Our internal Neanderthaler.

Today, I will tell you my theory about the quality of our food.

One of the most frustrating things I have learned in the past years is that many people find it very difficult to invest in their own personal health. Most people don’t really want to change, because they  see no harm in their way of living. When I say that they are wrong about that, they just thrug their shoulders. Even when they start to show signs of physical complaints.
Even then, they stick by their belief. Mostly they think it will take too much energy to change their lifestyle, that’s why they choose to do nothing about it.
Why are people so indifferent?
The answer to that question most likely lies in our DNA. According to evolutionary biologists our ancestors survived several million years ago, by following their tribe. When everybody in the forest started to run, fleeing from some alien species, it was very smart to follow them. And if you saw your fellow tribesmen eat certain foods, you knew you should follow their example.
After millions of years, these lessons are anchored in our DNA. We learnt, through experience, that, in general, it was best to stay with the tribe and follow it’s customs.
According to scientists,this behaviour is deeply anchored in our limbic system.That’s the system responsible for our basic instincts and emotional intelligence. But there’s a third part that lies in our human brain. This part developed itself later on in our evolution.It’s called the neocortex. It’s the part responsible for our rational thoughts. The neocortex gives us the possibility to form opinions, to weigh our possibilities, to make plans, calculate our risks, etc.
Our primitive system was responsible for helping our species to survive in the Stone Age and our neocortex made it possible for us to become rational beings: Homo Sapiens.

In theory, that means that we can now use our brain = ratio to make clear decisions.

But when it comes to making decisions about our personal health, as a Homo Sapiens, many  of us times left our ratio behind in the forest, and just followed the rest of the tribe.

Our environment.

We live in an era where the tribe no longer regulates our behaviour. We live as individuals, next to each other in an environment where there is too much noise, too much light, too much motion etc. The small piece of ground we have at our disposal, our living space, is much too small for us. Where once there was enough food around us to fulfill our needs, now we need to perform many tricks to get the food we need. These artifices provide us with the quantity we need, but not with the quality we require

The poor quality of our food is one of the reasons why our health is not at it’s best. Our immune-system needs a certain amount of vitamins, minerals etc. to function properly.

For obvious reasons we can’t get the required amount out of our daily  dose of vegetables and fruit anymore. As a result, our bodies don’t function  properly anymore. We notice this by the signals our bodies send us. But frequently we don’t take these signals seriously.

Many times you hear : ‘o, I always have that’, or, ‘everybody in our family has that’. Eventhough they don’t bother you too much, that doesn’t mean it’s normal.

The thought : if more people suffer from it, it must be normal, is not a healthy one. Without exaggerating, I can state that it can even be dangerous. I would like people to start using their common sense.

We’re not herd animals anymore.

Next time I will offer you a solution to improve your health. And keep it healthy. It’s a way to improve the quality of your life in a measurable way.

And only yourself can do that.

Nobody else but you.
