When individuals drink alcohol or use drugs, people call them intoxicated or stoned because they intake toxic chemicals. Another form is that body itself creates toxicity which involves various physiological chemicals. Our responses highly rely on the right quantity of these chemicals. Increased amount of such chemicals in our body is termed as toxicity such as cholesterol, if its amount exceeds the certain level it will act as a toxin. Similarly, high level of glucose in blood stream becomes toxic. But human body also has the capacity to heal this toxicity. For example, during intense exercise our body produces lactic acid but with appropriate rest this chemicals converts into pyruvic acid. Whether lactic acid is toxin but pyruvic acid is healthy.
So there is a need to understand our physiology. If anyone is not taking appropriate sleep, toxins will jump in. If anyone is tolerating hunger, toxins will be produced. Human life is highly associated with such chemicals, even our feelings. The feeling of love is also associated with a physiological chemical, known as oxytocin. In comparison to men, oxytocin is highly produced in women. That is why love is the domain of women, although men can learn to love through behaviors. So, we can learn to schedule our breakfast, lunch and dinner before our empty stomach produces toxins to cause feeling of hunger. Important is to promote such learned behaviors for healthy lifestyle.
