Understanding the 'Totality' of the Immune System

natural immunity Dec 04, 2021
 

"It's in our iron grip to control nature, that she rejects us completely".

In this interview (the snippet video above is from the full episode 4 of the documentary series) this doctor explains how our immune system is part of the wider eco-system of the world... of nature.

If we want to stay healthy, we have to take into account that we are not separate from our environment or nature. 

Even though this information has been known for 30 years, it has not been revealed to most people. We have been kept in the dark, because it's not 'economical' (for a certain group of people) to have a 'health system' - instead we have been maintaining and perpetuating a 'dis-ease' system. 

In order to understand human health, we must understand the much bigger picture of how life works: we must understand our place in nature, because we are PART of nature, not separate from it.

Do You Know Your 'Slave Footprint'?

 

Do you know how many slaves have helped produce the products you use or consume? Are you up to speed with your 'modern slavery footprint'?

Most of us are familiar with the terms 'carbon footprint', 'sustainability', 'climate change'.

But are you up to speed with your 'modern slavery footprint'?

I attended a pretty mind-opening webinar recently on MODERN SLAVERY hosted by AIMA (the Australasian Integrative Medical Association) and The Blackmores Group Australia.

The purpose of the webinar was to bring more AWARENESS to the scale and consequences of modern slavery, with reference in particular to how the health and nutritional products we purchase track back to any slavery involved in their production. 

Do you know how many slaves have helped produce the products you use or consume?

Modern slavery is a very real thing which many of us, particularly in the western world, are fairly oblivious to. We may have heard of child labour and human...

The Old Breaks Down to Make Way for the New

As the saying goes, the only constant is change.

Right now we are experiencing enormous change in the world.

And no-where in the world is this change bigger than in healthcare.

Actually, this change has been going on for decades behind the scenes, but not everyone has been aware of it.

However, with more and more restrictions coming into healthcare, including patients even being refused access to dentists and doctors in some countries*, now more than ever it is essential we learn how to take care of our own health and wellbeing.

The good news, we have a lot more power to take control of our health than we have been taught.

I've been fortunate to learn this due to my own journey to find answers to chronic illness which doctors said they couldn't help me with.

This led me to search out alternative therapies and solutions, finally leading me to solutions.

Lifestyle Medicine is one of those solutions, and is a big part of my clinical practice with clients.

Dr. Pearl also offered a clear plan to save American (and global) healthcare.

Tackle Work Stress

Chronic stress has an incredibly damaging effect on our whole-body health.

Work is one of the most common sources of chronic stress. If your job is starting to wear on your mind and body, it might be time for a ...

Why A New Healthcare System Is On Its Way

 
Register Here for the Lifestyle Medicine Summit
One of the things we are seeing in the Western healthcare system right now, all around the world, is a crumbling of the old to make way for the new.
 
When things 'break down' it can feel bad, but at some point it is actually a necessary part of change, in order for something newer and better to be built.
 
This change happens in all areas of life because 'the only constant is change'. We are always growing and improving ourselves (hopefully) as a human race.

Why Now?

The healthcare system HAS to change because it's old (current) way of dealing with things is predominantly to have people believe that getting ill is normal, and that the solution is to manage / get rid of symptoms using (predominantly) medication or surgery.
 
This approach is called the 'ambulance at the bottom of the cliff'...

Why It's Time for a New Healthcare System

 
It is clear that the 'conventional' healthcare system is breaking down.
 
You only need to watch what is going on in New Zealand right now with the breakdown in the nursing situation to see how the system is crumbling before our very eyes.
 
Why is the system breaking down?
  • Because it's time.
  • Because it is not working.
  • Because (in most cases) it does not address the root cause of illness.

All over the world, patients are getting sicker and going bankrupt from medical bills.

Doctors are burning out and making dangerous mistakes.

According to a recent article, "In Quebec, the healthcare system is already on the brink of collapse because of a mass exodus of staff quitting the system... Some hospitals have already lost over 50% of their staff" (1).

Both parties blame our nation’s outdated and dysfunctional healthcare system. But that’s only part of the problem.

When former CEO of The Permanente Medical Group Robert Pearl (who led...
