Healing is part of what the human body was designed to do. You don’t have to tell your body to heal, it is as automatic as breathing. When damage occurs due to disease or trauma, messages are sent instantly via the central nervous to the brain, which immediately begins the process of healing.
At the moment the miracle of healing begins, an amazing number of processes go into action. Your immune system is activated sending killer T-cells and microphages, or white blood cells, to the source of the disease or the area of damage. Heart rate goes up, blood flow increases, inflammation begins, and even hormones such as cortisol and dopamine are activated. Even something as small as a splinter in your finger can cause histamine production.
Yes, your body is an amazing creation with some of the most incredible response mechanisms ready at a moment’s notice. Once the healing process begins, your body will immediately send nutrients to the damaged area to make repairs. If you are bleeding, it will begin another amazing process of clotting your blood to decrease blood loss. If you are attacked by a pathogen, the killer T-cells and white blood cells will begin to hunt down the foreign proteins or other contaminants so they can destroy and remove them from your body.
The question is Are you ready when a disease or trauma happens? Do you have a reserve of the most important nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, and E? Just as important are the minerals that are absolutely necessary to repair the damage, minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and copper in your reserves. Overall, in order to heal, your body needs a supply of 16 vitamins, 74 minerals and trace elements, 12 amino acids, 3 essential fatty acid, and a lot of protein.
Ever wonder why two people can be injured or catch a virus and one will heal very quickly without complications and the other may have to be hospitalized or die? According to Dr. Joel Wallach, the difference can be as simple as one having a surplus of all the nutrients necessary for healing and the other a deficiency of those same nutrients. Some people develop cancer and others, even though they are exposed to the same environment, never develop cancer.
Healing is something your body knows how to do, but without the raw materials that are necessary to make the repairs or fight the infestation, the healing process will fail. If part of your home is destroyed by a tornado and you call a contractor to make the repairs, what will they need to restore your home? Once they assess the damage, they will make a list of the materials that are necessary to make the repairs. Without the materials, your home cannot be made whole again. Your body is no different.
Another thing you need to be aware of is that your body is organic. It requires organic material to make the necessary repairs. Not one cell of your body is synthetic; therefore, the drugs your doctor may prescribe when you are injured or become diseased can only treat the symptoms. Drugs cannot be used by your body to make the repairs. Drugs can ease your pain, stop nausea, decrease bleeding, and even calm you down, but they cannot be used to patch you up or complete the healing process.
Yes, God designed your body to heal. It is, however, your responsibility to make sure you are getting the appropriate organic materials to repair at a cellular level. My wife and our children have been supplementing our diets with the highest quality all-natural supplements for most of our lives. Even in our sixties, we are not dependent on the medical profession. Our energy is great, aches and pains are minimal, we don’t suffer from allergies or sinus problems; we run five businesses and really love life because our overall health for our age is great.
Now that you understand that all healing is dependent on nutrients, doesn’t it make sense to start a nutritional program that supports your overall health? As we age it becomes even more necessary. As we age our ability to maintain a youthful appearance, stamina, and overall health will decline if we are nutritionally deficient.
If you are one of those people who are not supplementing your diet, please consider starting a basic support program called, Overall-Health Combo. It is a combination of two easy to take supplements, MSM+C and Ultimate Fruit & Veggie. A daily serving of each will naturally help with energy, pain, focus, concentration, and quality of life.
