Our health care industry is really a disease management industry


All of a sudden, everyone is talking about health care reform. From corporations like Wal-Mart to the Demonocrats in the House and Senate, it seems that everyone – business, government and the public – recognizes that our health care system is broken and needs to be fixed. But so far, nobody in any position of power has offered a plan that would actually make Americans healthier and therefore prevent disease.

Yes, there’s lots of so-called “reform” schemes being tossed around, but if you take a closer look you’ll find that they’re all just financial shell games that pass the buck on who pays for a diseased population.

Our health care industry is really a disease management industry that is based on maximizing profits while keeping the American people in a state of chronic degenerative disease while pushing drugs, surgery and other treatments that do nothing to address the causes of poor health in the first place.

Nobody teaches disease prevention and nobody in power has a plan for actually making us healthier.

What we need in the U.S. is genuine health care reform legislation that essentially eliminates the sick care industry (conventional medicine) and starts giving us the information and resources needed to prevent disease in the first place.

Since any real progress in health care legislation is nothing but a pipe dream because there are way too many jobs and investors tied up in the continued “diseasification” of the American people to expect any real reform, I thought I would add my two cents in what should happen.

America has become a disease economy that needs to keep the disease racket running just to post decent economic gains. And no politician who wants to stay in office will dare recommend that Americans should actually be taught how to stay healthy and prevent disease because a healthy population would devastate conventional medicine, the cancer industry, drug companies and health care jobs.

The following issues are those that Congress should pass but won’t. Why? Because too many powerful corporations and influential non-profit organizations actually depend on diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease for their continued existence.

  • Teach the incredible benefits of a natural food, vegan diet and lifestyle in the public schools.   
  • Ban aspartame, water fluoridation and mercury filling.
  • End FDA corruption and radically reform this criminal agency.
  • Require open source publication of all clinical drug trials, even the negative results.
  • Ban direct-to-consumer drug advertising on TV.
  • Stop junk food and soda advertising to children.
  • Overhaul national dietary guidelines to benefit consumers, not big business.
  • Ban the use of known cancer-causing additives in the food supply.
  • End censorship for nutritional supplement manufacturers.
  • Require food manufacturers to list acrylamides, pesticides, heavy metals content and GMO’s.
  • Outlaw cancer-causing chemicals and fragrances in personal care products.
  • Launch public service ad campaigns that teach consumers how to tell the difference between healthy vs. unhealthy food and grocery products.
  • End the pharmaceutical industry’s FDA-enforced drug monopoly.
  • End patent protection for genes, seeds and medicines.

And why is there a better chance of a blizzard in Hawaii than these measures ever being allowed to pass?

Because the profit-minded medical industry and big pHaarma would lose billions and hundreds of thousands of people who depend upon the continuation of disease would be out of a job. Making people healthier would be devastating to the economy in the short term.

The corrupt politicians and government regulators who continue to run the country want to maintain the status quo of keeping the public in a state of continued disease, with no cures available, so that all those businesses and organizations that count on the continuation of degenerative disease don’t have to downsize.

Do not ever think that the disease epidemics sweeping our nation don’t have solutions. We already know how to prevent and cure asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, depression, ADD and ADHD, and most other degenerative diseases. The reason they are not prevented and cured is because it is not in the interests of those in power to have a healthy population.

Most of the laws on the books today were designed and pushed by corporations so they serve the interests of those corporations. And, it is not in the interests of these powerful corporations to see a healthy population that avoids disease

Understand this: Americans are intentionally kept in a state of disease because that is what produces the maximum profits for the corporations that own this country.

Once you realize this, you understand 99% of the real problem with health care. It’s not about who pays, or how much they pay, or what kind of discounts can be negotiated… it’s about ending the conspiracy to keep us sick.

So, when it comes to health care, don’t expect any legislative miracles from either political party. Even a massive switch to socialized medicine, assuming it could happen, is still useless unless we start teaching disease prevention. Unless you actually prevent disease and fundamentally improve the health of the people, no structure of health care coverage will save us from a near-certain future: a population trapped in a system of disease proliferation that will ultimately cause the collapse of the U.S. economy and the end of America as we know it.

Of course, you can always “race for the cure” if you’re really stupid enough to think that running around in circles, raising money for Big Pharma via a corrupt non-profit organization, is going to solve this problem.

Without question, the healthiest people in the U.S. are those that operate outside the health care system. Health care reform doesn’t matter to them because they’ve already reformed their own health by taking control of their health and putting it back in their hands. They make informed choices about food, medicine and exercise, they rarely, if ever, see doctors and they are skeptical, informed, and healthy consumers.

It’s a nice bandwagon to be on. It just takes a little effort, determination and the desire to not give your money to people that will only treat your symptoms with drugs and surgery.




“Treat the cause. Not the Symptom.”


Hesh Goldstein
When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
