I’m blessed to know that I can go day after day, walking and standing in line for as much as 15 hours without any serious difficulty, even at the young age of 63. I do have to admit that returning to a normal life of caring for patients without having to run from one attraction to the next is greatly appreciated.
What amazed me most was the increasing number of people in motorized conveyances. I’m not at all against this wonderful technology, since it’s allowed many to enjoy aspects of life which they couldn’t previously participate in.
What’s most troubling is to see whole families, grossly overweight, with both mom and dad having to fully rely on these devices to get around. This suggests there’s something common Within the family that doesn’t fall into the genetic category which is setting them and their kids up for this kind of obesity. Frequently, seeing what they were eating and drinking told the rest of the story. Witnessing this breaks my heart. Either these people don’t have access to the kind of healthcare information capable of freeing them from dependance on these contraptions, or they just don’t care. Personally, I find it difficult to believe they don’t care. I just feel they haven’t found anyone who’s given them any hope of recovery.
With this kind of obesity, and the resulting lack of exercise created by reduced mobility, the complications which can result are huge, and contributes much to what’s breaking the bank in our healthcare system.
I so wished I could take them all home and get them started on the purification program I’ve come to rely so heavily on in my practice. This program has the ability to remove obstacles to health and begin restoration and rebuilding of the entire system.
Since I wasn’t available in my office for a few days, the inevitable occurred. A loved one, (not yet a patient) suffered a warning stroke. Attempts were made to contact me, and eventually contacted me through my receptionist and my cell phone. This is when I got the rest of the story.
What I wasn’t aware of in this person’s history was previous encounters with gout, blood pressure, and cholesterol elevation. Underlying problems aren’t always visible, as seen in the obesity I saw in Disneyland, and since this individual is not overweight it’s easy to assume they don’t deal with health challenges. Sometimes, what’s seen by the naked eye can be deceptive.
In dealing with a condition of gout, there’s an inflammatory aspect which can initiate increased cholesterol production by the liver. When uric acid is elevated in the bloodstream, fluid accumulation in the vascular system creates a hydraulic response raising blood pressure. The inflammatory component creates damage to the lining of arteries resulting in a build-up of plaques which may eventually impede blood flow, leading to stroke or heart attack.
Ignoring gout or just using the drug Allopurinol to turn off the inflammation isn’t getting to the foundation of the problem. Granted, Allopurinol does limit inflammation, but the cause goes un-treated. Frequently, there’s a digestive disorder connected to this condition, disturbing protein digestion, thus resulting in overloaded liver and kidney clearance.
Besides uric acid being a major part of this overload, other organic compounds add to the purine overload. This includes caffeine, adenosine, and guanine. Adenine and guanine make up nucleic acids like DNA and RNA. Interference in digesting and utilizing these can affect our very make-up. This can even initiate genetic disruption.
Since caffeine is in this mix, increased intake with poor clearance impacts inflammation in the body. Caffeine clearance is dependent on vitamin B-6, just like estrogen clearance. This water soluble B-vitamin is one of the most neglected, and is directly linked to carpel tunnel syndrome. Gout is just one aspect of the many diseases which can be safely treated naturally.
Evaluating your health and assisting you in being the best you can, is my heart’s desire.
