often hear the words "genetic" or "idiopathic"
unknown cause when a medical doctor is trying to
locate the reason a person is sick. I get the
idea that it is just something that happens and we are
all to live in fear and hope it doesn’t happen to
us. The best I hear is that something is linked
to the "disease" being talked about, nothing
concrete, just perhaps something might have something
to do with it.
like to give you an analogy. Say you’re driving down
the highway in your 10 year old car. Suddenly it
starts to get warm. The car "gets a
fever". You go on a little more and it starts to
shake and is very hard to drive. You manage to pull
over and call a mechanic to come out and figure out
what is wrong with the car.
the mechanic gets there he does a bunch of tests and
then tells you there is nothing to be done – the car
has "engine palsy". He doesn’t
know the cause but it is something that happens when
the car is manufactured. All he knows is that
this sometimes happens and that now some parts need to
be replaced – car "surgery"
you spend another couple of thousand dollars and live
in fear that it might happen again.
maybe, it might have had something to do with
forgetting to check the oil. Could the lack of oil be
the cause of the "genetic" engine
"palsy? Do parts start breaking down as
they need a lubricant that wasn’t provided?
back in Biology 101, we were taught that the body runs
on protein, carbohydrates and fats and 40
other nutrients that cannot be made in the body.
These are essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14
minerals, and 10 amino acids.
people go on low fat diets or one of many restricted
fad diets and more often than not eat processed foods
with lots of chemicals in it, sugar etc.
you suppose that this fact might have something to do
with a non-optimum physical condition?
