The world is more polluted than 100 years ago. True or not true?
What is health? It will mean different things to different people. Generally speaking, it could mean having good energy levels, a strong immune system, great sleeps, being active without pain, clear glowing skin, bright eyes, ideal weight and feeling great mentally and physically.
Once upon a time (not a fairy tale) when the water was cleaner, the air was fresher and the food was more nutritious, our body had the ability to cleanse itself naturally. It hasn’t lost that ability but what goes into our body, including our thoughts, affect our health and general well being.
The process to disease according to the ancients (China and India) is the same. Gabriel Cousens M.D. describes it as the seven stages to disease in his book There is a Cure for Diabetes.
Dis-ease begins with toxins and chemicals, and nutritional deficiencies. Both interfere with the vital energy (everyone understands that everything is made up of energy) and the elimination processes. An accumulation causes the body to have a build up amount of toxins, also known as toxemia. There is the toxin theory which states that toxemia is the basic source of all diseases (John Tilden).
“Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and tissues.” – Bernard Jensen DC, Nutritionist
Toxins come from internal and external sources: dead cells, metabolic waste, cellular debris, emotions, impure water and air, processed foods, all drugs (medical, herbal, supplemental, tobacco, alcohol, all forms of recreational drugs), pesticides, herbicides, skin care, building materials, household cleaners, radiation or electro-magnetic frequencies (EMFs), and more.
These toxins affect our energy. Where is your energy today? A build up of toxins, like a messy home or dump site, causes irritation. At this stage, pain and discomfort may be present. Further irritation causes inflammation. The inflammation, like swelling, causes the vital nutrients (oxygen and other key nutrients) to not get to the cells. This is where people will use pain killers or anti-inflammatory drugs to get relief BUT these drugs do nothing for the root of the problem. In fact, all drugs add additional toxicity to the body which can cause premature death according to research conducted by Carolyn Dean MD NA CN.
Beyond the inflammation stage, the body goes to ulceration where the tissues are destroyed providing an outlet for toxins. The pain intensifies. Usually more drugging and surgery are the outcome. The next stage is induration which means hardening or scarring of tissues. Atherosclerosis is a form of induration.
The finally stage comes with ongoing build-up of toxins, lack of nutrients and a problem with circulation. This stage is called fungation where the cells survive without oxygen, anaerobic process versus an aerobic process, thriving on oxygen. Many bacteria use the anaerobic process and as Cousens states in his book “this is when an oncologist will tell you that you have cancer.”
The only way to reach your health potential would be to eliminate the root causes.
The human body is the miracle. Once knowledge is attained and the cause is identified, your healthy birthright is only a decision and action away. You are in control your of life and your health. Make it a healthy day!
