It is the most important asset that you have. Many people spend hundreds of dollars a month on life insurance that they will never see. These same people are reluctant to spend any money on their present-day-health. When, in actual fact, the best life insurance you can get is a healthy body. Thousands and thousands of dollars are spent on recreation, TVs, entertainment, junk food, cigarettes, liquor, and recreational drugs, but people are hesitant to spend money on preventative health care.
The health that you have today was determined by the choices that you made 20 or 30 years ago. In order to insure you’re going to be healthy in your 60’s and 70’s the choices you make today (assuming you’re 30 or 40) determine how healthy you will be when you get that old.
The idea that I’ll quit smoking later, or I’ll start exercising soon, or maybe I should lose some weight in the new year don’t quite fit with the philosophy that what you do today affects your health 20 years from now.
If you have FM/CFS then you’re at the bottom of the himm and in order to be concerned about prevention, first you need to get to the top of the hill. It’s hard work to get up the hill, but if you start to coast, it’s not long before you slide back down the hill again.
It is easy to be healthy. Just take it one step at a time. With each piece of the puzzle corrected comes more energy to accomplish the next step. Next thing you know you are feeling much better and doing things you were not able to do for years. Stuck to it you will be very pleased with the results.
Occasionally, a patient asks me, “How come I am not better, I have been doing these cleansings for a month now and I don’t feel that much better yet”? I like to use the analogy of a swamp. These are usually the patients that are so toxic and so nutrient deficient, that when we look at their blood on the Darkfield Microscope it is a mess. The blood cells are stuck together from a lack of oxygen and there is so much stress evident, because their blood is so bad, it is difficult to know where to start. When these people are examined with the EDS (Electro Dermal Screening) the list of toxins and allergies is very long, it is therefore going to take some time to eliminate them.
Compare a stagnant swamp to a fast flowing stream. The swamp being the toxic, oxygen deficient, and infected patient and the stream is the healthy patient or Doctor. The stream is flowing quickly, with fresh water, ample oxygen, and nutrients, which are keeping it clean and healthy. The swamp on the other hand, is like a constipated, oxygen deficient patient that continues to load up on toxic food, household chemicals, coffee, cigarettes, and alcohol. The toxins have nowhere to go and they keep building up, like in a swamp.
When we come along and start putting in some good things to the swamp it doesn’t make much difference in the beginning because there are so many toxins that the good stuff is insignificant to start with. It just cleans up a very small part of the swamp, which fills back in with the existing toxins, almost right away.
It takes some time to completely drain the swamp of the existing toxins and pollutants by increasing the flow with additional water and decreasing the intake of more toxins. In the patient, this is done with more water, oxygen, and cleansing erbs to eliminate the existing toxins. Then, better food choices and supplements allow the body to start building the immune system and producing healthy cells to replace the existing weak and diseased cells.
The scenario that I see often is the patient who thinks they will get better by only taking the supplements, but they do not alter their diet or their toxic habits. Therefore, the swamp is being polluted and very little progress is achieved.
The stream must be maintained in this free running state or it will start to become stagnant again and return to its original swamp like characteristics. The longer it was a swamp the easier it is to return to that state. Return to any of the original habits that polluted the swamp in the first place and it is not long before it starts to get clogged up again.
Your body is ⅔’s water. How polluted your swamp is depends on the lifestyle choices you have made. Ultimately, toxicity builds up in the body over time. This buildup invites the proliferation of anaerobic microorganisms, causing disease. The more toxins that you have put in the body, in the way of nutrient deficient food (junk food), toxic chemicals (household products, chlorine, fluoride, preservatives, pesticides and drugs), and detrimental habits (smoking, coffee, alcohol), the longer it will take to clean it out. The longer it will take for the oxygen and improved nutrition to start to show improvements.
The more serious the disease, the more aggressive, determined and patient you have to be with your treatment protocols.
The more toxic you were, the more susceptible you are to having toxic reversal symptoms such as: fatigue, flu like symptoms, nausea, fevers, night sweats, and headaches. The toxins go through the body on their way out. Therefore, you may experience reactions as they are passing through.
