What do you intend?

Welcome to the world of highly-processed, genetically-modified, chemically-induced, pharmaceutically-treated so-called food that most individuals consume as a majority of their Standard American Diet (SAD).

In a world where disease is main cause of death, it's not really a surprise that most of disease is caused by how our body responds to the environment it's subject to; both internally and externally. The internal health of our body depends on having a fully-functioning immune system, equally operational digestive system, and access to an array of high-quality nutrients from the foods we eat. It's easy to think that we could just pop a pill or take an over-the-counter drug to induce the kind of internal health we'd love to have in order to prevent disease, but realistically that's not how our body was designed to function. In our fast-growing modern society due to societal revolutions much of our external environment has become quite toxic. Not only to humans but rather all life including the planet itself.
With the ever-increasing disarray of environmental pollutants driven from consumer-profited corporations our external environment, our land, has become increasingly depleted from nutrients and our waters unsuitable for consumption, much of this reflected in the food and water we consume as well as the air we breath. This more-less forms the foundation to what makes a toxic environment. When we are exposed to our environment we put our body in a state of constant stress for counteracting the acid-forming pollution that we breath, drink, and eat. Toxins put a stress on our body, not just the liver and lymphatic system, but rather our entire biological processes. There is a lot we can do to reduce our toxic-load induced from our external environment including how we expose ourselves to some of the more harmful toxins that exist inside our very home, see "10 Ways To Reduce Toxins Found In The Home".
What is most important to understand here is how these environmental pollutants affect our internal environment, our biological processes and therefor our ability to prevent disease. When our food system becomes polluted and nutrient deficient, when we consume a majority of processed and genetically modified foods, when much of our diet is acid-forming, when our immune system is deficient or even non-existent, we are significantly compromising our ability to coexist in the already toxic environment we are surrounded by. We not only cannot thrive, we cannot survive. What's more is that a majority of American's have accepted this fate as their own, believing in a hopeless manifest that subjects their life to a certain fate with names of: heart disease, type II diabetes, obesity, allergies, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, insulin resistance syndrome cardiovascular disease, MS, Chron's disease, autoimmune disease, Schizophrenia, and cancer (to name only a handful). We've also decided to accept a slough of symptoms as part of this normalcy to life such as depression, anxiety, acne, ADHD, arthritis, heartburn, indigestion, IBS, asthma, high blood pressure, constipation, premenstrual tension, insomnia, fatigue, diarrhea, panic attacks, headaches, fungal infections, bacteria infections, yeast infections, eczema, cold sores, hives, memory loss, and most any other kind of symptom that can be labeled without direct diagnosis of a thereby associated disease.
With all the toxins we are exposed to in both our external and internal environment,
it's truly useless to assume that a pill could possibly hope to help us out of this predicament.

Perhaps, if anything it may pose as a potential to cure the 'head' of a signature symptom by simple means of a 'placebo effect' as there is always a psychological 'cure' to be had. Unfortunately, this may only act to suppress certain symptoms whereabouts unveiling others yet to come. Pills don't heal, they may help, but they do not heal. What heals, what aids in repairing damage, is addressing the larger issue beneath the surface-the quality of food we consume on a daily basis. The silent plague that slowly works its way to destroy our bodies and our minds lies within the quality of food we consume. Consuming poor quality food, food that is nutrient deficient or laden with chemicals and pesticides wreaks havoc on our organs and immune system. It decreases our ability to absorb nutrients, interferes with digestion, modifies gene expression, and lowers immune system function.
Chemicals and inedible substances in our food supply cause poor food quality
and have created an epidemic of disease in the human body.

Nature gives us two forces to contend with: the process of change , called succession; and the constant attempt to return to stability, or homeostasis. These occur in our inner as well as our outer worlds.  When we continue to make decisions that effect the body, there is a succession of change.  This cause and effect results in a host of problems, but what we later experience resulting in disease.  It is at the stage that we recognize that these conditions or symptoms we are experiencing are no longer acceptable that we decide to make changes in order to move back to a state of stability.  For example,  when we choose to consume loads of sugar on a daily basis, we may recognize symptoms of what we know to be a 'sugar rush' followed by a 'sugar crash'.  We feel the highs and experience the lows.  Similarly we also experience this with caffeine.  Both cause a reaction in our body to release hormones of adrenaline which we experience as a 'rush' of energy (depending on the stage of adrenal exhaustion).  When we do this for an extended period of time, coupled by whatever other decisions we are also making in conjunction with the sugar consumption the result is disease.  Disease was on the rise, but if we get to disease it was because we didn't make the necessary changes to prevent that disease from the natural succession  What's most important is the choices we make in our diet to sustain our livelihood and counteract the modern succession of disease. 

Disease is not inevitable as most people have accepted as a fact of life.  This 'acceptance' is merely a factor of life that has been broadcasted as the ultimate consequence of being alive, by media influences and health professionals.  It is NOT a fact of life, it is a choice.  Recognize the 'accepted' portion of this diagnosis.  Disease is accepted as a fact.  If it's accepted, then so it will be.  If we do not 'accept' this to be our fate, we have choices.  Some reading this will want to argue 'genetics' and other factors we are born with.  First, in the case of genetics as a pre-determined factor of a genetic code plays a factor but it plays a factor just as much as epigenetics plays a factor in which the turning on and turning off of genes can be altered by environmental/lifestyle factors.  The second, is a consequence of genetic factors that took place before birth and is not a disease, but a consequence of life.  Not all life is treated equally and not all diseases are a curse.   When we are given the gift of life, we are blessed regardless of how we are born.  What we do with that gift determines our path on this plane of existence.  For example, take for instance Helen Keller.  She was born both blind and deaf, although challenging, she was able move beyond these physical genetic challenges and became a political activist, author, and lecturer.  These disabilities did not stop her from living her life.  Alternatively, if you were born with a genetic predisposition, e.g., the gene for breast cancer BRCA1 and BRCA2 that does not mean you're destined to get breast cancer, it means you have a gene that you can turn on or off determinant of your lifestyle choices.  Not everyone knows this and many have fallen victim to breast cancer because they were never educated to understand how life factors play a role in turning on and off these genes.  If you live with chronic stress, eat a diet full of sugar, and have a sendentary lifestyle, the chances are high that you are going to turn on the gene for breast cancer.  When this occurs, this also doesn't mean that you can't make changes to create homeostasis in your body to remove the tumors naturally.  There are many ways to go about this, but without going down the cancer rabbit hole too much, let's just say that epigenetics is affected by lifestyle and dietary choices.  Let's also say that the choices we make also provide opportunity for healing and treating disease naturally as well as preventing disease from occurring.  There are varying degrees to which we can take to make these changes and reach homeostasis.  This pathway, is a journey and it's one that I've worked very extensively at in creating the INT Level Program.  This program is designed to help the body reach the optimal place of homeostasis and is catered to each individual's specific wants, needs, and goals it is important to understand that the end goal for homeostasis is the same for all.
