After a short excursion into the power of purpose in achieving great health, we now return to biochemical issues. In our initial discussion of the biochemistry of great health we considered the role of the Big Four nutritional supplements: Nutrient 950, optimum dose vitamin C, optimum dose magnesium, and vitamin D sufficient to give a blood level of 60 to 80 ng. The Big Four probably give you the biggest boost for the buck on your way to great health. If you're already using them, congratulations! Please send a comment about what feels different. If you aren't already using them I suggest that you get started with Nutrient 950 as discussed in my Multiple Vitamin-mineral posts on this blog.
We will now approach the biochemical issue from a different perspective: Those biochemical factors that block your achievement of great health. You have probably heard about the swine flu epidemic, which is now pandemic. I'll begin to tell you about some hidden epidemics that are at least as dangerous as swine flu in its present form. The most dangerous of these, in my opinion, is the epidemic of deceit by the big pharmaceutical companies (Big Pharma). John Abramson, MD, clinical professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, put it this way in the subtitle of his book, Overdosed America: "How the big pharmaceutical companies are corrupting science, misleading doctors, and endangering your health."
What I am about to write will not make pleasant reading for many people. If I were to notice that you are about to be blindsided by an onrushing truck and I told you about it, that would probably not be a pleasant experience for you. You might feel a flash of annoyance that I had disturbed you. You might even ignore what I was saying to you and continue on your merry way across the street. However, if you overcame your initial annoyance and looked around to see if I am telling the truth or not, you would probably not regret it.
In my next post I will give my perception of the Big Pharma truck that I see bearing down on you. I'll give you a list of how, in my perception, Big Pharma is endangering your health. In subsequent posts I'll provide some evidence to support my perception and tell you some action you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Some of the more important parts of what I've learned are from Dr. Abramson's book, Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. At this point, I think one of the most health supportive things you could do would be ordering a copy of Overdosed America (which you can do by clicking Bookstore on the home page of this blog) and read it.
