Final Impressions:

We should respect the symptoms of our body the most. It teaches us to be more balanced in life. We need to preserve and take care of it.

On the positive side, for once we should stop and think, how our body is functioning? Its checks, balances, immune system, its abilities to hear, see, taste, talk, walk, write or hear, automatic working, we should be grateful, for many of the things our body does which we do not even have an understanding.

Without a doubt in my mind, I can say the Human body is God’s greatest masterwork, the brain of a human is the most intricate but orderly set matter in the whole universe. We can say that we are more than the chemicals that form our body, definitely a special piece of God’s workmanship, the circlet of the formation.

In simple words, it relentlessly teaches us to listen to it and not take it for granted.

I am sure, we are all shocked to know so many amazing things happening within our body, but am also sure we all learned so much more about our body both scientifically and spiritually.
