My point of view is not something to believe or disbelieve. It is a way to take control back, a way to be in control when the conventional approach has no more options. The truth believed is a lie; the same thing experienced is the truth. Maybe?! When I was studying sales, I heard a story. We tend to do what is reasonable even when it doesn’t make any difference. Walking down the street on the way home a man finds his next-door neighbor on his hands and knees in the yard. Asking what he is doing, his neighbor says he is looking for his house keys. Being a friendly neighbor, he begins to help look for the keys with him. At some point he asks, “Where did you see your keys last?”
His neighbor says, “In my bedroom.”
“Then why are we looking out here?” he replies.
“There is more light out here.”
If you keep looking where it is easy, where everyone else is looking, where you were told to look and what you are looking for is not there, you will be looking there forever.
If you assume nature is wise, your body will naturally heal itself. You may have to change what you are doing however!
My health and nutrition investigation discovered three different viewpoints.
Conventional [western] medicine acknowledges nutrition exists but not much more. Drugs suppress the immune system response that might fix or adjust any malfunction. All human bodies are considered the same and virtually interchangeable. Nutrition has a minimal effect and you the patient is a passive follower of instructions by your doctor.
Many nutritional programs today look at the nutritional imbalances and prescribe a formula to manipulate the body and fix the disease. They seldom discuss immune response and any problems if your body is deficient in one or more nutritional substances. All bodies are viewed the same and we only have to figure out what you need to do to be a good little patient and do what the person in authority says. Is there any real difference in these first two?
The view that caught my attention twenty odd years ago is to look at all the components that support MY body regulating itself. Any imbalance in my unique body affects all the other areas of regulation. How my body tolerates the food I eat affects all the self-regulating systems. Disease is the regulation systems out of balance and distorted by nutritional choices, stress and my attitudes. Once I learned how my body reacts, I discovered how to restore balance and the self-regulating features of my body do the rest. YES!!!! You are in charge.
