What’s wrong with conventional medicine?
There’s a huge gap between research and the way doctors practice. Most physicians suppress symptoms of illness with drugs and do not discover the deep, underlying causes of illness.
What are lifestyle diseases?
These diseases appear with more frequency as people live longer. They are also associated with living in industrialized societies. Examples of lifestyle diseases:
- asthma in children caused by parental tobacco smoking
- hardening of the arteries caused by the types of food we eat combined with prolonged stress
- diseases caused by highly processed food, genetically modified food (GMO) and poor diet
- diseases related to alcohol, overworking, emotional stress, lack of exercise & poor sleep
- Other preventable lifestyle diseases include:
|Alzheimer’s disease||metabolic syndrome||obesity|
|extreme allergies||recurring infections||COPD|
How Does the Environment Affect My Health?

Can Genes Cause Chronic Diseases?
Genes play a role in the regulation of your body functions. However, genes do not always express or turn-on. It is important to remember that your lifestyle and your environment can determine which genes are expressing.
