The Cause of Disease
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
Which comes first, Inflammation or Free Radical Damage? And does it really matter? Our bodies depend upon 11 amino acids, Omega-3 fatty acids, and the wide variety of vitamins and minerals. Disease is caused by a deficiency of any one of these, or an excess of a few, as well as relatively small amounts of toxic chemicals. In the last 100 years toxic chemicals have multiplied faster than rabbits! From DDT to MSG, and now genetically modified and artificial “foods”, to electromagnetic pollution, our cells and genes are bombarded by “foreign” and damaging environmental forces.
For over a decade, I have measured free radical production in many hundreds of individuals and at least 99% of people are producing 2 to 5+ free radical by-products. These damaged cell walls come out in the urine as malondialdehyde, easily monitored with the Oxi-Data ? test. (Oxi-Data Free Radical Test Kit). It is the only simple test which you can do at home to evaluate how your body is respo0nding to day to day challenges!
Inflammation requires a much more elaborate blood test, High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, which certainly needs to be done when there are symptoms of major inflammation. When there is major inflammation, then I recommend Fire Bliss applied daily.
For those in relatively good health, I strongly recommend testing free radicals. The only method I have found for reducing free radicals 80% or more is daily stimulation of the Ring of Crystal with Crystal Bliss! This may well be the simplest, safest, easiest way to reduce free radical damage and the inflammation free radicals cause!
