Editor’s Note: this posting is part one of a 4 part analysis of the Evolution of Disease. The information is enlightening, to say the least. The table of content, at the bottom of this introduction, will take you to the rest of the discussion. Enjoy the analysis, we did.
The Evolution of Disease
“Disease is never going to happen to me.” , but when it does:
- It seems like the condition happened to them overnight.
- There was absolutely nothing that they could have done to spare themselves.
- They feel like victims, completely without choice, with fear and the feelings of helplessness.
Disease is predictable, not inevitable nor final
|The human body is Adaptable, Resilient and Forgiving|
These three characteristics are both a blessing and a trap.
- They are a blessing because the body can adapt to periods of poor nutrition, abnormal exercise and rest patterns and stress.
- They are a trap when it lulls you into the false sense of indestructibility.
Until recently, people believed each subsequent generation entering retirement years would be in better physical shape than the preceding generation.
In March 2007, a Health and Retirement Study research published by the nonprofit National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), and supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA),
a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), revealed the disturbing trend of Americans in their early to mid-50s reporting poorer health, more pain, and more trouble doing every day physical tasks than their older peers reported when they were the same age in recent years.
Many of today’s common diseases didn’t even exist 40 years ago. While there have been remarkable advances in the Medical Arts with: more technology, more doctors, more specialties, more pharmaceutical drugs and more hospitals; we are the least healthy generation of Americans in history, and we are experiencing ever increasing rates of disease.

Have you ever thought about the miracle of the human body?
Or considered the way the body functions in perfect harmony – with lungs breathing, heart beating, senses sensing, muscles moving, healing and regenerating itself every 7 years? Few have the time to think about this until a problem develops.
Everyone believes: “Disease is never going to happen to me.” When it does, it seems like the condition happenedto them overnight and there was absolutely nothing that they could have done to spare themselves. They feel like victims, completely without choice, with fear and the feelings of helplessness.
Health Declines in Phases
Contrary to popular opinion, disease does not happen overnight. There are choices involved. It is the choices a person makes, like:
It is the choices people make every day that unknowingly lead to the depletion of nutrients and imbalances in the factors necessary to sustain a healthful body.
The Human body is meant to function in a state of balance - NOT a constant state of distress.
Degenerative disease is like a thief in the night: it sneaks up on you to steal your most valuable asset – YOUR HEALTH. It may take years to create a disease condition – but these poor choices and the consequential imbalances in the whole body allow disease to happen.
There are 4 phases of disease:
- Denial: the belief that “Disease will never happen to me.”
- Decline: ignoring the inconveniences of “feeling off”.
- Deterioration: searching for solutions for problems that have no answers.
- Disease: the hapless state that has you asking: “Why me?”
The 1st phase, Denial, doesn’t require analysis because it is all attitude – the illusion of invencibility that gets all of us in trouble..
