What Is the Cause of Disease?

The body strives to maintain a constant state of homeostasis, or balance. If there is nothing preventing it from doing its job well, it will remain in a high level of vitality and can heal itself from any disease. If the body’s natural healing forces become so overwhelmed that they cannot maintain homeostasis, however, disease will occur.

Stress, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, poor physical fitness, and emotional issues such as fear, grief, and anger are some of the common factors that inhibit the body’s innate healing capacities.
