Bombay Times Column – FAQ’s Session 5

My husband is 163.5 cms, 40-years-old and weighs 97 kgs. He has been facing acute pain in both his heels recently and finds walking very difficult. What could be the cause of the pain? 

Your husband is overweight and needs to start lowering that at the earliest. With regards to the pain, it could be standing in a bad posture that’s putting extra pressure on the heels. However it could also be a nerve problem, so I suggest you have it looked at by a professional.

 

I am 22 year-old-man, 6’2” and weigh 108 kgs. I have tried several diets but none seem to work. I am also lactose intolerant. Could you suggest a diet that I can follow long-term? Since I am a Keralite, many of the dishes made at home are coconut-based. Where am I going wrong?

I would need a lot more information to suggest a diet however you are not grossly overweight so I suggest you follow the basic principles of eating healthy (lots of raw fruits and vegetables), exercising and staying hydrated. Also ensure that you are not eating a lot of white rice. As for being lactose intolerant; the most effective treatment is to avoid foods and medications that contain lactose, primarily milk and milk products.

I am a 40-year-old man weighing 57 kgs. I’ve been trying to gain weight but have reached a plateau. Can you recommend a diet that will help me gain weight the healthy way? 

The information provided is insufficient as I need to not only know your height but I also need to know your current diet to understand why you have reached a plateau. Doing yoga helps you achieve your ideal optimum weight, so I suggest you start  Hatha yoga and see if that helps.

I’d like to know if slaked lime can be used as a calcium supplement. How must it be consumed? Can be added while cooking or had raw? What is the quantity needed for daily supply of calcium? Can slaked lime help preventing/ curing osteoporosis? 

I do not recommend slated lime as a calcium supplement. I suggest you get your calcium from natural vegetables, nuts, sesame seeds etc., I suggest you research the internet for natural food sources of calcium as there are too many to put down here. I also suggest you give your body morning sunlight as it is vital for building bones, apart from that I suggest you go yoga and keep your body alkaline by eating healthy as a lifestyle as that is the best way to supply calcium to your body daily.

Bombay Times Column – FAQ’s session 1

 What are the benefits of breastfeeding over giving my baby bottled  milk?                         

Just as no animals child drinks another animals milk, is nature’s way of telling you as a mother to feed your baby. Mother’s milk has all the correct nutrition required for a human baby to grow healthily and most importantly mother’s milk alone helps build the child’s immunity which is what will protect your child from illness in the long run. Bottled milk or formula milk is very acidic for children. Ideally you should breast feed your baby for a year.

Is sugar in fruits safe for diabetics?

Absolutely, a diabetic should not be afraid to eat fresh fruits and vegetables which contain sugar and starch. Fresh fruits contain fructose, which does not need insulin for its metabolism, making it safe. People with diabetes however should eat fruits with a low glycemic index, i.e. below 55. This is to help prevent blood sugar spikes that make diabetes worse. Fructose also has a much lower glycemic index of 19 compared to glucose or sucrose (table sugar) which has GI values of 100 and 60 respectively. This means high fructose fruits will not spike blood sugar levels to the same extent as high glucose fruits. High fructose fruits like apples, pears, grapefruit and guavas, are beneficial for diabetics. It should be noted that beverages sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are not a substitute for fruits high in fructose. These heavily processed drinks tend to have an extremely high fructose content, far in excess of that found in fresh fruits and are devoid of any nutritional benefits. Chronic consumption of HFCS has been linked to increased rates of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.

I have tried several diets to lose weight, but I keep putting it back on, what in your opinion is the best diet to lose weight permanently?  

A diet is often thought of as a regimented eating plan to lose weight, however the truth is that no weight loss diets ever work permanently. The only way to lose weight permanently is to change your lifestyle and aim to be healthy vs. trying to be slim. If you are overweight you are most likely suffering from acidosis which does not allow you to lose weight. When the body is in a state of acidosis, the body needs all the fat and water it can retain to dilute your fat soluble and water soluble toxins. It is for your own safety that your body does this as it chooses survival over vanity. The key to losing weight is to focus on becoming healthy on the inside which will eventually lead to weight loss. Weight loss is a guaranteed side effect of being healthy.

