The Best Medicine

According to an old story, a lord of ancient China once asked his physician, who was the most skilled physician in the healing arts. The physician, whose reputation was of the highest in medical science in China at the time replied, "My eldest brother sees the spirit of sickness and removes it before it takes shape, so his name does not get out of the house. My elder brother cures sickness when it is still extremely minute, so his name does not get out of the neighborhood. As for me, I puncture veins, prescribe potions, and massage skin, so from time to time, my name gets out and is heard among the lords."

The medical industry we are all familiar with is just what it is called. It is an industry. It's just business. It is not designed to heal you to never be sick, but to give you a band-aid treatment so that you will return as another loyal customer. Healing patients permanently would be self defeating to the industry.

In contrast, the healers that you don't hear too much about are actually the ones that you might have greater success looking into. Reiki, acupuncture, and other forms of healing that deal with the unseen life forces that animate us do not treat illness as an enemy to be fought, but as an imbalance in the energy of your body. As a result, the cause of the problem is eliminated instead of covered up by drugs or surgery. We are beings of spirit. We have unseen energy bodies. To only focus on what can be seen when trying to heal us is a closed minded approach.

I, myself, was in a very bad auto accident a few years ago. I got a bad head injury which resulted in the paralysis of the left side of my face. I could not even close my left eye when I blinked. The medical industry's solution for the problem was surgery on my eyelid (almost laughable). Fortunately, my mother suggested I get acupuncture treatment. As a result, the movement in my face started returning and I could completely close my eye with no problem. All this because the doctor focuses on my flow of 'chi' (life force energy) that he detected was altered by the accident. Redirecting the flow returns balance and can solve a lot more problems than drugs and surgery.

I encourage you not to take my word for it. Do your own research and find out the wonders of real healing as opposed to band-aid treatment. Returning to a state of balance and harmony is always the best medicine.

Interesting and important subject (glad it helped you too)

I read a good summary once that Eastern was the lifestyle and the method to ongoing good health - but western was still useful as a quick fix in times when things come by surprise.

This is certainly something that benefited ancestors and would benefit the planet but for the "business" model of health you mention.

Good morning -

I understand completely. I implore exercise and balancing techniques to name a few along with maintaining a sense of humor, which is such good medicine. :-)
I am also frightened at times by the unpredictability of my condition. M S

I am independent and mobile ,so long as I 'balance' my life......
My friend is a Raiki master and she has tapped my energy.

The medication(s) for M S are horrid, each one with side effects that are worst than the condition. And they are VERY expensive. The one I am on now, Avonex, is $1400.00/month. Talk about big business, huh?

Every day is a precious gift - each moment valued immensely. As I am surrounded by love,nature, and peace.....music, laughter and "hope", the tree.

Love Gail
peace.....

Your experience with the medical industry makes sense. I am glad that you were able to find someone who treat the holistic you rather than treat with a band-aid fix. When we are open to the ancient healing methods we can often find more effective treatment. This is an important subject, thank-you for creating more awareness.

I am really happy to hear that your treatment went so well. Its like your eye was still in shock and the muscles were contracted because of the trauma. And then acupuncture helped to loosen the muscle and to allow spirit or chi to flow once again.

In many ways, this is the root of all illness. There is a contraction in the energy field that causes or is a blockage. When the blockage is carassed and given love, and the darkness is listened to, then it will open up to the light again to bring health and vibrancy to the mind, body, and soul.

Great Post C.Om! Thank you for sharing that info and your experience.

"Reiki, acupuncture, and other forms of healing that deal with the unseen life forces that animate us do not treat illness as an enemy to be fought, but as an imbalance in the energy of your body.

If I may share with Gail a website from a program I heard on Global Medcine Review which has many avenues of healing information. The site is http://abetterworld.net/Also there is an event on the weekend of April 24-26, 2009. Webpage for that is http://abetterworld.net/events2.htmYou can also check out http://www.bioreprogramming.net/I agree with Tao that "western was still useful as a quick fix in times when things come by surprise."

Blessings to you

I'm glad that you touched on this subject. We've chopped it up on this matter plenty. From the comments it seems like many are on the same page, which is nothing short of amazing.

I think that summary you mentioned nailed it on the head. ;-)

*Gail
Your experience with this healing is valuable. It is a great way to expand the possibilities for those who are not aware of it. Thank you for sharing your experience.

*Mark
Thank you for expressing an interest. Ancient knowledge can still be more advanced than "the newest thing." Time may seem linear, but all solutions always exist and can be tapped at any moment.

*Natural Moments
I can fully agree. It is amazing how our cells have memory that they hold on to and once given attention, they can become aligned with the rest of our energy.

*bometernally
Thank you. And I agree with Tao as well.

*Walt
True indeed! Good to see you man.

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.
