The essence of disease
by Hesh Goldstein
(NaturalNews) The natural healing approach to curing health related issues is always in the
direction of self-cleansing, self-repairing, and positive health. This philosophy maintains that even
acute disease is a manifestation of the bodys efforts in the direction of self-cure.
!isease, or downgraded health, may be eliminated only by removing from the system the real
cause and by raising the bodys general vitality so that its natural and inherent ability to sustain
health is allowed to dominate.
"o, a #uestion arises$ if all disease is a self-repairing effort aimed toward health, then why bother
to treat disease at all% &hy not 'ust lie bac( and wait for our pneumonia, ulcer, heart disease, or
arthritis to simply go away% The obvious answer, according to common sense, is that 'ust aint
gonna happen.
The general flow of lifes energies is in the direction of positive health. )ut, if that flow is hindered
or obstructed in any way, the outcome stands a good chance of being less than perfect.
&hen we tal( about health, we are tal(ing about the normal and harmonious interaction of the
elements and forces that ma(e up the human being on the physical, mental, and emotional
planes, in conformity with the fact that every living cell in an organi*ed body is endowed with an
instinct of self preservation. +n other words, the general flow of lifes energies is in the direction of
positive health.
"o, disease then, is an abnormal or inharmonious interaction of the elements and forces that
ma(e up the human entity. +n the perfectly normal individual, if all aspects of life were (ept in
harmony, the body would live forever. )ut the ordinary individual is constantly being sub'ected to
influences that upset his or her inner balance.
Normal internal and e,ternal changes in the physical environment are easily compensated for
because the body is e#uipped with sophisticated defense mechanisms that have evolved over ions.
-s such, it is designed to maintain a healthy internal environment and can protect itself from
reasonable adversities.
.nfortunately, modern humanity can no longer be considered either normal or ordinary, as nearly
every aspect of modern living causes disharmony on all levels of our e,istence. +n the blin( of an
eye, we are e,posed to radical changes, internally and e,ternally, to our environment.
The physical body, designed for and re#uiring demanding physical e,ercise for its optimum
functioning, now does stuff that never brea(s a sweat. /ur diet, which used to be one of whole,
unrefined grains, nuts, raw fruits, fresh vegetables, simple proteins, and pure water, is now made
up of refined, devitali*ed grains, highly salted nuts, fro*en, canned, or poisoned fruits and
vegetables, comple, protein meals poisoned by all sorts of drugs, chemicals, and growth
hormones, and harmful li#uids li(e coffee, tea, soda, fluoride, and alcohol. 0ven the air, with its
chemtrails and to,ic emissions, is no longer pure. +ts no wonder that the body reaches a point
when it can no longer safely deal with this vast array of poisons.
1ental and emotional stresses have increased rapidly as well, such as employer-employee
relationships, divorce, peer pressure, children being bullied, and on and on and on, causing the
body reach a point of no return.
/ur saving grace is that we are e#uipped with various mechanisms, which clear the body of a
normal amount of unneeded, unwanted, or to,ic substances. )ut if those channels are clogged,
overburdened, or suppressed, harmony can no longer be maintained and disease results. 0ven so,
this disease is still an activity designed to create balance or harmony.
"o, with disease being the result of a healing effort of nature to create balance, it is fundamental
to better understand and appreciate basic causes of disease.
-ccumulation of to,ic material within the body due to improper diet, poor circulation, poor
eliminations, and lac( of demanding e,ercise is a ma'or factor in almost all disease. &hile it is
ac(nowledged that other causes do e,ist, most factors that predispose to disease result in
accumulation of poisonous substances in the body which, when the channels of elimination cannot
ade#uately do their 'ob, will invariably initiate a disease process ultimately leading to changes
within the cell and eventually the whole body.
+ncorrect or unbalanced diets lead to reduced vitality, nutritional deficiency, to,emia, poor
eliminations, and local tissue degeneration. 1odern food processing and refining and the thrusting
upon us of G1/s, leads to an unbalanced, low-fiber, unnatural diet which drastically decreases the
nutrient value of food. High-yield fertili*er usage upsets the natural balance of the soil, depletes
the essential mineral sulfur, and produces nutritionally inferior and deficient food. 2esticides and
additives place a further burden on the body to deto,ify unwanted and poisonous substances,
causing improper diet to be a ma'or cause of nearly all forms of disease.
+mproper posture and body mechanics, due to habit, poor muscle tone, accident, or in'ury, may
interfere with normal nervous activity or the circulation of blood and lymph, leading to tissue
degeneration and defective function. -s the normal curves of the spine are altered by wea(
abdominal muscles, high heels, spinal trauma, or poor body mechanics in sitting or standing, the
normal relationship of internal organs and their nervous, blood, and lymph supply, and
conse#uently their nutrition, are severely affected. These changes may lead to poor local nutrition,
reduced drainage, and reduced tissue vitality. The end result is congestion, to,ic accumulation,
and disease.
!estructive emotions such as fear, an,iety, hate, self-pity, resentment, lac( of tolerance, lac( of
forgiveness, envy, impatience, and greed can affect the body by upsetting digestion, blood flow,
hormone balance, and the general biochemistry of the entire body. 2sychological causes of disease
are increasing as society places greater pressures on the individual.
The administration of suppressive drugs and vaccines, which inhibit the eliminative efforts of the
body and place further demands on it for drug deto,ification, are a ma'or cause of disease. 1any
drugs, and vaccines, in particular, can cause allergic reactions, chronic allergies, and other long-
term health problems. The incidence of drug-induced illness is ever upon us, especially in older
age groups where multiple prescriptions cause to,ic interactions.
