The Human Biological Terrain
Envision Decay or Envision Life – the Choice is Yours
It’s About Sufficiency, Quality, and Balance, but More Importantly, It's About Choice
The Two Ways We Set the Stage for Either Disease or Health
9 Ways You Can Improve Your Biological Terrain to Generate Vibrant Health (or Anything Else You Desire)
The biological terrain of the human body refers to the quantity, quality, and balance of nutrients, minerals, hormones, and supportive microbial life coexisting within the body. It also refers to the ability of the fluids in the body to sustain this balance.
There is a prevailing mistaken belief that germs cause disease. When in fact, there is a deeper cause to why germs (bacteria, viruses, fungus, mycoplasma, etc.) proliferate, as revealed in the fact that some people, when exposed, get sick, but others do not.
Bottom line is that disease is not caused by germs. Either disease or health is dependent upon whether the general condition of the body, the biological terrain, is predisposed to either:
2) support decay.
Based on the dominant trend at play in the body at the moment (life or decay), cellular activity, microbial life, organs, and glands then respond to either:
2) give up on the correction and promote the decay of the body back to soil (recycle).
Germs, if you will, follow the underlying biological trend, not the other way around. This explains why some get sick when exposed, when others do not.
A biological terrain that is enriched with vital energy extends the lifespan and quickly corrects an imbalance, whereas a biological terrain that is depleted of vital energy fosters decay, disease, and death.
Get this one central point and you then hold the key to building whatever state of health you can envision and commit yourself to attain.
In that light, it is important to note that "what you can envision and commit yourself to attain" is the foremost determining factor.
Generating an ideal state of health is fully dependent on the image you choose to hold of yourself, coupled with what you believe is possible to attain, given your unique situation.
How does this work?
Emotionalized thought concentrates life energy (prana, chi) compelling it to flow around the body in patterns supportive of the thoughts and feelings.
This life energy, guided by thoughts and feelings, then depletes or vitalizes the cells, which in turn deplete or vitalize the organs and glands, which in turn deplete or vitalize the body systems, which is then reflected in the person's overall state of health or disease.
Decay of the human form, referred to as aging, disease, and death, is the direct result of a general condition in the body (a biological terrain) that is toxic, malnourished, systematically weak, improperly cared for, or without purpose.
Physical health declines due to the loss of cellular vitality (electrical energy) within the biological terrain and the resulting systemic imbalances.
Microbes then morph and multiply to match the level of vitality of the body, and in an attempt to correct toxic conditions and imbalances.
The positive function of certain microbes/germs is to consume heavy metals, chemical toxins, and excesses of sugars, fats, undigested food, etc. Microbes will only multiply to match their favorite food sources, the toxins and excesses.
When the excesses are fully consumed, the microbes simply die back to background levels to await for the next supply of an excess.
This is one of the body's natural protective mechanisms. If the excesses become great enough, and the microbes multiply to match the excesses, system imbalances begin to form. Taken to the extreme, system failures take place, and the body dies to be recycled.
This is Nature's way of eliminating the weakened individuals within a species, while preserving the stronger individuals for reproduction.
Yet a deeper question deserves to be asked here.
What compels the excesses in the first place? What causes the cellular vitality to diminish to the point of decay? Well, a series of lifestyle and dietary choices, of course, that spring from an individual's self-image.
All instances of poor health have, at their most fundamental level, a mental image that compels the physiology to mirror a "physical" representation of that image back to the designer of the image (the self). The circle is complete. The thought and the experience of the thought have become one.
A predisposition toward life, resulting in vitality, youthfulness, agility, mental acuity, exceptional memory, strength, stamina, a bright look in the eyes, and an overall sense of well-being, comes about from a general condition in the body (a biological terrain) that is wholesome both inside and out, fully nourished with foods found in nature, and intrinsically strong, capable of neutralizing pathogenic exposures with ease (partially because, with positive lifestyle choices, the pathogens are not required to consume an abundance of excesses).
A body predisposed to life (high electrical energy at the cellular level) does not foster decay promoting microbes or parasites to develop within.
What compels the body to increase in vitality and health? Well, a series of lifestyle and dietary choices, of course, that spring from an individual's self-image.
All instances of excellent health have, at their most fundamental level, a mental image that compels the physiology to mirror a "physical" representation of that image back to the designer of the image (the self). The circle is complete. The thought and the experience of the thought have become one.
So how to we improve our health, regain our youthful energy, and vitalize our body?
Much like the atmosphere that we live in and breathe, if it is clean and vitalized by an abundance of ions (electrical energy) from a forest or an afternoon storm, we feel good breathing the air. We want more of it.
If the air is stale from being closed in, away from outdoor ion-rich natural air, filled with carpet and furniture smells, the air will not feel as desirable to breathe.
If the air is filled with smoke or chemicals we may choke, or simply seek to avoid the area all together sensing its potential harm.
This is the common first response when a child begins to smoke a cigarette for the first time. Once overwhelmed by repetition, such that the body is forced to cope with that soul's decision, the coughing ceases and the body begins to protect itself in other ways.
