Kill the First Disease! Read It! Then Do It!
Before all chronic diseases, the body is struck by a surreptitious disease, "the First Disease!"
The First Disease sucks the oxygen of the body, and on the whole, it plants the seed for infectious, chronic, and degenerative diseases such as cancer, by instigating accelerated aging, wearing out the immune system, weakening the bones, and stressing the brain.
The widespread variety of symptoms such as low grade inflammation, general aches and pain and headache, tenderness and stiffness of muscles and joints, sleep disorders, high cholesterol levels, hypertension, fatigue, impaired concentration and memory, and the majority of prevalent chronic, degenerative, and infectious diseases affecting our population have their origin in the First Disease.
The First Disease is one of the most neglected and unmanaged health conditions in spite of the fact that it is a worldwide malady, a pandemic which is preventable and can be controlled effectively and safely. It affects nearly everyone at some point, or during most of their lifetime, and yet it is one of the most overlooked aspects of public health.
The good news is that the First Disease can be effectively stopped to prevent premature aging, to reduce inflammation, and to strengthen the immune system to prevent most cancers and other chronic and degenerative diseases. The evidence from epigenetic studies tells us that preventive intervention can be achieved to the extent that development of many illnesses among people who may even have genetic tendencies for them can be stopped.
The First Disease and its many aftermaths killed my beloved husband, Henry. So, passionately and dutifully, I am pursuing my mission in life and have written this book for our general population to impart knowledge about this least talked about disorder to support prevention or undoing of this surreptitious and not widely known disease. I wrote this book because our people are our greatest national asset! I wrote this book because generally, doctors do not talk to our people about the First Disease and its impact on the course of infectious, chronic, degenerative diseases. Throughout the book, my objective is not to give any medical or clinical advice, but to present and to reinforce the facts about the First Disease, its significance and its consequences when not prevented or managed effectively.
"Kill the First Disease" is a holistic approach to prevention or undoing of the First Disease without unnecessary and perfunctory use of pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals, or invasive medical interventions.
My ultimate goal in writing this book is to make the First Disease a household word like diabetes and cancer, two of the many aftermaths of this malady. It is my hope that this book helps our people not to experience the excruciating pain that my dear Henry, I, and our family suffered, and to live a healthy and long life.
