Are you chronically ill?
There’s never a good time to be sick.
When “the” process stops working, when all “the” pills and doctors only make you feel worse, you are then diagnosed as “chronically ill.” If you are that sick patient, we can help.
Now more than ever, everyone seems super busy, (…please don’t be too busy to finish reading this blog — it may be what you’ve been looking for…) overwhelmed and looking for ways to get healthy. My guess is that you’ve probably heard and seen a lot of doctors, a lot of opinions, and tried many things to get well.
“Just because physicians are intelligent,
doesn’t necessarily mean they have a lot of common sense.” RH
Western medicine is seriously bipolar. On the one hand we have the best technology available anywhere. If you’re involved in an accident, and suffering from a severe, traumatic injury, our emergency rooms will save you if it’s at all possible. But on the other hand when it comes to treating chronic degenerative diseases such as diabetes, dementia, cancer, or high blood pressure, we are a complete failure.
What are the driving factors behind this tidal-wave of chronic illness? Acidity, toxicity, and deficiency in our industrial-food-supply; the pollutants in our water and air; the side-effects from the medications we take; the products we use each day to clean ourselves and our homes; they’re in our beauty products, furnishings, and building materials—like cockroaches, they are ubiquitous—everywhere.
According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), PREVENTABLE chronic diseases are now the world’s #1 killers. And the combination of eating acidic-nutrient-deficient foods and being over-exposed to toxins, is at the core of today’s health crisis.
The answer to this dilemma, by our traditional medical-standard-of-care, is to take even more medications and mask the ever increasing list of symptoms. But true healing only occurs when you remove toxins, clean up your system, and increase the nutrient density of alkalizing healthy foods.
It seems once physicians have formulated a concept and convinced themselves that it’s true they tend to become very resistant to change—no matter how compelling new information may be.
So, if you are at a “survival-kind-of-fight” place, and have been running from one health practitioner to the next, don’t despair. We have a solution—become the captain of your healing vessel. Yes, there is a learning curve in becoming your own health advocate–unlike tweets and texts–it will take some thought and time. Pay attention. Listen to your body. Be persistent. And trust your instincts. One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that you must be your own health advocate, question things, be suspicious, and seek second opinions.
And in the process of healing, you may learn the connection between the “state-of-your-health,” and the “state-of-our-disease-care” system.
You’ll start to wonder why last months trip to the emergency room for chest pain (it turned out to be indigestion), exceeded the cost of a semester of college for your daughter? And why the simple lab work cost more than a car? Or that the U.S. spends nearly $86 billion trying to treat back pain, which is as much as we spend on all of the country’s state, city, county, and town police forces combined. Yet you try to obey the unwritten law, and pretend that everything is okay.
Yes, maybe on the outside, most men and woman look OK—carefully groomed, perhaps unnecessarily and overly clean; while inside, he or she is more toxic and contaminated than at any time in human history. Even newborns start life with unprecedented toxicity. In a study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies born in August and September of 2004 in U.S. hospitals.
March, 2011, the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research approved a new drug called “Yervoy.” According to Life Extension Magazine, this drug adds “just four months of the least productive, lowest quality, and most expensive life.” It has horrible side effects AND costs $120,000 for four doses at $30,000 per dose! We have gotten so good at masking the pain and symptoms of our disease that we’ve been deluded into thinking that being chronically ill is normal. It may be normal to some, but it’s for sure not healthy
Money and politics has definitely entered into this picture. Washington and the FDA do not want to be exposed as enforcers for the drug companies, or be seen as clearly not acting in the public’s best interest. While these ideas are not new to many of us, it would be a shock and startling revelation if a large portion of the population began thinking this way. Washington would certainly like to avoid this ‘public relations’ embarrassment, while the FDA would deny it–even under oath.
Why We Get Sick
- Lifestyle choices,
- Magic bullet treatments,
- Emotional conflict,
- Environmental triggers,
- Wrong doctors,
- Wrong treatments,
- Financial obstacles to treatments,
- Father time and wearing out.
The number one reason people get sick is lifestyle. This is important, because patients are always looking for the magic bullet and cure. The magic and cure is in your knife and fork, and your sleeping patterns. Recognizing that you have to change your habits is critical in getting well.
Number #9 above, Father time and wearing out: no matter how hard you try, you can’t win the battle of eventually wearing out–sometimes it’s at 20; for others it’s 89. That’s where #4 comes in—genetics. And if it’s your time, we can make it easier for you to transition
“You are what you eat… and if you are what you eat,
are you fast, cheap, and easy?”
The next best thing…
There is no magic pill or surgery for ignoring your health for decades. Those with Godly influence in their life recognize that when you sin you go through the repentance process. The word repent comes from the Greek word root “to change,” in other words, stop what you are doing and get back on the straight and narrow. Just like spiritual repentance, we need physical repentance. When we abuse physical laws, and don’t sleep, or put junk into our system, we get symptoms–disease! If we want to get rid of those symptoms we have to repent, or change, from that lifestyle habit(s) that are causing the symptom(s). That’s why if you are able to change, amazing outcomes often happen. But there has to be the change within you.
The number one reason why people don’t get better is because they refuse to change their lifestyle.
Other barriers to healing:
- Lifestyle & environmental triggers
- Wrong health practitioner,
- Wrong treatments & treatment plan,
- Too much damage from the disease,
- Patient (unconsciously) may not want to get better, and
- Financial reasons.
The last barrier to healing, #6 Financial, is a fact of life. Unfortunately, if people cannot afford treatments, they will not get better. Many of the treatments necessary to “cure” a condition is not covered by insurance – lifestyle, exercise, supplements, nutritional therapy, mind/ body healing. If you cannot afford the treatments, you won’t get better, it’s a grim reality.

Whole food, vitamin, and mineral nutritional therapy. Your body needs building blocks and the best source. Give the body building blocks – whole food nutritional therapy is key. You must be able to ingest and absorb vitamins, minerals, fats and phytonutrients. While each patient is different, there are some common baseline nutrients everyone needs.
DNAA (Diet, Nutrition, Allergy-Addiction) therapy focuses on eliminating the body’s toxicity, acidity, and deficiency, and enhancing your immediate well-being. The trouble with most diets and supplements is that they don’t correct the underlying imbalances that result in poor digestion, which hinders the body’s ability to absorb and utilize nutrients–whether they come from food or pills. Shifting our focus to restoring the digestive process through the combined effort of enzymes & whole food supplements can have a monumental effect on your well being. “Life is a gift, health is not. What we do with our physical and Spiritual health is up to us.”
“In this age of tweets, texts, and abbreviated thinking,
People expect a “magic pill for their chronic illness,
So they go on pretending that all is well.” RH
If you follow our recommendations by taking accountability, educating yourself on your options and balancing your body’s biochemistry, hormones, energy, and emotions, then improved health is in your future. It’s also best not to focus on past treatment failures; instead concentrate your efforts on your health from here forward. With your health, you can accomplish your dreams. Again, there’s never a good time to be sick. Don’t delay. Let’s get started.
