How we are totally destroying our Immune Systems.
(Be sure to check out the problem of Subclinical Infections and how they are an unknown and unrealized major threat to health).
Over 1/2 of the U.S. population is at high risk of debilitating
illness from infectious disease. Why?
History shows that in nearly every century, humankind is subject
to some form of infectious bacteria (microbe) that causes epidemics
of death and disease. We've all heard of Bubonic Plague, but look
at the 20th century alone and you will find several very alarming
outbreaks of infectious disease that have been and still are of
grave concern to our populations. In the early 1900's an outbreak
of the influenza virus was responsible for deaths that were in
the millions. Hospitals became temporary morgues and families
were devastated in very short periods of time. Currently we live
in fear of life-threatening viruses that have no known cure. The
eighties saw the rapid rise to infamy of the AIDS virus, the nineties
gave us Mad Cow disease, E. Coli outbreaks and the Gulf War Syndrome.
GERONTOLOGISTS AND OTHER SCIENTISTS ARE NOW WARNING OF THE
NEXT MAJOR THREAT TO OUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING . . . INFECTIOUS
H. Pylori, a common bacterium found in humans, is now shown to
be the major cause of stomach ulcers. More than 35% of adult Americans
are infected with this microbe. Dr. Floyd Dewhirst, molecular
biologist and dentist at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston states
that in one human mouth there is more individual bacteria than
the number of people on earth! According to leading medical journalist
Dr. Morton Walker, many "modern" diseases can be linked
to microbial infection such as bowel disease, Crohn's Disease,
ulcerative colitis, allergies, Chronic Fatigue and many more (a
partial list is provided at the end of this article).
For the last 20 years, we have been threatened by the various
degenerative diseases such as heart disease, atherosclerosis,
cancer, diabetes, etc. It's not that these are any less threatening,
it's just that we have become almost helpless to this new threat
with no real hope in sight! WHY?
Widespread use of antibiotics not only by the medical profession
but the extreme high levels of use by the livestock industry has
left many of us in the dangerous position of having increased
resistance to antibiotics. Each year over 16 million pounds of
anti-biotics are used in animal feed. If you eat beef, pork,
chicken, veal, etc., you are getting anti-biotics in your food
possibly every day! What happens if we need them and they
don't work? Not only that they won't work, but even more insidious
is the upset of the flora (good bacteria) balance in our intestinal
tract and destruction of good bacteria as well as bad. "Antibiotic"
means "against life." Can you imagine the constant
war going on in your gut as your food and lifestyle kill these
good organisms? Rather ironic that there is this double-edged
sword that may save lives but the way they are currently used,
will endanger lives. The flora in our intestinal tracts is commonly
known as our "second immune system." These friendly
microbes will attack dangerous bacteria that shouldn't be there.
But what if they are killed off inadvertently by antibiotic misuse?
Sounds bad, but it gets even worse. The new emerging threat that
could be hundreds of times worse than antibiotic resistance is
looming on the horizon. DESTRUCTION OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
There is a growing problem that is being fostered on the American
population by big drug companies. Something that we are bombarded
by each and every day. A totally illogical concept that is being
drilled into our psyches by the mass media of TV, radio, magazines,
billboards, you name it. Over half of our population already spends
more than 500 million dollars per year on these potentially devastating
products. What could possibly be this destructive? ANTACIDS!!!!
These chewable tablets, liquids or over the counter pills pose
the most imminent threat to tens of millions of users of these
seemingly harmless products. How can this be?? Here's the real
Why do people suffer from "acid indigestion?" What
is the reason that the stomach produces excess acid? Yes, our
diets are not the best and we don't chew our foods properly, but
what is missing from our food that would take the burden off of
our stomach and relieve the stress of digestion on the body and
at the same time provide excellent support to the immune system?
The answer is -- ENZYMES!!! These essential elements are
necessary for ALL chemical functions in the body including activating
various white blood cells in order for them to fight invaders
in our systems. But their primary function in our first line of
defense is to help the digestion in the upper portion of the stomach
so that when the chyme (partially digested food) reaches the lower
portion of the stomach, not as much hydrochloric acid is produced.
