Dr. Richard Schulze: The Original Natural Health Revolutionary

Wisdom from one of the early pioneers of modern Natural Healing.

12-12-12 Will the World END TODAY?

Dear Friends,

Well, that is a YES, . . . for some, and a big NO for most of us.

Is the world coming to an end? DEFINITELY! Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all learned that piece of positive galactic intel in science class as kids. I remember sitting in 7th-grade with a constant erection, hormones bursting, while some dried up old nerd kept waking me up, telling me that the sun is slowly swelling in size as it cools off and that this “red giant” thing will end in a big explosion. That is if we don’t get hit, like in the movies, by some rock the size of a city bus that could end our planet’s life prematurely and take us all out, like it supposedly did the dinosaurs.

But that is NOT happening today!

I don’t mean to sound sarcastic, but I don’t base my life on the same calendar as the Mayans did (whether it's end is 12/12/2012 or 12/21/2012). Also, I have now lived through about a hundred “end of the world” predictions, from California falling off to the big Millennium end, so I would say that I find them quite boring, except I actually find them very exciting. I will explain why in a few minutes.

OK, so YES, the world will end today, for about 7,000 Americans. In about 15 days by years end, over 2,500,000 (2.5 million) Americans will have died this year, and here is how it breaks down.

About 1 MILLION Americans will be dead from the #1 cause of death, Heart and Circulatory disease, caused from the food that they ate that blocked, clogged, inflamed and damaged their arteries. We know that our food and lifestyle does this, and that this is a “disease of the fork”, simply because this disease does NOT affect and kill people in other countries who eat differently.

About 600,000 will die from malignant neoplasms (cancer). This will happen in spite of the federal government’s official “war on cancer” that was started in 1971, over 40 years ago. In spite of the trillions and trillions of dollars spent on cancer research, and the millions of animals butchered for this research, and the trillions and trillions more spent by private medical research facilities, more people are dying from cancer this year than EVER before in history. Why? The answer is quite simple.

We are trying to find a pill to kill cancer, when the CURE for CANCER is simply STOPPING what we do that causes our body’s cells to mutate and kill us.

Every smart medical doctor and cancer researcher knows exactly what causes cancer—the typical American lifestyle, and the harsh chemicals in it! Their problem is that Americans WILL NOT CHANGE, so they are trying to find yet another chemical that will stop our cells from mutating, in spite of the toxic chemical barrage in what we eat, drink and live. They won’t find it! The only cure for cancer, or any disease for that matter, is to STOP doing what causes the disease in the first place, and START doing what will Create Powerful Health!

The rest of the TOP TEN… In case you are really bored today, the next top causes of American death, in descending order, are Chronic Lower Respiratory Diseases, Accidents, Alzheimer’s Disease, Diabetes, Influenza and Pneumonia (OVER 50,000 Dead Annually), Nephritis (Kidney Disease), Suicide (Yes, at 40,000 a year that means that over 100 people will end their calendar today) and Septicemia (40,000 a year will die from infections, mostly contacted in the hospital), and followed closely by Liver Disease, Hypertension and then Parkinson’s Disease.

OK, why do I find end of the world predictions exciting? It is simply that I use all of these “End of the World” predictions as wake up calls, to re-examine my life, and see where I have ignored it straying off course, where it has wobbled out of alignment, and where I need to sharpen my focus and get my life back on track.

I like to imagine that my life will end today, but I get a six-month or one-year extension, and now that I have this extra time (but I STILL KNOW I will be dead soon) WHAT WILL I DO DIFFERENTLY?

What would YOU do differently if you knew you only had a year to live?

I know what you would do! Less STUFF, More FUN! I know because in the last decade of my practice, almost ALL of my patients were given one to six months to live, so I learned this “end of the world” program really well.

Most people think, “I will work less and spend more time with my family and loved ones”. Most people when faced with the end, besides getting well, they think “work less, play more”, have more FUN, more TRAVEL and have more SEX! Spend more time having fun with family and friends.

When I would hear this on a daily basis in my clinic, I would think to myself, why doesn’t everyone just DO THIS NOW? What are we all waiting for?

Look, I know that we all get very busy in life, really busy, working hard, so we can buy more stuff, and buy more stuff for our kids, so we can have lives filled with more stuff, and then even buy better stuff. And don’t get me wrong, stuff is cool, stuff is fun and I LOVE STUFF! But most of us think “get more stuff now, and play more with the stuff later”, but then we wait so long, later never comes.

Many of us think that our kids need much more stuff, but in reality, they would rather have more quality time with us than more stuff.

So we need to find that balance, between getting more stuff, and better stuff, and taking the time to enjoy the stuff.

Having more fun, more love, and spending more quality time with the people that we love.

So in Closing PLEASE, don’t wait for the world to end, or your world to end, or some medical doctor to tell you that your world is coming to an end, to work a little less, and make yourself a little less busy.

Life is a “limited time offer”, so take the time RIGHT NOW, to manage your time better, to spend more quality time with your family, your loved ones, and spend more time doing the things that you love to do.

Don’t have all the regrets on your deathbed that my patients had.

It is not too late, I don’t think the world will end today, but for a moment, let’s pretend it will. And, when you come up with any regrets, listen to them, and make a plan of how to live your life, paying more attention to what is really important to you.

It is the holiday season my friends, the perfect time for more CELEBRATION—Celebration of Joy, Laughter, Happiness, Love, Bliss—Celebration of LIFE!

Today will be gone tomorrow, so let’s live today like YOU might be gone tomorrow.

What are you waiting for? Let the CELEBRATION begin!
