50,000 Years Ago…

Cave man

Imagine if you would, that you’re walking the earth 50,000 years ago. A wild animal jumps out and starts chasing you. You run for your life with supper human speed because your body has dumped power chemicals into your blood stream to give you a life saving supper boost.

Eating sugar and processed foods does the same thing.

Except you don’t get to run it off. Those life saving supper chemicals are there with nowhere to go. Unfortunately, they find things to do. Like suppress your immune system, halt cellular repair, stop digestion, decrease fertility and more.

It’s not just sugar and ground up grains (processed foods) either, other stress factors cause the same issue. A near fender bender for instance, or being brow beaten by a boss or coworker. All stress causes a release of the same chemicals we evolved needing to save our lives.

Even though our life isn’t threatened so much anymore our bodies still responds to any stress factor as if death is immanent. This is how we are designed, evolution hasn’t caught up with our mere five thousand years of eating grains yet.

There are plenty of other stress factors too. Lots of hidden ones. Toxicity, loud noise, over exercising, excess light, dehydration, most low fat diets, injury, too much sex, and just about any other extreme you can think of.

Fortunately, the human body is designed to deal with stress. It’s amazing how long the body can keep going in the face of ongoing stress. Of course, that’s with a lot of drugs and often a very limited life style.

The thing we all need to do is to reduce stress in all areas of life. Living more simply is the key. Fewer packaged foods, less driving, clean air and water, more sleep and harmony in the family will go a long way towards a long and healthy life.

Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
