    What Killed Isaac Hayes?

    By Dherbs.Com

    Just one day after actor/comedian Bernie Mac died from a bout with pneumonia or complications from said disease on August 9, 2008, R&B soul legend and icon Isaac Hayes made his transition, apparently from a stroke, the next day on August 10. Hayes was 65, the federal Social Security age to begin receiving retirement benefits.

    It was reported on March 20, 2006 that Hayes suffered a stroke in January of that year but a spokeswoman for Hayes denied that Hayes suffered a stroke. However, in October of 2006 Hayes himself confirmed that he did in fact suffer a stroke.

    On August 10, 2008, Hayes was found unconscious in his home near Memphis, Tennessee. Hayes wife found him on the floor near a still-running treadmill. He was taken to a hospital in Memphis and pronounced dead at 2:08 p.m. EST; the cause of death was unknown at the time but later reported by authorities as a stroke.

    If Hayes in fact died of a stroke, like Bernie Mac before him and so many other gifted artists and entertainers, he died of a degenerative disease and thus a reversible and preventable disease by way of a simple change in diet and lifestyle. All degenerative diseases are predicated upon poor diet and lifestyle which in turn are predicated upon unhealthy thoughts and emotions and thus make for the easiest diseases to reverse or heal from because all one has to do is make changes in the areas of diet, lifestyle, and thoughts which will impact emotions and attitude.

    Ninety-percent of the things most Americans go to the hospital for are degenerative in nature and thus can be reversed or healed through diet and lifestyle changes and therefore making hospital visits, drug prescriptions and consumption, and surgery unnecessary.

    According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Dherbs.Com and Djehuty Ma’at-Ra do not accept this however. We see the leading causes of death in the U.S. as: heart disease, iatrogenics, and cancer respectively.

    Iatrogenics is a Western medical term that basically means “doctor-physician induced death.” Basically, due to prescription drugs and unnecessary surgery, doctors are killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people every year that unwisely put their faith and trust in doctors and their unnatural practices and procedures. People are unnecessarily dying due to going to the hospital and/or the pharmacy and unwisely taking inorganic compounds with a petroleum/coal tar base and subsequently fatally polluting themselves.

    Drugs are poisons and you cannot get well or heal yourself of a disease by consuming poison. Hippocrates told us to let our food be our medicine. Drugs are not food and thus cannot be medicine! They have no place in the human body – the temple of God. They cannot heal you. Why do you think people have been on their prescriptions for drugs for numerous amounts of years with no benefit and especially no healing whatsoever? Somebody’s being played. We’re dealing with legalized drug dealing with millions of drug heads and addicted drug fiends who have a government pass to purchase and consume drugs, legal dugs that kill more people in one day than all the illegal drugs do in 100 years.

    Drugs are not medicine! For religious folks, the scriptures tell you what is medicine and what shall be used for healing:

    “ … and the leaf thereof for medicine.” – Ezekiel 47:12”

    “… and the leaf shall be for the healing of the nations.’ – Revelation 22:2

    These prescription and over-the-counter drugs folks are consuming today are not derived from trees, but from liquefied rock or stone: PETROLEUM! Petroleum is the same thing gas and oil is derived from. This is what man is giving you today under your deviation from The Way (Tao), from Nature, from the Knowledge of Self.

    Psalm 104:14 clearly states that God made the herb for the service of man, not the pharmaceutical drugs. So why are so many professed God-fearing people consuming man-made drugs? Has man (doctor, physician, surgeon) become God besides God?

    We have severe ignorance (and hypocrisy) on the scene today, and surely “my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” – Hosea 4:6

    For a more in depth understanding of what iatrogenics is, visit our site and articles category and read our article “Iatrogenics and Iatrogenic Disorders”

    It is reported that over 160,000 U.S. citizens die each year from stroke. Stroke is also reported as a leading cause of serious long-term disability.

    Each year, 700,000 strokes occur in the United States, 500,000 of which are first or new strokes. According to research, strokes can occur at any age but nearly one-quarter of strokes occur in people under the age of 65.

    Stroke is another disease that occurs disproportionately in African-Americans when compared to other races and nationalities in the United States.

    Stroke rates are higher for African-Americans than for whites, even at younger ages. Undoubtedly, the soul food diet of African-Americans has a lot to due with African-Americans’ higher incidences and rates of certain diseases and subsequent deaths from these diseases, such as stroke.

