Are Drugs Making Us Healthier?

Few people recognize that natural infections, especially early in life, can actually be beneficial as they serve to build a very strong and resilient immune system for later life.  In the days before vaccination, people's immune systems were allowed to become strong in such a way.  This means that, as they aged, people in previous generations were significantly stronger and less likely to die of disease than today.*

When I was growing up, I can't remember anyone with allergies, asthma, or autism. Some women had breast cancer but it wasn't nearly as prevalent as it is today. America has become a pill-popping society falsely believing that drugs will keep them healthy. Did you know that one of the first things doctors learn in medical school is that ALL drugs are toxic to the human body and should be given as a last resort after trying diet and lifestyle changes first?

Children are given close to 49 vaccinations before they turn 6 years old! People are so afraid of getting sick that they allow themselves to be injected with substances they have no idea how their bodies will react to or what the long term consequences will be.

Drugs don't cure. They are great for emergency situations but not to cure disease. God gave us amazing immune systems to heal and fight disease. Our older population is not healthy.  Most of them are taking fistfuls of drugs daily and burdening our already burdened health care.

It has been noted that there are a growing number of people living in their 100s, implying modern life is healthy.  Yet we must remember these people were mostly living in rural areas and small villages where life was hard, diets were mostly natural and modern medicines were rarely used until the extremes of age.  It is our early years which determine how healthy we will live in our later years.  Their early life was during a time when most of modern medicine didn't exist.*

These are people who were minimally vaccinated, ate better diets, mostly avoided medicine until absolutely needed, had strong family and social bonds and worked very hard all their lives.*

Drugs and chemicals play havoc on your digestive health. They destroy the friendly flora that keeps you healthy. Here are a few recommendations to staying healthy in a toxic environment ~

1.  Take a lot of good probiotics:  kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, etc.
2.  Stay as far away from plastics and chemicals as you can.
3.  Clean with non-toxic cleaners
4.  Eat as organically as you can afford.
5.  Get fresh air, sunshine, and exercise.
6.  Only use drugs when absolutely needed.

Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends,
let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
