A lot can be learned about a person from what he does NOT eat.
Digestion - the mechanical and chemical processing of food in the gastrointestinal (digestive) tract - is a complex process in which food is digested and absorbed by the cells. During digestion, macromolecules of food are transformed into smaller molecules, in particular, the breakdown of food biopolymers into monomers. This process is carried out using digestive (hydrolytic) enzymes.
After the processing process described above, food is absorbed through the intestinal wall and enters the body’s body fluids (blood and lymph). Thus, the digestion process is the processing of food and its assimilation by the body.
Digestion has features similar to the functioning of the brain, because the brain (or consciousness) processes and digests the intangible impressions of this world (man does not live by bread alone), and the stomach is material.
Digestion Recycling the Material Impressions of the World
Digestion is like breathing. Breathing, we absorb the environment, assimilate it and return what we have not used back.
The same thing happens with digestion, although this process is more closely related to the material level of the body.
The breath is controlled by the element Air, while digestion is subject to the inert element Earth
Therefore, unlike breathing, there is no strict rhythm here, the alternation of absorption and excretion of nutrients loses its clarity and acuity.
Digestion has features similar to brain functioning.
Because the brain (or consciousness) processes and digests the intangible impressions of this world (man does not live by bread alone), and the stomach is material.
- introduction to the body of the outside world in the form of material impressions;
- the division of these impressions into “useful” and “unprofitable”;
- assimilation of nutrients;
- removal of "useless" substances.
Before getting acquainted with the problems that may occur during digestion, it is useful to talk a little about the symbolism of nutrition. You can learn a lot about a person by what kind of food he prefers and what he doesn’t eat (tell me what you eat and I will say who you are!) .
For "supposedly" random phenomena in the most familiar processes, hidden relationships can be revealed. A person who wants to eat something specific shows a very definite state. When something “he does not like”, his antipathy can be interpreted in the same way as the choice of one of the proposed possibilities in psychological testing.
Hunger symbolizes the desire to possess, it expresses a certain greed. The food process is the satisfaction of our desire through the receipt, acquisition and saturation.
If a person wakes up a hunger for love , which is not adequately satisfied, then it will manifest itself at the bodily level in the form of love for sweets and goodies
Excessive love of sweets and goodies is always an expression of an unmet need for love. The double meaning of the word “sweet” is clearly manifested in expressions such as “you are my sweet.”
Love for sweets in children is evidence that they feel a lack of parental love. Parents, having heard this, immediately begin to object that "they are doing absolutely everything for their children." But “loving” and “doing everything for them” are not at all the same thing.
If a person eats “something tasty” all the time , it means that he clearly lacks love and attention. You should trust this rule much more than your own estimates.
When parents stuff their children with sweets , they symbolically make it clear that they do not want to give them their love and therefore try to compensate for its lack at a different level.
People who think a lot and do mental work need salty foods and good nutrition.
Conservative people prefer smoked meats, they drink strong bitter tea (this is usually food containing tannins).
People who like spicy foods are looking for new stimuli and new experiences. They like to receive a call, even if it is difficult to adequately respond to it.
People of the opposite type prefer sparing food - without salt and spices. Such people take great care of themselves and try to do without new impressions. They are afraid of confrontation, they do not like to "sort things out." Fear can lead them to the need to eat cereals, as the stomach begins to hurt badly “on a nervous basis”. We will talk about this in more detail.
Porridge is baby food. Passion for porridge of adults clearly indicates the desire for infantile infantility, in which there is no need to distinguish or decompose phenomena into components. They don’t even have to bite and grind food (because it looks so aggressive). Such people prefer to just swallow. Others dislike conflicts so strongly that one day they find themselves in intensive care, where they are fed intravenously - why is there no way to solve conflicts at the expense of others?
Fear of swallowing a fish bone symbolizes fear of another's aggressiveness. Fear of swallowing a bone is an unwillingness to have problems, because one does not want to penetrate the essence (core) of things.
But there is an opposite group of people who are looking for problems . They need to get to the bottom of things at all costs, so they like solid food. Reluctance to live without problems is striking.
If sweet is served for dessert, they definitely need something else to bite. In this way they demonstrate their fear of love and tenderness, more precisely, the fear of the difficulties that love brings with it.
