The catalogue of human diseases has been expanding with extremely alarming rates over the past century creating an epidemic of manmade iatrogenesis.
The era of industrial and agricultural mechanization has marked the beginning of a new stage in the history of human civilization. And so did the pharmaceutical industry by monopolizing the healthcare system. Healthcare is not about curing diseases. It is about masking symptoms through the administration of petrochemical drugs and invasive procedures, which as a result unleashes the dormant inherent predispositions and further weakens the constitution to create life-long customers for the pharmaceutical profit driven cartels.
We live in a chemical-laden environment. Our natural habitat being chronically poisoned is steadily drifting away from the optimal conditions that are an absolute pre-requisite for maintaining good health of all life within its limits.
We are fixated on eliminating mild natural illnesses, which natural design is to prime the immune system and prevent much more impactful and even lethal chronic maladies later in life. Yet, we have adopted the norm of manmade diseases induced by unnatural, unphysiological and ultimately harmful synthetic drugs, invasive surgeries, chemical-laden food, contaminated water and air. By forcefully inflicting change upon our ecosystem we must accept the inevitable consequences that come with that decision. And they are not promising.
Pathogens are becoming more resilient and virulent. Diseases are reaching a peak of resistance to the point of incurability, where only mere palliation is deemed possible. There are too many obstacles for a true cure to take place.
We need to come to terms with a simple truth. That is no amount of positive thinking and belief that organic food, clean water, natural therapies, nutritional supplements and such are going to help us unless we remove the maintaining causes that excited the dis-ease in the first place.
Perhaps, instead of perpetually seeking for “new revolutionary cures” for the entire catalogue of maladies we have created for ourselves, it would be wiser to take a step back and correct the residue of our own wrongdoing.
Let’s begin at the beginning then.
