Statistics indicate that more than 80% of the North American population suffer from some form of degenerative dis-ease. Is it reasonable to assume that all or most of these dis-eases are genetic?
What would it mean for the next generation if that was true?
I have heard it mentioned that in the next generation, the majority of parents will outlive their children.
Why is there so much dis-ease? What can be done?
I’d like to put forth a theory. This particular theory comes from my own personal experience. I am not a doctor or a scientist. However, I am an avid student of the human experience, most specifically my own.
My theory suggests that we are seeing so much dis-ease today because over the last 50-60 years our physical bodies have been introduced to toxins that our bodies are simply not able to process. While our bodies are amazing machines and are constantly in a state of detoxification, when we continue to put more toxins onto and into our bodies than our bodies can get rid of, we find ourselves in a state of over-toxification. The moment this happens we have set our bodies up for a state of dis-ease. Bruce Fife, N.D. in his book, “The Detox Book” states that “The underlying cause for all dis-ease is malnutrition, toxic accumulation and stress.” After twelve months of cleansing and detoxification in an effort to prove this statement true, I can attest to its accuracy. However, I also believe that there is something missing in this formula.
Have you ever wondered by Joe gets cancer and Mark gets diabetes and Susan ends up with Rheumatoid Arthritis? My theory further suggests that while we may physically set our bodies up for dis-ease, that in many cases, how a dis-ease manifests is determined by our emotional and spiritual health.
I’ve talked to hundreds of people from all walks of life about this theory and I’ve yet to come across someone who disagrees. I find this fascinating, and yet, sadly, not surprising. What I find fascinating about it is that so many people are seemingly in agreement and yet we still have such an incredibly high incidence of dis-ease. Why is this not surprising? With more than 80% of the North American population considered overweight, we obviously not yet at the point where we’ve gotten ourselves sorted physically, let alone emotionally or spiritually.
I have witnessed people who have taken a spiritual journey and become physically healthy as a result. Conversely, I have witnessed people making themselves physically healthy and finding themselves spiritually as a result. There is an intricate balance between the two, however, the first step for either approach is awareness and commitment. Awareness through education and a commitment to oneself that “I am worth it”.
Enjoying the Journey! ~Trish
