It isn't coming. The "cure" isn't coming. Ever since President Nixon declared war on cancer we have been told that the "cure" was just around the corner. The next blockbuster drug, the next breakthrough, the next research finding would be the key to unlocking the cancer puzzle and we would be free from the scourge of its death sentence.
But it isn't coming. Ever. We've been lead on. "The Race for the Cure," is a hoax. All of the other fundraising calls, "if we just had more money, we could do it!" are also a hoax.
There are some that are ignorant. I was one of them. I didn't know the life-changing power of dietary interventions. I didn't know heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, and a hundred other chronic conditions were due to not following the plan. But now it just makes simple sense to me.
Are we really living a life that is in accordance with the way we were designed to live? We were designed to live a physically active lifestyle, working with our hands to survive. We were designed by God to be nourished with the fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains that grew from the land. We were designed for a plant-based diet.
Generally, we have strayed a long way from our design. We weren't designed to commute an hour each way to work, sit in front of a computer, and eat processed food that came in a box or can with a UPC code on it. We weren't designed to live on the 40th floor in the middle of the concrete jungle breathing in the polluted air of modern industry.
Could it be that sickness has something to do with not following the blueprint?
Now, stick with me for a minute. Just suppose that sickness is mostly due to dietary and lifestyle choices. How, then, will the next new drug get you close to the blueprint?
Is there a drug for lack of exercise? Is there a drug for kale? Spinach? Carrots? Apples? Grapes? Turmeric and other spices? Is there a drug for lack of sleep? (Yeah, you think its coffee and caffeine, but it doesn't really help you restore and replenish like real sleep does.)
How does a statin drug deal with a deficiency in your body? Are you deficient in Lipitor? Is your cancer chemotherapy really going to build up your immune system? Isn't it a race between who dies first—you or the cancer? Do your hypertensive drugs really deal with the root deficiencies and excesses that caused your high blood pressure in the first place?
If we are sick because we are eating the wrong foods and living a stressed-out lifestyle, then the answer must lie somewhere in beginning to eat the right foods again. Maybe for the first time. And living a more sane existence.
Nutrition science can point us in the right direction as well. When people have a low-risk health profile and follow even moderately healthy eating habits the rates of chronic disease are 60, 70, 80, even 90% less than comparison groups.
If this is true, why do we listen to medical science telling us that the BIG breakthrough is just around the corner? Why do we give in to our doctor when he wants to prescribe us medications, while he glibly tells us that what we eat doesn't make any difference in our physical poor health? Why? Is it the spell of the high technology, the advanced degrees, the authoritative way he talks? Why?
There is a better way. There is a way to reverse disease and sickness. There is a way to finish well. You don't have to give up your dreams because you just can't get up and go the way you used to.
You need to transform the way you think. You need to read. Read books, testimonies, and get an education about what is possible when you change your diet and lifestyle. Rev. George Malkmus' The Hallelujah Diet is a good place to start. The China Study by T. Colin Campbell is another good read. The testimony section of the Hallelujah Diet website is another important place to spend some time. Unravel the Mystery by Ann Malkmus is excellent if you are facing cancer. You need to reprogram your mind so that you don't conform to the pattern of this world.
So don't wait for the cure. Don't expect your doctor to get you into a clinical trial so you have a chance for the latest clinical breakthrough. Start eating and drinking the cure. Start living the cure. It's already here.
