The state we are – emotional or physical – is the state of consequences, of what we have done until now. We often mistakenly recognize it as final, as our “nature”, as something constant and unchangeable for it is all we know of our experience. That’s not true: each state is a result of our thinking, of acting from our assumptions; changing assumptions, we totally can change the state. But to do that, we must face the message about a lack, we must truly need the change. Don’t wait until cancer or other nasty illness forces you, listen to your body messages. Don’t ignore any disorder of your functioning – this is not true that if something concerns many or even most of people, it is natural, normal, safe. Whatever it is – headache, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, problems with skin, nails, hair, any pain – is not your nature, is an alarm of your body that you do something wrong, that you harm yourself. And almost all roads lead to how you nourish your body.
Whatever we eat gets digested, but to be absorbed needs suitable (alkaline) gut environment or is just wasted, expelled. The problem is that almost everything we use to eat is acid forming, and what we like the most – sugar, alcohol, coffee – is the most acid forming… The organism tries to neutralize the result of our wrong eating habits with some minerals that it must take from somewhere else – making other process distorted. Those possibilities are not endless – if we are obstinate with our bad eating habits, we ruin tissues that start being ailing and we keep our gut environment acid that causes growth of harmful gut microflora and more lacks of minerals and vitamins for not much can be absorbed of what we eat.
By the way, do you know that a kid that drinks one cola blocks absorbing anything for one whole day? This way someone may eat much and get fat, but becomes malnourished. I know a woman that drank cola as a medicine for frequent indigestions and after some time she had to call an ambulance, because she got tetany that meant the level of calcium and magnesium got drastically low. The doctor was sure she hasn’t eaten anything for weeks, asked her about a slimming diet – but she ate everything like always, just drank cola more and more often. Now recall the advertising and… Happy Christmas everyone. Yeah.
So, write down what you ate during the day and esteem what it made to your gut environment. Just search “acid-forming and alkaline-forming food” in the internet and you will know. The truth is that probably nobody eats the way that allows keeping alkaline gut environment. We made it more and more constantly acid what starts many different disorders in our body. Antibiotic treatment – probably also most of other medicines – ruin our gut environment as well.
We start a vicious circle, because changing aour body’s state, we start wanting food that keeps this state constant, so our chance to naturally recover gets smaller. Actually it is not a vicious circle, it is a downward spiral. Look around, it is our reality where health is not natural, is rather something extraordinary. But it can be different if we make a conscious decision to choose what serves us. It is not easy to stop and turn the downward spiral into upward one, but it is totally possible, including reversing many illnesses, also those serious like asthma or diabetes.
