The Terrible Tangle of Food, Health, and the Economy, and How to Break Free


 
I’m going through an interesting shift right now that I want to share with you because I am coming out of an industrial orientation with this subject and into lifeliness.

I have had a lifelong struggle with overweight with this body…
This alternated with trying various weight loss diets of all sorts, which resulted in losing some weight but did nothing to re-orient me to a different way of eating or a new understanding about food, so I would just go back to eating whatever I wanted to eat and gain the weight back, plus more. This is the cycle for millions of people in the world today, particularly women.

It seems that in our modern industrial culture, food is considered something to be enjoyed rather than something that nourishes our body.

How Our Human Bodies Are Like Gardens

In our ongoing exploration of the industrial world and the world of Life, we find that there are certain themes that happen over and over again expressed in various forms.

Industrial medicine and industrial agriculture have in common the idea that things will attack the health of a body or a farm and the solution to keep the body or farm from being destroy is to kill that which is attacking. That is the purpose of pesticides and drugs that kill bacteria and viruses.

But there is another way. We know it well in organic farming and gardening. In the care of health it is known as terrain theory.

My Recovery From Cancer in a Lifely Hospital

Beautiful mobiles at UCSF cancer hospital uplift visitor’s gaze and put their attention on something other than their condition.

 

Since the beginning of December, I have been dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

I haven’t written about it here because there were a lot of unknowns and I didn’t want to give you all the uncertainties about this or have you worry about me.

But now that it’s over, I want to tell you what happened.

I had some symptoms at the beginning of December that scared me enough to rush to the Emergency Room. They did some tests and told me to go see my doctor right away regarding a “possible malignancy.”

I could not believe this. Here I had been living so nontoxic for so long, how could I possibly have cancer? The symptoms subsided, but after all the tests were done, my body, indeed, did have cancer.

Pure Body Liquid Zeolite—Removes Heavy Metals and Supports Your Immune System

If you’ve been reading my work as Debra Lynn Dadd for any length of time, you know that I’ve been a big fan of Pure Body Liquid Zeolite for years. I’ve been recommending and taking it myself since it first became available. From my own experience and feedback from my readers, I can confidently say taking it daily is one of the fundamentals of health living in today’s world.

Zeolite, a natural mineral, is uniquely suited to remove toxic chemicals. Tiny bits of negatively-charged zeolite act like little magnets to attract positively-charged particles–which include 99.9% of heavy metals, radiation, and organic chemicals–so they can be removed from your body via your kidneys.

Lifely Health — An Introduction

Like everything else in our lives, Larry and I are in the process of redefining health care according to lifely principles. This post is an overview of our current viewpoint on health care, which is continuing to evolve.

As I am writing this, my body is almost 65 years old. I’ve studied a lot about health and have survived several major health crises in my life, so I know a thing or two about the industrial medical system and the alternative health care system.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the best healthcare we can give ourselves is really good selfcare.

Sleep as Nature Intended

About ten years ago, I read a fascinating book that changed my ideas about sleep. Since we are approaching the Winter Solstice and many life-forms are below ground or hibernating, I thought I’d tell you about human sleep in pre-industrial times.

The book is At Day’s Close: Night in Times Past. It looks at night from every angle.

In our industrialized world, the idea is promoted that we should “sleep peacefully through the night” and if we don’t, there is something wrong and we need a sleep aid. Both drugs and natural remedies are sold to help us achieve this goal.

But, in fact, that we should sleep through the night is an industrial idea, maybe made up to sell more sleeping pills?

uite simply, this blog is about orienting ourselves and our lives to life, instead of orienting ourselves and our lives to industrial consumerism. Here we are sharing our own journey. You come too.

Debra & Larry Redalia
lifepartners + soulmates

For more than 30 years we have been delving into the nature and activities of life together. Indeed, this has been and continues to be the very reason we are together. With delight we research, explore, observe and even wake each other up in the middle of the night to discuss how life functions and how we can function as life—even while living in the modern world. We each are different from the norm, but we are different in the same way, so we have been able to think outside of the ordinary together and find the extraordinary workings of life.
