A while back I posted a blog about a talk I did at a screening of Food Matters organised by Fitness Universal and the awesome charity Yes To Life. If you haven’t heard of Food Matters then you absolutely MUST watch this if you want to know the truth about food and the pharmas. I am a BIG BIG fan of Yes To Life charity. Not only is this charity helping people that are LIVING with cancer right here right now in this very moment but they take an integrative approach to cancer. (As opposed to some of the larger well-known cancer charities that seem to suck the eternal fundraising kitty dry with their research to find a cure that they have been on the brink of cracking for over 50 years! EHEM. Not naming any names of course! Whatever! I can’t wait around for that day and neither can you so listen up and get smart – yes I’m talking to YOU!)
DEFINITION OF INTEGRATIVE: Relating to a multidisciplinary, holistic approach to medicine that combines conventional treatments with alternative therapies such as homeopathy or naturopathy.
I don’t believe that one treatment for cancer fits all and I don’t believe that drugs are the solution. Drugs certainly have their place in medicine but do I think that drugs should be taken continuously day after day, year after year to “fix” a health problem? HELL NO!
So many people take pills to keep blood pressure low, to lessen arthritis, to prevent osteoporosis etc but when you stop and think about this it’s frickin scary that we have become a pill-popping society that think our health problems can be solved with a magic bullet. The last time I checked, you don’t take paracetemol for a headache because you have paracetemol deficiency! When you are ill you may experience some kind of symptom – something that is giving you a sign or a red flag. THAT is something within your body that is fundamentally off balance. Somethin’ ain’t right and a bottle of pills sure ain’t gonna fix it – at least not for the long-term and not without unknown side-effects or uncertainty of the potential to cause future ill-health as a by-product. The truth is we can never really know the real damage caused by drugs as they haven’t been around long enough. By the way did you know that 106,000 people in the US die every year from taking pharmaceutical drugs, AS PRESCRIBED by their DOCTOR? Yup. C’est vrai! (That’s french for “That’s true” by the way.)
So the moral of this story dearly loved readers is that health starts with looking after yourself, looking inward to your Divine self and asking what YOU can do to participate in your own health. If you have cancer then please know there is so much help and information out there for you and charities like Yes To Life are making it all available to you. By looking at ALL of your options, you arm yourself with knowledge and with knowledge comes POWER. If illness isn’t a concern of yours right now then I thank God for that but please don’t make it something you have to deal with in future by eating healthily, reducing stress from your life, juicing, and promoting an alkaline environment within your body. It’s up to you o’ gorgeous one! Check out Yes To Life’s latest newsletter below.
