I’d love to never ask this question again.
What happens to a frog when you put it in room temperature water and gradually turn the heat up to boiling point?
The body doesn’t register danger and it boils to death.
Are humans really so different?
Over a long period of time we develop habits that slowly erode our health and sense of well being and chalk up ailments like heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, poor digestion, depression and anxiety to aging. And then when we’re asked, “How are you?” we say, “Fine,” as if all these ailments are natural and normal.
What would happen if we allowed ourselves to eat what truly nourishes us best physically and emotionally? Perhaps the temperature of the water wouldn’t reach boiling point or if it got close, we’d feel the heat before it got too late; before we developed these chronic and degenerative diseases.
Then it wouldn’t be necessary to ask, “How does that make you feel.” Go ahead, try it. Put me out of a job. I’m all for it.
