Not a Battle but a Housecleaning
by Philip Inaco, M.D.
Our feature article gives a healthy perspective to the role of infection. The following excerpts reveal some of Dr. Philip's important message about letting "illness" run its course and refraining from treating symptoms for the overall benefit of the person:
"Children who are able to have their normal childhood healing crises consisting of fevers and discharges, thereby exercise and build their immune systems to be strong and resilient, which is of great benefit for their overall health."
"If we make our housekeeper stop her hectic cleaning in order to have some peace, we will have to put up with an untidy house. An untidy house and an inactive housekeeper are conditions which in the short run lead to a return of flies and ants, and in the long run lead to chronic disease and cancer. This is why I’ve been saying for fourteen years that an important way to prevent cancer is to appreciate the great wisdom and benefit of our occasional inflammatory house cleanings and to refrain from obstructing them unnecessarily with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs."
The Outside In Child
Claudia Anrig, D.C.
Our Wellness- Lifestyle Article continues with this same theme:
"However, lost is the wisdom that our body has an inborn intelligence to heal and self- regulate. Our culture has evolved to a chemical consciousness, assuming that all our ills should be treated. Could it be possible that we could trust our body’s inborn intelligence to know what to do?
Our evolved society leaves little room for time; time for balance, for rest and quietness, or to be sick and heal ourselves."
Engineered Foods: A Threat to Children
Our Nutritional Section reveals startling data about our foods: There are about 40 varieties of genetically engineered crop approved for marketing in the U.S. As a result, 60-70% of the foods on your grocery shelves contain genetically engineered (GE) components.
Genetically engineered foods contain substances that have never been a part of the human food supply. They are not subjected to rigorous pre-market safety testing. And THEY ARE NOT LABELED.
A Time for Play
This issues mind-body section explores play as a benefit of physical, intellectual, social and emotional learning.
It begins with, "There was a time when children played from morning till night.
They ran, jumped, played dress-up, and created endless stories out of their active imaginations.
Now, may scarcely play this way at all. What happened?" The article in its entirety addresses solutions we as parents can initiate.
