(NaturalNews) It also seems too simple: In order to achieve lasting health, simply stop making disease
. But the concept is foreign to most people: Making disease? Why would I be making disease?
Mainstream consumers, you see, have been trained by the medical industry to believe that disease strikes spontaneously, without any real cause. One day you have nothing wrong with you, and then suddenly the next day you're diagnosed with a breast cancer tumor. Shazam! It happens just like being struck by lightning... (and it's not your fault, you're told -- there's nothing you could have done about it...)
That's what they want you to believe, anyway. But the truth is very different: All the most common degenerative diseases -- cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, etc. -- take many years to grow and expand
. A cancer tumor can take 10 years (or even more) before it grows to the size that will show up on a mammogram. That means the tumor has been "under construction" for a decade!
During that time, the patient has been "making cancer" on a daily basis.
By the way, I've borrowed this concept from Dr. Thomas Lodi, a brilliant cancer doctor who has a presentation called "Stop Making Cancer." You can check out his clinic in Arizona at http://www.anoasisofhealing.com
or watch his speech for yourself on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKH_bCa_hok
Dr. Lodi's concept of "stop making cancer" is so powerful and simple that I borrowed it for this article (with credit, of course) and expanded it to all degenerative diseases. If you want to be healthy, stop making disease!
How disease is manufactured
In reading this, the first question you might ask is, "How do I stop making disease?"
To answer that question, though, you need to understand how disease
is created in the first place. All disease begins with an imbalance
in the mind or the body (it can originate in either place and then spread to the other).
Disease can be set off by a nutritional deficiency
(not enough vitamin D, for example), or a dietary excess
(too much homogenized milk). It can be caused by an emotional state such as anger or stress that then spreads to the tissues and begins to create dis-ease in the physical body.
Most disease that's being "manufactured" in the bodies of people today is created through controllable factors: What people eat, what chemicals they expose themselves too, how much exercise they get (or not), their state of mind, what supplements they take (or don't) and so on.
There's a recipe
for creating each disease. If you want to manufacture type-2 diabetes, for example, the recipe is very simple:How to manufacture diabetes:
• Drink lots of liquid sugars and high-fructose corn syrup.
• Consume a huge number of empty calories (junk food).
• Avoid all exercise. Live a sedentary lifestyle.
• Live indoors. Avoid sunshine and the natural world.
• Maintain nutritional deficiencies in vitamin D, selenium, zinc and plant-based nutrients.
If you do this for long enough, you will begin manufacturing diabetes
. And before long, you'll be officially diagnosed with it by a doctor who will say something like, "You're diabetic." (Which isn't really true. You are not defined by a disease. You're just expressing a certain physiology that's been named a disease.)
If you want to make cancer, there's a different recipe:How to make cancer:
• Expose yourself to radiation (mammograms, CT scans, X-rays, etc.).
• Eat cancer-causing foods like bacon, processed meats and foods with chemical preservatives.
• Avoid all anti-cancer nutrients like superfoods, medicinal mushrooms, spirulina
• Avoid sunlight. Remains deficient in vitamin D.
• Use lots of toxic personal care products made with cancer-causing chemicals.
• Live a high-stress lifestyle.
Do these things for long enough and you'll get cancer.
Similarly, there's a recipe for every major degenerative disease, including kidney stones (drink lots of soda), brain cancer (drink diet soda), obesity (eat more MSG), liver disease (take more pharmaceuticals) and so on.
So if you want to make disease, it's a very simple matter to do so. Shockingly, most people are following these disease-making recipes right now!
They're living the "Make More Disease" lifestyle! Every time they wolf down some bacon, or eat processed junk foods, or use conventional personal care products, they are creating disease in their bodies!
Disease doesn't appear immediately, of course. It takes many years for the daily poisoning of the body to be diagnosed as disease. But make no mistake about the origins of that disease: The body manufactured
the disease over many years!
So when doctors tell patients "There's nothing you could have done to prevent this" they are actually lying to their patients. Of course there's something you can do! You can stop making disease before it gets out of control.
