The worlds most misunderstood disease
No one is sure how long modern humans have lived on earth. Some suspect that it may have only be 200,000 years, and while we have survived, it’s debatable if we have actually evolved. We have figured out what it takes to survive physically and technically, but we have always been at odds about what it takes to survive intellectually

Western allopathic medicine is a new phenomenon when we consider the timespan of human history. No one is quite sure how long human beings have lived on this planet as past knowledge has mostly been lost and what people believe is largely theoretical.

And the failure of antibiotics
Health authorities, doctors and medical institutions have been concerned for many years about the growing resistance of bacteria and viruses to the antibiotics that we have available.

A guide for survival
We face so many challenges today, it’s simply mind-boggling to try and find any perspective. Everyone has a different opinion about what’s going on in life, especially politics, crime, poverty and what is about Muslims?

In his books and talks, Dr. Joel Wallach describes how doctors on average live a slightly shorter life than the average person. This is simply because the diets and lifestyles of doctors are underpar and they are not properly educated in regard to diet and the nature of being human.
However in the United States,

And how to resolve this problem
The concern of authorities in most countries and what is most talked about in the media is the harm associated with illegal drugs such as cannabis, heroin and the new synthetic drugs.

Anthropologists think that we humans began wearing clothing about 200,000 years ago as we became a distinct new species, but primarily in order to protect ourselves from the elements. It’s quite obvious that we need layers of clothing when the weather it’s cold, waterproof clothing when it rains, and when we are engaged in physical

As a species we get addicted to so many things from money and power to sugar, sex and other behaviours, various drugs and alcohol. All of these addictions or compulsions arise through a combination of deep-seated unhappiness and improper education.
Western civilisation believes that it is built on a rational foundation, it is all about what is around us and evolving practical solutions
