Did you know that you have the power to control 70-90% of your health? Think about this: would you ever wait for your car’s gas tank to be completely empty, leaving you stranded on the side of the road? Are you stranded?
Traditional Medical Care
Well, this is the way your traditional doctor sees your body. Medical doctors in America are trained to find a disease so they can come in and “save” you with a pill or surgery. Admittedly, sometimes it's necessary to be rescued. If you have acute mental illness, heart attack, injury, stroke, acute issues. However, most of the what ails you, as an American, are NOT acute issues.
Most likely, you are suffering from some chronic disease. Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death, accounting for 75% of the worlds deaths. One hundred years ago, you were most likely to die from an infection. Now, you have issues like fatigue, irritable bowel, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, heart disease and obesity as your health challenges.
Why So Much Chronic Disease?
Over the last 70 years Americans have subjected their body’s to more stress than in all of the millennia before now. For the majority of you, mental and emotional stress, pollutants, nutrient poor, processed “food” choices, pathetic exercise habits and lack of sleep are the primary causes of this stress. These stressors ultimately break down our intestinal lining and the 60-80% of our immune system that wraps itself around out gut.
How to Heal
When you use a prescription it’s like getting a tow from a tow truck or pushing your car from behind. Your car is moving, but the actual problem hasn’t been solved.
God has given you an incredible body, designed to heal itself. Your immune system is responsible for not only defending you from viruses, bacteria and funguses. It's also responsible for healing your body from the inside-out. In addition, your immune system acts like a UPS truck carrying around messenger molecules like hormones and brain molecules.
Just like you need to put the proper kind of gas and oil in your car. You will need to remove the stressors, like removing the gas cap to put the gas in your car. Then, you’ll need to get the proper ingredients into your body to heal. Knowing what to do next is the confusing part.
