Is it any wonder that so many people are in pain given the fact that we have lost sight of the natural health-giving gifts of nature and the wonderful natural healing properties of the amazing bodies that we inhabit? We have gone, over the last century, from spending more time in nature working and playing to spending practically every waking hour indoors, in artificially cooled or heated spaces, with inviting but ineffective artificial lighting, plopped in front of computers and other digital devices. We have placed our faith in pills and surgeries and “advanced technology” sadly assumed to be above the miraculous abilities the body has to heal and restore itself when given the chance. Even in our beautiful southern states, we’ve become almost hysterically afraid of the sun!
In light of this behavior, it certainly comes as no surprise to me that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are now studying how our retreat out of nature is affecting human health. Check this out. “Studies in the past decade indicate that insufficient sun exposure may be responsible for 340,000 deaths in the United States and 480,000 deaths in Europe per year, and an increased incidence of breast cancer, colorectal cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, asthma, type 1 diabetes and myopia.”
Insufficient sun exposure translates into a Vitamin D deficiency. Think about the effect that one single vitamin has on overall health! It’s astonishing. And the best and only place to naturally get this Vitamin D is out in the sunshine. And get this, it’s absolutely free! But wait!! Haven’t you been taught that the sun is dangerous? Of course you have! So, that scare tactic has turned you into a cave dweller and the perfect patient who goes from one doctor to another trying to find out what’s wrong. You’ve become the person who is seeking that perfect pill or the most advanced surgical technique instead of turning to the extraordinary gifts of nature. The thing to remember is to learn how to use the sunlight most effectively to not get sunburned. And to enhance with good, natural, professional grade supplements.
Vitamin D boosts overall immune function by modulating innate and adaptive immune responses. It also reduces respiratory distress and improves overall lung function while helping to produce surfactants in the lungs that aid in fluid clearance. Scientific studies have shown that people with higher-than-normal levels of Vitamin D3 rarely end up on ventilators, rarely end up in the hospital and rarely end up dying or suffering extreme symptoms with the COVID-19 syndrome. These facts alone should motivate you to find the simple and effective programs you need to pursue at whatever stage in your life, to insure your better future health.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep on saying it. It doesn’t occur to most people who are suffering that their pain may be due to lifestyle, such as excessive stress and poor nutrition. When lifestyle problems happen, there are no drugs nor surgeries that can fix them. To promote life-long health and permanently fix your problems, you need a physician well-trained and long-practiced in nutritional medicine.
Since 1981 I have offered my patients a full range of natural health-restoring strategies. To discover the root of the problem in order to be able to fix it, three things must be considered: (1) what’s blocking you from getting better, (2) what you’re missing to get better, and (3) what switches to turn on.
With customized supplement (and prescription) programs, you can find optimum health through balancing your metabolism and replacing nutritional deficiencies. If you want to feel better you have to find a better way to address your health concerns. Finding someone who works along with natural healing is a great place to start or at least to end up. Give my office a call if you’re really ready to feel better.
