Diseases

The Cause of all disease    

 In a nutshell - A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM is the MAIN cause of all disease.

Other factors that are now affecting our state of health are:
Toxic overload
Acidic pH
The bottom line is … if your IMMUNE system is working, you do NOT get sick !

It is as SIMPLE as that … If your Immune system works, you are in a state of vibrant health...  The good news is that your body is continually trying to reach a state of homeostasis (balance) and good health, but due to the factors written below, is often severely compromised in its attempts.
Do you think it is OK to get ill?  Are you aware that ill-health is affecting more and more people, at a younger and younger age?  Most people I meet seem to accept this disastrous state of affairs as NORMAL !!  It is NOT normal to be sick

It is NORMAL to be healthy and live to a ripe old age of over 100 years and yet we have been programmed to believe that ill-health is normal and that we are old at 60 and need to retire !  THIS IS BOLLOCKS !

Animals in the wild don’t get sick; they do not suffer heart attacks, cancer diabetes.  They have no obesity, no tooth decay, no asthma, no arthritis, no constipation AND they live to the equivalent of about 180 years old (20 times their maturity age). Animals do not get sick unless they are wounded or are in captivity and are exposed to toxins as we are, then they get ALL our diseases … even the neuroses !!

We have a health crisis in this modern age (see panel) and as a result more and more people have turned to taking prescription and non-prescription drugs than ever before and yet the problems continue to get worse, NOT BETTER !  What does this tell us ???  
It says categorically that STANDARD MEDICAL SCIENCE is failing to cope with this problem.  The reason …. Medical science and the use of drugs are merely treating the SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE rather than getting to the underlying cause of the problem.
We really need to take another look from a completely different angle, at this crisis !   There are tribes in remote unpolluted regions living on this earth right now that do not get sick and live to an average age of over 100 years.

What causes the WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM ?
1.         TOXINS
2.         DEFICIENT NUTRIENTS
3.         HORMONAL IMBALANCE
4.         STRESS, Emotional and Mental
5.         Electro-Magnetic Radiation (EMR)
6.         Acidic pH

So basically, if we could prevent and control just 6 factors in our lives, we would have radiant health forever!  We can do this, and AWARENESS of the problem is the key !
Lets look at TOXINS.  This is the BIG change that has occurred in our world over the last 60 years.  Nearly 100 million man-made toxins have been released into our environment since World War 2.  These toxins are found in our air, our food, our water; in our homes and on our skins. Toxins in the form of drugs are given to us by our doctors !!  The use of these chemical toxins has had a disastrous effect on our health.  

Although our bodies have amazing and have wonderful detoxing mechanisms … our lungs, our skin, our livers and Kidneys, which  were adequate a century ago to cope with toxins our ancestors were exposed to, there is just too much toxic onslaught right now, and our bodies cannot detox quick enough.  These toxins now are building up in our fatty layers, causing our organs to get sick and die.
Where are these Toxins found ?

HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS.  
Chemicals we now use in the home on a regular basis are man-made toxins.  If they are man-made, they are toxic.  Our cleaning materials are now mostly petro-chemicals or caustic soda products.  These are highly dangerous, and getting into our body via the air we breathe and through our skins.  The best safety test before using a product is to ask yourself this simple question “if you cannot drink it, do not use it” !   We spray insecticide nonchalantly in our homes that cause insects and other pests to curl up and die immediately, and yet we do not give a thought as to what these toxins are doing to our own body, our children and our pets.  If they are killing nature, they are killing us, just a bit more slowly, that is all.  Toxic fumes emitted from non-stick frying pans kill birds in the kitchen !  If the birds are dying, so are we.

SKIN AND PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS. 
What we put on our skins …. Our ancestors used good old vegetable oil or animal fat, we use ‘Mineral oil” based creams.  These are petro-chemicals, and apart from being Xeno-oestrogens, they are carcinogenic too.  Not only do we used mineral oils, but next time you pick up your hand cream or face cream or shampoo, just read all the chemicals that are now added as preservatives, stabilizers etc etc.   Everything that touches our skin goes into our bodies.

OUR WATER.  
All municipal water is chlorinated, some is even fluorinated !!  Chlorine and Fluorine are extremely dangerous toxic elements. Chlorine is a carcinogenic.  We are told that the “baddies” to avoid are germs, and therefore water should be chlorinated...This is an outright lie !  Exposure to Germs is how our immune systems develop … once we are exposed to a bacteria or virus the immune system is strengthened.  What we desperately need to avoid are the toxins.  Chlorine kills everything in the water ….  We ingest chlorine through our digestive track, when drinking water, our skins when showering and our lungs when we breathe in the chlorine vapour whilst showering.  Yes, this is in minute amounts, but there is a steady accumulation of chlorine in the body that eventually affects and kills our own organs.  Chlorine causes scarring of the arteries and is one of the main reasons for the high incidence of arteriosclerosis. (Cholesterol is then deposited in an attempt to repair the damage done by chlorine). Fluoride is one of the most toxic chemicals in the world, it is a by-product from the manufacture of super-phosphate fertilizers, and is reportedly good for our teeth.  This is a lie.   Fluoride is toxic and dangerous and adversely affects every organ in the body, especially the thyroid gland.

