Disease is Optional

Spring has sprung…

Oops – now we’re back to winter again as we arose this morning to snowing falling out of the sky. After 3 years of drought we’re always grateful for the precipitation. When you live in the mountains you stay much more aware of the dry conditions and risk for forest fire.

Nevertheless, we have had a taste of spring and some nice breaks in the weather to work on our garden. A few days ago we had our first treats from the garden – asparagus. We finally get to eat it, so delicious fresh cut. When my husband was digging the trenches 2 years ago in preparation for planting the garden, he said, “I won’t get to eat this until I’m 70”. You see, asparagus has to grow for 3 seasons before starting to harvest it.

So he made it – not quite 70 yet, but he did get to eat that asparagus!

My body is so ready for those fresh veggies from the garden. Store bought veggies are ok, but fresh from the garden rate so much higher.

Veggies somehow remind me that “Disease is Optional” since they play such an important role in disease prevention.

What disease would you like to make optional?

  •  Diabetes?
  •  Heart Disease?
  •   Cancer?

What diseases run in your family?


After helping many people back to health through nutrition and glandular support, Dr. Melvin Page proclaimed that you can have a genetic propensity for a disease, but your lifestyle causes it to manifest in your body. But with the correct knowledge applied with wisdom, you can prevent the manifestation of that familial disease and stay healthy.

That’s the good news!


Here’s another amazing thing that doctors are just discovering now:

All degenerative diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, eye diseases and others are caused by the same 2-3 factors. If you can correct those factors the disease process can be reversed. Looks like they’re just realizing what Dr. Page knew back in the 1950’s. Main stream medicine and media reports eventually catch up with the truth spoken by pioneers early on in the discovery process.

In this class we will explore those universal factors that cause disease.

In that process we will be on the alert to truth versus deception in the modern food industry.

Would you be surprised to know that in the USA we have a corn based food supply? What does that mean in regard to obesity and degenerative disease?


And what does GMO have to do with corn? Do you even know what GMO is? Come to the class and find out how we’re the guinea pigs in this experiment with our food sources.

For a preview of GMO, review these sites:




We will also compare how most Americans eat now and how people in healthy cultures ate in the past. Here’s one small example of how far we have strayed from healthy eating:

Over-fed and malnourished typical “healthy” American annually eats:

  •  756 doughnuts
  •  60 pounds of cakes and cookies
  •  23 gallons of ice cream
  •  7 pounds of potato chips
  •  22 pounds of candy
  •  200 sticks of gum
  •  365 servings of soda pop
  •  134 pounds of sugar
  •  90 pounds of fat

But your healthy ancestor typically ate:

High fiber – slowly releases glucose into the bloodstream – only requires small amount of insulin

  • 1/3 lean animal meat
  • 2/3 unprocessed plant food including:
  •           Mostly vegetables
  •           Some grains
  •           Some fruit
  •           Nuts, seeds
  •           Beans (legumes)

Do your eating habits line up with the typical American’s or your ancestor’s diet?


Personally I have trouble believing the statistic that the typical American eats 756 doughnuts per year. That’s over 2 doughnuts per day. I don’t eat any, so somebody’s eating more than 2 doughnuts per day!

Just the thought of eating a doughnut makes me feel nauseated. All that sugar and fried fat plays such havoc with our bodies.


If we only knew…

The Truth

The truth sets us free…

From disease

From misery

From being a burden to our families

From aborting our God designed awesome destiny

Let the truth about nutrition set you free.

We look forward to your input to our discussions at this lively nutrition class.
