We all know of the alcoholic and drug addict and their dangerous habit. You say they have a problem and you are right, they do, they cannot quit their insidious habit…even though it is killing them. The human body cannot tolerate the chemicals that we put into it, it will become addicted to these poisons. Just as the alcoholic, drug addict feed their drugs in, the drug then begins to take over all of the body’s chemistry. They can’t just stop just by sheer desire; the brain, the hormones, the cells have all been compromised to the point that the withdrawals are overwhelming. There is no stopping now, the drugs have control over the body. It’s like a sci-fi movie where the monster comes in and can’t be stopped, its tentacles are wrapped around everything It is terrifying. The reality of the situation is that what the chemicals that are in our diet and environment is doing the same thing to us…to our bodies, we just don’t know that the enemy is in control.
Education is the clear factor, but when it is brought to the forefront, most often it is balked at because of the food cravings/addictions involved and of the profits of the food manufacturing companies. (you read that right…cravings and addictions are in the same category). We tend to feed our palates with these chemical based foods and not our bodies which will remain malnourished and sick. This also feeds and continues the addictive cycle. They are comforting to our body but the enemy still lurks inside of us…the chemicals.
These processed foods with their chemical content are creating the diseases that are overpowering us, to the point that the health care system is becoming overrun and cannot handle the overload. We need to be aware and recognize what is going on with the dangers of these chemicals, ie. additives, refined sugars, flours, salt to our body. I heard a story that several women were asked if they would rather have raw, passionate sex or eat chocolate. They answered,”what kind of chocolate and how much?”
The chemicals tend to overload our bodies to the point of saturation and then it reaches the breaking point. Our bodies will start screaming out in pain thus starting into the disease process. The body needs a release of these chemicals, but our addictions to them keep us from that freedom. So we get caught up into the same squirrel cage as the alcoholic and drug addict, we NEED these foods, we won’t give them up, we can’t live without them, nor do we want to try. We have so many excuses why we can’t or won’t change our eating and living habits. So we cannot judge the alcoholic because we are the same…addicted to our sugars, flours, oils, salts, refined and processed chemical based foods. The list goes on, take a second look before you dip your hand into the bowl of ‘whatever’ or the drink that you pour down your throat..it will come back and bite your body with disease. We are powerless! We need to clean up our body of these chemical poisons. Let us work on our new mindset so we can free ourselves from the tentacles of these addictive poisons.
