Often we don’t appreciate what our bodies do for us until something goes wrong. I know that for myself, I don’t often think of what my big toe does for me each day...that is until I injure it. Then, I realize how it’s used in every step of the entire day.
I’ve been nursing my baby and am amazed each day that my body produces food. Enough food to keep a tiny human alive for months! The milk contains the right amount of fat, nutrients and water, just for him. It’s even loaded with antibodies to keep him from getting sick. The correct amount gets produced for his appetite and if he needs more or less, the body adapts! Our bodies are so amazing!
Our bodies are constantly healing themselves. When you get a cut or a cold, your body immediately starts to heal. So, why is it that when we are sick for longer than we EXPECT or something isn’t healing as we like it, we doubt that our body can heal itself?
When we have a bunch of rainy days in a row, do we doubt that the sun will ever come back out? No, we know that eventually, the sun comes out again.
This is how we need to see our body. Even if you’re dealing with low back pain or neck pain, you can still look for signs that your body is constantly healing. Look at a bruise or scratch that you got recently. Our bodies can make human beings in 9 months. They can heal. Don’t give up on your body.
