Why some of the best health strategies of all are never advertised or promoted

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Many of the most effective healing strategies that work wonders for human health are available at no charge. Exposure to natural sunlight is one of them: its healing rays prevent depression, osteoporosis, breast cancer, prostate cancer and many other diseases and disorders. But if this is such a good healing therapy, why isn't it more widely promoted?

People wonder, 'if these are good for people and if these create health benefits, then why aren't we hearing about them?' And the answer is, of course, because they are free... because promotion of a product requires that there be an economic incentive from the manufacturer or reseller's point of view.

No one is going to go out and sell, for instance, sunshine. Why not? Because you can get it for free. So who's going to run an ad touting the benefits of sunshine? No one, of course. You can't bottle it up, you can't put it in a capsule, and you certainly cannot apply for a patent on sunlight. It's freely available to everyone, so you will never hear it heavily promoted.

That also means you're unlikely to hear about its benefits in the press. In fact, you're more likely than ever to hear that sunlight is bad for you, because there is an economic incentive in that message going back to the profits of sunscreen manufacturers, who largely sponsor dermatology schools and dermatology publications. Therein you see the economic incentive to actually keep people ignorant of these healing strategies.

This information reduces the profits of popular product manufacturers
Water, for another example, takes away profits from soft drink manufacturers. This is why, in years past, Coca-Cola actually ran a campaign in restaurants called "Just say no to H20." This campaign was designed to dissuade people from drinking water and, instead, convince them to consume highly profitable carbonated beverages like Coca-Cola or Diet Coke.

So there hasn't been a lot of economic incentive for people to promote the healing benefits of water. Now, today, you do have more companies selling water faucet filters -- one company is called Pur, another is Brita - and so you do see some promotions for these filters. But again, that's not because water is such a healing element; they're promoting their products because they want you to buy their filters. So even when you do hear positive messages about these five habits, it's only because one of them coincides with an economic incentive for some product manufacturer.

How to be immune to product hype
But the good news to you is that once you have the information in this book, you can make decisions and change the patterns in your life, regardless of what promotional hype is out there in the market. This is because, once you have the information here, you will understand the true healing benefits of these five habits; and since you don't have to pay for them, you will find it very easy to integrate them into your life. As you do so, you will start to see phenomenal results.

Some of these strategies can help reverse asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, schizophrenia, mental depression, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, immune system dysfunction, chronic pain, arthritis, allergies, Alzheimer's disease, and many other disorders. That's how powerful these five habits truly are. If you integrate all five into your lifestyle and do so faithfully, you will, in a very short period of time, be one of the healthiest individuals around. Your inner health will transform at a speed that you may never have believed possible.

This article is a content segment from the book, the Five Habits of Health Transformation by Mike Adams. The book covers the five most effective, yet effortless strategies for enhancing health. Written for busy people, it explains how to get the greatest health results possible with the least investment in time, money or effort.
