I am not saying we blame everyone and the system, for our compromised health.
In fact we should not, even with the given, that bad information, bad food, and a misdirected plan of the pharmaceutical industry could have severely corroded an otherwise healthy being. Indeed as an uncomfortable truth, the beast here could be you.
I survived prostate cancer in spite of the above conditions of which I was found gullible and wanting, and could have paid the ultimate price of death. Due to no lack of proactivity though, I lived to tell the tales. Details of my journey are captured in a no holds barred and graphic blow by blow descriptions in Prostate Cancer And Me Or You, The Two Stages (Man To Man).
Because of my survival, I have to take the stance that the beast of ill-health is yourself. Today everybody knows what bad food is and how bad food is devastating to your health, from obesity to cancers. To ignore this is at your own peril. Oh! by the way, if you did not know what bad food is, it is typically those foods you have to line up for, drive up to collect, and those foods found on the lower part of budgets and hence on the bottom part of supermarket shelves.
It could therefore be all foods grown and produced en masse for fast consumption and usually tainted with steroids, antibiotics, growth enhancers, and stored in cans and preservatives. They typically have a prevailing and supposedly good taste that hooks you, and makes you want more and more. The longer the shelf life of those things called food, is the shorter your life will be if you happen to an indulger. So who say you have to have a bag of chip with your sandwich and sugar juice instead of water?
I am glad I lived to point this out and if you read on, you may come to appreciate this and probably save your life, or even somebody's.
Not Have To Be Sick
I am a firm belief in the notion that we do not have to have heart attacks, strokes, cancers if we live and eat right. Suffice it to say too that if you live and eat right and have a healthy life, you wouldn’t have to wither away in convalescence homes and hospitals before you die. Yes indeed! You do not have to be sick! I have spelt out a lot of that already in a two part series THE REAL REASONS WE DIE, which can be found in a previous blog.
These thoughts of mine as a lay person is being reinforced by doctors and experts in the field of “better medicine”. You probably would be surprised that such better medicine is actually the food we eat and more appropriately what we do not eat.
Joel Fuhrman, MD
One of those reinforcing session was a program on KPBS that I recently watched. Joel Fuhrman, MD, and the host made a bold and agreeable statement, a statement I believe to be so true and all encompassing where health is concerned, a statement that should be on all PA systems and all news media. The statement: DISEASE IS REVERSIBLE NUTRITIONALLY.
Drugs are not the answer this enlightened man said. He went on to admonished the audience that they should choose foods that arm the body’s defense against cancer, and that eating properly lowers cholesterol much better than medication, among other things.
Nutritional excellence he says imparts super immunity to most of what ails us. This excellence he attested to, is based off the acronym G.O.M.B.S which is greens, onions, mushroom, beans, and seeds. 10 grams of mushroom daily is purported to fight breast cancer and daily intake of onions will reduce prostate cancer.
Dr. Joel Fuhrman believes that if we train our taste buds, we can begin to enjoy these foods just like the junk they trained us to want. Another important point I want to bring out is when he made the observation that 40% of those who have heart attack have no symptoms, and those usually die.
(At this point I have to back up and take a moment).
Recently a dear cousin of mine died suddenly at her home and the silent killer by the name of blood pressure was the culprit according to the autopsy report. Maybe because this hit home so resoundingly I have do write this piece in hoping that an individual who reads this might not have to die like my cousin.
“The advance of nutritional science is here!” So concluded The doctor. He has in fact claims to fame of reversing terminally ill people sent home to die over 18 years ago, and who are still enjoying life. I have included the link to Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s website for your benefit, and maybe for the benefit of those who you love and who love you and want to have more of you around.
Please do not let the beast of bad health kill you.
I have two little boys who are always blaming the other for the wrongs they both commit. A man who does not acknowledge what he does and the consequences of his actions, may very well be like a boy then, who does not take responsibility for his actions. Let us step up to the plate therefore, and be a man or a woman for that matter, and command better health for ourselves.
Regrettably the beast of Ill-health could be nobody, but YOU.
