The Basics of Health and Disease
To truly understand the workings of disease and the effects of toxicity, one must first understand the true definition of health; unfortunately, most believe health to be a physical standard of a specific size and weight, that is absent of chronic disease. This standard of health has been set because of what we have come to consider normal or typical based on the health status of the general population. Anything that deviates from this normal standard is considered unhealthy or diseased, but our standard of normalcy is nothing less than a lesser condition of disease. With this acceptance of normalcy, we have been taught and told that certain conditions of the body are not only acceptable but still fall into the category of healthy regardless of their presence.
