A Simple Thank You Can’t Hurt

January 2, 2013

Screen Shot 2012-12-23 at 7.44.59 PMCan you imagine working 24/7 for someone their entire life and never getting a simple ‘Thank you’.

And, when you do hear something, it’s a complaint? I’ve heard many people complain about their knees, their back, their head, or their stomach. But, when was the last time you THANKED your body.We are intelligent beings and every cell in our body has intelligence. Every cell in our body responds to love, appreciation, and gratitude from the outside and inside. So today, say thank you to your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, immune system, feet, brain, circulatory system, respiratory system, muscular system,  nervous system, etc.

We know our minds have intelligence but have you ever really thought about the intelligence of your body?  Bruce Lipton in an interview made a profound point.  He said something to the effect (I’m paraphrasing) that our immune system is our physical body’s intelligent history.  It remembers what makes us sick or well and creates responses  (allergies) when we come into contact with those things in the future.  You are a super intelligent being and every cell in your body has memory.  It remembers what it feels like to be valued, appreciated, and well and also what it feels like to be unappreciated, devalued, and sick.  It responds to your thoughts of fear and worry. (We call it stress!) It also responds to faith, appreciation, and good thoughts.  Depak Chopra wrote in his book, Ageless Body- Timeless Mind, that our cells are constantly eavesdropping on our thoughts.  That being the case, let’s follow the advice of our wise old sages when it comes to our internal communication as well, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything.”  Your body works hard for you 24/7, show it a little more kindness and you might see some miraculous changes in your health.

    The term ” homeostasis ” refers to the maintenance of overall inner resistance in the body. Homeostasis stabilizes the body by regulating the internal environment. This is required for the body to function sufficiently. The Homeostatic process is essential for the survival of each cell, tissue, and body system. Homeostasis in a general sense refers to stability, balance or equilibrium. Maintaining a stable internal environment requires constant monitoring, mostly by the brain and nervous system. The brain receives information from the body and responds appropriately through the release of various substances like neurotransmitters, catecholamines, and hormones. Individual organ physiology furthermore facilitates the maintenance of homeostasis of the whole body e.g. Blood pressure regulation: the release of renin by the kidneys allow blood pressure to be stabilized (Renin, Angiotensinogen, Aldosterone System), though the brain helps regulate blood pressure by the Pituitary releasing Anti-Diuretic Hormone (ADH). Thus, homeostasis is maintained within the body as a whole, dependent upon its parts.
