We live in a sick world that seems to be crying out… and conventional medicine doesn’t seem to be able to have the answers. In fact, conventional medicine not only lacks the proper tools, but drug and pharmaceutical companies profit billions of dollars from our pain and disease. We need to educate ourselves on the truth about preventing and treating disease naturally. To take control of our own health and that of our families, eat properly and use natural remedies for alternative methods for healing. You’ll change the environment, too!

Some Interesting Facts About Our Healthcare System:

  • According to the NY times, the U.S. spend 2.6 trillion on healthcare in 2010.
  • In comparison, China – the 2nd largest economy in the world – spends only $5.9 trillion G.D.P., compared to America’s $14.6 trillion. The U.S.  has quarter the population of China, yet we spend just on health care alone slightly less than half of what China spends on everything.
  • In the last 30 years, health care costs have been growing 2% faster than the overall economy, and yet we are a nation that is sick and unhealthy.

alternative medicineSome Important Facts About Disease:

  • Chronic Disease in the U.S. are the leading cause of death and disability – asthma, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are some of the most common forms.
  • About 45% of the population have at least one chronic disease.
  • Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 out of  10 deaths in the U.S., killing more than 1.7 million Americans yearly.
  • One major factor that indicates we need change is our obesity. Even our children and youth are over weight. In fact, according to the Center for Disease Control, the obesity rate for children had doubled. For adolescents, the obesity rate has tripled in the last 30 years. In 2010, 1/3 of our children and adolescents were overweight.  Many factors are responsible for this drastic weight problem and many health risks, long and short term, are associated with obesity such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, sleep problems, emotional, social and psychological problems that are all life alternating health concerns. That is definitely a sign that we need change.
  • Cancer has become a household word and almost every family in the U.S. has been touched by this deadly disease. Conventional medicine treats cancer with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery methods, but the so-called cure is worse than the disease.  According to Natural News, it’s a $200 billion a year business and sadly, 98% of conventional cancer treatments FAIL.  Only 2-4% of cancers respond well to chemotherapy cancer treatments.  There are many alternative ways to treat cancer that are highly effective. So, why do we continue to use conventional treatment when we have natural and alternative cures that have a 90% success rate? It’s all about money and PROFIT and the drug and pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know about it. To learn more about cancer cures and treatments, click here!

I believe that natural cures and alternative medicine can help to stop death and pain. Doctors and medical personnel are taught about what drugs help symptoms, but they aren’t trained on how to educate patients on prevention and natural cures. If mainstream medicine cured your disease, such as diabetes, then think of the money drug and pharmaceutical companies would be losing on insulin shots or pills.

The sad truth is your disease makes Big Pharma money and they don’t want you to be cured. So, take control and learn how to prevent and use natural cures without making the drug companies richer. Haven’t they taken enough of our money?

I don’t know if have noticed, but there is movement spreading throughout our country – a movement of living naturally, green, and organically. Called it what you want, but change is happening and its spreading. We need to embrace this change because – I believe – living as natural as possible is the only way to ensure good health and to stop the epidemic of disease, illness, and chronic health problems.

We can help prevent and cure disease by making some changes in our lives:

  • Eat a healthy diet that includes organic foods or local harvest foods, if possible.
    • Include lots of fresh vegetables.
    • Eat no processed foods.
    • Avoid GMOs.
    • Stay away from artificial dyes or additives.
    • Eat only grass-fed beef and free range poultry that hasn’t been contaminated with hormones or antibiotics.
    • Essentially, make your diet clean and lean.
  • Take time to de-stress. Whether it be practicing yoga, meditation, tai chi, listening to relaxing music or talking a walk in the park and enjoying nature, find what works for you and practice it regularly.
  • Stop using toxic products, especially cleaning or personal care products. Make you own DIY cleaning products or buy organic and truly natural products.
    • For cleaning, use natural products such as lemons, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide.
    • For personal care products, do your research and find what is best for your needs and always read labels very carefully.
    • A good rule is if you can’t pronounce, then don’t buy it. If in doubt – don’t buy!
  • Keep your immune system strong and healthy with antioxidant herbs and spices, such as garlic, turmeric, and ginger.
  • Keep your digestive system strong, healthy and in balance.
    • A health digestive system is the key to a healthy immune system.
    • Taking a probiotic daily can be very beneficial or eating fermenting foods such as sauerkraut, or raw organic yogurt.
  • Get plenty of restful peaceful sleep.

Take control of your health by preventing and treating disease naturally. If you don’t agree with what your doctor is telling you, then do your research and find the right answer. You life and your family’s life could depend on it! Live naturally, live green, and be happy!
