Highlight on Causes of Disease
It has become customary of most human beings to believe that disease is a part of our daily life however what we think of as a “disease” is an imbalance of one of the body’s core physiological processes
While it may be convenient to lump together symptoms and call them “diseases,” that isn’t the way to address what is making us sick. It's not the way to think about medical care in the face of a changing pattern of health problems as we live longer lives — but lives that are increasingly limited and burdened by subpar health.
We know an event in one system can affect something else in another system. We even know that an improvement in one system may adversely affect something in another system.
Studies have shown that the state of mind as well as spirit is what also needs to receive attention, when a state of disease challenges the body. With that in focus, addressing the cause, utilising proper electrolyte hydration, nutrition (for mind and body), breathing, visualisation, flora balancing, body cleansing, immune activation and support, clean water in gratitude, prayer, silence, touch, massage, laughter, and love all are utilized to correct imbalances. An approach of integrative consciousness that also recognises the need to heal the attitude.
External Causes of Disease
Everyone has a lifestyle, and while certain aspects such as how much one eats, exercises, smokes, and drinks can be managed directly, not everything can be fully controlled. For instance, there can be toxins in the patient’s home or work environment that are not easily removed. A lifestyle, diet, and environment that are optimal for one person might be poison for another.
External causes of diseases are of a physical nature and they encroach upon the body from the outside environment. They are also called external pathogenic factors. Some of these include:
- Antibiotics & vaccines
- Chronic infections (bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral etc)
- Environmental pollutants
- Lifestyle (alcohol & drug use/abuse, diet, lack of exercise, poor posture, poor sleep, stress etc.)
- Malnutrition (It plays a far greater role in disease than previously understood)
- Toxic burden (chlorine & fluoride in water, food preservatives, root canal and mercury fillings)
Internal Causes of Disease
Internal causes of disease are not only those which arise from pathogens. Causative factors of poor health studies show are also connected to emotions, if they remain unresolved. Anger, joy, worry, grief, fear, anxiety, fright all contribute to the health of the patient.
A slightly expanded list of these gives:
- Unrestrained or inappropriate joy, laughter (what one might call hysterical over-excitement) affects the heart
- Worrying, over-thinking and obsession affects mainly the spleen
- Grief, sadness and worry affects the lungs
- Sadness also affects the heart
- Fear and deep anxiety affects the kidneys
- Anger and frustration affects the liver
- Shock affects the heart and kidneys
- Spinal alignment
- Energy alignment
Change the Underlying Causes of the Disease
- Realise that chemo and radiation do NOT change the underlying causes of cancer!!!
- Change the internal environment and use of restrained medical intervention
- Be with people who have faith, hope, a sense of humour and who are encouraging.
- "Crisis" is written in the Eastern languages with signs that mean both danger and opportunity
- Cancer, whilst it is seen as a "danger" to life, it is also an "opportunity" for the person to change their lifestyle
- Remember: happiness brings endorphins that supercharge the immune system
- Good thoughts and good nutrition remain key to healing
- There is wisdom in all life that knows how to fix disease, just provide the body with the correct physical and metaphysical resources to do its job
- Remind yourself to feed your mind daily with good thoughts, beauty, laughter, music and play
- Remember that it is imperative that you feed your heart with love and forgiveness and that they should remain confident in their abilities and have a sense of purpose
- Above all else - provide the body with GOOD, CLEAN, NUTRITION.
Mainstream medicine has become a colossal “one size fits all” system. The focus has been to diagnose a disease and match it with a corresponding drug. This process does not consider that we are all individuals and different; every person is genetically and biochemically unique. There are no “magic pills.” What works for one person may not work for the next. We should consider biological variability and tailor a solution for the individual.
Allopathic / Mainstream medicines are, for the most part, not designed to heal, but to manage symptoms. Because this is the case, when a patient with a chronic condition is given a medication, they are often told they’ll have to take the drug indefinitely. This is also why, as time goes on, medication lists normally become longer and dosages become higher.
We should see symptoms as the body’s warning. In terms of health, we should find out why the symptoms are there in the first place. Very few people are sick from a pharmaceutical deficiency.
Pharmaceuticals are formulated to block or inhibit certain overly active metabolic steps associated with the symptoms of a disease. This process of blocking/inhibiting often blocks a specific biological target that's important for normal functioning in other places within the body.
Side-effects of medication are effects, not side effects. And these effects are multiple in nature, not singular. For example, taking blood pressure lowering drugs may resolve a machine measured reading, considered to be an issue of high blood pressure, but often has overwhelming negative health effects.
