Healthy Planet, Healthy People...
In their book ‘Spontaneous Healing’ authors Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman argue that contrary to long held beliefs, our fate is not cast in our DNA but by the environment that surrounds our cells. In other words, our health and wellbeing is largely influenced by personal habits and self care.
At one point in the book co-author Bhaerman bluntly states: “It’s the environment, stupid!” and while the author’s statement seems a bit aggressive, even rude, it also carries with it some good news:
WE ARE NOT POWERLESS. WE CAN MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES.
And while the authors’ thesis offers another explanation and confirmation of our inner world, it is not a new concept. It was Claude Bernard, a 19th century French physiologist who first postulated on the ‘Milieu Interieur’. Referring to the fluid body that represents more than two thirds of our physical composition, Bernard wrote: “The stability of the internal environment is the condition for the free and independent life”.
Bernard was referring, of course, to the quality of the primordial ocean in which our approximately 50 trillion cells reside. Our cellular ocean strives to maintain a pH (acid and alkaline) balance that supports each individual cell while the pH of our skin acts externally as a protection against micro-organisms and internally to prevent degenerative disease.
Most chronic disease including diabetes, arthritis and acid reflux are acidic based – and avoidable. .
To enjoy a long life of health and wellbeing we are best served by a healthy pH balance.
