To heal or not

When we speak of ‘disease’ we are actually referring to the diagnostic label a patient is given. ‘He has ‘rheumatoid arthritis’ or he has ‘diabetes type 1’. Conventional medicine has classified diseases along these lines and so we have specialists for each disease. Each different part on our body basically calls for a different doctor. The idea behind such treatments is that disease is a local problem and we should solve the local problem like giving a diabetic insulin, because his pancreas cannot secret the insulin anymore.

Needless to say, a lot of money is pumped into finding the right cure for each disease. Every once in a while, it seems like there’s hope but shortly after that hope fades when the hideous side effects come to the light. In the end of the day, especially when it comes to chronic diseases the relieving effect is temporary and therefor man would never be free. Health is man’s freedom to be in the moment and fulfill the purpose of life, disease comes in the way of this purpose since it doesn’t allow him to react to the present. It makes him react to a situation from the past. (Hahnemann: Founding father of Homeopathy (1755-1843)

Isn’t it just so logical that cure should be sought out from a totally different viewpoint? A viewpoint of treating the person behind any given disease and attempting to treat the root cause of the disturbance that has created the disease in the first place.

Bottom line: make sure that whomever is treating you, sees you as a whole and not just a part.
