My Heart about Health

Sand Heart smallI believe the #1 biggest problem with all people is self deception. This is compounded by the fact that as humans, our  primary motivator is sensual indulgence.  We want quick easy, painfree lives.

To illustrate the first point, every prisoner in jail is able to justify why they are not guilty. As an extreme example:

When Kermit Gosnell was convicted and sentenced to a long time in prison for the murder of babies and at least one mother through performing very late term abortions in appalling conditions (filthy) with untrained employees for nearly 20 years in Pennsylvania, USA, his understanding of himself and his situation was surprising.

He gave a private interview to one reporter and apparently views himself as a victim of the system:  the laws are wrong about abortion, he was only helping to alleviate and fight poverty, etc.  He was all about helping women.  He sees himself as a Christian man and there was nothing wrong with what he did.  He would slit the neck of any baby that managed to live through his abortion in order to severe the spinal cord “because they were dying already, and would die, to help them not experience pain.”

I obviously fall into the category “all people” and realize my own propensity for self-deception.  I am also aware that there are many deceptive forces in the world seeking to deceive people.  These forces prey on our desire for pain free, sensually full lives.  I am well aware of my imperfections and past heinous sins both due to deception and sensual indulgence and I thank God every day for the grace He has shown me in forgiving my sins and helping me to see them clearly in light of His perfection. I believe He has opened my eyes to understand many truths about a lot of things I haven’t always understood.

One area I have gained a new understanding of is the allopathic medical system, which might have started with good intentions, but has been hijacked on many fronts for gain.  Having grown greatly in my awareness of health and wellness – how to achieve it and maintain it – and being exposed to the false basis most people are putting their faith in – pharmaceutical fixes, medical experts, surgery, chemotherapy, vaccines, etc., I feel compelled to help people understand that just because information comes beautifully packaged, it is not always trustworthy.  Doctors have received most of their medical education with a strong pharmaceutical bias.  Drug manufacturers have become incredibly clever at marketing and dodge ball.  Get your drugs into the hands of people first, answer allegations, or withdraw your bad drug later.

So many government agencies and even ‘non profit’ fundraising groups have degenerated to become orientated around their own self-perpetuation and job security rather than the ‘good’ they are supposed to be doing. Most of their time, money and marketing is spent to justify their very existence rather than seeking truth and helping increase the health, safety or betterment of individuals or the country. The FDA, CDC and other federal agencies have unwittingly become industry captives and are not able to provide the protection they were originally designed to give. The public faith blindly given to so many aspects of our society, has unfortunately become very risky.

I admit that I have perhaps gone a bit too far in my cynicism and disbelief in the traditional “sickness oriented” medical system.  I think surgeons are fantastic when they have to put people back together after a severe accident.  Most doctors and others connected with the medical system are not evil people.  However, the deception is great and the reverence for pharmaceutical solutions is very powerful.  I want to warn the unsuspecting and figure out how to effectively help others grow in their understanding of how to further their own health.  I want to help people enjoy vibrant health and wholeness of soul. I appreciate many who have helped me along in my journey.

We are all on a journey of discovery.  What have you discovered about wellness and wholeness on your journey?

  2. You asked in this post “What have you discovered about wellness and wholeness on your journey?” One thing that I believe has made a huge difference in the health of my husband and me is the powerful antioxidant grape seed extract.

    I was in my early forties when I went to nursing school. I had frequent asthma attacks and used an inhaler every day. I also had painful crippling bursitis in my shoulder and in both knees, and my face was starting to age.

    One of my nursing instructors suggested that I take an antioxidant. After about a month of taking the natural supplement every day, my bursitis was completely gone, I was no longer having asthma attacks, and my face looked noticeably younger. I have been taking grape seed extract almost daily for the past nineteen years. Still no bursitis, still no asthma, and at 62 I look almost twenty years younger.

    How do I know it was the grape seed extract that did this? Because, on the rare occasion when I let myself run out, after about a week without it, my bursitis comes back.

    I met my husband in 2003 and married him in 2004 when we were both in our fifties. He’d had 2 heart attacks the year before we met. I got my husband on the grape seed extract. Every year when he had his annual heart tests, his cardiologist said his heart was in better condition than the year before. Then three years ago, after having taken the grape seed extract daily for about eight years, his cardiologist said that his tests looked like he had never had a heart attack!

    My 66 year old husband is diabetic, obese, and had documented high exposure to the deadly poison called Agent Orange in Vietnam. But despite these things, his heart and overall health is amazingly good. Now, if only I could get him to exercise….

    • Thanks for sharing that tip! I’m eager to order some grape seed extract and try it! I eat a lot of super foods and try not to have to take too many supplements! But your experience is so dramatic, I’m gonna give it a shot!

  3. Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed
    to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours
    take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to operating
    a blog however I do write in my diary daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

    • Thanks for recognizing my work and my web-site. I just write out of the passions God has given me. I learn new things all the time. I like to share them. There are a lot of videos and training available for free to help you get started in learning how to blog. WordPress.com is quite easy, but others I know like Weebly, etc. If God has given you a passion about a subject you can start to write and see where it goes. I pray you will be given the wisdom and courage to face all the decisions in your life.
