Hello Natural Health Family. Today I wanted to talk about technology. Science has come a long way and we have been introduced to many things that help us in our daily lives. However, when speaking of technology we tend to forget the power of the human body. I will briefly discuss some great aspects of the human body as it relates to health and functioning. 

Have you ever stopped and thought about all the different functions that your body performs every minute or even every second? I bet not. Your body performs many functions all the time including replicating millions of cells per second, defending you from bacteria and viruses, digesting your food, breathing without you thinking about it, pumping blood all around your body and so on. Isn’t it amazing that it does so much without us even having to think about it. Now to get even more precise. Your heart beats 2 gallons per minute through roughly 60,000 miles of blood vessels. Every cell in your body goes through the order of 100,000 to 6 trillion functions per second. Your body is made up of trillions of cells all working in an orderly fashion for you to go about your day. You inhale 2 million liters of air per day and within seconds the air is transported to every cell of your body. The DNA strand of 1 of the trillions of cells that make up your body if lengthen would measure up to 6 feet tall. The human body is an amazing piece of technology and is much more powerful than we may realize. 

Many people tend to think about the new best technology that is going to be the one thing needed to help eliminate illness and dis-ease. However, we forgot how powerful and remarkable the human body can truly be. It is by far one of the most highly developed technologies on the earth. However, we take for granted what it does for us everyday or our lives. But just like all technology in this world, if we don’t respect it and don’t take care of it then it can’t perform its functions optimally. 

To be healthy we must take responsibility for what we do during our lives. We should at the least eat the correct foods most of the time, drink enough water, move our bodies, and think the right thoughts. Everyone is capable of health because it is natural or normal to be healthy. Let’s instead turn our focus from the illness to what the body can do to bring about health.
