GFSH Newsletter Issue #19
July 1, 2009
It’s been a while since I’ve been in touch, and I wanted to give you some important information about something that’s been on everyone’s minds - the flu - but even more importantly, what you can do to minimize the risk without harmful vaccines.
The actual risk is much smaller than is being reported, but it’s still wise to keep yourself as healthy as possible - The best defense against infectious disease is a healthy immune system.
The focus is commonly on “the germ” reponsible for a particular illness, but it’s just as important to look at why your body might be willing to play the hospitable host!
And in many cases, flu-like symptoms are NOT caused by Influenza, but by many other possible factors - a release of unexpressed emotions; or a detoxification process; a flareup of a chronic illness, among others.
Most of my readers already are aware of the devastating effects of conventional vaccines - my website contains numerous articles on that issue, including many links to excellent websites for more information.
But what can you do in a positive way to strengthen yourself against illness in general?
You can improve your Regimen - nutrition, exericse, sleep, etc. - lifetyle factors that can be adjusted to shore up your life energy.
We have “Four Cardinal Points” of Regimen -
- Nutrition - the proper nutrition for you as an individual - there are no “one-size-fits-all” diets.
- Hydration - consuming the proper amount of pure water and enhancing your body’s ability to utilize it
- Dormition - proper sleep
- Recreation - including proper movement (”exercise”), and activity that engages your creative energy
Now, “proper regimen” might evoke images of a harshly disciplining boot camp… but true regimen is far from that - it’s a structure and support for your own internal bodily wisdom to develop its capacity to direct your choices.
It’s not a “no pain no gain” type of discipline, but a gentle nudge to reawaken your own instincts for what’s truly nourishing and health-promoting for you. Your body wants to be healthy and just has to be retrained to provide you with more reliable signals.
Do check my website for many newer articles on a wide variety of related topics.
