Many have spent countless lifetimes attempting to find the best way to fight and ward off disease processes. Many avenues of treatment have been scoured, and many techniques make claims. The magic pill, potion, silver bullet and fountain of youth are holy grails in the arena of medicine.
Medicine, by its original definition, is the treatment of disease. And each disease seems to have researchers and proponents advocating a different solution. In a strictly Newtonian world, this makes logical sense.
But we don’t live in a Newtonian world, and that is especially evident within the experience of a human body.
Indeed, in the fight against disease, western medicine will never succeed. It’s on the wrong side of reality. It’s stuck in an old Newtonian world.
There is no cure for disease. Not a single one. Not for any disease process. There are ways to manipulate symptoms, feelings, and chemical responses in the biology of a body, but none get rid of disease.
Because there is only one cause of disease - the absence of health.
Dis-ease = loss of ease = loss of health. And you can’t fight the loss of, or the absence of something. You can only create or recreate that something.
When you have darkness can you fight it? Ultimately you can only create or recreate the light, and then the darkness is “gone”. The same with disease and health. You can only use tools, methods, and processes that create or restore health.
Health: “Optimum physical, emotional and social well-being, and not merely the absence of dis-ease.” (World Health Organization) And optimum, in the experience of a biological organism like a human, has to be created and sustained from within. Not from the constant manipulation of symptoms or chemical reactions from the outside.
