Have you ever heard the statement 'Death Begins in the Colon?' Because there are so many deaths attributed to bowel problems it is believed that the colon is where most diseases begin.
I believe a truer statement would be, 'The foundation of all disease begins in the mind'. Each of us are a product of our education, our belief system and our practices. If someone lacks proper education and understanding as to how the body works and the care it needs it will be impossible to know what to give it to function optimally. If someone believes that the body is so resilient that it matters not what they eat, they will then serve their taste and follow unhealthful practices and through this means destroy the health.