0,cessive use of alcohol, coffee, and tobacco are serious health threats. These social drugs,
although widely accepted and used, are ma'or factors in many disease processes. They can
severely damage the liver, lungs, pancreas, thyroid, adrenal glands, and other parts of the body
and mind.
0nvironmental causes of disease are too difficult to avoid. The air, water, and soil have become
susceptible to pollution as population increases and we continue to treat the earth without proper
respect.
/ccupational ha*ards also help cause disease. 3hemical contact and poor air #uality are common
factors in downgraded health. "ome substances that have been around for years, li(e asbestos,
are e,tremely to,ic and pose a severe health ris(. &or(-related stress may be the greatest cause
of illness among wor(ers.
3ertain inherited factors or tendencies, congenital predisposition, or abnormalities may also leave
an individual more susceptible to disease or unstable conditions. /ften, however, these
wea(nesses only manifest when the body comes under stress from one or more of the other
causes of disease above.
2arasitic, virus, or germ infection is not a primary cause of disease but rather its result. 0ven
2asteur, the recogni*ed father of germ theory, began to understand the true relationship of germs
to disease late in his life when he said, 4The germ is nothing, the soil is everything,4 meaning that
a germ can only thrive in a suitable environment. The body normally is hosting to millions of
microorganisms, some beneficial, others harmful. +f harmful bacteria are allowed to multiply, then
typical symptoms of disease result.
+n a healthy body several factors can (eep harmful bacteria from gaining a strong foothold. The
normal healthy bacterial flora in the digestive tract and vagina prevent others from proliferating.
The bodys secretions also act to prevent bacterial infection by their pH (acidity or al(alinity) and
their other #ualities. 1any mucous membranes are lined with tiny cilia, or hairs, that constantly
move debris and bacteria toward the nearest e,it. Glandular structures such as the tonsils are
designed to screen foreign matter from the air, and internally from the circulation. /ther glands
perform a similar process throughout the entire lymphatic circulation, which filters the bodys
internal fluids. 5oreign invaders that do manage to brea( through the bodys first line of defenses
are attac(ed by antibodies, consumed by white blood cells, and either digested or removed from
the body.
-s you can see the body is well protected. /nly when defenses are wea(ened can harmful bacteria
ta(e hold. &hen one or more of the causative factors predisposing to disease are present, the
body is forced to fight li(e hell to reestablish proper e#uilibrium. Those various avenues of action
by the body to free itself of those burdens are as follows$
5ever increases the bodys metabolic rate and circulation of blood and lymph, speeding the
removal of to,ins from the body, and sending nutrition to diseased areas. The increased
circulation also acts as a carrier for the bodys more complicated defenses such as white blood
cells and antibodies. 5ever also creates a less favorable environment for either bacteria or viruses,
which generally have a very narrow temperature range for optimal growth. -s fever increases,
these organisms begin to die faster then they can reproduce. Hippocrates said, 4Give me fever
and + will cure any disease.4
"weating carries to,ins out of the system through the s(in. +t also helps (eep the rising
temperature within a range that will not endanger the long-term health of the body.
1ucous secretions also remove to,ic material from the body. 3ells of some mucous membranes
protect against invasion by the action of the tiny cilia that move particles of foreign matter and
debris toward the nearest outlet. 0,ternal irritants, bacteria, viruses, or internal to,ins stimulate
these cilia.
+nflammation, swelling, and edema are actions by the body to locali*e a problem. +nflammation
indicates a local increase in metabolic activity with increased blood and lymph supply, and an
increased capillary supply to aid in transport of blood-borne defenses. 0dema, or fluid
accumulation, aids in diluting an undesirable, to,ic, or irritating substance.
6ocal infection results from a brea(down of vital tissues into waste matter, which then provides a
suitable environment for bacterial spread until the bodys forces can remove the waste material.
The reduced vitality occurs first, the infection is secondary. )oils, acne, and other local infections
may also be the result of an inner cleansing process.
!iarrhea and vomiting are obvious attempts by the body to rid itself of to,ic substances. 6ocal
irritants may initiate this action, as will systemic to,ins.
2ain is a natural mechanism by which the body draws attention to a problem area. 2ain indicates
that the malfunction can no longer be tolerated and that further persistent pain may result in
severe in'ury.
"nee*ing and coughing are serious attempts by the body to rid the respiratory system of irritants
and to,ins. The coughing up of mucous can reduce the spread of infection my preventing dead
matter from stagnating, and also can help prevent bloc(age of smaller respiratory passageways.
"nee*ing effectively rids the upper respiratory passages or particle and irritants.
This entire article is to provide information regarding an innate intelligence by the body to
reestablish e#uilibrium and positive health. -s such they are corrective and eliminative and should
not be suppressed. &hat is commonly called acute disease is really the result of natures efforts to
eliminate waste matter or poisons from the body and to repair in'ured tissues. +f the acute
condition is not allowed to run its natural course, or is treated with suppressive methods and not
allowed to fulfill its intended function of elimination, hello chronic disease. -nd believe me, that
aint a good thing.
/ne final word$ in this 'oyous season of 3hanu(ah and 3hristmas + would li(e to e,tend my hope
to you all to reali*e some 'oy and happiness in your lives and your loved ones. + hope you all will
embrace the coming year with a feeling of positive health choices. There are people out there who
care little for your health but a great deal about the money you have to spend. 2lease ta(e
responsibility for your own health and eat to live, not live to eat.
