We basically have it all wrong and need to change our mindset from dependency on doctors and surgeons as cure-all to our diseases and aging process. At one time doctors took out everyone’s tonsils, gall bladders, then the next trendy thing was to operate on your lower back, and then heart surgery, and radical prostatectomy… not to mention hundreds of antibiotics that are supposed to outsmart your next infection, which in many cases kills your good bacteria also setting you up for another round of infections and doctors visits.
Stephen Sinatra, MD comments on: The most profound insight I ever gleaned about staying healthy came to me after years of reporting on stories of truly remarkable remissions, recoveries, and renewals.
In a nutshell, it is this: Our marvelous human body possesses the awesome ability to repair and renew itself as long as we live. In fact, your body is performing this near-miraculous feat this very moment as you read this! Now this probably comes as no surprise to someone with your health awareness. But the average person has a very different idea.
Most people believe we are born with a perfect body that slowly deteriorates as we age, until it finally falls apart. They see their body as a machine — something that requires continual maintenance from doctors, whose job is to repair our damaged parts.
Most doctors believe this too. Indeed, our entire allopathic medical system is based on this idea.
But this mechanical model of the human body is precisely where modern medicine has gone wrong. In reality, a doctor’s role in the healing process is very small. Most of the job — as much as 90% of it — is accomplished without any need of a physician or his medicines. If you nick yourself shaving, what happens? Almost immediately, new tissue begins to form — and days later you can’t even tell where the cut was.
Break a bone and the same regenerating process occurs. Even more remarkable, the healed bone emerges stronger than before. The same is true for damaged arteries … injured brain cells and nerve tissue … and worn-out cartilage in arthritic joints.
Doctors have been quick to downplay this self-healing ability. “Joint cartilage just doesn’t regenerate very well,” they like to say.
Ten years ago that’s exactly what brain surgeons thought about brain cells: “Once you lose a neuron, that’s it. They don’t regenerate.” And as recently as three years ago, cardiologists were sure that heart tissue damaged by a heart attack never repaired itself: “Dead heart cells don’t regenerate.”
Today we know they were dead wrong in each instance. Brain cells and heart cells do regenerate — just like all living tissue in the human body…And that includes joint cartilage! Let me give you an example…
One prominent physician is demonstrating this phenomenon to the skeptical medical community in a dramatic way. His remarkable joint-regenerating method is helping thousands of people to find new freedom from chronic pain, disability and pain-relieving drugs. He describes it as “giving yourself a joint replacement, but without the surgery or expense.”
I hope you’ll always remember that your body is committed to repairing and regenerating itself — and will continue to do so as long as you live. No matter how old you are, it will generate new skin, bones tissue, muscle, and cells. Your immune system will continue to conquer bacteria and viruses, colds and flu, cancer and other diseases. And your wounds and bruises will heal, just as they have all your life.
There’s just one catch.
YOU must provide your body’s remarkable repair power with the nutritional materials and building blocks it needs to keep going and growing.
That’s our job — yours and mine. Not the doctor’s. Keep doing this and you’ll be as awe-struck as I am by the miracle within each of us. Adapted from: secondopionionnewsletter Stephen Sinatra, MD and Jim Healthy, the publishers of Arthritis Interrupted.
So there you have it! If you want to take control of your life and avoid many diseases, doctors visits and hospital calls…. simply give your body good nutrition and witness your bodies amazing ability to heal itself.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: When your cell phone runs low on power, you plug it in. Electricity is your phone’s source of energy. People need energy, too, but we can’t simply plug ourselves in to get it. Instead, we need food to fuel our bodies. Not all foods, however, give us the same energy. Some foods provide energy to think, form memories, and perform physical activities, while others only slow us down. The key is learning how to make the right decisions when choosing what to eat.
THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE:Your Life! If it up to you…it’s up to you to learn to eat healthy. Eat live foods versus dead foods… raw fresh real foods, steamed vegetables and fish instead of canned, fried and processed foods filled with all sorts of harmful additives.
ZENTAVELER SAYS: If you want to think outside of the box you need to switch over to good nutrition and healthy lifestyle. Herbalifes recent nobel prize winner recommends the Mediterranean Diet, which includes: using high quality olive oil for all of your cooking and salad needs, fresh fish from the ocean, not farm raised, fresh organic vegetables and fruits. You can enjoy one glass of red wine with your meal plus adding Herbalifes nutritional Shakes on a daily basis. Herbalife shakes are a complete meal in themselves and have been tested with some of the best research doctors in the world.
