The 7 Stages Of Disease (Part 5)

Posted by : foongpc | Thursday, September 30, 2010 | Published in


According to Harvey Diamond, bestselling author of the book Fit For Life : A New Beginning, it is not easy to get cancer. One has to go through 6 stages before cancer strikes.

From our original vibrant health state, we had continuously abused our body by ingesting toxins and accumulating them in our body. The body is infinitely smart and tries to eliminate the toxins and even warn us with symptoms and irritations by making us go through 6 stages before reaching the 7th which is the Cancer Stage.

So far, I have talked about Stage 1 (Enervation), Stage 2 (Toxemia) and Stage 3 (Irritation). At any of these stages, if we take action to remove the cause of our health problems, the disease process will stop and good health returns.

But when we continue to ignore these 3 stages, the body will inevitably progress to the next stage which is....

Stage 4 : Inflammation

Inflammation is the body's most intense effort to cleanse and restore itself. When this process occurs, you become keenly aware that a problem exists for it involves pain.

None of us like pain. But believe it or not, pain is our friend! It has a purpose and that is to warn us something is wrong somewhere.

Imagine if you can't feel pain. What happens when you rest your hand on a hot stove without feeling pain? What happens when you step on broken glass without feeling pain? So you see, pain is the body's most effective warning signal.

If the last 3 stages gave you irritations and minor discomfort, you may chose to ignore them. But will you still choose to ignore pain?

When pain is chronic and unrelenting, it is a sign that the body is desperately attempting to get rid of the ever increasing level of toxemia before it causes devastating damage. With inflammation, the toxins in the system have usually been concentrated at a particular organ or a particular area of the body for a massive elimination effort. The area becomes inflamed due to the constant irritation from toxic material.

When inflammation exists, we are diagnosed with words that end with "itis".

Ever heard of tonsillitis? It's the inflammation of the tonsils.

How about appendicitis? It's inflammation of the appendix.

Hepatitis? Inflammation of the liver.

Arthritis? Inflammation of the joints.

Colitis? Inflammation of the colon.

Nephritis? Inflammation of the kidneys.

Sinusitis? Inflammation of the sinus.

Dermatitis? Inflammation of the skin.

OK, I'm sure you get the idea. But what do most people do when they feel pain? Off they go to see the doctor in search for relief. And what does the doctor do? Prescribe drugs to take away the pain.

Unfortunately, the drugs do nothing to remove the cause of the problem. They only serve to lessen the pain temporarily. Worse, the drugs are adding to the body's level of toxemia which the body is desperately trying to get rid of!

Stage 4 is crucial for it is in the middle of the 7 stages and actions taken at this point will determine whether or not you are going to recover your health and return to a state of vibrancy, or fall deeper into the diseased state.

If you do not start to detoxify your body at this stage, you will most likely progress to Stage 5 : Ulceration, which I shall talk about next!

    Ulceration? That's one scary term.

    As for me, I abhor pain. I hate pain. But I try, as long as could take it, not to take any pain reliever whenever I feel a headache or some bodyache.

    What? There are 6 stages in order to get cancer? How come I feel...getting cancer is like getting a cold right now? :/

    September 30, 2010 at 3:44 PM
  17. Tekkaus said...

    Continuously abuse? Hmm...yeah. We are the one who is causing ourselves all this cancer thingy right! :( But then again...sometimes it is not about food.

    September 30, 2010 at 3:45 PM
  18. Tekkaus said...

    So what you are trying to say is that our body actually gives us the opportunity to repent and lead a healthy lifestyle again before everything becomes irreversible right?

  19. Tekkaus said... when inflammation means the alarm has been raised?

    September 30, 2010 at 3:47 PM
  20. Tekkaus said...

    I agreed bro. if not for pain we wouldn't know what is going on with us until it is too late right? :( having said that, symptoms are equally important to warn us of our health status.

    September 30, 2010 at 3:48 PM
  21. Tekkaus said...

    Ouh....when inflammation occurs, it means all the toxins are congregating in a particular dangerous ler.

    September 30, 2010 at 3:49 PM
  22. Tekkaus said... anything medical term with "itis", it meant inflaammation lar? Now only I know bro. :) Thanks for the heads up. :)

    September 30, 2010 at 3:50 PM
  23. Tekkaus said...

    I agreed bro. What doctors diagnose and give medicine according to his or her diagnosis...and sometimes...their diagnosis is terribly wrong...

    September 30, 2010 at 3:53 PM
  24. Tekkaus said... meaning that the doctor is actually aggravating our body's health? Hmm....

    September 30, 2010 at 3:54 PM
  25. Tekkaus said...

    Sounds like stage 4 is the now or never stage? :( So dangerous...

    Hey can give some examples how you detox your body?

  28. RoseBelle said...

    Very informative. I know many people quickly pop a painkiller whenever they get a headache or experience any discomfort which is not necessarily a wise thing to do. If the pain is manageable, we should let our body get rid of the toxins and repair itself rather than putting in more chemicals from the painkiller pills.

    Painkiller is like stimulus plan during recession. It doesn't solve the problem, but does buy us time. So I wouldn't say it is useless.

    Very educational as always, almost forgot about this series, as the last post on this was done some time back by you.

    Looking forward to know about Ulceration.

    On a side note, at the end of your series, you should SERIOUSLY combine all these parts to become an e-book or something, and sell it online. If you are lazy, drop me an email and I'll do the dirty work for ya at a profit sharing thingy, serious.

    Thanks for this post. Not only this one but for all the posts on this topic. We all must definitely prevent the occurrence of any type of disease rather than fighting it. Prevention is better than cure.
