I believe that disease takes hold of a system that has been sickened mostly from the inside, not the outside. A spiritually aligned, well-nourished, detoxified, un-vaccinated, alkaline body with a healthy colon is most resistant to disease of any kind. The popular belief amongst medical doctors and the medical system is that we are always vulnerable to attack by viruses and bacteria, and the drugs and vaccines are the best way to stay healthy. After years of witnessing conventional medicine’s failure, I reject this theory. Long-lasting cures often come slowly but never from suppressing illness with drugs. I have personally experienced and helped others to enjoy great health according to this holistic, non-allopathic philosophy.
“The Lost History Of Medicine” explains the issues very well.
Chronic degenerative diseases are viewed by the medical system as irreversible even though people are recovering partially or fully from arthritis, auto-immune, and atherosclerotic diseases every day with simple non-toxic methods. Pharmaceutical drugs, while in desperate cases may be necessary, never lead back to vitality, and add yet another toxin to the system to manage. I use my ever-growing knowledge to both prevent and remove the need for pharmaceutical drugs. The only time I will write a prescription for a pharmaceutical drug is in the process of tapering them or converting over to less toxic ones with the intention of discontinuing them all together when the body is able to function drug-free. Sometimes tapering drugs can be done immediately and sometimes it has to be done slowly with caution, attention, and communication with the doctors who originally prescribed the drugs.
Thus far, only the biochemistry has been discussed – but health is much more than biochemistry. Our attitudes and emotions have a huge role in health and can actually trump the biochemistry in either direction.
