I am inviting you to embrace the miracle of your body.
I am always looking for ways to inspire and motivate clients and students in my classes to want to make healing changes in their lives, healing changes that will last a lifetime. I want you to realize that you can change any lifestyle habit into a powerful healthy and healing choice if you truly desire to do so.
I love explaining to people the impact food and lifestyle habits have on cellular health. When we realize the intrinsic effects we have on our own health we often are more inclined to do things differently, more healthful choices.
The miracle of the human body has always fascinated me. I remember watching my first birth as a nursing student. I was awestruck and in love with everything about it. 32 years later I still feel that way about the creative power of living beings. We have an egg that gets fertilized by a sperm creating a 1 cell being. This one cell goes on to split and divide millions and millions of times to create:
every cell, tissue, organ, and organ system in this new human life,
the amniotic sac and fluid, and
the umbilical cord!
Sometimes that one cell does a completely crazy thing and splits in half in the early process and creates 2 human beings and all of the above extras (yes, identical twins!). This can happen, in very rare instances, to create identical quadruplets and more!
This whole process is amazing, miraculous, a true breath taking and awe inspiring feat of biology. Relax and close your eyes. I want you to immerse yourself in the magnificence of this. Now I want you to think about all the other processes your marvelous body does every day:
- digestion and elimination
immune responses 24-7
sensory input and neuro- analyzation so you can feel, smell, hear, see, and taste
detoxification of everything that comes into your body
movement of nutrients, innate chemicals, lymph fluid, oxygen and gasses throughout your body
filtering the blood to create urinary waste
manufacturing and delivering feel good hormones to the brain
movement of your body about your life
manufacturing and delivering hundreds and hundreds of enzymes, hormones, and other biological chemicals to every cell of your body (when and where needed)
Truly, this list could go on forever. What I want to impress upon you is the amazingness, awesomeness, the marvel of your entire being.
When we are truly mesmerized at the extraordinary being we humans are (all beings on this planet are extraordinary but I want to focus on humans to turn you onto caring for you!) we are more inclined to want to better care for ourselves and make the commitment to lifestyle changes that will prevent and heal disease.
Knowing what a miracle each and every bodily process is... don't you just want to take whole food and whole health care of you? Your body will shape shift into this healthy, vibrant being... I promise!
Please share your thoughts and feelings on the Marvel of the Human Body, the Marvel of You and how this inspires you to take better care... the best care of you!