OUR FOOD
Wow, where do I begin.   Our food is so full of toxins.  Man-made chemicals are added to everything man touches.  Man has interfered in every aspect of our food chain, from production until the food gets into our mouths...  Pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, growth hormones, anti-biotics are given to protect the weak man-made plants now grown in man-made soils so deplete of natural nutrients that man in his wisdom has added just 3 elements back to a soil that is often pure vermiculite.  These inorganically grown plants not only contain so many toxins, they are deficient in nutrients as well.   Many of these plants have been genetically modified, creating more toxins.  Additives are then added to preserve the food to prolong shelf life, to make the unpalatable, nutrient devoid food taste nice, colourants to give it some attraction.  There are in fact 15000 food additives that we do not even know about because they do NOT have to be put on the labels.  Those mentioned on the labels are the chemicals for which people have KNOWN intolerances, e.g. MSG, Tartrazine, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, to mention just a few. 
Our meat is just as bad.  The meat industry is there to obtain maximum profits.  Growth hormones are given to speed up their growth.  Anti-biotics are given to keep these poor weak animals alive because of their crowded unsanitary, inhumane living conditions. The foods they eat are now man-made and toxic….  If we ingest the meat, we ingest these toxins.
The dairy industry is now also a major health hazard.  Again drugs, growth hormones, are given to the animals.  The milk is then pasteurisation and homogenised.  Pasteurisation heats the milk to very temperatures which kills all bacteria, but also kills the enzymes making the milk harder to digest and an unnatural product.  Homogenisation is the worst … this is now necessary to prolong shelf life.  The cream and milk is spun at a very high rate, this with the heat turns the milk into a trans fatty acid which attacks the linings of the arteries, the first step to heart disease (See heart disease for more details).
So … in a nut shell,  if it’s man-made, it is so toxic,  DON’T EAT IT !!

PRESCRIPTION AND NON-PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
Although I have left this to last, it is by no means LEAST.  In fact the growth of the pharmaceutical giants has added unbelievable toxins to our daily lives. There are thousands, probably millions of safe natural products that do get to the underlying cause of disease, and also treat the symptoms of disease without side effects, BUT these natural products cannot be patented.  This means that the pharmaceutical companies cannot make money out of these products, as they do not have exclusivity to them.  They only make billions of dollars from patentable drugs, for which they can charge any price … e.g. ONE single dose of a chemotherapy drug my friend is on costs her R27000.00, and she has to take one per week !  This is DISGUSTING !   Prescription and non-prescription drugs are chemicals that sometime come from nature, but an atom of the molecule is changed, so it no longer is the natural product.  This new molecule, they can patents.  The problem is when taking this altered molecule, it is alien to your body, a toxin, and therefore there will be many side effects….  One of the chief sources of toxins is taking drugs
2. Watch this space for info on Nutrient Deficiencies, coming soon
3. See the main body of the web page for all the info on Hormonal imbalance
4. Stress, I have SOOOO much to say about this subject … coming soon
5. EMR.  Cut down on exposure to EMR and protect yourself … more info soon
6. Acidic pH … basically if you have an ALKALINIC pH (which is, or rather should be, the norm), pathogens cannot survive, and cancer cells cannot grow !! Lots more on this subject coming soon.

HOW DO WE GET BETTER?
We give our bodies the BASIC FUEL, avoid the TOXINS and let the BODY HEAL ITSELF.  THATS IT!

OUR DIET  ... BASIC FUEL NO 1
We need to look at our nutritional intake.
            a)        We need to eat organic as much as possible.  Not only are you getting the full-range of nutrients in the correct  levels, but you are avoiding the toxic chemicals associated with inorganic farming methods
             b)      We need to supplement these days with whole-food supplements.  We are needing more anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals to balance against the devastating effects of pollution, and we just cannot eat enough to keep us safe.

OUR HORMONAL BALANCE ...BASIC FUEL NO 2
We need to make sure our hormones are balanced by supplementing with the "Mother" hormone, PROGESTERONE.  If the "dam" of this essential hormone is kept full, our body can make any of the other hormones in the D4 steroid pathway. This means that ,despite the fact that we are stressed and constantly draining our progesterone levels to produce the stress hormones, by supplementing twice daily with NATURONE we can maintain enough progesterone in the body to manufacture all the other steroids responsible to keeping us balanced, physically, mentally and emotionally.

AVOID TOXINS
STOP putting toxins into the body !  Stop applying toxic skin care products, creams and shampoos.  Avoid all the man-made chemicals in processed foods. Avoid eating chemically sprayed foods. Filter your water. Use only bio-degradable, non toxic products in your homes.
DETOX the toxins that have accumulated over the years.  Just one detox will make you feel a different person.  I suggest a Liver Cleans to get rid of gall stones that hamper the effective removal of toxins in the liver and then to follow with a  good detox diet.

The Liver Cleanse
 YOU WILL NEED
6 X 1 litre box apple juice
4 X Table spoons Epsom salts
1/2 cup cold pressed olive oil
2/3 cup squeezed Fresh grapefruit (pink is best)

FINIS!!!
This cleanse can be followed with a colonic irrigation the next day if you wish.

