taste buds. The exception to this rule would be the always in a hurry just grab a bite swallow and run attitude toward food. When we sit down to order a meal do we first consider what it is that our body needs? Do we even know? Sadly … and i say this sincerely …no we don’t. In fact i think it is safe to say that for the majority the thought never enters the equation. We want well cooked tasty food, and we want it quick and affordable! Is it any wonder that the vast majority of people living today are chronically ill and vitamin deficient, if food is not nutritious, if it does not feed the body, then what exactly can you expect of your health.

Listening to your body talk

The body is a wonderfully constructed machine… what we see as a simple task such as picking up a newspaper actually requires millions of chemical releases within the body and brain.. these chemical interactions produce the required bodily actions..increasing and decreasing blood flow, muscle contractions,eye movement, and the translation of visual to chemical stimulus needed to complete the task… yet, did you tell your body what to do?

Did you tell it which hormones to release, how much, and for how long? Did you mentally do the math required to perform the function? Need I say more… lets face it… your body is much smarter, faster and accurate than you will ever be. It can do the math and complete the equation before you have had time to add 1+1, and if you think you are good at multi-tasking think again. The body handles millions of body functions twenty four hours a day 365 days a year, non stop… over and over without a hitch… until it runs out of nutrition.

The only way that the body functions is with specific fuel… The only way to health is through nutrition, the body can only use vitamins, minerals and proteins, and they must be organic, fresh and wholesome. If you deprive the body of the essentials then you deprive yourself of health and will surely damage and possibly kill the body that sustains you. This is a cold hard fact… if you do not eat a nutritious diet your body can not function, will not function and you will find yourself a victim of any available dis ease that comes your way.

Pain, how come it hurts when i do this?

Ever have those aches and pains that seem to constantly bother you for a day or two and then subside..get more manageable only to recur more severe over time..till evertually the pain becomes unbearable and we finally go to the doctor for relief..pay the heftly clinic fee, treatment fee, x-rays and the prescription… maybe it was an infection, anemia, bronchitis or one of the many other illness’s associated with mal nutrition…yes that’s right..those fast food burgers, and trendy restaurants may have provided a pleasant social environment or a quick lunch on the go…but they did not come bearing gifts of nutritious bounty… they instead added more work for already nutritionally deprived body. How come your doctor did not tell you that?

There are many ways that the body talks to you… skin rashes, headaches, indigestion, tenderness in the mid section, muscle cramps… these are signals that something is not working right… your body is communicating not only within to the necessary nerves, cells, and hormones…but to you also. Learning to hear what your body is saying is not hard.. eating nutritious wholesome food is the only prescriptive cure.

Make Everyday a National Day of Prayer

With all the devastation going on across our nation, and the economic and political climate around the globe, it should be obvious that we need to be in meditation/prayer for the situation everyday.  Don’t let the chance to do good for everyone, which actually costs you nothing, pass you by! After all, how often do you get to help nearly 7 billion people for free!!!

Take your opportunities when you get them…driving to the grocery, waiting while you are picking your children up from school or extra-curriculars,  stirring the food you are cooking, walking the dog, walking to your car from shopping, waiting for the page you are printing to load…even while taking your shower!

We are told not to ramble on about what we are praying for, so it doesn’t have to consume your whole day…Even available minutes waiting to move to the next thing in your day can be enough to lift up mankind!  You might be amazed at what you can accomplish!

Learning something new…

For whatever reason, I’ve been called to my computer, logged into this account and am searching for the words to say.  Usually when I am called to the computer to write, the words are pretty much already there.  One of the things I have found about blogging is that it is extremely therapeutic…and I get answers from what I write.

Before I had first-hand experience with the spiritual, I was a professional picture framer.  I loved my job and I was good at it.  When I first got started, I was self taught, and a bit young.  I would not tell someone I didn’t know how to do what they wanted me to do for them, but about 3 days before the project would be due, I would dream about how to do it, and viola!  I would be able to do the job perfectly!  This happened to me MANY times, during the first of my career.  After a while, the Great Spirit had trained my brain, while I was asleep, to just think in that way, and I never had a problem.  It was amazing, really!

Picture framing was all I knew, as I had done it for 20 years, literally my entire adult life.  My husband, who was in the music business (for an  independent label), had delved into the world of alternative media, and desperately wanted to try his hand at producing a radio program.  A producer’s spot came open with one of the shows he listened to and he took the job.  That meant leaving the comfort of our friends and family, and a job I had done all my life, and moving to an unknown town and situation…we prayed about it first, and got our sign…so we went.

