You are designed, programmed, and destined for health subject to any limitations at birth. You can use your intellect as an ally is improving your health. Remember that the power of restoration lies within and its genius is at work at all times.
Programming the intellect for well-being
The perfect operational effectiveness and innate intelligence of the body must be obvious by now. Learning to trust it completely, minimising any tinkering and second-guessing, and supplying it with the essentials conditions for health must be our top priority. Overwhelming the body with toxic fare, foreign items and poisonous liquids mis-labelled as ‘food and drink’, the administration of drugs and a plethora of anti-vital practices amount to gross interference. The majority of these are habitual and stem from wrong intellectual programming, deliberately misleading propaganda, and blind acceptance of prevailing norms or traditions as correct.
Breaking bad habits is not easy. They were forged with deliberate practice and continuous repetition and reinforced by familiar environment and lack of significant challenge from one’s social circle. Often it is required to take an individual away from the mould where the habits have been developed and indulged and place them temporarily in a pristine environment permitting only good habits. Furthermore, an orchestrated, controlled environment shared with others often creates memorable, even enjoyable experiences. Hence, a health retreat making natural living and periods of fasting practicable is an excellent way to re-program oneself for a lifetime of well-being. The new levels of vibrancy enjoyed during such a holiday are often sufficient to empower the individual to make the temporary practices lifetime habits.
For those who have strong motivation and are self-reliant and self-sufficient, merely obtaining the correct knowledge may be enough to establish them firmly on the path to Healthville. Developing strong intellectual conviction in the benefits of the new behaviours and the harms of the old ones is a powerful tool for creating motivation.
The power within
It is important to realise that living organisms are self-directing, self-sufficient, self-maintaining, self-healing entities, conceived with the necessary programming for joyous and vibrant existence. The very same power is responsible for growth, maintenance as well as repair and healing. It is evident that under normal conditions growth and maintenance come from within, then why the erroneous assumption that in dis-ease repair and healing can come from without.
Every intervention in the form of ‘medicinal’ drugs/herbs or structural interventions, with but a few exceptions, is massively detrimental. Even if apparently ‘successful’ in making the symptoms disappear, the cost to the living organism is one of decreased vitality and shortened life-span. Accept the fact that taking a drug never solves the problem and never cures. At best it masks the symptoms by blocking natural pain and/or inflammation responses, which has the sole purpose of restoring health. At worst, it overburdens the body, which has to get rid of the exogenous toxin, and damages all tissues it contacts.
Healing is an unceasing and continuous, exclusively innate power of the organism. Identify and go beyond all limiting programs that prevent you from realising this liberating truth.
"Tis better to be ignorant than to know so much that isn't so."
Transcend the imprisoning influences of surrounding propaganda, break the chains of social norms and accepted habits. Learn to reason for yourself, be acutely aware of your own body and witness for yourself the unfoldment of its miraculous powers. Forget the lazy ‘but everyone does it’ excuse and seek truth with open mind and arms. Test the validity of your acquired knowledge by putting it into practice and observing the results with objectivity. The truth of vibrant health and vigorous living become self-evident in the light of the willingness to let go of old burdensome intellectual baggage.
Life’s engineering and architectural genius
The building of a complex human being from a microscopic ovum is an engineering and architectural feat that dwarfs all human achievement to date. The astounding precision and operational consistency of the millions of visible and invisible, conscious and unconscious body-mind functions is awe-inspiring. The creation, as well as the orchestration, of these is all within.
In studying the immensely intelligent and unceasing efforts of living organisms towards self-healing, Sylvester Graham remarks: "In all these operations the organic instincts act determinately, and, as it were, rationally, with reference to a final cause of good, viz., the removal of the offending cause."
Let’s investigate the miraculous process of healing a wound, scratch or broken skin. An exudation of blood coagulates and forms an airtight scab. It protects the wound from further aggravation and remains for as long as necessary. Underneath, muscle, nerve and skin cells multiply rapidly to build a ‘bridge’ that reunites the edges of the wound. Once healing is complete, the now redundant scab peels off easily. Is it not astounding that this happens with such precision and consistency and no-conscious control on our part?
Even a tumour, often seen as a grievous danger to be removed as soon as identified, is nothing less than a protecting wall erected by the organism. They probably start as thickening of tissues that have been irritated. Such hardening occurs in response to constant irritation in the mouth/stomach/intestines (to resist the irritation from salt and other condiments), in the skin (to resist mechanical friction), etc. Toxaemia within the body often necessitates the creation of a protective barrier of connective tissue beyond the localised hardening of cells.
The growth of the tumour will continue so long as the causes of the irritation and toxicity are present and its size can become a source of danger in itself. As nature is extremely frugal and efficient as soon as the need for the protection is gone, it will gradually autolyse the protective shield. Without this barrier, life would have been destroyed much earlier, so a tumour actually prolongs life. In light of this, it becomes evident why an operation is redundant if the causes of the tumour are eradicated and ineffective if the causes persist.
Studying every so-called dis-ease or condition reveals the same underlying principle summarised eloquently by Isaac Jennings: “But at every step of her (nature's) downward progress (in the face of pathogenic causes she cannot overcome), her tendency and effort have been to ascend and remount the pinnacle of her greatness; and even now, in the depth of her degradation, the tendency of all that remains of her, of principle or law, power and action, is still upwards.”
