Sometimes I need to write just to write. Many times when I feel this way, I dig a name for the Sprout out of the ashes. But I felt like it was better to let this one live with no name. So before I get into talking about the no specific yet valuable dribble that I have planned, let me tell you about our workshop last night.
Bread Beckers has a great setup for teaching. A full teaching kitchen, TV screen overhead, ceiling mounted camera to record. Its a pretty awesome setup. It was enjoyable to teach the five essentials of health to many newcomers. Individuals who aren’t patients, but much like many of you, do not have a clear grasp of the five essentials of health.
Nutrition, spinal health/maximized nervous system, reduced toxins, increased lean muscle and oxygen, and mental peace.
I wish I could go back and put many more of you in the seats to listen to the message. I often find myself thinking of specific patients when I am in the middle of a talk. I bring up a story of a patient with cancer, then I think of another patient with cancer who I think could be that same story. Or I tell the story of someone who was faced with a new diganosis of heart disease, when out of the blue it happened upon them. Then I wonder about who the next person might be to develop a heart disease diagnosis. The next person who will then say “oh no, I can’t believe it” and with that oh no they will run to a pill. And become another member of the over-drugged but still hopeless because drugs don’t heal, population.
I am involved with a podcast on The Garage Games channel. I find that we are educating many on the understanding that fitness and health are non-synonymous. That we are in a battle over the different health disciplines wanting to “OWN” health. On one side we have the medical model launching a united attack against all other mentality, that drugs are the winner. That modern science will heal you. Meanwhile, as people become more and more diseased, the true defenders of health, are battling with each other over what’s more important.
I honestly dislike the naturopath method so much, that I wanted to keep my wife from utilizing them for her lyme disease treatment. But we need testing, and that is a faster way to go about it, then me trying to order it, then find someone to draw blood for us. But the reason why I dislike it so much, is that it is such a fear based model of health. Everything is inside out, and none of it is honoring of the self healing body that God made. Now I say all that, but it is better to consider bringing non-chemical herbals in, than drugs. But it still doesn’t line up with the principle that you were made self healing. So it has to be taken with a grain of salt.
Remember – I speak from the history of 500 people a week for a decade telling me their stories. So when someone runs off to an MD, or to “Progressive Medical Center”, and comes back telling me, “I’ve got it, I’ve got it!! They figured me out!! I just need to take this supplement regime for five weeks, this one for eight, and this for the rest of my life and I’ll be fixed!”
All I think of, are Suzy, and Billy, and Johnny, and Jimmy and Sally and Debbie who all said the same thing before you, and who all became jaded after twelve months, ten thousand dollars, and no improvement. Stop your lack of patience. Stay the course, shun the culture, get on board with the essentials, and let your healing begin. So what if it takes three years. If in three years you are healthier than you have ever been, three years will seem like an overnight.
OK, I think we got it covered for now. 1:30am, I took some time to focus on some important ideas tonight, read a little in other people’s blog posts along the way, and surely see the path towards health clearly at this moment. Be well and Be Blessed!
P.S. – If you haven’t looked into throwing your multivitamin away yet, its time.
