The TRUTH about disease
Disease is “A definite pathological process having a characteristic set of signs and symptoms. It may affect the whole body or any of its parts, and its etiology, pathology, and prognosis may be known or unknown”(1). However, if we look at the etymology of the word disease, the explanation of what the word meant at its origin, we find the following: “Disease (n.) discomfort, inconvenience from Old French desaise”(2). The word disease is created from the syllables dis meaning “without” or “away” + ease “comfort” or “convenience” creating disease, which can literally be understood as a lack of comfort. This is important to understand as today we interpret the word disease to be an often lifelong debilitating condition that may even be life threatening, but the word disease does not make any reference to the intensity or seriousness of the discomfort. It is our perception of the word disease that is hurting us, as it represents the difference between paralysis and action.
We are so close to the origin of all disease when people speak of the gut and the microbiome and that food, movement and sleep are the solution. Yet the knowledge being practised today by most people is still not enough to cure diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s, as such many people believe they are doing what is right but are remaining sick, tired and aging ahead of their time. I discovered 6 missing links, unknown to the majority of the public that when combined allow us to eliminate even the worst diseases and this all comes down to two very neglected parts of our bodies; the kidneys and the lymphatic system with the origin of healing being controlled by copper, water and Mother Nature.
A Time For Change
The number of healthy and financially productive people worldwide today will soon not be able to financially sustain the costs of the population suffering from chronic diseases. The solutions we are currently being given just don’t work and for good reason: they go against the natural functioning of our body. You can’t cut, burn or poison the body back to health. Humanity is sicker than ever before and for the first time in history the first cause of private bankruptcy worldwide is medical bills. We no longer inherit earned wealth from our parents, we inherit debt, but it doesn’t have to be like this, we can turn all this around. National economies are collapsing due to the weight of healthcare and yet our tax dollars are not being spent preventing or curing chronic diseases or creating health and health education; this money is being spent on suppressing the symptoms of disease. Government healthcare isn’t aimed at restoring health, it is a disease management system. As a result, the trillions of dollars spent on healthcare each year have failed to reduce the incidence of any chronic disease.
Allopathic medicine has been the go-to medicine for chronic diseases for just over 100 years and as a result we have the worst health ever experienced in human history, where no chronic disease, including the common cold, has been cured, let alone understood. Consider the global revenue of the pharmaceutical market, which: “In 2001, was around 390.2 billion U.S. dollars. In 2014, global pharmaceutical revenues for the first time increased to over one trillion U.S. dollars.” (1) This massive spending on pharmaceuticals shows we have tried the allopathic medical model on a very large scale, but we have not seen widespread improvement in health. In fact, our health has deteriorated at a faster rate. We can therefore safely determine thanks to the largest field trial ever performed that symptom management with chemical pharmaceuticals does not cure disease or create health and productivity. Einstein once said: “The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. This is exactly what we are doing. Disease-symptom management doesn’t create health and never will. Let’s accept it, learn from it and move on.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against the symptom-based “magic-pill” treatment of the allopathic model. It is a phenomenal tool that can help a person who is suffering get enough temporary relief from their symptoms to then take on the underlying cause of their disease. It can be a great for short-term relief, but it should not become a long-term health solution. We need to understand why we get sick to avoid falling into the traps of confusion.
Your body is AMAZING!! It is a stunningly intricate holistic system of intelligent, self-regulating functions that communicate with each other to create and maintain life every second of every day, controlled by a feedback system called the neuroendocrine system. This system controls your self-regulating cellular functions which modify blood pressure, heart rhythm, energy production, core temperature, blood-sugar and cholesterol levels and your metabolism all day long. An example of this can be seen when you get hot: the pores in your skin dilate to increase perspiration in order to let out heat and re-establish your normal body temperature. These modifications to your physiology are normal and life supporting. Your body is not a machine that has the same function day-in, day-out. These adaptations to your bodily functions occur all throughout every day to help your body adjust to its environment. We have been led to believe that our cells can mutate, go haywire or attack healthy cells for no reason, that joints and organs wear out with age and that microbes are out to get us! Man-oh-man, how did we ever believe these doozies? Our neuroendocrine system is made up of nerve cells, like neurons, but which also produce hormones. This enables our cells and nervous system to pick up information from the environment and produce suitable hormones that alter the way our cells react to best adapt to our environment. Allopathic doctors are trained to believe that if our blood pressure or cholesterol levels don’t fall between the official pre-determined medical markers, which were determined by someone you have never met, who knows nothing about your lifestyle, diet, activity and emotional stress levels, then you are sick and you need medication to override your body’s protective feedback system… for life! Voltaire said it best “Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing.”
Signs and symptoms are simply alterations in the way our body functions due to changes in our environement (food, stress, toxins, emotions, exercise, temperature, etc.). We often think of symptoms as being negative but they can also be positive, for example everyone has noticed how good they feel and even look after a relaxing holiday or a good night sleep. Symptoms can be positive or negative. They are simply changes in our body as our body adapts to changes in our environment. Symptoms are not diseases, they are signs of ease or comfort of dis-ease and discomfort. Every moment of every day, we all move up or down the ladder of health. We move closer to health or closer to disease with each of our actions and beliefs. By eating foods containing toxic chemicals, being around negative or angry people, doing 4 hours of sport per day or staying up late at night you will move down the ladder towards disease. By eating fresh organic fruit and vegetables, being positive and constructive in your thoughts, emotions and actions and getting plenty of quality sleep you will move up the ladder towards health. The key is simple: each action counts and actions accumulate.
Health is simply the correct functioning of the body, meaning the body uses the energy it produces to ensure every aspect of our body works correctly, as opposed to struggling to deal with more than it can handle, pushing it into dis-ease. When the body is forced to use it's mineral intake to fight inflamation, elimate high levels of toxins or parasites... as opposed to producing energy the correct functioning of the body falters and health suffers as dis-ease is experienced. This process is reversible.
To restore health we must first clean out the toxins and acidic waste that our body has been storing over the years. These wastes have accumulated in our lymphatic system, which serves as our waste removal and immune system and from our fat cells. A healthy body can not be built on rotting foundations. It is precisely these stored acids that are causing pain, cellular and organ dysfunction and symptoms of disease. Once they are removed from the body and the body rehydrated you will feel strong and alive once more! How to do this is very simple, but one of the most important things that needs to occur in this process is that we need to understand WHY we got sick, so that we can avoid this happening again but also so that we are able to understand which treatements will work and which are simply financial ploys.
