Broken down is dis-ease. One’s instinct when they experience any kind of dis-ease is to call the Doctor, go the the Emergency Room, and/or get help to ease the problem anyway they can.
Generally speaking, we do have treatment choices, basically speaking – two: allopathic and traditional.
Allopathic is treating with pharmaceutical medicines.
Traditional is Natural Medicinal treatment using products made from natural sources.
CHEMICAL medicines are used to treat everything from a simple headache or toe ache to degenerative conditions to include heart disease and cancer. Chemical medicines treat the symptoms and rarely the cause.
TRADITIONAL/NATURAL medicines, in a simple sense, treat the cause by way of natural products made from animal, plant, mineral substances, or herbs, which are found in nature.
Treating symptoms never cures the cause of the disease/problem. True naturopathic treatment serves the purpose by way of Detoxification.

One year for Christmas, my parents gave me and my sister a book called HITCHHIKING WITH JIMMY MICROBE (1939) By Virginia Budd Jackson. It was the story of a Microbe and his contention with the accumulation of bacteria and germs that invade a human’s body, and personal hygiene.
Of course, from that moment on Dad wanted us to become doctors. Why…because he wanted to be a doctor. However, due to circumstances involving his family he ended up becoming a Dentist.
Isn’t it funny the things that influence one’s life. Retroactively, I am living my Dad’s dream. The difference is that I am going down the Natural Healing Highway instead of the Allopathic (pharmaceutical) Highway.
As Thomas Edison put it so wisely: “No one can overcome a health problem using the same mind-set that created the problem.”
The subject of Health can be sophisticated, ambiguous, and chaotic. In a nutshell….we are born, we live, we die, each in our own way and according to God’s plan.
I’ve been told I had pneumonia right after I was born. It is safe to say I wasn’t born the perfect baby. How did I get pneumonia? I don’t know or at least no one ever told me. However, having had pneumonia many times since, as well as other short lived health issues during my childhood and adulthood, I became inadvertently passionate about being well and staying well. It wasn’t until I was in my middle 30’s that I did anything about it.
Follow me as I share the next leg of my journey. I welcome comments and questions so don’t be afraid to ask. Questions will be researched and addressed in future blogs.