    Because the diet of African-Americans collectively or generally is worse, the diseases are more and epidemic. So despite being only 13% of the total U.S. population according to statistics, African-Americans for their total U.S. population number have very high rates of degenerative diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, obesity, fibroid tumors, endometriosis, high cholesterol, asthma, glaucoma, poly cystic ovarian syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and eczema and not to mention diseases that are near exclusive to and indicative of African-Americans such as sarcoidosis (which Bernie Mac also had) and sickle cell.

    These degenerative diseases are the result of a highly acidic diet high in mucus-forming so-called foods such as meat (slaughtered animal flesh loaded with parasites and worms, growth hormones, cancer-causing sodium nitrate/nitrite, etc.), dairy products (cow pus and snot as well as less than 10% cow feces), eggs (aborted chicken fetus), refined grains (paste/glue from gluten), and refined starch (stiffening agent like ironing board starch used to stiffen clothes).

    African-Americans may not like hearing this, but soul food is KILLING them in addition to the Standard American Diet (which is killing all Americans who eat it), fast food, and junk food and they would be wise in making soul food healthy by adding mock meats (made of beans, nuts, legumes, mushrooms, and vegetables), live or living raw foods (vegetables cooked in temperatures under 118 degrees to preserve the enzymes which are the life force of living foods), alkaline grains instead of refined grains (which are mucus-forming), sea salt instead of white table salt (which causes high blood pressure because it is a poison); maple syrup and agave nectar instead of white table sugar (the #1 drug on the planet); egg replacer instead of eggs (which are sterilized and induce infertility and impotence), and water instead of milk (liquidized cow snot/pus), Fool-Aid (oops, I meant “Kool-Aid”), and soda pop (which robs the body of calcium) to the diet.

    What is a Stroke?

    In medical language, a stroke is referred to as “Cerebrovascular Accident” (CVA). In my personal research, I discovered and learned that strokes are primarily caused by lack or starvation of oxygen (medially called “ischemia”) to the brain and lack of oxygen to the brain was generally caused by arterial obstruction due to insalubrious (unhealthy) diet and lifestyle.

    Because stroke involved the buildup of deposits that caused thickening and hardening of the artery walls, stroke was in the family of arteriosclerosis.

    The greatest dietary culprit in stroke causation was meat and dairy products. These insalubrious products resulted in excess production of mucus, plaque, and other hardened substances that obstruct arterial blood flow throughout the body in general, the brain in particular and resulting in ischemia.

    Lack of blood flow and/or starvation of blood will undoubtedly lead to lack of oxygen to the brain. The toxins and obstructions in the blood take up available room for oxygen and vital life essence (chi). When oxygen is cut off at the blood-brain barrier, stroke is the result.

    Because oxygen is the primary fuel for the brain, lack of it to the brain will seriously impair the brain (command center) resulting in neurological damage which is where the paralysis and speech defects associated with stroke come into effect.

    Pharmaceutical grade birth control pills also cause stroke due to the fact that they cause the formation of blood clots in a female’s body and blood clots just like mucus, plaque, and other accumulated debris can cut off oxygen to the brain.

    Metaphysically, strokes denote a feeling of (1) being cut off from your source, (2) constantly feeling trapped in between walls or barriers (a rock and a hard place), (3) feeling like you are not able to persevere through life’s (actually ‘society’s') challenges, (4) feeling stagnant in life and unable to move forward, (5) feeling like giving up in regards to life, (6) Resistance, and (7) rejection of life.

    The above metaphysical causations for stroke were very present in Isaac Hayes life considering his parents died very early in his life causing him to live with and be raised by his grandparents (and thus a feeling of being cut off from his source: parents), growing up in poverty (a feeling of being cut off from universal Source of abundance/wealth), going into debt and subsequently filing for bankruptcy due to Stax Records’ (the label he was signed under) financial woes, losing all of his income in a deal with Union Planters Bank to pay off his debts with the bank incurred while with the Stax record label, and eventually losing his home and much of his personal property and all the rights to all future royalties earned from the music he’d written, performed, and produced. All of this had to negatively impact Hayes and was recorded in his tissues and cellular memory. In addition to unhealthy diet and lifestyle, thoughts and emotions (negative ones) also adversely affect our health and wellbeing.

    All disease begins on the emotional level and effectuated by lifestyle or what happens in one’s life. In addition, the human body speaks through metaphor. Stroke conveys the message of a feeling of being “cut off” and/or “losing” as well as “having one’s flow stymied or cut off.” It should be clear to see the connections of the foregoing feelings to the disease called stroke, which results when oxygen is “cut off” to the brain. Like is said in the field of metaphysics: “As above, so below” and “as within, so without!”
