Find Out What Your Body Needs
By Meggan Larson
There are times in the battle of weight loss and health where absolutely nothing is working and in those times it is so very tempting to stuff our faces with everything in sight. We can easily tell ourselves that it doesn’t matter and that since nothing is working this can’t possibly make it worse, right? But it does make it worse, doesn’t it? We gain even more weight, break out in pimples, get bloated, retain water, etc. Wouldn’t it just be simpler to figure out what’s going on internally? It seems like an easy concept but how can it be done?
Last July I spent several days in Texas with some dear friends and while I was there I was able to get my body scanned by this super fancy machine (read $20,000 – $40,000 machine) and it knew things about my body that I was shocked about. It knew that my body was fighting the flu, and it knew that I was dealing with some serious self-disgust and a lot of fear. I hadn’t told anyone I was dealing with those feelings ~ not even my husband. It told me what essential oils and supplements my body was in need of so I ordered them and the transformation I’ve seen in myself has been incredible.
When I got home I raved and raved about this machine and wanted to fly my entire family down to Texas in order to get them all scanned. That didn’t happen. I found out that I could rent that machine for about $350 but I didn’t have that lying around so I just filed it in the back of my mind as something I would eventually like to invest in. Imagine my surprise when a friend of a friend found a company that lets you rent a small scanner for $39.99/month! I was so excited and it has not disappointed.
I’ve scanned my family several times (lol) and myself of course. It let us know that our 5-year-old was dealing with anger and rejection (which we knew) and suggested what products his body needed so we implemented that every night, prayed over him, and a week later I re-scanned him and none of those things came up! It just suggested an essential oil to help him focus during homeschooling (no surprise there! lol). For myself it highlighted some of my emotional issues and physical deficiencies and my husband told me just this week that he remembers when the pants I was wearing were skin tight and now they’re basically falling off of me.
The point is (yes, I had a point) that sometimes we need to get off the scale and figure out what is going on in our gorgeous minds. Our thoughts and our words can be far more damaging to our health than eating a cheeseburger. I know I’ve been on the emotional issue bandwagon for a while but it’s because I consistently see my friends gain and lose the same few pounds and they’re doing everything right. Or they’re self-sabotaging their efforts. There is a reason you’re doing this! It’s time to find out why. (If you are wanting to look into the scanner I talked about just click here!
