The American Health Care System spends over 3 trillion dollars annually yet we have the same life expectancy of Cuba which spends absolutely zero dollars on the health of its citizens. Heart Disease kills an alarming 700,000 people ever single year with Cancer, Diabetes and Stroke rounding out some of America’s “Heavy Hitting” killers. What you may find alarming about these statistics is that MOST DISEASES and CAUSES OF DEATH can largely be prevented! Now I know what your thinking, I can already see the skepticism as you sit in front of your computer screen to read this but try to keep an open mind about it. For the record, 4 of the top 10 causes of death in the United States (Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke and Diabetes) are largely preventable through diet and lifestyle changes.
Seems a bit shocking doesn’t it! That a 3 trillion-dollar healthcare system is failing miserably and that each year more and more people die from unnatural and more often than not 100 % preventable deaths. What makes our healthcare system fail so miserably is not it’s well-trained medical doctors, high-tech medical machines, screenings or testings OR its state of the art facilities. Truth be told, rates of life and death have absolutely nothing to do with what our healthcare system is doing right. In fact, it is just the opposite. It is what our healthcare system is NOT doing at all.
You sit in the doctor’s office for about 20 minutes waiting for the doctor. A nurse comes out and brings you into yet another room where you proceed to wait for an additional 20 minutes for the doctor. Finally, when the doctor enters the room, he speaks with you for about 4 minutes, hands a little “magic pill” over to you and rushes out of the room to see his or her next patient. Now, I am not knocking conventional medicine in any way here. In most cases, medical doctors are good people trying to make a difference in the world. They work hard and want to help large numbers of people. It is a respectable profession. The underlying problem with our healthcare system and the doctor’s that work in this system is that they are trained to do one thing and one thing ONLY- that is to treat health problems. Notice very carefully here that I said TREAT.
If most doctor’s go into their profession thinking they are going to treat various illnesses, this is just setting us all up for failure. The problem with the “treatment” attitude is that most of the time it is too late. For instance, take someone who has had a massive heart attack. The treatment of a serious myocardial infarction (heart attack) is going to include some type of blood thinner, a statin drug, and some form of surgery to open up the flood vessels and regain circulation of blood to the heart. Most of the time it is never mentioned that how you eat, how you live, how you deal with stress and emotions, etc. all lead to heart attacks. Just for the record, heart attacks are NOT normal. It is a blockage in the arteries that takes many, many years to develop. It is for this reason why you don’t see many children having heart attacks (although this is sadly changing and 10 year olds are now dying from it). In almost all cases heart attacks don’t just fall out of the sky and hit you over the head like a bag of sand. It takes many years to develop atherosclerotic plaque buildup due to poor lifestyle choices.
A perfect example of this “treatment” philosophy lies in the war on Cancer. Just the other day I was buying a few groceries and was asked by the lovely cashier if I wanted to “Round Up” my bill to the nearest dollar (in this case it would have been 58 cents) to help find a cure for Cancer. At that exact moment, I realized that many women employees of the grocery store were wearing pink shirts for breast cancer and that there were gigantic banners strung all over the ceiling stating “Help Find a Cure”. Once again this goes back to our problem not just in our medical profession but as a society!
Imagine if instead of America raising millions and millions of dollars each year to “Find a Cure”, imagine if we took that money and spent it on “Finding a Cause”. In fact, it wouldn’t take much money to find out what causes cancer, in most cases we already know what causes it. Do I have you confused yet? Let me break it down into simple terms. Sodium Nitrates found in ALL lunch meats, bacon and processed meats is a known carcinogen (meaning it causes cancer) yet the FDA still allows it. Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone(rBGH) is a known carcinogen, yet 35 million pounds of this steroid is pumped into the beef that ends up on our dinner plates. Plastic bottles contain Bisphenol which is a known carcinogen, yet it is still used in many bottled waters and drinks throughout the United States. Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate are known carcinogens, yet can be found in over 90% of shampoos, soaps and lotions.
You can see exactly where I am going with this. Your probably wondering how in the world you are going to avoid all of these cancer producing ingredients found in virtually every food product and cleaning product in your entire house. The answer to both this and the title of this article, “The Easiest Way To Cure ANY Disease” lies in prevention. This is where it gets really exciting. If you have the power to reduce your exposure(which you easily can do each and every day of your life), then you can literally use this power to prevent most diseases in the first place.
Confused yet? It’s really not all that difficult. You can do this in two simple steps.
Step #1– Switch from a treatment state of mind to a preventative state of mind. Afterall, if you prevent diseases from occurring in your body there will be no disease to treat!
Step #2– Make smart/healthy conscious choices as many times as you can in a single day. For instance, when you’re at the gas station filling up your car’s tank, choose a bottle of water over a bottle of sugar (I.E.- Snapple, Red Bull, VitaminWater, etc.). When you are at your house and hungry for a snack, opt for an apple and almond butter rather than eating some cookies or a bag of chips. Next time you’re at the grocery store, opt for nitrate free bacon instead of regular bacon. Next time you get home from work and are super stressed out from a long and hard day, choose to do some yoga instead of watching television. As you can see here, there are a million things you can do each and every day of your life to minimize your chances of ever getting a disease.
So back to the title of this article and the question, “What is the easiest way to cure ANY disease?”
The answer unfortunately is something a conventional medical doctor will never tell you!
To cure ANY Disease, all you need to do is think about how to prevent it from ever happening in the first place!
