Why Is Our Society So Sick?

By Hilde Larsen

As someone who suffered from long term chronic illness, I found that looking for health became much easier once I understood why I was sick. When I realized what I had been doing to myself, it became crystal clear to me why I was suffering. While everything is perfect in nature, what we have become by moving away from it is not. It has created suffering. WE have created suffering.

Being sick is not natural, being healthy is. It is what we are designed to be. There is nothing natural about having a body that is imbalanced, tired, sick and in pain.

There are no so called dis-eases in nature. There are no animals with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or asthma. I have never read or heard of any wild animal suffering with any so-called chronic disease. They are not allergic to the foods that they eat, and they do not get fat and tired. When they get sick, from bacteria, or a trauma, they lie down and rest, drinking only water, so that their body can heal and restore. Regeneration is therefore supported, and nature can take its course. The first time I read this, I “knew” it was important.

You see, in nature, every species lives in harmony with Mother Earth. From living in harmony with sunrise and sundown, the seasons are honored, and food is gathered and killed for survival. Eating is not linked to suppressing emotions or feeding different types of addictions. Nature has a perfectly harmonic way of existing, and the further away from that harmony that we stray, the more trouble we are in. The further from truth that we wander, the more despair we will experience. As a species, we as humans keep drifting away from our natural path. This is where healing got lost and dis-ease manifested.

Our path has been lost to us in many different ways, and we are now living the sum of our actions and ignorance. We are experiencing cause and effect, pure and simple. The cause being not honoring creation, and the effects being illness, stress, pain and depression. Violence, anxiety, fear and frustration, are all part of the same manifestation. The one we as humans created, and we as individuals can change one step, one bite, one thought and emotion at a time.

From once living barefoot in nature, we are now living in high-rises, surrounded by wireless electromagnetic radiation. This is a huge deal for our cells. The electromagnetic noise is hitting us from many different sources. Our wireless communication devices, including wireless power meters, cell phones, cell towers, wireless routers and cordless phones, expose us to both electric and magnetic fields (EMF). Anything that has a cord, or a plug emanates an electric field. That includes all appliances, electric wiring, power outlets and extension cords. On top of this we are also exposed to power lines. Some are above the ground where you can see them, but many are below.

But what makes this such a health hazard? Why is this not something that our cells and vibration thrive from being around? Why are we suffering from living in this environment? I believe the key word is vibration. Our cells will get distorted from being exposed to a vibration that causes stress and dissonance. The frequencies are distorting the natural vibration of our cells, also inducing oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress is simply defined as a disturbance in the natural balance between the production of free radicals and the antioxidant defenses. It is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.

Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons. They can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed, these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominos. They can then create real danger, even at the DNA level! Now the cells get sick and die, but this is where nature has a solution, the antioxidants. They are our defense system against free radicals, found in abundance in any living natural food. What we see as colors in living fruits are antioxidants.

So, you see, all we need to do is to look around, and we will realize how far we have drifted. From being a tropical species, born without any clothes or shoes, we are walking on rubber soles, covered from head to toe to keep warm and fashionable. We even need the shoes to be comfortable, for support. Our body was not made for walking without shoes, so we need support and padding, really? We are now disconnected from the vibrations of the Earth, from the negative ions that nurture our cells. All this EMF disturbance, the electromagnetic smog, is subjecting us to positive ions, disturbing our cells in their natural healing and regeneration. We are experiencing decay and cell mutation, instead of natural vitality and strength.

I will keep this simple, as that is all we need to know; simplicity. When we spend time surrounded by cell-phones, computers and power lines, we are out of calm. We are in a space of stress and degeneration. When we are in nature, we are in a healing space of harmony for all our cells. Simple, yet hard to live by in this modern world.

Our lives even include travelling by airplanes, walking around in high-tech airports, driving cars and busses, underground and over ground. We are constantly bombarded with the frequencies and energies of instruments and vibration. The artificial lighting and the recirculated air are contributing to more cellular and mental stress. This might all sound very depressing, and in a sense, it is.

We are sick as an effect of our lifestyles, as a direct and honest effect. We are living the life that we created.

