Why We're So Sick and What to Do About It

Underlying Causes
First we need to understand Why We're So Sick, then we can learn What We Can Do About It.

The fundamental reason why so many Americans are sick and dying is due to immune weakness. We can’t create a healthy population by trying to kill off pathogens (we’ve tried that). We can only do it by strengthening the immune system. There are many ways to do that. 

Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, decades ago, made the assertion that over 75% of our diseases are caused by nutritional and lifestyle factors (bad habits, wrong foods, junk foods, toxic chemicals). We all have the choice to change our habits, and we really would if we truly knew the dangers to ourselves and our children. Everyone was willing to make drastic lifestyle changes by staying home and social distancing. If we brought that same commitment to reducing destructive lifestyle factors, we could potentially reduce medical expenditures in the USA by 80 to 90%.

Could We Eliminate Pandemics By Creating a Second Immune System?
The recent Covid-19 crisis and all future viral pandemics may be remedied if we looked at something President Trump said from a different perspective. 

President Trump suggested that perhaps we could use some kind of "disinfectant" to kill the COVID-19 virus internally. I’ve seen several mainstream media (NBC) broadcasts criticizing the President for his suggestion. But could he be right? Could we eliminate viral pathogens directly?

Actually, the idea is right, but the term “disinfectant” is not the right terminology, because most disinfectants are toxic. But he has the right idea, his thinking is correct. We just need an antiviral that does not harm human cells, something that would give us a second immune system.

There is such an antiviral-antibacterial solution that is safe for both internal and external use. The best option is colloidal silver at 10-20 ppm with a particle size of .015 µm or less. Colloidal silver is a broad spectrum antiviral, antibacterial that can be:

  1. Inhaled into the lungs (using an atomizer or nebulizer, a mesh nebulizer is best),
  2. Used to irrigate the sinuses (small amount added to mild saltwater nasal wash),
  3. Sprayed into the eyes, or added to a saltwater eyewash,
  4. Taken internally (orally), and
  5. Injected intravenously.

I personally have used it in all these ways (except injection) for over 30 years. I have nearly 50 years experience in natural healthcare. I never get sick. I never get flus or colds. I’m 74 years old (2020). It has been used to cure malaria and other viral diseases. Over 650 pathogens have been tested. No known pathogen survives is the presence of colloidal silver produced by the method in the link below "Make Your Own Colloidal Silver."

Here are two research articles to consider:

Proof of Effectiveness Against SARS Viruses
According to Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, Lauderhill, Florida: "…A study at the University of Arizona recently showed ionic silver to be effective against the coronavirus that researchers use as the surrogate for SARS."

COVID19 is a SARS virus. According to a Business Wire article about the study: The study tested various ionic silver levels to determine if they were effective against the human coronavirus strain 229E (a common surrogate for the SARS virus in laboratory research). The research demonstrated a 90% reduction in virus levels within the first hour, and a 99.99% reduction within 24 hours.

According to previous researchers, this approach is valid for all flu viruses, malaria, and bacterial infections like pneumonia and tuberculosis.

Make Your Own Colloidal Silver
In an earlier post to this blog I provided this potential solution to all infectious pandemics:
1) https://rebuildhealth.com/colloidal-silver-natural-diy-antibiotic-antiviral

Study this method. It's simple. It's possible to produce colloidal silver for less than $1 per gallon. I make it for my family whenever we need it. Only a few teaspoons or tablespoons are needed per dose (avoid metal utensils). Could the world be free of pandemics, at practically no cost? Yes, it's possible.

Also, there is a link to a simple anti-inflammatory that is said to be superior to all known drugs. It can also help. All conditions that end with "itis" are inflammatory. Inflammation is usually the precursor to all serious diseases. You can find the recipe here.

The COVID-19 Pandemic is Over
For more information on COVID, see The Pandemic is Over  https://rebuildhealth.com/pandemic-over

We need to work together to heal our country by taking one step further. Think about the following.

The Failure of Conventional Medicine
Just ask any medical doctor if they know how to cure the following diseases (CDC Statistics – Disease: Annual Deaths),

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
  • Diabetes: 83,564
  • Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633

(These are the diseases that are killing our people and wrecking our economy.)

The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back
The viral flu pandemics that occur every year infect 30-45 million people. Typically, about 50,000 people die. In 2020, the death rate appears higher because of how COVID-19 deaths are counted. According to Dr. Deborah Birx, of the Coronavirus Task Force, "The intent is, right now, if someone dies with COVID-19, we're counting that as a COVID-19 death."  According to the CDC, most COVID-19 deaths have, "on average, 2.5 additional conditions or causes per death." In actual fact, only 7% of fatalities occur where COVID-19 was the ONLY cause mentioned. There could even be co-morbidities that were not mentioned or known, but still existed. This means that we are blaming the straw for breaking the camel's back. The real cause of pandemic coronavirus flu deaths is the damaging weight of multiple degenerative diseases.

The Medical System Can't Help Us
If there is one thing we have learned from this most recent pandemic, it's that the medical system can't cure us. Medical doctors will tell you straight up that they don’t know how to fully cure any of the degenerative diseases. They not only can’t cure corona viruses, they rarely cure any of the above listed diseases! And all these diseases are increasing exponentially! The medical and pharmaceutical system focuses on expensive treatments that rarely cure any diseases (diabetes, for example). What can we conclude from this? We need to be honest. There's only one conclusion: When it comes to degenerative and viral diseases, the Western medical system is a catastrophic failure. Western medicine can work for pain reduction, reconstructive surgery, and bacterial antibiotics (which are rapidly becoming less effective due to bacterial mutations). In some areas Western medicine is miraculous, but generally, for degenerative and viral diseases, it's a complete failure. Medical doctors are aware of this failure because they see it daily. They just don't have solutions.

