In spite of living in this chaotic, deeply diverse and extraordinarily complicated world of over 7 billion people, we have fallen into a seamless spectrum of categorized industries. What I’m trying to say is that we all tend to choose various fields of work and consequently have different resumes. Although deathly competitive, industries are still segregated beautifully. We have writers, artists, athletes, musicians, lawyers so on and so forth. Due to inferior knowledge about another industry, we quite willingly give the educated person or institution precedence to make an informed decision. So much so that we have somewhat become victims of these situations. All in good reason though. I would trust my lawyer to make the right legal decision, a chef to prepare a worthy meal and a doctor to diagnose and prescribe the suitable treatment and medication. Right?
Wrong, maybe a few years ago but surely not today. It is difficult for me to generalize but I will talk about one that has played relevance in my life lately, the medical and health care system. I speak from a very personal perspective. One that I experienced and learnt a few life lessons from and would love to share with you.
We put so much faith in our doctors and their recommendations, choices and decisions that we lose the ability to make one on our own. We have no clue about medicines and treatments, so obviously we would, but today as I study disease reversal in terms of prevention, treatment, recovery and rehabilitation I am confronted by an ugly truth. Although these systems are “beautifully segregated” they are still very much a part of a larger system, a further significant and governing body. To put simply and quite self explanatory, here are few facts of life.
- The automotive, pharmaceutical, oil and food (specifically packaged and meat) are some of the biggest and most influential industries in the world today.
- These industries play a pivotal role in our global economy.
- The government therefore works everything in its power to keep these industries alive and thriving.
Due to lack of knowledge, I can’t speak about oil and automotive, but as I get a glimpse into the food and medical industry I sit in disbelief. Equally, over here it is suffice to say that the medical system in general has been more than beneficial to us in many ways. I mean today not only do we have triple but also quadruple bypass surgeries, GREAT!!! Through genetic testing we can learn about our “supposedly inherited” cancer risks and take precautions by stripping away our identities, EVEN BETTER!!! Basically you are sure to find a prescribed medicine for almost all illnesses and their side effects.
We were lucky enough however to have had a top Oncologist who not only prescribed the best options but also was compassionate, loving and took a personal vested interest in my mother’s case (not found very easily today). At that point I didn’t even consider other alternatives, such as the power in food and exercise, simple but effective.
It is so important to remember that there are always options available along with opportunities to gain knowledge. Don’t shy away from learning about an unfamiliar field, not asking questions and not making your own informed decision. If someone told me that I would be interested in disease reversal through food and exercise or even mentioned that I would have any remote interest in the healthcare system, I would have laughed at the ridiculousness of the statement. This being purely due to the fact that I don’t have a degree in medicine or any associated degree of the same.
But today I have gained a fair bit of knowledge about this field simply through reading books, talking to various people, attending workshops, watching informative videos and talks on related topics, researching and educating myself on a daily bases. So my suggestion is do the same. Whether your natural instinct is to turn towards a doctor, nutritionist, spiritual advisor or Reiki healer, gain as much knowledge as you can and never ignore alternatives. Study what system they belong to and then make your choice. Always know you have the ability to learn as much as you can in any field to make the best decision for yourself or your loved one.
Its never too late or too early!
Especially when it comes to health, because no matter which industry we belong to or what work we do, one fact of life remains true. Nothing or no one is more important than our health!
