Think about it. You eat something, which separates into nutrients, and then chemical elements. Those go into your blood and cells and build your body. They become you. If they are mostly aluminum, you’ll be Wizard of Oz’s Tin Man 🙂 and if they are mostly oxygen, or carbon, you’ll be an organic person 🙂 . It’s quite easy to comprehend. In the same manner, if you eat acidic foods, you’ll get acid thoughts.
Toxic, unnatural, and inflammatory foods poison the mitochondria – the organelles (little organs) inside the cells that are responsible for producing energy in our body. When the mitochondria are damaged they produce energy less efficiently, increasing the production of acidic waste products and free radicals (that also act like acids). The acidity or not (alkalinity) of our body is measured through the pH. An acid pH is not good. An alkaline one, is. Disease basically happens when there is acidity (translated in inflammation) somewhere in the body. It all comes down to that eventually. Acids inside the body must always be neutralized to alleviate the chemical damage, this usually happens through the production of mucus, and also through breathing, kidney excretion of valuable ions and calcium usage from the bones. Yep. That’s why we get reduced bone density when there is acidity in the body. That’s why also when there’s mucus there’s inflammation somewhere, to protect the tissues from acid.
Now, first of all, what is our body exactly made of, in terms of substance, matter? Well, our body contains around 20 different elements, mostly made inside very old stars 🙂 The four main elements we’re made up of are: Oxygen (65%), Carbon(18%), Hydrogen (10%) and Nitrogen (3%). The rest are minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, etc. So, anything outside of those 20 elements, the body doesn’t need. Also, if there is more or less quantity of the elements that we need, there will also be an imbalance and therefore toxicity.
So, if we are what we think, and if our reality is created with our thoughts, shouldn’t those thoughts be fueled with the right food? If we feed wrong things (material) to our body, our mind (non-material) will also be wrong. Thoughts not only happen in the brain, they start in the gut and in the heart. In case you didn’t know, we have 3 brains: the physical brain, the gut and the heart. A brain is something that gathers and processes information, and hopefully learns. These three brains don’t lie, specially the heart and the gut, because they are devoid of ego.
So while Potassium may be great for the nervous system – and that includes the physical brain – keeping in mind what we know regarding gut and heart, anything we eat determines not only our thoughts but also our emotions, and intuition. And if the word intuition sounds too ethereal for your understanding, call it ‘chemical reactions’. It would be awkward to think that our thoughts are solely made of Potassium 🙂 We need the right amounts of the 20 elements in order to have a healthy body, i.e. healthy thoughts. Not more, not less.
From a different perspective, when we let go of our thoughts, we are also detoxifying the body. Holding on to thoughts, goals, stresses, desires, wants, is a form of stress. When we relax and observe and let go of thoughts, our body chemistry also relaxes, resets, harmonizes, re-assembles, and in return gives us peace of mind to not feed more of those thoughts. Call that meditation, isolation of thought or deep breathing. Practising these will in turn transform your chemistry in a way that you only want to eat good nutrients. Hence why highly spiritually evolved people eat mostly herbs and seeds. The more density we bring inside (through food) and outside (through stressful activities and relationships) the body, the “thicker”, “lower” our thoughts will be. Hence, the opposite also applies.
