Looking at the substances we ingest (food, medical, recreational, cosmetic) from an energetic perspective can help us make sense of the reactions and symptoms we experience as a result.

Everything we ingest or slather on ourselves will be absorbed by the body and distributed throughout our internal systems by the blood. All substances affect us in three ways: 1) they will supply nutrients that the body uses for its upkeep; 2) they will provide some type of medical modifier (positive or negative) that will directly affect a specific aspect of our body; and 3) will have a raising, maintaining, or lowering effect on our overall energy level.

For example, if we take an herb or drug for its medical modifying properties without considering its overall effect on our energy level, we may suffer negatively from side effects. This perspective explains the wide range of side effects that can result from a particular medication and why it will “work” for some people and not for others. The variable is the individual and unique energy level of each person. When the energy level is considered and allowed to help direct treatment, side effects can be eliminated or greatly reduced and a much more effective solution found.

Why Do You Eat What You Do?

How and why we eat boils down to the interplay between our physiological condition and what food is available to us. Whether we eat to sustain our health or simply to satisfy hunger has a huge impact on our long term health prospects. How we choose to eat in our youth has a major impact on our heath beginning in middle age. Are we simply an organic boiler that we can feed any kind of fuel and expect to stay healthy? The answer is no. There are qualitative as well as quantitative considerations.

Eating simply to eliminate hunger was reasonably safe as recently as 60 years ago. However, the introduction of refined foods, sugar, chemical additives, and eventually a world-wide distribution network (that allows foods from any climatic zone to be available anywhere any time of year) has made that an increasingly dangerous proposition.

As generations of poor eaters come and go, the negative effects of eating without considering the effects of food on our energy and internal systems results in poor health at an increasingly younger age. The baby boomers (those born between the 1940s and 1960s) were the first generation to be exposed to the bulk of the artificial ingredients and chemical laced consumer products that we currently come into contact with every day of our lives. The younger generations will face a prodigious minefield of health harming substances for their entire lifespan.

The explosion of degenerative diseases in the last twenty years is the direct result of the contamination of our food and living environment. 1.6 million new cancer cases a year, 50,000 new cases of heart disease, 1.4 million new cases of diabetes, 50,000 new cases of lung disease, the list goes on, and that is just in the U.S.A. (Data from the CDC website.)

If we don’t start looking out for ourselves, paying attention to what we put in, on, and around our bodies, the greatest generation will be the last relatively healthy one.

Energy and Emotions

The energy level that we sustain (when compared to our originating energy pattern at birth) will create certain types of mental thought patterns and emotional responses. For example, excessively high energy will result in low patience, frustration, anger, rage, closed mindedness, elitism, paranoia, refusal to submit to authority, and sociopathic and homicidal tendencies; whereas low energy will result in timidity, fearfulness, lack of enthusiasm, depression, low self esteem, insecurity, easily brought to tears, lack of independence or self respect, and suicidal tendencies. By altering our energy level, we can change how we mentally and emotionally react to everyday situations and build a personality of our own choosing.

Environmental Impact On Our Immune System

Do your children get sick at the drop of a hat? Do you feel weak, foggy, or can't get enough sleep? How about suffering frequent headaches, stuffy nose, or allergies? Have you recently moved or renovated? The answer to your family's health problems may be chemical contamination of their living environment.

Newly constructed homes or apartments have building materials with chemicals that have not had time to off-gas as older residences have. Any repairs or remodeling also use new materials with fresh chemical ingredients that will evaporate into the air trapped inside closed doors and windows, contaminating the air we breathe.  Sheetrock, carpeting, paint, particle board, chip board, construction glue, paneling, new furniture, and insulation can all contribute to an air borne toxic brew. Some construction chemicals can take many years to evaporate to the point they can no longer affect our health.

Our body can filter out these chemicals but the process will depress our immune system to the point we become more susceptible to infections or sickness, tire easily, our sinuses plug up, and we get frequent headaches  Children are particularly vulnerable as their immune systems are underdeveloped.

Keep the windows and doors open as much as possible to allow the chemicals to be vented and diluted with fresh air. Buy a good living space air filter and keep it well maintained. Eliminating as many immune system depressing foods as possible will support the body by keeping it supplied with plenty of energy, as it works to filter out the chemical contaminants.
