Do we have an integral part to play in departing from this world before our time. Or do we believe our time is our time when it comes to death. The research studies provide us with a resounding “YES” to playing a role in how and or when we leave this world.
When someone passes away due to a non-communicable disease (NCD), did that person have any personal involvement in bringing on the disease or disorder.
Time Magazine Inflammation: The Secret Killer, provided how inflammation is the cause to many life threatening diseases of our day. The world over, research has proved how inflammation in the body is said to be caused by a number of lifestyle factors for which we have control over. The result of this inflammation is a major contributor to early death due to heart attacks, strokes, cancers and the like.
The risk-based approach seeks to eliminate these lifestyle factors that cause inflammation which then go onto cause the life threatening and often fatal diseases.
Dr. Jonathan Wright openly and truthfully discusses cholesterol and what you need to know about those cholesterol numbers and heart disease. He also discusses causes of heart attacks and strokes and one little action people can do to reduce their risks by 75% or more! Also, find out why women are less prone to heart attacks until menopause. Watch ‘ They won’t tell how to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke‘
Caldwell Esselstyn, MD of the famed Cleveland Clinic talks about reversing heart disease with a plant based eating plan. Dr. Esselstyn argues that heart attacks, the leading cause of death for men and women worldwide, are a “food borne illness” and explains why diet is the most powerful medicine.
Dr. Esselstyn’s ongoing 21-year study shows that you CAN reverse heart disease and save your life. Of 20 patients sent home to die by their cardiologists in 1989, every one was still alive and healthy 20 years later, and heart-disease free, even though together they had had a total of 63 cardiac events before entering his study.
The past few decades has seen a greater shift towards preventable disease of the heart, cancer and respiratory disorders as the leading cause of death. Research shows that these NCD’s are preventable. We learn that due to one’s own genetic predisposition to certain diseases, no matter how well one has looked after themself, they will still develop the disease or disorder. This is not what we are talking about in this article. We are talking about the diseases and disorders where no genetic predisposition exists, but the result of developing the disease rest on our own shoulders.
In 1900, the top 3 causes of death were infectious diseases (communicable diseases) —pneumonia and flu, tuberculosis, and gastrointestinal infections (a fourth infectious disease, diphtheria, was the 10th leading cause of death).
In 2018, this clear shift from communicable diseases to non-communicable is alarming. The NCD’s such as heart disease and strokes, cancer, respiratory diseases and Alzheimer’s make up over 60% of total deaths. Deaths, which in most instances could have been prevented.
The medical fraternity, backed by big pharma, would agree that these NCD’s could be controlled with medication and therapy. Yes, the can in some instances, however only for a period of time while it robs the individual of a quality life, otherwise experienced without any disease or disorder.
Where an individual survives a serious disease trauma, there is a survival period for which they may continue to live, assisted on medication, therapy or an appliance. There are cases where individuals have also recovered substantially.
Every person questioned, univocally states that they would prefer to live their life unassisted by a drug, therapy or appliance. To achieve this in a busy world of doing, a risk-based approach is utilised to focusing on the 20% that would cause the 80% of future ills. This approach asks one question: What is the 20% I must focus on to enjoy a life free of a disease or a disorder?
The approach focuses its attention on a few lifestyle elements to mitigate the consequences of the top 5 diseases, we inadvertently and positively impact the other diseases and while doing so gain an optimised level of well-being.
As each person is unique you would need determine your own action plan to enjoy well-being where the top diseases are minimised or eliminated from showing up now or later in life. Where assistance is required we help our clients and put them on the road to achieve their personal goals and objectives for what health means to them.
