When the clocks change but the time doesn’t…


…biorhythms go haywire, literally. Why the time change thing then when it’s such a drag? There’s no logical reason, but then it affects our thinking. It’s a perfect example of when our collective mental constructs do not match reality; the bi-annual increase in the bi-polar mind body split is another manipulation that can adversely affect our lives unless we take meaningful action.. .for example see rt.com/news/199464-winter-time-russia-clocks. Going back and forth, back and forth, for no viable reason is in itself dysfunctional, in a true laissez-faire economy artificial inefficient practices would be done away with in no time literally.

So what time is it really? Changing the clocks was originally instituted as a crisis response to save electricity for war production during winter. And sad to say it’s been allowed to continue to evoke the scarcity cog mentality by disorientating our perception of what the times really are.. Even to the point that some weird rhetoric’s being proliferated that because ‘circadian’ and ‘biorhythm’ are being used interchangeably these semantics somehow make the natural rhythms of a living organism invalid. No one’s that much of a fool, we know we can’t change the fact of movement through space. We’re living in a fantasy if we think we can alter the laws of physics, the ticking clock waits for no one. What we can do is change our response to that reality to improve alignment with the universal principles which determine quality of life.

It’s time to accept time for what it is, not what we think it is, an objective measurement not a willy nilly manipulation. Shifting clocks can disrupt sleep and reduce productivity, the effects can be severe and last for weeks. A 2008 Swedish study found that heart attacks are more common during the first three weekdays following the start of Daylight Saving Time. More automobile accidents reportedly occur on the first Monday following the start of Daylight Saving Time than at any other time of the year. It seems that our body can tolerate the stress of getting up earlier in the fall better, but it can’t deal with an arbitrary clock change that also involves a mental shift of perception.

Compromised mind/ body integrity in the long term is believed to have significant adverse health consequences on our organs, particularly in the development or exacerbation of cardiovascular disease. According to the American Journal of Physiology in an article on Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, “Circadian rhythm disorganization produces profound cardiovascular and renal disease…” Plus, the suppression of melatonin production associated with the disruption of the circadian rhythm may increase the risk of developing cancer.

So how can we take back IQ EQ PQ integrity and stop the profanity that leads to degradation of our body temple? As Dr. Herzog mentioned protein cells play a key role in time-keeping, which of course requires pH fitness. Restoring acid base equilibrium returns normal function to protein cells otherwise they can become deformed under acidic conditions, which can happen under any kind of emotional, mental or physical stress. I’ve also found that keeping at least one clock in the house set to the right time all year around helps protect from internal contradiction. And of course I do pHx daily to maximize electrolyte flow throughout the body interconnecting all organ systems necessary to balance body pH (without which complete mind body integrity isn’t possible). Body’Fit pHx is a great way to get rid of jet lag and restore biorhythms very quickly.

Enjoyment Frees our Body/Mind

Human beings have a built in survival mechanism… the sensation of pleasure and pain. Culture emerges from our historical experiments to seek ways to improve our enjoyment of life. In many ways such as art, music, and dance we have succeeded, while in other ways we have failed dismally.

That pain and discomfort restricts not only the movement of our body, but of our mind as well, this has been well known since antiquity. We now know when pain goes into the  body, the acidic condition results in crystalized deposit of lactic acid which anesthetize nerve endings. The subsequent numbness in our nervous system ultimately impacts the corresponding area of the cerebral cortex reducing our capacity for free thought. This knowledge has unfortunately been used for everything from brain washing to the repression of slaves in an attempt to secure a more pleasant life. 

The “no pain (for some), no gain (for others) way of thinking has affected every aspect of our lives. For example, do you live in a region where a synthetic time change occurs twice a year? In the autumn the clocks ‘fall’ back by one hour, and in the spring time jump forward by one hour. Our internal circadian rhythms however are not inclined to follow this pattern. When we lose that hour of time as the clocks ‘spring’ forward, we lose an hour of sleep, the deepest and most important hour of sleep. We cannot catch up… simply going to bed earlier doesn’t mean our body is going to want to sleep. This perpetual disruption year after year of our internal clock by manipulation of our external clocks tells it’s tale on our faces, in our health and vitality, in our creativity and productivity, and through the accelerated aging of our bodies. 

The pivotal question of our times is how can we thrive as a species despite external pressures that limit our freedom? Many of our problems are so ingrained in our society they seem insurmountable. Yet within the deepest imbalances, lies the key to the solution… enjoyment. We have no control over external events, in fact, the only thing we have control over is our own mind. However the well-being of our mind is limited by the health of our body. Seek to find enjoyment through health and well being, and free both body and mind.
