Part 2

Hi guys! It’s Jemma here. Hope life’s been treating you well since we last connected. Hope you’re enjoying those foods I listed down in Part 1, and have started to make the connection between the signatures of foods from nature and its relationship to our body. Don’t you just love the thought of this divine balance between nature and us women, and how nature is there to support us? This is another topic which I’m sure I’ll write about one day.

But today, I’m excited to bring to you the message of how are bodies are meant to move.


Part 2: Our Bodies Were Meant to Move!

How do you feel when you’ve taken that walk along the beach, gone for a run, finished a yoga class, a gym workout, a dance class, or that swim in the sea or perhaps a walk in the park or any other activity you prefer?

You know what I mean. I don’t know anyone who has come from any kind of exercise or activity and felt terrible afterwards. They may feel exhausted afterwards because they’ve pushed themselves, or because they haven’t exercised regularly. But in time, you feel more relaxed after exercise. There could be a change of mood and a definite experience of this kind of ‘feel good’ emotion. Have you experienced that? Do you know why?

It’s because of these neurochemicals called endorphins. They are released from the brain. These are the hormones your body produces when you do things such as exercise. Considered as the body’s natural painkillers, they help reduce stress levels.

What is the danger with stress? Well, if we don’t reduce our stress levels, we could increase our risk of developing cancer. Some studies have shown that a person with chronic stress is very susceptible to cancer, as stress weakens the immune system. Stress can also lead to obesity, heart disease, depression and many other illnesses. It can also lead to destructive, unhealthy emotional behaviours such as smoking, taking drugs, overeating and excessive alcohol.

A regular exercise program will help you keep a healthy attitude and work against depression and reduce any sickness. By moving your body, you could say it is like “preventative medicine”. Because moving your body will reduce stress levels and bring a balance of body, mind and spirit. This, in turn, will help you keep sickness and cancer at bay.

And guess what else. Besides behaving as a pain regulator, our little endorphin friends are also thought to be connected to the physiological processes that includes happy feelings or euphoric feelings, as well as appetite modulators. They also release sex hormones. So you can say that people who exercise more have a desire to be more sexually active and they maintain their weight and their wellbeing.

So I ask you: are these reasons great enough to tell you why we should move our bodies more regularly? I believe so!

Yoga, qigong and meditation are some great forms of exercises to help you attain all the benefits I’ve mentioned, as well as improving your flexibility, gaining strength, developing good body posture, developing a calm, focused mind and learning correct breathing. These are the keys to a better fitness, and a healthy and happier spirit and outlook in life.

Thanks again for joining me today. I hope I’ve encouraged those who haven’t taken up an active exercise program in a while. I advice you to take part in an activity that you would enjoy the most. For those who are recovering from illness, I highly recommend exploring a gentle type of yoga, meditation or healing qigong practice to help bring back health and balance.

If you’d like to read and learn from cancer survivors and those who have experienced the benefits of practicing yoga, meditation and qigong as part of their healing program, take a look at Ian Gawler’s website

For those who wish to watch a video of famous breast cancer survivors on Youtube, take a look at this link below:

On a final note, I would like to share a relevant quote from Hippocrates:

“All parts of the body which have a function if used in moderation and exercised in labors in which each is accustomed, become thereby healthy, well developed and age more slowly, but if unused they become liable to disease, defective in growth and age quickly.”

Thanks again. I look forward to joining you again for the next report coming your way in the next few days. I’ll be providing you with Part 3, on “What You Wear Can Make You Sick! Is There a Link Between Bras and Breast Cancer?

All the best, much love and take care until next time,
