Health - The Longevity Zen of Health Believes YOUR Health Is A Choice
Most disease is no more and no less than thousands of poor, reversible decisions
Maybe we should consider becoming our own best doctors. Consult with a medical doctor? Certainly, and by all means. Blindly buy into pharmaceutical medicines and expensive, painful invasive procedures with dubious outcomes? Maybe that works for you, I'm not so inclined to move that way. As the lady said, "Been there; done that." They got PAID.
Including J.A.M.A. (July 2000) and Lancet (1997), there is no shortage of documentation pertaining to the painful, awakening reality of more than one million Americans being needlessly killed by doctors every year in the U.S.
That tells us how Mr. Gutterman could afford to live in our neighborhood, owning several funeral cash-wringers, oops, excuse me, bereavement facilities or whatever the current politically correct term is.
No superior flexing of observation is required to absorb the reasons why it is a rare case for a doctor to serve
a patient's interest more than the doctor's interest. Rare doesn't mean 'never,' it does mean "very infrequently."
If you've noted the Hippocratic oath and the typical income of doctors in the past few decades, words are not necessary.
In every arena of every human life, not only for the Longevity Zen of Health , but as well the Shortcuts Way of Living, words are subordinate to the reality of deed.
Please do not confuse intentional injuries such as doctors carving their initials on a patient's stomach during surgery, or some similar act of a twisted mind with doctors who earn huge sums doing invasive things to the human body that cause far more injury than benefit. Did you know that the last three times a surgeon amputated the wrong arm or leg the surgeon was still paid, and paid plenty? Or that, tragically, doctors insisted that the other leg had to be cut off anyway due to the original need for the amputation?
Make no mistake: a knife slicing your body open is not unreasonably termed "invasive."
The Longevity Zen of Health asseverates that the indisputable majority of all angioplasties that were done in this country last year were unnecessary, and proves only to bloat the wallets of a greedy few even while demonstrating the decidedly murderous greed of those few. How can the Longevity Zen of Health paint such a broad stroke? Is there such a damning universal answer?
No less than three of every four victims of last year's angioplasties are already dead and buried.
Hundreds of thousands of coffins, each with another dead victim -- of this past year's angioplasty wave.
You've got that correct: Hundreds of thousands per year die within 182 days of the angioplasty.
THAT is where the Longevity Zen of Health comes off with such certainty: "What you do speaks so loudly no one needs to hear you flapping your lips."
The on-target nature of Monsignor Bernard Francis Kellogg's thinking still burn brightly today, and not least in this example of human bloodthirstiness superficially veiled in civilized conversations marked by clean white coats. The performance of those who prefer money to service or healing is both self-revealing and even self-explanatory. Numbers do not lie. People simply choose to manipulate numbers.
Arrogating the right of prescience by claiming they would surely have died anyway only leads to an observation that the surgeon and his hospital and his anesthesiologist did not receive a mere thousand or two thousand
dollars for that one-time effort, did they?
That any surgeon could be allowed - IS in fact allowed to keep up to a quarter million dollars of cash for a surgery that killed the patient is astonishing. Perhaps time and public disgust will change this. That's a responsibility you'll either accept, or not. If we cannot sway you into speaking up, we can at least apply these same facts to your instant benefit of health and wealth
In the meantime, the smartest possible course is to avoid having to go to the doctor in the first place. However hard it is for you to accept it, fact is fact, numbers don't lie:
Beside the sometime traumatic injuries that do occur, and so-called accidents -- (in point of fact there IS no such thing as an accident; only the results of bad decisions, including not paying attention to what's happening around us) -- outside of the treatment of traumatic wounds involving blood loss or bloodless head injuries, doctors, statistically, and too empirically kill and hurt far, FAR more people than they benefit. Please do not confuse this as an opinion: doctors have been killing people since long before they believed in bleeding and purging, a practice which only ended after nearly two thousand years of being a basic part of a physician's purported 'healing' methods.
