Ben Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Yet modern medicine is focused mostly on treating established diseases after they are already well-advanced.
Despite all the talk about prevention, traditional medicine all but ignores the subject. The interesting thing about nutritional solutions is that they are powerful preventatives as well as treatment methods, and are much safer than pharmaceuticals.
It is also vital to keep in mind that supplements do not treat or protect against just one disease or focus on only one organ.
For example, hawthorn is suggested for lowering blood pressure and strengthening the heart’s contractions. But it is also a powerful protectant for the brain and other organs.
Silymarin (milk thistle) is touted as a liverprotectant. But it is also a powerful cancer inhibitor and protects the brain.
Supplements such as R-lipoic acid, NAC, and vitamins protect all cells and every organ.
But supplements are far less effective if not accompanied by healthy diets and regular exercise.
I cannot emphasize this enough. The benefit of a good diet is greatest the sooner in life you begin. Indeed, new studies have shown that the mother’s diet during pregnancy can program the developing baby for either good health or future diseases — including cancer, heart disease, and brain disorders.
This is not to say that it is ever too late to start a healthy diet. Even if started late in life, one can experience tremendous benefits and even reversal of some diseases.
