Welcome to InflaNation! Where Industrial Diners and A Doc In The Box reign supreme! InflaNATION is the title of my upcoming book from which I’ll frequently be posting chapters on this site. The book, long overdue is fundamentally on preventive medicine but it goes much further than that.
We are a nation of INFLAMMATION which is where the title comes from. It turns out that inflammation is really at the heart (pun?) of nearly every disease in western society-they are the so called first world diseases or diseases of affluence. I should know I suffered from one of the very worst-heart disease. I had my first and only heart attack at age 42! At that time from the looks of how bad off I was I should easily be dead by now-but alas I’m not obviously. I can make the bold claim that I cured my heart disease through diet and lifestyle changes ONLY. I never used statins of other medications deemed so vital in the management of heart disease. I have the heart scan and labs to prove it as well. Those are pretty contentious words but I’ll back them up with enough data to convince even your seasoned internist-if he or she keeps and open mind.
For our discussion inflammation makes its deadly home in three main body “compartments” the endothelium: the lining of our blood vessels; the microglia: the immune cells of the brain and as ectopic fat: fat that abnormally deposits-like cancer metastasis-in the abdominal organs. These are The Three Amigos of inflammation that I discuss in great detail.
In order to be healthy or recover from a disease you need to be aware of certain things in our environment that powerfully generate the above types of inflammation. These will make you sick, keep you sick or prevent recovery. We are talking about some pretty innocuous things like for example eating certain “heart healthy” foods, taking certain medications or drinking tap water. Huh? Yes, I devote a chapter to unraveling the hidden dangers of several of the worst municipal water additives like chlorine, fluoride and aluminum. Yes, there is aluminum in tap water too. Aluminum is highly inflammatory. It is also found in large amounts in vaccines and hundreds of other consumer products.
The Industrial Diner serves us our industrial foods, water, and products in this industrial age. The industrial Diner is a toxic diner. It’s essentially any modern supermarket (or restaurant) or what I like to occasionally refer to as Sick Food Stores as opposed to health food stores. Conversely, you can look at it from the consumer’s perspective: we are Industrial Diners-those who dine out on industrial, processed foods, drink municipal water, receive annual vaccines and take toxic medications.
The Doc in the Box or DIB, is your standard issue, non-thinking, work a day world, primary care (or other) doctor. As such he or she is a product of the Pills and Procedures paradigm that modern allopathic medicine is trapped in. The DIB is a useful idiot in maintaining the status quo. That is to say the DIB is a cog in the broken Commercial Sick Care System where, by design, medicine keeps you sick. Medicine as it’s currently practiced is not health care it’s really sick care. It keeps you sick or makes you sick because DIB’s are not taught prevention only intervention. Without the knowledge that prevention entails we are sunk. Unless we change the system preventive medicine will never happen because medical teaching, research and publishing are all drug company controlled. Drug companies sell drugs and equipment. To stay competitive and profitable Big Pharma must sell their products. Therefore, the sicker you are the more drugs they can sell.
The book deals with the 15 or so most important health issues of our day. Without a thorough knowledge of these issues you will never be well and your children will never outlive you. If you currently suffer from cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, obesity, stroke, hypertension, cancer or any other first world “it” disease then you must know the contents of this book as the foundation for getting well again or if you wish to stay healthy.
I can promise you one thing-after four solid years of research it’s an eye opener and you will be damn glad you read it. Find out what you are not told on Junk Food TV or the NY Times.
Stay tuned for snippets of chapters coming on a regular basis.