Yes, from an emotional point of view
great arguments can follow about this committed doctor or that dedicated surgeon. Those of you who are reasonably well-read are already familiar with the truth. Such committed doctors are the rare exception.
Is there anyone among us who doubts the many thousands of people this past year alone who have died in U.S. hospitals JUST from being administered the wrong medications? Do you need to be told who hand-wrote all those prescriptions? Can your brain even understand what it means to lose thousands of distinctly unique, usually-beloved babies and adults EVERY SINGLE WEEK AFTER WEEK AFTER WEEK, because of a wrong medication or basically stupid instruction being
administered or obeyed?
Do you have sufficient faculty of visualization to see the coffins of 300,000 victims of unnecessary bypasses? We're not talking about the rare case here, friend; we refer to the firmly documented fact of many thousands of people being killed each month by a scribbled, erroneously-read or improperly filled prescription medicine; thousands of additional people killed in America every single week by invasive,
The proof submitted to you by the Longevity Zen of Health that this is a prime example of unnecessary surgery is that so many of them die within days, weeks, or months.
If you want to live longer, and better, you absolutely must take command of your
medical care, instead of trusting a man or woman who's driving a Mercedes Benz and has stock options that your misery, or the pain of your child paid for. For those who cry that doctors go to school for many years and should be generously compensated, we
have a choice: we can agree that they should be well-paid, and see that they are, without them becoming millionaires off of other people's pain and misery, or we can say,
"Pfui!! If financial wealth is what you want, sell something for a living, or write
great songs, or paint ten thousand houses: medicine used to be and once again needs to be reserved exclusively for those who wish to serve others more than they wish to serve their personal appetites."
Driving an eighty thousand dollar car to impress your neighbors instead of an equally safe $10,000 car, while investing the other $70,000 saving the lives of starving people?
Speaks for itself, doesn't it? (Don't neglect to include in such computations the additional insurance, vanity plates, and aggravation over scratched paint, or the cost of thousands of expensive cars being stolen every week).
You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see the immutable and eternally unchanging logic of this.
When you find foods that you really like, for example, that just HAPPEN to promote good health while simultaneously repairing some of the damage we do to our
bodies, we are instantly killing three birds with one stone:
Eating delicious foods, which is critical to the health of your soul, and your attitudes;
- Promoting good health, which brings a long list of
benefits from better moods and better sex to increased productivity, higher incomes and liking yourself more;
- Repairing at least some of the damage we regularly commit to our health. Right now, you're breathing in tens of millions of free radicals each day, ugly scavengers that very literally eat your body and accelerates aging along with profoundly increasing the likelihood of heart disease, blood diseases, and more. There are many tasty foods that address these issues directly, quickly, and to far greater benefit than vitamins or 'repair jobs' by your doctor.
Do you understand that red foods that come out of the ground, from watermelon or tomatoes to cantaloupe or carrots,
rapidly and effectively (concomitant with primary Longevity Zen of Health goals)
- increase the strength of your immune system,
- effectively delays a great deal of what we call 'physical aging factors,'
- fights off cancer, AND promotes oxygenation and immediately healthier blood,
- significantly higher brain function, and more?!!
All these benefits, and a dozen or more others, all from eating red foods. You think you're intelligent? Please, don't tell us; show us. What you do speaks so loudly you need not flap your gums at us. We already know who and what you are. You have proved it in these past 24 hours, and you're proving it in these current 24 hours, and you will add even more to the proof in the next 24 hours, and the next, won't you?
In fact, you ate just a few hours ago, and you'll be eating again in the next few hours. What are you going to eat? Far more
importantly than what it shows the world, even more importantly than how your diet will end up impacting others, the simple fact is, your next meal will tell YOU plenty about yourself, where you're going, and how much time you probably have left in this
Yes, folks, science is that far advanced over previous centuries to the point that we can even estimate within a matter of months the date of your likely departure from this life based in no small measure
upon what your very next meal is. We already know that you possess the gift of logic; what remains for us to see today is whether you possess the more critical gift of using that gift of logic.