The experience was humbling for me.  I had to find a new job.  The town was very small and there was a frame shop in it, but it was not busy enough to warrant hiring someone, even with the skill level I possessed.  So, I started looking elsewhere.  I applied at grocery stores, banks, even Wal-mart, but no job.  Up to then, I had never applied for a job and not been offered it…NEVER!  I was in a weird place.

One day, I was driving around looking for places, looking for that “sign,” just talking to Our Creator about my job hunt…Not complaining, mind you, just talking, and I drove past the prettiest nursery I had ever seen…and it had a HUGE sign, “NOW HIRING.”  I had ZERO experience with plants at that point…Really less than zero…sure, I had a few and sure I planted stuff in the spring, but if it died, I hadn’t a clue…if it lived, I hadn’t a clue…I drove past it thinking, “Gosh, I wish I had experience with that!  It looks like such a beautiful place!”  I am one of those people who talks to myself, too…and I talked to myself, and to Our Creator, the whole drive home, not even bothering to stop and apply, as I had NO skills.  Yet, I could not escape the thought of the place.  The “conversations” on the drive home were very enlightening!  Don’t ever let anyone tell you this is no way to accomplish something!

I pulled into my driveway…walked inside, didn’t even put my keys down, turned right back around, walked back to my car, got in it and drove back.  I applied for the job…and got it, to my amazement!  THE best job I have ever had, in my life…and a turning point, as well.  It was this job that brought me to alternative medicine.  It was this job that opened another world of “stuff” to learn and do…And, it was THIS JOB that connected me on an even deeper spiritual level with the Divine within me.

I have moved on, but I find myself looking back on that time with very fond memories and also planning a future that will include a nursery of my own some day.

The conversations I had with myself and God?  Well, those are a bit different, you see.

With myself, I talked about the opportunity of just having a job, and how it would not hurt me to at least try for it.  After all, not everyone who gets into something new knows all about it at first.  After all, that sign I had asked for could not have been any bigger!  So what would it hurt to at least apply?  All that could happen was I wouldn’t get the job.

With The Divine, it was something to the affect of, “God, now you know I am willing to try anything, but this?  Really? You do understand I have LESS THAN NO experience, right!?!”  and God answered back, “Yep, this, really.  Just do it.  I wouldn’t give you something that you couldn’t do.  I am with you always, and would steer you wrong…Just do it!”

My Spirit came alive doing that job…and that life, and Spirit, grow stronger and stronger with every passing day.  Different opportunities and different learning experiences come along, both professionally and spiritually.  I have met some of my dearest friends by taking this path…and I would not trade one minute of it for anything in this world…

Loved One…

Know your heart and search your soul.
Find the thing that makes you whole.
Have no fear in moving on.
Find, within, what makes you strong.
Hold on tight to all your dreams.
Nothing is as awful as is seems.
Stay in touch with the Divine.
You will find your way in time.
Never forget just who you are.
Your acceptance of that will take you far.
You are deeply loved and truly adored.
By the only one that matters, Your Blessed Creator!

To My Mother…

As I have said before, I am very blessed, with regards to my parents.  My mother was 16 when she and my dad married.  He was 21, and, as the story goes, they had to lie about her age in order to get married.  Only a few of my dad’s relatives, including his parents, thought they had any chance of staying married.  My mother’s parents were livid…

It was nearly a year and seven months to the day after their marriage that I was born.  My mother had all three of her children before she was 21 years old.  Even though she was very young, she was a great mother!  There could be no doubt in ANYONE’S mind whether or not my mother loved us.  She showered us with affection…but we were also disciplined when warranted and taught to show the proper respect for whomever we met.  We went everywhere with our parents and if we got out of line, there were consequences…AND, if we happened to act up in class, we knew that our punishment at home would far outweigh ANYTHING the school could do to us…So we were all well behaved.

My point???  These days, we read all the time about teen pregnancies and children being neglected and taken away from these child/parents, as well as older parents, and sometimes the reason is “I don’t know what I’m doing.”  So, how has that changed since my mother was a “teen mom?”

Truth is, it hasn’t.  There is no official “Baby 101” manual, so parents have to be dedicated to their child.  I was born when my mother was 17 years old.  My dad worked 2 and 3 jobs so that my mother could stay home with us kids, and later be there when we got home from school to help us with homework.  She also did all the other stuff mother’s do, but it never went unnoticed by my father.  My dad helped around the house and with us kids when he got off work or had a a day off. They worked as a team to get their job done with regards to us.  I never heard my mother whine or complain or feel the least bit sorry for herself.  She did what needed to be done, because, after all, she and my dad brought us into this world…She missed her high school graduation, her prom, going out with her friends to hang out on a Friday night, all the stuff kids do now.  She, later, got her GED and went on to go to college and get her Master’s Degree, with honors…all without neglecting her family…She is amazing!