I am asthmatic and have heard that wet haldi boiled in milk is beneficial. However, it is very harsh on the stomach. Is there something that can be added to the milk to balance the heat?

I am personally not a big fan of milk as it is acidic to the body. Turmeric may or may not cure your asthma, but is great in general to eat anyways as it will only do you good. A good way to consume haldi is with either a little bit of honey or ghee. I recommend you visit a hypnotherapist as asthma is most often related directly to the mind, and is most effective if treated through the mind. If you have been suffering from a long time, it is possible that the cause lies in your past; hypnotherapy allows you to locate the cause and resolve it, allowing you to be asthma free permanently.

The Truth: About Alternative Medicine

Different therapies for different people

The truth is that all disease in the body, whether it is obesity or cancer, PCOD or tumours, diabetes or high blood pressure, depression or insomnia is ALL rooted in the mind. Over time as the mind is not dealt with, it starts to manifest as disease in the body purely to get your attention.

If you only work with the body and ignore the mind, you will in effect only be suppressing symptoms. If you work only with the mind, you can cure yourself in time but it requires a lot of dedication and time. The best balance is found when both are dealt with together and that’s where alternative medicine comes in.

Alternative medicine tackles both the mind and the body if used correctly.

A few Alternative therapies are: Homeopathy, Bach Flower remedies, Hypnotherapy, Craniosacral therapy, Rieki, Theta Healing, Herbal medicine, Hatha Yoga, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Nutrition, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Life Force Healing and the list goes on.

In a fast paced world, where everyone wants short cuts, western medicine works wonders. But short cuts only make your journey shorter, and as all wise ones say, life is a journey, enjoy the ride, and don’t be in a rush to get to the destination as it is the journey that matters. Your body is merely a vehicle chosen by your soul to experience life on earth. The quality of your vehicle will determine the quality of your journey.

Western medicine is not going to work in the long run purely because you cannot separate your mind and body,  or your soul and your body, or your spirit and your body, at least till you are alive. Your body is created for your soul and not the other way around. If you keep ignoring your mind/soul and only dealing with the body, sooner or later you will be ringing my doorbell as they all do.

Most of my cases comprise of people who have tried for years to suppress one disease after another by popping pills and over the years more and more complications have arisen finally making them realize “It’s not working.”

Let me explain this with an actual case study:

I once had this woman who was in her late 30’s and she had recurring urinary tract infections, PCOD and recurring vaginal yeast infections. She had tried enough medication and had drunk all the cranberry juice she could get her hands on. She had even modified her diet using basic logic of less spice, less fried etc. Unfortunately over years the medication had caused acidity, face breakouts, IBS, constipation and lots of discomfort and pain most of the time, she eventually started taking sleeping pills as she couldn’t get sleep with the pain. Her body had also stopped reacting to pain killers, and last but not the least she had started experiencing mood swings, all in all she had been battling this since she was 17 and had spent 15 odd years living with the fear of pain and getting sick.

When she came to meet me, she wanted to understand nutrition and how she could eat more correctly to resolve this problem. She had done her research and had understood that specific foods can heal specific problems.

What she hadn’t researched, was her own life. In Alternative Medicine that’s the first thing that’s done. It is important to understand broadly, what experiences the patient has had that could be life altering for the future.  As I started my research on her life, I learnt that she had been sexually abused for 3 years by her uncle. She was 11 then and scared and obviously it hurt. She hadn’t told anybody about it, as she was told by her uncle that no one would believe her. Being at that tender age, a child is incapable of handling such situations. Her abuse only ended due to his sudden death.  And as he existed no more, she buried it deep down feeling shameful and eventually thought she had moved on.

