We are going to cover #1 on the previous page (raw materials, ie, food and liquids) in depth in future issues but to keep on track with this regeneration line of thinking, let's just say that the raw materials that you are putting into your body are of reasonable quality.
So, moving on to #2 what is it then that is responsible for the proper break down of the raw materials into a form that your body can use to feed your existing cells and create your new cells? The answer is your digestive tract in general and your small intestine in particular.
So, focusing on point #2 above, it stands to reason then that if you want to create a stronger, healthier and more energetic you, making sure that your small intestine works as well as it possibly can should be a major priority.
By the way, did you know that your small intestine has 2,600 square feet of surface area? And that it is this 2,600 square feet that is responsible for absorbing the nutrition that comes from your digested food? It's important to take very good care of all that surface area because the lives of your cells depend on it.
And what about point #3, that is, the quality of the transport mechanism that delivers those raw materials to your cells? Well, that transport mechanism is your blood stream. Therefore, we also need to support the process that makes your blood stream healthy. That includes healthy red blood cells, plasma and other elements in your blood.
So, what this all boils down to is improving your small intestine function and making your blood healthier. But, remember that your body is constantly regenerating itself. So it's not just about improving your small intestine function and making your blood healthier.

This is one of the foundational principles you need to latch on to and remember if you want to improve your health and your energy; the fact that you are constantly creating new cells, new tissue and essentially replacing your body on a regular basis. Are you beginning to get the picture here?
Here's one more question for you. Guess what is responsible for rebuilding that massive 2,600 square foot surface of your small intestine? I'll give you a hint. It's exactly what creates all the other cells in your body. That's right, it's your blood. And that is what we are going to cover in detail in the next issue of Foundations Of Health; your blood.
Until next time, I want you to keep reminding yourself that your body is regenerating itself every second of every day. Keep this in mind when you begin to eat or drink something and ask yourself,
