Say “FAREWELL” To “Dis-Ease”
It’s time to say FAREWELL™ to “dis-ease” and chronic health problems! Did you know that the majority of our health problems are preventable and exist because of a few basic risk factors like stress, toxicity, poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle (i.e. little or no exercise)? According to a recent peer review done by C.M. Aldwin, Professor, Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, Oregon State University on the effects of stress on health and aging concluded that there is considerable support for a link between stress and certain illnesses such as depression, cardiovascular disease and the progression of AIDS. Clearly if we were not so “stressed out” we would be healthier.
There’s no hiding from the fact that our environment has become so toxic that we have had to create a government agency to regulate companies that dump toxic chemicals in our soil and ground water and release toxic gases into the atmosphere. There are new areas of medicine that deal specifically with illnesses caused by exposure to toxins.
Our food is probably the most illusive problem of all because we believe that since we have such a variety of food and seemingly over abundant supply that we must have the best food in the world. Even though industrialization allowed us to produce more food it unfortunately also allowed us to process the food for longer shelf life which has resulted in food-like “stuff”, that when analyzed gives new meaning to the term “junk food”. The problem is that most processed food is lacking in real “nutrition” which is what our bodies used to get from whole food grown on local farms up until the 1940’s. It’s hard to comprehend that in a few short decades we have gone from the best fed, healthiest people on the planet to the most fed un-healthiest people on the planet and that we are quickly taking the rest of the world’s populations down with us. Check the statistics, as cultures around the world adopt a US or “western” diet based on processed and fried food, meat, fat, salt, and lots of sugar that the rates of cancer skyrocket along with obesity and diabetes. It’s not a mystery any more and now there’s a whole medical industry in the form of pharmaceuticals and equipment manufacturers ready to profit from all this illness with new drugs and machines.
We would like to offer an alternative; as Albert Einstein once stated “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”. Its time for a new paradigm in health care what’s needed are the right tools and support so that you can prevent “dis-ease” and feel healthy.
We are in the midst of a global health crisis, including an epidemic of obesity. It is estimated that two-thirds of the American population is overweight and more than one-third of these individuals are obese. Along with this excess weight comes many other health concerns such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, fatty liver, heart disease, cancer, depression, and the list goes on. Many of our children are also obese and are developing the same health issues as overweight adults. Type 2 Diabetes, which was once called Adult Onset Diabetes, is now being seen in children as young as 9 and 10 years old. These same children have arteries filled with fatty plaque that look like arteries of a 40 or 50 year old, and many will need a liver transplant by the time they are young adults if they do not change their eating habits.