Having noted this I asked her about her sex life in her current relationship and sure enough she was single at that time. As I dig deeper into her past few boyfriends, the deep rooted fears of her sexual abuse as a child start to emerge as a pattern in her life today, she couldn’t hold a relationship mostly due to sex. She found sex very uncomfortable and it often started off the infection. it was the infections that made her believe she was unable to enjoy sex, thereby avoiding it which eventually would chase the men away, leaving her single and frustrated.

The case had many more facets that revealed her strengths and weaknesses; however this particular trauma of sexual abuse had manifested into vaginal issues and was affecting her today. Her mind had associated sex as painful and non pleasurable. But being in her 20’s where consciously consensual sex is normal and healthy for girls that age, her subconscious mind associated it to painful and traumatic and not pleasurable, and that’s why it hurts her when in fact it is supposed to be pleasurable. Deep down buried was a fear of sex, and the infections were her body retaliating to trauma that she had not released.

It was clear that she needed to release this fear and release the anger that had built up over the years for not being able to share it without being judged or trusted, it was important to release all thoughts of shame as it is not shameful at all. While working with the mind either through hypnotherapy or theta, the body is simultaneously addressed and healed through natural foods step by step with a change in lifestyle v/s crash diets.

And that’s what alternative medicine is all about. It’s about using techniques that deal with resolving traumatic experiences that you are carrying for years. It is a form of healing that acknowledges your fears and traumas for real.

Western Medicine deals with the body, Nutrition also deals with the body. However till the mind is not addressed, you can pop as many pills as you like or eat all the fruits and vegetables in the world. In the long run, it is not going to work!

Western medicine definitely has its place in the spectrum of miracle recoveries, if we take it for what it is — a stop on the path to wellness and wholeness. I wholeheartedly am grateful for the miracles that allopathic medicine has provided. When viewed as a component of the process of overall health, I think that it serves an important purpose. It’s just a matter of putting it all in the larger perspective and plan, and not abusing the function it serves, or using it for manipulative purposes or as a lifestyle.

The Truth: About Germs

It all started in the mid 18th century.

It was that One crucial debate on “The Germ Theory” between 2 microbiologists Louise Pasteur and Antoine Bechamp that changed the world forever.

Pasteur and Bechamp strongly disagreed in their bacteriological theories and it was this argument that changed the course of Medicine.

Pasteur’s theory was accepted and Bechamp’s theory was rejected. Modern Medicine and True Health parted ways because of this.

Pasteur’s discovery — that most infectious diseases are caused by germs, also known as the “germ theory of disease,” is one of the most important in medical history. His work became the foundation for the science of microbiology, and a cornerstone of modern medicine. Pasteur’s Germ Theory promoted a theory of disease that described non-changeable microbes as the primary cause of disease. This is the theory of monomorphism. This theory says that a microorganism is static and unchangeable. It is what it is. Disease is caused by microbes or bacteria that invade the body from the outside.

Bechamp held the view that microorganisms can go through different stages of development and they can evolve into various growth forms within their life cycle. This is the theory of pleomorphism. He observed microbe like particles in the blood which he called microzymas. These microbes would change shape as individuals became diseased, and for Bechamp, this was the cause of disease; hence disease comes from inside the body.

Bechamp’s research proved, what the root cause of disease was, and how it could be reversed or avoided altogether using safe, natural methods. This was long before the synthetic drugs, chemotherapy, radiation, surgical removal of body parts and vaccines with which we are all so familiar today became the mainstays of mainstream medical treatment. Bechamp’s work showed that the inner condition and health of the cells (sometimes described as the “terrain” in works of the time) determined whether disease would manifest or spread in the body. He proved through rigorous scientific method and repeated experiments over many years that disease was not due to germs attacking the body from the outside, as Louis Pasteur later convinced the world. What you eat, breathe, drink, and bathe in are the primary factors that determine your body’s inner condition. ‘Germs’ arise as a result of a diseased condition. They are a symptom, not the cause.

Western medical science went with Pasteur’s theory and Unfortunately modern medicine or allopathy as we know it, is based on the Pasteur’s germ theory. Since the 1850s, they have been developing new drugs to attack and kill the disease invaders(germs) and the result has been epidemics of cancer, sicknesses and diseases — and a very rich and powerful pharmaceutical industry.

