One area of my life that needs healing is my body. I am very overweight. actually, by medical definition I am obese. In April 2015, I weighed 90 pounds more than I did in April 2007. 90 pounds in 8 years. I also had a liver biopsy last week. I have extremely high liver enzymes in my blood and don't really know what is causing it. These 2 issues are mostly likely related. The bottom line is that my body needs healing in so many ways.
I was watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on Hulu, and I was reminded that our bodies typically are able to heal themselves when everything else is healthy. For example, when I was little and would fall and scrape my knee, my skin would heal back on it's own. However, this only happens when the body is healthy. If I am giving my body the good things that it needs and not giving it toxins that's just make me sick, my body can heal itself.
I believe this is true not just for the physical body. I can feed my body good nutrients and exercise it in order to have a healthier body, but it's amazing that the same is true for my mind and my environment. Remove the toxins, the things I know are unhealthy, those things I know are not good for me and even harmful. And put in more of what I know is good for me, what is going to make me stronger and healthier. Not just for my diet, but for all areas of my life, body and mind. And give myself a chance to rest and heal.
And this is just the beginning.
