Yes, you can heal yourself

I truly believe that our bodies are able to prevent and cure disease, and to defend us against intruders both living (bacteria) and inert (chemicals and other toxins) if we minimize the toxins they're exposed to, and give them the nutrients they need to be healthy.

Unfortunately, the current state of our world makes that difficult:
  • Our soil is dead, requiring massive amounts of artificial 'fertilizer' to enable crops to grow, and massive amounts of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides to control the weeds that compete with the crops, and the pests that devour the crops, because the crops aren't strong enough to defend themselves.
  • The crops that do grow are devoid of nutrients because there aren't any nutrients in the soil for them to assimilate; they do, however, take up the chemicals in the soil, on their leaves, and in the air... 
  • Our animals are raised in inhumane conditions and fed substances unrecognizable as 'food'.  Their omega 3:6 ratios are extremely unhealthy and their meat is laced with the chemicals they eat.
  • Our air and water are contaminated.
  • Our houses and furnishings are built with materials that give off noxious gases.
  • Our mouths are full of mercury and our brains are full of aluminum.
  • And ... the products we use to prepare and store our food, and to clean our bodies and our homes, are carcinogenic. 

This overload of chemicals is more than our bodies can handle.  Yes, our bodies ARE designed to eliminate toxins, but not in the amounts we are confronted with today.  While our government may claim the amounts allowed in the products we buy are 'safe,' these contaminants have never been tested as a group and the cumulative effects are causing increasing levels of disease.  It's obvious that WE ARE  NOT THRIVING.

Some people reach their body's threshold early and are affected even as children.    

For the rest of us, the older we get, the more likely we are to suffer some form of disease whether it's arthritis, cancer, cataracts, dementia, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, osteoporosis, or Parkinson's. Many people now have these diseases in the prime of their lives.  That's how bad it is.

I cannot accept this status quo!
My goal for myself and my family is...
to live without the ailments normally associated with aging, 
and without the need for pharmaceutical drugs.
This blog is where I describe the things I am doing to achieve that goal.

I am SURE that by avoiding toxins and maximizing nutrition

I am lucky in that we are not, the first part of my plan is to avoid all the chemicals described above - stop adding to the problem.  The second part is to maximize nutrition and avoid unhealthy foods and cooking processes - give our bodies the means to heal themselves. And the third part is to slowly remove any toxins currently in our bodies.

You can do this, too.

If you are already sick from overexposure to these things, you must work with a detox practitioner to help you get rid of them safely.  If you detox too quickly, or using the wrong protocol, you can kill yourself! 

If you are currently taking prescription drugs YOU MUST CONTINUE TAKING THEM!  Even if you start to feel better, do not stop taking your prescription medication without consulting your doctor.
