Health News to Self-Heal
To self-heal is to restore health and wellness in the most natural way, not by merely suppressing the symptoms of any disease or disorder, but by completely getting rid of it through utilizing resources naturally available to the body, the mind, and the soul. It is a holistic approach to wellness through alignment of the body, the mind, and the soul for balance and harmony.
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, once said: “To do nothing is also a good remedy.” With an innate built-in mechanism to self-heal, your body is very forgiving. Even after years of abuse, it is still capable of recovering from any disease, if you would give it the opportunity.
If the body can heal itself, then why do people seek other alternatives? The explanation is that most people have the mindset for an instant quick-fix. To meet the desire to get rid of disease symptoms instantly, they resort to medications. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical drugs are toxic chemicals that remove the symptoms without eradicating the disease itself. In addition, toxic chemicals have long-term adverse effects on body cells and organs because they affect the body chemistry over the long haul. Another reason why people resist self-healing is that the media, the medical community, and the pharmaceutical industry have bombarded the public with the notion that Western medicine and drugs are the only solutions to their health problems.
Empower yourself with knowledge and information from news to self-heal. To self-heal, you must utilize your mind power to activate your body's own self-healing mechanism, to understand the basic needs of your body for wellness, as well as to discern the messages sent by your body to your mind as warning signs of the imminence of a disease or disorder.
The News on Epidemic of Overtreatment of Prostate Cancer Must Stop
On July 14, 2014, CNN reported the news: Epidemic of Overtreatment of Prostate Cancer Must Stop.
"Prostate cancer is a significant disease in the U.S. In 2014 alone, the American Cancer Society estimates, 233,000 men will be diagnosed and 29,480 will die of it. This week, two important studies showing how prostate cancer is treated in the U.S. were published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
"The findings should cause those of us who treat prostate cancer and the organizations that advocate for prostate cancer awareness to take notice. These studies found that a large number of American men with prostate cancer get unnecessary and aggressive treatment. In some cases, these treatments are known to be worthless and even harmful.
"One study more than 20 years long and involving more than 60,000 men diagnosed with cancer confined to the prostate found that initial treatment with anti-androgen hormonal therapies is common. This study also confirmed previous research showing that this treatment in this population does not prolong survival. . . .
"A number of studies in the U.S. and Europe have shown that there is a type of prostate cancer that is localized to the prostate and of good prognosis, meaning it rarely progresses or causes harm if left alone."
Wisdom from the News
In another news recently reported by CNN, about 50 percent of Americans are now on prescription medications. The number is staggering. We have become a society of medicine and drugs. Now is the time to wake up, and look at all the prescription drugs you are taking. Do they really help you? Do they do more harm than good? Are you addicted to these drugs? Only you have the answers.
As for myself, more than a decade ago, I was on more than 10 pharmaceutical drugs to deal with my myasthenia gravis, which is an autoimmune disease. I had to take so many drugs, because some of them are toxic chemicals that require other drugs to offset their harmful side effects. I had been on them for more than two years until I decided to stop all medications (I am in no way suggesting that you should do likewise). Now, for more than a decade, I have been 100 percent drug free. My point is that you should never readily reach out for any over-the-counter drugs to heal your everyday ailments. Even for prescription drugs, you should be cautious, and ask your doctor why you should be taking them, and how they may affect your health long term.
