Are we overdosing?

January 27, 2011

Food is a chemical just like many of the drugs and supplements we consume. all are made of chemicals from the periodic table were forgot about in our high school science class. Drugs (prescriptive, non-prescriptive, or recreational) have been a victim of overdosing, but has anyone ever discussed the possibility that the food we eat is a victim of overdosing? It is hard to fathom that such a wonderful part of the day can turn into an emergency response by the human body, and ultimately a nightmare of uncomfortable stress, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and…well, the list goes on and on. Yet, we continue on the same path. This is a major issue that many of us have never thought as relevant, but due to so many foods being easy to consume and readily available it has arrived: A Food Overdose.
With all the so-called healthy choices out there, it is becoming increasingly difficult to know what to eat. Many of us have given up because we have moments of improvement only to find that there is an endpoint and the results plateau or turn back to the direction they originated. Somewhere along the line we have overdosed on certain foods and our bodies have turned on us…or have we turned on our bodies? The continuation of eating in excess is surely us turning on our bodies. Our bodies are merely trying to respond by balancing the constant onslaught of what we ingest. When this happens, something has got to give and the body has to compensate to continue forward. Part of us wins and part of us loses. We might as well wish our bodies good luck that balancing act. And we think we have it rough just trying to balance a day of work. The main difference is we usually get a break for sleep.
When the body is stressed, it continues the search for a balance while you are sleeping. Well, if and only if you can sleep because you may be so far out of whack that it keeps you up all night while it tries to find peace. And you thought the reason you were wide awake was because of deadline you have next week. The stress you feel is not only emotional, it is also in imbalance in the chemical environment. Now, to find a way to correct this imbalance…
