A Balanced Approach to Wellness!

Because of the racial distress happening in the United States now, I’m reposting Spiritual Position on race as set forth in the book Descending into War, Descending into Contempt.

Condescension because of race is irrational. Belittling because of race is weak. Generalizing about race is uninformed. Thinking disparaging thoughts about other races is contemptuous.

Superiority because of the foolish thinking that race has influence on value is deluded. No race is superior to any other. Race is variations of people. No more, no less.

Descending into War, Descending into Contempt explains the main causes of conflict, which are the feelings of superiority, inequity, disappointment, and emasculation. These disruptive feelings push people to act with contempt towards others. They incite actions that end connections and lead to conflicts that often seem insurmountable.

Conflict seems to exist everywhere. Racial tensions divide, political opponents battle, and religious groups are combative. Even connected and supportive relationships fester in conflict. The sources of conflict are many, and they impact together and individually to inflict negativity within families, communities, and nations.

Acknowledging the sources of conflict is the first step to stopping conflict.

Although the topics of conflict, war, and contempt are difficult and often disheartening, Descending into War, Descending into Contempt ends with wisdom and instructions that can lead to a more just society.

The immune system is designed to stay functional, but modern society provides too many ways to sabotage it. In the post “Immune system decimators”, the decimators are listed, and some of them are discussed in later posts:

Environmental hazards that decimate the immune system

Immune system decimators, exploration continued

If you want to know what to do to overcome the destructive work that can be done to your immune system, read on…

Here are ten must-dos to keep your immune system functioning properly:

  • Food first:
    Less sugar, more salads. Less white flour, more lentils. Less margarine, more water and soup. Less processed meats and cheeses, more seeds. Less soft drinks, more whole grains.
  • Environmental hazards:
    Switch to natural cleansers and remove cleaning products that contain ingredients listed in the environmental hazards post. Limit dry cleaning. Keep smartphones and smart devices farther from your body. Avoid cigarette smoke and cut back if you smoke. Use natural beauty products. Avoid sunscreen products that are not safe.
  • Sleep:
    Each person needs to understand his or her sleep needs and be mindful to fulfill them. (There are other blog posts about sleep.)
  • Trauma:
    Working through past traumas is very important. When the current time is traumatic, steps to handle the trauma are very important.
  • Injury from drugs:
    Carefully check labels of prescription and nonprescription drugs to be aware of side effects and possible contraindications. Addictions are difficult to handle alone and require resolve and support from others: for addictions to legal or illegal drugs, aim to get help.
  • Loud sounds:
    Loud sounds are detrimental to the immune system, especially for children. Keep this fact in mind as you live your life.
  • Alcoholic beverages:
    Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation and at a slow pace has little effect on health, unless there are any of these circumstances: tendency towards addiction in the family, when autoimmune conditions are suspected or confirmed, when overconsumption of sweets or insulin resistance are occurring, when alcoholic beverages are forced on a person who doesn’t want them. Alcoholism, like addiction to drugs, is difficult to handle alone.

There are more ways to build up the immune system; however, the must-dos listed above have a very big effect.

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a two of them that are surprisingly related.

Let’s look at: 7. Trivialization of bodily functions  (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate) and 9. Drug-related injury  (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs). Each of these causes are partially within a person’s control and partially not.

Trivialization of bodily functions can be taught or self-discovered. People who feel that they are too busy to attend to bodily functions have self-discovered this behavior. People who were taught as children that bodily functions are unimportant or negative have less control of their destructive behavior. The impact on the immune system depends on a person’s age when trivialization of bodily functions starts to be a way of life. Over time, the immune system is more and more impacted and it can eventually give up. Taking care of bodily functions is of utmost importance for balance and well-being.

People choose to use drugs for many reasons. Sometimes drugs are prescribed to them by doctors. Sometimes a friend supplies them. Sometimes a person searches them out. Sometimes societal pressure convinces people that the drugs are a way of life. Whatever the reasons for using drugs, their impact on the immune system is the same. If the drug is taken irregularly, its impact on the immune system is dependent on the person’s age and emotional state. Chronic drug use, like trivialization of bodily functions, impacts the immune system and causes it to give up.

Once the immune system has been decimated by drug use that is chronic or excessive or by extended trivialization of bodily functions, the body cannot protect itself from invading viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Internal gene-related disturbances are usually not triggered by these types of disturbances, unless fear is present and is chronic or overly strong.

The immune system requires a functioning framework in which to handle its duties. External decimators, like drugs, and internal decimators, like trivialization of bodily functions, break the framework. The immune system simply cannot handle the onslaught of destruction.

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a few of them that are related.

From the list, 2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body and 4. Holding onto perceived injustices are closely related. If 8. Fear is involved with either of them, their effects on the immune system are more devastating.

The immune system is meant to keep our bodies protected from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism. The immune system also helps prevent gene-initiated diseases and syndromes.

