We do use Lifestyle Therapy
Lifestyle therapies include proper nutrition, stress management, regular physical activity and maintaining
a healthy body fat to lean tissue weight are key elements in the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases. Biochemicals,
Hormones, Neurotransmitters, Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke and dementia are all strongly influenced by fine tuning
diet with plenty of non-processed foods and taking advantage of regular moderate physical activity. Once referred to as alternative
medicine, health conscious individuals now embrace a natural lifestyle approach to health maintenance. Important research
confirms that following four simple behavior patterns can help prevent chronic disease development and progression by more
Lifestyle Therapy Proven Effective in Chronic Disease Treatment and Prevention
minded individuals are opting for lifestyle interventions to treat and control chronic disease. Big Pharma alternatives promote
existing disease, and they all have side effects that can be more severe than the symptoms they are supposed to mask. The
results of the EPIC study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine show that adherence to four simple lifestyle
pillars can dramatically lower the risk from virtually every major chronic illness.
This significant study followed
23,000 people for nearly 8 years and examined smoking behavior, food consumption, exercise and maintenance of a healthy weight.
The researchers found that those participants who didn't smoke, consumed a diet high in fresh vegetables and low in meat,
exercised at least 3.5 hours per week and maintained a normal weight (BMI less than 30) reduced their risk of developing diabetes
by 93%. Heart attack risk was reduced by 81%; stroke risk was cut in half and 36% of all cancers were prevented. Allopathic
interventions only perpetuate chronic disease and are ineffective at reducing disease risk.
Allopathic Statin Therapy Increases Diabetes Risk
Many traditional physicians hand out statins as if they were
candy and some even joke that this Big Pharma sanctioned form of poisoning should be added to our public water supply. Statins
are known to cause a wide variety of side effects. Muscle deterioration and cognitive decline are two of the most commonly
reported detrimental effects that result from the unnatural suppression of cholesterol from long term statin therapy.
The results of research published in the Journal of the American Medical Associationshow how using a dietary approach
including fiber, almonds and natural plant sterols can lower cholesterol as much as dangerous statins. Another side effect
of statin therapy is increased levels of insulin. Following a natural diet protocol does not raise insulin and has been shown
to lower blood pressure, increase HDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides and alter the ratio of atherogenic dense LDL particles
toward the harmless large buoyant variety.
American Life Expectancy Drops, Lifestyle Therapies Needed
Americans have enjoyed a steady increase in life expectancy over the past century. A report from the CDC now indicates that
this trend may have finally come to an end as more people suffer the effects of poor diet, decreased physical fitness and
obesity. Despite a never ending supply of pharmaceuticals prescribed by medical professionals, lifestyle disease such as Alzheimer`s,
kidney disease and hypertension experienced a marked increase. Following a natural lifestyle approach as detailed in the EPIC
study would dramatically increase life expectancy.
The importance of following a natural lifestyle cannot be underestimated
and is a powerful tool to prevent chronic disease. Pharmaceuticals such as statins are ineffective and are known to affect
insulin levels that can lead to the development of diabetes. Lifestyle therapies have been repeatedly shown to cut disease
risk and extend healthy lifespan.
