“You take rotten care of your body, paying it little attention at all until you suspect something’s going wrong with it.
You do virtually nothing in the way of preventative maintenance . . . then you fill it with toxins and poisons and the most absurd substances posing as food. And still it runs for you, this marvellous engine; still it chugs along, bravely pushing on in the face of this onslaught. It’s horrible.”
Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God

Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.
Hippocrates (460 BC - 377 BC)

"Exercise ferments the humors, casts them into their proper channels, throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions, without which the body cannot subsist in its vigor, nor the soul act with cheerfulness."

"In movement, be as swift as the wind
In slow marches, be as majestic as the forest
In raiding and plundering, be as fierce as fire
In defence, be as firm as mountains
In camoflage, be as impenetrable as darkness
When striking, be as overwhelming as thunderbolts."
