|Rocky Point by Jacquie Woodward|
I just watched a DVD that included discussions by four prominent medical doctors, “The Miraculous Self-Healing Body” was the title and I purchased it from www.hacres.com. This DVD is not an infomercial attempting to sell some product or system. It is more like a documentary about the human immune system with a medical view of the impact of fueling the body properly to allow that immune system to do its job. There were several case histories shared and, as I watched, I realized I could have been one of them.
Sometimes information is so simple people find it hard to believe. We’ve been so bombarded with indoctrination that we all inevitably face “death by disease” and the only way to prolong life is by reacting to every symptom by running to the doctor for another prescription. We never give a thought to what gave us the symptom and how we might eliminate that symptom by taking charge of our own health and removing the cause of the “illness” or “discomfort”.
We do not have to die of disease. Before the Western diet became as rich as ancient and medieval royalty’s degenerative feasting, many of the diseases we know today such as heart disease, cancer, adult onset diabetes (type II), auto-immune diseases, etc. were uncommon to unheard of. In countries where such a rich diet is still not the norm, the incidence of such diseases is much lower then in “the America’s”.
Much is debated about “healthcare” and everyone’s right to it…..or not. There is great debate about who provides, who decided, who pays, who needs, who gets, who mandates, and on and on. This discussion is not about HEALTH care….it is about SICK care. When a society/culture has embraced the dogged insistence that putting over 100 pounds of refined sugar per year, over 100 pounds of meat (including steroids, antibiotics, etc) per year, copious amounts of rich dairy fat and protein, heavily treated water, MANufactured and processed foods containing cumulatively damaging man-made chemicals and almost no useful nutrition into their bodies is fine because it is convenient and tastes good, then SICK care dominates the conversation because nearly everyone is sick–or destined to become sick. SICK care generally leads to lots of expensive pharmaceuticals which all have many effects besides the ones desired–not side effects but additional effects that are just as strong as the desired effect.
Healthcare, on the other hand, is pretty much free. The medicine consists of food which you have to buy anyway–but you buy actual nutritious “live” food rather than “dead” disease causing food. Healthcare requires a decent pair of walking shoes and some time spent in the sunshine and fresh air. Healthcare requires learning to make some nice salads and soups and probably investing in a good blender and countertop water distiller. It does take a little time to chop up vegetables rather than opening a box of “Macaroni helper” or some such “convenience food” but not as long as the usual wait in a doctor’s office or hospital stay or “sick day”. By comparison to “sick care”, “Healthcare” is very economical in both time and money.
How can his be? Hippocrates said it well, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food”. He also said, “First do no harm”. Yes, everyone eventually dies but it doesn’t have to be from a disease….it can be, as the Bible says, at the fullness of our days. Eating all vegetables (85% raw), a little bit of fruit, pure water, and some nuts and seeds and exercising (walking is great) not only feeds the body for optimum energy but it keeps the body from disease because it supports a most amazing part of our creation–our immune systems.
Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, allergies, arthritis, and on and on can be avoided and reversed without chemotherapy, radiation, or even surgery in an astounding way through diet and lifestyle. The resulting energy and well being is indescribable.
Politicians are playing with “healthcare” insurance as though they have the wisdom and right to make choices that impact our health. They do not. WE HAVE THAT CHOICE. We have a freedom they cannot take from us–we can choose to eat, sleep, exercise, and avoid stresses that rob our immune systems of the fuel it needs to keep us healthy. Of course medical care is important for trauma from accidents or, perhaps, a surgical repair for something like a ruptured appendix. However, there is astounding evidence collected in over 1500 studies over the past few decades to indicate that we can live healthy if we live as taught in the Bible. Daniel Chapter One is simple instruction. Genesis 1:29 also teaches us among many other scriptural lessons.
I highly recommend you order a copy of the DVD, “The Miraculous Self Healing Body” from www.hacres.com and see what some unusually well-informed physicians have to say about nutrition. It is uncommon for a classically trained M.D. to share nutritional insight but some are researching for themselves what they did not learn in medical school. There is also a good FREE download on this hacres website called “Biblical Nutrition 101”. I had planned to write some of the same information before I discovered the “Hallelujah Acres” website and information. No need to re-invent the wheel. This site had done enormous work on the subject.
I think you will also find their cookbooks and “Food Show” DVD series very helpful. I’m finding the recipes to be really tasty and satisfying even though I was sure “85% raw” would be a huge challenge…..it is not. I might not be eating a full 85% raw but I’m close because I find their salads and soups phenomenal and great smoothies are really easy and fast. The thing is….eat this way and you are never sick. And the energy level is astounding. Once you experience feeling great again, you aren’t tempted to backslide. Who wants that sluggish, irritable, sleep deprived, acid reflux, allergy symptom, aches and pains, stiffness, etc etc etc again. I am totally off every prescription medication including one I was on since college in the 1960’s. I also don’t need eyeglasses any more. Suddenly 67 doesn’t feel very old at all.
We will need to keep watching the politicians, though. Some of the “statists” still want to control our food sources and big corporate farm/food producers do control the FDA including the “food pyramid” it publishes which has more to do with promoting products than promoting health. Meat and dairy are ……well, get the DVD I mentioned above and learn for yourself. You need to know what this DVD teaches about protein.
