How can I make such an ARROGANT statement when the scientific community with significantly more experience and knowledge has claimed to have already eradicated disease (ex. Small Pox?) What scientific facts do I base my “assumptions” on?
I base my assumptions on:
THE LAWS OF EXISTENCE
THE REALITY OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR
THE LAWS OF EXISTENCE:
We have all heard the phrase “the strong will survive.” Viruses, bacteria and other pathogen’s (“germs”) survival is based on this same fundamental TRUTH. These organisms have survival capabilities that far exceed our science and understanding. As we develop new medical technologies for combating these “germs,” they mutate in various ways to survive. Three such examples include:
disguising themselves by altering their genetic makeup.
altering the design of their protective membrane (the coat that surrounds the “germ) interfering with our immune system’s ability to “recognize” and “attack” them.
becoming “invisible” by hiding within a “normal” healthy cell and remaining dormant (“sleeping”) until the immune response “retreats” assuming the battle has been won.
According to an article published by the National Institute of Health entitled, Human viruses: discovery and emergence the following point was stated:
“It seems almost inevitable that new human viruses will continue to emerge.”
Focusing so much attention on “chasing” these newly discovered viruses in an effort to “protect” human health has proven costly and inefficient. It continues to reinforce the DISEASE MODEL of “health care” based on the belief that “killing germs” creates GOOD HEALTH. With an infinite number of variations and mutations, this approach will never be able to ERADICATE these pathogens.
THE REALITY OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR:
Human behavior has negatively impacted our ability to combat “germs” NATURALLY. Human behavior (to a large extent) has focused so much on INSTANT PLEASURE that GRATIFICATION has overtaken our cognitive rational thinking at a cost of personal health. These behaviors (ex. poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, poor sleep, emotional distress, etc…) are NOT EQUATED with disease. Based on this truthful observation (over my years in clinical practice,) the average individual has become the PRIMARY CAUSE of his or her own body’s gradual destruction and inability to combat pathogens (“germs.”) We have CHOSEN to believe our damaging lifestyles can be CONTROLLED through medical intervention replacing the need for personal responsibility for our own behaviors.
THIS, IN REALITY, IS SELF DECEPTION!
A BETTER APPROACH:
Based on the LAWS OF EXISTENCE, our time and energy would be better spent focusing on LIFESTYLE ESSENTIALS that support GOOD HEALTH than the world of pathogens that ONLY BECOME HARMFUL GERMS when an opportunity arises for them. Germs seek opportunity. When one is “unavailable” they do NOT CAUSE HARM!
GERMS (IN AND OF THEMSELVES) DO NOT CAUSE DISEASE.
Compromised people (as a result of compromised lifestyles)
create an environment that SUPPORT GERMS and ULTIMATELY THE DISEASES THEY’RE ASSOCIATED WITH.
Since “germs” are capable of undergoing structural and genetic alterations to maintain their survival, it becomes futile to develop stronger and more lethal drugs that destroy the quality of human life while creating more virulent pathogens (SUPER BUGS) in the process. A better answer is found in:
creating a healthy internal environment through healthy lifestyle BEHAVIORS that PREVENT these “GERMS from overwhelming our immune defenses.
This approach will:
reduce health care expenses
improve function and quality of life
result in fewer illnesses with shorter durations and reduced severities
help the consumer regain CONTROL of their lives
It’s time to recognize this germaphobic attitude has increased our susceptibility to “germ invasion” while creating more virulent strains (SUPER BUGS) resistant to medical interventions. Maybe it’s time to consider strengthening your own body’s defenses by giving it the tools (lifestyle) necessary to RESTORE and MAINTAIN OPTIMAL HEALTH.
SINCE ALL DOCTORS UNANIMOUSLY AGREE A HEALTHY BODY SUPPORTED BY A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM IS THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST UNWANTED “GERMS”, WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO CONTINUE TO LIVE A LIFESTYLE THAT CAUSES SELF HARM?
