A book that is doing the rounds right now and becoming very popular is “The One Minute Cure: The Secret To Healing Virtually All Diseases“. The book quotes examples of people with (amongst other things) advanced cancer and HIV/AIDS returning to full health.
As regular readers will know, I am not a fan of the pharmaceutical companies and I am interested in alternative health methods. I therefore brought the book and I thought I would share my humble opinion with you.
Firstly though, I will emphasise that although I consider myself to be quite well informed, I have no medical training and this is just my opinion. It should not be considered as medical advice.
I did not agree with all that was said in the book, but its bottom line reasoning does make a lot of sense to me. The book reasons that as our bodies are 70% to 80% water and water is 89% oxygen (by weight); then our bodies are 62% to 71% oxygen. We can go without food and drink for days or even weeks, but will only last minutes without oxygen. Oxygen really is THE most important element for human life. We always feel better for a bit of fresh air, yet sluggish when staying indoors or in a smoky environment for too long.
Viruses, pathogenic bacteria and even cancer cells are anaerobic (thrive without oxygen) whilst the useful probiotic bacteria are aerobic (need oxygen). So every cell in our body as well as the good bacteria that supports our life, all need a good supply of oxygen; whilst viruses, pathogenic bacteria and defective cells (like cancer cells) die in the presence of too much oxygen. The One Minute Cure continues that we seldom get enough oxygen, especially if we live in areas of high pollution (always associated with higher disease rate and chemical sensitivity).
The One Minute Cure also quotes a theory stating that viruses and pathogenic bacteria do not in themselves cause disease, they look for an environment that they can thrive in (low oxygen). I would argue that viruses and pathogens do actually cause disease, but obviously a well oxygenated body will fight the disease a lot more efficiently.
So bearing in mind than most of us do not have the time to spend all day on a mountain side practising deep breathing exercises, how do we efficiently oxygenate our bodies every day?
The One Minute Cure gives two main methods, the first being ozone therapy. Oxygen is usually in the form of O2, that is 2 oxygen atoms joined together. Ozone is O3, which is 3 oxygen atoms joined together. You can see then that ozone provide an extra oxygen atom which obviously helps to super-oxygenate the body. However, specialist equipment is needed and it can not easily be self administered. If you go to a therapist, it can get expensive too.
The other method is much simpler and much more available. It is simply to dilute an easily obtainable oxygen rich substance in pure water. However, it comes with a warning as it can be dangerous if not applied properly:
1. It must be diluted properly
2. It must be food grade (no other grade)
3. It must be taken several hours apart from food
If the guidelines are followed, then it is very safe, very cheap and supposedly very effective. I am not going to name the substance here because to be blunt, I don’t want to be responsible for somebody not doing it right, harming themselves or their loved ones and then blaming me. I won’t take that responsibility, so get the book and do it right.
Where I did not completely agree with the book is that it slates the pharmaceutical companies and the nutritional supplement industry. I agree with most of what it says about the pharmaceutical companies, but I do acknowledge that we need them for some things (when natural methods are exhausted). As for the nutritional supplements industry, I agree that there are a lot of products that do not live up to their claims or hype and are a waste of money. However, with a bit of research you can find some very powerful nutritional supplements, yet The One Minute Cure (although not saying it outright) gives the impression that all nutritional supplements are a waste (which I can not agree with). That said, the best nutritional supplements do tend to be more expensive, yet the One Minute Cure does offer a much cheaper alternative, that potentially may do the same job.
It also refers to colloidal silver stating that it can turn you blue (yawn – not that one again)! I have answered that one so many times I will not bother here, but again The One Minute Cure does insinuate the worst case scenario, rather than a balanced overview.
It also quotes that 15,000 European doctors, naturopaths and homeopaths have administered this substance to over 10 million patients. Without actually saying so, it gives that impression that this substance was administered in isolation. However, I suspect that it was administered as part of a protocol along with other supplements (just my guess).
Overall however, I thought The One Minute Cure made a lot of sense and though I have doubts that it can completely cure virtually all diseases on its own, it does make sense that it will assist the body in fighting most diseases, viruses and pathogens, and increase the chances of returning to health. I also believe that it is a good cheap maintenance method to help prevent you from getting ill in the first place (much cheaper than the best nutritional supplements). I have some of the substance on order and am looking forward to trying it out. I’ll let you know what I find.
