Health Tip Of The Week...

You are MORE Than What You Eat
Research presented at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Washington DC, found that diet induced "epigenetic" DNA modifications can be passed to future generations.  In other words, what you eat can affect your children's and grandchildren's health, even if they eat healthy themselves.                                                 -April, 2010 edition of NewScientist

Top Ten Health Care Myths - Part 3 of 5

Myth #5 - People lose their health because of bad luck or bad genetics
This medical myth will have you believe that disease strikes without cause and therefore the patient cannot do anything to prevent disease through healthy lifestyle choices.  Medicine considers itself scientific (another myth) but fails to acknowledge that all disease always has a cause and that often, that cause has to do with improper nervous system function, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies and a lack of exercise.  Disease is almost never a matter of bad luck or bad genes.
Myth #6 - Screening=Prevention
Screening isn't prevention…period.  In fact, nearly all the popular screening methods may play a role in causing disease like upping the possibility of breast cancer, due to excessive radiation exposure, when women submit to mammography. 
Myth #7 - Good Insurance=Good Health
This is the myth that contributed to the drug makers push for health care reform.  The myth that having health insurance will provide some sort of magical protection against disease.  The reality is that health insurance doesn't make you healthy!  It is only YOU and your choices about foods, toxic chemicals, exercise and having a healthy nervous system as part of a healthy lifestyle, that makes one healthy.
Myth #8 - Vaccines make you healthy
The idea that vaccines protect you from infectious disease is blatantly false in the long term.  Example:  this year's flu shot actually…

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

Real prevention of disease must involve disease prevention through nutrition, patient education about the causes of disease and lifelong changes in eating habits. Yet western medicine teaches doctors little or nothing about these things.  So called Modern Medicine doesn't even seem to believe in such ideas.  Yet, we know that your personal and  lifestyle choices are still the primary factors in determining whether or not you develop a degenerative disease.  Health PAYS!!!

  • "I had become very frustrated with the way I was feeling. My headaches made me very tired and I would frequently have to nap after work or school instead of doing things I enjoyed. Occasionally, I would miss work because the pain was so severe."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
