Do you avoid gluten or something else? The reason I ask is really pretty simple.
I hear this statement, “I’m gluten free” a lot. What follows is even more amazing…see if you agree!
I usually ask how long they’ve been gluten free and how’s it working out for them and we just generally converse about what’s going on with their health in general.
What always comes up is this…I feel so much better without gluten but the minute I eat anything with gluten in it, I’m so sick or I have to run to the bathroom immediately, or something else.
Hmmmm….do you think that you can avoid gluten (or something else) for the rest of your life so as not to set off an attack of some kind?
What if I proposed something else? Would you be willing to listen and learn what needed to be done in order to heal your body?
You do realize that it’s quite possible for your body to heal don’t you?
I practice the belief that our body, given the right tools, knows how to heal ourselves from the inside out.
This creation that is our body is so unique that everything runs like clockwork unless of course a monkey wrench gets thrown into the mix.
Monkey wrenches typically are the processed foods that we consume a lot of, the toxic environment we live in, the toxins put onto our skin via most commercial lotions and potions we call skincare and haircare.
Even if you eat “healthy” and don’t properly prepare your foods, you’ll have issues.
Most nuts, beans, seeds and grains need to be soaked or sprouted before we consume them. Because so much hybridized wheat is in so much of the foods we consume on a regular basis, it’s no wonder we have belly bloat, etc.
So if the body knows how to heal itself, why doesn’t it, you might ask?
Great question…it goes back to a couple of things.
The body is miraculous in what it can do.
Inflammation is a key player both good and bad. When you cut yourself, the red cross comes out to take care of any foreign invaders to keep out harmful bacteria and aids in healing.
The bad side of inflammation is that when the body is invaded by foreign invaders constantly, the body is under constant attack and now too much inflammation happens and all kinds of things happen, from diabetes, heart disease, ADD, ADHD, auto immune diseases, etc.
How does the body get invaded so badly? Leaky Gut Syndrome is a HUGE player. When the gut lining (small intestine) leaks because of over abuse by the foods and toxins we consume, large food particles are allowed to pass through the walls of the intestine, causing the body to see these as foreign invaders and thinks its under attack.
Our bodies need some sense of order and not kaoss. It needs the right arsenal or toolbox of healing.
It’s all quite possible, as I’ve stated before, you just first of all have to be willing to address the issues. Maybe its realizing for the first time that you really don’t feel well.
Maybe it’s addressing the fact that as we age we aren’t meant to have so many aches and pains. That’s NOT normal. We aren’t supposed to be depleted of our energy. We aren’t supposed to be taking so many medications that we have to have a calendar of events to keep them all straight.
What if…you allowed your body to heal, you became gluten tolerant or dairy tolerant or some other kind of tolerant?
What would life look and feel like? I want to hear your comments below.
