Understanding our stomach and natural detoxing process
Fellow Energies, it is our honor to have you all and we are grateful for the response, we are getting from your emails and phone calls. We had been trying to do our best in form of Reiki teachings, Reiki healings and trying something new to help and improve in daily life.
We have got an email, asking on for the Reiki healing for upset stomach, like in case of constipation or loose motion, where at times, many medicines seem to be helpless. We had already discussed about the food and the time they take to digest in our body, so we are now just further more explaining our body’s metabolism. As we all know now that we all intake different kind of food at different time, and every food take its own time to digest in our body and flush out the waste. Fresh fruits, vegetables and sprouts usually take about 4-5 hours to digest in our body. Cooked or baked bread, cereals, vegetables take about 8-12 hours to digest. Meat, flesh, white bread and their products usually take about 72-96 hours to digest.
This all I am telling you here, just to tell that if we had consumed any of the above in our meals, we should give this much time to them to get digested. After the digestion process is complete, than only our body will be able to release and excrete the waste. If we have consumed anything that takes longer time, than how can we expect to excrete earlier, and than we have to wait. Most of the people are unable to understand this procedure, and since they are just waiting for the motion to pass on every day, they feel like they have constipation. Once this thought enters their mind, they tend to take some medicine for constipation.
In some other cases, when too much food is piled up in the body for a long time, as the some of the food’s digestion time is longer, and some is shorter, they feel like having loose motion. However, we will just call it as the simple and natural body’s method for Detox. Since too much of junk and waste food is lying in body, the metabolism just push it out of body. This too much of flushing out seem to be abnormal to us, and we term it as loose motion.
In to to, (in both the cases), people rush to medical practitioners and ask for some medicine, so as to stop the constipation or loose motions. If such people come to us, we just ask them to do some exercise in case of constipation, and for people with loose motions, we ask them to drink a lot of water with a pinch of salt and sugar. Lemonade may also be taken for a change of taste. Sugar gives instant energy, where as water and salt solution help in cleaning of body from inside, thoroughly. This is what I feel like a good and natural way of self Detox, without any medication and which helps your body fresh and clean from inside, once again.
After loose motions, one should try to avoid any other junk food or the food that takes long time to digest, so that he gets the full benefit of the Detox that the body had gone through. Exercise helps the metabolism work faster and the undigested food gets digested faster and helps the body expels the waste material faster.
I would just like to tell you one thing that constipation and lose motions are just a signal, what our body is trying to tell. It is like an alarm for us to be aware in future and avoid too much of junk food in future. Sometimes, our body repels so badly, that people tend to throw up even on eating anything that is bad for their body. This may be termed as food infection by some doctors at times. We should also remember that at times, doctors ask any pregnant female to avoid certain kind of meal, as it will be hurting the baby as the body will be consuming more energy on meal, than supplying the energy to the baby.
We all must understand that our body has all the specialists anyone need, but we are our self spoiling it by eating bad food. I will just ask you to eat to live, but avoid living for eating.
Thanks dear friends, thank to all of you, for reading my article, and I am sure, that this is a small eye opener for some of you and you will understand the importance of vegetarian diet.
Love and Light to you and yours.
