We Are Rebuilding Our Houses
For something as crucial as rebuilding our bodies, it seems almost bizarre that we would not study the building materials before we bought them and used them.
If you are going to build a house, it seems you would take the time to find out what were appropriate building materials, not just choose the cheapest, or the most readily available.
We are rebuilding our houses – where we live – every time we put food into our bodies.
Think about it like that. It could help you to make better choices.
What are the best materials?
Do you want to live in a mansion or a dump?
How do we use these materials?
And how does the body turn these materials into tissue, bones, teeth, brain etc.
First Things First
The first thing you need to be aware of is the quality of materials you
Plants were designed as our body’s energy source. When we eat them, we transfer that energy into our bodies.
Dead processed food can only transfer death into our bodies.
The fresher and more alive the food is, the more vibrational energy is going to be transferred to us. The more energy the body has the more it has the ability to maintain health and repair itself.
Raw living foods need to be the cornerstones and building blocks of our bodies.
Sunrider foods are the highest form we can get of raw living foods.
Sunrider foods make it easy, fun and achievable to make major changes in the way we think about food and health.
Changing is fun, if you have the right attitude-and the right information.
When you are conscious and aware of what you are doing, you can create miracles in your life and your health.
Benjamin Franklin said. ”When you are finished changing, you are finished.”
We do not want to accept defeat. We have the power to change our
circumstances and improve our health. Everyone can! Starting now and getting better every day.
There is good news and bad news about changing.
The good news is, you can totally change the way you feel.
The bad news is that it takes a real commitment and some serious work.
The good news about the bad news is, it can be a lot of fun, and absolutely satisfying if you take it on as a journey of self mastery.
How well our body interfaces with the food we provide as building materials is our main key to health. The system that does that interface is our digestive system.
It is so abused in America that the top over-the-counter drugs people buy now are digestive aids. Pills to help digest foods, pills to neutralize stomach acid, pills to force the rotting mass through the colon.
We do not understand food. We are almost totally ignorant of the digestion process. Just knowing what goes on in digestion, should help you to make better choices.
The areas of concern are:
- Quality of foods-how they are grown, harvested and stored.
- Preparation of food-should be eaten raw, for maximum benefit.
- Digestion and Elimination of wastes.
Digestion and Elimination
The digestive system is an incredible intricate system. It is self running and repairs itself at a very fast speed. It is our front line system that deals with the outside influences coming into the body.
Think of it as an approximately 30 foot tube that runs from the lips to the rectum. Its job is to turn the materials we eat into microscopic particles that the cells use to run the entire body. Also, to separate and dispose of things that do not belong in the body.
When we eat, what we eat is propelled through the
body by muscular contraction called peristalsis. As it travels through, the food is broken down into its components. These components are to be used by the cells to rebuild, repair and cleanse themselves.
The whole process of the digestive system begins with a decision.
We need to decide what kind of performance we want, what kind of energy output we want, how long we want to keep our bodies.
What are the trade-in options for a broken down body?
How much money you will need to save for the years when you cannot take care of yourself, if you decide poorly?
Basically, what quality of food we are going to opt for?
Do not think that pricey foods are the measure of good food. A lot of the time, the more the foods cost, the more handling, processing and additives are involved.
Always choose the organic, close to nature fruits and vegetables, that can provide the body with the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats and carbohydrates that it needs.
Eating is the act of choosing your fuel and starting it through the system. It involves an educated mind and starts with your mouth.
Digestion occurs mainly in the mouth, stomach and small intestines with the help of the liver, gallbladder and pancreas. This involves breaking down of fibers and chemicals into microscopic particles.
Next is absorption. This is where the food is taken out of the small intestine into the bloodstream to be delivered to the cells. The systems mostly involved are the small intestine, liver, bloodstream, lymph and cells.
Then, assimilation – the act of nutrients entering the cells.
Lastly, when nutrients are assimilated, an equal amount of waste needs to be eliminated. The organs involved in this are the kidneys, liver, bowels, skin, lungs, and the lymph system.
Basically the entire body is involved in the process of digestion and elimination. All the organs playing an integral part.
