The highly tuned ear of the musician can tell instantly when his note is off key or his instrument is not finely tuned; even slightly off makes him/her unhappy–and even temperamental at times. Wouldn’t it be nice if our innate could tell our cellular structure the same–or has it? Is beginning to happen? It’s time to connected the dots.
Some months ago, standing in my kitchen, I begin wondering about all of the gluten sensitivity; my own included. Suddenly, without warning, the thought occurred with lightening-bolt speed as if circumventing my neural network: could all of the food sensitivities be our “smart body” detecting toxins which are foreign to us and our “smart body” innately knows? Growing up I never knew anyone with celiac disease or the tsunami of food allergies that we experience today. What’s really going on?
Today, quite frankly I just feel better when I stay away or refrain from processed wheat and flour products. Why is that? Whole wheat was the only kind of bread my Mother purchased at the insistence of my father and I never suffered by it’s consumption. Yet in the last 10+ years the bloating and discomfort seem to come on like a flashing-yellow caution light blinking incessantly and warning me when I do not give way. My head and joints seem to join the chorus singing: better not, better not, better not eat that hamburger bun, pasta or bread or you will pay the price hours after the fact. Although unpleasant, it would be much better if I threw up quickly afterward–the culprits caught red handed and identified. But 10, 12, or 24 hours later, it is sometimes difficult remembering what the hell I ate! And, unlike the instrument which is out of tune, or the broken string on the bow, we cannot “hear” or see which note is off key and unlike the musician, we continue to play unaware the food ingested has made us out of tune–out of balance, the sour notes within and silently reeking havoc with our cells.
Could we pose that many of the more recent changes to our food sources have reacted with our innate smart body–and perhaps this is the signal from us to us? The alert and warning because the pesticides and toxins and manipulations have been mixed with the good, wholesome and hardy to to look like food of yesteryear? And although science, the FDA or other governing bodies such as the USDA have pronounced these levels acceptable–our smart body does not! Screaming louder and louder, our cells are clearly saying NO even when our brain does not yet connect these dots. Isn’t time to wake up?
There are beneficial systems that work by the same principle. One, such system we call homeopathy. This form of medicine is used for healing. Unlike allopathic medicine, the idea is a tiny tincture sends a signal so small that our body responds in a very powerful way. This signal to the body works in conjunction with the body’s own self-healing nature. Now, let’s look at the concept of “reverse engineering” the homeopathic principle. This time, the small toxic tincture is sending a message—only misinterpreted by us. This time the information we receive is from our innate smart body. This time, the message is: invader–poison–danger! Do not ingest this tainted food or your allergies, sensitivities and diseases will appear. Like the musician whose ear detects a off note or broken string and stops to make the adjustment, so can we. It may not be an audible signal but nevertheless we must listen to the subtle, the quiet, and the physical–our innate body is talking to us, but do we listen?
This is our signal to chose other foods that do not negativity affect us. But we must pay attention–it is up to us. Why wait 20 years to hear some declaration in the obscure back page of a newspaper or a final thought on the nightly news that finally says, we are mistaken. In the larger picture we as consumers, must clearly send this signal. Only then will the big corporate giants take time to “re-tune” their product and their ways. What is old and ancient will be new (knew) again. And, our cells, rest assured will play softly in peace working in harmony with our innate. Our smart body pleased we’ve listen to the music–harmony and balance with this piece, of the health picture restored! Without the toxic extras and “new-fangled” changes we will once again enjoy our breads, pastas and hard baked rolls just as our ancestors once did.
