Cultural Homeostasis

Recent events continue to show us that in the United States of America we need to work on getting along with each other and making sure that all that we do works in conjunction with our neighbors. 

It reminded me how our bodies work. The word homeostasis refers to how the human body and all the systems within it work together so our bodies function on a level that allows us to almost take for granted how incredible the human body is. Homeostasis refers to the cardiac system working in conjunction with the circulatory system, the central nervous system is working in conjunction with the autonomic nervous system, the kidneys are working in conjunction with our bladder, etc. etc. 

All of these are happening purely because of the innate wisdom of the body. This innate wisdom creates the homeostasis effect. 

So this is what we all need to strive for- to live together, work together, listen to each other, respect each other so we all get along without having to think about it. That is part of our makeup. 

Wouldn't that be terrific and isn't that something for us all to strive for. Getting along and not even having to think about it because it is just "who we are," just like our bodies. It functions without even having to think about it. 

Keep the faith.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Staff
