The last two hundred years were particularly transformative for humanity. Dramatic increases in both longevity and wealth swept across the globe, affecting the industrialized nations first and the developing nations second. While a wide gap remains between the richest and the poorest nations, just about every nation is better off no than they were two short centuries ago.
A friend of mine sent this excellent presentation that depicts the statistics of this phenomenon in a creative and understandable way:
It’s no wonder that the largest charities in the world are looking to bring financial prosperity to the nations they serve. With higher incomes comes lower birth rates and improved longevity. Whether or not happiness follows these trends directly or inversely is debatable, but the point is that a nation’s wealth and the longevity of its citizens appear to be directly related.
Longevity and health, on the other hand, do not necessarily go hand in hand. You can be both extremely old and extremely ill. While longevity has improved dramatically, there is much more that we could be doing to improve health and subsequently, quality of life.
Many of the doctors served by the company I work for are finding that toxicity is no longer strictly intercellular. In fact, toxins are moving deeper and deeper into the cells of the modern body, a fact that presents great challenges to anyone seeking optimal health. Eating cleanly, exercising regularly, hydrating sufficiently and getting enough rest can go a long way, but the world – as a result of the industrial development that made the advances in longevity and wealth possible – is becoming increasingly toxic.
The good news is that the body does have the ability to rid itself of these xenobiotic squatters. With the right support, including the presentation of homeopathic sarcodes (which I’ve heard described as a “blueprint for healthy tissue”), the body can come to the point where it is in position to release the toxins that are likely stored so deeply out of self-preservation.
When the flow systems of the body are blocked for whatever reason, the body wisely, but dangerously (as it is a last resort) walls off and hides away that which normally would be expelled under less stressful circumstances. Helping guide a patient through a process of naturally-paced detoxification is an art and a science, and I would highly advise against unmonitored self-detoxification programs. They are often do more harm than anything.
I believe that we can create a world where health, longevity and wealth converge and become the norm rather than the exception. What about you?
