The hard truth is, I cannot help everyone. Since the beginning of my journey into Natural Healing I have come across a certain type of mindset that is unable to accept or understand what natural healing can accomplish. this mindset is not looking for healing, only for relief of their uncomfortable symptoms. Symptoms earned as a result of years of unconscious living, the choices they have made and continue to make.
Often because they are in such discomfort or someone they trust has told them the Natural, Herbal Route, worked for them, they grasp onto the hope that something outside western medicine will have some sort of magic. The hope is to remove the symptoms, clear the discomfort with the minimum amount of effort on their part.
An old adage I came across years ago truly fits this sad mindset: They give their soul to the preacher, their brain to the teacher and their body to the doctor then set back and wounder why their life is such a complete failure.
The hard truth is, you are the only one who can determine the direction of your life or the degree of health and happiness you will have. Choose to live consciously, deliberately making decisions for yourself is the only way to ensure personal health and happiness. Natural healing is all about “Stopping the harmful choices, walking away from the hurtful people and things in our life, then choosing to replace them with healthful, healing choices and people. Set yourself up for a life of success, filled to the brim with health and happiness, where the heart, soul, and physical body, can be well.”
Once the body is sick or broken there are no pain-free roads back to health. As the toxic waste, that is creating the diseased condition in the body, is cleared there is a stress placed on the eliminative organs that must be supported. The detoxing, flushing, programs aid the body in removing the diseased condition, clearing the sick areas of the body. Once the toxic condition is cleared the body’s natural ability to self-heal begins. The health of the body can be regained if the body is given the proper nutrients to rebuild the sick or damaged area, and, the body holds enough vitality, (vigor, energy, strength,) within itself to affect the healing, restoring work needed.
The connection between the eliminative organs, such as the bowels, liver, and kidneys, and the diseased or broken area can be confusing to this mindset.
- Why, I’m asked, do I need to do a liver flush when I have an infection in my jaw?
- What do the bowels being cleared have to do with acid reflux or heartburn?
- Why when my blood pressure is spiking do you suggest flushing the kidneys?
The answer is key to healing the body. The toxic condition that has created the uncomfortable, painful issues in the body must be cleared. The only way to truly clear the waste is for the bowels to be open to allow the waste to pass out. Once the bowels are open the liver is then free to dump its waste and continue to “vacuum” or draw out the toxins from the affected area. The kidneys filter the blood and must also be supported or they will begin to show signs and symptoms of toxicity.
The hard truth is, the mindset that wants immediate relief from symptoms will continue to refuse to do the hard work or take responsibility for their life. They look for someone who they can make responsible for their healing. All around are aware of the pain or discomfort they experience. When pressed to learn or do something that will aid their recovery that might look like work, they dissolve into tears or become agitated, it is all too much for them, just give them the relief they want, that is all they are asking for, all this detoxing information is way too much for them to handle. The need to go to the root of the issue and support the body in restoring the broken or damaged area is what nature wants to do. Natural healing is not into symptom suppression, it is about going to the cause and allowing healing to happen the way the Father intended. The true gift of healing is in the journey, learning to accept all parts of who you are and begin making responsible choices from an understanding of the benefit received from the choices made.
