I went grocery shopping today on my own. I was carrying some 20 lbs of groceries up the steps to get home. 1
I ran into Leo, my musician friend. I explained to him that carrying those 20 lbs of groceries illustrated to me what it was like to climb the steps a year ago, when I was about 20 lbs heavier. In 18 months I shed 40 lbs.
Some insights on health, and why things are the way they are, and why are people different in their needs...
Yesterday I spent three hours to listen to Dr. Joel Wallach. 1
I think I have spent, to date, about a hundred hours listening to him. Why so much? He talks too fast, and he isn't saying the things to be understood, but to impress... In that he is a typical doctor: big ego... holding his cards close to his chest.
I think it was Hippocrates who said: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"
He didn't know that what we call food in the 21st Century isn't. That there are more chemicals in what we call food than in actual medicine. That we now have access to "food" that our body does not recognize as food... Plants and animals from far away lands, or designer plants and designer animals, that no other living creature recognizes as food.
Cows', sheep', even pigs' body doesn't recognize corn as food. It gets sick from it.
Same with genetically modified alfalfa, soy and soy bean, and beets.
Are you planning a cleanse? purging? A drastic change of diet? Based on what? Ignorance?
You can't be well, you can't be happy, you can't be sharp if you are not well inside!
One of the reasons today's human suffers is this: you have delegated most if not all decision making to "experts"... and you hoped that you would never have to know anything about those areas of life and you'd be safely and nicely taken care of.
No advice, no course, no program can give you everything...
... including my health consultation... unless...
What is this unless, that has been showing up in articles, for the past few days?
Unless you have a basic and accurate understanding of life, of health, or physics, of chemistry, of biology, of spirituality, no program is going to do much for you.
This is the main reason most programs have only a 1-10% results rate... Not because the programs a bad, but because the participants don't know much of anything.
And I am talking about you.
Even if you are a reader... you don't understand what you read, unless you have a basic foundation to understand what you are reading, to build a coherent whole with the new information, to make it become knowledge.
One of the most educational experiences is to listen in to Dr Wallach's radio show.
It's on youtube. But before you rush, let me tell you what to listen for.
People ask about a disease. A problem. Although Dr. Wallach's approach is not disease+fixing directed, he needed to learn how to ask questions that drive up the actual nutritional deficiency issues, so he can address the underlying deficiency, instead of providing a fix that makes no difference.
One question he repeatedly asks and a question that seems totally irrelevant, is this: Was there childhood rash? 1He also asks, repeatedly about childhood asthma.
I have been pondering these two questions, and I finally cracked the mystery with regards to one of them: the rash, and I am starting to see the relevance of asthma.
Human Design... a different view, distinction, looking glass, focus...
Human Design Institute: 190
Ra personal vibration: 300
accuracy of interpretation of charts: 200
charts: not useful truth value: 200
idea of false self: useful (eliminates ego concerns)
eating recommendations: useful
type identification: not useful
action/initiation mode: not correct, not useful
I muscle tested these again, and the results were the same.
Emotional breathing is one of the possible causes of your weight gain
Breathing should be controlled by your physiology, but because in "modern" man the mind has taken over most of your physiology, your hunger, your breathing, your sex, your breathing has also been controlled by your mind.
Mind contains your thoughts and your feelings. It is true that you have bodily feelings, just like any living being, but it is the mind that decides for you what they mean.
The mind is a meaning making machine. And lately its main, self-assumed function is to say if something is negative or positive.
Let me give you an example: you sit at your computer and you suddenly have a stab of pain on the right side of your chest.
