Wouldn't It Make Sense to Understand the Functions of Food?

Food is meant to FUEL the functioning of your body.  Wouldn't it make sense to understand the FUNCTIONS of the food?

Why are so many diagnosed diseases directly related to nutrition and yet we don't discuss food as first line therapy?  When healthy food and nourishment knowledge can be used to sustain and build healthy bodies, it would make sense that we would learn the very valuable information that food and plants contain.  We should know what food does inside our bodies, how each food functions, and helps our bodies to function.

How to Change the World With One Thought

We humans, it seems, have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day.  But according to some research, as many as 98% of them are exactly the same as we had the day before.  Talk about creatures of habit!  Even more significant, 80% of our thoughts are negative!

How Your Senses Make You Feel Better: Being Mindful To Be Mindful

The goal has been to STOP the multitasking training since birth and get real about being involved exactly and only on the task at hand.  I've been using my senses to involve every part of me, which is a great way to create memories, enjoy the experience more, glean more information, remember more, and connect the experience appropriately to how my nerves feel.  These sensory "cues" are what tells the vagus nerve how to respond...whether in preparation for stress and fight, or to remain calm and maintain the body.  80% of the efferent fibers of the Vagus Nerve come FROM THE GUT!

Digest With Your EARS For Better Digestive Health: Why the Ears Impact How Well You Use Your Food

We must move the body into the Parasympathetic phase before eating and then stay there, being mindful during our meal so that the body is focused on the job at hand.  When we do so, we can assimilate our nutrients better, produce balanced acidity to break foods down, energize the body, and not cause stress and inflammation in the gut.  In short, everything works better.  Taking time to prepare the body for food and digestion goes a long way towards your experience of health.  

Continuing Education

We eat too much, eat too often, eat for taste, cravings, or emotions.  We eat foodstuffs, and too many congestors, too much of the wrong and not enough of the right.  We don't know enough about food, we don't digest well and we don't understand food as medicine.  No wonder we have the health concerns we do!

"I felt in such a PRISON with restrictive up and down dieting.  I wanted better health, but I wasn't getting it anywhere.  Nourishment makes so much sense.  I loved how I was led through the lessons and could apply the information on my own, right away. It was SO easy!"
