Did you know that wherever you are, there’s a good chance you are near at least 3 everyday items that are slowly killing you?

Based on over 20 years of Naturopathic research, Dr. Donald Monus and author David Hamilton have created a powerful life-saving book, proving that serious diseases are often caused by our modern way of life.
Little things we take for granted in this day and age are revealed to cause countless health problems.
Working with volunteers, Dr. Monus has taught numerous people how to live their lives differently to improve their health. Whether these changes involve diet, lifestyles or attitudes, one thing is certain; they work!
Many volunteers have proven to themselves that simply changing their lifestyles can reverse chronic, life-threatening diseases!

What's Killing You?



We have become a society on drugs. We’re not talking about the illegal kind like cocaine or heroin, although they are a serious problem, we’re talking about every item sitting in your medicine cabinet or on the shelf in the drug store or Health and Beauty section of any department or grocery store.

In the early part of the 20th century, medicines were taken much more seriously than they are today. Then, about the most powerful thing you could get from your druggist without a prescription, was aspirin. It’s almost as though we’ve forgotten how important it is to look at medications seriously.

Have you watched any TV commercials lately? You can barely go an hour without some drug being advertised that you should “ask your doctor about.” Many of these drug advertisements don’t even tell you what the drug is for, yet they are telling you to ask your doctor about it! What’s even worse is listening to the side effects of these drugs. Usually the ‘common’ side effects are, diarrhea, nausea, headache, loss of appetite, fatigue, sexual side effects and in rare cases, bleeding without warning.

Now let’s be realistic here. After listening to something like this, why would anyone even bother to ask about these drugs, let alone take them? Especially the ones that don’t even list the condition they are supposed to treat! From the sound of the side effects, some are worse then the diseases they are supposed to cure!

The worst thing that’s happened in recent years is a proliferation of every kind of medicine imaginable. Many of the former prescription drugs have been reduced in strength so they can be bought over the counter without a prescription. When you think about that, it’s crazy.

As a society, we’ve been watching TV and trying to fit our symptoms to some drug on the shelf so we can be cured overnight. As a result, slowly but surely, we’ve been taking more and more medications for every little thing. Our bodies get so used to having support from these drugs that they don’t want to do any work for themselves anymore. Now you might think that isn’t such a bad thing. After all, you can just keep taking cold medication, for example, when you’re sick and there’s no problem with that. But there is a problem.

In the last chapter we touched on a few of the things that can damage your body from the outside. In this chapter we deal more with the things that can damage your body from the inside. Things like parasites and funguses, and their role in diseases, regularity, harmful ingredients in almost every food you eat, and that dreaded word, exercise. Don’t be alarmed by the discussion to follow because if you want to live a long, healthy, high-quality life, you need to take steps now, not in the future when you become seriously ill.

Parasites are everywhere. Pretty much everyone has them and you can’t avoid them no matter how you live or what you do. How do we know this? Simple. When volunteers come to us, we look at their blood in a microscope. We don’t send it off to some lab; we actually look at it. Then, after we look at it, we let the volunteer look at it and tell them what they are looking at. If you want to see an impact on someone who you are trying to teach to live healthier, have that person look at a sample of his or her own blood in a 15,000 power microscope. It gets their attention.

In almost every case we have studied, we have found one or more parasites present in the blood. Now don’t let anyone kid you about parasites being harmless. Most of all, don’t fall for the “everyone has them” statement. While there are a slight few nematodes that are beneficial because they produce enzymatic reactions within the intestines, most parasites are just that, parasites. We have heard all the statements from medical experts about how everyone has them and they are nothing to worry about, blah, blah, blah, but that’s only true in the slight few beneficial parasites that are obtained through eating fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. The rest of them cause very serious damage inside of us.

Why do you think they call them parasites? A parasite needs a host to live on. Without a host, they die. This means they must eat the host to live. Got your attention yet? Put simply, when you have them, parasites eat you from the inside out. The trick in helping yourself is not avoiding them, because you simply can’t do that. The trick is in knowing how to manage them and stop them from doing too much damage when you pick them up. The diets and maintenance programs listed later in this book will help you keep them at bay.

Dead Trees Review
What's Killing You and What to Do About It, Donald Monus and David Hamilton, 1st Books (AuthorHouse), 2004

Many health, diet and how-to-live-longer books are currently on the market. This one comes from the perspective of 20 years of Naturopathic research by Monus, looking at the diseases caused by our modern way of life.

There are times when taking antibiotics is a very good idea, but they should not be taken every day, like a multi-vitamin. Not only will the body build up an immunity to antibiotics, so that higher and higher doses will be needed, but each dose will weaken the body's immune system until it can barely handle the common cold.

Even if you don't take antibiotics every day, you are still taking antibiotics every day. How? Cows, pigs, chickens and other meat animals are given large doses of antibiotics and other chemicals every day to keep them healthy during their short lives. Antibiotics have been found in the water supply which is sprayed on crops that make it to your dinner table and in the water that comes out of your faucet. Just wait until next winter's cold and flu season meets all those weakened immune systems.

Another item that is slowly creating havoc with your immune system is your bedside alarm clock/radio. Electric devices like that give off harmful RF (radio frequency) energy anywhere up to two feet in every direction. You may be sleeping in a field of RF energy. If you sit in front of a computer for long periods of time, you are sitting in a giant bubble of RF energy. The computer, monitor, surge suppressor, printer and any other nearby components are all giving off energy that is wiping out your immune system. And then there are cell phones, another source of RF energy, seemingly glued to the ears of most people.

One of the major causes of disease are parasites and viruses that enter the body through a surprising number of ways. They won't show up on the average blood test, because no one actually looks at blood under a microscope any more. Once the patient has flushed their system of parasites and adopted a much healthier diet (the book tells how), the effects of even major diseases like multiple sclerosis and cancer have been severely reduced or even totally reversed.

This book is meant to be used in addition to, not instead of, regular medical treatment. A major recommendation of the authors is that each person should take responsibility for their health; don't leave it for the medical profession. I have read this book twice and can only say Wow. It is very easy to read, quite eye-opening (some might call it radical) and extremely highly recommended.
