The Actual Top Killer Worldwide
The World Health Organization lists COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) as the #3 killer worldwide,lower respiratory infections at #4, and cancer of trachea, bronchus, and lung collectively at #5 cause of deaths worldwide.
That is, the #3, #4, and #5 causes of human death around the planet all have to do with the respiratory tract.
(Ischaemic heart disease and stroke are #1 and #2)
If you put these three sets of symptoms together - that is, COPD, lower respiratory infections, and cancer of the trachea, bronchus, and lung - respiratory illness is hands-down the number one killer on the planet. (Plus there are several more respiratory symptoms that aren't even mentioned in the three categories that the World Health Organization lists)
So, as far as mortality rates go, respiratory illness is actually the clear "winner."
What's not clear is why the individual symptoms form, why respiratory illness affects different people differently in different parts of the world ...or what to do about respiratory illness.
Why do some people have asthma while some people are prone to chest infections?
Why do people who've been healthy their whole life get lung cancer, but others slowly deteriorate into COPD?
Why is tuberculosis common in some parts of the world and virtually unknown in others?
Important New Scientific Knowledge
What most health practitioners don’t know (because it's a very new discovery), is that health symptoms that affect the respiratory system follow the laws of nature.
Strictly follow the laws of nature.
This realization opens up a whole new strategy for healing and then maintaining healthy breathing for the rest of your life.
Once you realize how and why nature creates these symptoms …a whole new strategy for healing and for maintaining healthy breathing throughout your life will open up for you.
Once you understand the logic with which Nature has devised both your body and the events that happen to your body, you'll also know what you need to do to create wellbeing.
In Episode 6 of the Mind Over Symptom Podcast, "Mind Over Respiratory Illness," you get a framework for understanding the predictable, structured, and logical process that underlies every symptom from a tickle in your throat all the way to lung cancer.
