A little food for thought to nourish the soul...reflections on life

You always hear about those people who can eat unhealthy foods and still live a long life.  What you eat is a big part of your health, while your nourished soul and happiness is about equally as important.  How you eat is just as important as what you eat.  If you are tense and angry, any healthy morsels that make it in your body will not do any good.  The nutrition from the foods cannot be extracted and absorbed if your digestive enzymes are not secreted.  And they will not be active if your body is in stress mode, as the digestive system shuts down, focusing on other body systems to help your body cope with the stress.  So, the key is balance and feeding our soul and working through the thoughts and feelings the swing the pendulum out of balance, causing stress, anxiety and dis-ease.
