Modern medical training in the US and many other countries does not teach docs how to heal your body. It focuses, instead, on getting rid of symptoms with chemical pharmaceuticals. But, the symptoms are indicators of deeper problems that are never revealed or searched for since the symptom is simply covered up. So, because you never get to the heart of the problem, the problem continues to manifest and you just get sicker over time.

This is why the majority of the population thinks it is normal to get sick as we age. But the truth is: it is not normal to get sick any time during your life. And, as a result of all of this, we live far shorter lives than we should.

Heart Disease and Diabetes

The first and second causes of death in the US are heart disease and cancer but if you look more closely you will find that there is lots of evidence that both of these illnesses are caused by following the advice, taking the prescriptions and eating the diet that conventional physicians lead us to believe are healthy. In reality that advice is anything but healthy.

Case in point: According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. in his book  [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ES28TSQ” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”getwellpath-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]The End of Diabetes[/easyazon_link] (p. 34), 70% of Diabetes patients actually die of heart disease and strokes. Another study shows that 10% of people who die of heart disease are people who have undiagnosed Diabetes. So, that accounts for a very large percentage of all heart attacks and strokes. The #1 cause of death.

In [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ES28TSQ” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”getwellpath-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]The End of Diabetes[/easyazon_link] (p. 34), Dr. Fuhrman explains the downward spiral that is caused by following the mainstream treatment for Diabetes, leading to dependence on more prescription drugs, more weight gain and more complications as time goes on. Great book, by the way, that teaches how to heal Diabetes 2 and lower Diabetes 1 insulin needs.


As for cancer, you should be aware that the majority of folks undergoing conventional cancer treatments, do not survive. However, the medical community is very clever at covering their tracks in this regard. I’ll let you do your own homework here as there is a lot to cover but this article and website will get you started.

One thing I’ve learned for sure over my many years of study is that there are so many natural and very powerful ways to remove cancer from the body without surgery or invasive chemotherapy or radiation. However, until recently they have been suppressed and most people don’t believe it so they dismiss them.

One of the simplest and fastest healing modalities is to raise the pH of the body. Cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment. In fact, many other diseases also cannot exist in a healthy pH balanced body so optimum pH is a must if you want to remain healthy. This is a very simple thing to do and I’ve heard many stories of cancer survivors that were given a conventional death sentence but survive today because they employed this simple healing technique.

3rd Leading Cause of Death is Conventional Medicine

In 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study showing that medical care is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Do you still want to reach out to a conventional doctor for help? Or go to a hospital? Do you really think that choosing a practitioner that works within the realm of the first three leading causes of death is a good answer to resolving your health problem?

When my father was sick with Emphysema he called me on a Friday to tell me how sick he was and that if he was still sick on Monday he would go to the hospital. When I asked why he hadn’t already gone, he said “Because I don’t want to die!” He knew that his chances were better at home than in the hospital.

There is a wave sweeping the world that focuses on becoming healthy through good nutrition but conventional medicine has, somehow, missed the boat. Just visit any hospital cafeteria and you’ll likely see that they are still serving the unhealthy foods including cookies and sugar coated doughnuts they’ve been serving for years. There are some exceptions to this but they are far and few in between. What we put in our bodies is extremely important to the state of our health. But doctors are not trained much, if at all, about nutrition, which is the most important part of the “healthy” equation.

Side Effects of Pharmaceutical Medicine

Additionally, we’ve been hypnotized into ignoring all of the side-effects that come along with taking prescription drugs. I remember an experience I had about 23 years ago when I was still using mainstream doctors for my health care that amplifies this.

I was prescribed 800mg of Ibuprofen (before it was available over-the-counter) per day for back pain. After some time, I started to have horrible stomach cramping, primarily after my evening meal. It was so bad that I would go into a back office where I worked and lay on the floor in excruciating pain for about 45 minutes every evening after eating.

I went back to the doctor and they could not figure out what was wrong and just said that I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I guess they didn’t check the side-effects of the drug they had prescribed to me because it was certainly there when I finally did. Anyway, I continued taking Ibuprofen, not realizing it was the cause of my cramping and pain. I took it for about a year. Then in December, I ran out during the Christmas holiday and didn’t get it refilled for about a week. During that week, I had no more cramping! And, I never took it again.

This is significant because many of you may have had similar experiences. I now know that IBS leads to Leaky Gut Syndrome which leads to Autoimmune disease. I now have two autoimmune diseases and I will have them the rest of my life. They are very difficult to cope with and my life will never be the same. I hope you see my point about side effects.

Removing Necessary Organs

Conventional surgery often removes necessary body parts that can likely be healed instead. The prime example I will use here is the gall bladder (although that’s just one of many I can think of). As we age and continue eating a poor diet, calcification can clog up the gall bladder with stones. Conventional medicine does not know how to dissolve those stones and start healing the gall bladder. So, instead, they remove the gall bladder creating a lifelong issue with digestion, putting unnecessary stress on the liver and making it necessary for you to depend on prescriptions or over-the-counter products for the rest of your life. I had stuck stones about a year ago but I stayed home and took care of it myself. It’s not rocket science either. Very simple to do.

Let’s recap the 7 reasons you should avoid conventional health care:

  1. Conventional medical advice regarding healthy food, prescription drugs and cancer therapy are likely responsible for the #1 and #2 causes of death.
  2. Conventional medical care is the #3 leading cause of death.
  3. Conventional doctors don’t know how to heal your body. They simply suppress the onset of disease leading to more disease.
  4. Conventional doctors do not learn about or address healthy nutrition.
  5. Prescription drugs have dangerous side effects that can lead to disease, suffering and even death.
  6. Conventional surgery often removes necessary body parts rather than attempting to heal them first.
  7. Conventional medicine never addresses the natural healing modalities that work to heal cancer and other disease without side effects.

So, how do you find someone that can help you. I mean really help you get back to healthy?

Well, first, thank heavens that we have the Internet. Because that is where you can begin your search.

You may choose to hire a modern health coach that can teach you how to heal your body. There is also a new type of medicine being practiced called Functional Medicine.
