Normal Life / Body Function
We are all operating within a mammalian body that has biological programmes. These are not ‘genetic’, but epigenetic.
We are all affected massively through what happens to our mum whilst she is pregnant with us. All the joy and traumas (not just food that go into allowing our genes to express- or not) and life situations shape us and our future lives.
To be a mammal means that we bleed and carry live young and feed them via mammary glands. That is what our bodies do. The acupuncture model explains via the Blood and Qi and Jing and this is why there is an extensive section on this site. It seems different only as it is so obvious when spelt out. Then you wonder why it is not covered at all by those following the science model. It may be assumed, but I find that the state of wellness is not now what we are seeing.
To show you the reader how you can alter your life is really the act of a healer – as your body knows how to heal itself. It is set to do so – when given the ingredients. In my books I use the self-help model based in the age old wisdoms through Asian medicine. The Celtic and European healing traditions that would have existed prior to religion and science taking over would have had different version of the life truths. Herbal medicines that had also stood the test of time as people have always gone to the garden and scrounged about nature to find that which assists the body to heal itself.
I do not use the ‘hormonal’ explanation – as the hormones are only as good as what they are made from and biomedicine skips that bit. What you eat and what you have had happen to you is seen as immaterial – yet all know that this is not so as they know that their lives changes when . . .
When a woman’s body is fully grown and the ‘fetal palace’ can fill and have leftovers – bleeding starts up. Whilst this is a non ‘scientific’ way of explaining the process of menstruation it serves the purpose. There has to be ‘leftovers’. Menstrual blood and sperm for men is made after what is needed for the reproductive unit (the adult) – to live well.
This means if she is starving herself or over exercising, normal baby preparation as with all mammals at puberty cannot happen and this shows as period problems. The body is preset to make a baby nest monthly, regardless of what she as a personality thinks that she wants to do with her life. Stopping periods as per what current medical ‘wisdom’ may say, is not smart as women’s bodies need to have the cycle. For her to be well and to stay functioning all through her life, so is designed to bleed.
Monthly bleeding when not pregnant indicates good health.
