Chronic Shock

English: A pH scale with annotated examples of...

Shock is a reactionary, emergency state. Shock is the result of trauma, such as physical injury, poisoning, or severe shifts in the body’s PH balance, blood sugar levels, or electrolytic balance. There are other imbalances as well, which the body may fight to adjust, taking essential components from one part to create a temporary support in another.

For example, our bodies are designed to be slightly alkaline, including the blood supply. If one’s intake of drink or food introduces high acidity, the body may find it necessary to pull the alkaline calcium from the bones in order to balance the blood’s PH levels.

Sugar intakes are a major source of systemic shock. Many do not realize sugar spikes in the blood are more damaging to the teeth than sugar-induced decay from actual contact. When blood sugar goes high, the body pulls essential minerals from the teeth in order to offset the imbalance. Did you know that?

Sugars, especially high-fructose corn syrup, and sugar from sugarcane, are shocking to the body. The pancreas can be highly stressed, and the insulin produced within the Islets of Langerhans can be depleted after repeatedly dumping insulin into the system in order to meet the emergency. Chronic over-stimulation of these special glands leads ultimately to their failure, and diabetes presents.

Alcohol is one of the most pervasive drugs, due to simple belief that it is not a drug. Drinking is widely popular, and drunkenness is a greater phenomenon than it should be.

Without detailing concerns, isn’t it enough for now to state that alcohol is poisonous to the body, and far from a healthy choice?

Food colorings are another consideration. These are actually synthetic chemicals in many cases, and are harmful to the human body. Symptoms identified commonly are hyperactivity, insomnia, asthma, skin irritation, eczema, and hives.

Yet another form of shock results from artificial sweeteners. What many do not know is they fall into the excito-toxin family. This means they are not sweet at all. The brain interprets them as sweet, you believe and perceive them to be sweet, but they are just a chemical. Similarly, mono-sodium-glutamate excites the brain, increasing perception of flavor, when in fact it is doing nothing but tricking the brain, and the cells are dying off in a frenzy.

If our families are suffering from a roller coaster of systemic shocks, it is unreasonable to seek difficult solutions, when all the while the simple resolution is in great evidence. Removing highly processed drinks and food from our diet is a good start. Artificial things usually use artificial coloring, a lot of sugar, and other sweetening additives.

Red punch isn’t red from all the strawberry juice in it. Most of the highly colored things we eat are fake, and partly toxic. And many foods are infused with sugar in order to get people to eat more of it.

Sugar is addictive. Once a child has been addicted to sugar, he can be induced to eat large quantities of almost anything, just as long as sugar is added to them.

I have seen children drinking large cups of sugary soft drinks. The parent sometimes fails to see things in proportion. The adult can drink 12 ounces of Coo-Coo Cola and barely notice it. He is consuming perhaps 1/2 ounce of sugar per 10 pounds of body weight. He is working on a good case of diabetes and doesn’t know it. But shockingly, the parent will hand the same 12 ounces to a child weighing 24 pounds, and the ratio is perhaps 2 or 3 ounces of sugar per 10 pounds of body weight. We should be watching ratios more.

Shocking the body’s systems is not wise. The body’s mechanisms for coping and adjusting are truly amazing, but the time comes when the coping is done, and the body begins to break down. If this is happening to you, don’t think ‘doctor,’ think ‘simplify.’

Successfully training our children means first of all nourishing them, and reducing shocks to their physical well-being. If a child is in physical distress, he should not be expected to exhibit exemplary behavior. Indeed, he may be acting crazy in order to sound the alarm.

    In addition to this another chronic condition is ‘Fight or Flight’. This is a great mechanism. It gave our ancestors the ability to react quickly and manage dangers they faced in the untamed world. Today, the mechanism is still at play. We experience it every time we almost rear-end another vehicle in traffic or some retrograde man or woman decides they want to settle some issue “the old fashioned way”. We no longer run from bears or wolves but, like a good ol’ flawed humans, we have replaced historical and real urgent threats with new dangers. For the most part these “perceived” threats are not real. They are imagined by the afflicted. These people stress out over everything. They are under constant and sustained stress, threat and danger. Our bodies don’t have the ability to differentiate between real and imaginary threats. When a person works themselves into a lather, and they runaround like lunatics freaking out over everything, the ‘Fight or Flight’ mode kicks in.

    First off, being in this mode comes at a huge cost and the expense is energy. The body burns energy that should have been used for normal maintenance and operation. Instead the energy is used to physically and mentally deal with the “emergency” situation. Endorphin’s surge, adrenaline is released, the heart rate goes up to increase blood flow and so on…

    Secondly, when in this mode the body does not care about proper digestion of food and other necessary things to sustain a healthy and balanced person. As far as the body is concerned, it’s being chased by a bear and staying alive right now is more important than sucking every last nutrient out the meal it just ate. Resources are diverted from normal systems and are diverted to the essential systems like muscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological. Think of people you may know who are always “stressed out”. Are they constantly tired? Do they have trouble falling asleep? Do they have digestion issues like diarrhea and/or do they loose weight? Do they have aches of all sorts? This list of questions could go on and on. Because the person is in ‘Flight or Fight’ mode almost one hundred percent of the time the body does not digest food properly, leading to malnutrition. Not concerned with digestion, food passes straight through a person body which explains diarrhea and weight loss.

    Being in this constant state can slowly destroy a persons body and drive that person insane. The person is breaking down both physically and mentally. How exhausted they must be. After all, they’ve been running from that bear twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week for the past decade. Their unnecessary worry got them in their current condition and then upon realizing the slew of aliments they have, they worry about that as well. It’s a vicious cycle that can crush a person unless they are able to gain spiritual and physical health and balance.
