Are We Celebrating Freedom in Bondage?
– Millions of Americans will celebrate their freedom this 4th of July in bondage to a medical system that can’t deliver healthcare –
1. The doctor can’t eat for you or quit smoking for you. What we put into our mouths takes us from 6 or 8 pounds at birth when we were healthy to 150 or 250 pounds in 40 or 50 years. If we have a problem, we did it to ourselves. We can reverse the process, but it takes time and we are impatient. Thankfully, our bodies are designed for self-healing. Heart disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes are reversible if we know how to cooperate with the body’s healing mechanism.
2. Unless we want surgery, medical care uses drugs. The science of drugs is pharmacology, formerly called toxicology when they determined how much of a chemical would kill 50% of the rats. The rules have changed, but the game is similar. People should ask their pharmacist for a list of adverse effects of their prescription. Otherwise when they become toxic to the chemical and get “headache, diarrhea or abdominal pain” [purple pill], they think they need a second prescription when they really need to get rid of the first one. Taking a prescription to cover up the toxicity of another drug puts them in a dangerous position. The list of drug effects is usually long, hard to understand, and more severe than people expect. It’s safer as Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine.”
Supporting the idea of reversing disease with diet is Salvatore Frascinella, a 65-year old executive. He had three cardiologists who felt he was too risky for bypass surgery, so they had him taking 12 pills/day and he was getting worse. He couldn’t walk two blocks without severe chest pain. Desperate, he attended a seminar and in eight weeks was off all of his drugs. That was 26 years ago. He’s alive and well with no drugs, now at 91, he says, “You saved my life!”
Nathan Pritikin reversed heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes in 85% of hundreds of patients so they could stop their prescriptions but greed prevented medical acceptance.
