How Bad Does It Have To Get?

It is curious that we take better care of our cars than we do ourselves. We understand the care and fuel our car engines require, and we regularly add the appropriate substance. To use something different would be ridiculous and expensive.

Yet, we fail to do the same for ourselves.

The human body is designed to function with a specific type of fuel. How bad does it have to get before we simply go back to the food and way of living we were designed to thrive on?

How bad does it have to get before we admit that the way that we treat our body and the way we live simply isn’t working?

  1. Hi Rachel, it seems pretty obvious that it will get very bad before we acknowledge that the way we treat our bodies and live needs changing, as it is bad now and we do not seem to making many changes. I do not want to be ignoring my body or the way I live and yet I too have difficulty making the changes I know my body needs. It may be something so simple as adjusting what I am eating so that I do not get affected by the food. For example feeling tired after eating something or feeling really racy and hyped up. It is interesting that these very choices which I call loving choices for myself are at times extremely difficult to make and then stick too. So why is it so difficult to make loving choices? Do we actually like the struggle that most of our choices bring to us? Thanks Rachel for getting me to stop and think about this a little more.

    1. Great comment and insights Sally. Why do we struggle to do what should come naturally. Animals do not need to be told what to eat, how much and when. Animals don’t eat things that they are not designed to nor do they abuse their body or deviate from their natural instincts that we as humans seem to have lost touch with.

      We eat food and say we love it because it tastes goods and stimulates our senses and then ignore how it actually makes is feel so we can repeat the process again and again. We then act surprised when our digestion struggles or we become bloated or overweight. When it would be more caring to acknowledge that certain foods, behaviours and way we treat the body are not working and make changes or adjustments to our lifestyle before we crash and burn, become unwell or end up with a serious ill health condition.
      And even then some people are still unwilling to change if there is a magic pill or potion or modality than can do that makes them perceive that they “feel better”.

      I agree Sally things sadly appear like they are going to have to get very bad indeed before things start to really change.
