Hi, I’m Dr. Margaret Paul. I’m a bestselling author and relationship expert and I’ve been working with individuals and couples for the last 42 years. I’d like to talk to you about something that may not seem related to counseling, but it really is, and that’s food.
This is a subject that’s very near and dear to my heart. I was not a well-child and I hated being sick. So, in my 20s I started reading everything that I could about food. I threw everything out in my refrigerator and I started to find this one little health food store that was in Los Angeles.
At that time, there weren’t any whole foods and that was 48 years ago. I really turned my own health around. Now, I have more energy than most young people and I rarely ever get sick.
I think it is our responsibility to take care of our health, not only our responsibility for the country because of healthcare, but to ourselves.
I think it’s our responsibility to create a healthy body so that the beautiful soul that’s within us has a healthy body to live in. So what does create a health?
Well, first I would like to tell you what doesn’t. What doesn’t create health is anything that you eat that people 200 years ago didn’t eat, those before supermarkets.
That was before package, frozen, and canned foods. It was before devitalized foods. It was before food that got sprayed with pesticides and before factory farms.
It was before the chickens that were in cages and the cows that were fed grain and hormones. So our rule of thumb for health is if people didn’t eat it a couple of hundreds of years ago, why bother eating it now?
God gave us wonderful food on the planet. Now, we each have individual bodies and some people’s bodies need more protein and some people’s bodies need more vegetables or carbohydrates.
It’s up to each person to discover what really works for them. But my rule of thumb, which is, don’t eat it if it wasn’t eaten a lot of years ago will keep you healthy.
Unfortunately, people are very busy and instead of cooking, instead of getting fresh organic produce, they just buy something in a can or something frozen and this does not create health.
So I really want to encourage all of you to start taking responsibility for your health. As adults, we are responsible for ourselves on many levels and one of those levels is physical.
The other levels are emotional and spiritual, relational, organizational. There are many levels, but physical is one of those levels and it is a very important level.
The other thing about food is that when you eat badly, it attacks at the body and lowers the frequency of the body and makes it very hard for you to access the guidance that you need.
We all have the ability to access our spiritual guidance, but its only when we are open to learning and in a high frequency. We can’t do that when we have eaten sugar and devitalized foods.
It is so hard for the body to manage those foods. So if you want to be living in peace and joy and love and vitality and aliveness, you got to start to eat well.
Now, learning to take loving care of ourselves is a process. Wanting to take loving care of ourselves is a process. The inner bonding process is a fabulous process for learning to take loving care of yourself.
So, I hope I see you on our website at innerbonding.com. I hope you join our community, which is wonderfully supportive for loving action towards oneself. I hope to see you online.
