Lowering cholesterol, high blood pressure and blood sugar with medication has been compared to “mopping up the floor while the sink is overflowing.”
Medications have little to no healing effect because they only treat the results. They do not the cause. The cause is our behaviors. It’s always behaviors. Genetics may load the gun, but our behaviors pull the trigger. Several large studies show this.
The “EPIC” study of 23,000 people, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, showed that four behaviors: Not smoking, exercising three and a half hours per week, eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight prevented 93% of diabetes, 81% of heart attacks, 50% of strokes and 36% of all cancers. Imagine adding once per month chiropractic care to that study.
A 2004 study of 30,000 people in Lancet, INTERHEART study, found that changing lifestyle could prevent 90% of all heart disease.
Every action, every moment overwrites our DNA. Time adds it up for us. Transformation and change is the only constant. Changing behaviors to a healthy lifestyle makes us feel alive and healthy without medication’s side-effects. Then, if you actually need medications, they tend to work for you, and usually at lower, more tolerable dosages.
