I would like to take a moment to thank you all for the supportive messages I’ve received after sending the email regarding my mother’s recent accident.
I am eternally grateful for your company and the good vibes. I have tried to reply to every email I have received.
My mother is doing better, but we believe her treatment will take some time, as she will need to see a plastic surgeon to help her with her injury. However, she is feeling well and positive.
I would like to comment on one of the messages sent to me, because I think there is an important lesson to be learned.
This is what one of my readers had to say:
I am so happy for your mother.
I am following your plans and advice for the last 3 years; however, I felt obliged to give you a kind and gentle perspective to reflect upon.
Natural health systems, like the one you are advocating for, do work; however, you ought to keep a wider perspective that it is not the only way. Your comments toward medical colleagues are usually unkind and unilateral with a tunnel vision view. This is a gentle nudge to remind us all, and you as well, that the medical team saved your mother and they continue to do so regardless of what the world thinks of them.
I hope this helps.
First of all, I thank this reader for her message.
Anyone who has been following my articles for a while, as well as reading my books, knows that Natural Hygiene (the science I advocate) does not exclude medicine and neither do I, especially when it comes to needing surgery as a result of injury.
In my book, Health For Life, I make a point of differentiating between a need for medical treatment, as in the case of accidents and injuries; and treating diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.
I have nothing but praise for medical professionals for the work they do; I mean, how could anyone not be grateful? They are beyond incredible, working hard every day to save lives. I think I have complemented their efforts on every article I have written on the subject.
The medical profession, in my opinion, has been very much manipulated by the pharmaceutical industry in general, with their eternal greed and quest for profit, pushing the sale of hard drugs to treat symptoms; when the best solution, in many cases, is to eliminate the cause of the disease, by changing diet and lifestyle. This is essentially the main difference between natural health and medicine.
However, one approach does not exclude the other. Prescription drugs may also be necessary when treating certain conditions, whatever those may be. In health, as in almost everything else, we need to make intelligent decisions based on the knowledge we acquire.
My father died from complications of type 2 diabetes in 2001, long before I discovered natural health; so unfortunately, I was unable to help him. Medicine failed my father and continues to fail those who suffer from type 2 diabetes because life-saving information is constantly suppressed by the big powers of our world, namely Big Pharma and the food industry.
The main cause of type 2 diabetes is a high fat content diet. We have known this fact for decades, but this information is still largely suppressed among the masses. Why? Well… If people start eating a healthy, low-fat, raw or mostly raw, plant-based diet, they would stop getting sick. In turn, Big Pharma would no longer be able to sell drugs to treat those sicknesses and the food industry will no longer be able to sell high-fat junk food and thereby create more sickness. It’s as simple as that.
What Big Pharma and the food industry do is lobby politicians and spout lies in the name of “scientific studies” to twist the “truth” into whatever they think will earn the most profits; just as tobacco companies have done for decades by denying that tobacco causes cancer.
This is what I am fighting against. I am not against doctors, nurses, or the practice of medicine per se.
I know many people who suffer from diabetes. I don’t have diabetes because I studied natural health for many years and because of that knowledge, I know what to eat and how to prevent it. That is why I believe it is so important to learn about natural health and why I do what I do to promote it.
My core teachings and beliefs are that by eating a biologically appropriate diet and living according to natural laws, such as exercise, emotional balance, etc. we create health. These essential teachings will never, and can never, change.
