(NaturalHealth365) Do you believe that doctors have your best interests in mind – when giving you advice? Or, are they just worried about lawsuits and getting paid by your insurance company? Many people believe that our “modern” healthcare system is built on lies by teaching us that only drugs will save our lives. Obviously, we aren’t being told everything.
Big Pharma distorts the science about whole food nutrition
Many of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars per year to influence the decisions you and your doctor make about health issues. Consumers are deceived through media advertising campaigns and drug reps lobby lawmakers in Washington, D.C. (and throughout the world) to support the false notion that drugs are better than a whole foods diet for disease prevention. And, the truth is, that’s nonsense!
The University of Minnesota Medical School researchers have collaborate with the School of Public Health and found an enzyme, which found at high levels and alongside low levels of HDL (good cholesterol) that dramatically reduces the risk of cardiovascular events.
Does western medicine even read its own journals?
The enzyme known as glutathione peroxidase or GPx3 is a natural antioxidant found in whole foods, which helps protect us from oxidative injury and at the same time heals the body naturally. In fact, it is one of the most important antioxidant enzymes for human beings. And, if doctors would just look it up in the literature – they would understand.
Jonathan L. Holtzman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of pharmacology and medicine within the University of Minnesota Medical School said: “In our study, we found that people with high levels of GPx3 enzyme were six times less likely to develop cardiovascular disease than people with low levels of both.” What this says is GPx3 mitigates the detrimental effect of low HDL levels.
Fire your doctor – if you’re NOT happy with your results
The combination of low HDL and low GPx3 affects about 50 million people, which is one in four adults in the United States alone. So, clearly, a poor diet and lifestyle is behind many of the fatal heart attacks and strokes in the western world. Don’t get me wrong – conventional medicine has its value in modern society – but in order to help more people – they will need to learn more about the benefits of whole food nutrition.
Glutathione peroxidase (GPX) is actually found in almost all fruits and vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, spinach, tomato, watermelon and avocado, it increases the body’s natural glutathione, an antioxidant and immune booster. If the truth be known – the list of vegetables would read like a novel and also include acorn squash, cantaloupes, orka, oranges, peaches, potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, Kale and parsley. And, of course, organic (locally-grown) is always a better choice over conventional produce.
Is a raw food diet necessary?
One of the arguments for a raw food diet is that cooking destroys a good portion of the glutathione. Steaming and raw are the way to keep the glutathione intact, also, eating foods high in glutamine, such as lean grass fed meats, eggs, wheat germ and whole grains, can also stimulate the liver to produce more glutathione. Have you ever asked your doctor about their diet?
Why outsource our health to drug companies, when we can significantly reduce our chances of ill health by implementing a whole food diet. What are your favorite (super) foods for disease prevention? Post your comments below.
