 We don’t know how much time we have on Earth, but we can make the most of the time we have. Our health and well-being is the most important thing we have. When we are in good health everything in our lives is better and more fun. Unfortunately, this state of being does not last forever. It is much easier to prepare for the day when we are facing illness, whether it is mild distress or a serious and possibly terminal disease, when we are healthy, rather than when time is an issue.

In the Unites States, the majority of treatment for sickness and disease involve drugs. Unfortunately drugs, although they sometimes provide initial relief, are usually harmful if taken over extended periods of time. Drug companies and the drugs they manufacture are very big business in this country. Yet due to the laws that govern our health care system, drugs are used almost exclusively in treatment of sickness and disease. In addition to drug companies, doctors and hospitals also profit by the use of drugs. When new treatments are discovered that do not involve drugs, they get little or no attention.

There are other options for people to explore that have proven to be successful. Many other people have found alternative treatment to be far more effective and less costly than drugs. Remedies that have had amazing results are highlighted in this book. In fact, for almost every serious illness treated with drug therapy, there is a natural non-destructive method of treatment.

Also included in this book are ways to understand and prevent disease. Eating a proper diet and the value of exercise is discussed, as well as, ways to manage stress and learn how it affects us physically. This may be the most important lesson of all.