You can repeat this cleanse initially every 3 weeks for a few months and thereafter once every 6 months

Detox diet
Until you release the toxins you will never experience vibrant good health nor will you be able to lose weight. On this diet people have lost up to 3-4 kgs on the day of the fast
Probably the best way to start detoxing, if you have never done it before, is to do Ann Louise Gittleman’s The Fast track detox diet.
It is important to do this slower detox because if you are very toxic, the sudden release of toxins from another detox program may make you feel very ill indeed.
She introduces a 6 day Liver and Colon support diet where you get these major detox organs into a ready state to purge the toxins during an amazing ONE DAY FAST. This fast is followed by 3 days of eating liver loving and colon-caring foods to flush the remaining toxins from your system, as well as consuming foods rich in probiotics to restore the health of the gut.

Stage one (6 days) – preparation stage
Basically you have to eat every day food out of each category
A LIVER-LOVING AND LIVER-HEALING FOODS – AT LEAST ONE from each category
1. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, alfalfa.
2. Parsley, kale, watercress, chard, coriander, beetroot tops, collards, endive, mustard greens.
3. 1 Orange or juice of ½ fresh lemon or lime
4. Garlic, onion, 2 x eggs radish
5. artichokes (or 4 artichoke hearts), asparagus, beetroot, celery, dandelion root tea, whey.
B COLON-CARING FOODS – AT LEAST TWO from this category
1. Powdered psyllium husks (2 teaspoon in glass water), milled flax seeds(3 tablespoons), carrot apple, pear, berries.
C WATER – 8 glasses per day of pure filtered water (NOT bottled or tap water)
D PROTEIN – At least 2 servings of ORGANIC MEAT -ostrich, skinned
chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, fish.
OR if you are a vegetarian 2 Tbsp of Blue-green algae or spirulina.
E OIL – either virgin pressed Olive oil or flaxseed oil. 2 tablespoons per day.

You are NOT ALLOWED the following detox detractors
FATS, no butter and never ever margarine, fried foods or processed foods
SUGAR and its relatives, not even honey or xylatol
ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
REFINED CARBOHYDRATES white flour and rice
GLUTEN , so no breads pastas, crackers, biscuits, cereals
SOYA of any kind except miso and tempe
ALCOHOL, CAFFEINE FIZZY DRINKS CHOCOLATE
MOULD found on over ripe fruit.

You will find that just the foods in this list are enough to give you 3 full meals a day, in fact I found I was eating more than usual. You can add your favourite foods if you like provided they are not in the detox detractor list. The best experience were the salads made from baby spinach leaves straight from our garden with celery, parsley, coriander, beetroot leaves, raw cauliflower and broccoli, asparagus etc. drizzled with olive oil infused with lots of crushed garlic and lemon juice. For meat I found ostrich and turkey best, as I felt they were the least polluted.

Stage 2 FAST TRACK ONE DAY DETOX DIET
Only liquid is consumed this day, no solids at all. and no supplements that day please.

1 Start the day with either 2 teaspoons psyllium husk in a glass of water or 3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds in a glass of water.
2 Drink a glass of MIRACLE JUICE (see below) alternating with a glass of WATER every hour of the day from 6 am to 10 pm (that means you drink about 4 litres that day)
3. Engage in only light exercise this day … a 20 minute walk or 10 mins on rebounder
4. Last glass of liquid should contain the psyllium husks or flaxseeds once again.

MIRACLE JUICE RECIPE
Mix 3 Tbsp unsweetened pure cranberry concentrate in 1.7 litre (3 pints) water. Bring this to the boil.
Add ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp ground ginger, 1.4 tsp ground nutmeg(all fresh if possible) and simmer for 20 minutes. Cool the liquid and
Add ¾ cup fresh orange juice, ¼ cup lemon juice, 1 tsp maple syrup (optional).

Stage 3 Last 3 days of diet … very important
Follow instruction for Stage 1. This stage is exactly as stage 1 with a few exceptions
1 Eat organic live culture yoghurt and/or take a good probiotic formula … this is to restore the friendly gut bacteria twice during the day
2. On day 2 and 3 of this stage, take 1 tablet of HCl (500mg betaine hydrochloride with Pepsin).before each meal.

Thereafter, remember how well you felt eating these liver-loving and colon-cleansing foods, and change the way you eat forever ! Never go back onto the junk food, avoid toxins and eat organic. This will ensure a state on continued good health.

Detox with Coffee Enemas
This is a great way to detox after a rich meal, over indulgence of any kind or if you are feeling nauseous.  It is practiced in many cancer clinics around the world in the holistic treatment of cancer.
It is easy to do, and provided you have a good kit, you should manage fine on your own.

ONLY USE FRESH ORGANIC COFFEE.  Prepare it as though you were going to drink one cup of cpoffee.  Dilute it with previously boiled water to make 1Litre.  It should be body temperature when inserted.

Try to hold the coffee in the bowel for as long as you can manage.  This removes the toxins effectively from the hepatic portal vein.
Instant relief can be experienced
