“Reclaim Your Inner Terrain”……Choose Life!
The last post on this blog shared the “Cycle of Imbalance” (or Unhealthy State) as written by Dr. Robert O. Young PhD, D.Sc in his book, “Are You Sick and Tired? Reclaim Your Inner Terrain”. I promised a subsequent post bringing you the “Cycle of Balance” or “Healthy State” or, as Dr. C Samuel West termed it, “The Dry State”. Dr. West termed the Imbalance to be the “wet state”. [See the April 2013 series of posts on this blog entitled “Cancer: Why Does it Happen ? (or What Causes It?) and What can We Do About it?
On page 17 of his book, Dr. Young says, “In the past hundred years or so, scientific medicine has determined what it thinks are the causes of some “diseases.” But many serious ones are still a mystery. More recent research now suggests what is behind most, if not all, symptom pictures. The answer lies in the condition of your terrain. Is it in balance?
[Personal note: The word,“terrain”, is used by Young to mean” internal environment”. Personally, when I realized I still had spots on lungs and liver after having 2/3 pancreas removed along with considerable surrounding tissue and understanding that chemo and/or radiation wouldn’t help me, my only chance to live (without a miracle) seemed to be to make my body an environment in which cancer could not live. So I set that goal and pursued a spiritual, nutritional, emotional lifestyle that God’s Word as well as honest science validates. I believe my own story testifies to much of what Dr. Young and many earlier medical pioneers teach.
Dr. Young continues, “As noted previously, in pH imbalance (acid/alkaline imbalance), body tissues are on the acid side. In the early stages of imbalance, the outer symptoms may not be very intense and are frequently treated (manipulated) with drugs. They include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds and flu, and sinus problems. As things get further out of whack, more serious situations arise. Weakened organs and systems start to give way–thyroid, adrenals, the liver, etc.
Unfortunately, symptom manipulation plays a major role in creating worse symptoms later.” [Note: It is a proven and accepted fact that cancer requires an acidic body chemistry or “inner terrain” to exist. The acid/alkaline balance is a life or death issue. There is a very small tolerance for imbalance in the blood and a body will “steal” bone and tissue minerals to keep the blood slightly alkaline. Cells cannot function without proper minerals as we mentioned in earlier posts (April 2013).]
CYCLE OF BALANCE (or Healthy State)
Eliminate acid waste through superhydration, green drinks, green foods. It takes 20 parts alkalinity to neutralize 1 part acid.
Dr. Young recommends a 7-10 day cleanse. [my note: My body cleansed over a period of 2 weeks when I began to drink plenty
of purified water all day long and I ate only vegetables (mostly raw)
berries, nuts, and began taking Barley Power Tablets (7 tablets 4 x daily). I was not particularly uncomfortable but I know I “threw off”
a lot of debris from toxin/tissue interaction.
- TAKE CONTROL:
Break pattern of negative disturbing impressions–those things that
irritate and disturb cells like:
-prescription and/or recreational drugs
(obviously work with a health care professional on this)
-negative thoughts, words and deeds
Provide the vital material the body needs to construct new and healthy cells. We all need a good “WOMAN”
-Alkaline diet and lifestyle
-Proper Nutritional Supplements (my note: be careful about
supplements–I make certain anything I take is pure food and
not a man-made version of a natural vitamin or a rock mineral.
It’s a good idea to consult with a trained nutritionist which is
not the same thing as a dietitian. Classically trained medical
professionals generally do NOT get much training in nutrition.
In the Cycle of Balance the signs of health are reflected: energy and vitality; clear, bright eyes; mental clarity and concentration; and a lean, trim body.”
Break the mindset that disease is imposed upon you from the “outside” and think of it as the consequence of imbalance. (Young p 18) This is not a new concept but a summary of the work of many medical geniuses including Robert Virchow, Claude Bernard, Antoine BeChamp, Gunther Enderlein, Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, Gaston Naessens. Louis Pasteur who “invented” the “germ theory” is reported to have said on his deathbed, “Claude Bernard was right. It is not the microbes. It is the terrain.”
We will be posting more on the Imbalance/Balance Cycles…..but understand that the basic concept is that “Health is the best preventative medicine and Health is the best curative medicine.” By that I mean–feed your body what our Creator gave us to eat in a form as close as possible to the way He made it and keep the body clean and toxin free–that is free of man-made chemicals (which includes most “prepared foods”). Additionally, understand what the prophet Hosea said: “…my people perish for lack of knowledge”…….God wants us well and in health. His Word is truth and it never conflicts with honest science. Proverbs reminds us “For as a man thinks, so is he.” and that means spiritually and physically. Toxic thoughts and words are lethal.
This is all good news! It’s not a government healthcare plan we must rely on…..It is a divine healthcare plan we can rely on. It’s not an industry we must rely on……it’s God’s economy we can rely on. We have a more excellent way to be in health and it’s rooted in TRUTH.
Our next post will talk more about divine health.
