Why do people not feel “unwell” even when they are living a toxic lifestyle?
If you put a frog in a pot of cold water and slowly bring it to the boil then the frog will boil to death. This is because the frog does not notice the gradual change in temperature. The frog does not notice what is harming him and he does not realise he is dying.
If you put a frog in a pot of boiling water then he will immediately feel the pain and jump out.
Just because you do not notice the small changes in your declining health it does not mean it is not happening.
Some people smoke 20 cigarettes a day, drink alcohol everyday, eat takeaways and processed food all week and they go out all weekend but they feel okay.
If a “clean living” person switched to this lifestyle for a day, they may feel like they are dying and it may take them a long time to recover. They could actually die due to the shock to the system.
We get used to what we do and some times it can seem unfair if a clean living person can feel the impact of unhealthy living, for example, just a little bit of bread may affect them more but their friends seem to get away with it.
But disease does not happen overnight, although sometimes it can seem that way. One day you feel fine, the next day you have been diagnosed with X disease…”
When the body has been dis-eased for many years but it has not been noticed, it has been ignored, or compensated in other ways. The body may only show ill signs and symptoms in the late stage, but it might be too late.
Although we have the stress of 21st century life, we are lucky living in Cornwall, with easy access to fresh air, open space, the sea and sometimes sunshine. Living in a big overcrowded city can be stressful and comes with a lifestyle which would overwhelm a person from century's past.
The frog analogy is a perfect way to describe how that we may not notice the negative impacts we put on our body creating ill health, it is still happening and we might not realise until it is too late.
