In our society, one of the principle sources of physiological toxins is too much protein. Excess protein doesn’t have the immediate poisonous effect of strychnine or cocaine. However, when you eat more protein than your body needs to function optimally. A series of physiological changes is initiated it’s those changes that can lead to all manner of complaints. The second villain that undermines health and is a major cause of pain is improper internal Timing. Your body synchronizes an amazing number of functions. It simultaneously keeps the blood coursing through your veins, digests foods, assimilates nutrients, eliminates unusable parts of foods, contracts and relaxes muscles, processes chemicals, repairs itself—the list goes on. You stay relatively symptom-free as long as all of the natural physiological functions work smoothly. That’s Intelligence. Sometimes, however, the timing of one of these functions isn’t appropriate for the conditions of the moment. The concept of inappropriate timing can be explained by an illustration from daily life. Brushing your teeth is a “correct” action. It helps to preserve your teeth, keep your mouth clean, and avoid the pain that comes with dental neglect. However, brushing your teeth during a job interview isn’t appropriate. There’s nothing wrong with the activity itself—but the timing can be inappropriate. To convert that analogy to your physiology, when you run or exercise hard, your heart rate increases. This is a natural, normal, and necessary function to increase the oxygen supply to your muscles and to remove the waste products from them. If your heart weren’t able to increase its rate when needed, you wouldn’t have survived your first chase around the playground. However, for your heart to continue to beat at the faster rate after you have rested is inappropriate; if it does, your body is experiencing a timing problem. Most of people feel relief of symptoms brought about by incorrect timing. Muscles that should be relaxed are tense. Of course, if we couldn’t tense our muscles, we wouldn’t be able to move. A muscle that is continuously tense eventually becomes painful. Pain can be brought on by a perfectly proper physiological response that occurs at an inappropriate time. You may wonder why the body would do something at the wrong time if its internal intelligence never makes a mistake. Doing the right thing is never a mistake—inappropriate maybe, but not wrong. The body doesn’t judge an event good, bad, or appropriate. It just responds normally to all stimuli without judging whether or not the time is appropriate to execute the response. The information available to your control center serves as the database for patterns of response to every situation. The brain that directs everything that goes on in the body works with the information recorded there. Information recorded yesterday, last month, twenty, thirty, or sixty years ago is equally as usable as information recorded now, twenty, thirty, or sixty seconds ago.