We even made food our enemy, so to speak. We made food something that is no longer nurturing and healing. What we eat affects every single cell in our body, positively or negatively. We are being presented with what looks like food and is perceived as food, but in truth is not. Supermarkets are filled with boxes and cans, bags and plastic bottles, all filled with substances that are a burden to the human body. Processed and altered, filled with anything from plastic to wood pulp.

Our food is also genetically modified (GMOs), which means they have been manipulated using recombinant DNA techniques. It is not possible nor desirable in nature to transfer genetic material between organisms. The concept of genetic modification brings about alterations in genetic composition, and in the properties of the organism developed. The technique is highly mutagenic and leads to changes in the DNA and the proteins produced by the GMO. Is this what we want to serve our children? Even seeds are being altered today. We are tampering with nature, creating mutation of cells, and a body that does not even recognize what we eat, as food. It’s all poisons rather, and that is serious business. The DNA being altered and the tampering with our food also leads to toxic and allergic reactions. Nature is perfect as it is, and by altering any part of it we create trouble, big trouble.

GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are presented within about 70 percent of processed foods: Our corn, soy, cottonseed, canola, and sugar beet-based ingredients. According to “Seeds of Deception”, GMOs can cause organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. (Learn more here.)

We are merely scratching the surface of understanding what altering and tampering with our foods are doing to us. We are accepting the most dangerous paths of them all, the road of starvation and self-poisoning. Yes, starvation. Unless we are eating fresh produce, we are not serving the body the nutrients that it needs. Instead, we are eating what will keep us malnourished by clogging up our system. We are consuming nutrient-lacking food that has been altered to the point of complete unrecognition, and the body will react to it as poison. It makes us constipated, as the body is trying to hold on to it, to store it away. Also, the lack of fiber and natural enzymes will leave the body unable to get rid of the waste created. Mostly we are not aware that the intestines are where most of the absorption happens, through the villi of the small intestines. Foods like pizza, bread, hotdogs, hamburgers, processed, powdered, canned, fried and baked are all a burden to our perfect machinery. Our bodies are not meant to be hit with such massive amounts of poisons.

We are suffering and being sick has become something normal. How could it not? We are feeding ourselves sickness, and that is what we are experiencing. Cause and effect, simple.

Visiting the fresh produce department can be very deceiving. The organic, naturally grown food, now has to be labeled for us to be able to find what used to be just food, it has to be labeled organic. Only a few see the benefits of paying extra money for clean food, but the number is constantly rising. The pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides are not adding health to the table, so be aware. The amounts of poison served on our plates are over the top, and we are living the effects. We are on toxic overload. Our deli foods, like processed meat, are filled with Sodium Nitrite/Nitrate, linked to what has been labeled as cancer, which means it’s damaged cells. So, in reality, everything that we have talked about, the EMF´s, what is being sprayed on our produce, the GMO, are all making the body react in the same way, damaging cells.

We are damaging our cells by leaving out real foods, poisoning the body, but also by hindering elimination. Our great grandparents would have had a hard time recognizing 80% of what is today sold in a typical supermarket as food.


Through our food-choices and stressful jobs, we are headed down that same old road of dis-ease and so-called age-related discomforts. The whole scenario of chasing life itself has become an obstacle that needs to be overcome. We are eating what is not perceived as food, and we are living a life that is not in harmony with who we really are.

Can you see how many factors are impacting our health? And now that we are not feeling well, we go searching for what is missing. In all the wrong places. The search for happiness, the constant eagerness to perform and do good, is also stripping us of our natural calm and defense. The balance is lost between meetings and duties, house chores and social engagements. From being so conditioned into a life of doing, constantly striving for recognition and feeling good enough, we suffer from the lack of ever getting there. The chase becomes the life, and the suffering represents the lost path. Being happy is natural and being healthy is too.

It is clear as day, the burden we have created for our body and soul, and it is dark as night, the consequence that we suffer.

It is no longer natural to spend the day outside, and a great part of the world is living without being exposed to sunshine for months at the time. Too many have an indoor job, leaving them completely depleted of the life-giving sunshine we all need so much. Nature is perfect in creation, and we are a part of that perfection. Our houses are getting larger, and we go to health clubs to exercise. Instead of being outside where we would gain healing, restoration and fresh air, we stuff ourselves in these health clubs and fitness centers.

