Does civilization make us sick?
Dear friends of chronic health,
In a recent report by the Techniker Krankenkasse, the frightening development of the so-called diseases of civilization up to 2030 and 2050 is presented.
We count diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, dementia, hypertension, cancer and stroke as civilization diseases. The latter is expected to increase by 37% by 2030 and by 62% by 2050.
Dementia is projected to increase by 113% by 2050. I'll spare you the other numbers because they are unimaginable for me.
...can and could these frightening numbers come about? Our grandparents and great-grandparents didn't even know about these diseases.
Well, in the course of evolution, humans have changed only slightly in their genetic structure.
But the environment? When I consider that I didn't get my first mobile phone until I was 27 (and only for work), this is simply unimaginable for today's youth.
Dad didn't drive us to the classroom in the SUV either. The motto was: "Have fun on the way to school"...on foot or by bike, in the rain and snow. A highlight when we were picked up from school on Saturdays.
Nourishment? We ate what Mother Nature had in store for us at the time of year. Apples, freshly picked from the tree, were a treasure.
TV? That was only at selected times; otherwise creativity was the order of the day.
Now compare that to today. We really counted as Neanderthals.
Time for self-responsibility!
We have a choice: complaining that everything used to be better or accepting what is. I advocate the latter. Few of us will be able to meditate in the lotus position for three hours a day or crawl into a cave from the stresses of everyday life.
So we can adapt to the circumstances. There are no excuses for exercise and fasting on TV and mobile phones. The "parts" also have an "off switch" that we are welcome to use once.
Unfortunately, harvesting your own potatoes is also not possible for most of them; however, it should be possible to buy fruit and vegetables from local farmers or a nearby farm. There are markets in almost every city.
Take control of your life NOW!
We can do something; each of us in our own way. Since fruit and vegetables unfortunately no longer contain the vital substances , we can use the second best option: ethically produced food supplements such as our blueberries from blueantox . Their valuable ingredients can help the liver and intestines to cope with all the environmental stresses.
The aspect of balance is also important to me at the moment. Due to the external circumstances, we often really falter. Here, too, the blueantox can provide us with excellent support, for example because blueantox-sport has a positive effect on the lung and kidney meridians . Life energy can be strengthened.
I sincerely wish you a stable center and lots of sun for you and your loved ones
Yours and yours Jutta Suffner
