As we reminded you at the very beginning of this book—yes, there is a “disease-care” crisis in America today. And yes, most Americans find themselves in what Dr. Gary Tunsky refers to as a “Medical Twilight Zone,” with all too many of us already far beyond that point. This is an undeniable reality, given the nature of our society today. However, my message of encouragement to you is: If I can regain my health after years of suffering and taking prescription drugs, you can, too.
Indeed, there is hope buried underneath this great American tragedy. And that hope is: you do not have to be a part of this crisis. No matter how long you have been sick and taking medication, or whatever treatment you have had in the past, your body can and will balance and heal itself as you incorporate the R.E.B.A. Principles into your life—if your cells have not been destroyed to the point of no return.
It is the birthright of every human being to experience and enjoy a long, healthy life free of drugs. Being healthy is your natural state of being. But in order to experience vital health, you must embrace, nurture, and protect it with all your power. Your longevity and quality of life depend on making informed decisions and taking the appropriate action!
I speak with conviction and experience when I tell you that you no longer have to suffer from chronic diseases, take tons of life-destroying drugs for the rest of your life, or undergo unnecessary risky surgeries. Those are trails of disease you will leave behind—if you act on the information in this book.
Additionally, you will no longer have to struggle to find your own path to health and wellness or depend on conventional medicine. And finally, you will no longer feel isolated and guilty for being sick and having to depend on family and friends. Instead, you will acquire the courage and know-how to improve your lifestyle, your health, and your life. I did it, and you can too.
Believe me when I say there is an enormous difference between living in health and enjoying a disease-free life, and living in chronic pain, taking tons of drugs, depending on family and friends, living your last days in a nursing facility and constantly worrying about your fate.
Being unhealthy and living in constant fear are no fun. I know because I have been there and done that! You see, seventeen years after my father’s death, I was facing the exact same fatal outcome. Every time I experienced asthma symptoms, I thought about my father and how he suffered all of his life—as far back as I can remember. That memory was always followed by an overwhelmed sense of fear and helplessness, which continued until I “woke up” and decided to take control of my health decisions and actions.
“When trying to make a good decision, a person must weigh the positives and negatives of each option, and consider all the alternatives.”
When I set out on my health journey, I did not have access to a health coach or mentor to guide me, but that did not prevent me from moving forward. Luckily, you do not have to travel the same costly, time-consuming path I traveled to regain your health. You see, the R.E.B.A. Principles eliminated the guess-work and paved the way for you to create a healthier and more vibrant drug-free life than you could ever imagine.
I sincerely hope the information I have provided will serve as a wake-up call and a beacon of light to guide you through the huge and inherently destructive maze of disease management and temporary quick fixes offered by practitioners of all sorts, up to and including allopathic physicians. I have given you the health principles you need to make yourself healthier, slimmer, and more energetic than you have been in years! I will bet there is nothing else in your stack of facts that can do that!
Finally, your journey and destination will be governed by your knowledge and your decisions will be based on what you have learned. Use this new wisdom to guide you to wherever you want to go. I hope it leads you to the same desirable destination I finally reached—Divine Health.
