For those who don't know, I have a bit of a history in Animal & Human Physiology, Nutrition, Biochemistry & Natural Medicine. Due to complete neglect and 'getting lost,' by taking a few 'wrong turns,' I've pushed all of this aside ... for too long.
I've learned that there is no such a thing as a 'wrong turn' or 'time lost' or doing the 'wrong' thing - things all happen for a reason ... such is the journey of life. Everything can be fixed by changing from being 'unskillful' to being 'skillful' again - there is only one time to do this and it is NOW. It is the only time that means something and it is the only time when you are really present ... that is if you allow yourself to be there.
I've also learned that we sometimes do everything possible NOT to live in the presence of NOW, but to dwell either in the past or future. This causes us to deviate from our true path in life and take turn or 'short cuts,' only to be pulled back dramatically by the forces of nature. This causes us to go on a longer life journey ... proudly showing off the battle scars ...
We all carry ancient knowledge with us - either in our genes or from past life experiences ... this is why some things come naturally to us or feel so familiar. All this knowledge lives within us and by not being present, we miss most of it - we search for it 'outside.'
One thing is very clear and that is that 99.99% of our genes were formed before the Agricultural Age, which started around 10 000 years ago. Genetically we are all Hunter-Gatherers and we all are bombarded by very confused people 'out there' who tries their best to tell you otherwise - so that you can buy all the new stuff 'out there' ... you 'need' all of this, so that you can survive the New World.
Every true health specialist or immunologist out there will tell you that the most common allergens known to man are wheat, sugar and diary products. The reason for this is simple - genetically you are not designed to digest this ... yet, we are bombarded by the 'well educated out there' on an hourly basis - we need this stuff!!
Think about this: 65% of Americans are overweight and about 27% clinically obese. Last year Australia has by-passed the Americans for the first time when it comes to being overweight. All the newest research shows that fats in the diet are not the main culprit, but points without doubt to excess carbohydrates from our starch and sugar loaded diets.
Is it really that hard to be a Hunter-Gatherer in the Modern World?? The good news is ... NO, this can be done and many in the so-called First World are doing it. There are literally thousands of studies available, dating back to research done on remaining hunter-gatherers - as well as archeological and anthropological studies. The research is clear, our genetic layout is clear, the 'modern' world we live in is not ...
With time, I'll take grains, dairy products & carbohydrates ... break it down with all the current research available - just for my own benefit ... because I'm a bit rusty.
We raised our beautiful three children without most of this stuff and the results speak for itself. Over the years I have managed to change peoples lives for the better by sticking to the ancient knowledge. I have also managed to completely neglect this way of living, the only way of living, for periods in my own life. Within us lives two, sometimes more ... at least one of 'them' loves to be destructive in countless ways. There is a way to tame the beast and the best way is to return to what you're designed for ... what you're genetically programmed for. This is The Way ....
