I have said it so many times, if we don’t have our immunity we are screwed.
If we don’t have our wellness lived as a priority in life we are extremely susceptible to all manner of insults that come upon us in the course of daily life, whether that be from flu, more virulent virus, or from allergies, colds, coughs and everything else.
When I look at the 20th century, amongst all the great and wonderful feats humanity achieved during that extraordinary time, from the elimination of terrible diseases, to the introduction of modern medicine, to health care on a new level, to longer life and better child birth, I also see a radical decline in people’s immunity, a massive increase in chronic illness, an obesity explosion, GMO foods, toxic water, denatured foodstuffs, chemical laden supply chain, mass farming, animals pumped full of god knows what, a huge rise in stress and anxiety, fast paced living and an increasing separation from nature.
And that is the contributing factor to what I would call an immune integrity disaster waiting to be exploited. And then here comes a virus that exploits our impaired immunity and we are plunged into a huge global epidemic.
A reminder, this is purely a personal view, not of the virus or what it is or any moral question around it. This is purely about our immune system and why, after this is over, one of the greatest lessons we can learn from it is that it is imperative that we, each of us, take greater charge of our health and wellbeing, from the ground up, or else we may not be so lucky next time.
That greater responsibility from the ground up means sorting out our nutrients, food, diet, sleep, exercise, getting the sun, getting in nature, all the physical stuff, dealing with addictions, which means dealing with the emotional stuff of carrying bags of old trauma and grievances around, dealing with stress and anxiety, which means dealing with negative thoughts and beliefs, getting into meditation, yoga, mindfulness and positivity, which means addressing the spiritual side of life, finding a deeper peace and inner harmony. And what I mean is not doing all that because you have to but because you want to.
We were built for immune integrity, for a calm nervous system, built for natural health, not chemical health or a life kept alive by pharmaceutical medicines. Chemical drugs may keep you alive but they will wreck havoc on your immunity.
Some good must come out of this global tragedy. There are many things to learn, and this ‘stay at home’ lesson is guiding us into reflection of what we value and how we live, it is inviting us to look at our relationships with ourselves and others, and, to me, more than anything it must make us reevaluate the very way we are living. I doubt the government will help with this. Most governments are either in bed with, or held hostage by, multi national corporations and vested interests. Big pharma and big food are almost unbelievably influential and guide policy, so we simply cannot honestly look towards them when we need to restore our immune integrity. We are on our own, with each other and with natural health professionals. Fortunately with the internet there is no excuse not to become informed and intelligent, and take whatever level of action is required to upgrade your health and therefore your immune system.
I know this short message might seem obvious, but believe me, the number of people who are not doing it and may never get round to doing it, is incredible.
Don’t be one of them. Upgrade, and don’t wait, start today. Because today is every day.
With blessings of great immunity.
