Scraps in the Body

scraps in the bodyShe constantly worries that more abnormalities will be detected. One test after another brings less serenity and more anxiety. The growth in her lung started the ball rolling, and it picks up speed with each test and each wait for results. The growth was not cancerous, but it was removed anyway. It had its purpose, but that purpose was never considered, and so, it was removed.

Our bodies work in ways we can’t understand. Sometimes the growths become infected and they harm the body (the cancerous growths). Sometimes they develop as responses to emotional turmoil. Even frustration can contribute to formation of a growth. The emotional growths can come and go, and the body usually dissolves them or builds “walls” around them to keep them from affecting body functioning.

The upkeep of the body is a complicated, encompassing process. Problems in one area affect the body in that spot and in others. A cut on the finger can instigate disruptions in other parts of the body. Irritation affecting the esophagus can trigger multiple reactions in organs and systems throughout the body. Small hurts can trigger major responses, and healing can become a full-body mission.

The body constantly moves the foreign and internally made waste through the body towards ejection. When the waste is ejected correctly, the body continues its marking and removal of unwanted matter. When the waste is blocked from removal, it is handled through secondary channels.

The placement of bits in various parts of the body is one of the mechanisms of storing unwanted matter temporarily. The lungs are a temporary storage facility for the bits. When the body is able to remove the unwanted matter, the storage areas are emptied of the bits and the waste is ejected correctly. The temporary storage disappears as if it was never there.

When proper movement of waste is continually blocked, temporary storage becomes larger and harder to empty. More and more storage areas are created and they become part of the ejection process. Bits are channeled to them before removal, and the storage areas slowly receive a formed shape.

The formed storage areas are not permanent, unless the body cannot process waste without them. The storage areas receive functionality just like other parts of the body. They provide service in the upkeep of the body. Although they are not identical in all bodies, they perform very similar services.

The purpose of the storage areas in the body is unclear, and the temporary storage areas are seen as problematic. Because they are suspicious, they are often removed. Their removal can trigger imbalance in the waste ejection system and can cause numerous reactions in other bodily processes.

The situation described at the beginning of this blog post is an example of misunderstood waste disposal. The body is brilliant in its design and resilience, which can be difficult to understand and interpret.

This blog post provides a partial explanation for development of unexplained activity in the body. The information has been given from Spirit.

Flu Destruction: Yes, the Flu is Dangerous!

no-to-flu

The flu annoys and disturbs functioning. It sometimes leads to serious illness when the afflicted person has a compromised immune system or ignores the body’s messages to fight the flu virus.

The flu charges the body with force that is hard to stop. Propelled towards openings, flu viruses enter the body with coded instructions to overcome the body’s defenses.

To combat invasion by flu viruses, the body must respond with equal force. The viruses withstand basic defenses. They are overcome only when the body’s defenses are focused and protective.

If the body is busy handling emotional upheaval, is dimmed from too little rest, is stressed from existing illness, or is experiencing anticipation or episodes of fear, flu viruses can prevail. The diminished state of the body cannot withstand the force of the flu viruses.

When a virus enters the body, the defenses give way or rally depending on the state of health and the person’s willingness to care for his or her body. As the body notifies about the flu invasion, care through rest, wise nutrition, and desire to heal are the steps that rally the body’s defenses. Aids such as Vitamin C can help, but only if the other self-care steps are taken as well. Ignoring the body’s miserable state can lead to extended flu with long-lingering secondary effects.

If the body is depleted when the flu virus charges, the intensity of the flu can seem worse than it is. Healing takes longer, but occurs when self-care is good. If the body is depleted and self-care is too little, the body can become very ill. Other germs can invade as well, and the body might require intensive care to heal.

The flu is a serious virus that should be protected against by good nutrition, proper rest, and attention to stresses. If the flu succeeds in beating the body’s defenses, self-care is very important. Our bodies are built to withstand the onslaught of flu viruses, but we must assist them in their constant vigil against illness. Staying well is the best defense!

Flu Protection: What to Eat

no-to-flu

Flu season is approaching. Here are food tips to protect against the flu and to heal from the flu.

Prevention

To keep flu viruses from infecting:

  • Eat foods that increase resistance: pumpkin, arugula, cabbage, parsley, lemon, pomegranate, mulberries, buckwheat, blackstrap molasses, and kombu seaweed.  Other vegetables that are helpful in strengthening the body besides these ten foods are: cruciferous vegetables (which include the cabbage and arugula listed above) and orange-colored vegetables (which include the pumpkin listed above).
  • Eat a reasonable amount of food each day. Too much food taxes the body’s defenses. Too little food lowers the body’s resistance.
  • Supplement your diet with garlic, sprouted seeds from the cabbage family (broccoli, watercress, and turnip sprouts), and small amounts of certain oils (olive oil that was cold-pressed extra virgin, evening primrose oil, and borage seed oil).

During the flu

To counter the flu virus after it has overcome the body’s defenses:

  • Warming foods are helpful. If chewing is an effort, eat pureed vegetable and chicken soup, if you eat meat. Eat pureed vegetable and legume soup, if you don’t eat meat.
  • Eat when your appetite appears. Don’t put off eating, because the flu can influence your desire to take in foods that combat the virus.
  • Eat foods listed in the section above.

After the flu

To strengthen the body after the flu has passed:

  • Slowly increase the amount of food you eat.
  • Avoid highly processed and sweetened foods.
  • Limit the amount of dairy products until the residual effects of the flu have passed.