Our God given fresh air has also been polluted by geoengineering particulate (“chemtrails”) and most people are not even aware of this fact. Long-lasting trails left in the sky by high-flying aircrafts are called chemtrails and are believed to be chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed into our skies. This is a topic of much interest and controversy. You see, normal contrails dissipate relatively quickly, chemical trails do not. They leave a veil and then clouds, blocking sunlight. Fresh air is our lifeline. We are dependent on it.

Another topic of great concern for our health is vaccines. We are being bombarded with vaccine options and scare tactics, leaving us lost and in fear of living in a pure and natural way. We have been lead to believe that we need living viruses and bacteria, formaldehyde, mercury, human albumin, toxic levels of aluminum and much more, to protect our health. Instead, now we are looking at autism and neurological damage as a very possible effect of our acceptance of these shots. We are submitting our children to pure poison, and nature was never about us having to do anything to poison ourselves, never. This is how far we have strayed, and this is how numbed down we have gotten. This has become our normal, in this world where true health no longer seems to be on the agenda. I am not for one moment hesitant to say that vaccines are a hazard to our health. There are countless books written on the topic. And the helpless parents of children that change and never regain their health after their vaccinations are heartbreaking to read about. I honor Jenny McCarthy for being a spokesperson and a role model for vaccinated autistic children. She healed her son from vaccine induced autism. Yes, you heard me, autism! [1]

Our so-called health system is based on chemicals and surgery, on poisons, taking out what is not working, and repairing by instruments. Always looking at the symptom, finding remedy by suppressing the symptoms, not true healing of the causes of dis-ease. A good surgeon is a true blessing, and the Emergency rooms save lives every single minute of the day. There is a place for all trauma and acute life-saving procedures, but the suppressing of symptoms we can do without. When you or anyone is labeled chronic, trouble is ahead. The body is in the need of healing, and the truth is now going to be hidden and buried.

Always looking for the magic pill, keeps us in the dark. It keeps us away from true health. We are sick because we stopped listening to our bodies and fell for the marketed easy-fix-pill.

So, you see, we need not wonder why we are sick, but rather spend our time and energy looking towards health and vitality. It is right under our noses, as it always was. We were never meant to be sick, it is not natural. When we are hurt, and we know that accidents do happen, we can still do our very best to live in harmony with nature and the Creation.

We need to look towards restoring our health, not the masking of symptoms. We are standing in line, holding out our hands for a pill. The pill that locks you in its prison, wanting and needing more. What we do not know can hurt us big time. The Health Food field has continued down this road of fixing symptoms, by producing isolates in form of chemically made vitamins and minerals. The body does not do isolates. Nature is perfect, and there are no isolates in nature. Our minds are affecting our ability to think, one might say, or our ability to reason. Health has become the largest industry in the world, and sadly Mr. Money is the captain of the ship. The ship is sinking, and we are all watching it go under.

We are sick because we gave away our authority,

We are sick because we forgot that we were sovereign beings,

We are sick because we lost our quest for true health,

We are sick because we accepted the labels of dis-ease,

We are sick from not daring to step out of the norm,

And we are sick because we lost our faith in God and nature.

As we have been misled and misguided, confusion and lack of self-love has also become a great obstacle to overcome when it comes to true health. By that I mean that not loving ourselves is why we are not treating ourselves with the best care that there is. This lack of self-love is what allows us to keep hurting and punishing ourselves. We need to realize that we are all worth it. We are all worth having healthy, amazing lives. It’s natural to be healthy, and happiness is a choice. You are worth it, every single bit of it. Every day, walking towards the life that you desire, you will realize that you are worthy. You just need to know that you want it, to start walking. And you just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other to get there. That is how we accomplish anything. One day at the time. One step, one bite, one thought and one spoken word at a time.

There was never anything wrong with who we were, or the way that we were meant to live. We became too smart, too greedy and too caught up in our minds to see where we were heading. Now we see, and now we know. When we know better, we can do better!
