Three Major Causes of Disease
The body is designed to heal itself. BUT it requires proper maintenance by each person addressing these areas in their life. For most of us, it will be necessary to alter one’s perspective on these areas since our society promotes a false view on how to maintain our health.

negative impact of these foods are passed on to you. Most of the "latest" food fads totally miss this critically important point. The poisonous, chemical nature of most of our foods are most definitely correlated to cognitive disorders, lymphatic congestion, tumor development and cancer.
