Health Secret All Doctors Depend On But (shhhh!) Few Talk About

There’s a “secret” process in your body that works all the time to keep you as healthy as you can pos­si­bly be.

Last time you were sick, you might have got­ten your blood test­ed so that your doc­tor could “diag­nose” what was wrong with you.

Was your cal­ci­um with­in the nor­mal range?  What about your blood sug­ar?  How about your cho­les­terol?  All these blood com­po­nents, and many more, have to be reg­u­lat­ed by the con­trol sys­tems with­in your body in order for you to have opti­mal health.

We know a lot about the dif­fer­ent drugs doc­tors can give you to arti­fi­cial­ly manip­u­late your chem­istry when these blood ele­ments are out of bal­ance.

But how much do we know about the nor­mal body process­es that keep these mea­sure­ments with­in healthy lim­its 99.9% of the time?

Despite tremen­dous advances in med­ical sci­ence, our knowl­edge of nat­ur­al health process­es still has big gaps. That’s why it’s a “secret” process.  There’s no phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­ny spend­ing bil­lions of dol­lars to learn more about this secret health ingre­di­ent.

But we do know how pow­er­ful your inner heal­ing process is.  We see evi­dence of it at work every minute of every day.

With­out it, your body would be a hope­less mess. No doc­tor could do a thing for you.  You couldn’t even take an antibi­ot­ic to cure an infec­tion, because your body wouldn’t be able to clear out all the dead germs that the antibi­ot­ic was killing.

For­tu­nate­ly, your body can man­u­fac­ture thou­sands of dif­fer­ent “antibi­otics” (i.e. anti­bod­ies) and oth­er inner “drugs” (hor­mones, nerve mes­sen­gers, and more) as need­ed.

Your body can detox­i­fy thou­sands of poi­sons.  Your body can extract from your food the opti­mal nutri­ents you need to grow and main­tain health.

Your body, if giv­en a chance, can nat­u­ral­ly

  • clean out your clogged arter­ies
  • fill your blood with oxy­gen even if a lung is dam­aged
  • adjust your heart rate up or down as your activ­i­ties demand
  • fil­ter out waste prod­ucts as your blood flows through the kid­neys
  • repair injured mus­cles, lig­a­ments, car­ti­lage, and ten­dons, and
  • do a mil­lion oth­er things you need to be healthy.
