Blog: Why Do We Get Sick?

There are many who misunderstand why a particular organ is giving them trouble. Let’s take the thyroid for instance. If there is a problem with your thyroid, is the thyroid the problem? This is a good question and can lead us to understand exactly what the problem really is (and it’s usually not the organ itself). When you eat something, which your stomach does not approve of, what happens? The stomach gets sick. It gets sick because what was brought into it was not good. The same thing happens in our organ tissues. What is it that we put into our organ tissues? Blood, and lots of it!

The blood has three main jobs. It carries O2 and CO2 to and from the lungs and the entire body. It moves nutrients from the digestive tract (absorption) and transports waste products out as well as circulating hormones and white blood cells, platelets for clotting, regulation of water balance, ph etc.

We have been given a few organs that work on purifying our blood, mainly the liver (converts toxins so they can be removed from the body and helps convert “food” into “energy”) and the kidneys (filters the blood and removes waste).  Our own purification system. This article lists a number of foods that may be effective for a “natural detox”.

If the blood is “not good” (which is the case with most people due to their diet and lifestyle) then the body has to work extra hard at detoxing. I have witnessed so many people become well, after suffering for years with troublesome organs, just by simply making their blood and body healthy simply through good nutrition and removing poor diet, thoughts and lifestyle. Did I mention that the really healthy blood, healthy thoughts and healthy habits will build a really healthy you?
