Yes, I know this is not you, because those reading these articles are more discerning, but I am amazed how many people are taking a cocktail of supplements, or even drugs, in an effort to have better health and vitality.
I recall many years ago when we went on a cruise around the Pacific. My wife and I came down to breakfast and drank juice and ate cereal and fruit. The rest of the table would get their pill boxes out and proceed to swallow a range of medications. Talking to my brother recently, he has been put on a range of supplements by his Doctor. It would seem that nowadays we are getting so many different pills and potions recommended, we often really don’t know what to do.
The Slippery Slope Of Medication
It is really unfortunate that virtually all drugs have side effects. Your practitioner is constantly juggling whether the benefits outweigh the costs when prescribing medication. Once on a med, it is likely that pretty soon you will experience side effects, requiring another drug to deal with it. This can end up with your body slowly deteriorating, while more pills are added that keep you alive, but slowly destroy your immunity. This is why I suggest that medication is a last resort. Fortunately, with my zest for natural health, I haven’t had a drug for many years and I am feeling great.
Like it or not, drugs are a two edge sword and although they claim many miracles, have a long term consequence.
There are two ways to supplement your body with the nutrients it is short of.
The preferred model of the mainstream health authorities is eating up to 15 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. I wonder how many actually achieve this? These proponents will tell you that you don’t need supplements as everything comes from food. This might be true if we lived in a pristine environment, where food was picked and eaten, but we don’t. The reality is that most foods are stored or transported vast distances, and as a result lose much of their nutrient value. A range of chemicals are used in production, and often the water is contaminated anyway, leaving a range of toxins in the food by the time it reaches our mouths. Still, it is a much better option than processed food, and we eat and recommend mostly raw fruits and vegetables.
If you can’t get enough nutrients from diet due to the poor nutrition in modern food, the next option is supplementation. This means pills, drops, or some form of concentrated nutrition to put back what your body is short of. Your Naturopath can do tests and discover deficiencies and then prescribe a range of supplements to replenish these. Of course, there is a catch!
What Stops Your Body Working
Regrettably, when you are exposed to toxins, particularly heavy metals, it messes with your immune system, nutrient levels, and body functions. It can even make you weak, for example Mercury can interrupt ATP molecules, reducing muscle fiber. Magnesium deficiency can be caused by excess heavy metals, and calcium is affected by various toxins too. Removing the cause seems to me to be a more logical way to improve our health than treating the symptoms. The interesting thing is that hair analysis reveals that a solid detox program over some months helps normalise vitamin and mineral levels without doing any supplementation!
Those who know me understand that I support Megadefense and Natural Cellular Defense, two products that contain a micronized activated zeolite. I have found that by taking NCD daily, over 6 months my toxic and nutritional levels all came into the normal range. I haven’t touched a pill since. When Megadefense came along I decided to add it to my regime. Most days, I take two of these tablets and nothing else. I am feeling great. It seems to me to be much simpler to support the immune system with Megadefense and remove toxins with Zeolite than to flush expensive supplements down the drain because your body is unable to properly use the nutrients.
I know I have a simple view on life, but it works for me, and has for over 30 years. It really is simple, and these days you can do it with just one pill! Here is the challenge. Take 2 capsules of Megadefense daily for 90 days. Go to your Naturopath and find out what you are deficient in. You may be pleasantly surprised. You can find out more at http://detoxzeolite.com/md.php This product is surprisingly cheap, considering it has the potential to greatly reduce your supplement intake.
If you know you are toxic, I would still take NCD as well. If you don’t know about this, you can get the free White Paper, which explains everything. Get it at http://detoxzeolite.com/lz.php
If you want to see other people’s stories, you can do so with two options. Type “stories” into the search engine on this site and you will see a number of real life testimonials. Go to http://testimonyinfo.com and you can read thousands of NCD stories, and a growing number from those taking Megadefense.
Now it is time to think. Do you want to continue with a handful of pills or medications, or can you see the sense in supporting your own body’s immune system and giving it some help to remove those toxins that cause so much damage. Over to you.
