Great Expectations: A Common Sense Approach
What to expect as you begin your New Earth adventure!
The human body is a marvelously designed living organism with
the ability to grow, regulate, repair and defend itself when given
natural, high quality, and full spectrum nutrition.
-New Earth Nutrition Philosophy Statement
Understanding what to expect and knowing what to do when biochemical
adjustments begin to occur inside your body as a result of your
journey to better nutrition is the purpose of this section.
What you should expect is something that is already happening all
the time, but you may not notice... everything in your
biological life is constantly changing!
Given this biological fact of life, you should expect that...
Shift happens, change happens, and biochemical adjustments happen in every cell, tissue, organ, and
system of your entire body...whether you notice or not.
To know this fact (that everything is constantly changing) is one thing, but to fully understand, embrace, accept, and optimize it is quite another. It will be helpful to remember a few details about human physiology and biology. In
particular, the miraculous abilities of the human cell and the many wonders of a healthy digestive system.
We are relatively ignorant about
the miraculous nature of our body and about the things that nourish
The above is one of the great information gaps in our society. This information
gap is the San Andreas Fault running through the foundation of your
diet and could be responsible for many diet and lifestyle improvement
attempts in the past. The road to better health involves an understanding
and daily application of the fundamentals of sound nutrition.
Understanding the Fundamentals of Sound Nutrition:
(so much to eat...and so little time)
The human body is a marvelously designed living organism with the ability to grow, regulate,
repair and defend itself when given natural, high quality, full spectrum nutrition.
This means that when an individual makes the decision to follow through with
a daily commitment to improve their nutritional intake, or
diet and lifestyle...an entire series of biological
events result from the decision. It is unpredictable whether these
events will be perceived as a blessing or a curse.
When you make a conscious decision to improve, upgrade, or complement your
nutritional intake it is always a blessing. What is unpredictable is the precise way your
body responds to your decision, and the precise way that you choose to
respond to your body.
Without a simple, yet comprehensive understanding of how nutrition
works inside your body...even the very best health and nutrition
products can be perceived as a mixed blessing. Appearances can be
deceiving, but remember that a well-nourished body doesnít make
mistakes. When you introduce a new habit, food, or food supplement
that is complementary, biomodulating
and deeply nourishing, it may temporarily appear to be a curse
and not a blessing at all. This temporary transition phase results
from better nutritional choices and is often referred to as cleansing,
detoxification, natural healing, or cellular regeneration.
Whether you label your experience as a blessing or a
curse depends on how much (or how little) you understand about how your body
functions when nourished properly. We refer to this temporary
transition phase as a period of adjustment.
Any period of adjustment is the biological nature of human
beings to constantly move, change, adjust and transform...like
nature itself. Even though this phenomenon is regular, reliable and
in many ways predictable, it can also produce surprising and unpredictables results.
Remember, if you experience a period of adjustment it is always a blessing! The period of adjustment cannot
be avoided, it is an absolutely necessary and vitally important biological feedback mechanism
Understanding the period of adjustment is one of the keys to better health. Though it
cannot and should not be avoided, it can be managed, communicated with and understood.
Whether you are aware of it or not, your body has its very own health and healing agenda.
This agenda may or may not be in sync with your current diet and lifestyle agenda and choices.
Knowing what to do is one thing and doing it consistently is quite another!
Our body is constantly involved in the natural and biological process of
nourishing, cleansing, detoxifying, and regenerating. For
people whose dietary and lifestyle habits are established, this
biological process goes largely unnoticed, under-appreciated, and sometimes completely
misunderstood. In this way, even the most complementary diet and lifestyle decisions can
temporarily appear to be a mixed blessing or even a curse.
Donít be fooled by temporary appearances. Be proactive and willing to make
adjustments as you go through the period of adjustment. Continue to invest your valuable
time and energy to understanding how nutrition works inside your body. The
rewards are truly great. These rewards begin with a new appreciation
for the miracle our body really is, and continue to build and grow as we
prepare ourselves to experience a lifetime of optimum health and well-being.
The Miracle of the Human Cell
Each of our more than one hundred
trillion cells are involved in a perpetual cycle of biological balance and harmony 24-hours a day.
- Vital nutrients enter cellular membranes after
being selected by specific cells for specific purposes.
- Metabolic products are produced and utilized.
- Metabolic waste products are produced and then
identified, neutralized, and eliminated.
Many unnecessary and devitalized "nutrients", foreign, unnatural and toxic substances
penetrate the cellular membranes and enter the interior of our cells.
Once inside our cells, these undesirable substances
can be systematically identified, neutralized and eliminated
without interfering with normal cellular activity or causing any permanent
damage (within certain exposure limits). Normal or extraordinary cellular "wear and tear"
can be repaired. New cells can be created from pre-existing cells contributing to the
maintenance and growth of tissues, organs, and entire bodily systems.
This is all the normal metabolic functioning of healthy cells and depends on the
quality of nutrients we feed our cells. In this way all the cells of our body are being
nourished, maintained, repaired, replaced, and whenever possible - improved!
Conscious cooperation with the constantly moving cells (tissues, organs and systems) of our
own bodies is the surest path to a lifetime of optimum health and well-being.
Non-cooperation, whether intentional or unintentional, is the surest path to having our own
bodies manifesting a potentially endless list of symptoms of sickness and dis-ease both
chronic and acute...all of which are almost always preventable.
Fortunately, the fact that we are relatively ignorant about the miraculous nature of our
body and about the things that truly nourish us best, is easily corrected. There are
things we need to know and things we need to do. Learning to balance
knowing and doing is one of the fundamental tasks in the journey to better
Restoring the Health of our Biological Foundations...Our Cells.
Every cell in the human body shares three basic needs and functions with every other cell:
- Very specific requirements in terms of raw materials
or nutrients (mostly micro-nutrients, including water and oxygen).
- Produces a variety of metabolic products and waste
- Must exchange the beneficial products with other
cells in order to neutralize and effectively eliminate all the
Our cells support our tissue, our tissue supports our organs,
and our organs support our systems. When the basic needs and functions
of our cells are met, a healthy human life-span can be well over
one hundred years. Conversely, when these basic cellular needs and
functions are not met, life-spans of shorter duration with endless
possibilities for discomfort and disease can, and usually do occur.
It may help to imagine each cell in your body as an individual factory.