# 2. When a traumatic event occurs, the body can be resilient or can store the traumatic memory. Traumas can wash through a person and leave little effects or they can imbed reminders in organs and systems in the body. These reminders swerve functionality, which then changes the ways in which the body handles onslaughts of germs. After a trauma, a person can be more susceptible to illness. If the trauma left reminders, the susceptibility to illness can continue for years.

# 4. Holding onto perceived injustices is surprising in its ability to unhinge the immune system. People face disappointments throughout their lives, and people who remember and regurgitate the disappointments are lowering their body’s ability to maintain a strong immune system.

# 8. Fear is a difficult emotion. It is natural, and yet, it sometimes overtakes living. A fearful event has repercussions in the body, but usually the fear instigates protective responses. If the fear is chronic, the protective responses slowly weaken the immune system. If fear is present during a traumatic event, the body can “rebel” and various buried syndromes can ignite. For example, if a person experiences a trauma and feels VERY fearful while the trauma is occurring, gene activation can occur and possibly trigger an autoimmune response.

Fear that accompanies holding onto perceived injustices is less destructive, but keeps the immune system lowered.

As with the other decimators of the immune system, damage depends on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

There are environmental hazards that wreak havoc on our immune systems. They inhibit the modules of the immune system from proper communications and functionality so that the immune system cannot perform its important work of protecting our bodies from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

Environmental hazards can be the most severe disrupters of immune system functionality. Here are some types of environmental hazards that cause trouble (in no particular order):

  • household products that contain sodium hydroxide, diethanolamine, stearalkonium hectorite, or sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate.
  • asbestos
  • arsenic, especially from cigarettes and arsenic trioxide in some cancer treatments
  • pesticides that contain ammonium or arsenic trioxide
  • nitrogen oxides that are in exhaust fumes
  • formaldehyde and polyfluoroalkyl substances(PFAS) in clothing
  • smartphone metals
  • calcium oxide

These immune-system decimators attack the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

To learn about other immune-system decimators, see the blog post “Immune system decimators”.

***IMMUNE SYSTEM*** 

IMMUNE SYSTEM! These two words should appear in all caps and with marquee emphasis! The immune system keeps our bodies protected and strong. Without protection and strength, our bodies can succumb to viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

The immune system prevents the onset of diseases and aging-related symptoms. When the immune system is strong, autoimmune syndromes are thwarted (before they start), gene-initiated attacks are prevented, emotional turmoil is lessened, and minor ailments are avoided. The immune system, when it is functioning properly, is that powerful!

Here are the major things that decimate the immune system’s ability to protect and strengthen our bodies. They are presented in their order of severity.

  1. Exposure to environmental hazards
  2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body
  3. Sleep that is too little for the person’s age
  4. Holding onto perceived injustices
  5. Constant criticism
  6. Inadequate nutrition (includes inadequate intake of water)
  7. Trivialization of bodily functions (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate)
  8. Fear
  9. Drug-related injury (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs)
  10. Exposure to overly loud sounds (children are especially affected)
  11. Alcoholism
  12. Exposure to people who are ill

Each of these immune-system decimators attacks the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina. In combination, they can overwhelm and defeat the body’s ability to withstand them.

Q&A microwaves

microwave

A friend has asked me to ask Spirit about the microwave. Here are her questions and Spirit’s answers. The list of questions isn’t exhaustive, so if you have questions please add them in the Comments.

Is it ok to use a microwave?

The answer is neither yes or no. A microwave is a tool in the kitchen and it depends how people use it.

If so, what are the recommended guidelines?

  1. In general, any food that is cooked in the microwave for over 10 minutes (without stopping the microwave in the middle) will not be cooked evenly and can cause burns if eaten immediately after the microwaving.
  2. If the door is damaged in any way, the microwave should no longer be used.
  3. The microwave should be placed where children under the age of seven can’t open it, but not so high that food containers are difficult to insert and remove.

Will the food be less nutritious?

No.

Is it OK to use one for heating (as opposed to cooking)?

Yes.

What about flash cooking vegetables?

Vegetables cook better on the stove top when the heat is high and the cooking time is short.

Is it OK to use plastic containers in the microwave, as long as the food contains no oil? Is it OK to cover food with a plastic cover? a beeswax-infused cover?

The best containers for microwaving are glass. The best covers are microwave approved (from a reputable company), paper, and not old (old means in terms of usage: no scratches or tears). No to beeswax coverings and plastics that can melt in a dishwasher.

Is it important to stand some distance away while it is working?

Several factors affect the distance to stand. Older people who are not ill can stand next to it, while ill people or children should stand farther away. The issue is not radiation, but of vibrations that affect blood flow and digestion.

Is it OK to cook porridge in the microwave?

Yes.

How often should one have the MW checked for excessive radiation?

If the microwave is damaged so that the door doesn’t close completely, get a new microwave.
