That's precisely the kind of ill-informed replies we're trying to avoid. Please don't add to the problem.
Interesting way of describing it.
Guess that means I need to start pulling out the links to pro-natural health sources that delve into the biochemistry of food.
And don't start with plants are this and plants are that, at least not to me. Your condescension is unwarranted and unwelcome.
Plants are what they are. I can kill you with most of the plants you have around your home, and half of the ones growing in your garden. That
doesn't even begin to approach the plants in your yard, or the often highly-toxic varieties that we cultivate because they look pretty.
Understanding the body and the nature of illness is key to healing. Our "modern" approach to healing is wrong because we don't look at how
the body actually works as a whole.
Actually, we do.
The issue is that our body consists of some very complex and comprehensive chemical compounds. To further compound this issue, there are more
bacteria cells in our bodies than there are of our own - with a host of different species and sub-species cycling through our bodies at any given
This is why we do things called "testing."
We only look at "hey, there's a sick spot. Lop it off. Dose it with this wave/chemical." Bad thinking.
No, it's practical thinking. If you have a toe chock full of gangrene... how would you propose "healing" your body?
Worse is that we aren't better for it. The whole person has to heal or illness will strike elsewhere, or recur in the same spot.
You're touching on a tangent, here.
As I've said before - someone who suffers from a serious medical issue needs to consider lifestyle changes. Someone who suffers a heart attack
should consider changing their eating habits. Someone who suffers an aneurism should evaluate their exposure to stress and their mechanisms for
dealing with it.
Even someone who suffers chronic minor issues should consider lifestyle changes. Chemicals in new carpeting or furniture can induce headaches. Too
much sleep can induce depression (as well as be a symptom of depression - which means it's a gaining feedback loop, and something that should be
addressed promptly). The list goes on.
It's the fundamental energy that is ill. The body is simply the manifestation. Until the person themselves are responsible (and not in some
legislated manner, k?) for their own health and wellbeing, we will not make any progress toward healing.
This is rich. If only my mother had been more responsible for her own health and well-being. If only she cooked rounded meals for the family,
exercised, spent time in the out-doors.... oh... wait... she did that.
What caused her cancer was the same that caused my grandmother's cancer. They moved into that house about the time my mother was born, and the water
was later found to have been contaminated while a company had been dumping wastes from cleaning out engines into the local water supply (and polluting
the water table). A swath of rare inflammatory cancers originated from that area, enough to prompt a class-action lawsuit. Both my mother and
grandmother came down with cancer within months of each other.
Until we understand our bodies and feel what they are trying to tell us, we will continue to be ill. Illness is a message that you're doing
something wrong. Our lifestyles are lies. Our society is false. Our food is a joke. We must do better. We have to go back to the earth for our health.
There is no choice.
Right. Let me know how that works for you. When you actually have something serious.
Any sane doctor will tell you that our knowledge of medicine is incomplete. That is why it is called a practice - or even an artistic science.
Sure, it would be nice if we could DBZ our health issues away. Just go Super-Lymphocyte 2 and solve the problem... or eat a sensu-bean to resolve the
gaping hole in our chest.
I'm among the first to point out that reality is something of a subjective concept... but you're pushing beyond the boundaries of what that implies.