When Pasteur was on his deathbed, he finally acknowledged Bechamp’s work and said, “Bechamp was correct: the microbe is nothing: the terrain is everything.” It was a 180 degree turnaround. With his death imminently at hand, he as much as admitted that his germ theory had flaws. But his admission fell on deaf ears. It was far too late. It could not reverse the inertia of ideas that had already been accepted by mainstream science at that time. Allopathic (drug based) medicine was firmly entrenched on the road that was paved by Pasteur.

Pasteur’s germ theory has actually made us place the responsibility of our health into the hands of poor germs and virus who really mean us no harm.

Germs are everywhere. All living things on Earth are interdependent on other living things, the entire scenario being in a rather fine balance. All forms of life are capable, in varying degrees, of adapting to environmental changes, and germs and viruses have been doing that from time immemorial. They are part of the scenario of life, they have a role to fill and a purpose to serve as part of Nature’s “Grand Design”.

The truth is that germs (bacteria) are everywhere and they are attracted to and proliferate in dis-eased tissues.  Bacteria decompose dead matter.  That is their job. For instance, when a tree dies, bacteria come in and eat the tree and it eventually becomes soil.   Bacteria do not eat a live, healthy tree.  The same thing is true in people — bacteria are attracted to dead matter. Therefore, if you have dead matter in your body, bacteria will come in and get to work decomposing the dead tissue so that it may eventually become soil.

The world has been teeming with bacteria (germs), as micro-organisms form the basis of all other forms of life. They manufacture soil out of rock, destroy unhealthy tissues of plants, man and animals, break down dead tissues to be used again, and actually form an essential part of the body and body functions. The behavior of the various forms of bacteria in the body is dependent on the environment within the body (which should be healthy but very often in humans is not), and it is only when the environment within becomes deteriorated, that many normal bacteria change from a benign form to a pathological form, again as a natural consequence. In Nature it is the survival of the species that counts, and individuals are expendable for the survival of the majority. The weak or sickly in the wild are not tolerated to handicap the group, and one way or another are soon eliminated by predators appointed for the purpose. C’est la vie. So when a person allows a pathological condition of body chemistry to develop within them they should realize that what follows is not a perversity of fate or an unlucky encounter with germs of a criminal nature, but merely another step in a natural sequence of events.

Our medical scientists have succeeded in giving the word “germ” a significance and dread power, ludicrously all out of proportion to the part these organisms actually play in the life processes of the individual human being.

One would imagine, from the way the medical professions speak, that one tiny germ or bacillus (countless thousands of which would scarcely cover the head of a pin) has only to enter the body of a “healthy” individual for that individual to be stricken with some foul disease or other. Perhaps typhoid! Perhaps tuberculosis! And modern man goes around terrified out of his life because of the existence of these tiny creatures which he believes are always threatening him, and which only the most powerful microscope can reveal to his shuddering gaze.

It is time people realise what germs really are, and the role they really do play, if any, in the setting up and development of disease.

We completely ignore the part played by the individual himself in the setting up of disease within his own body, and throw all the emphasis on purely erroneous factors, such as germs.

It is this conditioning that we need to change in our belief systems, as it does not allow us to take our health to the next level.

NO ONE can do harm to your body, but YOU.

Bechamp’s theory placed all of the responsibility of disease prevention on the individual and his lifestyle and if you seriously think about it, it will blow your mind open to a whole new way of living.

The Truth: About Malaria

If  you think getting Malaria is no fault of yours, and it’s the damn anopheles mosquito’s that causes it….. You are ONLY half right, as  a mosquito only carries the parasites that cause Malaria,  and the parasites can only cause havoc if you let it.

Everything, from the planet to the parasite is created for a purpose, and causing you harm is on no ones list. There are many “parasites” in your body, most of these are symbiotic relationships, meaning that you need them as much as they need you.

In fact, if you were laying on a table and could make all your human cells go away, a perfect 3-D image of your shape would remain in place as there are more foreign cells in your body than human ones.

