Dr. Doctor, Give me the News

I recently had a very intelligent conversation with a highly educated friend. We were discussing the differences between pharmaceutical doctors, holistic practitioners, and spiritual healers. The interesting commonality was not what one might expect. Not all of them want to heal people, just like not all people want to be healed. You might question why someone who goes to a doctor would not want to be healed. The answer is, it is hard. “What?” you might ask.

I do believe that most – yes, I said MOST – of our physical chronic illnesses, diseases and conditions are brought on by us. Yep. Oh boy, this is getting controversial. Are you still here? Our minds are VERY powerful. We don’t truly even know what it is capable of – what we are capable of. A lot of people can get behind this thought but it’s typically in the context of the good that we can do for ourselves and others – our potential in a positive aspect. But isn’t the opposite, then, true? Most people don’t enjoy being sick. They don’t wish for illness to befall them. And when it does happen, the majority of Americans go to the drug store or the doctor. If the issue is more than what a simple medicine can “cure,” there may be a treatment program, a surgery, a physical therapy regimen,...
