Nutrition and HealthNutrition is the key to health and all disease. This comes straight from the father of medicine, Hippocrates who said, 'Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food'.
You only have to look at hospital food to see that modern medicine did not listen to him. Nevertheless, his statement is so true and it was proven to me when I beat my cancer (see my biography) and I want to prove it to you. If you can grasp what Hippocrates said you will be free from all fear of any disease from cancer, viruses, germs, and autoimmune diseases you will lose all fear of disease like I have.
We become sick due to a genetic weakness or a weakened immune system.
Why would a genetic weakness such as mine (the prostate) become a disease? A genetic weakness is like a weak link in a chain. If you pull on the chain hard enough the weak link will break and your chain is no longer any good. I found my weak link by eating like any other American. Eventually my body could take no more and I got prostate cancer.
OK, I broke the link, now what? I reversed what I had done. I stopped eating that way and I cleansed and detoxed my body to get rid of the toxic sludge that had built-up over those years. My prostate cancer was cut off from its source of health and nutrition (acid environment, toxicity, low oxygen, low blood flow). The prostate cancer left and I was healthier than I had been in years.
What does a weak immune system have to do with the way you eat?
The easiest way to explain this is to give you my own experience. As I said in my biography, 'years before I got cancer I was experiencing a lot of minor health difficulties'. I was gaining weight; I had frequent indigestion and felt bloated and experienced belching and flatulence. I was experiencing a loss of appetite. I caught colds and the flu every year that went into my lungs, which caused a lingering cough. I had many low back problems and a loss of energy that was pervasive. I had some precancerous lesions on my forehead, cheeks, and temples (see skin cancer). To top all of this off; as I look back now, I also suffered from depression.
I thought that all of these minor health problems were just part of the aging process. If I had seen a doctor on a regular basis, I would have been prescribed a number of medications for at least a few of those symptoms. Fortunately for me, I distrusted doctors and did not have a personal physician. If I had followed the advice of a doctor, I would probably be dead or very close to it by now.
All the above symptoms are the signs of a weak immune system. At the time that this was happening, few people spoke of the immune system in relation to everyday health. In those days, the immune system was white blood cells that helped kill germs and fight infection.
Now we know that the immune system can have an effect on many aspects of health. The last I herd there are at least sixty different autoimmune diseases (see autoimmune diseases) and science suspects that there may be many more.
Sounds like a good reason to take care of your immune system. Well, at the time I was using natural healing methods to fight my cancer I had no idea that the other problems I had would disappear at the same time as the cancer.
Well that is exactly what happened. As the cancer symptoms disappeared so did all of the above symptoms. I still get some precancerous lesions on my face but they are nothing like they were. I did get full blown cancer on my right temple three years ago (and I beat that like I did the prostate cancer (see skin cancer). But I have not drawn a sick breath in eighteen years, no colds, no flu, no lung problems or cough, nothing.
So what am I saying, I am saying that you can use the same techniques that I did and get the same results.
But let's start with nutrition. As I stated above, what you eat is the key to your health. Furthermore I discovered for myself that this key worked beyond my greatest expectations. Once I recovered and my feet were on the ground my curiosity got the best of me. Than I had to discover what made this system of healing work. Since that time I have spent years studying Naturopathic Medicine from every angle. Consequently if you are also curious and want to know the nuts and bolts of why it works, read-on.