Some of these negative effects impact the levels of oxygen the body and brain receives which ultimately shrinks the brain, weakens the heart and subsequently lowers male sexual potency. These negative effects from the chemicals and the artificial suppression of symptoms from the medications taken, have cascading effects on almost all the body’s systems including and especially the kidneys, as one example.
A patient’s ulcer may be under control, as a result of the antiulcerant, but it may be causing anaemia. Or if the patient’s arthritis pain may now be manageable due to the powerful anti-inflammatories they are taking, those same anti-‐ inflammatories may be contributing to their risk for kidney and liver disease.
A good question to ask yourself when assessing a treatment options is, “What is the most effective option that causes the least amount of side effects?” If an allopathic medicine fits this criterion, then it might be the best option for you.
Sadly, however, it just so happens that medications often do not fit these criteria.
A Highlighted Cause of Disease
We as humans don’t actually age, we don’t get sick and we don’t get diseases – our cells do. Our body’s health is dependent on our cell’s health. So, to slow down aging, limit sickness and prevent disease we must protect and properly feed our cells. If you were to put buttermilk in your car’s gasoline tank – it would get a “disease” and stop working.
How Do Cells Age, Get Sick and Get Diseases?
Diseases used to be accepted by most as unfortunate but inevitable facts of life. We now know that diseases were not “caught” rather they are reflections of the condition of our body’s cells. Most people know they must do regular maintenance for their new car. But few took care of their bodies that are much more complex than cars. If you put butter in car’s gas tank, your car will be “sick” and stop working. Similarly, if you don’t supply your body with the right amount of nutrients it needs, you will be sick. On the other hand, if you don’t change filters on time, your ventilation system will be clogged up and too much dust build up which will make it eventually stop functioning.
What Are Cells Made Of?
Cells are made up of many atoms. When these atoms are healthy, the cells replicate (make an exact copy) and keep the body young, well and disease-free. What makes an atom healthy is that it has “paired” electrons. See the picture: What Are Cells Made of?
Our body is made of millions of cells. The building blocks of cells are atoms. When atoms are healthy, our cells replicate more healthy cells allowing the unhealthy cells to die then to be discharged from the body. What makes an atom healthy is that it has paired electrons (yellow dots).
Atoms missing an electron are known as Free Radicals. Free radicals destroy surrounding atoms by stealing their electrons. Cells that replicate in a damaged state are the cause of all chronic diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, osteoporosis, and many others that develop over a long period of time.
Where do Free Radicals come from?
- Smoking - One cigarette generates one quadrillion free radicals, i.e. 1,000,000,000,000,000 !!!!!
- Airline Travel
- Mercury from seafood & teeth filling
- Chlorine from water
“Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer to cataracts. In fact, free radicals are a major culprit in the aging process itself. By controlling free radicals, antioxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age.”
– Lester Packier, Head of Pakcer Laboratory, Dept of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley
Free radicals make fat sticky so they start building up on the artery walls. These deposits cause blockage of blood flow, leading to heart attack or stroke. When cell’s DNA is damaged by free radicals, cancer cells develop and replicate resulting in many forms of cancer.
When we are not feeling well - allergies, heart attacks or cancer, they are symptoms not cause of the illness. Symptoms alert us that something isn’t right in our body. They are ways for our body to signal our brain to take immediate actions, such as to cleanse, detoxify the free radicals and to supply quality nutrients for the cells.
As a start, one of the solutions is to fight against free radicals is Antioxidants. Antioxidants have “extra” electrons to give to Free Radicals to turn them back into healthy atoms and thus neutralize their harmful effects. Therefore, antioxidants are your body cell’s guardian angels against disease
Where do antioxidants come from? They are found in fruits and vegetables as well as nuts, oils, beans and berries. World Health Organizations (WHO) recommends that we eat at least 5 Fruits and 5 Vegetables a day in order to achieve optimum health. Insufficient vitamin intake is apparently a cause of chronic diseases. Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diets alone. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is an imbalanced gut microbiome and parasites.
A deficiency of vitamin or mineral will cause a body part to malfunction and eventually break down – and, like dominos, other body parts will follow.”

Not all supplements are beneficial. They must be absorbed by your body. As you can see from the x-ray, these supplements would do you no good. They are still undissolved in the colon!
If you choose to ignore our recommendations and take supplements, you should be monitored regularly to be sure you are absorbing them. REMEMBER, SUPPLEMENTS NOT REPLACE EATING a good diet of 9-13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day—they are the “supplements” we take to bridge the gap between what we eat and what we need.
This x-ray supports just ONE of the many reasons why DBM do not randomly supplement. The supplements we recommend are easily absorbed sub-lingually (under the tongue) or transdermally (through the skin), and are rarely recommended.
