[EPILOGUE] Modern medicine gave up on the illness, but my body can fix itself
The modern person's palate is accustomed to processed foods, refined foods, and synthetic additives. Although these foods delight the eyes, mouth, and nose, they are difficult to digest, and they pile up in the body as toxins. Most of the food we eat is also treated with heat for hygiene and nutrition purposes, but the human body then suffers from chronic enzyme
“Thumb shopping” (shopping on one's smartphone with the thumb) has made it unnecessary to even walk to the local store. The time spent on shopping may have been reduced, but we are now stuck with another worry caused by lack of exercise and electromagnetic waves.
The increase in communication expenses has also created ancillary economic burdens for purchases beyond the daily necessities. We have no choice but to keep working longer and harder. As neoliberalists become rampant, these competitive tools intensify. Corporations sell conscience for the pursuit of profit, and consumers are engaging with the world’s absurdities for a faster, comfortable lifestyle. That has led to increases in physical and mental stress and an unending uptick in obesity,high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer patients.
A wild boar in the mountains runs around energeically without s single injection ever, but a barnyard pig becomes sick antibiotics regularly. A mountain bird has no signs of obesity, but fat over the body of a chicken raised behind the steel bars of a
poultry farm. In this era, with a diabetes population of ten million people, the welfare budget continues to increase while the medical environment is not improving at all. Too many people are suffering from various illnesses. We are paying the price of abandoning nature. |
We must remember that the things with true value are free. Smelling fresh air, drinking clean water, and being in the sun are more important than consuming one hundred packs of herbal medicine.
Ahead of that, we need to change our perspective. Our body is an elaborate creation of God and was made to heal itself from most illnesses. The work we must do in order to strengthen the body’s natural healing power is our Health Recovery.
Through the Health Recovery program, if we replace all of the cells in our bodies from the tips of our heads to the tips of our toes, we can end the long, exhausting chain of illnesses. If we can cut the unnatural shackles that humans manufactured and adapt to the flow of nature, it will not be difficult to live a healthy life for a hundred years.
At last, let us give earnest thought to the words of Dr. Stephen Hawking on why it is imperative that we return to nature.
"The laws of nature form a system that is extremely fine-tuned, and little in physical law can be altered without destroying the possibility development of life as we know it...
Our universe and its laws appear to have a design that both is tailor-made to support us and, if we are to exist, leaves little room for alteration."
(excerpts from The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking)

[TIP] 10 rules to a healthy hundred years.
1. Establish an interval of 5-6 hours between meals.
It takes 5-6 hours for the food that comes through the esophagus to be digested by the stomach and small intestine. Problems can occur in digestion, triggering decay inside the intestine if this length of time is not reached.
On the other hand, when too much time passes beyond this length, stomach acid irritates the intestinal wall, potentially causing the symptoms of gastritis or stomach ulcer.
2. Do not snack.
No matter how healthy the food, breaking the time interval to snack causes the small intestine to stop its work of digesting and absorbing, because the priority shifts back to the stomach to digest the food that has newly entered.
Consequently, food stays longer in the small intestine, causing abnormal fermetation and becomes the main culprit of blood pollution.
3. Refrain from overeating.
The saying goes that overeating is an act of digging one's own grave with one’s own mouth. Overeating leads to the overuse of digestive enzymes, and unfavorably affects the metabolic system. There is also a saying that eating habits determine our genes. Therefore, smaller meals are not only good for one's own health but can pass on good habits to the next generation.
4. Refrain from late night eating.
The stomach should be empty for 4 hours prior to sleeping. The body focuses on healing itself while it sleeps.
If the body also has to work to digest food during sleep, the body's regenerative power naturally decreases.
5. Eat simply and with variety.
The body's digestive system does not have the ability to digest complicated foods all at the same time. You may have experienced the stomach feeling especially bloated and uncomfortable after eating at a buffet. One meal should be limited to up to 5 types of food.
An ordinary Korean person's basic diet has been 3 side dishes alongside rice and soup for many generations. The ancestors knew that, aside from rice and soup, the 3 side dishes were the basis for good digestion. Keeping that in mind, we should vary the menu with every meals so that there is no deficiency in nutrition.
6. Avoid processed food.
Food loses its nutritional value in the manufacturing process. Eat brown rice rather than white rice, whole wheat rather than refined flour. Eat fruits with their peel, and consume anchovies whole. Also, chemically synthesized material that is added to food during production can cause toxins to accumulate in the body, so eating natural food is the best choice.
7. Chew food carefully.
Mastication is the first phase of digestion, and therefore, food should be chewed thoroughly to be finely broken down to a form that is easy digest, which also signals to the salivary gland, stomach, and small intestine to secrete digestive enzymes in a smooth process.
8. Refrain from eating meat.
The overconsumption of meat prompts decay in the intestine, and decay inside the intestine pollutes the blood, becoming a cause for various metabolic illnesses. Just consider how our gas smells different after eating eggs and barley rice. When consuming meat, make a habit of eating fruit beforehand, or eating it with seaweed or vegetables.
9. Skip breakfast after eating late at night.
Breakfast is generally good. However, a lack of appetite in the morning after a late-night meal indicates that the digestive organ was suffering all night, and skipping breakfast can give the digestive system a necessary break. In the agricultural era of the past, people needed to eat a full breakfast to do physical labor, but people today do more mental labor and may benefit from emptying the intestine in the morning.
10. Eat with a grateful heart.
When handling food, be grateful to nature for providing sunlight and air, water and soil - remembering all of these elements that have participated in the process of producing food. We should also commit to maintaining a healthy body through this food, to live a life as a beneficial human being until we return to the earth.
When I eat becomes my body, and therefore, if the food I eat is carried throughout the body with gratitude, only good can result from the work done with that body and heart.
