Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

Does Disease Begin in the Colon?

Have you ever heard that "disease begins in the colon?"  If not, you're not alone.  The majority of adults, children and babies are seen by medical doctors when they are sick.  Unfortunately though, many medical doctors don't understand or believe that disease begins in the colon, but it's true (I found out that it's just not part of their curriculum in med school, how sad is that?).  And not only is it true, it makes perfect sense.

To put it very simply so that even a child can understand this before his or her mind is filled with misconceptions and yes, lies which get in the way of proper thinking (but that's another article for another time), the way that God created our bodies is that when we eat something, our body takes what it needs from the food to nourish our organs, veins, blood etc... and then eliminates the waste.  Simple, right?  So what happens when we eat food, the body takes what it needs (if it's available in the food - again another article for another time) but the waste is not eliminated?  Uh-oh!

This is where it gets ugly.  You continue to eat food but you are not eliminating!  So what happens to the waste?  It just sits in your colon and ferments, so to speak, not to mention it adds on unhealthy weight.  If this waste isn't eliminated for a period of time, bacteria will develop and grow and your problems are just beginning if you don't catch it in time.  

Sadly, constipation is very common.  Did you know that human beings should  eliminate three times a day?  About twenty to thirty minutes after a meal the waste from the previous meal should be pushed out (see peristalsis and catastalsis).  But for many, this isn't happening and constipation becomes the known problem.  But constipation isn't the problem just as much as cancer isn't the problem.  They are only symptoms of something that has gone wrong within.  So what's the reason why this happens?  Mainly because of a poor diet, not a lack of food, but the lack of a healthy diet.  

After my own personal experience, after all the research and after a drastic change in my own diet (along with a lot of praying and asking the Lord for direction) I'm convinced that it's true:  Disease begins in the colon.

The Beautiful Truth

Is there really a cure for cancer and other diseases?  Does mainstream medicine have all the answers?  Is the American Cancer Society really interested in finding a cure for cancer?

The Beautiful Truth is a “must see” documentary featuring a teenage boy who uncovers what lies beneath.

You don’t need to have an open mind. You just need to be willing to see the truth and accept it for what it really is.

Thank you, Rich for finding this movie!
