Wow my family and I have been watching shows on American channels the last couple days and I guess the sun going down earlier has caused us to snuggle more on the coach at night under a blanket or maybe better movies on?! Either way strangely enough we began to realize every commercial was about a new medication. You name it, Headache Meds, Thyroid Meds, Arthritis Meds, you name it we heard it! It became a joke, we usually turn the commercials down , but we actually started turning it up to hear the 10 mins long side affects lists after they announced the medication!!! We couldn’t help but laugh and gafaw in shock at the listed illnesses these medications listed, usually far worst then the malady that the medication was to be used to treat!
How did we get to a place of handing our power away? How did we get to a point where we trusted so deeply in the medical industry and government to regulate our treatment, our medications, our food and our environment? Now we are suffering worst side affects from our meds and have even heard of celebrities dying of side affects or unwittingly combining drugs that should not be mixed. (Many more die however we don’t her of them because they aren’t celebrities). Did you know that one of the side affects of Depression Medication is Suicidal thoughts and tendencies? Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT bashing Dr.’s or the medical industry. I’m trying to open our eyes. I have used Birth Control that sent my hormones wild, and Depression Medication got me through a tough time, however at what cost?
Now that I am aware of other options, healthier options with NO SIDE AFFECTS I have not been sick, I have maintained good health and in the first sign of ‘Imbalance’ or ‘Dis-Ease’ I deal with it energetically. And I am learning about more new amazing treatments all the time!
In a recent article sent to me was an alert to the fact that our Ontario Health Minister is in the process of attempting to shut down all Holistic Practices. This effort is backed by a group of Psychologists. Now I urge you to look into this and if you feel your rights are being violated in your freedom to choose the treatment you want, feel free to sign the petition against it. I ask you, why would this not have been made public and why are Holistic Practitioners being targeted?
Any answers? Here is my theory. There is more money in Medications, Labels, and institutionalizing people then there is in empowering and healing people. You see once someone is empowered with that realization that they have all they need within them to heal and are guided by a Holistic Practitioner, they shouldn’t need such aggressive meds and treatment. Here-in Lies the problem. Economics. We are making money off people being sick.
As I’m sure you know I could go on forever, but encourage you to also read a book called ‘This Changes Everything’, which is an eye opener to economics tied to the demise of our planet. We are all connected as I have mentioned before, your money talks, use it wisely, pick greener products, GMO free food and use the Holistic options available to you and your family to take back the power of your health and wellness.
We enjoyed Kerstin Kramer’s talk last week regarding healthy Holistic Treatment options , not only at HHDS but in our community, and participated in a great Health and Wellness Show @ the Kitchener City hall called ‘Growing Up Healthy’. These were both free to our community! Utilize this! If you are around this weekend or are enjoying the KOI MUSIC FESTIVAL, pop in to Kitchener City hall from 11-3 for the Holistic Fair Courteousy of Steph VanDeVen, a good friend of mine, who is trying to spread the word for local Holistic options. Check it out, your health will blossom!
