Todays front page says ' Diet replaces Medicine'. I was positively surprised by the headline! I'm a true believer that you are what you eat..for years and years I'm telling this to anyone whose interested but that a big newspaper shared this today on the frontpage is what I think a fantastic new revolution. These days we are actually coping with a luxury problem, there's just to much choice of foods & drinks out there. Therefore we tend to forget why we're eating and drinking, like way WAYYYY back ago.. we ate to stay alive and keep our energy level up to survive an hunt on animals.. now most of us just eat to enjoy a certain taste or craving.. we snack a lot in between meals.. and most of the time your not even aware what you're actually eating.There's just so much more you should know about how you can get the best out of you & your beautiful body by eating the right food! I mean.. it is actually kinda logic..just as unique every person is.. just as unique every body responds to a certain ingredient or product. So one person gets pimples from eating chocolate and another person gets migraine from eating sugars.. If you're smart and think that this is all very logic too. Maybe you'll find it interesting to read the book I read years ago of Deepak Chopra 'Perfect Health', which you can buy HERE. (in Dutch the book it's called 'Balans in je leven', which you can buy HERE)
" The first practical guide to harnessing the healing power of the mind, which became a national bestseller. The book described how breakthroughs in physics and medicine were underscoring the validity of a 5,000-year-old medical system from ancient India known as Ayurveda ("the knowledge of life span" in Sanskrit). Perfect Health went on to describe how to apply the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to everyday life. In celebration of this classic work we have created this new edition, revised and updated to include the latest medical research.
Although we experience our bodies as solid, they are in fact more like fires that are constantly being consumed and renewed. We grow new stomach linings every five days, for instance. Our skin is new every five weeks. Each year, fully 98 percent of the total number of atoms in our bodies is replaced. Ayurveda gives us the tools to intervene at this quantum level, where we are being created anew each day. Ayurveda tells us that freedom from sickness depends on contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body".
Interesting right? Oh and by the way.. another VERY VERY important news-flash..FURBY IS MAKING IT'S COMEBACK! ..like wtf
