What happens when you stop smoking? The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when you get out of the way!

Cut your finger and immediately your body begins to heal. The blood coagulates to form a clot and stop the bleeding. There may be a slight scab as this heals over. Then the scab heals and the skin forms and grows. Then. as long as no bacteria or toxins get in the way, the skin heals back to normal.

If you break a leg the doctor takes x-rays to re-align the bones into proper alignment.

The doctor then forms a cast to hold the bones in place and let the healing begin.

However, it is your body that takes over and does the healing magic of reforming bone
back into a strong and steady structure so that you may walk again.

This amazing healing ability lives within each and every one of us. When everything is
in alignment, as long as no toxins get in the way, your body has the ability to heal.
