Increasingly, as if there is a “new” discovery parade for the latest cure-all, probiotics have come again to the forefront. As I read the varying articles and studies, I am struck by how far afield we have come from normal, common sense.
In order to maintain a healthy body, there is a tripod of health: body, mind, and spirit. Knock out one leg of that stool, and the stool topples over. Probiotics, diet, dietary supplements address only the “body” leg of the health tripod. So let’s start there. Get more details Kiến thức ăn chay
Anything taken externally, whether it is natural or medical (chemical or surgical) in support of the physical, has only ever been intended as temporary support until we have regained or achieved the necessary consciousness to support complete and perfect health; much as you might use a crutch to recover from a broken leg. When the leg is healed, we throw the crutch away as we should throw the supplements and medications away.
The body knows how to be well and healthy, as this is its natural and inherent state. Think of all the times you’ve had a cold, or the flu or a cut or bruise. They always go away. The body, created by Infinite Intelligence, does not need to know how to be well, but rather is always striving to return to health, its normal set-point. Our job, as a conscious human being, is to make the choices – all of our choices – that support Life. That is to say choices that are probiotic.
These choices, if we are living naturally and following our internal prompts, always feel good, fun, joyful, and delicious. The body, itself, tells us what it needs with respect to nutrition; and we, if we are listening and aware, then eat those foods. The body tells us when it is tired and needs rest; if we are listening and living naturally, we fall asleep and awaken refreshed. The body tells us when it is cold; and if we are listening, we go inside, don a coat or sit by the fire. The body tells us when we are full; if we are listening, we stop eating, pleasantly satiated. The body because of its Innate Intelligence – the Life Force that enlivens it, is constantly directing us if we are listening.
This same Innate Intelligence or Life Force is present in all living things: animal, vegetable and mineral. It quite simply is the “spirit” leg of the heath tripod. So it is essential that we pay attention to the still small voice within guiding us in all things, including health, always towards our good.
The “mental” component of the tripod is where all the trouble begins and ends. The human mind with its hubris and arrogance believes that it is the infinite intelligence rather than our spirit Infinite Intelligence (knowing). The human mind is what confounds and complicates everything, over-shouting the still small voice every chance it gets. The human mind will argue with the information of Innate Intelligence that we don’t have time to eat, or we can’t afford to eat healthy food, or that we don’t have time to be home resting. The human mind will argue that a vitamin supplement is a quick fix, that a “professional” knows more than I do; that in a decision between ethics and money, money wins. The human mind will tell you to stay in the job your hate, because the money is good; and it will tell you to take the “safe” road, because it is afraid and lives in the land of Lack. These are the decisions that we make every day that lead us into life styles and relationships that are as toxic to the body and chemicals are.
For example, as science attempts to unravel the secrets of good nutrition and health, they omit or ignore or discount the concept of Infinite Intelligence or Life Force, because they don’t understand It and cannot quantify It. Therefore, they believe that by isolating certain nutrients, that the benefits of that nutrient are complete in relationship to the biological body and cells. For example, scientists study, let’s say, Vitamin C. They isolate it out from its original state that it is found in, let’s say, an orange. They identify it by its chemical composition and name it Vitamin C of a certain type. Then a nutritional company or a drug company will duplicate that chemical complex and manufacture it synthetically and patent it. Why? Because you cannot patent the Vitamin C in an orange, but if you create your own synthetic clone of it, you can patent that and then sell it as “a vitamin supplement”. It’s about money; and the marketing is about making you believe – contrary to your own knowing and Innate Intelligence (common sense), that it’s better to buy the pill rather than simply eat the whole food, the orange. This whole process is the human mind process; not common sense, not Innate Intelligence, and not your Knowing.
This brings us back to the “body” portion of the health tripod. All the things we do to and for the physical body to maintain or to regain physical health. These things include medicine, alternative therapies, nutrition, supplements, and the food we eat.
So let’s go back to the clone of Vitamin C which is not Real Vitamin C. First of all, it has been separated out of its natural habitat of the orange and no longer has the synergistic benefits of all the other nutrients found within that Infinite Intelligence-created orange. The other nutrients within the orange were gathered together by Infinite Intelligence in the orange with the Vitamin C to work together one with the other – like a symphony shall we say. All together they release their blessings of nutrition to the consumer in a concert. One triggers the other, one enhances the other, and within the human body, they trigger certain enzymes or other mechanism to break it down and with nutritional perfection and elegant harmony are absorbed into the body where they nourish and sustains the cells, the fundamental building block of the body. This is the symphony of naturally occurring whole foods in the act of nourishing the living body. The clone has no idea of the music.
While it is not quite the stuff of Frankenstein for science to understand food and nutrition in relationship to the human body, it is when these elements are separated out from the Whole Picture and peddled to convey the same efficacy as the Real thing, which they cannot do. Recall for a minute the actual Frankenstein creation: he was patchwork parody of the Real human, not elegantly Real.
When these synthetically created nutritional clones are ingested into the Real body, the body in fact does not recognize them and either sloughs them off (every wondered why your urine is so bright yellow when you’re taking vitamin supplements ) or they are treated as toxins. If the body identifies them as toxins (foreign substance), it will attempt to eliminate it from the body or surround it with fat cells much like putting the bad guy into solitary confinement. [Did you ever wonder why we are so fat in such large numbers?] Seems to me, via common sense, my own Innate Intelligence just like yours, that the more toxins – synthetically/chemically produced foods (neo-nutrition) we consume, the more toxins the body is attempting to cope with and so produces the fat to surround and contain them to protect the vital organs of the body. The living body’s single imperative, after all, is to live. This is basic biology 101.
