Currently I am taking a course in western pathology. This is part of my graduate program in Traditional Chinese Medcine. Our body is amazing. Many living organisms called cells make up our body. Every cell needs oxygen, nutrients, water and the right temperature. Also waste must be removed. If these actions are not taking place the cell will die. Each cell has a speclized duty. For example one may have the job to provide air or provide air. Each speclized cell has certain nutritional needs. The kidney cells need sodium and potassium and structural needs more calcium. If they are not provided with the nutrients it can affect the entire body and the bodies homeostasis disrupts. This is where the world disease starts “lack of ease”.
When you understand your body and its function, you will be better able to take care of it and live a healthy lifestyle. Promise today that you will do your best to care for your body, its the ONLY place you HAVE to live!
