“It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.“ ~ Mahatma Gandhi.
There is a definite ill-health industry we ignorantly created as a foundation to our economies, so there is a dependency upon ill-health continuing. Much that we have available upon our earth, available naturally, is all the healing aids/medicines we ever required, and our countries have different versions according to their climate/geographical positioning.
When illness and life ignorance was introduced by force to many countries, in the name of ‘Superiority’, by ignorant, miserable self-serving emotionally ill people, 😉 we were given the situation of diseases that a body had no naturally occurring antibodies for, and a real case where medicines from elsewhere were definitely helpful and arguably required. In many cases however, traditional ways remain always best.
Historically there was an enormous marketing effort and a lot of pressure for people to become Doctors to expand an imposed control and influence. This was a society that ruled by giving no respect to people unless they achieved a title of some sort – if they didn’t achieve one through army means, to be a ‘Doctor’ was a title everyone then wanted – or to marry one! Not necessarily the most ‘caring of people’ people became Doctors at all, some just the ones who made the marks who desperately wanted the altered attention. I have crossed paths with these people, during the long time I was healing from many injuries in Western medicine situations.
Just because we humans invent something – as one of the Universe’s naturally occurring creatures – does not make it better than something the Universe naturally produced itself! Be wise, BE the coordinator/manager/mistress of YOU, as is your design. With the creation of gold coin came the market of medicines, but your own cultures had your own healing. What is still available? I grow a number of healing medicine plants native to Australia as a natural part of my garden, and have a cupboard filled with others from around the world – maybe native to your country! 🙂
Disease prevention, is by far the best way to manage ourselves.
Certainly there have been incredible advancements and accomplishments with modern medical science and phenomenal refinements to surgical procedures, but NOTHING is better than disease prevention. Health maintenance = Disease prevention = Health maintenance!
Realize and remember that car accidents and cigarettes are the biggest contributors to human injury and ill-health. Inventions = need for more inventions. That is their design, and the intent within the creativity that formed them. A natural life = a healthy life, less dependent upon any ill-health constructs and marketing.
Be proud. Keep as much of your cultures natural healings and yourself – as well as possible. This is our duty as a Human Being, the mechanic, garage attendant and driver of our body!
In health, we find our Self, and it is our health, that gives us our freedom to journey and sense through our life! 🙂
