We Are BEHIND: Start Early, Don’t Wait For Symptoms
With all of the technological advancements and scientific discoveries over the years, one would think our medical community would be farther along at preventing chronic diseases. Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and others, are all chronic diseases that take years to develop within our bodies, but our healthcare system is more like a “sick-care” system, reacting to sick people instead of investing in wellness and prevention. If we have years to take a fighting chance, why do we wait until we are already bleeding on the battlefield, facing an army that has had time to grow stronger and stronger over the years? People are starting the treatment process with “their foot already on the banana peel” – what if we could address the issue before ever reaching the banana. Could there be more tests that could be done to catch the disease earlier, before it becomes a problem?
Time For Change: Rising Statistics Reflect Deadly Future
Cancer cases continue to rise, with 1,658,370 new cases and 589,430 cancer deaths in the US this year, according to projections by the American Cancer Society.
Many scientists are devoted to cancer research every year and the efforts to truly improve cancer treatment and prevention are certainly respected. On the other side, if millions of dollars are being invested in research, why don’t we see more funds devoted to preventing chronic diseases?
Some believe the cancer industry is “in bed” with the medical world, therefore, they lobby in their favor to control the industry and make millions each year off reacting to chronic disease symptoms. Most of these diseases stem from our Western food diet and the toxic environment we have created as a society, which is also mainly controlled by corporations.
It has been said that the key to success in the health business is to pull off the trick of making people patients for life.
Dr. Glenn Warner, who passed in 2000, was one of the most highly qualified cancer specialists in the United States. He used alternative treatments on his cancer patients with great success. When asked what he thought on the treatment of cancer, he said:
Kill The CAUSE: Dr. Charles Majors
Expressing his views on cancer, Dr. Charles Majors, author of The Cancer Killers, posted on Facebook this morning regarding this reactive mindset promoted by our medical industry. He stresses the problem of how “cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. are all symptoms, not the cause of why you’re sick…the only CURE is getting to the CAUSE(s).”
As we know, the cause of chronic diseases is on a cellular level, gradually developing into a disease over time. Viruses, bacteria, and cancer cannot live in a healthy body with a fully functioning immune system. Therefore providing the body with nutrients that help the immune system fight back, may be a better way to address diseases.
Dr. Major’s explains it like this:
“You’re not walking around the street one day and get cancer, then get sick, right. You’ve been sick for years…then you get cancer. So by just getting rid of your cancer, then what are you still? You’re still sick, and cancer comes back in the majority of the cases.”
“It’s Just In My Genes”
Dr. Charles Majors further discussed the relationship of our genes and his belief on how genetics is not to blame. We all have bad genes, it’s simply whether or not the environment and what we put in our bodies turns on those bad genes.
Dr. Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles, studies epigenetics and says:
“Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life.”
If our genes parallel our environment, can we positively influence our genes through food? Research has shown that certain nutrients in our foods can express genes that antagonize cancer development, and inhibiting the bad gene linked to the cancer process.