As you might know by now, I am not a great friend of killings things in the body, including parasites, fungi and bacteria, to do so would leave billions of corpses of organisms behind that would cause more problems than if they were kept alive to do what they are created for – Decomposing waste products and weak or dead cells.

If they are creating havoc in your body, please understand – They are there by Invitation Only!!

For example: The mosquito needs a stagnant pool of water for its life cycle, it does not invade a body of water and make it stagnant.  It finds a body of water that already provides the kind of environment that it can thrive in.

It is the same with all infections in the body, the environment was created first, and so if there is stagnant morbid matter in your body, then the living creatures that need that type of environment will naturally seek it out and thrive in it.

The real cause of malaria, as in case of any other infectious diseases, is wrong eating habits and a faulty lifestyle, which weakens your immunity resulting in the system being clogged with toxin, accumulated systemic refuse and morbid (dead) matter that is just sitting in your body inviting the parasites to come feast.

It is on this soil of toxicity and morbid matter that the malaria parasite breeds.

The liberal use of denatured foods today such as white sugar, white rice, white flour and products made from them, as well as tinned foods, strong tea, coke, Pepsi, tea, coffee and alcoholic beverages, lower the vitality of the system and paves the way for the development of malaria which is caused by a tiny parasite called plasmodium. The parasites grow in the liver of a person for a few days and then enter the bloodstream where they invade the red blood cells. The female anopheles mosquito draws a small quantity of blood containing the parasites, when she bites a person who has malaria. These parasites then pass through several stages of development within the mosquito’s body and finally find their way to its salivary glands. There they lie in wait for an opportunity to enter the bloodstream of the next person. However upon entering the blood stream, if your immune system is firing on all cylinders, the parasites will not stand a chance of survival, let alone multiplying.

As you can see, it is crucial to keep your immune system strong. With the way the planet is headed, many more H1N1 swine flu, dengue fever and malaria parasites are going to be floating around, and you need to be protected from the inside out, not outside in.

Please read my article on The Truth: About Fever to understand a fevers purpose. A High Fever is the most common procedure carried out by the body for of all types of Malaria and this is done to kill the parasites and cure you naturally. Malaria DOES NOT necessarily require antibiotic treatment. Your body is the most advanced pharmacy in the world, it is important you stimulate it to do the work it is designed to do and heal you naturally, rather than callously supplement it.

Last but not the least use Citronella, as it repels insects such as mosquitoes, black flies, fleas and ticks therefore, preventing its bites. Citronella oil/incense stick is a natural non-toxic alternative to chemical poisonous insect repellents like Good Night and Mortien which contains DEET (N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide). They may prevent malaria but cause other adverse effects like insomnia, muscle cramps, mood disturbances and rashes.

The Truth: About Common Cold

If you catch a cold every time you meet someone with a cold, does NOT make a cold contagious.

Contrary to what most people believe, the truth is that a Cold is NOT contagious. In laboratory experiments, mucus was passed from the nose of an “infected” individual to the nose of healthy ones, and it was found that they could not intentionally transmit the cold.

The truth is a Common Cold is caused mainly by exposure to two types of viruses, Rhinoviruses and Coronaviruses. These viruses are present in the surroundings everywhere, all the time. If the virus is present everywhere, all the time, how come everybody does not have a cold? How come the virus chooses to attack only you or a few?

The real cause of a Cold is the toxic condition of the body brought about by wrong eating habits such as excessive intake of dairy, starch, carbohydrates, junk food, acid-forming foods, lack of sleep, fatigue and allergic disorders of the nose and throat which weaken the immune system, the duration of the cold will depend on the amount of poisons accumulated in the body and the rapidity with which they are expelled.

A cold is nature’s simplest way of expelling toxic waste from the human system.

Most people are also unaware that there is still NO Allopathic cure for  a common cold, because there are more than 200 subtypes of the virus, and it is difficult to tell one type from the other and develop a medicine for each one.

