Why Our Body Is All Connected
Understanding how our body works in tandem is important if we like to live holistically. We aren't a collection or sum of body our parts acting separately.
It's important to begin looking at the state of our gut health as a cumulative effect of our body's health. Our body is a complete system: everything is connected. We are not simply a head that has been placed randomly and acts separately from the spinal cord upon which it sits. Our body relies upon these two components working in tandem to move our limbs that branch off from that spine to walk, move, talk, and complete any other functional movement.
All of the organs in our body are connected. If you have heard the phrase by Descartes “I think; therefore I am”, you might believe that it is as simple as that, thinking you are a singular being acting by only what your brain interprets as reality. This unfortunately does not relate to our common biology. Our reality is what our body creates through the interaction it has with every other organ either directly or indirectly.
When it comes to treating that health, the medical community rarely looks at anything more than simply treating what the end result might be: a disease, some body part that stops working, or even death. Determining the reasons for this is probably a good topic of conversation, but could it be that our health at this exact moment is simply the result of cumulative actions and reactions that have taken place since the moment we were conceived? If this approach is taken, it's easy to see that the medical community looks at only the end result, it's too daunting to take our life's journey into account.
Our complete life story and our daily habits contribute to what ails us today. It's difficult to say that because you drank coke for 10 years was the reason for your ulcers. It's easier to say it was your poor diet, plus the antibiotics taken to fix the food poisoning you had in college, plus the lack of exercise and physical activity over 40 years that contributed as well?
The health of one's body at this very moment is because of a cumulative effect of one's life's work, and in order to address any gut-related issue, it's important to look at it that way. Connecting our body altogether and understanding why our body is all connected can hold the key to long-term health.
