Could it be "Germs &
We were once told that we get sick
because we catch a germ or some sort of bacteria. Then we were
told that we needed antibiotics and that they would cure all our
illness, sickness and diseases. However, the antibiotics had to
become stronger and stronger over the years and even at that,
we continued to become sicker and sicker as a nation!
Next we were told that it
was viruses that were making us all sick. So we begged our
doctors for more and more antibiotics because we were told, or
sold, for such a long time that they would help us feel better.
We did get more of our prescriptions filled, but later it was
found that antibiotics have no effect on viruses. In fact, it was
reported that the overuse of antibiotics was posing a serious health
threat to our country! The government estimates that half of the one
hundred million antibiotic prescriptions sold each year are
Today we are now being told that we get
sick because of genetic defects, and once again, more drugs are
being researched to help us from getting these genetic defects. This
is all really good for the drug companies; they have more
repeat customers today than any business could ever dream of having
and their customer base continues to grow every year.
The drug business is big business. Most
people use more than one of their drug products and will continue to
do so the rest of their lives! Then, as they use the first one, it causes
side effects which then call for additional drugs which call for
additional drugs again etc. I know some people who are on over 16
different drugs that they take everyday and even at that level, they
are still really sick!!
To top this all off, the
government even helps to pay the drug companies with our
tax money so that they remain in profit and continue to
charge these unbelievable high prescription cost. Even
when we try to go to a different country to save some money on these
drugs, they block that as well to keep all the profits in their own
pockets. So it does not seem that drugs are the answer to
keeping us from getting sick for there is too much money to be
earned from them by us staying sick. They seem to
making more and more people sicker than ever
Think about it, would a drug company
really want to find a cure so that we would not need to take any
more of their drugs? There really
is no incentive for them to do this because it would
cost them such a large loss in profit if they ever did
find a cure. No business that I know of would invest a lot
of money and take a lot of risk just to find ways that would
cause them to lose a lot of money. Watch the
drug commercials that are becoming the norm today. They want
you to use these forever, even asprin as a way to prevent heart
attacks. Question: Is your body deficient in
So the answer does not seem to be
coming from the drug companies as to why we are more sicker today
than yesterday, nor will it ever come from them. But we
continue to get sicker than ever before in history. So,
what is going on here? Someone is sure getting better here but
it is not the consumers!
So, Do We Catch Something?
Well think about this. Do we catch
cancer? What about diabetes, obesity, heart disease, fibromyalgia,
arthritis, PMS, MS, impotence, headaches, heartburn, acid reflux,
jaw pain, and so on and so on? Do we catch these or develop them?
Think about animals. They don't get
cancer, diabetes, arthritis, or virtually any other human disease or
sickness, except when they are in captivity. When they are
under human care and eat processed food, get vaccine
injections, drugs, and other things we as humans get, they become
sick, just like us! Interesting isn't it?
Look at different cultures around the
world where the people never had cancer or heart disease. Then,
when these people start living a western lifestyle, they get sick,
overweight, and begin to develop all the common diseases we hear
about today. Why?
It looks like we are the cause of
us getting sick. The problem is not that we catch something,
for there will always be something out there to
catch in our air, water and food. The question is this; is
your body ready for it when it happens? There are things we can do today to keep
ourselves healthy so that we have the best chance to keep from
developing or catching anything.
But it can be very confusing when you start to look for
We are told all kinds of things in the
news about what makes us sick; some true, and some not
true. But what makes it really confusing is that what we hear
changes all the time. They simply contradict themselves over
and over again. We are first told to drink diet soda drinks because
they are better for us compared to regular soda. Then, when we
do, and the food companies make their millions, we are then told of
the chemicals in these diet drinks and how bad they are for us. We
are then told it is better to drink bottled water.
When sales of bottled
water reached their highest profit, even to the point they had
us paying $2 a bottle from a vending machine instead of enjoying a
free drink at a water fountain, we were then told that bottle water
is the same as tap water except for the taste. This same thing
happened with low fat, low carb, low everything foods. The food
companies make out, the drug companies do great, health care cost
continues to go through the roof, doctors are always busy and yet,
we continue to get sicker than ever before!
So it looks like there are two reasons
why we get sick:
"catch" something. We come into contact with a germ,
generally a virus or bacteria from somewhere. Food, water, air,
other people? We can catch something from all of these but the point
is, we will always catch something.
"develop" an illness or disease. This happens
because there is something out of balance in the body, something is
not working the way it should be and was designed to work and
so we develop an illness or disease such as cancer, diabetes,
catch something because something or someone else first had it to
give to us. We will always be exposed to bacteria and viruses on a
daily basis even when we don't expect it, such as when we eat
out at a restaurant. If you ever watch the news, you know what has
already happened many times in the food chain. So we get exposed to
things every day.
If someone in your home or office has
the flu, then every single person has been exposed to and "caught"
the flu virus. But not everyone will come down with the
flu. Look at what happened when anthrax was discovered
in envelops being mailed a few years ago. Only some became ill
from the anthrax! So we will always have to live with that
threat but, are we ready when it happens?
since there is no getting around this one, our bodies must be
in a good healthy condition when we do come into contact with these
germs and bacteria. If we are in good health at the time
we are exposed, we would never even know we caught something. Our
Creator has already given each of us this built-in
So the only other thing there is left
as to why we are getting sick is because we developed
something. This is something that we can also control to a
certin point if we want to. I guess you know where this Shaklee
distributor is going with this, "Prevention".
When I was first introduced to Shaklee
products 25 years ago, my upline said, "How would you like to feel
better?" I said, " I feel fine." She then said, "How would
you like to feel even better"? I said, "I don't believe
supplements work". She continued and said. "How would you like
to feel better?" I guess
feeling better would not be the very best way to explain why a
person would want to consider using Shaklee products today.
Maybe you already feel good so why would you be interested in
I think a much better way to ask this
question in today’s world would be something like: "If
there was a way for you to increase your chances of not getting
sick, would you want to know about it?" Who would not want to
keep from getting sick? Would they say, "No, I would rather increase
my chances of getting sick." Well, some might, at least based
on their actions.
But that's what Shaklee products can do
for you. They supplement your diet with the missing amounts of
nutrients that were, at one time in history, in the food supply
that you eat. By feeding the body the food it needs to function on,
it will become a stronger human shield against these germs
and bacteria. This way you will have the best chance of
not developing a disease.
When we were told to cut down on fats,
it did not mean to go out and eat low fat processed foods. The food
companies want you to believe this for that is why the low fat
labels sprung up so fast. Look at what happen shortly after low
carbs was introduced as the newest fad.
The ideal thing to do, is what we could
always do, and continue to do even today. Eat
fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean
meats, poultry and dairy. But the most important thing to do today, is to
be sure to use a good basic nutritional program, just in case you
fall short in any of these food groups on any given day, which
seems to be all of us. Using a nutritional plan
today is like having life
insurance in case you die. But in this case, it is health
insurance, in case you live!
