Ever since plants and animals evolved from smaller plants and animals thousands of years ago, humans have been facing a vicious onslaught of horrible diseases and nutritional deficiencies. It's incredible how far mankind has come since the days of the dinosaurs, but at the same time it's astounding how we haven't all kicked the bucket.
According to the International Meeting of Interested Nutritionopathists, there are literally millions of imbalances, insufficiencies and other nutrition based ailments that could potentially smite us at any time. Despite this, humanity continues to succeed, especially in America where life expectancy rates keep increasing, even for liberals. But don't start slapping each other on the tuckus just yet. The Global Burden of Disease Study conducted in 2010 showed that the number of deaths over age 70 had risen to 43% worldwide, from 33% just 20 years prior. But why are more and more old folks dying every year?
It's because of all the diseases that people can have without even knowing? But why don't more people know? Could it be because of all the egghead fathead medical doctors in their ivory towers who only know about unnatural synthetic drugs, radiation and surgery?
Recognizing these diseases and treating them with the appropriate use of plant and animal parts requires a fully apprenticed Nutritionopathist. If every man, woman and child over the age of 65 received the care they deserved, who knows how much longer we could live. 115 years? Maybe longer or not.
Here is my list of the most common hidden diseases that I've encountered in my career of practice. These deadly maladies often go undetected, sometimes for decades. Many are never even diagnosed and must be assumed. I'll also throw in a few tips on how to prevent or cure them using the natural healing powers of Nutritionopathy.
1. Botulance - Gas is never normal. Only a fully apprenticed Nutritionopath can tell if your uncomfortable bloating is being caused by botulance, which is the number one cause of death and often mimics other causes of death like heart disease and cancer.
2. Oxygen deficiency - Did you know that most water is only 1/3 oxygen? Your vital innards need oxygen to function. Make sure that at least half of the atoms in your water are oxygen.
3. Cerebral Spinal Fluid Inspissation (CSFI) - Thickened spinal fluid makes the brain foggy and slows signals to the organs. A number of famous celebrities have died from this and drug overdoses.
4. Bricklayer's Fever - Fever is commonly associated with severe illness and even death. But what if your fever doesn't result in a rise in measurable body temperature. It could smolder for years without detection by medical doctors. Only a fully apprenticed practitioner of Nutritionopathy can make the diagnosis and provide appropriate treatment.
If you are waiting on science and medical doctors to sort this out, it may be too late. You can't diagnose and cure a condition if you don't know about it. So while you are thinking about ways to improve your life in 2014, consider making the switch to Nutritionopathy. My resolutions are less gristle, more tapioca and making a new friend here at the home. It's just not the same around here since Larry passed.
If you have questions about Nutritionopathy, write them on a self-addressed stamped envelope and send to Mitch Rangler at @TheHealthPatrol. You can also sign up for his newsletter which he will write and mail out once he has access to the mimeograph in the basement.
I'm an old school reporter whose days of scoring double trucks are well behind him. But that doesn't mean I don't know a good story when I see one. I've worked for small town rags and big city broadsheets and everything in between.
