I looked up the synonyms for 'sickness' on thesaurus.com the other day. Synonyms are different words that mean the same thing in general.
For the word 'sickness', here's the short list of synonyms:
disease, ailment, disorder, ill health, illness, infirmity, malady, nausea, syndrome, affliction, bug, indisposition, and queasiness.
So, let's focus on the word 'disease'. What is disease?
We'll use Thesaurus.com's number one definition to work with:
a disordered or incorrectly functioning organ, part, structure, or system of the body RESULTING from the effect of genetic or developmental errors, infection, poisons, nutritional deficiency or imbalance, toxicity, or unfavorable environmental factors.
Something going wrong physically RESULTING from different root causes. Now some of those root causes are things no one can do anything about.
Genetics is something that is being debated by micro-biologists around the planet. Dr. Bruce Lipton, the author of 'Biology of Belief'. He advocates what is called epi-genetics, which has not been accepted as yet by main-stream medicine. But, in my experience with hypnosis clients, I can see the value of what he believes.
He believes we are born with a genetic potential for both disease AND excellence, and that environmental, mental, emotional, and spiritual factors activate those potentials, in a nutshell, and in my interpretation. So, yes, there is something that you can do concerning your genetics.
Developmental errors...well, that's what therapies were developed to address. Physical therapies, psychotherapies, religion...so, that is something that you can change or correct.
Infection...mainstream has ways, however, they are becoming increasingly dangerous, expensive, and ineffective as we travel into the future. There's other more natural ways that aren't covered by traditional insurance, but then again, what is your health worth?
Poisons....the ones under your sink. You can now replace those cleaning fluids with more natural ones. Melaleuca.com comes to mind.
The poisons in your water can be substituted by having distilled water to drink and cook with. The stuff in the food, you can limit by growing what you can yourself, and that includes sprouting seeds, and by buying natural and organic, unprocessed foods and cooking them yourself.
The poisons in the atmosphere, you really can't do much about, but getting outside air and sunshine is always better for you than staying indoors all the time.
I could go on. What I'm trying to point out is that the hypertension, the obesity, the Type 2 Diabetes, the heart disease, the cancer, are not the disease. They are the symptoms. The causes of these 'symptoms' are the actual disease, sickness, illness, ailment.
So, that's one of the reasons we call our project, “The Weigh”. Because the most visible symptom of the real disease that we see every day is obesity and being over-weight. That's the most visible symptom.
The less visible symptoms are the diabetes, the hypertension, the heart disease, the enlarged postate, the cancers....the ineffectiveness of our immune system...
The environmental poisons, the way we eat, the household products we use, the proper nutrition and supplements we need speak to the causes of those 'symptoms'.
What is disease? Well, the way we think of disease in Western Civilization, or what I like to call, Civilization, is actually the end result, the symptoms, of what really ails us. And that cause, the real disease, is what I'd like to address next time.
