Tips to Gauge Your Health

Posted by theancientpathsfamilyfarm on May 23, 2008

In a local paper the other day an article was published that I really appreciated.  Below are some excerpts from it.  I have made a few changes to some sentences and have included links to things I thought were relevant.  You can view the original article here.

In his new book, Medical Crisis: Secrets Your Doctor Won’t Share With You, Anthony Martin, a certified Natural Medicine Practitioner, asserts that breast cancer and prostate cancer are nearly 100% preventable.

It takes more than five years for most cancers to grow to the size of the top of a ball point pen. By the time cancer is found by routine blood tests or feeling a lump, the patient may have missed precious time.

Here are Martin’s four warning sign tips to find out if you are on the path to cancer, stroke or other illness:

1)  Energy

“If you’ve been tired for three weeks straight, your body is trying to tell you something is wrong,” he said.  Long-term fatigue is tied to red blood cells.  Red blood cell problems can lead to liver, kidney or brain trouble.

2)  pH Balance

70% of the human body is water.  Water, like in a swimming pool, is either acidic or alkaline.  An unbalanced pH is a breeding ground for cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and pre-mature aging.

3)  Free Radicals

The body produces free radicals as a process of detoxifying itself.  When balanced, they are used by the immune system to destroy bacteria and viruses.  Unbalanced free radicals can lead to cancer, coronary heart disease, stroke, arthritis or Alzheimer’s.

4)  Inflammation

You need cells to “puff up” to stop bleeding – but too much can strangle the arteries and cause coronary heart disease.  Fat cells are a side effect of obesity.  Too many fat cells, or cells that are too “puffy”, can lead to asthma, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Martin suggests that people take charge of their health care and ask for specific tests:  urine, blood and saliva.  Once you and your Doctor know where you stand, you can start working on the antidote.

“Change your attitude, change your diet, change your exercise habits and change your supplements,” he said.  So much of what Americans are dying from these days is 100% preventable.”
