The human organism is a creature of nature. It is born of nature and does not thrive beyond specific natural conditions which support its metabolic function and physiological balance. Air, water, protein, mineral electrolytes, sunlight, exercise, and rest are so basic, and obviously necessary, that we assume that we have these things in adequate quantity and wholesome quality. However, this assumption often is incorrect.
Everybody's the same and everybody's different. If you want to know what your body needs to heal its currents of injury, what nutritional supplements support your high-energy resting state, what foods are good for you and which cause a reaction, and what else you may need to realize your full potential, contact us for a consultation.
Patterns of Adaptation
The human body's ability to adapt to less-than-optimal environmental conditions enables it to survive until conditions improve, but the adapted state is a lower energy state and creates problems of its own.
Survival or Thrival
The history of humanity in the earth is a record of its adaptation and survival. Recent events, however, have brought to human awareness the necessity of mutual support for the thrival of all people in the world community. This kind of cooperation for the highest health of all requires proper guidance for individual physical, physiological, and emotional well-being.
Health is an individual, personal responsibility. Caring for the bodymind must be our first priority. We cannot pay another or a company to ensure or insure our health. We must acquire honest and accurate information, retrieve our sensitivity to what the bodymind needs for balance, and apply these day-to-day. There is no alternative.
Abiding the Process
Being alive is a process. Stasis is inhibition of the process. As we move with the living process we can - we must -maintain balance. This balance, in its most sensitive and robust manifestation, is an aspect of the health we seek.
Balancing the Body
Abiding relative physiological balance is the goal, getting there is the problem. Under good environmental conditions growth and healing are continuous but require energy and raw materials. If these raw materials in their natural form aren't present genetic interpretation will be inaccurate and garbled.
Realizing Full Potential
We have tools to read and understand what the body-mind needs to realize its full potential. Using these tools with conventional research and laboratory analysis provides a multidimensional view of imbalance and a way to correct it. And, importantly, it can indicate which drugs or supplements are useful and necessary or useless and have harmful side-effects.
Food or Drug
Much of what we eat as food and consume as nutritional supplements have unwanted and unnoticed side-effects in the body that impact its immune system. Some highly recommended dietary supplements have a drug-effect in the body and do not support its full potential. We have tools to aid in distinguishing these.
Health Requires Awareness
Health is an abiding awareness of balance in the bodymind, moment-to-moment, not an end-state. It is guided by a perception of equanimity within and without. It requires attunement and union of mind and body. It cannot be outsourced.
If we want to correct our adapted state and thrive our style of living requires that we ingest certain nutritional supplements to counter-balance the stresses encountered in daily experience.
Context and Proportion
The confusion and misinformation concerning what nutritional supplements are needed, and in what amounts, may encourage one to reject the practice. The principle of context and proportion may be helpful in dispelling this discouragement.
Positive Current of Injury
In the bodymind, a positive current, where a positive current should not be, is the locus and identity of injury. In the bodymind's analog electrical system, all injuries - whether a bone fracture or an emotional hang-up - are qualitatively the same but quantitatively different.
All Medicine is Energy Medicine
Everything we do requires energy. We eat and drink to provide energy-producing cells the materials they need to make energy. The DC in the meningeal-perineural tissue is an energy conduit that radiates an energetic field. Immune reactions and adaptations require energy. Some "foods", and most drugs by virtue of their relative toxicity and side-effects, take energy from the bodymind. Proper food and medicine contribute to the bodymind's full potential.
