Your health (target locked on)
"Big" diseases such as AIDS are grabbing the headlines. They are also big business out there,and I can tell you that the diseases we read or hear about, terrible though they may be, are only the tip of the iceberg.
This is the year 1999 figures for the United States of America, alone.
1.Number one killer is heart disease : 50 % of population will fall prey to heart conditions.
2.Cancer will claim another 20 %.
3.About 36 million of population are suffering from arthritis ; another 10 million have diabetes, which is the leading cause of new cases of blindness, about five thousand (5 000) per year. An additional 20 thousand people a year have toes, feet or legs amputated because of diabetes.
4.Add to that the innumerable colds and flus, the general aches and pains, the fatigue and weariness, the listlessness and unhappiness we see so much of. Too much for some of us.
"You only go around once, friend, why worry, be happy!" some may answer with a hearty laugh. True, we do only go around once. But that go-around is meant to be lived. I don't call having a heart attack, two heart surgeries and cancer, living. I call that a slow, painful death.
Martha R, is a 42-year-old mother of three who came to a doctor's office and announced, " I haven't been healthy in ten years. They ought to make a TV show about me, 'What's My Disease?' On the average I have four colds a year, the flu twice, six to eight asthma attacks, migraines twice a month. i have to drag myself out of bed every morning, my life is boring and nothing makes me laugh. Oh, and my last doctor said I also have hypoglycemia."
If only Martha knew about dehydration-related symptoms and just re hydrate her own body promptly every day.
Low Blood Pressure : Due to excessive use of devitalized foods in the diet, resulting in deficiency of vital elements in the blood stream.
Primarily due to nutritional deficiency as a result of eating all or most cooked and processed foods, and in any case as a rule because of the absence from the daily diet of fresh raw vegetable juices which can be quickly and efficiently used in the regeneration of the blood corpuscles. One very serious contributing cause is the lack of proper and sufficient rest. Each hour's sleep before 10:00p.m. is worth more than two hours' sleep in the morning. Smoking and alcoholic drinks are paramount reasons for high and low blood pressure. Use water is wiser.
