PART IV : A Renewable Resource: You!
100 Trillion. OK, give or take a few… but that’s how many living cells we have in our body. Our body is designed to constantly replace bad and dying cells for good ones. Some cells are replaced quickly (blood), while others take much longer (bones).
The QUALITY of what is replaced is largely dependent upon the building materials 😉 (what do you eat and drink?), and toxins you are exposed to (Remember, those toxins could be both physical or emotional).
Do you remember the parable in the Bible about the man who built his house on the sand (an unstable foundation), and a storm 🌊came (stress) and the floods came (more stress) and the house fell away? A second man built his house on the rock (a solid foundation) and the storm and the flood came, but the house on the rock stood standing. (Matt 7:24-27)
Our bodies are very much like one of these houses. We choose which one thru our daily habits and lifestyle. Our body's foundation is what we choose to feed it, and how we choose to take care of it. If we feed it garbage (processed foods, junk drinks, poor “mind chatter” etc) and if we don’t work to maintain our moving parts (motion is lotion!) and keep our toxin load low, our foundation will be poor indeed and will be prone to sag and ultimately fall in times of stress, wear and tear. 😢
Thankfully, God graced us with powerful healing mechanisms provided we participate responsibly in the “care and feeding” of us! Every 15 minutes, roughly 1.5 billion new cells are created within a human body…. Every 7 years, there’s a whole new you cell by cell. Are your cells constantly upgrading or downgrading? Well…… that depends! How are you caring for you?
We have the power to heal ourselves, but only if we ACTIVELY participate in the process!

Part V….. Taking out the garbage!
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
