Having worked in western medicine for 5 years, and having just spent the past year studying eastern medicine with my main focus on Ayurveda, I have learned a thing or two about the differences between health and wellness. As I just googled to get some humor of the definition of western medicine, I came across this "The type of medical treatment that is the most popular in North America and Western European countries, based on the use of drugs and surgery to treat symptoms, signs of illness." Mmmhmmm....
So basically as we all know, if you are a resident of the US, that anytime you go to the doctor, you will get a prescription for something if your examination leads to that. This just seems like the correct thing to do, yes? If something is wrong, we go to the doctor to get it fixed. Most of the time, its a common cold, or flu that a Z-pack of week dose of steroids will cure. Some other minor treatments go on for maybe two weeks or more. Then we have other types of doctors that give patients medications for depression, PTSD, physical pain from an accident, etc. These sort of patients, have either "chemical imbalances, or some sort of disorder where it has been clinically diagnosed and written up as a code in an ICD-9 book. Mmhmmm...
For some patients, they go on living their lives and over the years decide they do not need it anymore and go on living their lives just fine. Others, stay dependent on the medication, some just for blood pressure or cholesterol, others more serious medications that over time do more harm then healing.
I'm not writing this as a doctor, nor am I telling anyone what to do with their health, I am here soley to write about my own personal experience with intent to help others to do more research of how they take care of their bodies. The things we eat, the ways we think, this is where my focus is aiming at. Disease and sickness purely manifest through lack of care of body and mind, genetics, there is still plenty debate of this topic, but if we started looking at our food more as medicine rather than just something to fill our bodies with, I think we would be feeling alot differently. As I continue my blogs on the main page, I will continue to write about this topic.
Working in western medicine, I only wanted to help people, I worked in an Allergist and Immunologist for over 5 years and at first, it felt so great taking care of sick people, but as my consciousness grew, I learned to see, the medicine was only focusing on the problem not the solution. Putting a band aid on the wound, and expecting it to heal without the proper care. Western medicine does save lives, such drugs as penicillin, in these emergency situations brings light to a patient and patients family that which thought all hope was lost. What we need to understand is that western medicine can only do so much, some people put so much hope and faith in doctors that they don't do enough research themselves, when the time has come where the patient is no longer with us, they blame the doctors, some cases are far too severe to be saved, but in most, they can. They can with proper diet, proper mental activity. This is more than eating a stack of fruits and veggies for breakfast lunch and dinner. Each person has a different blueprint, we were all designed differently, we all handle things differently, so when it comes to diet we all need different nutrients to properly heal ourselves. I look forward to continuing these blogs as this topic means so much to me, if you can't tell so already. Love and light <3
