Ancient Epi-Cures for Your Body and Mind
The Brain is tied to the Nervous System which is tied directly to the Respiratory System.
This links to the Integumentary System (skin), that’s why the Skin breathes and you have feeling (nerves) all over your body.
All of this links to the Heart and Circulatory System that links to the Endocrine Reproductive System, that is directly linked to the Digestive and Excretory System that is directly tied to the Lymphatic Immune System, that is all held together and strengthened by the Muscular/Skeletal System.
From Top to Bottom, from Outer to Inner from Front to Back your body functions as:
“ONE SYMBIOTIC UNIT THAT ALL WORKS TOGETHER. THERE IS NOTHING SEPARATE FROM ANOTHER… IT’S A MEDICAL/PHARMACEUTICAL LIE TO TEACH OTHERWISE.”
Nowhere is the efficacy of FASTING and WHOLE FOODS more evident than in problems related to the brain and nervous system. Stress, anxiety, tension and depression are intimately connected with most illnesses. With the high level of stress now being experienced in our society, consumers are realizing that ‘adaptogenic’ wholefoods and medicinal plants assist in the prevention of many of the stress related ailments that are engulfing our people who live in ‘developed countries’. We are told that poor mood, depression and low energy have become epidemic in the US and other developed countries. Why is this so?
There are literally tens of millions of American men, women and children that suffer from some level of emotional disturbance. Although day to day stress can be considered a precipitating factor, there are multiple studies in the medical literature indicating that whole food nutrition is critical to maintaining emotional health. Stress, anxiety, tension and depression are intimately connected with most illnesses.
The WHOLE FOOD FARMACIST finds success accelerated by teaching whole food treatments as nature’s medicine to free the body from the vicious cycle of interference from worry and nervousness that so often takes its toll on otherwise healthy systems.