Over-the-counter cold and cough medications sold to adults and children will only kill the symptoms but not the virus. Decongestants and pain relievers offer some symptom relief, but they won’t prevent a cold or shorten its duration, and most have side effects if used for more than a few days.

Prevention is the ONLY way to avoid a common cold. Once attacked, there’s nothing much you can do about it, except rest and wait for it to go. A Cold can be altogether prevented by proper rest, a vitamin-rich diet and Yoga.

Although home remedies like Ginger honey lemon, chicken soup, tomato tea and a boost of Vitamin C may help you recover a little faster,  in the long run if you want to keep these virus at bay,

prevention is your only cure!!

The Truth: About Colon Cleansing

Colon cleansing is just another “quick-fix”, and unfortunately it’s under the banner of “natural cures” which makes it more appealing to people. It is in NO way natural and good for health.

If selling colon cleansing to cleanse the colon is not enough, today it is also marketed as a weight loss tool.

A colon cleanse claims to cause a “mass of gunk” to come out of you, but the gunk only comes out of the people who take the product, because the gunk is created by the product!

“Colon Cleansing Kits” claim to “remove old accumulated waste” called “mucoid plaque” that is passed from the human body in the form of long, rubbery bowel movements. The rubber like substance that is produced is NOT what was inside of you, but is a direct result of the substance that you took in the colon cleanse product , this “mucoid plaque” is simply the result of ingested powdered psyllium and Bentonite clay, bonding with the natural mucous lining of the intestinal walls. Most of the colon cleanse products today contain Psyillium (metucil) and Methyl cellulose, both are considered to be bulk-producing agents.

What exactly is a bulk producing agent?

Bulk-producing agents cause the stool to be bulkier and to retain more water, as well as forming an emollient gel. These are the two ingredients that make your stools look sludgy and rubbery.

There is a constant danger with bulk producing agents that when they do not have enough water, they can actually worsen constipation and be the cause of  blockage.

As for weight loss “Cleansing” is often used as an intro to a diet program. Claims can include detoxification, internal cleansing and increased weight loss. The truth is that what is generally achieved is a large drop in body weight, much of it is water weight, glycogen or lean tissue, and if that does anything positive, it’s the psychological boost the dieter gets when they see a 2 to 5 kg drop on the scale in the first week or even a few days. This kind of psychological boost could be considered a potential benefit, because some people give up easily with slow progress and are highly motivated with a fast start. But anyone who really understands body composition (lean body mass versus fat mass versus body water) and who has a long-term perspective will not be all that excited about fast weight loss.

The fact is, our bodies are very well designed, whether by an omnipotent Creator or by millennia of evolution, and the colon does it’s job pretty efficiently on its own.

The best way to keep your colon clean is to follow a regular balanced diet with enough of fiber in it. The fiber in your food acts as roughage and helps you in having regular bowel movements. An adult would require 25-30 grams of fiber per day.

Rather than pursue “colon cleansing” schemes, I’d recommend you call it maintaining “healthy digestive processes.”

How is your regular daily fiber intake? Are you getting 25-35 grams of fiber a day, every day, consistently? If not, then why look for “magic in a bottle”, why not just eat better?

The Truth: About Disease

With most people today, fear of disease is greater than the fear of God and understandably so. I was once a part of “most people”.

The fear of disease comes from the way it is used by health care professionals. The fear of disease comes because we are told that a disease can be fatal. The fear of disease comes when we are made to believe we have no control over it. It’s the feeling of being helpless that creates the fear.

I am not going to focus on the role F&B and Pharmaceutical Industries  play in building this fear, even though it’s a BIG part. I will save that for another article as it’s a topic on its own.

I would rather first tell you what disease really is.

DISEASE is nothing more than DIS-EASE

The very word denoting illness contains its own best definition: dis-ease.

Dis-ease is the earliest stage of illness NOT the last.

Dis-ease is another word for discomfort.

Dis-ease may be defined as a state which is not conducive to inner harmony.

Dis-ease is an energetic imbalance, a shift in your natural vitality that is not beneficial.

