Dr. Michael Greger, Director of Public Health for the US Humane Society and founder of NutritionFacts.org is now touring the country giving the above lecture entitled “Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death.” He and his team have collected and examined all the published and peer reviewed medical literature (including controls and double-blind studies) pertaining to the top 15 causes of death among Americans. Amazingly Dr. Greger’s team found that a simple change in diet prevented, and also usually reversed, 14 of them! The only cause of death unaffected by this dietary change was “accidental death,” which by definition is impossible to prevent anyway. So what is this simple dietary change which can prevent and even reverse the leading causes of premature death!? Eliminate all animal products and consume only plant, or “vegan”, foods. It’s that simple.
Dr. Robert Morse is an American naturopathic who has been practicing for almost 40 years and has cured over 100,000 people of every disease imaginable using simple detoxification methods and a Raw Vegan diet. Whether it’s Diabetes, Candida, Kidney Stones, Fibromyalgia, Lupis, Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue, Autism, MS, Parkinsons, HIV/AIDS, Insomnia, Migraines, Heart Conditions, or Cancer, no matter the ailment, Dr. Morse is confident that the human body has the ability to completely regenerate and heal itself. See “Who is Dr. Morse” above and parts 2 and 3 here.
If given the opportunity, through fasting, cleansing, detoxing, and raw living foods, the human body can and will regenerate and rebuild at the cellular level. However, most people eat acidic meals 3 times a day every day and have never fasted or detoxed even once in their lives. This is equivalent to perpetually running a complex machine 24/7 for years and expecting it never to break down. But over time pipes get clogged, waste backs up, wear and tear take their toll, and the machine ultimately overheats and fails. Only then can repairmen come in, fix the pipes, remove the excess waste, and repair the damage done. It is exactly the same with the human body and our repairmen (self-regenerating cells/tissue) can only clean out and fix the machine when it’s turned off. Fasting gives your internal organs the break they need to repair the damage of overuse. See “Detoxification The Art & Science” above and parts 2, 3, 4, and 5 here.
What allopathic doctors refer to as “diseases,” Dr. Morse suggests could be more accurately termed “healing crises.” The allopathic model merely lumps together a bunch of symptoms, gives them a name based on what part of the body they affect, then offers you unnecessary pills, vaccinations, radiation and surgeries that ultimately do more harm than good. Dr. Morse insists in his book “Illusion of Disease” that all these various medical diagnoses are misnomers which complicate the issue and disempower the patients:
“Medical Doctors simply fit a name to the respective symptom that occurs when acids damage the cells of the body (or set in motion an inflammatory response), and a symptom is experienced. Which is again simply: location, location, location! The location in the body = the name of the symptom … The concept of diseases is ridiculous! It is fostered by the Pharmaceutical Companies. The concept of disease was perpetrated by the medical community to cast a ‘mystique’ over the general populous. Controlling man by fear, through the mystery of symptoms coming from the outside world. Setting themselves up as the potential ‘life savers’ with their bizarre chemical potions of pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy, radiation and radical surgeries. The ego, capitalism and totalitarianism consciousness has created a modality that can’t cure anything and conversely hurts and kills the largest number of humans ever seen. They are statistically and factually the largest killing machine of humans ever, including all the wars put together!” -Dr. Robert Morse
I hope everyone takes some time to listen to Dr. Morse and hear some of the incredible stories he has to share. He is a true healer, compassionate, knowledgeable, an amazing resource and inspiration for anyone suffering with health problems. I highly recommend browsing through his YouTube channel here. Below are some choice quotes taken from his book The Great Lymphatic System:
One must understand why man is seeing so little CURING of their ailments these days, by most of the so-called “Health” Care Systems that currently exist. This is especially true of the Allopathic. The answer is simple. The focus is on the symptoms – not the causes! You always hear about their potential cures of Diseases, but you never see it happen – and you won’t. When one focuses on ones’ symptoms with the illusionary concept of diseases in mind, then one will never find Health & Vitality. One will never find a cure for what does not exist!
Let’s look at the human body simplistically for a minute. No matter what part of the body one wishes to look at, be it the liver, kidneys, skin, bones, hair, finger nails, etc … all we are talking about are CELLS! The physical body is said to be made up of approximately 76 trillion cells. So no matter what group of cells called tissue (organs, glands, bones, etc.), the body is simply made up of a whole bunch of cells. Some are so small you can hardly see them. Others are as much as a foot long. So we can say the human body is simply a bunch of cells and two major fluids. Yes, we have a lot of chemistry in our physical bodies as well: minerals (especially calcium,) vitamins, toxins, microbes, e.g. janitorial bacterium, fungus, etc. But simply put: Our physical bodies are comprised of cells and two major fluids (blood and lymph).
Imagine for a minute that there’s only one God and God is all that exists. Wow! Imagine if you or I were the only thing that existed. This could be a little lonely and boring. I would want to experience other things and have endless experiences. To accomplish this I would need to create the illusion of separation from the one to the many, experienced through Duality. I would need to take my Energy and Intelligence (the One), and divide it into two opposite forces which is essential to have creation and it’s seemingly unlimited life forms. Opposites are essential to form action, travel and the like, called: matter, energy, space and time. With these two opposite forces, I now can create endless experiences of action and activity. But now instead of just love, I have its opposite: hate. Instead of just beauty, I now also have ugly. Good and bad, night and day, big and small, near and far, male and female … follow me so far? Don’t make it difficult. Like in Creation, life always has two sides to it, no matter what, unless you learn the trick of the NOW where there is no time. Where all things become ONE again.
