Our Health

Our Body, We Only Have One

Despite modern technology, the human body is the only body that we have. Therefore, we have to take care and the  most of the only one body that we have. We can do the most with our body which makes our body our tool. Just in case you are thinking “hum interesting how do I start to make the most of my body”? I have always given the analogy of our body like a car. My dad was an auto mechanic. Therefore once again I will use a car analogy to help explain my point. Hopefully you will understand my point of view. I think that the start is just like with a car. We would wash out body, cleanse and fast if health permits. Fasting usually consist of drinking water for 24 hours or 48 hours to cleans the body. Just like cleaning and washing a car to put the bumper sticker and antenna cover, we first have to have a clean body, clean car to put things on. As you will see below in the car scenarios the third scenario car decided to do the most that they could with the car. Our body can be like that third car and be the best that our body can be. Remember our body our tool. Ok, so we have

  • car scenario one, if you have a car and put gas in the car and wash the car you are doing great
  • car scenario two, but if with that same car you put a bumper sticker that says Love, Laugh, Love then you are spreading hope, cheer and enthusiasm with that same car
  • car scenario three, you do all the things car number one did and car number two did. Plus put a funny antenna cover to spread humor

Just in case you are thinking ok so, how do I get my body to be my tool ?  Well for me, years ago I started fasting on bananas and water. I started for one day then decided to do that for 2 days. The reason I decided on bananas and water was because bananas have a lot of potassium and at the time I was getting a lot of painful leg cramps in the middle of the night. Smoothies are the best way to go but ONLY you know your body and what medications you are on or have been on. Therefore, need to think about that before start drinking smoothies and making your body your tool. You can still do the car number 3 but you have to consult with your doctor and be realistic, honest with yourself.  It is important to make sure eating/drinking the right foods so do not counteract with any medicines or therapy presently in.  How do I know what ingredients to make a smoothie out of ?  Well, what I do is use www.google.com to find out information about fruits and vegetables.  For example I might want to find out the benefits of Spinach, or apple benefits and so on. Then if I am unfamiliar with the vitamin benefits I will google benefits of vitamin A, vitamin C and so on.  Keep in mind that what fruits and vegetables might be good for one person might be bad for someone else. I google checked for bananas and found that bananas are high in potassium. Spinach is high in Vitamin A.  Pineapple is high in Vitamin C.  Watermelon replaces electrolytes.  Cactus also called nopales are great as an inflammatory and reduce high blood pressure. Sugar cane is “high in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and manganese. Diseases like cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment and effective in fighting cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer.

In conclusion, despite doctor permission needed for some we all have the capability to make our body our tool to the best allowed. Once you find the benefits of the fruits and vegetables that are beneficial for you then it’s time  smoothie time. You can combine items or just do one single item smoothie.  I will combine Carrots and Oranges then add a splash of lemon. Their are days when I will just do a smoothie of apples.  I use water and no ice cubes because ice cubes would be watering down the smoothie. If I want my smoothie super cold then I will put it in the freezer for a bit. I do not use any protein powders because I want to keep it as natural as possible. It’s really simple after finding out the information on www.google.com about the various fruits and vegetables just think
1. What do I want to be able to do, capabilities
2. Where do I want my body to go
3. your body your tool
