Thoughts Teeth and Fear

This week I am reading Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
by Weston A Price. Price went searching the world for people with good teeth and bones and he found them. Further, I am struck by the fact that Price always comments on the joy and honor found in the people he studies. He comments more than once that there is little theft, although people leave their personal items around. In many ways it is a tribute to the trust of the people who leave their person belongings around as much as the lack of theft.

From an energetic standpoint this is important.

Price talks about nutrition and good teeth. From an energetic standpoint, good teeth and the lovely bone structure found in people eating a natural diet signal strong kidney energy. When the kidney energy is not strong a number of things happen. One of them, as Price points out, is that the teeth become subject to more decay. Bones are not as well formed and may break easily. Another thing that happens when people have weak kidney energy is that they are easily fearful. This does not mean that those with strong kidney energy are never fearful but that they are only afraid in moments where it is appropriate. Those with strong kidney energy are able to trust when appropriate, as Price observes in place after place.

Consider our nation today. Not only is a person without cavities a rarity, but we are ruled by fear. We are led by advertising that tells us we should be afraid of what will happen to us if we do not buy this product. We should be afraid that we will not be loved, strong, safe or accepted if we do not listen to these advertisers. We are afraid if we do not vote for the proper candidate our lives will be ruined. We are afraid of anything that is different from us. Advertisers and politicians play on our fears. The more afraid we are, the weaker our kidney energy and the harder our body has to work to not be afraid and to keep us healthy.

No wonder our health is so poor. We have poor nutritional options. We are afraid. Those who are afraid and think that money will help them be less fearful prey upon our own fears, thus making us even less healthy than we were to begin with.
