It becomes more and more evident that our memories are not stored just in our brain, but also in our cells. Term ‘cellular memories’ became broadly accepted between researchers in the cell field, neuroscientists, and biofield practitioners — all our experiences positive and negative leave imprint on the cellular level. Maybe in my next blog, I will talk in more detail about positive and negative memories/energies, ours and not ours, that we carry in our bodies and how it affects our health physically and emotionally. I’m in the energy therapy field for almost 30 years, but today I would like to focus on our food.
Diet is such an essential component of mental health that it has inspired an entire field of medicine called nutritional psychiatry. Traditionally, doctors are not well equipped after medical school to discuss nutrition, and most patients do not seek dietary advice from their doctors. However, given the link between the gut and brain, it may be clinically useful for mental health clinicians to have a tip to share with their patients.
“Think about it. Your brain is always “on.” It takes care of your thoughts and movements, your breathing and heartbeat, your senses — it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. That “fuel” comes from the foods you eat — and what’s in that fuel makes all the difference. Put simply, what you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood.” Eva Selhub, MD
According to AAFP nearly One in 12 US adults report having depression. This statistic is based on adults who asked for professional help. The percentage grows every year. I discovered that an energy therapy session is much more effective in combination with the changes in the diet. I AM NOT PROMOTING ANY DIET IN THIS BLOG. There is a correlation between the decrease of family farming, the increase of industrial agriculture, and depression. One of my first recommendations to my client with emotional suffering is to reduce the amount of meat in their diet. It is a common practice in every religion to have meatless days and fasting. We are what we eat. The goal of industrial farming is not an animal’s welfare but to be more efficient, productive, and profitable. It is not my intention to paint you a gruesome picture. You can do your research if you wish. But if we agree that every tissue and every organ has their cellular memory, in this memory, they store animal pain, fear, and suffering. When we intake a steak or hamburger, we intake these cellular memories, and it affects us.
Energy therapy can significantly improve an individual’s emotional health when combined with the reduction in animal food consumption.
