It’s unfortunate but health is a lot like politics and religion. Everyone has a point of view that usually serves their own special interest or background. But when it comes to health and healing you need to consider the different approaches taken by the different healing philosophies.
It has been estimated by those who practice natural, integrative medicine that 90 percent of all diseases begin in the colon. The reason for this is because the colon is the sewage system for the body.
If you think cholesterol testing is your safeguard for determining if you are going to die of a heart attack or stroke, think again? Fifty percent of the people who die of a heart attack had good cholesterol?
Apparently there is a new study saying that people with good cholesterol should also be taking a cholesterol lowering drug. Who paid for that study? Could it be the drug company that is selling the drug? Did you know that about 50% of the people with normal cholesterol levels have heart attacks and die! Therefore the thought that people with normal levels of cholesterol should take a drug that has so many negative side effects is crazy.
There is another new study that just came out showing that when you reduce the amount of carbohydrates, specifically the processed, refined carbs…from your diet you will reduce your blood pressure and raise the ‘good’ cholesterol.
Is elevated blood pressure the cause of your possible heart condition or is it a signal or marker that your cardiovascular system is in jeopardy. The approach of traditional medicine is to lower your blood pressure with medications in hopes that it will reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
If you’re worried about heart disease or dying of a heart attack or stroke, the one nutrient or food you need to be adding to your daily diet are the omega-3 fatty acids.

If you are trying to get healthy and fit, and not heading in the right direction it would be smart to get some additional help or a second opinion. Who’s second opinion you seek could be very telling to your results, because health is a lot like politics and religion. Everyone has their own opinions and special interest that they try to protect and promote.
If you’ve been struggling with a chronic health condition that hasn’t been getting better – maybe it could be your adrenal glands? Are you dealing with prolonged stress? Has your doctor even mentioned your adrenal glands or possible adrenal fatigue being the root of the problem?
