More on, The Care of the Cell

Today continues a series of short posts on the connections between the health of our bodies, nutrition and the health of our cells. I can tell you this: the relationship between nutrition and health is not casual; it’s causal.

“Human beings originate from a single cell. This cell divides into two other cells, which in turn divide themselves and this division continues on indefinitely. In the course of this process of structural elaboration and construction, the embryo retains the functional simplicity of the original single-celled egg. The cells of the human body seem to remember their original unity, even when they have organized and become the elements of an innumerable multitude. Each cell understands spontaneously and intuitively the functions required of them inside the organized whole. This innate knowledge of the part they must play in the manifestation of a healthy, wholesome body, is a consciousness or mode of being inside each and every cell.”

Man the Unknown, Alexis Carrel (1935)

Please read those last two sentences again slowly: “Each cell understands spontaneously and intuitively the functions required of them inside the organized whole. This innate knowledge of the part they must play in the manifestation of a healthy, wholesome body, is a consciousness or mode of being inside each and every cell.”

What if each one of us is a “cell” inside the body of humanity? What part must we play in the manifestation of a healthy, wholesome humanity? And how can we know, find out, discover what part we are to play? What is our destiny?

Physical health is the foundation upon which we build the rest of our lives. The quality of our physical health is determined by the quality of the life of our cells. Cells are amazing. Cells live amazing lives! The cells inside our own body perform countless miracles every second of every day.

We need to take better care of our cells.

Time heals all wounds once we find and do the things that nourish our cells best!
