You can place your full confidence in the innate intelligence of the body and avoid interfering with its functions in any way. Do your job by establishing the conditions and supplying the raw materials for health and leave the body intelligently alone.
How would you take care of yourself differently if you could be guided by this internal wisdom?
Perfect health is not only a physiological possibility but an unavoidable reality for the body that is structurally sound and supplied with all requisites of health. The body has immense wisdom and providence that the human intellect cannot grasp.
When the conditions of health are present, the body will always strive towards re-building and optimising its well-being. Nothing external or man-made has the power or intelligence to perform the functions of the body any better than itself.
Key facts and ideas
The body has an infinite number of provisions for well-being and longevity. Perfectly self-regulated mechanisms maintain the ideal equilibrium in all cases except for the most adverse. The human intellect, a child of the body, has neither the capacity nor the purpose to comprehend the immense wisdom of its creator.
Law and order are the default state of the vital domain. It is not wise for humans to interfere with essential functions orchestrated by an intelligence of a different magnitude. Every single act of the body is correct under all circumstances. Supplying the body with anything different from what innate instincts dictate is detrimental.
The proper functioning and nourishment of every one of the approximately 125 trillion cells their quadrillions of mitochondria and other organelles is a logistical feat beyond human comprehension. ‘Killer enzymes’, called lysosomes, digest internal growths that have no productive functions, such as cancer cells.
The brain is the master of the entire body governing all other processes, organs, and functions. The only other body part that is equal to its wisdom, independence and power is the heart.
Most of the physical and mental suffering that people endure is caused by erroneous programming. It is often necessary to put people in an entirely new environment that embodies the new ideals in order to transcend the old limiting behaviours and belief systems.
The vast majority of knowledge sources talking about the body and the mind focus on expounding the known, the understood, the identified, the classified. Very few, if any, put the emphasis on the vast unknown, uncharted, incomprehensible areas, which are awe-inspiring.
Wisdom and providence
Providence means to anticipate needs and provide for them. Wisdom is all-encompassing comprehension of profound breadth and depth. Body providence exhibits wisdom. It is based on innate knowledge, exemplifies perfect judgment and is executed with surgical precision. Recognition, communication, and effective response are but a few of the faculties comprising body wisdom.
These qualities apply to the organism as a whole as well as to its constituents – the cells, and their constituents – the organelles. Division of labour and specialisation assures the optimal efficiency of the whole operation at all times.
The fertilised ovum already has the genetic code or blueprint to develop into a fully functional human being. As it evolves, it develops a centralised control unit (the brain) and an infrastructure for effective communication (the nervous system).
50 billion of the most highly-developed cells comprise the brain. Their natural life-span is several hundred years but unlike other cells in the body, they do not reproduce. Under ideal living conditions, on average approximately 100,000 cells would be lost a day. At this rate, it would take approximately 150 years to lose 10% brain capacity. So great is our deviation from living in harmony with nature’s law is that we see a loss of 50% cerebral matter as early as age 60 or 70 and in some cases even under 20.
Our conscious cognitive faculties, which we marvel at and spend most of our lives developing are dwarfed in comparison with the complexity of the subconscious processing of data from the senses.
No chemical laboratory has the recipes, let alone, the capacity to synthesise the 100,000 different proteins building up the body. While reading the previous sentence, your body created 10,000,000 new blood cells in that very same second to maintain the population of approximately 25 trillion in total.
Internal resources, law and order
Deeming our intellects superior to the innate wisdom of the body during a crisis is stupidity. In dis-ease, the only way to help the body is to co-operate with it. Sickness is not a form of attack against the body from without. It is even more delusional to believe that a counter-attack is necessary. This misconception has led to great harm for many people through the use of pharmaceutical drugs. In fact, studies show that when physicians go on strike death rates plummet by 50-60%.
Instead, sickness is a vital function of the body. Dis-ease is right action directed towards accomplishing physiological objectives. Establish the external conditions conducive to health and leave the body intelligently alone to deal with its emergency.
Let’s take the example of eating an apple. It contains 191 known chemical compounds with important roles in nutrition. When you eat it, 1,300 chemical reactions break it down into usable molecules. These are later dispatched quickly and accurately to the exact places in the body where they can be used. Pectin goes into the intestines, vitamin A to the eyes, vitamin C to the skin, etc.
The body conducts its activities with ordinariness and precision that any book on physiology, biology, nutrition, etc attests to. Our intellects are dwarfed by the acumen demonstrated by the body’s continuous and perfect functioning aligned with the immutable laws of nature.
The perfection of the body from a structural and functional perspective is not comprehensible or subject to improvement through human intervention. We will act wisely to merely supply its needs to the best of our knowledge and discipline and allow it to continue serving us with tireless precision for its natural course.
May you have the courage and determination to allow your body to guide you.
