I spent last evening with the AMISH discussing health issues and concerns and the conversation then led to what is happening right now in the world with the bombings and such. I was totally shocked that they were so in tuned with what is happening now in our world considering they don't have television or telephones. Their simple lifestyle does give you pause for thought. I never go into these communities that I don't have a crowd slowly gather and we just sit and talk. There is the absence of video games for the kids and phones ringing, and no visible watches or name brand jeans. As I oogled over one brand new baby, we discussed immunizations and found with some interesting conclusions including that half of the community was immunized and half were not and that would even be in the same family. They are very much inclined to do herbs and chiropractors as first line intervention. We talked about the role of preventive medicine and routine testing and the absolute need for immunizations. We even talked about nutrition and their use of supplements. It always leads back to personal concerns and how to get care for what is happening in their lives now. They are a hard working group with a very loving attitude and a great sense of humor but very indoctrinated to keep to the simple life although they won't have phones in their homes, they will have one on their porch or use a neighbors.
With all the recent activities in the world, it gives pause to just keeping it simple. Life should not be this complex and construed. Our goal should be to love one another and of course, the Golden Rule of do unto others as you would have them do to you...(paraphrased). Which when you look at it all is back to basics and what our country was founded and guided by, faith!
I can't predict what is coming nor can I tell you what time you have here on earth but I do know if we don't slow down and care for one another and turn back to that faith, that we are spiraling downward fast. What does this have to do with cancer, nothing and everything!
We can't help you if you can't help yourself! We give you chemotherapy and you ask for a break to go out and have a cigarette. You don't eat right and never include fruits or vegetables and you drink too much and don't exercise but yet you think a magic pill can fix it all. I wish it could but we have to look within ourselves, our lifestyles, our stress, and what can we do to make it better. No, I am not blaming you for getting cancer but I am saying you can help yourself to make it better. So this morning is a simple reflection of what I perceive has been happening and what lies ahead in some aspects. We have to turn to our higher power, and help those around us and treat ourselves better. Start today by mak