In the long-running argument/debate/feud that has existed between those who subscribe to the Asklepian view (doctors, who try to fix things from the outside in), and Hygeans, who believe in strengthening the body's naturally present resources to successfully defeat any challenges to the body, there is a huge gap. Huge as in unbridgeable. Even as professors of medicine, including an unusually effective Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett Koop;, or Dr. Andrew Weil, and so many other highly-qualified practicioners, move us all closer to the Hygean approach, too many more argue on behalf of externally-produced chemical and pharmacologic approaches to disease. They make more money. That should be the end of the story.
One would think that a close look at the two syllables that comprise the word disease would suffice to guide us all towards making better, healthier decisions. Sad to say, humans still seek that lazy way out, relying on what they believe to be the fast-fix of chemical intervention, rather than enjoying more than the most superficial understanding that the "health" is from the Latin word that translates into English as "balance."
One of these days, the majority of people will understand just why a prescription is required for these chemical weapons used against disease and infection: in every single case, the drug is so dangerous it requires a doctor's signed order for its use. This is no more and no less than what a prescription is. Without exception, every single prescription medicine has ancillary effects that are lethal or life-alteringly unpleasant. Otherwise a doctor's permission would not be required. The Asklepian view states that ridding the body of one disorder is well worth the occasional occurence of death, well worth the consistent production of secondary injuries caused by the medication.
Whether it's antibiotics, which work specifically by attacking the immune system in order to make it work harder, rendering our bodies vastly incapable of fighting off invaders naturally; or most of the topical treatments for skin disease, which have side effects such as destroyed liver function, renal impairment, or a host of drugs that have spawned resistant strains of bacteria that no longer respond to conventional treatment or the drugs that were invented to kill them off, the human race is now facing it's second great wave of medical challenge: how to change over, or, rather, to change BACK to the naturopathic route to wholeness, which is the actual translation and meaning of the word "healing."
For example, in a typical year in Haiti, a hundred or more people die each year from anthrax, which is a naturally occurring organism all around the world. Yet, when the US experienced a so-called "anthrax scare" in 2001, the deaths of five Americans caused hundreds of millions of dollars to be wasted addressing the issue, not to mention causing uneccessary panic and trepidation.
Included in that fritterance of fundage was the inoculation of two thousand individuals with the heaviest antibiotics known to man in hope of preventing their development of anthrax symptoms. Not only did they find out it had all been unnecessary over-precaution, they also learned that, for the rest of their lives they would have little or no auto-immune protection anymore, because antibiotics by definition destroy the body's immune system of immunosuppressants, antibodies, white cells, and more.
To speak of "more" is to realize that, more than at any time in history before or since the Black Plague which killed off forty percent of Europe's population in a short time, humankind needs urgently to wean off the chemicals, and move back to nutrition and health promotion products that occur naturally. "Naturally" means it grows in soil.
In every walk of our oldest civilizations, particularly the Oriental, natural and herbal approaches persistently and consistently outperform chemical approaches.
Look at the perfect example of cruciforms such as broccoli and cauliflower. Including these marvels of nature in your regular diet is irrefutably vital to fighting the onset of cancers and other oft-lethal assaulters of our natural wholeness. Fresh broccoli several times per week in your diet is of far, even exponentially, greater impact and benefit than a dozen fat daily vitamin pills.
If you think that swallowing a washcloth might clean out some of the garbage in your human pipes, try eating lettuce or celery, good bran or shredded wheat, because they are fast, efficient tools for cleaning out plenty. At the top of such a list, the Longevity Zen of Health recommends arabo-galactin. Along with providing your intestine with a magnificent fiber that cleans in ways nothing else on earth can do, there is another huge benefit to arabo-galactin.
The double-value of arabo-galactin is found in the fact that arabo-galactin converts to butyrate in the intestines, and butyrate just happens to be the primary food of the intestine.
