Dr. Paul Marik, an esteemed physician and author of 500 peer-reviewed journal articles, presents a striking assessment in an interview with The Epoch Times. “The current medical system is in desperate need of a reawakening. It’s a broken system where big pharma dominates medicine and large nutrition companies control the food industry. There appears to be a rather sinister alliance aimed at keeping Americans unhealthy, fueling a vicious cycle of disease and drug dependence, without offering curative solutions,” he avers.
Dr. Marik’s eye-opening insights emerged from a comprehensive discussion about the crucial role of Vitamin D.
“Consider our ancestors' lifestyle. They dwelled in caves, savored the tranquility of darkness, and appreciated the physiological benefits of melatonin production, facilitated by an optimally functioning Pineal gland,” explains Dr. Marik. “But our modern lifestyle, riddled with artificial light and nighttime work, which the EPA classifies as a type 2 carcinogen, interrupts the Pineal gland’s functions and lowers melatonin levels, thereby heightening cancer risk.”
Dr. Marik articulates the importance of returning to our roots, a simple, intuitive lifestyle. “Walking outdoors, absorbing sunlight, eating a limited number of meals daily, and reestablishing the circadian rhythm—these are the building blocks of health. It's just common sense.”
Vitamin D, a seemingly humble nutrient, plays a pivotal role in this scenario. “People with low vitamin D levels face an exponentially increased risk of cancer,” Dr. Marik stresses. “There’s a plethora of data supporting this. For instance, those residing in high latitude areas receive less ultraviolet B exposure, resulting in lesser Vitamin D synthesis, and consequently a higher cancer risk.”
Also, often-underestimated is the crucial factor for generating melatonin via the Pineal gland. A malfunctioning Pineal gland reduces melatonin production, which in turn, increases your risk of cancer, particularly breast cancer," explained Dr. Marik.
He refers to a groundbreaking study published in a peer-reviewed journal: “It involved three simple interventions— administering 4000 units of Vitamin D, 1 gram of Omega-3 fatty acids, and a basic home exercise regimen. Astonishingly, this combination reduced cancer risk by 50%. Consider the implications of these findings!”
While emphasizing the potent trio—Vitamin D, Omega-3 fatty acids, and exercise—Dr. Marik also considers melatonin a worthy addition, even suggesting it could potentially help “eliminate cancer from this planet.”
He cites a New England Journal of Medicine paper detailing how Vitamin D deficiency fuels cancer growth and its supplementation aids in risk reduction. Low levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D are associated with a 30-50% increased risk of colon, prostate, and breast cancer, along with higher mortality rates from these cancers.
However, the inconvenient truth lies elsewhere. “The problem is that reducing healthcare costs conflicts with the pharmaceutical narrative. The industry would rather have patients on an endless cycle of non-curative drug consumption that merely suppresses symptoms,” Dr. Marik reveals.
He concludes with a pressing message, encouraging people to take control of their health. “Individuals can actively reduce their risk of developing cancer and metabolic syndrome by following a few basic steps—supplementing Vitamin D and melatonin, engaging in regular exercise, and spending time under the sun. It doesn’t require any high-tech intervention,” he adds, hinting at a glimmer of hope.
Dr. Marik further emphasizes the importance of being more in tune with ourselves and of minimizing stress and anxiety in our lives. “We have the potential to enhance our health, well-being, longevity, and happiness.”
