Our emotions can effect our attitudes about life. It is important to understand our emotions and be able to control them. Just reading a book may not always change our attitudes. We have to apply what we learn. Some people like myself take awhile to learn or comprehend what truth really is about.
Sometimes finding something or someone we can believe in and trust will help to shape our destiny. For myself. at the age of thirty-three, Christ changed my life in a very real way. Studying the Bible and listening to good preachers that adhere to the teaching of the Bible has helped to keep me on track.
Although there are times that I have done some very foolish things and ended up paying the consequences for them. Everything we do has consequences whether good or bad. God provides doctors to help us when we are sick, but most of them were not taught preventive medicine.
They treat us after we are sick! Now in this day and age it seems there is more awareness of preventive medicine and care. For example: Chiropractors who align the spine in order for our bodies to heal themselves by relieving pressures along the spine.
This gives the body a chance to heal itself. Homeopathic doctors can help many times with medication that is not full of side effects and danger to the body. The kind that helps the body to heal itself.
Reflexology is another great means of opening up the bodies abilities to heal itself. A manipulation of the feet and/or hands can effect every area of our body. All nerve ends are in the feet and hands and can be manipulated to help the circulation to every part of our body.
Acupuncture is another form of medicine. Personally, I have never tried acupuncture, but have heard of people who were helped by it. Another doctor is the Naturopath, a method of treating illness or disease without drugs or surgery, using proper foods, heat, exercise and massage to aid natural healing.
In my lifestyle, I try to stay as close to nature as possible with my foods. I buy organic food as much as possible, stay away from margarine (unsalted butter is much healthier and tastes better). You can add sea salt to your butter if necessary. Sea salt is much better for you than table salt.
My philosophy is that if it is man made it is not fit to eat or put into my body. Our body is made up of enzymes and cells that feed the body. As we get older we need to make sure we are getting all the enzymes and cell food that we need to nourish our bodies.
One of the things that destroys the enzymes in the food we cook is the microwave. I do not own a microwave. Cooking itself will destroy a lot of the enzymes. Raw food retains the most, freezing is the next best. Canning and cooking foods too much can destroy the enzymes, too.
Our attitudes and emotions are effected by what we put into our body, whether it be food, vitamins, herbs or whatever. Sometimes it takes trial and error to find the right ones for our needs as we are all different in nature. God made each of us unique!
