You are What You Eat

You may have heard this before but what does it really mean?  It is the frequency in the foods that you eat that nourish the mind and help the body to thrive.  If you eat foods that are highly processed and overcooked, they become void of the necessary nutrients and energy to nourish the body and mind.

Preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, and sugar is added to just about everything.  These turn into a chemical cocktail in your digestive system creating toxins and free radicals.  These float around in your blood and accumulate somewhere in the tissues.  When enough of the toxins build up, you get sick or start to experience aches and pains, arthritis and other problems.  The mind can no longer focus, there is a short attention span, and it becomes harder to get anything done.

Detoxing the body with herbal remedies and fresh whole foods will change the way you feel in a dramatic way.  Learn to read labels and don't buy anything that has a long list of ingredients with words you can't pronounce in it.  It is not food.  If you don't know what an ingredient is, most likely it is not something you want to eat.  

To accelerate your spiritual healing it is beneficial to keep your mind and body free of toxins and full of the good wholesome nutrients.  These provide the cells with the energy necessary to regenerate. When the cells are not polluted, the mind can think clearly and you can awaken to many different levels of consciousness.
