The rainwater tank or rain barrel as a depiction of the ‘barrel model’. You cannot see how full it is and when it will overflow. Electrosmog, earth rays and water veins alone fill about half of the barrel.
The “barrel model” is often used to illustrate the dynamics between health and disease. Imagine a rainwater tank or rain barrel. Now imagine that it represents the body’s ability to respond to health-damaging influences. If you are a smoker, your barrel is filled to at least 10%. Any form of stress including weddings, divorces, relationship conflicts, deaths, funerals, deadlines and so forth contribute to how full the barrel is.
However, poor diet, lack of exercise, substance abuse, etc. can also fill your barrel. Electrosmog, earth rays and water veins are such strong sources of stress that they alone fill your barrel by 40% and sometimes by as much as 60%. As long as it is not full, nothing happens. Your personal barrel is the same as a real rain barrel—without opening it up and looking inside, you can’t gauge how full it is. You only become aware of how full it is when it becomes too full and begins to overflow.
Perhaps, before the barrel began to overflow, you felt completely healthy. Now that it has, however, individual symptoms are manifesting and you experience more and more of them. This will continue to happen if you merely treat the symptoms instead of going after the root of the problem. It is not uncommon for people to let an accumulation of symptoms or illnesses get out of control over time. If electromagnetic pollution has filled your barrel halfway, your body’s defense mechanism (immune system) isn’t able to do its job properly and you become more susceptible to illnesses. When you add stress in relationships and in the workplace to this already half-full barrel, it quickly reaches full capacity and the severity of symptoms increases. These symptoms may include:
- Lack of concentration
- Tightness in the chest
- Circulatory problems
If these symptoms arise then burnout isn’t far away.
