I started a new post last week about what your body needs. I said that your body needs energy, materials for building and repairing, and alternating periods of activity and rest.
In the first part, I talked about your body’s need for a variety of energies. Most come either directly or indirectly from the sun and others come from the Earth that we live on. If you haven’t read it yet, I invite you to read about your body’s energy needs now, then you can come back here.
This time I want to look into the second part, the materials that your body needs to build and repair itself. That would be the food that you eat.
Usually something comes up during the week between blog posts that gives me an idea of what to write for my next post, but nothing came up in the past week. When that happens, I turn either to Google Analytics or the Google Search Console.
They are both great places to see what people are searching for that potentially get them to my website. So I decided to hit the Search Console and see what was there. Looking through the keywords, one search phrase jumped out at me – what your body needs.
That was it, not “what your body needs to sleep well,” or “what your body needs to lose weight,” or “what your body needs to stay fit.” Just “what your body needs.”
There are so many things that could mean and so many ways you could go with it. I’m want to take it at face value. What does your body need?
Have you heard of magnetic insoles before? They are are an insert for your shoe that contains some number of embedded magnets. I have used them myself for just over 10 years and I absolutely love them.
I often get questions about magnetic insoles on my website because I promote and sell them on this website. I believe in them very strongly. I decided to address a few questions that I have heard recently about them:
- What do magnetic insoles do?
- What are the benefits of magnetic insoles?
- How to use magnetic insoles?
- I have a pacemaker, can I wear magnetic insoles?
- Where to buy magnetic insoles?
I have been writing lately about how real food supports your body much better than artificial chemicals cooked up in a lab. Real food detoxifies your liver and gives it the ingredients to make enzymes for digestion. Real food gives your heart the minerals to maintain its electrical system and can reduce inflammation in your body to make it easier to pump your blood.
I want to expand on that last point, inflammation, today.
So much of what goes on in your body today has to do with too much inflammation. What is inflammation? What causes it, especially what foods cause inflammation? And what are the foods that reduce inflammation?
Your heart is a muscular pump that collects your blood then pumps it through out your body. One side pumps it through your lungs to oxygenate it then the other side pumps the oxygenated blood everywhere else.
Last time I talked about the foods that support your liver, and that one of the primary functions of your liver is to filter toxins out of your blood. Your heart makes sure that your blood gets there to be cleaned.
This time I am going to share with you some answers to the question, “what are heart healthy foods?”
Recently I’ve been writing about what you believe as far as your health and making the best, most natural choices to support your health. One of the best choices is to get as much of your nutrition as you can from real food.
When people talk about nutrition they usually talk about vitamins and minerals. You need to get your vitamin C and you don’t want to become deficient in iron. That’s fine up to a point, but rarely do any of those nutrients work alone in your body.
To really stay healthy, it’s better to look at the larger nutritional needs of your organs and organ systems.
One part of your body that you really need to take care of to stay healthy is your liver. It is one of the hardest working and most abused organs in your entire body.
I have written the past two weeks about belief, either belief in a product or, the better choice, belief in yourself. Your belief matters, and whatever you believe in the most is what you should use to support your health.
While I do think that you should believe in your self the most, and that your dependence on products will decrease when you do, I said in those previous posts that I will still use magnets for their energetic benefits. I believe very strongly in using magnets, and that’s what I want to talk about today.
Last week I wrote about how you use health products because you believe that you have to, because you put more belief into things external to you. I said that once you change your beliefs about what you need, when you believe more in your innate ability to be healthy, you can stop needing those things.
I want to talk some more about that because I wasn’t at all clear about it.
One thing I want to make clear first. As Donna Merrill said in her comment on my previous post, you should believe in the products that you use. What you believe matters. Your belief in the products you use increases their ability to help you. I’m not saying that you should stop believing in them. I am saying that you should believe in yourself more.
What is the truth about health products? Most of them are crutches, and that includes most of the Nikken products that I like too. That is because your state of health comes mostly from your beliefs about your health.
Dr. Bruce Lipton says that one third of all healing is through the placebo effect. That means that at least one third of your healing comes purely from your belief in your healing.
I believe the opposite is true as well, that at least a third of your illness comes purely from your belief in illness. That is the only reason that can explain why some companies bombard you with advertisements for products that you cannot buy without getting permission from someone else first. They bombard you with these messages to create the seed of a belief that you might have the issue they are promoting.

I have always liked hiking and backpacking. Several years ago my father and I started hiking the Appalachian Trail. We weren’t of the very ambitious kind that set out to through-hike the whole trail in one trip, although taking off for five or six months does sound appealing every now and then.
We only hiked for a week at a time. The logistics are easier when hiking for only a week. We didn’t have to figure out how to get showers, do laundry, and resupply food and gear. Through-hikers have to do all of that because you can’t carry six months of supplies on your back.
One thing that is the same for both is how to filter water when backpacking. If you are going to be gone for more than a day then you are going to have to find water along the trail.
