Which Chronic Diseases Can be Cured

WHAT CAN BE FIXED WITH QUANTITATIVE MEDICINE?

You are no doubt thinking: Lifestyle changes may be unpleasant. I like my life now, but I do want peak health.  If I make all of the changes you suggest and fix my numbers, is that really going touhgdc modify my health. Will it really increase my longevity and prevent degenerative disease?

The somewhat hand-waving answer is: statistically – it definitely will. Results will vary depending on four things:

Degenerative Disease Overview

WHAT IS DEGENERATIVE DISEASE?

More than 70% of us will die from degenerative disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, adult onset diabetes, and others. This is tragic in of itself, but made even more so by the fact that degendegenerative disease is largely preventable.

Degenerative disease is all caused by chronic cellular stress, and relieving cellular stress will prevent and even reverse it.

HDL – Reverse Heart Disease, Reverse Cancer

 HDL IS YOUR BODY’S WONDER DRUG

It is hard to overstate the importance of High Density Lipoprotein or HDL. It is a circulating cell-clean-up particle and if fully harnessed will prevent and reverse heart disease andunnamed substantially reduce cancer risk. There’s really not anything else like it. It cleans up distressed cells in a variety ways, a cellular level garbage collector.

HDL is frequently referred to as ‘good cholesterol’. This is incredibly misleading. HDL is definitely ‘good’, but it’s not cholesterol any more than a garbage truck is the garbage itself.

Glycemic Index – Is It of Any Use?

DOES GLYCEMIC INDEX HAVE ANY VALUE AT ALL?

Glycemic Index has been “in” for some time. It provides a nice scientific sounding basis for choosing among carbohydrates. It is about as utterly worthless a guide to nutritional value as you could get.

Consider these items:gi

Glycemic index is measured by ‘administering’ a sole food, the one being tested, to a subject after an overnight fast. Is this how we eat? Obviously not, and this alone removes most of the value.

Meditation Can Prevent Cancer

MEDITATION, CORTISOL, AND CANCER

There are many causes of cancer and many defenses as well. Cancer starts at the cellular level, and involves a series of mutations to the DNA, and there are a variety of sophisticated ribbonmechanisms within the body that scout for these and clean them up. If the cells are under chronic stress, this protective system is greatly inhibited. Other components of the body’s response actually make cancer more likely. The bottom line is: stress causes cancer.

Pharmaceutical Spendings

IS YOUR A DOCTOR A SHILL FOR BIG PHARMA?

Now there is a way to find out. The U. S. Government is maintaining a data base of who paid what to whom. It’s called open payments and the link is here.121009020524-pills-money-prescription-story-top

You can enter any doctor’s name and see what he was paid and why. This includes research, which is likely to be reasonable, to consulting, which seems to be mainly a marketing activity, to drinks, which is an eyebrow raiser, to an interesting category called:

Understanding Medical Research – Part 3 – Interpreting Results

INTERPRETING MEDICAL RESEARCH STATISTICAL RESULTS

How to interpret the more common results found in medical research papers. What they mean, and how to spot problems.

From Benjamin Disraeli we have: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.”eretr

Unfortunately this applies all too frequently to the statistical results presented in medical research. While statistics does indeed have the power to elucidate, to find the proverbial needle in the haystack, it also has the power to obfuscate and deceive. One should therefore pay very close attention if there is a possible political or financial agenda associated with the research.
