Nature could Save 3 million lives.

  Can eating and medicating with nature actually make you healthier and more balanced? Doesn’t modern medicine and prescription drugs enable us to live longer, healthier and happier lives? Today’s food and healthcare systems are saving lives, however when you eat processed foods, or take synthetic medicine you are altering your body in an unnatural way. Which will require you to take additional synthetic products to balance the unnatural effects that man-made food and medicine creates. You become a passenger on a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows of poor and good health. However when you eat and medicate naturally you are creating homeostasis in your body. Our body’s react better to nature than man-made chemicals. 

         Below you will find an excerpt for the book I am writing “Balanced life, Happy Life”, or maybe “lazy way to balance and abundance”?. 

     Three million people die annually from symptoms created by an unnatural, processed food, synthetic diet. That is 8219 people dying everyday from symptoms that they created themselves! You wanna save yourself and the world? Learn about embracing nature to create balance in your life.

Unedited excerpt from; Balanced Life, Happy Life. By Stephen T Radentz:

“The pharmaceutical drugs are less expensive than the fruits, vegetables, and herbs that will keep you healthy and balanced naturally. For the majority of Americans it is less expensive to take unnatural, synthetic drugs, than it is to eat a healthy diet. That is a very sad fact.

Another exciting part of our healthcare system is that the drugs are actually subsidized by the American government, using your tax dollars. However, the healthy, fresh, natural fruits and vegetables that will guarantee you good health, get less than three percent of all agricultural subsidies. The other ninety-seven percent of government agricultural subsidies (your tax dollars) go to mostly GMO corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat, and sorghum. Which are then converted into highly refined sugar, high salt, processed foods with synthetic nutrients, like high fructose corn syrup, which is in most if not all processed foods. You get to pay a premium for the foods that will keep you healthy, and the stuff that will kill you is cheap because your tax dollars subsidize it. Isn’t that super cool? YOU are paying the companies that are killing you.

That is awesome… right? Super cool stuff. And, in case you were wondering, according to Johns Hopkins University 250,000 people die from medical errors every year, and according to the Journal of American Medical Association 150,000 people die from adverse effects of prescribed medications each year. That is a minimum of 400,000 people that die every year from mainstream medicine, our healthcare system. (statistics from 2017)

     I’m sure that you have heard of the opioid epidemic that our American government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars on trying to “fix it” (your tax dollars hard at work). Opioids kill on average 45,000 people a year, and this “epidemic” is in the headlines everyday. Yet eight times as many people are killed using our healthcare system and you hear nothing? 400,000 people have died from our healthcare system this year and last year, and the year before that, and no one is talking about this. Not one single headline swearing vengeance on our health system. Nope, no one seems to care. Well, I Care, and you should too! 

     According to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), here are the leading causes of death in America. Most of these can be eliminated by eating naturally grown foods, medicating with naturally grown plants, and having a positive lifestyle! When you add up the top causes of death in America nearly three million deaths could be reversed by a simple lifestyle change. Check it out: 

* Heart disease: 635,260 (may be prevented with healthy diet) 

* Cancer: 598,038 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind) 

* * Tobacco 440,000 (Quit smoking

* *250,000 medical errors (DON’T go to doctors if your not dying) 

* Accidents (unintentional injuries): 161,374 (be careful, pay attention to details) 

* Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 154,596 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind) 

* *Adverse effects from pharmaceuticals 150,000 (Eat and medicate naturally, no need for pharmaceuticals) 

* Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 142,142 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind) 

* Alzheimer’s disease: 116,103 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind) 

* *Alcohol 88,000 (STOP drinking alcohol

* Diabetes: 80,058  (may be prevented or controlled with a healthy diet) 

* Influenza and Pneumonia: 51,537 (may be prevented with a healthy lifestyle) 

* Intentional self-harm (suicide): 44,965  (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind) 

* *Cannabis  (saves lives) 

(* stats from CDC.org)

** added to list for effect, stats from various government websites 2017) 

     You get to pay twenty percent of your salary for medical care that is killing you, and not one single government, or medical professional is trying to stop it. No one is telling you these facts.”

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
