The Wellness Doc

March 2012 Archives

Recently, while exercising, I was watching "The Doctors" program on television. Occasionally, they have some great information on health and wellness. This was NOT one of those episodes! This episode was talking about how there is a new, breakthrough treatment for "spider veins". Spider veins are a form of varicose vein, but smaller and more of a cosmetic issue than a health/pain issue. One of the doctors on the program is a cosmetic surgeon he was extremely excited to demonstrate this amazing new technology. Without going into great detail, and to stay on point, he basically injected detergent into the tiny veins and everyone watched in awe as they disappeared. His words: "Watch as I inject detergent into the veins." THIS is the exciting new technology? Injecting detergent to remove a cosmetic blemish on your skin. What's next injecting botulism toxin in your face to remove wrinkles? Oh that's right that's being done already, that's what Botox is. When I was younger we feared Botulism; that's why mom always kept the meat in the fridge and not on the counter. Why did we fear this toxin that we now inject freely into our bodies? Botulism by definition is "a sometimes fatal disease of the nervous system acquired from spoiled foods in which botulin toxin is present, especially improperly canned or marinated foods." Sometimes fatal is scary enough for me to avoid this toxin at all costs.
We are injecting detergents and killer toxins into our bodies delicately balanced eco-system and wondering why we are sicker as a nation than most other industrialized countries. We take more and more medications each year and at the same time try to figure out our health care crisis. The solution to this crisis starts with a realization that your body's environment needs to be GREEN. This is directly analogous to understanding that our world and its environment need to be GREEN. More chemicals in our body's eco-system equals more harm and less health. It's that simple!