The atmospheric terrain of the toxic smoke filled lungs lends the body to decay and disease, which, as explained above, are just coping mechanisms of the body's attempt to correct an imbalance, or, once the cellular vitality reaches a certain energetic low, return the body back to the soil from which it was formed.
On the other hand, the person that chooses the atmospheric terrain of pure ion-rich forest air feeds the body with life-giving electrical influences (in addition to the oxygen and other nutrients present in forest air), resulting in greater health, vitality, and well-being.
This well-being from ion-rich forest air begins first at the cellular level, enriching the electrical (ionic) potential of the cells of the body along with oxygen and other nutrients.
Cellular vitality then enlivens the organs and glands, followed by an enlivening of the body systems (digestive, immune, cardiovascular, lymphatic, etc.). As a result, the overall biological terrain (physical health) is upgraded.
So what caused the decline or upbuilding of this person's health? Well, it was obviously the person's self-image prompting a specific choice – to fill the lungs with toxic smoke, or to engage in an activity that would fill the lungs with ion-rich forest air.
Our choice of imagery, self-definition, expectation, aspiration, goals, and dreams (or lack thereof) become the basis behind our lifestyle choices, food choices, and moment-to-moment decisions.
Our lives, and our bodies, are merely the reflection of these choices prompted by our personal choice of self-definition – "Who am I? What am I? I am ... (sick, tired, depressed, or alive, grateful, committed to change, etc.)"
So it is obvious now that the most primal way we set the stage for either disease or health is first through our choice of self-imagery, or self-definition, backed up with emotions.
Second, the moment-to-moment lifestyle decisions, whether the result of parental/social conditioning or personal invention, it matters not, further determine what and how we experience the outcomes.
What kind of choices can we make to improve the outcome of our present situation? Get this wrong and disease sets in. Get this right and vibrant health takes over.
1) Emotion-Packed Imagery
Develop a well defined image of your ideal life and aspirations, then engage heart, mind, and emotions toward its fulfillment. Inner healing is essential to your success in this endeavor.
Contrary thoughts, judgments, self-definitions, limiting beliefs, etc. must be examined and replaced with the true outcome you desire. Solutions exist, but only those that seek them with the expectation of finding them, actually gain from their implementation.
"Where attention goes, energy flows." Give your attention to positive outcomes and positive feelings and watch how your life improves automatically.
Imagine your ideal state of health and begin a gradual process of improving the diet to include lighter and lighter foods.
2) Lifestyle & Environment
Become informed of environmental factors affecting your health and make changes accordingly. Aspire to reorder your life over time to align more and more with the Natural Order of Life for the human being.
One of the most important lifestyle changes to consider is to reduce your dependence on technology, currently causing an abundance of unnatural sounds, pollution, and life-stresses.
Reduce the use of cell phones, wireless computers, and cordless telephones, microwave ovens, smart meters, smart gadgets, etc. to every degree possible (these being some of the most harmful, close-to-home technologies).
Be aware of the chemical dangers within your home, other buildings, furnishings made of toxic materials, structures prone to mold and fungus, ventilation systems that circulate dead, low-ionized air.
Put out the intent to discover answers to these. Intention with positive expectation of an answer draws the most suitable, or most acceptable, answers to you automatically.
At this point technology is essential to most people's business and home life. Yet the fact remains, it is also holding us back from developing the innate skills within the human being that surpass the technological crutch (telecommunication, teleportation, individual control of biological functions, etc.)
Aspire to reduce harmful technology, but be sensible, we are still far from eliminating it all together as a human society, so make your world work in the best ways possible with the least harm to yourself.
Grow evergreen plants near your windows and around your yard for extra ionization of your home. Add potted plants to your home to increase life and oxygen inside.
Spend more time facing the sun, tending to your plants, getting your hands in the soil to ground with the earth, listening to the birds, walking in the woods, etc.
Spending time in your garden with hands involved with the soil, or walking in Nature discharges negative energy and recharges the body with positive, grounded energy (vitalizing your biological terrain).
Implement a daily detox regimen through dietary and lifestyle changes that gradually reduce toxins in the body, the home, the work environment, in your food & medicine, etc.
Utilize whole earthen resources (herbs, clays, superfoods, etc.) for vital nutrition and to stimulate detoxification.
Go natural whenever possible. Use enzyme cleaners, biodegradable, eco-friendly versions of the same kind of product to the chemical ones.
Avoid chemical use wherever possible in all areas of life. This includes unnatural foods made with chemicals & concentrated sweeteners, over processed, canned or packaged food, or food grown in depleted soils laden with herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers.
This also includes the use of pharmaceutical medicines, immunization shots, diagnostic measures and treatments involving radiation, x-rays, and chemical treatments laden with heavy metals, petroleum compounds, and minute pieces of biological matter.
This arena also includes the use of “natural” vitamin and mineral formulas, hormone replacement therapies, etc. made of only fragments of a whole earthen resource, and which therefore disturb your biological terrain due to its lack of wholeness.
Search for the natural answers and implement them over time.
Be practical though, there is a time and place for everything.
