Solari Story: Food and Wealth
This week's Solari Story from Catherine Austin Fitts is titled "Food and Wealth." Here's a bit of the transcript:
"'Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead' ... in essence shows how 80 percent of America can solve most of their health care problems at very low cost because the thing that is driving health care expenses up is you have a highly controlled, highly governmentalized system – tremendous profits to corporations, tremendous profits to pharmaceutical companies. And the thing that's driving the costs up is the fact that nobody's healthy.
"Well, why is nobody healthy? We're all eating junk food, we're eating rotten food, we're not getting proper nutrition, we're not leading healthy lifestyles. And the beauty of "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" is that in one simple, little story of two men's lives it shows you the problem and the problem is you can't solve something on the back end that you're not solving and addressing on the front end. There are remarkable solutions to our health care system again, if we'll all just come clean."

Katherine Austin Fitts is correct as far as she goes. Easily corrected unhealthy lifestyles and diets are undoubtedly at the core of America's escalating medical costs. Yet she neglects to mention that pseudo food is causing diseases which drive us into the arms of pseudo medicine.
The affordability of modern medicine is irrelevant to its efficacy. Even if a wizard could wave a magic wand and make all modern medical procedures as affordable as today's computer technology, Western medicine would still be the leading cause of preventable death in America because it's based on a flawed model. Put simply, Western medicine doesn't work. It doesn't work because it's designed to perpetually treat symptoms with patented drugs and not cure much of anything. Of course much of this is the result of the regulatory power of the state propping up Western medicine and creating legal barriers to treatment approaches which can actually heal.
Just as the best strategy for one to remain free is to stay out of the clutches of the Western criminal justice system, the best strategy to lead a long life is to stay healthy and out of the clutches of Western medicine.
I personally know of a Western MD who practices Traditional Chinese Medicine and whose modest exertions can make an entire new hospital with all its shiny equipment and bustling staff of surgeons, nurses and drug dispensing doctors completely obsolete.
TCM is thousands of years old and, unlike Western medicine, is designed to cure with natural herbs. I know patients of this doctor who, with only a couple of hundred dollars of Chinese herbs, have been cured of all kinds of ailments including cancer. For one patient of my acquaintance, this doctor, by holding the patient's wrists and listening to the pulses, correctly diagnosed chest pains as caused by an infected tooth! How many conventional doctors can even begin to comprehend the possibility of such a diagnostic method?
Western medicine is good for life threatening trauma. For anything chronic, it's a model desperately in need of replacement by something which actually heals.

It's amazing how many people just don't care about their health. I told a friend 20 years ago, that the aspartame in his diet coke is a neurotoxin. It didn't slow him down at all.
Trader Joes is a chain that sells quality groceries that are generally inexpensive. The people that I see there are almost universally healthy looking.
Search google for "walmartians" and you will see the opposite end of the spectrum.
I have no medical insurance. I just eat carefully. If I get hurt, I just give my body the time and materials to fix itself. I've done just fine. Don't think that I haven't had any serious injuries.
I broke my ankles 4 times. Crushed my left foot. Shattered my right heel. Broke the metatarsals a few times. Broke my back 3 times,, leg once. Broke ribs and hand. Trashed my shoulders twice. Head-on 118 freeway. Burned and blinded, etc.
I take about 40 supplements a day. I have slowed down just a bit though.

I agree that this is fundamental wisdom but most people I have met in my life are immune to it. It seems crazy but it's true. Most people are deaf to what is best for them. Presently I am at the best weight and am eating better than at any other time in my life. It costs me less and both my wife and I are healthy and never have any colds or flu. I am in my seventies and my wife is in her sixties.
We do use the NHS to some small extent but that is because I am diabetic owing to to my bad eating habits when I was in my middle years, 40-60. Even then my diabetes is well controlled and I have no side effects due mainly to my diet which includes fresh vegetable, fruit and herbs juicing and supplementation.
Looking at Catherine Austin Fitts it is clear she is overweight and should be listening to her own advice. This serves however to emphasise that most people do not connect their thoughts with their actions. We may know what is best practice but we do not or cannot do it. Until one wakes up it will continue this way.

Oh, does this ever resonate with me!
I practiced Natural Medicine for 41 years. I'm a retired Traditional Naturopath, a "people's physician" who (thanks to some early guidance from the ACLU) learned to keep quiet about how my patients--who suffered every kind of chronic degenerative disease you can think of--were getting well via pure diet and life-positive lifestyle. I followed their advice and kept it quiet. Well, it's time to come out of the closet. ALL these diseases, including cancer and ALS, e.g., are curable. Every last one. I cannot be fooled about this because I've seen it first-hand. With thousands of patients.
Yes, I know how to save literally billions of dollars and (more importantly) millions of lifes and immeasurable suffering. And I'm happy to share this information. But, with whom? Who wants to listen? The only people who cnnot be cured (and I'll give you a new definition of "cure") are (1) those who are already in a deep terminal state, and (2) those who simply will not follow protocol. Everyone else can and will be cured.
"Cure" means the Pt (patient) (1) must know how they got the disorder--which must be described to him/her by the healer, (2) must know how to bring about the elimination of symptoms--which, again, is taught to him/her by the healer, and (3) THEY MUST DO IT!
So, who is going to come on TV and broadcase to the general public how this is done, that this is the case? Who will let them? The lame-stream media is "owned" by Big Pharma and Big Corporate. Will they even allow this information to be broadcast?
Enter a guy with some spunk and a camera who has healed himself via these processes of raw foods and juices. Bingo! But we need much more. We need the healers to come forth who have seen this happen thousands and thousands of times--with details and protocols. But, as that little video--Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" has already shown, it's basically simple.
So, we teach people that they can be well thru pure diet and life-positive lifestyle. We instruct them clearly, in detail and in no uncertain terms. Now, we live in a different world. Ready?

So is the point "Don't be 300 pounds"? Or is the point "Buy a juicer from me"?
