Keeping Healthy Without Medicines

Aug 17, 2007
Are you struggling with failing health/ are you overweight or suffering from chronic fatigue. Is your health was steadily going down the drain. Are you a junkie addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs? Do you use oral and topical medications to suppress your eczema/psoriasis (side effects of corticosteroids)? Have you been on antibiotics for months at a time for recurring throat or stomach infections?

Unfortunately, instead of generating cure, the medications only temporarily suppress your symptoms but weakened my immune system, and in the long run make you even sicker. The combination of a bad diet (toxic foods) and the side effects of the drugs can affect your moods and even send you into depression.

Do you know that that the combination of an unhealthy diet and the huge number of allopathic medications can cause toxins to accumulate in your blood, lymph, and tissues, resulting in toxemia? These toxins can greatly contribute to your weak immune system, rendering you more susceptible to stress, fatigue, and chronic disease. You have to radically change your diet and lifestyle if there is any hope for improving your health.

The road to recovery

First of all, you will have to switch your diet from SAD (an acronym for "Standard American Diet") to a wholesome diet of fresh, organically grown fruits, vegetables, and nuts, mostly in their raw form. As far as possible, eliminate from your diet the starchy stuff like grains, rice, pasta, and breads as well as meat and dairy products.

The results of the diet change, believe it or not, will be dramatic. In a few weeks, you will start feeling better, you will notice yourself shelling pounds effortlessly (and never have to struggle again to keep my weight down). Besides, your energy level and stamina will improve dramatically. You will be able to function better overall, become calmer, centered and focused, and generally feel happier. Above all, your overall resistance to infections will become excellent. You will no longer have a cold, flu, ear, throat, sinus or breast infection or any other infections. You yourself will be amazed that even such things like debilitating back pains respond to simple treatments and change of diet. Over the years, your health and resistance to disease will continue to improve and in time you will also experience a complete recovery from my life long chronic problems such as eczema as well as from devastating side effects of the steroid's immune suppressive effects.

Remember, if you overeat, or if you eat the wrong foods like starch, or cooked food, you will suffer the consequences fairly rapidly. This could be in the form of clogged sinuses, nasal discharges, poor sleep, nervousness, irritability, and low energy. That punishment is definitely not worth the brief moment of pleasure for the taste buds.

On the other hand, healthy oils such as flaxseed oil, olive oil, rapeseed oil, rice bran oil can help control your weight and greatly improve your health overall. There are, literally, hundreds of medical case histories with "miraculous" recoveries or cures after patients switched from allopathic to holistic programs and from cooked food to raw food. You should also explore the fantastic healing power of therapeutic clays, fulvic minerals and shilajit, Transfer Factor, wheat grass juice, seaweed and algae extract, glyconutritionals/saccharides and the Himalayan Crystal salt, (common table salt is toxic).

Restrict intake of the following in your diet: margarine, sugar-free-products, aerated colas, sugar. Learn to care for yourself, your family and your pets with home and herbal remedies instead of rushing off for a consultation with an MD or a veterinarian for minor injuries or sickness. The MD or veterinarian will, in all probability, just push antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, or expensive medical tests. You will be surprised to see all your aches and pains and symptoms of disease vanish almost of their own accord.

Last, but not the least, remember there is no alternative to a healthy regimen of physical and mental exercise. You can take up aerobics, Yoga, Tai Chi, dance or whatever suits your predilection. But a healthy combination of exercise, meditation, good food, relaxation and taking a break from time to time, from your daily routine are mandatory to overall good health.
