I know this sounds crazy but your body and I had a little conversation last night over the phone and there are a few things your body wanted me to talk to you about. Your body told me that he/she has been trying to tell you for years with increased pain, fatigue, sickness, and mood swings that you are not treating him/her right or with respect but you still have not listened or changed and he/she is getting worn out.Your body feels neglected and feels bad that it does not have enough fuel or energy to let you have a full and productive life that you deserve. He/she said you have tried to do the right things many times but when you do not see change in a matter of a few days or weeks you give up and it takes longer then that for years of neglect and damage to heal. Your body told me he/she would really like you to make a lifestyle change forever!
Your body told me to keep up with all of the jobs requires you have to feed him/her good nutritious food and he/she requires you to be emotionally healthy as well. Without these two things he/she sends out signals to warn you that you are not doing what is required for him/her to work and function properly. Your body said with you being chronically ill this is even more important because somethings are not working the way they should so it takes MORE nutrition for him/her to work properly. The brain alone has about 100 billion nerve cells and when those nerves fire up, that impulse travels at about 170 miles per hour. Can you see how these nerves cells can get mixed up and cause pain when they do not have the proper nutrition to travel properly? The average human heart beats 3,000 million times in a lifetime, pumping 48 million gallons of blood, which travels 60,000 miles on its journey through the body every day. In the last 24 hours, you’ve breathed almost 24,000 times. In and out … in and out. Your body wanted me to tell you, “How do you keep expecting me to do my part to keep your wonderful soul here in this body if you do not do your part?”
Your body also wanted me to talk to you about the processed foods that you have been been consuming daily. Processed food is food in its most unnatural state. Your body said he/she is not able to metabolize the artificial and processed ingredients as he/she would foods in their normal state, and therefore he/she does not really know what to do with it once you eat it. Your body said he/she has to work 5 times as hard just to try and digest it and get all the toxins out of him/her and that is why you feel so tired and sluggish. Your body said “How can I give you energy if I have to use what little fuel you give me just to function? I can’t! I work hard for you everyday but I can only give what I get.”
Your body also wanted me to talk to you about how you treat yourself. He wanted to tell you what a wonderful person you are and that you are a miracle. When you are hard on yourself and do not love yourself for the wonderful person you are it lowers his/her immune system making him/her more spectacle to infection and other harmful invasions to him/her. He/she wanted to let you know to take time out for yourself and to be kind to yourself. He/she said when people say things that you do not agree with even when it is ill willed or with bad intent it has nothing to do with you but has to do with the things the other person might be dealing with or their own insecurities and it is not worth it to let it get to you and make you upset. When you do it makes him/her weak and exhausted.
Your body wanted me to tell you Thank YOU for taking the time to listen and hopefully with some compromises we can both work together to be as healthy as we can possibly be both physically and emotionally.
