The Body/Mind/Soul Can Heal Itself

The Body/Mind/Soul Can Heal Itself

The mind/body/soul connection can allow you to heal in ways that prescription medications never could.

My body taught me how to get healthy. It’s a celebratory wonder. No one else knew how to pull me out of the quagmire.

This wondrously animated bag of bones has only ever wanted my attention. The body knows about healing and survival and evolution and when acknowledged that leads to freedom.

Yes, the human beings capacities are awe inspiring.  And yet what we do to ourselves here in the west is tragic…we shut down these incredibly intelligent creatures.

I was sick since I was a child. Getting healthy is the most exciting thing I’ve ever done. I had no idea what was available with health. I simply hadn’t experienced it to know.

Conventional medicine made sure I’d be sick from day one. It began with excessive and unnecessary long-term antibiotic treatments which left me vulnerable to the psych med iatrogenic injury later.

I now sometimes have trouble containing my glee as my body and mind starts feeling and understanding what health and well-being really is.

Most significantly I didn’t know I was sick for most of my life. I thought I was healthy. Many people in the developed world today are like this and have no idea that they are not well.

We live in a world where substandard health is considered normal and even healthy and therefore most people simply don’t realize it.

I was on a combination of six different psychiatric drugs. That included anti-depressants, mood-stabilizer, anti-psychotics, anxiolytics and a stimulant. If you imagine that cocktail must have made me sick. You’re right.

By the time I realized what was happening I was severely ill. And by the time I got off the drugs I was even sicker.  It’s referred to as psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome. The name makes it sound like something that might last days or weeks but it actually left me bedridden and disabled for many years. These drugs change the entire nervous system so withdrawal sometimes means going through a period of far worse hell before coming out the other side.  It’s also largely denied by the medical establishment.

What possesses a doctor to prescribe such a cocktail? They simply do not know better.  My doctor truly cared about me. He almost killed me too.

I have since learned how to avoid such treatment and help others to understand that their bodies/mind/spirits can help them get well in holistic and wholesome ways too. No one has to get sick like I did.

So, how did it all begin? While in college I had an experience that one might consider a kundalini awakening. No one knew how to work with spiritual emergence in my circle of family and friends so I became subject to psychiatry, which also does not recognize such forms of awakening. Psychiatry knows how to shut down these processes with medications. The unfortunate part is that often means there can be no moving through and healing the content if one never comes off of them.

The Breakaway Guide To Big Medica – Doctors, Data & Disease

BigPharma

“Probably as much as 75% of the medicine of sickness is unnecessary and its cost can be avoided.”
–  Ghislaine Lanctot

As a preamble to the following post, it must be said that this is definitely not directed at the hard working honest individuals within the medical industry. Countless nurses and doctors do good work, and some are my friends. There are however, antibiotic/vaccine pushing doctors and nurses that know better but whose moral compass is broken while simultaneously there also are profit-pushing CEOs of corporations, hospitals, and vaccine manufacturers that put profits before people, and that enables a system of disease to operate for maximum rewards. In this case, profits for disease. And the more profits there are, the more diseases increases, and that is exactly the kind of Orwellian scenario that is developing with nigh no end in sight.

Many in the populace are quick to extol the virtues of Medical System, and although there are a lot of indelible achievements [lives extended, lives saved, etc.] accomplished more often than not, such is not always the case.

Latent deep within Big Medica, the finer details reveal certain issues that have not been reported much [if at all] by the mainstream media. As an example, how many people realize that prescriptions drugs are in fact 16,400% deadlier than terrorists?[1] An immediate reaction to such a statement by many would be something along the lines of ‘That’s preposterous!’, ‘Impossible!’. However, they truth would remain regardless what some wish to believe. Unfortunately, that is only the beginning.

Moreover, with prescription drugs being doled out at the tune of 4 Billion per annum , it’s no wonder that medications are injuring 1.5 Million people a year.[2][3] Not only are there 400,000 injuries that can be prevented each year at hospitals, but there are also 800,000 injuries that occur in long-term care facilities. Of all those, about 530,000 injuries occur to those that chose to use outpatient clinics and had Medicare.[4]

Interestingly enough, the fact that these mistakes result in an additional $3.5 Billion in extra medical costs does not pose much of an incentive for those interested in expanding the Medical System’s rising profits.[5][6] Amidst a medical establishment that is the most expensive in the world, it is extremely disturbing as this study by the Commonwealth Fund illustrates:

The U.S. fails to achieve better health outcomes than other countries, and as shown in the earlier editions, the U.S. is last or near last on dimensions of access, efficiency, and equity.”[7]

Knowing that, it is surely not shocking to see that our medical system really isn’t any better than a that of a third world country.[8]

Establishing those facts, perhaps it is time that people realize how flawed this ‘great’ [profits first, people second] system of medical care is in this country. Worst part is that among the current generation of women, their rate of death is actually in fact higher than that of their mothers.[9] That is one major reason why the US ranks 26th overall in the world in respect to life expectancy.[10]

With all this being known, what is a person to do? Take charge of your health for starters!

Do not live an inactive life, watching an average of 34 hours of TV per week, which limits your mobility since people just sit for hours on end and that ultimately decreases your lifespan.[11][12]

It is much better to be proactive, then reactive in life – your health is no exception. Even though many people know they should ‘eat healthy & exercise’, they seem not to care until something life-altering issue happens to them.

What are you going to do? Become a statistic? Or take control of your health?

The choice is yours, as always.
