The answer is YES! I just returned home from a trip back to my home town for my Mom's passing and funeral. While it was sad, it is always nice to see friends and relatives we haven't seen for a while. It was also quite eye opening to me. What I saw (and heard about) is who has cancer, diabetes, and/or heart disease! Yes, the three BIG ones. Some of my closest friends have lost their loved ones early to heart disease, many are dealing with cancers, diabetes, and even Alzheimers is a constant concern. Being in the field of natural and preventive health care for many years, it was shocking to me. I have been working on preventing these for many years, for myself and many others.
There are many factors to consider. The most obvious is the diet. SUGAR is everywhere and is a socially accepted addiction, yet it is as addictive as crack cocaine, or heroin. It is truly a killer when consumed regularly. It weakens the immune system, acidifies the body, feeds yeast, parasites, as well as cancers to flourish out of control. It even impacts our brains like rot. Our pancreas and insulin receptors get overloaded and cannot regulate the constant influx of sugar in the body. Breakdown occurs, and organs can be damaged, as well as circulation.
Then there's STRESS! Everyone is overstressed these days from numerous different sources. If it is not emotional or mental stress, it can be financial, societal stress, EMF overload from electronics and Wifi, toxins in our foods, environment and body care products, and even our THOUGHTS! The autonomic nervous system gets kicked into sympathetic overdrive and often gets stuck in a chronic stress response. Our normal, daily body functions, like eating, digesting, repairing, resting, sleeping, eliminating, and balancing the systems takes a back seat. Chronic stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, as well as excessive sugar and toxins, can damage our organs!
While it is helpful to educate ourselves about healthy living and dietary habits, it may not be easy to change. But starting with awareness and learning more about the choices you make, and WHY will help. The typical American diet is horrendous. This WILL lead to disease. We have way too many processed foods (boxed), fast food, junk foods with NO nutritional value, preservatives, chemicals, colorings, genetically modified foods, irradiated foods, poor quality fats and oils, and of course all the sugar and artificial sugar substitutes. These types of foods take MORE of your energy resources (nutrients) to process and deal with them. They have a negative impact on the entire system. The easiest thing to do is stick to food that comes from nature - in its natural state, like whole ancient grains, vegetables, fruits, and cleanly raised meats and wild fish, as well as fermented foods.
What most people don't consider is how our thoughts and emotions are also impacting our cellular health. Our attitude, whether positive or negative, always impacts our entire system; our cells are listening! Negative emotions like fear, worry, anger, resentments, despair, shame, guilt, blame, deceit, bitterness, and more will always bring our vibrational state down to a negative frequency, which in turn is acid forming and detrimental to our health. Positive thoughts and emotions like gratitude, love, appreciation, honesty, joy and happiness, acceptance, allowing, integrity, connection, and more raise us up - they soothe and FEED our Soul on a deeper level.
We also have trapped emotions, trauma's, cellular memories, inherited patterns, and past life challenges that were not fully resolved, that can 'block' or impact our energy, our organs, meridians, and our lives! Even if we eat good food, take healthy nutrients and herbal remedies, we still have to heal the deeper issues on the cellular level. EVERY SINGLE DISEASE has an emotional component, an inner 'pain' that is trying to get your attention to be addressed and released. That is what true healing is all about. It does not have to be a difficult or lengthy process.
Getting down to the ROOT cause, the underlying negative influences, is essential. Nutritional deficiencies, even one or two, can create a cascade of other imbalances. Old, limiting beliefs need to be shifted. Our perspective may need to change. Our choices, as well as our intention, need to be clear and strengthened. Our medical system, besides emergency care, tends to medicate any symptom. But that does NOT facilitate the actual healing process. Our bodies are brilliantly designed to heal themselves when given the proper circumstances. Rebalancing the hormones and neurotransmitters are crucial as well. But we cannot just stop there. We can go deeper to REALLY heal and PREVENT disease from expressing itself. I know I have had to make many changes over the years, and still have to work on things to take good care of my body every day. It's not always easy, but it does pay off!
Preventive Health Care is invaluable! Who wants to get Cancer, or Alzheimers, or Diabetes, or Heart disease? NO ONE. People suffer terribly. So many people do not realize the connection between our diet, our choices, our perspective, our beliefs, our past, and even our faith. Healing is becoming WHOLE - meaning our body, mind, emotions, and our Soul are releasing anything that is having a negative impact. Allow the cells to be nourished, the energy to flow, the body to be alkalized, the mind to be comforted, and the Soul to flourish into our highest, happiest state of Being. After all, I believe that THIS is the purpose of life. We are in a time of accelerated healing on many levels. Are you doing what it takes?
