Meet Your Amazing Body

The truth is you have an amazing body.  One that has an immeasureable capacity for health and well-being, that is lost beneath the dissections, memorization of complex biochemical formulas, cascade of hormones, gene activation and everything else you have and will learn.

I’d like to introduce you to your amazing body. Volumes of encyclopedias couldn’t describe the many wondrous activities that are going on within you right now as you are reading my words on this page. When you mentally scan your body, you are unaware of the thousands of biochemical reactions taking place or the creation and repair of your cells and organs. Nor are you aware of the vigilant protection your immune system is providing you. At this very moment, it is destroying all the invading organisms and foreign particles that could potentially cause you significant harm, while keeping an eye out for any changes in your cells that might indicate the presence of cancer. Fortunately, you don’t need to be aware; everything I’ve just described is happening automatically.

We take our bodies for granted in many ways. We expect them to do what we want when we want: to walk, touch, digest, move, think, and creatively express our thoughts. We don’t sit around wondering why or how the body can do these things. But maybe it’s time we should.
