“You only get one body, so treat it right!” You’ve likely heard this at least once in your life and probably from the mouth of a reputable healthcare professional. And while that statement is true, for the most part, there are areas of your body that can not only heal but regenerate.
In fact, regeneration is the natural state for many cells and tissues throughout the body.
These Six Areas of the Body Have Powerful Ability to Regenerate
There have been numerous studies exploring how the body manages disease and healing. Researchers are leaving Western medicine searching for ways to return the body and healing practices to the natural state.
Six areas of the body have huge regenerative properties, and it just so happens that these areas are essential to the body’s overall health. Regenerating these areas not only improves health but can extend life.
This means more efficient disease management that results in eradication, not just control and keeping symptoms at bay. It means that the entire body is healthier. It means a decreased need for medical care – and the conventional medical community is running scared.
These are the key areas that have strong regenerative properties and the substances that support them:
- Lion’s mane mushroom
- Red sage
- Royal jelly
- Trigonelline (coffee)
- Korean ginseng
- Vitamin E
- Gymenna sylvestre
- Nigella sativa
- Vitamin D
- Bitter melon
- Corn silk
- Siberian ginseng
- Red wine extract
- Geum japonicum
Cartilage, Joint, and Spine:
- Fish oil/nettle/vitamin E
You will notice that each of these areas is integral to sustaining life and makes up the body’s infrastructure.
Feeding Your Body for Regeneration
Feeding the body the right foods, the foods it needs to restore its natural regenerative properties, is the first step in bringing it to that optimal state of wellness. In addition, different tissues and cells respond to different substances, so incorporating foods and supplements rich in specific compounds will feed those areas, and you will reap the rewards of a healthier you.
In addition, regular exercise is very beneficial to the body. It helps with flexibility, mobility and circulation while helping to maintain a healthy body weight. However, specific exercises like Tai Chi have been shown to be exceptionally beneficial for people with osteoarthritis, heart failure, and COPD.
Maintaining a healthy, balanced (organic) diet is the foundation for good health. Incorporating the foods containing these substances and adding supplements as needed will give your diet a nutritional boost. For instance, celery contains Apigenin which is essential for nerve regeneration. Likewise, broccoli sprouts contain sulforaphane that helps to regenerate beta-cells, as do Swiss chard and avocado.
Supplements round out the program, providing vital compounds beneficial to the body and stimulating regeneration of the tissues and cells.
Regenerative (functional) medicine is the missing component to a long, healthy life and the dramatic reduction or even eradication of chronic disease and even certain cancers. The stronger and healthier the body is, the better able it is to fight disease.
Bottom line: the stronger the body’s infrastructure is, the stronger it is as a whole. If you need “extra help,” seek coaching advice from an integrative healthcare provider and/or health coach.