There is an increasing number of doctors, nurses, and pharmacists who realize this failure and are looking more seriously at natural remedies. All the doctors and nurses I have met have good hearts and are so dedicated. They want to help. They work long hours, sometimes 12 hour days (which would be illegal in any other profession). It's just that they have not been given the tools that will help with degenerative or viral diseases. For example, natural remedies like Artemisia Annua tea (sweet wormwood) quickly cures malaria and cost practically nothing. It grows right where it's needed. It's unfortunate that doctors are only taught drugs and surgery.

Medical intervention may make us feel better with painkillers (often opioids), but we are dying prematurely and unnecessarily. The medical system can't cure viral or degenerative diseases like cancer. Since the inauguration of the War on Cancer in 1970, we’ve spent over $200 billion on cancer research. The result has been an exponential increase in cancer. Total failure. There’s a reason for this.

Look at the chart below. For the past one hundred years something has been going horribly wrong.
One out of every 33 children is now born with birth defects! This is an unconscionable tragedy, another expanding pandemic. Degenerative diseases have been increasing exponentially.

Something is Horribly Wrong - birth defects and more

During this same time frame, the nutritional density of our food supply has been decreasing precipitously.
Examine the chart below. It shows the decrease in common minerals in our foods, caused by soil deterioration, mostly caused by poisons. 

Destruction of Our Soils

The nutritional quality of our food has dropped dramatically over the past 100 years. That's why the taste is gone. Current nutritional density is a tiny fraction of what it once was. A carrot is not a carrot, they're not all the same!  A carrot grown using non-toxic, biological agriculture can have as much as 200 times more nutrition (polyphenols) than a conventionally-grown carrot and up to 100 times more than an organic carrot. (See Bionutrient.org) You could eat one or two carrots at a meal, but you can’t eat 200 carrots! Polyphenols and other immune-strengthening nutritional phytochemicals are needed to fend off diseases.

Biological Agriculture to the Rescue
We can get a temporary fix for viral diseases with colloidal silver. It can give us a second immune system, but the real solution for all diseases is to increase the nutritional density of our food supply. For that, we need a new agricultural system based upon plant nutritional strength rather than agricultural poisons.

Biological agriculture is far superior to organic because it restores missing minerals to the soil. It is also non-toxic. It’s way better than conventional, because it massively restores biological life to our dead commercial soils. Plus, it’s cheaper than both. It can make farming extremely profitable. It can save our family farms. It can restore our national immunity. The new agricultural system already exists and the new non-toxic natural healthcare system already exists. I wrote about it in my book, “Extraordinary Healthcare.”

The EPA lists over 85 thousand toxic chemicals. These were created by chemical engineers who are not really aware of the life damaging effects of their creations. Farmers use many of these toxic chemicals. In so doing, they destroy the life in the soil. When they destroy soil life, they unknowingly destroy human health. These poisons directly affect us by their toxicity and indirectly by dramatically reducing the nutritional quality of our food supply. Just as we need to create a new medical system based upon human immune strength rather than medical drugs (with poisonous side effects), we need to radically transform our agricultural system if we are to survive and thrive. Toxic chemicals destroy life — human life, the life of our pets, wildlife, birds, pollinators, soil life, all life.

Anyone who cares about people or cares about the world should study the links above and my book, "Extraordinary Healthcare."
We can turn this country around. We can make it greater than it has ever been.

In summary, from a physiological point of view, the reason we are so sick physically and so disturbed mentally and emotionally is due to our unnatural, toxic, processed-food diet and our highly toxic, nutrient-deficient agricultural system. These two factors have devastated our immune system, made us weak and sickly. It has severely impacted our mental and emotional health.

Action Steps

1) Learn to make your own natural antiviral, antibiotic colloidal silver by following this link  https://rebuildhealth.com/colloidal-silver-natural-diy-antibiotic-antiviral -- Read the articles I suggested above. In my experience, it is perfectly safe and easy to make. I've researched it and personally used it for over three decades. Users say it can give you a second immune system while you restore your deeper immunity with better nutrition.

2) Learn to Care for Your Own Health
If there's one thing we've learned from this recent pandemic, it's that our medical system does not have the knowledge and methods to help us. It's a proven failure for all viral and degenerative diseases. We need to expand our healthcare options. Read the book, "Extraordinary Healthcare." Learn about natural, regenerative approaches to health. Eat real healthy food, not processed junk. Prepare your own meals from scratch. Find a mineral-vitamin supplement you like to provide the missing minerals and vitamins that are no longer in our food supply. Still, no supplement can provide all the minerals and phytonutrients we need. Go to step three.

3) Our commercial agricultural system has failed us. For nutrition, our current food supply is the worst it's ever been. I've tested everything we've brought home from the markets, both conventional and organic. Practically all of it is devoid of the nutrition we need to be healthy. The solution: Grow a no-till, non-toxic, biological-agriculture garden and tell the growers in your area about it. Read the recommended books and watch the video resources at bionutrient.org and on their YouTube channel. Add rock dusts to your soil to provide the missing minerals. Inoculate your soil with probiotic bacterial and fungal inoculants. Always keep  your soil covered with mulch or cover crops. Study the resources at bionutrient.org.

If you have no soil, start a community garden near your home. Understand that organically grown food also has severe mineral and phytonutrient deficiencies due to soil mineral deficiencies and excessive nitrogen applications (manure). Not everyone has the time or ability to grow the food their family needs. We can't all become subsistence farmers. Get the growers in your area creating healthy, nutrient-dense food. You are in control of your environment. Learn to care for it. Especially, stop supporting and buying toxic products. Forward this article to friends and family, to farmers, to your congressional representatives, to your social networks, and to your local health departments. Let's care for ourselves, others, and the environment we depend upon for life.
