Consider Yourselves Blessed and Rejoice If You and Your Family Are Healthy—You Are in the Minority
“In the midst of a global disease, and for remaining healthy, the responsibility rests within our own two hands.”
I recently attended a reunion where I was outwardly compared to those my age. It quickly became evident who had cared for their health and who had not. Those vigilant concerning the state of their health, watching every possible threat and making adjustments to avoid toxins, need to take a moment and count their blessings. The state of your health really rests between your own two hands. The system will not save you, and if you are waiting for science, you should hedge your bet. If you are not taking pharmaceutical drugs, or like me, you serve your family organic milk and eggs and choose to eat organic (simply as an assurance that it is non-GMO), you read each label and supplement with nutraceuticals to cover deficiencies, you are in the minority, and your achievements need to be celebrated. You are doing a wonderful job of prevention and avoiding premature aging and disease.
According to the article Aging as a Biological Target for Prevention and Therapy chronic health problems are “related to the unprecedented aging of the human population in the 21st century and threaten to disrupt economies and degrade the quality of later life throughout the developed world. Fortunately, research has shown that the fundamental aging processes can be targeted by nutritional, genetic, and pharmacologic interventions to enhance and extend both health and longevity and based on experimental animal models. These findings clearly demonstrate that the biological rate of aging can be slowed.”
I am a firm believer in practicing anti-aging principles because the price of maintaining health is far less expensive than trying to regain one’s health. Through discovery, and rather than leaning to the pharmacological intervention, my preference is choosing the naturopathic approach of intervention for it is effective and without side effects and dependency. The article goes on to state the links that target the biological aging processes to prevent, or at a minimum delay the onset and progression of multiple chronic diseases and debilities that are typically observed in older adults. Through animal experimentation interventions they extended the life span and prevented or slowed the progress of cancer, reduced atherosclerotic lesions, improve heart function, alleviated normal age-related cognitive loss, and even improved vaccine response.
Isn’t that the sort of results we all wish for, to achieve a full life remaining healthy while building the health of your children from an infant so they outlive you and not you them?
According to the US government the rate of death from individual diseases is stratified by age. The rate of death by the advancement of age are for all major conditions from heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney diseases, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer disease. The term multimorbidity is defined as the presence of two or more chronic medical conditions in an individual and it can present several challenges in care particularly with higher numbers of coexisting conditions and related polypharmacy. In addition, the treatment of various diseases happens with multiple drugs, with each having the potential for adverse drug interactions. According to a 2017 survey 55% of Americans are taking four different drugs on average.
Medical science treats the symptom of disease not the core, and due to the drug interactions the side effects created need additional drug treatments which compounds the healing process resulting in additional disease symptoms. This pathway to healing goes contrary to the body’s natural design and is destined to fail each and every time. In my lectures I state time and time again that disease, like wolves, travel in packs, and the ones hidden in the shadows pounce when the opportunity presents itself. The same holds true to treating the symptoms of disease as one area is treated, another diseased area presents itself for treatment as the spiral effect deepens and the patient becomes more toxic.
The naturopathic approach for disease treatment must be holistic, treating the core health issues, which I refer to as “go-to treatments.” The natural treatment approach must ascertain the body as a whole, and treatment must be directed to all systems at the same time: the immune system, the endocrine system, the gastrointestinal system and the cardiovascular system, which includes the liver. This is the only pathway towards health restoration and for the prevention of disease when treating the core health issue and all regions affected allowing for proper drainage and balancing. We have designed treatment protocols for each system and when applied holistically, the body responds with healing. Once health is restored, a disease prevention protocol should be followed.
The sad thing is that most do not see how experimental medical intervention implementing treatment protocols that override your body’s natural immunity is a problem; they blindly trust the pharmaceutical industry with their life. The thing is the pharmaceutical industry is not what people see; instead they see a façade of trusted organizations doing their bidding: Health Canada, FDA, WHO, the mainstream media—they are pharmaceutical industry’s outlets used in selling their quick health fix for society. Why do you think it is called the Pharmacare Act?
An “observational study, which analyzed publicly available data on campaign contributions and lobbying in the US from 1999 to 2018, found that the pharmaceutical and health product industry spent $4.7 billion, an average of $233 million per year, on lobbying the US federal government; $414 million on contributions to presidential and congressional electoral candidates, national party committees, and outside spending groups; and $877 million on contributions to state candidates and committees. Contributions were targeted at senior legislators in Congress involved in drafting health care laws and state committees that opposed or supported key referenda on drug pricing and regulation.”
The role of the US pharmaceutical market is overall intriguing since it is the leader in prescription drug spending calculated per person. A report from 2011 showed that 40% of the worldwide total of approximately 6,500 drugs in clinical development was originated in the US.
Ask yourself this question: have you ever seen a pharmaceutical drug that has been designed to heal without a lifelong dependency on their temporary solution? We know perfectly well that the entire structure of our medical system and the money and control of the masses—from the medical schools to the lobbing of politicians—is in the continued treatment of disease symptoms, keeping the people well enough to work and pay their taxes but not informed enough to see they are pawns to the oligarchs. Of course, the thought that the pharmaceutical industry, and the medical system as a whole, causes more harm than good has been expressed by those coming from the very industry they decide to stand up to yet the situation has not seemed to get better, only worse.
In the midst of a global disease, and for remaining healthy, the responsibility rests within our own two hands, and it all comes down to making the right choices: the awareness and avoidance of environmental toxins, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicines we put into our bodies; remembering that what is absorbed to the cells (and not the gut) matters. All disease conditions can be treated using professional (natural) therapeutic medicine; in fact it’s our only alternative to allopathic prescription drugs with their host of side effects.

Eldon graduated as a naturopathic doctor in 1988; his pathway towards natural medicine was a result of witnessing family members struggle with cancer and recognizing that environmental toxins and nutrition correlated with the disease process. Eldon has more than three decades of experience in the naturopathic and natural healing industries. He spearheads all health-related research into medical conditions—specifically anti-aging and chronic disease treatments. Eldon’s philosophy is simple: educate and provide therapeutic medicines that work equally to allopathic drugs…without the side effects.
His mission statement of “Healing the Nation, One Person at a Time” really says it all.
