Your body is beautifully and elegantly created by God to repair and renew itself. It’s intelligently designed with an innate ability and power to heal itself. Every system constantly works toward keeping you healthy and remaining in balance. It’s truly amazing.
Unfortunately most people consider their body a machine – almost like their car. It slowly deteriorates as it ages, especially if you don’t take very good care of it, and it constantly needs “maintenance” from doctors and drugs to repair the parts that age or are damaged. I don’t see it that way. Don’t get me wrong – I have no problem going to a doctor if I need to. Thank God for them! However, I believe your body is created to heal itself. In fact your body performs this function continually, day in and day out whether you are aware of it or not!
Think about it – if you cut yourself, what happens? Your body takes over and begins healing that cut. If you break a bone, the same process kicks in. It was thought that brain cells could not regenerate and once they were injured that was the end of that. But research has proven that this is wrong! Heart cells damaged by a heart attack were thought to be dead forever. That’s been proven wrong as well – that heart tissue can repair and regenerate itself.
Your body continues repairing, renewing, regenerating and healing itself as long as you live – regardless of your age! There is a “catch” however. You do have a part to play in this process. You must provide your body with the raw materials it needs to perform this function. We’ll get into that in the next post!