My mother was a mother when we were growing up, but became my friend when I transitioned into adulthood.  Don’t get me wrong, when I made a mistake, my mother reverted back to her mother-role right away, and still will, if she feels she needs to do so!  BUT…one thing is for sure, I have NEVER doubted her love for me, and I KNOW beyond any doubt that she is supportive.  She is a Blessing from Our Creator to me in this life and there are really no words I can use to thank the Divine for such a gift…I love you my mommy!

Just today

What if just today was all you had,
to make your presence known?
If only today you could make your mark
in this world in which we grow?
What would we learn about you ,
and what you hold so dear?
Would we understand what makes you tick,
and what causes you to fear?

You are a Child of the Divine,
and all should know about that!
You are loved, special and adored,
and that is just a fact!
Can you see it?  Believe in it?
So many ignore and think it’s odd…
Never doubt who you really are,
A Blessed Child of God!

Let my personal record show…

Being involved in political research and following politics as I have for several years, studying the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the many spiritual awakenings I have encountered over the years, some things are starting to stand out.  There is so much mudslinging, name calling and just plain disrespect going around to last us a ten life times!  Add to that that it isn’t just happening in the political arena, but in churches and even among friends and families and you quickly see that things are out of hand!

There are some things that I would like to make perfectly clear, in an effort to help others, who feel the same way, express themselves.

First, I do not “hate” anyone…Hate is useless and makes people do silly things to each other.  Long ago, one of my Sunday School teachers used to teach that hate causes more damage to the one who hates than the one who is hated.  Hate preoccupies your mind and causes the “hater” undo stress and we all know that isn’t good..It is a colossal waste of time and is, quite frankly, ridiculous. Can we not disagree without hate?

Second, my opinion is just that, mine.  You do not have to agree with it, and you certainly do not have to embrace it.  It is my birthright to freely believe what I believe.  I may not agree with your take on certain things, but that does not mean I do not respect you as the Divine child of Our Creator that you are.  It does no good to require people to believe exactly like you in order for you to be friends.  What happened to individuality, personal interpretation?  Also, if I ask for your opinion, I will certainly not hold a grudge against you for giving it to me…what kind of logic is THAT?

Third, speaking of individuality, Our Creator gave us freedom of choice.  If you choose one belief and I choose another, who is wrong?  Exactly!  No one!  All we are asked to do is love our brothers and sisters on this planet and to not murder, covet, steal, cheat, lie.  Soooo…

Forth, while we are at the “murder, covet, steal, cheat, lie” part, all of those take MANY forms…remember that as you move through your journey here.  You can “murder (technically kill)” one’s reputation, attitude, mood and self esteem.  You can steal one’s friends, spouse, “thunder” etc.  You can lie when the truth would suit the situation better.  You can also “lie” but keeping silent about something of importance.  I think we are getting the idea…Words and attitudes hurt people, sometimes by being voiced and sometimes by NOT being voiced.  Human’s only use about 10% of their brains…do you think maybe the world would be a MUCH better place if we all endeavored to use more of our brain and maybe think before we speak???

Fifth, if, after observing your situation, I tell you something I feel you need to know, it is only out of sincere respect and concern for you and your situation.  I am not trying to be better than you…That can never be, we are all different Divine expressions of humanity.  Not better or worse, just different.  At that moment, I may understand or see something that you do not…that’s all…Just trying to help…

Sixth, I try not to jump to conclusions based on one person’s words or thoughts.  If you have a problem with someone, why not go straight to them and ask about it?  What does that hurt?  Why believe the first thing you hear?  If you are family or even truly friends (“good friends” does not apply here!), then you should be able to talk it out.  No need to take things personally, as many people do.  Miscommunication and misinterpretation are running rampant and it is my personal belief that communication, clear and concise, would end a boat load of personal and family trauma!

Finally, I love ALL human beings.  I may view some of the actions of this or that person as weird or strange, or may just not understand at all, but I have no idea what they are going through, so how can I make some random interpretation of their situation?  And…I still love humankind…Love is worthwhile, creates joy, happiness, lifts our spirit, attitude, self-esteem and connects us deeper to Our Divine Creator…and I ask you, who wouldn’t want THAT!?!
