Reasons for Poor Health


Reasons for Poor Health

When I read the statistic, I could hardly believe it. Only 4% of the people in the US are NOT on some kind of medication, are considered healthy. Why would that be? If you have followed the Biology of belief, you would have discovered that poor health is not related to your genes. It is not your age (there are those over 100 who are healthy) and it is not for unknown reasons. For every effect, there is a cause.

Sickness is considered normal in today’s world. Really? Since when? Let us not accept the main stream ideas. Let us find what is creating illness in our lives and find our true health. Finding that, we will also find our happiness.

Antibiotics: Eighty percent of all antibiotics are already in your food (CAFO grown meats), sprayed on your food as Round up (glyphosate). All destroy the microbiome which is 80% of your immune system. There are herbal and homeopathic alternatives which work when an antibiotic is needed.

Lack of probiotics: Eating fermented foods: yogurt, kimchee, sauerkraut, cheese, chocolate, kombucha, all assist the body and the microbiome to increase the strength of your immune system.

Lack of vitamins and minerals: Poor soil means foods are not loaded with the nutrients they once were. Even organic foods, which are 400 times more potent than commercial foods, are still far behind what they were 100 years ago. Our soils are depleted because we use artificial fertilizers instead of composting, or using natural minerals, such as can be purchased in the Farmington area from Morning Star Minerals.

Lack of enzymes: Many researchers now view the aging process and death as nothing more than depleted enzyme levels, which have reached the point where the body can no longer be repaired and maintained in its current environment. Enzymes, like the vitamins and minerals, come from whole, pure, and natural foods.

Malnourishment: Often those who are overweight are the same ones suffering from malnourishment. There is none of the above (probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes) in processed and packaged foods. Even if the ingredients list added vitamins, they are usually synthetic and unusable by the body.

Heavy metals: Consider the following: Mercury poisoning from vaccinations and dental amalgams; Arsenic contamination in conventionally raised chickens; Lead found in household paint in homes built prior to 1978; and in many rice products. Aluminum in cookware, and personal care products. Cadmium in smoke from cigarettes and factories, as well as many rice products. Various heavy metals in pesticides and herbicides, that end up in our air, food, and water. With heavy metals this prevalent in just these sources, it’s clear that nearly all of us are dealing with this heavy toxic burden.

Xenoestrogens: (man-made estrogen mimicking molecules) Xenoestrogens are most common in plastic containers, the lining of canned food, styrofoam cups and containers, cosmetics and toiletries, and agricultural chemicals. These chemicals cause imbalances in our hormones, which leads directly to several problems, including: poor sleep, raised stress and anxiety levels, poor energy, weight gain and weight loss, dry skin, hair, and nails, poor libido, poor concentration.

Toxic overload: Our food, water, and air have been assaulted through various chemicals and processes, and as a result, we have been inundated at every level with a toxic burden to bear. Personal care products and medical procedures and products (x-rays, dental amalgams, prescriptions) have added to this burden. Our liver should be able to handle the toxins we take in and properly dispatch them so they do not bio-accumulate in the body. However, our liver has been inundated and rendered inefficient, and as a result it can’t execute that task with any efficiency.

There is no shortage of reasons your health is deteriorating, but if you focus on improving these areas, your health will improve.
