We are more than just a body. We have feelings, we are emotional; we are spiritual, and we are mental beings. Science proves that mind, body, spirit and emotions constantly interact-and sickness in any one of those areas affects the other. (0) Everything we do involves energy. “Your body is using metabolic energy from your last meal as you read this.” (1)
Every cell in our body has a positive and negative electrical charge. Red blood cells have a positive charge internally, and a negative charge on their surface. This surface negative charge causes red cells to repel each other, so that there is ample room between them for oxygen and nutrients to flow, and for the white cells to perform immune functions.
According to Fritz Frederick Smith, the body compensates for energetic or vibratory loss. When there is energetic deficiency, the body attempts to limit further loss by reducing its function. A deficiency can lead us down the road to ill health and depression.
Emotions, such as anger, drains our energy as with stress and negative thinking. When we are feeling emotional our whole being can take on that energy. Even after a traumatic event is over and forgotten that energy can still be trapped inside, disrupting the flow and distorting the tissues around it. Every one of us has years of emotions trapped in stored cellular energy. Trapped emotions can prove toxic to the immune system, nervous system and cardiovascular system.
*Foods can deplete energy and increase toxic overload in our skin and organs. If..we live on pizza, sodas, pasta, burgers, bagels, donuts, protein bars, cereal, candy bars, pies, chips, cooked processed foods (all sugary items) we are actually promoting losing energy deep inside our very being at the cellular level. A true Enemy of Energy is coffee/caffeine, caffeinated drinks, sodas and energy drinks, as these are considered chemical soups. And when we spend our currency this way, we not only lose energy we lose oxygen. Physical illnesses are imbalances the physical body and the mind.
*Digestion & Stress. Digestion stops the moment we become stressed. Some of us however may still continue to eat as a form of comfort. This can in itself cause an array of problems. Energy levels can plummet when digestion is interrupted with stress. When our digestive system does not fully break down food, fat storage increases. Sometimes bloating and acid reflux are preliminary warning signs of loss of cellular energy, and food intolerance’s. If the body has sufficient nerve energy it can eliminate toxic waste efficiency.
There are certain things that can cause and increase inflammation in our bodies. In fact these energy zappers are intricately designed to do just that. Zappers include caffeine, alcohol, wheat/gluten, sugar, Aspartame, rBGH dairy & meat, chemicals, tobacco and trans- fats.
*Mind & Body. “All sensory impute that impacts our nervous system undergoes some form of digestion and elimination.” (2) How, what and where, we take in this information is critically important. The energy of our body depends vibrationally rich foods and our vibrational frequency from daily activities. If we live in a state of fear, anger, anxiety, depression and separation we disrupt vibrational frequency, and thus energy. Our subconscious mind stores our emotions. Negative Nellies can create emotional blockages. The energy of our beliefs’ are stored in our chakras. (0) We can become overwhelmed with and find it hard to eliminate harmful emotions.
A controlling lifestyle disrupts balance and energy. If we spend time and energy trying to control things in our life that sometimes seem out of control, such as events, people and situations., we drain all organs of energy. PLUS, constant worrying drains our brain and focusing power.
But what’s worse? A stressed brain can harm our skin.
*Energy Blockages & Skin Health. The main function of the skin is to act as a physical, chemical and antimicrobial defense system. Liver-related toxic stress includes headaches, dry skin, bags under the eyes, fluid retention under the skin, and skin problems anywhere. “Studies have shown that both stress and gut inflammation can impair blood flow and the integrity and protective function of the epidermal barrier.” (8)
Dehydration causes stress on all organs in the body, including our skin. Less water in the body means less moisture for the skin. Most Americans are chronically dehydrated. Drinking water helps with energy expenditure, brain power, and more.(10)
The connection between nutrition and skin aging has been an interesting research field from ancient times to today. Skin aging consists of two distinct processes. The first is intrinsic skin aging, (how our organs age) and the second is extrinsic skin aging.
Extrinsic skin aging is the results from environmental influences, such as UV rays, EMFs, smoking, air-pollution, sleep deprivation, and toxic scents. A huge problem is found in toxic scents such as dryer sheets, that disrupt hormones, the human brain, and zap our energy. (3)
1-Decide~ which information is important enough to read, watch, or pay attention to. Decline hours of useless TV programs.
2-Sort out and release toxic emotions~with the help of a Health Coach.
3-Avoid energy bars and energy drinks~ gives a sense of false energy and is a mood crasher. The ups and downs of caffeine include dehydration, unbalanced blood sugar levels and making mood swings more frequent.
4- Say goodbye to relationships that drain you. Toxic addictive people deplete energy. Ask yourself -what is the toxic food or emotion giving you that headache today.
5- Being hydrated increases energy levels. Nutrition and hydration are important for skin health as dehydration may increase skin injury. (11)
6- Green is associated with refreshing, vital energy. Green plants are full of vitamins and nutrients and great for improving circulation, lifting the spirit, purifying the blood and strengthening the immune system.
7-Foods that are alive have a higher life and energy force than dead processed foods. Superfoods have very high levels of nutrients. Sea plants such as green algae and seaweeds are powerful sources of nutrition and energy. Eating for superior health is a lifestyle that can help to prevent disease, improve energy, and skin eruptions.
8- Get physical ~ Start with simple activities, like walking or yoga—to increase circulation energy, stimulating the heart and blood vessels. Our breathing is directly related to the way that we feel and learning to breathe efficiently can greatly alter our well-being on every level. Take a moment to breathe.
9-Increase sleep ~Sleep is a time for repairing and restoring our energy.
10-Include Self Care ~ Find activities that restore your energy and schedule a weekly date with yourself. Make an appointment with a Reiki Master. Reiki practitioners channel energy to increase energy and harmonize the body. Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.
