Aging Process And The Implications Of Managing Health With Cabinet Full Of Chemicals: Learn cancer connection to aging and excessive chemical management of health
Wise folks form the part of the world I grew up have an adage, which states, “If a young man does not take time to learn what killed his father, he would also die from the very same cause that claimed his father’s life.” Youth promotes a sense of invisibility and exuberance. At a young age, the thoughts of growing old rarely cross the mind of younger population. Young people tend to follow in their families’ traditions on varieties of values ranging from life style and belief system to health practice and family values, even in cases where some of these values are detrimental to good health and quality of life.
Aging and aging process is a typical example. Except in cultures where senior citizens are treasured and are major facilitators of developmental process of the youth, young people rarely hold vital conversations with senior citizens about life and values of life. In many of these cultures, younger generation rarely engage in important dialogue about emotions and physical difficulties of aging. For this reason, many unhealthy practices of aging process in these cultures such as excessive use of chemicals in healthcare management of aging senior citizens continue to occur generation after generations.
Senior citizens suffer enormous high rate of cancer due to medical chemical control of their aging bodies. Let us face the fact aging is not a disease. If you doubt it is, visit many cultures outside the Western culture where citizens appreciate, nurture and celebrated aging. Visit those cultures where citizens honor and respect aging life, and acknowledge the values of wisdom that come with senior citizenship. Folks in these cultures look forward to golden age of senior citizenship. In these cultures, senior citizens enjoy their golden age with life filled with love, respect, and honor that come with lifetime rewards for years of caring, giving, and sacrifice.
The fact is, many of these countries are not as wealthy as many countries of the West. The notion that wealth and material possession translate to good health and happiness is not necessarily true. Wealth does not equate to good health and happiness. In many cases, wealth has little to do with being healthy especially for people who attach minimal importance on material possession. Because there is minimal use of chemicals in healthcare management in these cultures, majority of senior citizens are physically strong and healthy long into their final stage of growth. Majority of them are able to enjoy active and healthy life style to the very end of physical life. In these cultures, close family and extended family relationships are integral part of healthy aging and at the core of quality of life senior citizens enjoy toward their final stage of growth. Senior citizens in these cultures widely enjoy abundances of family and extended family relationship. The impact of these various levels of relationships dynamics on the health and wellness of an aging body is priceless.
At a young age, one is able to get up and go at a drop of a dime. At a younger age also, the body produces tremendous amount of energy and recycles very rapidly. That is not the case as the body ages. All activities and functions of the body slow down to a considerable degree as the body ages. It is important to note that numerical number associated to an aging body has very little to do with the aging process. The quality of life one lives has so much impact on the aging process.
What medical medicine loses sight of in many cases and fails to practice clinically is the fact that healthy body has an amazing ability to calibrate aging process and maintain good healthy functions during aging. Synthetic chemicals make it difficult especially for aging organs to function adequately. The body simply needs support and nurturing during aging. That support and nurturing should come from proper nutrition, adequate physical activities, adequate sleep, loving companionship, and observing positive laws of nature.
Living a healthy and quality life during the golden age is a personal responsibility. One of the most important health responsibilities is being conscious of the things one consumes physically, emotionally and spiritually. Let me be clear that I am not referring to theological meaning of spirituality in this context even though, theological spirituality plays an important role in maintaining good health and wellness only for those who build theological beliefs on the foundation of unadulterated love for all.
Majority of senior citizens in the Western culture arrive at what supposed to be their golden ages with numerous health issues caused by many chemicals prescribed to them over the years by their physicians. Many of them end up with a cabinet full of prescribed chemicals. Majority of these chemicals accelerate aging process and cause difficulties for enjoying golden age because of numerous health issues these chemicals cause in the lives of senior citizens. Many of the chemicals senior citizens are taking inhibit the functions of healthy cells, compromise body immune system, and make it difficult for the aging body to destroy cancer cells. These chemicals further weaken internal organs of the body, drastically impair cognitive functioning among seniors, and in many cases induce early memory losses. Many of these chemical also turn internal aging body into a toxic acidic environment conducive for cancer cells proliferation. I submit a trip to nursing homes around the Western world will change many opinions and perceptions about the meaning of “living long” medical community often refer to as one of the innovations in modern medicine. I personally would not wish anyone to pass through the final stage of growth suffering as many senior citizens in the nursing homes.
There are things that do not mix well or are suppose to coexist simply by the chemistry of their makeup. Salt for example is terribly bad for all mechanical engines. The engine of an automobile will seize to function shortly after encountering substantial amount of salt either in the gas tank or in the oil tank. Oil and water is another example. They do not mix. In the same manner salt is bad for mechanical engines so also synthetic chemicals are bad for human body. They disrupt the natural functions of the body organs, increase body acidity thereby degrade the internal organs of the body. Many of these chemicals slowly kill the body by compromising the body’s immune system ability to protect the body from foreign attacks, including formation of cancer cells. For an aging body, the speed at which these synthetic chemical overpower the aging organ is alarming.
Each time a physician prescribes a chemical to control a natural process in the body proper nutrition and healthy behavior could correct, over a short period of time that chemical cause another set of health problem. Then, the physician has to prescribe another chemical or set of chemicals to correct the problem the previous chemical or chemicals caused. The second set of chemicals cause a different set of health problems. This unhealthy internal cycle continues. For a senior citizen, eventually he or she is taking a cabinet full of chemicals to correct numerous chemical induced health problems. This is the major clinical causes of poor and serious health issues, including cancer among the aging population in the Western world, where chemical management of health is the predominant intervention.
Wise folks from the community I drew up often say to the younger generation that an old fool was a young fool who never learn from life’s lessons and made changes from experiences of events in his or her life. Aging is not a disease that needs treatment with medication. Because we inherited certain cultural practices especially, health practices do not necessarily mean many of those practices are in fact healthy. It is your right to demand of your healthcare provider natural alternatives to chemicals prescribed for your health management. Aging is a natural process our Creator designed to brings peaceful excitement and joy to the final stage of growth. Health misery is not and should not be part of aging process. Society should not treat aging and aging population as if they are old properties that belong in rarely visited and forgotten storage housing. Senior citizens are not burden to society. Senior citizens are treasures of blessings to society. Our senior citizens do not belong in isolation. Every society and culture must embrace and appreciate the wealth of blessings senior citizens have to offer especially in the current unstable cultural climate. The truth is many of us will become senior citizens if we take good care of our health and avoid many health and life style mistakes our parents made. Live right. Take charge of your health. Make health and wellness changes today, and take healthy measures that keeps you healthy, wealthy, and wise to your final stage of growth. Take care of the senior citizens in your life because that senior citizen is you in a few years. Think about this if all those voice that whisper can also hear.
