MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW how poorly they feel until they feel better. In fact, most of us don’t recognise fatigue, digestive problems, aches and pains, allergies, headaches, and more aren’t just annoying symptoms. They are early clues to impending diseases that can disable and kill us. Most heart disease starts in the womb. You can detect brain changes in teenagers that can predict the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Blood tests in children can predict who will develop diabetes later in life. Most cancers take more than 30 years to grow to the size where they can be detected.
How can we address problems we don’t even know we have?
There is an answer, and it lies in the revolution that is happening in medicine today. We, at PHP are part of this movement, and that is what you are going to learn about in this article.
Can A Real Cure Be Found for Chronic Illness?
One in three Americans has some type of chronic disease — and most of the rest of us are headed toward one. Most of us don’t feel as well as we should or could if only we understood how to care for and feed our bodies the way they were designed. Conventional medicine helps at the very end stages of disease. If you are very sick, have an emergency, break a bone or have a raging infection, then, yes, conventional acute care medicine is the right solution.
Mega-Soundness provides a way of understanding all the influences on our biology that are at the root of illness and how our lifestyle and environment interact with our genes to create the imbalances or balances that are the real determinants of disease or health. This medical view does not reduce symptoms and diseases to their component parts and traditional specialties, but studies the entire ecology of the body and its environment. It is the answer to the crisis we find ourselves in — an increasing epidemic of chronic disease and an impending economic collapse as more of our resources are put toward caring for the chronically ill.
Today, medicine is in a serious predicament. The way we understand health and disease no longer reflects biological reality or the biological laws of nature. We need to understand diseases are not fixed things you catch or that just show up out of context, but are related to the environment, your diet, genes, and lifestyle. We need to understand the body is an ecosystem and is a part of a larger ecosystem. Understanding how all the parts relate and what disturbs our ecological balance is more important than naming the disease, blaming the name for the problem, and thinking a drug will fix the disease.
What the Pivotal Health Plan and Mega-Soundness are about is “thinking and linking.” That means seeing all the patterns and relationships that make sense of your whole story — your lifestyle, stresses, genes, environment and how they interact with your biology to create imbalances that lead to disease. Our current way of thinking is outdated, wrong, and will not help us address our declining health as individuals or as a society.
That’s why we are making no progress and even backsliding when it comes to addressing chronic disease.
Let’s look at the data.
Chronic diseases affect 133 million Americans. That means in the average family of three, at least one person has a chronic disease. We are seeing an epidemic of autoimmune (24 million Americans), allergic (50 million Americans), and asthmatic (30 million Americans) diseases in this country. In addition, 20 percent of Americans (about 60 million people) have irritable bowel syndrome. In fact, the rates of nearly every modern disease–autoimmune diseases, allergic diseases, digestive problems, heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and dementia–are increasing. One in three children born today will have type 2 diabetes. One in two people over age 85 will develop dementia.
These problems are increasing in the population at a dramatic rate. And they affect everyone, either personally or through the suffering of someone close to them. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We have all the information we need right now to end or greatly reduce the suffering of so many. Most of the answers lie within the 7 Keys to Mega-Wellness.
The reality is most of us don’t know how bad we feel until we start feeling better. We accept chronic symptoms as a necessary part of life. That is just not necessary. We have solutions today you are not hearing:
- 1) We must understand how everything in our environment interacts with our genes to create health or disease, especially our diet and nutritional status. Air, water, microorganisms, exercise, trauma, psychosocial factors, environmental toxins and radiation also affect our genes and our health.
- 2) We must understand how our hormones and brain chemistry influence nearly every aspect of our health, why they get out of balance, and how to get them back in balance.
- 3) We must understand how most of us have smouldering hidden inflammation that will kill us until we learn how to control it.
- 4) We must understand our digestive system is at the core of our health, why it breaks down, and how to repair it.
- 5) We must understand how toxins and problems with our detoxification or waste management systems lead to chronic health problems and how to optimise this detoxification system.
- 6) We must understand the importance of energy–how we make it, why we lose it, and how to create more of it.
- 7) We must understand how the mind interacts with the body and how the body interacts with the mind to influence and affect each of our other systems.
Understand that these are really not all separate systems. They are part of a web of function and physiology that is at the root of both health and disease. This revolutionary new way of thinking about health and disease will guide you toward something many people have given up on... Mega Soundness
