nutrient absorption, 10 tips to help the earth, rawviolis

Just a thought
When it comes to our bodies absorbing an utilizing nutrition, I think there is a lot more going on than just what foods and nutrients we put into our bodies. How we picture ourselves, believe ourselves to be - our state of mind, spirit and body have a lot to do with our state of health and our nutrient intake. For instance just as a shaman can absorb nutrients from a plant by just touching it, likewise if we feel we are poor, ugly, sick, unworthy, depressed we can block nutrient intake.
