“Health – A to Z” – The Letter E


Energy

We are energy. All life is energy. Our bodies generate electric current. Our cells are like mini batteries. The food we eat is fuel for our energy producing furnace. Energy is used in healing with some practitioners using their “healing hands”. Like all matter, the human body is not just made up of physical and chemical structures, it also has subtle energy fields known as bio-energy. We continuously radiate, absorb and conduct frequency waves of energy.  Bio-energy is crucial to life and is sometimes called “the bio-field”, “vital energy”, “aura”,  “Qi “(Chinese), “Prana” (Indian), “Mana” (Polynesian), “Barraka” (Islamic), “Ki” (Japanese), etc.


To achieve and maintain vibrant health, we must protect our energy frequency and flow (or circulation) throughout the body.  It must be free-flowing, and in perfect vibration or frequency.  Any disruption or imbalance to the bio-energy pathways or “vibrations” can lead to disharmony, ill health and diseases.

Enzymes

Provide the spark of Life. All body functions (thinking, feeling, breathing, moving, seeing etc) are facilitated by enzymes. Without enzymes there is no life. We are born with an natural enzyme supply and raw foods do contain enzymes. Eating cooked foods and the stresses of daily life depletes our supply. Enzymes govern our digestion , metabolism and our immune system. Enzyme supplementation has many benefits.

Exercise

You don’t have to be a superstar. Moderate, consistent exercise is required to keep our muscles and bones in good condition. Some scoff at exercise machines, but I think they have a part to play in the lives of many people, giving them an incentive to exercise at home.
