How to Resolve the Health Dangers of Overconsumption
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
 Rev. 8/30/2013

Much of the health related problems today (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis etc.) can be traced to excessive consumptive habits. Many humans in developed countries have adopted an up-paced lifestyle to get ahead in life, which has given rise to a highly destructive, fast foods habit. Tragically, both high stress and excessive consumption impose devastating consequences on human health.

There are a number of theories relating to the causes of rapid biological degradation (aging), illness and disease, however most agree that overconsumption is among the major contributors to most ill health problems. Currently, America as well as most of the developed world is experiencing an epidemic of over consumption, over weight and obesity related ill health problems. It is increasingly clear that over consumption, rapid biological degeneration (aging) illness and disease are closely related.

The latest statistics on obesity are reported by the “Wellness International Network Ltd.” Their statistics are alarming at best or perhaps best described as a rapidly approaching health disaster.

Obesity rates in the USA reach epidemic proportions
- 25% are totally sedentary (no exercise)
- 58 Million are overweight; 40 Million are obese; 3 Million are morbidly obese
- 76% increase in Type II diabetes among adults 30-40 yrs. since 1990
- 78% are failing to get enough healthy exercise
- 80% over age 25 are overweight
Fortunately the news in not all bad. Mexico recently overcame America as the fattest country in the world. Not to make light of this serious problem, but being second in this unhealthy fat epidemic is nothing to be proud of. We are paying dearly for this in terms of lost production, health care cost and early onset of deadly illness and disease followed closely by early death.

More illness and diseases related to overweight/obesity
- 26% High blood pressure
- 30% Gall bladder surgery
- 42% Breast and colon cancer
- 70% Cardiovascular disease
- 80% Type II diabetes

Childhood obesity is at epidemic levels
- 4% were overweight in 1982 & 16% were overweight in 1994 - a 400% increase
- 25% of all white children were overweight in 2001
- 33% of African American and Hispanic children were overweight 2001
- Hospital costs associated with childhood obesity rose from $35 Million in 1979 to $127 Million in 1999 - a 300+% increase

Childhood metabolic & heart problems
- New studies suggest that 25% of overweight children show early signs of (impaired glucose intolerance) type II diabetes
- 60% of which exhibit one or more risk factor for coronary heart disease

Childhood Diabetes surges
- 85% of Children diagnosed with Type II diabetes are obese
- Around 45% of childhood diabetes are type II and associated with obesity
- 4% of Childhood diabetes was type II in 1990, and has risen to approximately 20%, a 500% increase
- Depending on the age group (Type II most frequent 10-19 age group)

Change the tragic health consequences of over consumption and obesity
To make meaningful changes in personal behavior, one must develop strong commitments to the goal of change. This can be accomplished quickly or never depending on the persons level of commitment and circumstances. The most important part of any change is belief. Hoping for change is a passive commitment at best and rarely produces desired results. Belief means you have decided to make the changes, failure is not an option. Those who accomplish remarkable achievements believe in the goal, fully accept personal responsibility and nothing less than success will do. If you want (overweight) to change, you must change (behavior) as overweight is largely a behavior habit (consumption) problem.

Health as well as illness and disease are a process and a byproduct of chronic unhealthy behavior (lifestyle). Because chronic unhealthy behavior is the primary cause of ill health problems, a health behavior change is required for resolution. Frequently, people get satisfactory progress until they reach a particular goal and then revert to old problem causing behavior that result in the return of the original ill health problems. This is irrefutable evidence that, no matter how one believes in external causes for ill health problems, the problem is personal in nature and the only solution is a change to consistent healthy behavior. Usually the answers to health related problems are simple (restore internal biochemical balance).

Health usually boils down to personal responsibility, self-respect and discipline. Freedom from outside influence, manipulation and control comes from taking absolute personal responsibility and action in life to affect a desired outcome. Once people understand that things of value must be earned, and anything free, either has strings attached or has little value, it becomes much easier to take personal responsibility if one values freedom, liberty and personal accomplishment.

  1. Develop a clear understanding of the problem
  2. Develop a path or plan for functional problem resolution
  3. Develop a point of resolution (goal)
  4. Develop the commitment and willpower to stay the course until resolution

Above are the basic steps to resolving all problems including ill health. Like many human problems, developing a plan or strategy for problem resolution is not the biggest obstacle; it is finding the willpower and discipline to effectively executing the plan. Physical and emotional diversions appear along the way that not only impedes forward momentum but many times derail progress and chances for success.

