What Is Healthy?

How do we define healthy foods? I define foods as healthy if they cause no net decrease in our health. These foods must support our health and build us up in such a way as to provide sufficient energy and nutrients to maintain our internal systems. Our internal systems require a certain level of energy to function properly. If those requirements are not met, our health begins to suffer.

The confusing issue is that these requirements are largely unique to the individual. Compounding the confusion is the fact that our social and commercial definition of what is healthful changes over time.

We know what we feel like when we are healthy and when we are sick, but most of us, at one time or another, don’t have the faintest clue as to whether something is healthful or not. At first, somebody must tell us the difference—and herein lies the big problem. Most of our ancestral information on how and what to eat and how to live our lives in a healthy way has been run over by the fast-paced and prepackaged life we live. We have lost touch with the earth and what is naturally healthy; we can’t even get that individual information from our intuition or experiences anymore, as our taste preferences have been trained to crave health-damaging, even deadly, foods.

So, we are left to figure it out on our own, reading this or that report, claiming health benefits for all types of products. Additionally, what’s healthy for one person may not be healthy for another. If we eliminate the questions of quality and nutrients, what remains is the individual energy requirement of each person. We can buy the finest quality organic, locally sourced, family-farm-raised, grass-fed beef, confident that it is perfectly healthful. If our energy pattern is such that we need the high energy of beef, then we will thrive on it. However, if our energy pattern clashes with beef, if the beef gives us too much energy, then it will not be healthy for us. Food is healthy if it a) harmoniously meshes with our energy pattern, b) is minimally processed and free of health-harming additives and chemicals, and c) provides the nutrients our body needs.

We can begin to build our personal database of what is healthy or not by observing the early warning symptoms that our body and mind exhibit, and by attempting to correlate the symptoms with our recent consumptive habits. These symptoms (body odor, runny nose, aches and pains, skin issues, infections, constipation, diarrhea, gas, impatience, anger, depression, etc.) alert us to imbalances or deficiencies that can be addressed in a timely manner to avoid illness and disease in the future.

New Relationships

Become a weepy, whiny, depressed, co-dependent mess several months into a new relationship? Regular sex is the culprit. If you don’t replace your energy loss caused by all the new sexual activity quickly enough, your energy stores are gradually drained, compromising your immune system and negatively affecting your mental state. The issue is compounded by the typical social habits associated with romantic courtship that also drain your energy such as alcohol and drug use, and less sleep.

The issue is easily solved by rationing the sexual activity and cutting out all sweets, fruits, tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, and recreational drugs along with increasing your consumption of whole grains and/or red meat. A few good night’s sleep will also go a long way to rebuilding your energy, stamina, and healthy outlook on life.

Basics

The basic concept of the energy manipulation technique is that by being aware of our body’s energy level and quality we can prevent, diagnose, and cure physical and mental health issues. Our own actions (or inaction as the case may be) are largely to blame for most of our pain and suffering.

We cause our own health problems by allowing our energy to get too high or too low, or by allowing ourselves to be exposed to harmful substances such as recreational drugs and food additives to industrial and consumer chemicals.

The body must maintain a system-wide balance of energy as well as an individual balance in each organ or internal system. If an imbalanced condition is maintained for too long, illness, disease, and eventually death will occur. Our energy level and quality are directly affected by the substances we ingest or absorb through our environment.

The regenerative and immune systems are the two main functions of the body that assist in keeping ourselves healthy. The survival of these two critical systems depends entirely upon the energy we supply them, and in return are depended upon by all other systems and organs for their survival and operating efficiency.

Energy balance issues are communicated to us by what we have come to call “symptoms”. Everything from a runny nose to cancer is our own body warning us that corrective action is needed.

By controlling the energy we take into ourselves every day, we can support our internal energy in a positive way and prevent health issues from developing.

Our Children

The greatest gift we can give our children is a healthy diet when they are young. They may grow up and eventually discard any diet we impose, but by protecting them from chemical laden, nutritionally hollow, sugary, or salty foods their body has time to build a strong immune system and internal organs that will carry them well into old age. If we provide them with low quality adulterated foods when young their bodily functions are compromised and begin to break down at a much earlier age. By feeding them a fast food diet, we also teach them bad eating habits that will burden them for the rest of their lives.

It’s easy to fall into the habit of a poor diet raising children. With our fast-paced lifestyle and two income households there is usually little time to cook three meals a day, so pre-cooked and easily prepared convenience foods are hard to resist. Peer pressure to eat candy and junk food is ever present and virtually irresistible to young children through TV marketing. Day care and the public-school system where our children eat once or twice a day are more concerned with economy and profit than healthy food.

The scientific/medical community largely resist the obvious ill effects of a poor diet simply because it’s many aspects haven’t been scientifically proven. While this proof is being sought independently, food corporations are busy with their own propaganda studies that obfuscate the issues in their attempt to protect their profit and market share.

At the very least, most of the food we eat and feed our children should be food that supports health. Three times a day or more we are presented with an opportunity to sustain and even build our family’s health. We create our future health every time we put something in our mouths. Do we want a family that is addicted to the nutritionally hollow and destructive effects of fast food, junk food, and convenience food? Or do we want to provide our loved ones with unadulterated food that supports health and provides them with a healthy future?

Stiff Joints

Stiffness and loss of flexibility generally attributed to old age (that can start showing up as early as one’s 30’s) is largely a result of how we eat in our youth. Diets heavy in meat and salt create a perfect storm of dehydration which causes the muscles and joints to lose elasticity.

Any type of prepared meat (muscle) such as sausage, bacon, cold cuts, cured, smoked, jerky, and pre-marinated, inject tremendous amounts of salt into the body. Salt is used as a preservative, taste enhancer, and to cure meats (curing reduces the moisture in meat). Our body must draw moisture from cells in order to generate urine to flush excess salt out of our system. Also, the meat creates high energy and heat which contribute to the excess-salt-induced dehydrated condition.

By simply eating uncured meats and focusing on reducing salt intake, we can greatly reduce the amount of stiffness we experience in our later years. Eating more vegetables and fruits or eliminating meat altogether will greatly enhance our ability to curb the effects of long term dehydration.

Why Eat Healthy?

Why eat healthy? Why exercise, stay fit, cut out chemicals in the food we eat and pollution in our living environment? It’s so that we can remain active and self-sufficient in our old age. Plenty of people stay active until the day they die. They die of “natural causes”, no wasting away in a nursing home or in a hospital bed, their bodies slowly decomposing until their heart, liver, or lungs stop working. When the time comes, we can just go to sleep and not wake up.

If we take care of ourselves and support our health all our life, we can have this type of end-of-life scenario. If we are constantly eating things and doing things and living around things that destroy our body and mind, we will suffer the debilitating consequences of that life style in our old age.

Too Much Energy

An over-energized body attempts to relieve itself of excess energy through several avenues of elimination which inexorably follow one another if the previous stage is not successful. This pattern begins with physical or mental exertion, and then progresses through sex, substance abuse, illness, disease, and finally death.
