Why Your Health Depends on You
Medicine is getting worse and worse. Big Pharma and the health insurance industry want money, lots of money, more and more money. If doctors don’t get on the money train, they get the boot-lose their license and have to find a new way to make a living.
Meanwhile, asthma rates are skyrocketing. Breast cancer rates, too. Prostate cancer. Type 2 diabetes. Heart disease. In fact, all sorts of diseases are coming at us, hot and heavy.
Name a health issue, any health issue, and it’s getting worse-more people, in worse shape, no healing.
Time goes on, and you end up with a pile of prescriptions, taking them as you’re told. You wonder why life is lumping and bumping its way downhill, but nobody tells you drugs can create mayhem.
Here’s the problem: Prescription drugs and surgery are the only arrows in medicine’s quiver. You hear talk about the value of “lifestyle” advice, but doctors can only take action on things listed in the American Medical Association’s medical insurance codes.
Health – approved codes only
Well, surprise, surprise! They have no codes for nutrition, supplements, exercise, toxins to avoid, and on and on. And doctors receive no training in lifestyle choices. Plus, they can’t diagnose or treat anything not found in the approved medical codes.
And to top it all off with a big, red bow, we have the fact that few doctors understand how the endocrine system works. Even how to recognize if it’s gone off the tracks. Excuse me, but the endocrine system controls ALL of health, and if you don’t know that, treating anything is risky.
For instance, medicine isn’t aware that most concussions (68+%) damage the endocrine system. So concussed football players, for one example, never, ever get tested for endocrine function.
Moving along, a low-fat diet murders your endocrine system. Statin drugs do, too. Antacids. Antidepressants. Vaccines, of course. Hormone replacement drugs, whether chemical or natural. And so it goes. Most prescriptions are bullets aimed at your health.
Many researchers, though, test the various endocrine glands thoroughly: How those crucial glands work, how they interact, problems created when they falter-things ranging from basic to exotic. They write voluminously about their amazing results, but that information never makes it to doctors.
As a result, exciting, helpful solutions never become available to us. But digging through the research taught me how to spot problems and figure out a way to get through or around them. Now I write about the answers I found so others can understand what’s going on, without the 30-year slog I experienced.
Getting the help you need
Because fewer and fewer people are getting the help they need, my articles are going back to the basics: The parts of the endocrine system, what they do, and how to know when they need help.
Diet plays a big role in everybody’s health, but your diet has to fit you. Our needs differ with what body parts are struggling and how much. Same with exercise. And supplements, too.
Nowadays, the need to know how to spot health irregularities has become a tsunami, and we can’t help or protect our health is we don’t know anything’s wrong.
From now on, then, I’ll write mostly about how to know when your endocrine system is in trouble. Any health problem you have started there; if you don’t understand the workings of your endocrine system, you’re fighting in the dark.
Diseases start in endocrine system
Diabetes, cancer, and other diseases start in the endocrine system. If you can spot endocrine problems early on, you can prevent disease. Reverse it, too.
My Moving to Health program will continue to have all the information you need to deal with health issues: What the endocrine system is and how it works, what your symptoms mean, and the diet, supplements, etc., etc., etc. you need to get your mojo back.
Stress, anxiety, diabetes, premature aging, hair loss, constant fatigue, depression, a lack of joy, and sleep problems-endocrine problems all-announce your body needs help. Pronto!
Endocrine research is exploding with new information that can greatly improve your health-but only if you know about it. I want you to know about it.
God is good,