Because over consumption is the primary cause of overweight, obesity and ill health problems, less consumption is the obvious solution. Again, the answer is simple but the solution is hard. While the root cause of over consumption has many variations, all lead to the same general problem, ill health and premature biological degeneration (aging & death). Many would argue that over consumption is a symptom of a problem outside personal control. While this may be the case, trying to resolve any problem by assigning blame to factors outside personal control, summarily rejects a tenant essential for personal problem resolution, personal responsibility.

Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON)
The CRON consumptive regimen is not only an excellent way to reduce weight given any body configuration, it is the only scientifically proven method to lengthen life span in animals and is the healthiest consumptive regimen as well. The CRON principle as the name implies, is restricting calorie intake to only foods of extremely high nutrient density. This is best accomplished by consuming a variety of fresh, raw, organic plant based foods. Interestingly, for all practical purposes, a person can consume as much of these kinds of plant based foods as they want with little risk of over calorie consumption. In addition, these kinds of nutrient dense foods supply the body with essential nutrients required to not only build and repair, but to restore the body to a state of natural optimal health.

Big industries are making huge profits by promoting unhealthy habitual behavior
Yes, unhealthy lifestyle (habits) are at the foundation of many, if not most, of the ill health problems currently confronting modern man. Unfortunately, habits are extremely hard, even seemingly impossible to change. The food, medical and drug industries know this, which is why they continue the perpetual barrage of attractive, compelling advertising to mold habitual consumptive behavior to protect profits, power and control. Think about it, the more people consume the more money the food industries make. Given the current ill health epidemic, directly traced to over consumption of unhealthy foods, over weight and obesity, it is easy to see that not only is the fast food industry making enormous profits but the medical and drug industries are racking in the profits as well from people who are getting sick from chronic unhealthy behavior and consumptive habits.

Now you can see just how difficult this problem has become. There are enormously profitable industries that wheedling enormous influence over those who have the power to change or protect the status quo. It boils done to money and power. The sad reality is, there is much more money, profit and power in fast foods, illness and disease than in health and wellness.

Government control
Currently, the governmental pursuit of change is resulting in fewer choices, less freedom and liberty while increasing control over our personal behavior (central planning - communism/Marxism). Look at how the governments solution to the current ill health epidemic. Instead or increasing healthy choices regarding health care and consumption, they are attempting to reduce personal choices which only serves to protect the industries (food, health care and drug) that created the current chronic ill health behavior and resulting ill health problems.

If a person accepts the current overweight epidemic problem, the door to additional weight swings wide open and so on to obesity, illness and disease. How can a problem be solved by accepting, even rewarding failure? When people understand these facts, most see that the answer is not government control, rather personal responsibility and the benefits of optimal health. There is an old cliché, "we get less of what we reject/penalize and more of what we reward/subsidize."

Remember, no one including the government can give you health. Optimal health comes, not from government mandates, control or entitlement giveaways, but rather from within each person with self respect and personal responsibility. Health is the province of the body only and personal habitual behavior. It is the byproduct or reward of personal respect, proper education, consistent optimally healthy personal behavior and relentless pursuit of personal health excellence.

Weight Loss Advice
It’s very important to remember, while it is possible to loose large amounts of weight quickly, especially in the early stages of a weight loss program (mostly water weight loss), loosing more than 2-3 pounds a week can exert enormous biological stress on the body which may result in increased biological damage (aging). For this reason, it is advisable to focus on developing an optimally healthy lifestyle (form the basis of life goals consisting of healthy emotional, activity and consumptive habits), and pay less attention to the rate and amount of weight lost loss. Rest assured that the body knows exactly what weight to be when optimal health is achieved. Stay the course of optimal health and let time work in your favor.

The answer to resolving all health problems is within everyone’s reach by making a commitment to the course. We must take back our freedom by accepting ultimate personal responsibility. Refer to the 4 steps “The fundamental strategies for solving any problem” above. I invite you to accept the challenge of acquiring the most valuable position in life, optimal health.

HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.

"Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

Important understanding
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

   Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
requires personal excellence,
advances positive action,
strengthens personal power,
promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.
