“How Sugar and Sweeteners Can Ruin Your Health”

I was prompted to write this article after seeing a commercial on TV promoting an “All Natural” chocolate pudding. The camera gave a close up of the ingredients and the first one was “milk” which we all know is not natural, and the second one was “sugar.” Now, how the heck is sugar natural? Of course they had athletic people jumping up and down doing the splits and showing how much “energy” they were getting from the milk laden sugar chemical concoction. Here’s all the information you need to know about sugar from a reputable source.

“Lick the Sugar Habit” by Nancy Appleton, PhD warns of the negative often dangerous effects of sugar on the body. In addition to throwing off the body’s homeostasis [balance], excess sugar may result in a number of other significant consequences. Using documentation from a variety of medical journals and other scientific publications, I have summed up the consequences of a body out of homeostasis due to eating excess sugar. You might make a copy of this list and put it on your refrigerator or tape it to the pantry door you keep your sugar bowl.”

Life, Death, Health and Disease

Where there is life there is action. Where there is action, known as function in the body, there is health. When the functions of the body deteriorate, there is disease. Death is caused by disease or an absence of life. Life can only correct the functions of the body with outside help. The chiropractor examines the body to isolate areas that are not functioning properly and then by way of adjustment, restores the function and allows life to flow freely through the body, thereby restoring health. A bone can be out of place putting pressure on a nerve limiting its ability to function. This state persisting causes malfunction. Then a disease process starts and the last thing to show up are the symptoms. A patient usually goes to a chiropractor after they have experienced symptoms. This means the injury that caused the bone to move out of place could have been years earlier. A thorough consultation and examination by a chiropractor will discover those moments where your body was injured causing the bone to put pressure on a nerve.

Of course it would be faster and easier if the patient would go to a chiropractor on a regular basis for checkups before they experience symptoms.

True Chiropractic Philosophy

“Is there a true chiropractic philosophy? Most certainly, and this is it. Diseases is not an entity, a thing of enmity ready to strike out at you at any opportunity. It exists first as disturbed function. The disturbed function then sets the stage for pathology and for the opportunistic vectors of disease to step in and wreak havoc. But disturbed function has its causes and center most on the stage as the cause of functional aberration in the human body is the vertebral subluxation. Certainly chiropractic recognizes other causes, but center stage in the practice of chiropractic by the chiropractor is the detection, location, analysis, control, reduction and correction of the vertebral subluxation.
Dr. Fred Barge, DC Book: Life Without Fear.
