No matter who you are in the world, there is no escaping the natural and physiological laws to life.
These rules explain how the body functions and hopefully by the time you finish reading this you will have a better desire to abide by these rules. Breaking them just breaks the body and none of us need that. This list is gathered from the work of Victoria Bidwell and aligned with holistic nutrition and living. Holistic being clean and whole, as in, complete in nature. Some lifestyles are not for everyone but learning to treat the body in a holistic way is healing and has worked for me for the last 4 years. I hope they work for you.
Life's Great Law
Your body WANTS to succeed.
Every living cell of the organized body is endowed with an instinct of self-preservation, sustained by an inherent force in the organism called "vital force" or "life force." The success of each living organism whether it be simple or complex is directly proportional to the amount of its life force and inversely proportional to the degree of its activity. (The Medical Mentality at Its Very Worst overrides Life's Great Law with propaganda to program The People into thinking that the 75 trillion cells of the body which make up "human life" must, without question and at all times, be subjugated to the dictates of The Medical Doctor and that lasting, reliable, dependable health and even "life" itself comes only through such subjugation. In fact, absolutely everyone in society is expected "to have" a Medical Doctor!)
The Law of Order
Every cut heals.
The living organism is completely self-constructing, self-maintaining, self-directing, self-repairing, self-defending, and self-healing.
The Law of Action
Effort brings change.
Whenever action occurs in the living organism, as the result of extraneous influences, the action must be ascribed to the living thing which has the power of action and not to the lifeless, the leading characteristic of which is inertia.
The Law of Power
Poisons don't heal. Your bodies power to purge does.
The bodily power employed, and consequently expended, in any vital or so-called "medicinal action" is vital power used up (or "expended Nerve Energy"), in other words, "natural power from within and not from without."
The Law of Distribution
Your body handles its business without your consent.
The power of the body, whether that power is great or little, is distributed in a manner proportionate to the importance and needs of the various organs and tissues of the body.
The Law of Conservation
Adjusting energy by any means necessary.
Whenever nutritive abstinence is affected to bring about improved health, the living organism's reserves are conserved and economized: living structures are autolyzed in the inverse order of their usefulness, while toxic substances are eliminated. This Law refers both to "Hygienic Fasting" and to "Hygienic Dieting for Weight Loss."
The Law of Limitation
Your body knows when enough is enough.
Whenever and wherever the expenditure of vital power has advanced so far that fatal exhaustion is imminent, a check is put upon the rebels against the further use of even an accustomed stimulant.
The Law of Special Economy
You keep greatness in your pocket.
The vital organism under favorable conditions stores up all excess of vital funds above the current expenditures as a "reserve fund" to be employed in time of special need.
The Law of Vital Accommodation
When it hurts so good.
The response of the vital organism to external stimuli is an instinctive one, based upon a self-preservative instinct which adapts or accommodates itself to whatever influence it cannot destroy or control.
The Law of Stimulation or Dual Effect
When the body is intoxicated.
Whenever a toxic or irritation agent is brought to bear upon the living organism, the body puts forth vital resistance which manifests itself in an action at once accelerated, but also impaired. The resistance diminishes bodily power precisely to the degree to which is accelerates action. The increased action is caused by extra expenditure of vital power called out, not supplied, by the stimulatory process. In consequence the available supply of power is diminished by this amount.
The Law of Compensation
The Food Coma.
Whenever action in the body has expended the substance and available energy of the body, rest is induced in order to replenish the body's substance and energy.
The Law of Selective Elimination
You naturally get rid of the waste.
All injurious substances which gain admittance by any means into the living organism are counteracted, neutralized, and expelled as fully as the bodily Nerve Energy supplies allow by such means and through such channels as will produce the least amount of harm to living structure.
The Law of Utilization
You do better in nature.
The normal elements and materials of life are all that the living organism is ever capable of constructively utilizing, whether it is well or sick. No substance or process that is not a normal-factor-element in physiology can be of any value in the structure of the living organism; and that which is unusable in a state of health, is equally unusable in a state of illness.
The Law of Quality Selection
Shedding dead skin.
When the quality of nourishment being received by the living organism is higher than that of the present living tissue, the organism will discard lower-grade cells to make room for appropriating the superior materials into new and healthy tissue.
The Law of the Minimum
It's all regulated.
The development of living organisms is regulated by the supply of that element or factor which is least abundantly provided or utilized. The element or factor in shortest supply determines the amount of development.
The Law of Development
Everything has a cycle.
The development of all or any parts of the living organism is measured in direct proportion to the amount of vital forces and nutritive materials which are directed to it and brought to bear upon it.
