I Used to be a “Free Radical” – Now They Are My Enemy!

free-radicalsI lived a worry-free life for a very long time.  I didn’t give a second thought to organic eating or a wellness protocol.  In fact, I made jokes about both.   It wouldn’t have occurred to me that “oxidative stress” had anything to do with the human body.  I was a “free radical” with good health and not a care in the world.   Then something strange happened….I woke up when I started losing my health.  I’m fortunate that it didn’t take a major health crisis to jar me awake!    When I opened my eyes (and mind) I learned that there are HUGE health issues all around me that have little to do with age and everything to do with lifestyle and environmental exposure!

I learned that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females and that it is no respecter of age.  As the mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and the grandmother to a 22 month old grandson the odds are too scary to ponder.  Cancer is wreaking havoc on our world and, from the outside looking in, it appears like we’re much more focused on a C U R E than we are about prevention.  Of course, that could just be the “free radical” in me speaking up!

I learned that the rate of autism is off-the-charts striking 1 in every 50 children across America.  As a military mom I am extremely troubled by the fact that these rates are HIGHER on military bases!   Hmm…looks like an environmental problem to me!   There goes that “free radical” spirit again!

I learned that “Free Radicals” were not a good thing and that if I didn’t do something to make changes in my own life, and lead by example for the next generation(s),  these free radicals could literally be the  slow death of us all.

I learned that just by changing my water I could win the battle against free radicals.  Now I drink water that has anti-oxidation properties that are 700,000 times more powerful than a glass of orange juice.  Needless to say, I drink as much as I can and I’m sure that my family does the same.  Changing our water has been the single most positive step we’ve taken in our battle for wellness.  That was easy!  After all, we’re all drinking water anyway…it only makes sense to drink water that fights free radicals!

It’s painful to wake up and to assume responsibility BUT now I’m FREE to be RADICAL about our current health crisis and, in keeping with the personality of my younger years, I intend to be bold in the fight.  So…if I step on your toes from time-to-time it’s probably best to just push the delete button.  I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to stop fighting for the next generation.  After all, I have a responsibility to “save” them from other “free radicals” like me too clueless to speak the truth.

Hey Nike…Where’s the Balance?

NIKEThere is no cure for cancer.  I know some people do get “cured” of cancer but you can thank your body for kicking into high-gear and not the treatment itself.   The human body was designed to mend itself IF it is given what it needs.  In many cases if the treatment is radical enough and the body still strong enough the BODY ITSELF will begin to mend.  Save the “thanks” for the Great Physician…the doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies can find their thanks in their bank accounts.

Cancer treatment is grossly misunderstood at the expense of the patient (and the insurance companies).   Our cancer treatment involves attacking the cancer cells in an effort to kill them.  Unfortunately we kill the healthy cells right along with the cancer cells and it is reported that more people die from the treatment than from the cancer itself because the body couldn’t endure the trauma of the method(s) used.

(CNN) – Nike co-founder Phil Knight stunned backers of the Oregon Health & Science University’s cancer institute by announcing he and his wife would put up half of a billion-dollar push for cancer research.  The $500 million gift from Phil and Penny Knight is contingent on the Portland university’s ability to raise $500 million from other donors over the next two years.

We have known the root cause of cancer for 90 years.  In fact, Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his discovery in 1931 and yet we continue to throw good money toward research and we refuse to acknowledge the power in prevention.  Meanwhile the U.S. cancer rate is  a staggering 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females.  These numbers call for attention to the root cause, don’t you think?

I think it’s time to find the real balance.   The balance in the body, that is. Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees and the obvious things are overlooked.   Here is a brief reminder of balance that the human body is dying for (no pun intended):

Avoid harmful pesticides and chemicals at all costs.  Refuse to drink out of plastic bottles.  Avoid acidic foods and eat foods that are alkaline.  Get plenty of rest.  Exercise and spend time in the sun (no, it’s not your enemy) and breathe fresh air.   Last, but certainly not least, drink  ionized, alkalized, restructured, anti-oxidant water and LOTS of it every day… all day to fight free radical damage, to balance alkalinity, to flush out toxins, and to remain efficiently hydrated. 

Now that’s balance.  I think Dr. Warburg would give his stamp of approval on this one and it didn’t cost billions and billions of dollars to figure it out!

Your body is 70% water and unless you believe that this was some sort of “design error”, you need to give the body what it needs!  

If you don’t understand the differences in water then its about time for you to get proactive and do a little research on your own!  Oxidation, dehydration and inflammation are your enemies and healthy water is the biggest component in fighting back!

How is your body supposed to fight for health if you refuse to fight right along with it?  Hmm…
