Yes, – the truth!
The most efficient waste management system on the planet is our own body, until we mucky up the works with our current life style habits!
The most understood definition of waste management (in industry): The collection, transportation and disposal of garbage and waste products. This encompasses management of all processes and resources for proper handling of waste materials. This then is the everyday world of garbage collection and removal.
And this is also what our body does for us, 24 hours a day … if we let it.
The further we stray from providing what our body needs so it can take a raw product, turn it into fuel, and then discard what can’t be used, the further we are from optimal health.
Here’s another way to think about this. Right now. Take a cup of sugar and poor it into the gas tank of your car! I can hear your thoughts. Are you kidding me? That would really mess up my cars ability to run! We do (most of us) maintain our mechanical transportation. So, why not the most important one?
The body is our own personal (one of a kind) biological vehicle that needs the same care and maintenance to effectively do it’s job. When the body can’t do it’s job of waste removal then negative things begin to happen:
The build up of cholesterol and calcium deposits; the breakdown of celluar structures into free radicals, plus the added complication of manufactured chemicals counterbalancing what we are either ingesting or reacting to (stress) create a weakness allowing disease to enter our body. The body can not protect itself from invaders, much less do it’s job of removing waste if we are overloading it everyday.
Just some food for thought. Do a little research, you might be surprised at a few simple things you can do to improve the maintenance of the most important form of transportation you have – your body! Your life may depend on it. Well, actually it does!

The greatest gift we receive in life is … life.
Then the day arrives when we come face to face with danger, the unknown, loss of a loved one, disease, – the scariest things in life.
We become so overwhelmed by fear that we can forget to be brave, forget we are not alone, forget we can overcome and forget … yes, forget that we are loved and all is possible … one step at a time.
For each of you facing your fears, here is a gentle and loving reminder,
