The organs establish their excretion level based upon a dietary momentum that has been gradually established as one grows up. It is loosely based upon the data stream of consumption. Let it be noted that the excretion levels also determine the production levels. Thus in order to regularly excrete a certain type of fluids the bodily Organs must first produce it. It is like a big organization with requisition slips and the like.
Stomach: ÒMore meat again - Request meat acids from storage center.Ó
Storage center: ÒUh oh! My supply is used up - The acid producer needs to make more acids so that I will meet StomachÕs needs.Ó
Producer: ÒYou want me to make more stomach acid to digest that meat. Fine. Just be sure and use it. Remember the last time I made it, you didnÕt end up using it and it gave you indigestion.Ó
Thus one part of the body produces the excretion, i.e. hormone or whatever, one part stores it, one part uses it, and one part organizes everything. The juices donÕt just immediately exist available for use - as is seen clearly with the vegetarian who had to be hospitalized after eating meat because his stomach hadnÕt learned to produce the necessary enzymes.
Further - just like food - the fresher the better - It is best for the storage stage to be a short as possible - Hence the system that makes the digestive enzymes or hormones attempts to make just the right amount so that it is used as quickly as possible. It takes a reading on the normal daily usage, based upon a decaying average with decaying deviations. It makes a little more than is needed assuming that the disposal system will rid the System of any excess. Therefore on a daily level it is important to produce just the right amount - too little and the stomach doesnÕt have enough to digest - too much and the waste system has to work too hard or isnÕt able to dispose of it properly. The residual acids will certainly cause damage if they are not removed from the System regularly. With fluids this happens every time you pee; with solids it happens about once a day with the bowel movement. Because Purification can only be done at a certain daily rate it behooves the producer not to create too much. Anything that further taxes the System will further tax the purification system leading to the inability of ridding the body of all the toxins.
This mechanism leads to a certain momentum - the organs used to producing, storing, using and eliminating the various enzymes, hormones, and acids the body needs to regulate its operation - need regularity in order to produce and use the right amount. Anything that disturbs this regularity gives the body stress, because all of the production levels must be changed. If the System is used to disposing of the rancid grease from deep fried fast food, this means that its Organs are producing and storing the appropriate fluids, in expectation of their use. If the Deep Fried Grease is not forthcoming then the fluids themselves must be purified from the System, causing a certain amount of distress and discomfort. If the Deep Fried Grease has been incoming regularly, then the Fluids produced, stored, and used to digest them are also produced regularly.
The amazing Body adapts itself to any diet, not instantly but gradually over time. Also these complex responses have a momentum of their own. Thus the Organ that produces the acid that will digest the Red Meat, will take much longer to adjust to dietary changes if it has been producing this acid for a longer time. The duration of the production and the age of the organ are related to its flexibility in terms of dietary changes. My fatherÕs body had adapted to a steady diet of alcohol. The doctor told him that if he stopped drinking he would probably die from withdrawal. What he really meant was that the excretions from his internal organs would kill him because they needed the alcohol to balance their activity. Indeed whenever he stopped drinking for even a day he would get incredible stomach cramps and nausea, which would eventually get so bad that he would start drinking again. The tiniest sip of Scotch would immediately a little relief; more would bring a greater relief; and then intoxication, but at least he wasnÕt soberly writhing in pain with stomach cramps while vomiting.
The flexibility or rigidity of the OrganÕs response to diet is based upon oneÕs dietary momentum. If oneÕs dietary momentum is very narrow then the response is very narrow. The narrower the response band the harder it is for the Bodily Organs to adapt to new foods. Those that have a hard time with new foods generally have a very limited and narrow diet.
There are always two ways to change oneÕs dietary momentum: extremely or gradually. The extreme approach is sometimes necessary with extreme addictions that threaten the health, but the gradual approach is recommended for permanent changes. This is based upon the theoretical work surrounding Data Stream Momentum and the Emptiness Principle.
