How to Diagnose your Health Status: The 7 Stages of Disease

Thursday 28 June 2012

Have you ever heard someone say, "I can't believe how he suddenly has liver cancer. He seems so healthy all these while." or "I'm so shocked to hear she has breast cancer. I just saw her the other day and she looked fine."

Diseases, especially cancer, never happens suddenly. There is usually much abuse we have put our body through for cancer to finally occur. Orthopathic proponents say there are 7 Stages of Disease our body goes through before arriving at the point of no return. The earlier we become aware of these warning signals and the faster we take action to address them, the better we can maintain our health.

What are these 7 Stages of Disease?

Stage 1 - Enervation
Stage 2 - Toxemia
Stage 3 - Irritation
Stage 4 - Inflammation
Stage 5 - Ulceration
Stage 6 - Induration
Stage 7 - Fungation (Cancer)

Stage 1 - Enervation

Enervation is depletion of energy. It is when not enough energy comes in, and too much energy goes out.

Energy is the essence of life. Our body needs 2 forms of energy to survive and carry out all its functions:
(a) Chemical energy, which comes from a healthy balanced diet. Food produces glucose, the energy source our body cells need.
(b) Vital/nerve energy, or chi, which comes from sunshine, clean water and fresh air.
To keep our energy up, we need to have enough rest and know how to manage our stress level.

There are 5 main areas where our body uses its energy:
- Thinking
- Movement
- Digestion
- Metabolism
- Elimination

When our body is not generating sufficient energy for its daily tasks, it becomes impaired and further diminishes its ability to restore the depleted energy. Our elimination process is the first to shut down. Our body becomes unable to clear out the toxic by-products of metabolism and residue of foods. These un-eliminated wastes accumulate in our body. Eventually, our body becomes overloaded with toxic materials. And this is what causes Toxemia.

Symptoms - tired, sluggish, feel sleepy, loss of appetite, constipation, nausea, does not feel our "normal self".

Stage 2 - Toxemia

Toxemia is accumulation of un-eliminated toxins.  Toxins come from 2 sources:
(a) Internal toxins - our own metabolism (which produces carbon dioxide) and bacteria from fermentation of undigested food.
(b) External toxins - food pesticide, chemical in air and water, medicines.

Our body recognizes this situation and attempts to rid itself of the toxins. Initially, the disease will be of the "acute" type. We may come down with a cold or flu.

Since our body is being prevented from maintaining internal cleanliness, it goes into the default mode of storing the un-eliminated toxins in order to prolong life. This storage of un-eliminated materials interferes with absorption of oxygen and nutrients by our cells and contributes to our internal pollution. Toxins starts to saturate the blood, lymph nodes and tissues of our body. Our body begins to degenerate and sink deeper into disease, resulting in the second type of disease called the "chronic" type, such as heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis.

Symptoms - feel more tired and sluggish, fever, flu, cold, runny nose.

Stage 3 - Irritation

The storage of waste products in our body hinders the assimilation of oxygen and nutrition into our cells. Our cells absorb a lot of water to dilute the waste/toxins that our body has accumulated. As our cells continue to be subjected to the lack of oxygen and food, as well as increased pressure from the water retention, they begin to send out pain signals.

Some warning signals are: itchy skin, nausea, jumpy feeling, prolonged nervousness, depression, anxiety and worry, frequent headaches, minor aches and pains, more difficulty falling asleep, putting on weight, coated tongue, bad breath, increased body odor, sallow complexion, dark circles under the eyes, irregular/heavier menstrual flow.

When the effects of enervation, toxemia and irritation are continuously ignored, the toxic residue builds to an even higher concentration, resulting in Stage 4 of disease.

Stage 4 - Inflammation

Inflammation is our body's most intense effort to cleanse and restore itself. We are alerted of the problem vide the warning signal of actual pain. This is a cleansing, healing mode as our body tries to repair itself. With inflammation, the toxins in our body system have usually been concentrated in a particular area for a massive elimination.

This area becomes inflamed and swollen due to the constant irritation from the toxic substances. The doctors are able to diagnose us with an "itis" problem (literally means "inflammation of") and give it a name:

Tonsillitis - inflammation of the tonsils
Esophagitis - inflammation of the throat
Appendicitis - inflammation of the appendix
Hepatitis - inflammation of the liver
Nephritis - inflammation of the kidneys
Arthritis - inflammation of the joints
Colitis - inflammation of the colon
Lymphadenitis - inflammation of the lymph nodes
Gastritis - Inflammation of the stomach
Dermatitis - inflammation of the skin
Carditis - inflammation of the heart
Ileitis - inflammation of the small intestines

Fever and inflammation are our body's crisis response to a life-threatening situation. It is evidence of increased and intense body activity directed at cleansing and repair. Fever is a healing activity. Unfortunately, when doctors suppress this healing symptom with drugs, it adds to the already high level of toxicity in our body, resulting in the next stage of disease.

Stage 5 - Ulceration

Our body has been exposed to a lot of toxins for such a long time that massive number of cells and tissue have being destroyed. Our body, in sensing the need to eliminate the accumulated toxins, forms an ulcer (eg. an opening on the skin) as an outlet to rid itself of toxins. This condition is often very painful because there are exposed nerves. The ulcer will heal when the level of toxemia is sufficiently lowered, and the poisons and toxins have been discharged out.

Modern medicine views ulcers as negative and applies cream, lotion, antibiotics etc in an attempt to stop and heal the ulcers, never realizing what this physiological process is demonstrating, i.e. its the body's natural way to expel the toxic substance out.

So, an ulcer can be viewed as a consequence of body degeneration, or the action by our body to prolong life and maintain its remaining health.

Stage 6 - Induration

Induration is the thickening and hardening of the tissues when our body attempts to protect itself. The toxic material is ring-fenced in a sack of hardened tissue, to stop it from spreading freely throughout our body. This hardened tissue is known by names such as tumor, growth or fibroid. The formation of "water blisters", corn or callous are also forms of induration.

Induration is the last stage when the body can still control its cells. If we take corrective measures and change our habits, then the warnings throughout these 6 stages will stop. But if we continue to ignore the warning signals and let the poisoning continue, our cells will become parasitic.

Stage 7 - Fungation / Cancer

This is the final point of the long development of disease and it is usually fatal. In a healthy person, each groups of cells perform their respective functions to benefit our body as a whole. However, when our internal conditions have deteriorated to the extent that normal aerobic process is no longer possible, the cells change and start to survive by anaerobic process.

For example, the plane you're in crashes in a place where there is no food. You want to remain alive. You may end up eating your fellow passengers in order to continue surviving.

Likewise, our cells multiply haphazardly in an unorganized manner. They live in a toxic environment without oxygen and no longer can be controlled by our brain. They become parasitic, living off whatever nutrients they can obtain in order to survive, yet contributing nothing to our body in return. They have turned into cancer cells.


So, there you have it - the 7 Stages of Disease is how you can diagnose the status of your health.

Cancer is the expected consequence of toxemia, unless we get rid of the toxins and slowly expose our mutated cells to oxygen and convert them back to normal cells. In other words, when we supply our body with high quality nutrients, increase its vitality, lower the level of toxins, our body can begin to repair and rebuild.

During the healing process, the toxic waste matter will be stirred up and return to the bloodstream to be eliminated from the body. It is not comfortable, but is a necessary process for healing to occur. Do not suppress it by taking drugs. Be patient and give it time to go through the process. Our state of health will retrace backward the same path that leads us to the disease in the first place.
