Why do 1 in 2 Americans have a chronic condition and take several pharmaceutical medications?

Our body requires certain levels of nutrition and hydration, and if not provided, we will adapt to the conditions, but in doing so, nutritional deficits will be the consequence. While we are not directly responsible for the degradation of the food, water, and air, we are responsible to ourselves and our families to eat as our body is designed, for nutrition and hydration.

Q. What does our body require? 

A. Foundational levels of nutrition, which means your body requires (not wants, not would like, but requires) certain vitamins and minerals, and certain levels of cellular hydration (or different levels of water in your 20 different cell sizes). 

We are designed to receive nutrition through whole food and water both – today that’s almost impossible without whole food supplementation and clean drinking water at home. 

This article is based around Americans ingesting far too many pharmaceuticals. Below you will watch a video of a pharmaceutical representative describing in detail exactly why so many of us are taking so many pharmaceuticals, and exactly how the pharmaceutical industry works. Did you know that pharmaceuticals carry the highest profit margin of any business in the country. 

And did you know our body is a miracle that can work miracles once we become empowered, once we learn, and once we know which direction to point ourselves. “Point yourself in the right direction and YOU will follow” means your body inherently knows what is good for it and what is bad for it, and for the most part so do our brains, however our brain doesn’t have taste buds. Today we have to be careful to derive our nutrition from whole foods and our hydration from clean drinking water. Look at the reality of this, see what you think, and determine if you are willing to make small changes to improve the quality of your health. 

Straight from Wikpedia:  

Nearly one in two Americans (133 million) has a chronic medical condition of one kind or another,[1] and chronic illnesses cause about 70% of deaths in the United States and take up about 75% of the costs each year.[2] However, most of these people are not actually disabled, as their medical conditions do not impair normal activities. According to this report, the most common chronic conditions are high blood pressure, arthritis, respiratory diseases like emphysema, and high cholesterol. (more…)

CNN’s “You Have Gerd” (acid reflux) presentation..”Quell the Angry Esophagus”

Acid reflux, or in this case, GERD (really bad acid reflux), can be painful, uncomfortable, irritating and annoying, just as  we know, and as the doc on CNN explains on his video. I like his idea of lifting one end of the bed so it’s more difficult for the acid to come up, however eliminating the acid sounds like a better plan to me.

From a natural health perspective you would look at the root issue “acidity”, and begin to resolve that with “alkalinity”, however that does not preclude targeting an issue say for example GERD or acid reflux. Targeting a symptom to resolve it or ease it up, is essential as you begin to get your body back into balance. Getting back into balance is the key, because once in balance symptoms begin to fall away.

Personally,  if I had acid reflux I’d opt for the simple remedy of taking a  teaspoon of Living Clay in 3-4 oz of water(tasteless essentially) stir until dissolved, and I’d drink it.

Why? Because Calcium bentonite (also known as montmorillonite) clay is a type of volcanic ash that has extraordinary absorption of acids and toxins. It first adsorbs, meaning attracts the acids/toxins, then absorbs, so essentially the clay acts like a sponge, not releasing the acidity but expelling it through normal elimination. Along the way it will do the same to the other toxins throughout the digestive and elimination systems.

Living Clay can be used in countless ways for many reasons. Primarily, and aside from the wonderful minerals, etc.,  it carries a very high negative charge, while acidity or toxins carry a strong positive charge. Thus, similar to how a magnet works, the two attract one another.

The powder form of this clay can be made into a paste (and it’s also available in paste and liquid form), added to liquids, etc., in fact I wrote a printable document explaining all the ways we use Living Clay, from sprains and strains, to back pain, neck pain, headaches, acne, skin conditions, detoxify baths/soaks, foot baths/soaks, all the way to thickening agent for (made at home) fresh salad dressing and more! PS Incredible facial and back mask!

So why wouldn’t someone try clay? Afterall we are made of the minerals of the earth and the waters of the ocean. Such a simple remedy, yet so effective it’s become an anchor not only as a target remedy  for many issues, but  truly foundational for pH balance and passive cleansing all year-long.
