Fighting Cancer with Germs

Cancer

cancer cell

Abnormal cells, a precursor to cancer, grow in our bodies at all times. Many things lead to creating multi-nuclei cells (cancer), such as chemicals and radiation. Once these cells mutate, it’s the duty of the innate intelligence inside our body to detect the cancer cells and use its defense mechanisms to eliminate the cancer cells via the immune system. Our immune system is a learned innate intelligence response to foreign antigens, aka germs.

Immune System

The immune system starts working via a mothers breast milk, giving her baby the needed antibodies to fight off diseases while  the newborn’s immune system begins to grow. As the baby transitions from breast milk to regular foods, the newborn’s immune system takes on a bigger  role of fighting off the bacteria and viruses that assault our bodies on a constant basis. Many of the childhood diseases are considered building blocks for the immune system and provide long term immunity in most cases, such as chicken pox. The immune system studies the virus and/or bacteria and starts a library on the foreign invaders, so it will know how to react to them the next time. Part of the immune response includes a fever, extra mucus, coughing, and sneezing (symptoms), all of which are programmed responses to help the body fight off and expel the foreign invaders. As a baby weens off of breast milk, the immune system should be strong enough to handle the normal flora (bacteria present in your environment) and fight them off with minor sickness (having symptoms).

According to a new study involving pacifiers in Denmark (1), when a health baby is allowed to be involved with germs, greater immune responses evolve. When a baby is subjected to a sterile environment, the immune system starts to act inappropriately. When you reach for the disinfectant and antibiotics for normal childhood symptoms, are you helping the immune system grow or are you robbing it of an opportunity to grow and become stronger?

If childhood diseases are building blocks for the immune system and they help us create a thriving foundation for our children’s immune system, should we rethink how we use products that keep us at arms length from the  childhood germs?

Chiropractic Family

Growing up in a chiropractic family, we weren’t immune to getting sick, but we empowered our bodies with the proper sleep, nutrition, hydration, and a nervous system free of interference, to allow the body to adapt and overcome the foreign antigens. By using the milder diseases as building blocks, our body’s innate intelligence has a greater ability to adapt and survive to it’s environment. Our family is rather healthy and free of most ailments that our environment is inflicting on many children today, such as diabetes, autism, allergies, asthma, reflux, migraines, autoimmune diseases, etc.

The Battle is won in  the Preparation Stage

Back to the immune system. Every day your body is fighting cancer cells by releasing white blood cells that specialize in finding and exterminating irregular cells. Our immune system should be treated like our body.

Lean vs FlabbyDo we like a weak, flabby, couch potato figure? How does someone achieve a flabby body? The flabby body usually didn’t require much work or a plan, it just happens from the mindset “whatever is easiest“.

Or do we gravitate to a lean, muscular, strong body?  How did the muscular/strong frame come to be?  To get a  lean, muscular, strong body, it took a plan that included a lot of work, proper sleep, good nutrition, lots of  hydration, and a nervous system with less interference.

Which type of immune system do you want, a couch potato one or a sleek, mean, green, immune machine?

When you look in the mirror tomorrow, do you see a body and immune system that looks up to the task of the day of fighting cancer cells? Or have you let yourself go a little?  Much of the USA population doesn’t have a choice when it come to fighting cancer; the first layer of the foundation was allowing a baby to come in contact with simple germs while under the protection of mom’s breast milk, but most children have seen a sterile environment and formula for nutrition. Only the outliers get the benefit from dropping their pacifier on the floor and putting it back in their mouth. The second layer of the foundation was the  the childhood diseases, but most children are vaccinated to the point that only the outliers get the benefit from having the chicken pox as a building block. The third layer of the foundation was the common bacterial infection, but most children are given antibiotics for the smallest fever, sniffle, or earache, so only the outliers get the benefit from fevers, common bacteria, and simple upper respiratory infections. In today’s society, how could we think that our bodies could fight off cancer cells when we’re destroying all of the learning experiences for immune system?

Next time you want to sterilize something, inhibit a natural function, or pop an antibiotic in your mouth, stop and ask the question “Am I really helping myself in the long term or am I sacrificing long term health for short term relief?“.

Is it Healthcare? or really a Disease Care System?

In today’s society we use this word “health” very freely without regards to real meaning.

Noah Webster wrote in his original version of the Webster’s Dictionary “HEALTH, n. helth. [from heal.] That state of an animal or living body, in which the parts are sound, well organized and disposed, and in which they all perform freely their natural functions.”, he does go further to speak about plants, animals, and religious health.

Current Webster’s definition “a : the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit;especially : freedom from physical disease or pain”

World.Health.Organization – Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

The part that confuses me is the “in which they(parts) all perform freely their natural function.” because we as a society have tried to circumvent the natural function portion of the definition of health and it (natural function) has been deleted from the current Websters Dictionary and substituted with “sound”.

Let’s see if these statements are true or false:

  1. There is a man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him with natural function.
  2. There is a  man who takes statin drugs to change the cholesterol in his body. These drugs help him to remain sound.

#2 is the current all0pathic(medical) model, where the medicines are distributed to try to stabilize a body that has dysfunction and side effects are minor.

#1 is actually false. To help with natural function, the substance would have to come from nature in a normal environment. Examples an orange, apple, broccoli, etc. Statin pharmaceuticals come from a lab and block functions in the body and as time goes on we start to see the unintended consequences like diabetes.

Here is a list of drugs that were approved by the FDA but now the unintended consequences have  landed many people in the hospitals and/or graves prematurely: Celexa,Lexapro,Fosmax, Zoloft, Topamax, Meridia, Accutane, Wellbutrin,   Paxil, Depakote, Reglan to name a few.

Health does not come from a bottle. It comes from inside all of us. It starts with drinking clean water (your body weight / 2 = ounces per day recommended), eating a balanced diet (preferably the Paleo Diet), getting 8 hours of restful sleep (on your back), brisk 30 minutes of exercise 5x a week, and keeping your command and control system (the nervous system) free of interference.

For 117 years chiropractors have been adjusting the spine to clear interference with the nervous system. As science catches up to the chiropractic adjustment, the scientific world is validating what chiropractors have been saying for over a century.

Scientific advancements that have validated just a fraction of what chiropractors have known for years:

Neck Pain   Spinal Manipulation, Medication, or Home Exercise  for  Neck Pain

Headaches   Dose response and efficacy of spinal manipulation for chronic  headache

Asthma   Chronic pediatric asthma and chiropractic spinal manipulation

Infant Reflux    Chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with reflux disease – Palmer Chiropractic Case – Ramsey
