Politics and Religion: Real Health vs. Obamacare

The Supreme Court, Chief John Roberts in particular, has just engaged in some of the worst, most egregious, judicial activism since Roe V Wade.

Roberts redefined “Obamacare” to call the “penalty” a “tax,” and thus ruled that the law is constitutional. It is NOT constitutional! Furthermore, on a conference call addressing ramifications of the decision, I heard Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott make the great point that Roberts has now essentially legalized the taxation of “non-activity.” That is to say the federal government can now not only tax “activity” such as commerce, but now it can tax “non-activity” such as not purchasing health insurance. Abbott is right, and the reality of this new realm of taxation is so wrong and so dangerous it is hard if not impossible to overstate.

The House has now voted to repeal “Obamacare,” but without a Republican Senate and President after the November election this will not happen – to the further harm of our health, economy, and nation. But the immediate question is what are you doing to preserve your health, live with energy? Also what will you do to avoid placing yourself at the mercy of the medical establishment, which is unwise at best, but will soon become overtly detrimental with bureaucrats running the system.

I am not a scientist or doctor, but I can read, study, and compare. While this piece is just honest opinion, it is completely rooted in various scientific research sources and logic, and is more of a report that could help impact your life if you’ve got the good sense and courage to take responsibility for your own health and that of your children. That may sound intimidating, but it’s really not. The first, basic premise is always, what does the Bible say?

The Amplified version of the Bible, in the second phrase of Proverbs 18:9 says, “He who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide.”  Rev 18:23, in the last phrase of this verse, says “. . . because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.” So what does that have to do with health?

The word sorcery in the original Greek is “pharmakeia,” where we get the word pharmacy. It means “medication” and by extension, “magic” – sorcery, witchcraft. This is clearly speaking, at least in part, of both legal and illegal drug use. While there are good and proper uses for medicines, they are significantly over utilized, with great risks, declining effectiveness, and great danger to the health of many who are blindly trusting what “the system” says to do. Just consider the shock and disappointment that many will face when they’re older and their medical needs are too expensive to justify economically – according to a nameless, faceless bureaucrat administrating Obamacare.

This is reflected in the following: the total number of retail drug prescriptions in the U. S. in 2010 was 3,703,594,389 which is an average of 12 prescriptions for every person in America. That’s one per month per person. There is something very wrong with that picture. Partially alleviating or hiding symptoms is NOT health! Now, we thank God for “crisis intervention” medications and technology. But the real, long-term health solution is summed up by how pioneer nutritional researcher Dr. Roger J. Williams (1893 – 1988) summed up his life’s work: “The human body heals itself, and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task.”

The reality is we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). The body has the created capacity to heal itself if we put in it what God intended: the building blocks for better health. Essentially there are two ways to healing, by obedience to God’s wisdom and design, and His supernatural healing – through His word, and the “purchase” by the stripes of Jesus.

It’s the absence of good, effective nutrition that is lacking for almost everyone everywhere. With complete ignorance of, or refusal to obey Biblical design for agriculture, our government and corporate agriculture are turning us into a third World country nutritionally. We fail to rest the lands or rotate the crops, and instead use chemical fertilizers that too rapidly grow our foods in nutrient-depleted soils, followed up with green-harvesting our food long before it is matured and ready. We synthesize 95% of our vitamins from petroleum products, produce fuel from food (corn) to put in our cars, and genetically modify foods that damage our organs. Go figure!

I’m aware of testimony in Congressional Hearings back in the 1930s regarding the nutritional depletion of our foods. It has only gotten worse since, and progressively much, much worse over the last 20 to 30 years. To be kind, we now have on average about 50% of the nutrition that we once had in our foods.  I recently saw a statistic where it takes 58 peaches to equal the nutritional equivalent of two peaches 50 years ago. You can see this reflected in the government’s food pyramid and their recommendation on the number of servings of fruits and vegetables. If the trend continues, you won’t be physically capable of eating all the “rabbit food” you’ll need to stay healthy.

And here’s this little tidbit of icing on the cake from Mercola.com; “In 2009, more than 50 percent of all Americans consumed one-half pound of sugar PER DAY—translating to a whopping 180 pounds of sugar per year. Sugar is loaded into your soft drinks, fruit juices, sports drinks, and hidden in almost all processed foods…. And now most infant formula has the sugar equivalent of one can of Coca-Cola, so babies are being metabolically poisoned from day one if taking formula. No wonder there is an obesity epidemic in this country.”

At least a few of us now know there are a class of nutrients called glyconutrients, the recently discovered “vital, plant digested carbohydrates” (just as there are “essential fatty acids” and “essential amino acids”), that are vital to health but missing in our diet due to the aforementioned depleted soils, rapid chemical fertilizer growth, and green harvesting; the results of which are an exploding epidemic of chronic diseases. The science of glycomics (glycobiology, glyconutrients, glycoproteins) is now irrefutable and the health benefits are powerful, though generally still unknown.

The science is now being taught in medical school. The textbook “Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry 27th Edition” has an entire chapter devoted to this subject, from which I quote (with their emphasis) the opening sentences of the chapter:

Glycobiology is the study of the roles of sugars in health and disease. The glycome is the entire complement of sugars, whether free or present in more complex molecules, of an organism. Glycomics, an analogous term to genomics and proteomics, is the comprehensive study of glycomes, including genetic, physiologic, pathologies and other aspects. 

One major class of molecules included in the glycome is glycoproteins. These are proteins that contain oligosaccharide chains (glycans) covalently attached to their polypeptide backbones. It has been estimated that approximately 50% of eukaryotic proteins have sugars attached, so that glycosylation (enzymatic attachment of sugars) is the most frequent post-translational modification of proteins. Nonenzymatic attachment of sugars can also occur, and is referred to as glycation. This process can have serous pathologic consequences (eg, in uncontrolled diabetes mellitus).

Dr. John Rollins, former Howard University College of Medicine Professor and Bio-tech examiner of the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office calls glyconutrients “One of the most important healthcare discoveries of the 21st Century . . . I believe the overall immune-supporting potential of glyconutrients represents the best integrative health strategy that science has to offer.” MIT’s Technology Review (February 2003) said, “Glycomics (is) one of the top 10 technologies that will change the world.”

Take responsibility. Research and integrate the best options. Refuse to be placed in your own “Matrix pod” by those who continue to deceive and control society at every level. Contact me if you like. It’s your choice–and responsibility.