It is worth seeing how the Thesaurus defines disease and dis-ease.

Dis-ease is a way your body communicates with you. It is important to perceive words like dis-ease correctly, as these are the foundations to building a healthier body. The truth is, that there is only one disease in today’s world, with many different stages, Modern medicine have given these stages many different names. The final stages of dis-ease are cancer, heart attack, strokes and things like that, but nobody wakes up one morning and suffers from these things without experiencing the beginning stages of disease. What happens is that people don’t identify the beginning stages of disease or ignore it and it keeps coming back worse and worse. If you just listen to your body and take correct actions when you feel slight dis-ease, it will never end up being what you believe is disease.

The Truth: About Allopathy

What is a system of diagnosis and treatment worth, that starts with “symptoms” that are, in truth, nothing but “organized effects” !!

When a body is out of balance, doctors attempt to put it back into balance, first through drugs, then through surgery. The general effect is to remove the symptoms, not to deal with the ultimate cause of the ailment.

For example, when a surgeon removes a fibroid tumor, or tonsil, without a thought, or the slightest knowledge that these enlargements are but organized effects – neoplasms (new tissue growths) – that cannot possibly come into existence without cause, which cause is not touched by the operation – and, then, pronounces his – patient well (cured). He has only removed the symptom not the cause.

To remove a gall stone and pronounce the patient cured is tantamount to saying that the stone was its own cause. All of these procedures leave the cause untouched – to result in the building of more pathology?

Today, when a person becomes ill – he takes a pill, gets an injection, or has an organ removed. No attention is given to cause. His life is not changed, his habits are not corrected, and in a short time he is sick again. Neither the physician nor the patient is able to trace a connection between the two dis-eases. So-called health is again restored and the incident passes from memory.
Again, within a short time, another illness (which is as much of a surprise as were the prior two illnesses) develops and still no thought is devoted to its connection with the two preceding illnesses. So long as the real nature of disease and real source of cause are not understood, this will continue to be true.

Continuous chemical intervention into a body’s natural processes has led to a host of complications and ailments. Western medicine looks to suppress symptoms and therefore works against the balancing forces of nature. That diarrhea, sneeze or rise in blood pressure is the body’s natural mechanism to cleanse or support itself but we continue to blindly suppress the symptoms whilst ignoring true root causes. Furthermore our bodies are the most advanced pharmacies in the world but we callously supplement them rather than stimulate them to do the work they were designed to do.
You need to eliminate root causes by treating the entire physical, etheric, emotional and mental being. You are not just a collection of cellular processes but rather a thinking, feeling, living spiritual being and its time medical sciences recognize and incorporate this in to their modalities.

Allopathic medicine definitely has its place in the spectrum of miracle recoveries, if we take it for what it is — a stop on the path to wellness and wholeness. I wholeheartedly am grateful for the miracles that allopathic medicine has provided. When viewed as a component of the process of overall health, i think that it serves an important purpose. it’s just a matter of putting it all in the larger perspective and plan, and not abusing the function it serves, or using it for manipulative purposes.

The Truth: About Your Body

Your body is not only the temple for your soul, but also the most sophisticated living creation, the most advanced pharmacy, the most accurately functioning mechanism.

If the above sounds true, then what logically follows is that the body should also be capable of curing itself.

IT IS !!!

Continuos pharmaceutical chemical intervention disrupts the biochemistry of the body. We need to stop running to Allopathic Doctors at the drop of a hat, we need to stop empowering them to cure us, we need to stop passing the buck.

We continue to lead unhealthy lives expecting the doctor to correct it with pharmaceutical drugs !!!

Allopathy definitely has its advantages for situations that are extreme, and its is best used as a stepping stone vs a lifestyle. In the long rung if you dont take responsibility and expect western medicine to heal you, think again !!

We need to develop faith in our ability to self heal. We all need to try alternative medicine when the body is out of balance. There are a wide array of alternative therapies namely: acupuncture, acupressure, Naturotherapy, hypnotherapy, Reiki, Homeopathy, and many more that are very effective.