This totally ELIMINATES the need for antacids since a normal
amount of acid will be produced since the food has been digested
properly and completely. Also, most of our food that is cooked
or processed and contains no enzyme activity will rot and ferment
in the stomach causing acids to be formed along with gas, bloating,
discomfort and other symptoms of indigestion. Still, how is this
of paramount importance? Here's the key to this whole scenario.
Hydrochloric acid is our body's first line of defense against
orally ingested bacteria. If we use antacids, we neutralize
HCL and leave our bodies wide open to the ravages of all types
of bacteria. On a daily basis we ingest E. Coli and many other
toxic agents such as Chloridia, P. Pascidida, Influenza, Hepatitis
B., and hundreds more. Essentially one half of the population
is highly susceptible to all forms of infectious disease.
What would happen, for instance, if an anti-biotic resistant
strain of influenza were to take a foothold in the U.S.? It could
create a state of emergency that we would be powerless against.
What about the threat of terrorism in the U.S.? We now are aware
of the fact that many terrorist based countries are stockpiling
bacteriological weapons that can wipe out entire cities in days
simply by adding these toxic forms of bacteria to our water supplies!
Sound far-fetched? After nearly five years our government is finally
admitting that tens of thousands of our troops were indeed exposed
to low-level doses of chemical and bacteriological weapons
in the Gulf War. Just an incidental contact has created invalids
of thousands of previously healthy, robust soldiers.
What we must do is strengthen our immune systems since this is
our only real hope against the coming "Plagues of the 21st
Century." Children and the elderly are the most susceptible
to these problems. Children do not have properly developed immune
systems and the elderly have weakened immune function and reduced
HCL production since it begins to decrease after age 25. Do we
want our children and grandchildren to have a chance for a healthy
future or do we want to condemn them to living in the fear of
a simple germ becoming a deadly threat? Let's start by supplying
our bodies with enough enzymes to create normal, healthy
digestion and totally eliminate the word "antacids"
from our vocabulary.
Enzymes are the key to normal digestive function. If we ate all
of our food raw we would not need extra enzymes each day. This
is impractical for most and impossible for some. Cooking, microwaving,
steaming, canning and any kind of processing kills all of the
enzymes in our food. Also, carbonation (soda, beer, etc.) is deadly
since it too destroys enzymes that the body tries to produce.
Enzymes are so valuable to the body that they are one of the two
markers used by scientists to determine death in an animal or
organism. Brain function and enzyme activity. If you don't have
these -- you're dead! It is common in nature that when enzyme
activity ceases, death occurs.
Secondly, let's replenish and re-establish the ultra-important
"good" intestinal bacteria that has been almost completely
destroyed in most people. Ideally, we should have over three
pounds of favorable flora in our guts but most of us are lucky
if we have any. This can be easily done by using a full-spectrum
probiotic (meaning "in support of life") capsule taken
with meals to give us back our "Second Immune System"
and help us regain total health.
Let's take a test. See if you or a loved one may have weakened
immune function. Do you notice any of the following conditions?
Indigestion, constipation, fatigue, aching joints, gas, bloating
after eating, tiredness after eating, food allergies or sensitivities,
asthma, psoriasis and other skin problems, myalgias, memory losses,
shortness of breath, frequent colds or flu, chronic sickness;
these conditions could mean trouble in the very near future. The
problems are monumental and growing daily. Are there solutions
to The Plagues of the 21st Century? You bet there are!!
Following is an outline for improving your immune function and
greatly decreasing your chances of contracting one of the killer
diseases waiting impatiently for your weakened, defenseless system.

Immune Dysfunction is an extremely serious problem. If people
do not do something to help their immune function, they will be
likely candidates for major degenerative condition (heart disease,
atherosclerosis, cancer, etc.) and will be helpless to fend off
bacteriological infections (microbes). We feel that you should
have enough information on this subject to make an informed decision.
Here are some of the latest books written on this subject. I think
you'll agree we all need to act now to protect ourselves and our
