Maximum Health: Everything is pink, but should it be?

By Rosie Main

 

Everything is pink — from shoes, shirts, hats, purses and even grade school kids' uniforms playing on the football field.

Why have billions, and possibly trillions, of dollars been donated to cancer research and still cancer statistics are getting worse and more people are dying of cancer every day?

We can put a man on the moon and time it perfectly. We can understand quantum physics. Do you really think cancer is harder to figure out than that? It's NOT!

But conventional medicine is no closer to a “cure” than they were 40 years ago. Because they are focused on the wrong thing.

The cancer/tumor isn’t the main issue; the internal environment of the body is. They can keep studying the cancer/tumor as much as they want, but if their approach does not take the entire body function into consideration, they will keep coming up with treatments that target just the cancer/tumor, which is the symptom — it's secondary to thesick body.

Remember, cancer doesn’t make you sick; a sick body over time causes cancer. If you just get rid of the cancer, even naturally, you're still left with the same sick body that caused cancer. That is why the only cure is getting to the cause and getting the body backto health.

If they want a different result, they are going to have to change their ideas about cancer. Albert Einstein once said, “You can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking that existed when the problem was created.”

Trying to solve cancer by injecting more toxins or pouring more money into making more toxic drugs is not the answer. You can't grow health through medications or surgery. You have to create health from within and remove the interference that created the problem in the first place.

You can’t find something if you're not looking for it.

There’s an overwhelming amount of evidence showing the lifestyle­cancer link. In fact, there is no un­linking the two. Despite this proof, a recent study by the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) revealed that nearly half of Americans believe there’s almost nothing they can do proactively to avoid cancer.

• 49 percent were aware that diets low in fruits and vegetables increase cancer risk.

• 46 percent cited obesity as a risk factor for cancer.

• 37 percent knew of alcohol’s link to cancer.

• 36 percent were aware of the link between diets high in red meat (which we have shown is due to commercial or processed meat and not meat fed and raised naturally) and cancer.

The side effect to this misinformation was revealed in a poll that showed over 40 percent of women believed they will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. This is well over three times the actual number for this diagnosis. This level ofpessimism about the future is really disturbing. It reveals that people feel victimized by this condition rather than believing they can do something to avoid having cancer.

There are 5 Essentials of Maximized Living, all of which have been proven to improve immunity — which is the key factor in preventing or overcoming cancer. Studies show that an astonishing one­third of cancers worldwide could be wiped out through just two of these essentials: diet and exercise.

Excess weight, lack of physical activity, consumption of alcohol, and a diet devoid of plant foods are all tightly connected to cancer. If one­third of cancers can be eliminated by only living those 2 of the 5 Essentials, imagine how well you'd improve your chances if you lived all 5. Along with diet and exercise, you also need: a maximized mind, a maximized nerve supply, and minimized toxins. The following paragraphs include more information on those 3 Essentials.

Mind: There is really no end to the damaging effects of stress hormones. Many of the deleterious effects that these hormones can cause when they reach unhealthy levels directly or indirectly lead to diseases such as cancer.  Evidence shows that stress can actually increase a tumor’s ability to grow and spread (www.cancer.gov). In fact, women undergoing treatment for breast cancer had improved survival rates when there was a reduction in stress hormones.

Nerve supply: There is compelling evidence on spinal care, the immune response, and cancer. Researchers have known for a long time that there is a critical link between the body’s central nervous system and the immune system.

Toxins: Toxins are as sneaky as they are ubiquitous and deadly. For example, fruits and vegetables are healthy, right? Not necessarily, not if they’re wrapped in plastic as virtually everything is nowadays. Each day we eat so many foods that come in contact with plastics and phthalate, a substance added to plastic to make it more flexible. The government has actually established an average daily amount that we can safely ingest before increasing our risk of disease. Therefore, we can be drinking water instead of sodalike we’re supposed to in order to avoid sugar — another cancer causer — but if that water is in a plastic bottle, you expose yourself to high levels of phthalates and other chemicals.

Plastics damage hormone receptors, hurt sex drive, cause fatigue, harm brain chemistry, accumulate in organs, and lead to illness. They’ve been specifically linked to cancers of the prostate, breast, lung, and thyroid. Many plastics also contain BPA.

BPA has become extremely controversial and is illegal in some countries. Scientists are concerned that BPA, a xenoestrogen, is linked to certain types of cancer, lowered levels of testosterone, and other serious health effects, such as obesity, attention deficits, lowered sperm counts, and can cause early puberty onset. Problems can occur even at lowdoses.

To start maximizing your health no matter what, implement the 5 Essentials: 1) maximizing your mindset, 2) maximizing quality nerve supply, 3) maximizing nutrition (eating right), 4) maximizing optimum oxygen and lean muscle (through exercise), and 5)minimizing toxins. This is the way we can honor our temple for Him. God does not makejunk, and as it states in John 10:10 (NIV): “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

God wants to restore our health, and we must believe that greater is He who is in us than he who is in this world. Health comes from a body and spirit that trusts in His amazing power to heal and restore, and a willingness to take action.