Conventional doctors usually don't like to acknowledge this because it would give patients the idea that they have control over their own health
. Most conventional doctors would rather believe the Big Lie that says doctors
control your health, or that disease strikes randomly, without cause. And therefore you have no control over your own health and are dependent on western medicine to take responsibility for your health.
It's a belief system specifically designed to entrap you in a system of medical dependency (enslavement). Fortunately, you can free yourself from medical enslavement
How to stop making disease
Each day, depending on what you eat, drink, do or put on your body, you are either moving towards
disease or away from
disease. The way to stop making disease, then, is to halt any actions that move you toward disease and, instead, pursue actions they move you away from disease (and toward improved health).
Once you fill your body with living, healing juices, sunlight and regular exercise, you will shut off all kinds of chemical "disease-making" processes in your physiology. And you'll activate healing processes
that move you towards lifelong health. This is how you start making health
instead of disease.
The longer you pursue a healthful lifestyle based on superfoods, nutritional supplements, healthy eating and the avoidance of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, mainstream personal care products and other poisons, the faster your healing will accelerate! Beyond the mere halting of manufacturing disease, once your body achieves a certain level of vitality, it will begin to automatically reverse disease
. Cancer tumors in your body, in other words, will literally vanish over time. Heart disease can be cured. Diabetes may disappear. Cognitive function will be restored. These are just a few of the many benefits you may experience when self-healing is in full swing.
Which recipe will you choose?
You see, there is a recipe for disease, but there's also a recipe for outstanding health. Which recipe will you choose?
Most people inadvertently choose a recipe for disease (it's the recipe everyone else is pursuing, so it's easy to go along with). And because they follow that recipe, they get the results of that recipe. That's why disease should not be surprising
to anyone who knows these recipes. If you follow the recipe, you will get the results (good or bad).
So it's up to you to decide which recipe you wish to follow
. You can choose from all the various recipes for disease -- which include enormous quantities of junk foods, pharmaceuticals, personal care products and a barrage of vaccines -- or you can choose to pursue the recipe for good health. That recipe is based on sound nutrition, fresh fruits and vegetables, time spent outdoors in nature, real sunlight on your skin, targeted nutritional supplements, regular exercise and the elimination of synthetic chemicals from your body. It's a simple, commonsense recipe that anyone can choose to follow at any time.
The minute you start pursuing the recipe for health
, you will begin to see results. And the longer you pursue this recipe, the more your positive results will accelerate.
Ask your doctor
Remember this the next time your doctor or some other health professional gives you advice. After receiving their advice, ask yourself, "Is this a recipe for HEALTH, or for DISEASE?"
If the advice includes a lot of radiation, chemotherapy, pharmaceuticals, surgery or injections of some kind, it's probably not describing a recipe for health. Be wary of any advice that does not resonate with the simple principles of commonsense health... as in, don't irradiate yourself. Don't poison yourself (chemo). Don't cut your body (surgery). Don't use chemicals to control your physiology (pharmaceuticals). Use these only as a last resort when all other options have been exhausted.
Certainly, if you suffer some sort of accident like a broken leg, then it's perfectly okay to submit to the necessary surgery, anesthesia or other elements of acute medical care. I'm not against western medicine's usefulness in emergency care situations. But when it comes to long term habits of health, be aware that pharmaceuticals, mammograms, chemotherapy, vaccines and most surgeries are really just components of the recipe for disease
. So if you choose to follow that route, don't be surprised at the outcome.
By the way, following the recipe for health may take more self discipline and maturity than following the recipe for disease, but it's far more rewarding
. For one thing, you get to live longer. Better yet, you get to live happier and healthier
during all those years. And isn't that essentially why we're all interested in the health in the first place?There is a recipe for perfect health
. It's a recipe that's available to you right now, and it's the same recipe that will stop your body from manufacturing disease. Follow that recipe for good health and you will experience far more enjoyment in your life, no matter how long you live.
