What is making us sick? We know our lifestyle is the problem, but on this episode of Holistic Survival, we will learn how some common lifestyle choices and cultural beliefs may be a factor in many of our issues, such as migraines, obesity, and breast cancer.  Jason Hartman interviews medical anthropologist and author, Sydney Ross Singer, to shed some light on these problematic factors. Listen for more details at:  www.HolisticSurvival.com. Sydney begins with his newest research on sleep. “People in our culture sleep too flat,” he states, explaining the impact it has on circulation to the brain and body. All sorts of conditions can result, such as migraines, sleep apnea, compression of nerves that can cause carpel tunnel, compression of organs, change in bone structure, and many other traumas to the body that one wouldn’t even consider. These conditions as a result of how we sleep are confirmed by NASA studies of the effect of gravity on fluid pressure in the brain and other parts of the body.
Sydney also talks about compression injuries from tight clothing, including a link between tight braziers and breast cancer. Tight clothing and shoes restrict circulation, causing a back up of fluids in our tissues. Toxins in clothing and pesticides, and the common tonsillectomy are associated with weight gain. Stress levels affect overall health. Sydney encourages people to take responsibility for their own health by eliminating different lifestyle choices and give the body a chance to heal. He recommends people experiment with Self Studies to see what may be causing problems, such as wearing loose clothing for a month, raising the head and feet instead of sleeping flat for a week, going a month without a bra. Many diseases and conditions, especially chronic conditions, may be prevented and cured by a simple alteration in lifestyle.
Sydney Ross Singer is pioneering a new field of health research, called Applied Medial Anthropology, shedding light on many ways our culture is making us sick. Since his work often challenges industries that promote or profit from damaging lifestyles, much of his research has been suppressed and censored, especially by the medical industry. Sydney is trained in biochemistry, anthropology and medicine.
He is the author of many groundbreaking and controversial health books, and the director of the Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease located in Hawaii. He is internationally recognized for his revolutionary and shocking research linking breast cancer with the wearing of tight bras, which he describes in his book, Dressed to Kill. In addition to the link between breast cancer and bras, research at the Institute has discovered the cultural causes of migraines, Alzheimer’s, stroke, sleep apnea, glaucoma, thyroid disease, obesity, diabetes, and more. Amazingly, these problems may be prevented, and cured, at no cost by simply altering one’s lifestyle. The problem is that people are so conditioned to living the way the culture has taught them that they have no idea of what they are doing to themselves.
To assist people in discovering the cultural causes of their personal health issues, Sydney and his wife and co-researcher, Soma Grismaijer, provide an “out of culture” experience on their 70-acre Hawaiian rainforest preserve, which is also a self-sufficient, sustainable, inter-species community. Here people can leave their cultural assumptions and behaviors behind and experience simple, healthy, back to nature living and the renewed health and vitality that comes with it.