Maximize the use of superfoods for foundational nutrients. Use whole earthen resources as your primary food source and medicine (herbs, clays, seaweeds, pollen, mushrooms, etc.).
Recognize that the depleted soils result in nutrient deficient foods. So depend on the superfoods for solid body nutrition, then use moderate portions of the bulky store-bought stuff primarily for entertainment, taste, fullness, and for quality social time with family & friends.
Practice wise food combining to increase digestive health and minimize health complications from your "good health food diet".
If you are not hungry, don't eat. Eat moderately when you do. Less food, but quality food (like what you grow yourself), is one of the secrets to living past 100. Where we do not have access to quality food (which is most of America), solid nutrition from superfoods is the answer.
Upgrade the quality and source of your food to avoid chemicals and GMO influences.
Aspire to progress gradually through various stages of dietary changes as the body gets cleaner and consciousness elevates from the inner work.
As we clear inside, the lighter foods (vegetables, fruit, prana, etc.) will become more sustainable, so choose a diet in keeping with your current state, including meat if felt to be necessary.
In other words, follow your personal intuition over someone else's dietary suggestions.
Grow your own food, or eat food from local farmers that you know grow their food in conscious ways (paying attention to the biological terrain of the soil!). (See the Dynamic Gardening Series of articles.)
In addition to moderate, quality food intake, occasional brief to extended periods of food restriction (we are NOT talking about the harmful protein shake weight loss regimens here), give the digestive system a rest and compel the body to do a deeper house cleaning.
Periodic fasting is essential to resetting the biological terrain to a cleaner, more vitalized state.
Types of fasts can vary from mild to intense:
simply abstaining from your most difficult to digest foods (known by how constipating they are) like meat, cheese, nuts, sugar, bananas, etc.
Intermittent Fasting of 16 hours or more during which only fluids are consumed. Modifications include adding fruit, or vegetable juices, or superfood drinks.
Light Foods Only Fast, like salads, vegetable juices, soups, and superfood drinks.
Superfoods Only Fast, like consuming only the Vital Cleanse & Nutrify, Mineral Manna, and herbal cleansing teas, like the Hyssop Mint Tea (a deep organ cleanser).
Cleansing Tea Fast, like lemon water, or dandelion root, or Hyssop Mint Tea.
Water Fast which is simply water only.
Dry Fast, which means no fluids and no foods.
I have done a Superfood Fast for 8 days on just Vital Cleanse & Nutrify, Mineral Manna, and teas, plus 4 more days adding salads and soups, resulting in excellent energy & mental focus, allowing me to work steadily from 7 AM to midnight (after the 3rd day).
I have also experienced several 24-36 hour Dry Fasts with excellent results, noticing that it gets easier and easier with each fasting event.
Each of these options require some knowledge about how to go about them and how to limit their use if your medical condition requires such. So use wisdom and discretion in how and when you fast.
If you have never fasted, start with the lighter forms and progress over time to the more intense forms of fasting. Listen to your intuition at all times when deciding what is best for you in the moment.
6) Body Systems
Keeping active extends the lifespan and is a central factor in the lives of centenarians. Walking more and gardening are two gentle ways to keep the body moving enough to boost lymphatic cleansing, improve cardio tone, boost brain power, and maintain muscular development.
Some enjoy more rigorous exercise, although reasonable health is fostered even with moderate exercise like walking and gardening. Chose what appeals to you most.
8) Quiet Time Alone
Spend time alone with your own thoughts everyday apart from all technology.
Spend at least 5-10 minutes each day envisioning the success of your dreams, desires, and aspirations while feeling positive emotions about your success.
According to Dr. Joe Dispenza, 10 minutes a day of feeling positive emotions (establishing heart coherence) "not only creates harmony and inner peace but physically stimulates our immune system and increases levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) which is a primary defense against bacteria and viruses."
During your quiet moments alone, establish images of your desired physical health, relationships, business endeavors, and any other area you desire improvements in.
The longer you spend placing attention on positive outcomes, while transforming inhibitions to those very outcomes, the faster your life will begin to mirror those positive images back to you in the physical.
Practice qigong, yoga, and/or breathwork to fill your biological terrain with positive life energy (prana) essential to physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
9) Life Purpose
Seek to know your life purpose and realign your life path to this purpose. Your purpose is known by how the thought of something lights up your eyes with inspiration.
Pursuit of a meaningful purpose raises positive emotions, thereby improving biological functioning overall. A purpose-oriented life also extends your life, as is revealed by the emphasis centenarians place on knowing and engaging in their own life purpose.
Seek to know the true secrets to happiness (and they will come to you).
Follow your passions, live your dreams, speak from your heart, all of which feeds your biological terrain with vital energy, and thereby engenders greater states of health & well-being.
With a little effort and a few lifestyle changes made gradually over time (because the change makes sense to you and you are ready for the change), both health and life improve organically.
Given consistent, gradual application of these principles, and the steady improvement in thought and imagery of what horizons are possible, your internal biological terrain is upgraded with each new choice, thus taking you into greater and greater states of well-being.
Many blessings of health & success,
Enjoy the simple gifts from Nature!