Additionally, the Longevity Zen of Health urges you to learn and take good note of the fact that, when you combine this amazing health shortcut with the primary set of Longevity shortcuts (more air, water, unheated oil, air-dried sea salt, and good bacteria such as is found in kefir), the results include rapid weight loss with concomitant increases in energy and strength, greater muscle tone and productivity, far stronger immune system, measurably faster, more creative thinking... ... and on and on and on... all from increasing fiber and water in your diet, EVEN IF YOU EAT LARGE AMOUNTS OF GARBAGE FOOD!.
In all probability, you have, at least until today, been guilty of vastly underestimating the power of air in your diet. As with so many of life's greatest treasures, it's perhaps our single most underestimated source of energy, healing, refreshment, and more. Increasing the number of deep, really deep breaths you take each day, and the amount of water that you drink, not only cures several dozen different maladies in and of themselves, but as well, serve to boost immune function observably, and measurably. It will also boost your IQ by up to twenty or more points in a matter of weeks when you do at least ten proper respirations per day.
Proper deep breathing also increases your muscle tone, reduces sensitivity to cold, reduces heart rate and blood pressure, and most assuredly elevates your ability to construct solutions to challenges. For some of us, the most attractive feature of proper breathing is that it dramatically --- to the point of being revolutionary -- enhances and multiplies your creative responses to challenge. Ideas flow faster, smoother, and smarter than at any time in your life... right back to when you USED TO breathe properly as a child. More than any other dietary factors, the most measurable cause of your learning curve dropping so dramatically between childhood and post-adolescence is the reduction of oxygen feeding your brain on a daily, hourly, and minute-by-minute basis. That is why proper breathing is considered by all of the world's great masters to be the single most important and powerful tool available to a human.
How fascinating that it is also the one and only tool we cannot survive more than a few minutes without the benefit of its presence. Hmm. Now THAT is food for thought... more literally than you have recognized up until now. Let today be the day you alter that forever and for the better: YOUR better.
Do you realize that, with few exceptions, who consistently outproduce those around them - thanks to shortcuts. Everything that is red which grows in the ground has a triple effect of being anti-carcenogic, immune-boosting, and anti-aging?
Eat these things regularly and feel for yourself what wonders they work when you are consistent about ingesting them. This shortcut doesn't even require a couple of months to kick in; only weeks or, for those who are also drinking larger amounts of water each day, just a matter of days for you to see your energy levels increasing, sleep requirements happily, restfully decreasing, as well as other great, observable benefits
Stop looking for the quick fixes of medicines, or even vitamins. Fresh fruits and vegetables, a gallon of water each day, and many, MANY more deep breaths of fresh air, even if it's relatively 'dirty' metropolitan air, all work individually AND corporately to provide you with a profoundly healthier physical environment in which to live, dream, and enjoy your turn on the carousel of life, with wholeness, balance... and health.
Even better, this approach does not take years, or even months to yield significant effect; it's generally just a day or three before you begin feeling more energy, more vitality, more problem-solving ability, so you need not take anyone's word for it: just do it and see for yourself. You're not even ordered to eliminate all the crapulous food from your diet; only that you add more air, water, and ground-based items!
I realize you think this is great stuff, & applies to most people, but not you. Well, we have news for you. What you do speaks so loudly we canít hear a word youíre saying. You can come away from this document pleased to have created a few better thoughts, or you can make it your business to read it again and then write down on a piece of paper three, four, perhaps five of the points most pertinent for you to remember towards acting upon.
That will leave only the question of what action you will take, and when.
Youíre now entering the most powerful minute of your life.
What are you doing with it?
No need to say; actions speak loudest, yes?
Subscribing to the tenets of The Longevity Zen of Health
demands that you teach yourself more, if only on narrow subjects.
ANYTHING that may be bothering you
is something you can learn more about... quickly, and naturally.
