All diseases enter through the mouth
TICM teaches me that all diseases enter through our mouth and I am not talking about just food here. The most influential way to fight disease is through the food that we eat. Disease or illness is not caught but it is created slowly, over time as a manifestation of the body and mind.
This does not just refer to food only but to the words we speak and everything that we ingest on both a mental and physical level.
In TICM, we know that the body’s natural state is one of health and vitality. The body does everything it can to keep you healthy, what are we doing to keep it functioning optimally?
Do we speak good words and eat whole foods? Or do we gossip and eat from packages only? Food feeds the body and the mind equally.
TICM teaches me that a good word like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches high in the sky. The example of a bad word is like a bad tree, uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability. So do choose wisely xxx
