Beat the Odds. Avoid Chronic Illnesses and Prescribed Medications
The Holistic Health Show with Carl O. Helvie teaches you how using Mind, Body, Spirit, Relationship, Environment, and Political Interventions.
This show could save your life by providing you with comprehensive holistic interventions for staying well and overcoming illnesses.
Staying healthy and overcoming illnesses involve a combination of body-mind-spirit-environment-relationship-political interventions. I believe these should be the most effective ones available and also the least caustic and invasive.
The host uses and recommends a combination of holistic interventions for maximum effectiveness in maintaining health but many guests will present an in depth discussion on one aspect of the whole. Interventions in the six areas identified above should be used together, however, for maximum effectiveness.
The host was diagnosed with lung cancer and given 6 months to live by his primary care physician and specialist 32 years ago. Refusing chemotherapy and surgery he elected instead to use a holistic alternative approach. He has continued this approach and now at age 76 he has no chronic illnesses and no prescribed medications.
To put this in context research shows that 89% of all people over age 65 have chronic illnesses and prescribed medications and the average for those at age 75 is 3 chronic illnesses and 5 prescribed medications. The goal of the host is to assist others to achieve similar results in their lives so they can enjoy their elder years free of chronic illnesses and the accompanying pain, expenses, and inconveniences experienced.
