Health Beyond Danger
You and I have the power of choice. We can choose to be healthy.
Being healthy isn’t inspiring enough, though.
Let’s aim higher.
In the Taoist system of tonic herbalism, the goal is “radiant health.”
Radiant health is defined as “health beyond danger.”
Check out this summary of the concept of health as explained by Ron Teeguarden on his blog:
“Chinese tonic herbalism is fundamentally a proactive approach to achieving and maintaining radiant health. Chinese tonic herbalism in not medicinal – it is a “way” or “path” to achieving health, vitality, happiness, longevity and wisdom – qualities of life that the Chinese call “radiant health.” Radiant health has been traditionally defined as “health beyond danger.”
The Asian Art of Radiant Health is rooted in the fundamental principle of “the unity of opposites,” manifested as the Great Principle of Yin and Yang. The ability to achieve radiant health and great vital longevity chiefly depends on the ability of an organism to resist disease from within and to flourish by maintaining dynamic balance, vitality and a steady spirit even as circumstances change.”
A good friend of mine is going through something quite challenging at the moment.
Her father has developed a cancerous tumor in his digestive tract, and he’s about to have surgery to have the tumor removed.
The shocking thing about this is that if you saw her father, you’d think he’s the very epitome of health.
He exudes vitality. He’s thoroughly intensely impressively alive.
I’ve been sitting with the news of his cancer situation for several days now, and I’ve been returning to this profound idea of radiant health and “health beyond danger.”
Our health care system is in a state of total disarray.
It isn’t really a health care system; it’s a disease care system.
The cutting edge information on health is more available than ever before, yet you likely won’t discover how to achieve health beyond danger by going to your doctor.
The governments around the world have chosen to allow unhealthy foods to become the cheapest and most accessible options available.
The world is set up in such a way that if you don’t think about what you put in your body, you’re practically guaranteed to make poor choices that will result in preventable illness and death down the line.
The fact that the dire consequences of our simple daily food choices lay so far in the future means that it’s easy not to see just how deadly fast food, processed foods and pesticide-laden foods truly are.
If you want to achieve health beyond danger, you will have to break with the mainstream and strike out on your own.
Although I long for a world where it’s incredibly easy to make healthy choices and damn hard to make unhealthy choices, that’s not the world we have at the moment.
However, if you’re willing to do some research and really own the power you have to create radiant health in your life, we live in one of the most amazing times ever.
The information is out there if you want to learn it and apply it.
Some of the greatest minds on the planet have investigated the optimal human diet and discovered some amazing protocols that we can follow to build (or rebuild) our health.
We can detoxify.
We can live and eat simply.
We can learn to hear our body’s internal guidance system.
We can eat the best foods on the planet.
We can experience radiant health. Health beyond danger.
And a period of juice dieting can absolutely help you make a 180 degree turn in the course of your health and life.
Are you willing to do what it takes to experience health beyond danger?
