Among the most important features of the human body that we must be aware of is homeostasis.
Homeostasis is not a collection of organs, but a synthesis of bodily functions that collectively keeps the entire body stable. In order to keep homeostasis at optimum it must have access to an adequate supply of energy.
Our body’s energy comes from the sun. We can take energy directly from it or from any of its storage media, e.g. farm produce, seafoods, water.
In order to keep our body’s health at optimum, we need to maintain a sense of balance between energy acquisition and utilization. An oversupply of energy could affect the whole system just the same as the inadequacy of it. Overworking or excessive stress is another.
The types of food that we eat should not only provide the energy but must strike a balance between acidity and alkalinity, too. This is obviously hard to accomplish for the fast food fanatics, but that is plain, hard truth, i.e. fast food stuffs are not healthy. However, you cooked it, homemade meals are still better.
The amount of water that our body must be nourished with should not fall below a level which hampers the liver and kidneys from flushing those toxins out. Please refer to our homepage for the minimum amounts.
Being conscious of what we do and take in make homeostasis perform a lot better. And when it is functioning properly, the chemical balance would surely reflect into our positive physical and psychological dispositions.
But the most important thing to understand is that homeostasis itself will do the balancing act internally for you, and you don’t need to be an “expert” or you don’t need to know exactly how it’s done. It’s completely automatic just like your own auto-immune system.
But as always, it is to your advantage that you have some level of understanding what it is.
