This is an excerpt from the book Lead Yourself to Better Health by Dr. Terry Kibiloski
Have you ever paused to think about how your body is a walking miracle? Years ago, while at one of my seminars, a doctor gave me the following information about our body. Your heart beats more than 98,630 times a day, pumping over 1,640 gallons of blood through more than 60,000 miles of veins, arteries, and tubing. Your lungs contain more than 600 million oxygen filters. Your brain uses billions of nerve cells to remember every perception, every sound, every taste, every smell, and every action you have experienced since the day of your birth.
Your body’s natural state is health, or ease, not dis-ease. Its over 4 million pain-sensitive structures, 200,000 temperature detectors, and 5,000 touch detectors are designed to collectively alert you when your body is out of balance, in some state of dis-ease. As your body’s inhabitant, and caretaker, your body depends upon you to maintain its natural state of health by providing its five basic needs: 1) clean air, 2) pure water, 3) natural food, 4) optimal exercise, and 5) healing rest. You also need to provide positive programming for your mind, a healthy emotional state, a soaring spirit, and then become your own best friend.
