It is the body that heals
human body is magical stuff. It emerges from a process that is yet to be fully
known where the physical processes combine with intent, emotions, and a chance
that is often called destiny.
seed comes from man, is implanted on a woman who contributes the other half,
and it develops just as it should based on the vitality of the man and woman,
till it gets a life of its own, starts moving and exhibiting the signs of life.
The life comes from a region not visible.
woman automatically supplies the environment with the womb and amniotic sac and
the food it needs through the umbilical cord. When it fully develops the forces

in the world its food automatically appears within the mother and he feeds on
her breast. The warmth of the mothers embrace assures it through a hormonal
process that all is well. The instincts of the mother protect the child, the
father provides the needs, and the child gets an identity and a name to operate
in this world.
invisible thus becomes visible in the material world and gets a distinctive
identity separating it from the billions of similar human beings who adopt the
same process to appear in the world. They are all unique; no two are exactly
the same even if they are twins.
child operates on the mental and emotional plane that too is ready for it
according to its need. The body that has a life of its own is a highly
sophisticated dynamic biological unit whose food too automatically grows in its
surroundings. The body digests the food and uses the nutrients and energy to
run the innumerable processes beginning in its cells, involving organs,
regulating the mind and consciousness that emerges from food, and is again
guided by that very energy and consciousness. It works using every component to
create a symphony that builds the totality.
of this is done on its own.
operations of the body generate waste and the body uses its inbuilt clock to
send that waste to the eliminating organs at night to be expelled the next
of the processes require elements that the body produces on its own; the
hormones that are vital to work and coordinate. These hormones occur at the
correct time, in the correct quantity, do the required work, and recede at the
correct time. All of this is automatically guided by an intelligence that works in

time. When it requires an external input it guides the user through instinct
and appetite. When it is in danger it warns the user through fear and a medium
called discomfort and pain.
of this it does on its own.
it is unscientific to say that the body heals on its own! When we fall sick we
are supposed to take external help without trying to understand through our
instincts the cause, the effects, and the steps required to heal. The insects,
birds, and animals, even trees do it on their own. Unless they are unfortunate
to be adopted and caged, they do not need a medical system.
friend of mine who is a veterinarian comments that it is a crime to cage wild animals and subject them to treatment. They invariably become sick unlike
their wild counterparts. In agriculture and horticulture too we notice diseases
that are not present in wild varieties.
body expels what is unwanted and harmful. This takes place through the
lymphatic drainage system that delivers waste to the elimination organs. The
breakdown takes place using the body's own phagocytes, bacteria, parasites,
viruses, and fungi produced through a fermentation process. The expulsion
happens in the form of fever (that helps in the meltdown process), inflammation
(as the internal agents do their work and spaces between cells enlarge to allow
drainage), vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, and skin eruptions.
process needs rest and hydration. This is ensured through fatigue, weakness,
and thirst. The sense of taste, smell, and appetite are lost as the body wants
to concentrate its full power in the elimination and healing process. For some
time the elimination organs are burdened and are aided by hydration. The
elimination involves expelling fluids and minerals that are compensated by the
automatic craving for water and salts. We provide this with oral rehydration
processes have helped life forms to survive millions of years. Nobody can do
these intricate processes and work better than the body and the intelligent
energy that guides and operates it.
the mighty medical empire survives because the life energy in the body does its
own work despite the interference and obstructions. Even as the empire claims
to have ownership over the entire healing process, it is obvious that it cannot
do anything without the healing powers of the body.
Once the energy leaves the body, the
corpse cannot be made to work even by the best of specialists. This proves that
the energy in the body is the supreme master that we cannot do without.
intelligent energy is vital and is being acknowledged by scientists and doctors
who are studying cellular health. The mitochondria within the cells are the
source of energy. Cells require an alkaline atmosphere and need nutrients to
perform. They need to be free of waste to perform at their optimum.

holistic systems study this healing power and facilitate the process. Once the
cause of disease is known, the irritating factors can be avoided to become
preventive medicine. The holistic systems are 95% about prevention and 5% about
Let us treat the
body with respect for all that it does. Let us give it the respect that it
deserves. Let us be brave enough to acknowledge its powers. Let us be grateful
as it does everything for free and with very minimal discomfort to us.
