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)

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.”
