Prevent Disease By Thinking Differently Than Experts


Did you know that all physicians and medical researchers have been indoctrinated with a flawed model of thinking dating to the 17th century?

These "experts" cling to a Cartesian model of thinking.

Cartesian refers to the philosopher Descartes who declared, "I do not recognize any difference between the machines made by craftsmen and various bodies nature alone composes."

All scientists, whether they were physicists, botanists, or zoologists, soon adopted his concept that the subject of their study was a machine.

Over time, however, every science but one opted out of that belief. The mechanistic, reductionist, biomedical model of health followed by our doctors and medical scientists still assumes our body functions like a machine.

This antiquated theory says our body consists of a fixed number of parts working together like a clock. Disease results from their breakdown, and repair of the machine depends on a doctor's intervention.

Intervention comes in three forms: Repair by surgery, treatment with drugs, or the replacement of defective parts.

Nowadays the smallest defective parts are presumed to be genes, human disease genes, found in our cells.

Are you comfortable with the premise that a single human cell measuring 1/1000 of an inch across, containing instructions within its DNA that would fill 1,000 books of 600 pages each, is but part of a machine?

A life systems model of thinking provides a much better under- standing of health and the prevention of disease.

All life forms are comprised of layers or tiers. Genes are imbedded in chromosomes. We find the chromosomes in the nucleus and the nucleus in the cell. The cell resides in an organ and the organ functions within organ systems.

All these levels are dynamic, participating in mutual inter- actions that influence the health of each organism. They are not static parts of a machine, independent from nature.

For more than four million years, beginning when our ancestors first stood erect, we have had a partnership with nature.

The success of this partnership, reflected in our individual health, has much to do with nutrients derived from the exterior environment in the food we eat and the water we drink.

All life forms require minerals from the external environment to regulate the metabolic enzymes that run their internal environ- ment.

When we consume food and water deficient in minerals, our metabolic enzyme systems break down. That's when we lose immunity to degenerative disease.

Getting a handle on where health comes from and how to prevent disease sure beats repair by surgery, treatment with drugs, or the replacement of defective parts.