The only reason I needed to cover this is to get to chemistry. Obviously all matter is nothing but chemistry and all of chemistry is just different frequencies of energy. And pure energy has been called God. In quantum physics, they now can prove energy has intelligence … So getting back to chemistry, all of chemistry, no matter what element, compound, or complex, has only two sides to it. Period! This world is simply chemistry (Energy) in motion! Again, understanding the nature of the two sides of chemistry is vital in understanding what damages or weakens your body, or more specifically, it’s cells (and what strengthens it). It is obvious that each side of chemistry is the opposite of each other in its actions. Understanding which side of chemistry damages the cells (tissues) of the body, and which side of chemistry repairs or regenerates the cells, is vital to understanding life and death.
For the sake of argument, lets give each side of chemistry a gender. Lets say that one side of chemistry is the male side, and the other side is the female side. One could say that the male side of chemistry is the aggressive side and the female side is the passive side. Males traditionally like to take things apart to see how they’re made, while females like to build nests or create things. So male chemistry breaks things down and female chemistry builds things up. The male side of chemistry leads to an endless array of negative symptoms that Allopathic Doctors call: “Diseases.” Before we go on, lets put the actual “names” that chemistry gives to these two sides of itself. The male side of chemistry is called acids. The female side of chemistry is known as the base side or alkaline side of chemistry.
We need some acids in life when aggressive activity is required. However, acids are generally the by-products of activity, e.g. metabolism, respiration, and most chemical activity in general. The body does produce a few acids e.g. for initial protein digestion and in some steroids; specifically estrogen & testosterone. However, obviously, the body also produces their alkaline neutralizer, as well. Acids require alkaline chemistry to neutralize them. One can see from the above how important it is that one’s diet must be predominantly alkaline in its chemistry or one becomes acidic. The importance of the body being predominantly alkaline is seen with the blood. Our blood must be alkaline (approximately 7.3-7.4) or death would be imminent, so when we eat acid forming foods, the blood must find (or steal) alkaline chemistry to keep its alkalinity or pH balance! This constituent is mainly calcium and the blood will steal it out of its own walls, hence spider or varicose veins. As said earlier, when acids begin to build up in our bodies, we begin to have symptoms.
Acids are generally cell by-products, which are dealt with through one’s lymphatic system. At first, simple stiffness, pain and swelling; then deeper problems affecting the function of the cells and tissues will begin. This in turn can affect hormone, steroid, and neurotransmitter production. Tissues can then become hyperactive at first but will always end up hypo-active, which is “under-active” tissue like hypothyroidism. Remember, acids will eventually break down cells, ending in cancer cells. During this process, the respective tissue fails to perform their functions. Remember, this is a simplistic overview. Always keep it simple.
Basically, proteins are acid forming, and carbohydrates are alkaline-forming. However, most grains are acidic in their digestive ash. Most fruits and vegetables are alkaline-forming and most proteins are acidic. Most grains are acid forming, as well as most beans. Raw dairy products are alkaline, but if they are pasteurized they become acidic. Please note that after age 2 or 3 a child cannot digest dairy products any more. He/she is supposed to be weaned! Young children can’t tolerate cows milk at all.
Remember that chemistry has only two sides to it. Basically, the Acid side can damage the cells and tissues of the body. The Alkaline side can rebuild the cells and tissues of the body. To put this all in context, we must look at man’s diet worldwide. Except for Islanders, man has developed a habit of eating high protein diets. Mostly 250 – 450 grams per day of protein. This includes meat or other types of protein at least two to three times per day. At this level of Acid consumption, colon and kidney damage is eminent! The news is always reporting on high protein diets and how it is related to the rise of colon cancer. However, Kidney damage also occurs! Both of these vital lymphatic eliminatory organs affect the efficiency of proper Lymphatic elimination (filtering). A client came to me the other day and she was peeing out parts of her bladder. Come to find out, she had been on the Atkins Diet for 5 years.
In review, the weakening of one’s Lymphatic elimination organs backs up this system, allowing for the retention of cellular wastes, which are acids. These acids create an Immune Response that we call Inflammation. Inflammation is a natural Immune response to what? Mostly acids (proteins). This begins the downhill functioning of the cells’ tissues, organs and glands of the body. This in turn, affects things like sugar metabolism, nerve function, joint function, creates tumors & the formation of cysts, and on and on and on.
The word infection is simply an accumulation of sewage in the body, blamed on the bacterium that is only trying to help you break this sewage down. This is how stupid man has gotten. Because of this stupidity, we have suppressed and toxified the body with pharmaceuticals. The side effects of pharmaceutical drugs are usually far worse than the original problem, not the least of which is breaking down your liver and kidney function! The use of antibiotics is another ‘killing machine,’ the use of which has killed thousands and damaged millions of people. Antibiotics break down the body’s Immune/ Lymphatic system to the point where it becomes so weak that man’s genetics have gotten to the Chronic and Degenerative Levels! Man is in such serious trouble in his health issues that no treatment-based system can even touch the problem! The Medical Community is way out of its league. One must learn the truth and how one regenerates their body (cells). The Medical Community generally uses Acids (except for normal saline solution) to treat an Acid Condition of the body. The Naturopathic Community uses Alkali’s to cure Acid Conditions of the body. Which one makes the most sense to you?
