Sweet Poison

sugar

By now everyone knows that SUGAR is bad for you.  Well, maybe not everyone!  You see, the majority of the population has been under the spell of the propaganda being spewed forth about how sugar is really not that bad.  “It’s Natural”! “Got a problem with artificial sweeteners?  We use pure natural sugar in our soft drinks!”  Different poisons , same affect – POOR HEALTH!

The charts below illustrate some of the toxic effects of sugar and the artificial sweetener aspartame:

If you read my post on CELLULAR INFLAMMATION you learned that there are three main things that cause it, toxins, bad fats and sugar.  Cellular inflammation (inflammation of the cell’s membrane) basically causes the cell not to function correctly and eventually die.

The inflamed membrane affects the cell’s ability to get rid of waste, absorb nutrients, and it’s receptors become blunted and non-functional, ultimately causing cell death.  Depending on which cells are affected, determines what disease you doctor will diagnose!  (That’s the reason the above charts seem to have unrelated diseases, but they all are affected by cells dying off).

An article written by Brad Chase in today’s NaturalNews.com explained a good three step process to break a sugar addiction!  First you make sure all your fruits a veggies are ORGANIC.  This produce tastes better, has a higher nutritional content, and contains slower-breaking-down complex carbs.  This is a key factor.

Secondly, if you consume pastries and cookies, you can substitute a whole grain bread and raw honey.  This is not the healthiest option, but it can help break the habit of the simple sugars in baked goods!  Again these are steps taken to break the addiction to sugar.

And thirdly if you are craving crunchy snacks use raw nuts and trail mixes as a substitute for chips, pretzels etc.  Nuts are a great source of nutrients, just make sure they are raw and organic.  If you want to “kick it up a notch”, soak the nuts and them dehydrate them.  This increases their digestibility and actually makes certain nuts taste better!  You can do a search for the simple process of doing this.

Before long, your “taste” for sugar will actually disappear, or be severely curtailed.  When I was a young man (about 100 years ago) I would put multiple (3 to 4) teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, now I drink it black!

You will also see many of your chronic symptoms disappear, and you will not get the annual bout with the flu!

And then you can take it further to other aspects of your environment, and deal with toxins and bad fats!

Firearms VS Doctors/Drugs!

There are a few definitions of PERSPECTIVE, but this is the one that applies here: The ability to perceive things in their actual interrelations or comparative importance: tried to keep my perspective throughout the crisis.

Let’s put things into perspective!  there has been a lot of talk about the prohibiting of firearms due to the “mass shootings” of recent memory.  Granted that these events are horrific and bring much sorrow to the families and friends of the victims, but they receive too much attention given the numbers involved.

What about the grief and sorrow brought on the the families and friends of chronically ill, when the pass away?

When you look at the annual deaths by firearms compared to the annual deaths by the medical establishment, there is NO comparison:

Doctors VS Guns

And these facts receive NO media coverage at all!  Three quarters of a MILLION people die each year at the hands of the medical establishment, and NOT A WORD!!  That’s more than 2,000 deaths PER DAY!

Statistically, if you look at the annual accidental deaths by  physicians, they are 9,000 times more dangerous than guns!

These are pretty sobering statistics that show we MUST make a change to our healthcare system immediately!  Doctors for the most part are really just pharmaceutical sales people.  Think about it, who “owns” the medical schools and what is actually taught?  Big pharma basically owns the schools (they donate a bunch of cash) and the curriculum is not focused on what the actual causes of diseases are, but rather when a patient has a particular symptom – there is a drug for that!  A pill for every ill.  This doesn’t fix the problem, but rather it ensures that the patient will be a customer for life (a life of pain and misery).  Don’t misunderstand me, there are times when drugs can be the only viable choice, but this should only be in a very small percentage of cases.

This is a HUGE industry and a real money-maker for the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies!

Doctor Joke

This has to change, and I believe we are slowly changing to a new paradigm.  A paradigm of natural health, good food, good supplementation, proper exercise, and a good spiritual base.  That’s all we need to stay healthy and vibrant!

The question isWill we make this change in time to save the masses from further being enslaved by the medical establishment, or will the drug companies/insurance companies/government be too large and powerful for us to stop this needless suffering and death?  Time will tell!

To your health!
