We've all heard the adage "You are what you eat," but that's not entirely correct. It's more accurate to say "You are what your body digests and absorbs." Having an understanding of this is critical in supporting your body's ability to heal itself and maintain good health. And if you're like me, you don't mind spending the extra money on fresh organic foods, filtered water, and supplements that are free from chemicals and toxins. Because you know that in the long run, preventing disease is much more cost effective and so much better than the hardships and loss of having a disease. But are you getting the most out of your nutrition?
Chronic stress wreaks havoc on the digestive system and interferes with the absorption and digestion of the nutrients in the foods you eat. When the flow of vital life force energy is interfered with or blocked to the brain due to chronic stress, the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) stays engaged, and the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) doesn't stand a chance. For example, chronic stress causes an increase in the production of cortisol and other stress hormones which actually suppress or "shut down" the digestion of food. Moreover, chronic stress increases the permeability of the intestinal lining causing "leaky gut syndrome." It disrupts the gut's natural balance of bacteria, which adversely affects the immune system, leading to immunity dysfunction and disease. Chronic stress can also decrease the release of digestive enzymes, result in weight gain/loss, and cause gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD, IBS, IBD, and food allergies.
So regardless of which diet you choose (paleo, vegan, keto, South Beach or a common sense diet made up of a variety of organic foods), you want to make sure you're getting the most out of it to support your healing and wellness needs. At BioNRG Healing & Massage Therapy, our unique method of wellness care allows us to identify and release deep chronic physical or emotional stress that's interfering with your body's ability to heal itself and assimilate the foods you eat. Furthermore, our biofeedback assessment protocol can determine which foods and supplements will benefit your healing and wellness needs, and which ones won't. The key to living life to your full god-given physical, emotional, mental and spiritual potential is eating a "clean" and well-balanced diet, having a free flow of vital life force energy, and a biofield (aura) unshielded or unblocked to the energy/wisdom of the universe.