Flu Season Do’s and Don’ts

no-to-flu

Flu can strike at any time, but the winter is especially rife with flu viruses. The viruses hitchhike from carrier to carrier, surprising the body’s defenses with distinct vitality.

In order to combat flu vitality, here are do’s and don’ts that can protect you from contracting the flu.

Do’s

  • Stay away from people carrying a flu virus. The easiest way to spot a carrier is to notice their vitality. People carrying a flu virus that is transferable have given their vitality to the virus. (By the time carriers have the flu symptoms, they may have already passed the virus on to others, so looking for lack of vitality is an early clue to virus protection.)
  • Stay hydrated throughout the day. The body can flush out flu viruses when fluids are flowing optimally. Water is the best hydrator, followed by barley tea and parsley juice/tea.
  • Breathe protectively Shallow breathing cannot supply oxygen like deep breathing. The more rhythmic and deep the breathing throughout the day, the more the body can withstand flu vitality.
  • Wear clothing that protects. Don’t wear clothes for warm weather in the winter. Don’t overdress in overheated spaces. Don’t over-shiver (shivering is a normal reaction to cold, but over-shivering means the shivering has gone on for too long or the intensity of the cold is too much for your body).
  • Stay active. Keep exercising and moving throughout the winter months.
  • Sleep the proper amount for your body. The body requires enough sleep to fortify against invading germs. A weary body struggles against powerful flu viruses.

Don’ts

  • Don’t skip any of the tips in the Do’s list!

Extra Tips

  • Nutritious foods offer extra protection. Consume foods that build your resistance to germs. (See “Flu Protection: What to Eat”.)
  • An optimistic attitude offers extra protection.
  • The emotion, contentment, offers extra protection.

Eating to be Fine

tomato-sorrel-salad

Food is SO confusing. We want it to taste good. We want it to be appealing. And, oh yea, we want it to nourish us.

Actually, many of us forget about the nourishing part of food and focus on the tastiness. Delicious is the main word, not nutritious.

Tasty satisfies for the moments the food is in the mouth, but once it has been swallowed, tasty becomes irrelevant. Nutritional value becomes key.

If the food was tasty and nutritious, the taste buds, digestive system, and body are satisfied. If the food was tasty but devoid of nutritional value, the taste buds were satisfied, but the body feels betrayed.

Our bodies can’t understand why we would insert food that harms us. The body then has to process the harmful foods as best it can. Continuous consumption of harmful foods leads to mutiny by the body—diabetes, diverticulitis, stomachaches, constipation, inflammation, and blockages, among other ailments.

Eating to be fine means putting the body’s health first: eating an apple rather than an apple fritter; saying no to cola with the meal; ordering whole grain items from the menu to encourage restaurants to provide whole grain options; sharing dessert rather than consuming the whole thing; ignoring marketing attempts to get you to buy highly processed foods.

Eating to be fine adds years to life and wellness to years. Feeling good beats a momentary taste pleasure hands down!

The Healing Attitude

girl-stomach-pain-clipart-cliparthut-free-clipart-KuL2pW-clipart

Healing is tricky. It is not available to those who use illness to attain a goal. Many use illness to keep from participating in life. Look at the people you know who are ill and consider the last sentence. It does not apply to all, but to many.

When we are ill, we should take the necessary precautions and mending steps. Mending steps include sleep, hydration, nutrient intake, and positive focus. Staying away from others when contagious. Staying away from temptations. Staying away from activity. Staying away from over-excitement, over-exertion and over-indulgence (not meaning overindulgence of food, rather overindulgence of self-pity or self-over-focus [I’m-too-unwell-to-deal-with-life-and-think-of-others]).

Healing can be quick or languishing depending on our age, attitude, previous physical condition, and determination, and of course, on the healing issue. Feeling determined to be well is very important. Any trace of benefit from the illness or condition can slow the healing process. Even a well meant show of sympathy can slow the healing. Best to heal with as little sympathy as possible. Attitude influences on all levels-physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. A happy attitude greatly enhances healing.

Healing and wellness are possible when we truly want them!

 

The magic pill

Post 106 personal resistance

I have been guiding people towards balance through Energy Guidance Complete. This work involves people making changes in their habits and in their choices. This approach requires a positive spirit and willingness to change.

When people apply the wisdom of Energy Guidance Complete, their symptoms abate and their goals become reachable.

Here’s the amazing aspect of my work–and by amazing I mean that I am shaking my head with disbelief–when presented with healing that requires a willing spirit and desire for health, too many choose to remain afflicted and floundering. Too many want me to say a magic sentence and all will be right for them. Too many want me to tell them a secret cure to fix all ails. Too many want to be well without changing a thing. Too many want to be svelte without putting down the fork and stuffing their mouths with worthless and damaging edible things that masquerade as food. Too many prefer to give their kids a pill rather than make them eat breakfast every morning. Too many want ease.

Promises of an easy life come from marketing blurbs and diet supplements. Real life requires investment in proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and daily exercise. And community service and time for friends.

The magic pill is loving oneself and living a life that exudes this love. This magic pill comes with the following instructions:

  1. Keep a positive attitude and complain less.
  2. Breathe more deeply and stand straighter.
  3. Acknowledge ability to be well and pursue wellness.

Energy Guidance Complete is spiritually guided healing that requires each person to invest in themselves. With spiritual guidance amazing changes can happen, but taking part by the individual causes the amazing changes to become reality.
