Once in a while you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right ― Robert Hunter

Hello! Happy Spring!

A while ago, I woke up thinking about the story of the Three Little Pigs.
It made me think about how it might also be a metaphor for our bodies being our house. Therefore, because you only get one body to live in, it is the best real estate you can invest in.

What are we building our houses out of? Cells make up tissues, tissues make up organs, organs make up systems and systems make up us! By the time we have system damage we have had enough cell damage to cause a malfunction in the system.

We actually are what we eat on a cellular level.

However, we are also an accumulation of emotional stress and physical stress.

DD Palmer, the father of chiropractic, said way back in 1895 that spinal misalignments (subluxations) and subsequent problems are due to 3 factors:

* Emotional Stress
* Physical Stress
* Chemical Stress

Ways to reduce Emotional, Physical and Chemical stress in our lives:

Emotional Stress

There are more recommendations than ever all over the internet on ways to reduce emotional stress. Over the years I have developed a huge list. Here are some current suggestions that I am listening to and reading. Of course, nothing replaces a trained therapist or psychiatrist when you need it.

Podcasts and books:
Dr. Joe Dispenza -books
Michael A. Singer’s – podcast
Letting Go The Greatest Secret – podcast

Physical Stress

The chair you sit in all day long for 8 hours should be as good for your spine as the bed you sleep in for 8 hours.

How we sit: Proper sitting posture at a computer
Best Ergonomic Chairs – As opposed to sitting in bed, a soft couch or a kitchen chair

Chemical Stress

The digestive system is a chemical breakdown of food we ingest. The digestive system is comprised of organs whose purpose is to convert the food we eat into smaller absorbable nutrients to be used for energy. A body functions even better with sunlight and clean unadulterated food which includes chlorophyll from green vegetables.
There are chemicals everywhere and reducing them by knowing where they come from is essential.

Xenoestrogens: Do you know what ‘xenoestrogens’ are? – Dr. Judy Roth

Here is an Interesting article about energy tying all this together:
E=mc2: Everything is Energy – why do we continue to ignore the energetic truth?

As Dr Eunice Minford MBChb, MA, FRCS Ed. Consultant Surgeon, Northern Irelands, the author of the article states “Therefore, in E=mc2 we have E for energy, for light which is also energy and m for mass which is also just a way of carrying energy and is ultimately not solid but a mass of vibrating particles and space, all of which are energy. In essence, this equation is therefore simply saying ‘everything is energy’.

The road to better health and maintenance of a healthy body requires a look at the whole body from a cellular perspective emotionally, physically and chemically. The ability to create healthy quality tissue depends on it.
