Alternative Energy Healing and Self-Responsibility

Why use a biospiritual approach to healing ourselves? To paraphrase Albert Einstein – one definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results. For too many of us, the medical status quo just doesn’t work well enough. Adopting a biospiritual approach and including alternative energy healing methods in our daily lives creates attitudes of self-empowerment and self-responsibility that are critically needed now.

However, there's another equally important reason to remember - BioSpirituality strengthens the awareness of our communal and spiritual connections with one another – We are in this together! In this holographic universe, what affects you also affects me and all others on an essential level.

You’re probably well aware of the deepening health care crisis in the U.S. There are many reasons for this of course, including:

  • Monumental cost of health care provider services
  • Lack of affordable health insurance options (most folks agree the recently passed health care bill is not an acceptable solution)
  • Staggering rise in iatrogenic deaths/illnesses
  • Escalating socio-economic and political influence of Big Pharma
In 2000, the World Health Organization ranked the overall performance of the U.S. health care system an unimpressive 37th out of 191 countries. Factor in a general population whose health continues to slide down the slippery slopes of chronic, degenerating dis-ease and dis-ability and we’ve got a serious dilemma.

The following chart uses statistics from David Cameron Gikani's Diet Liberation to illustrate the magnitude of this dilemma:

Keep in mind when viewing these statistics that most heart disease (and arguably most cancer as well) is preventable. And did you happen to notice that doctor prescribed medicine kills more people than car accidents, suicide or AIDS combined? Prescription medicines killed almost five times as many people as did AIDS!

What you don't know can kill you

Or at least drastically lower your quality of life factor. Despite the grand claims of drug companies, their products may actually cause illness rather than cure it.

“Iatrogenic illness” means any illness caused by doctors and “polypharmacy” means giving a patient too many different drugs.

According to medical journals iatrogenic illness and polypharmacy are rampant in this country. One journal reported that many drugs can cause Parkinson's-like symptoms and concluded that "drug-induced parkinsonism is frequent."

Another journal reported a study which listed 22 different categories of drugs that can cause symptoms that mimic Alzheimer's... plus 14 different over-the-counter drugs that can cause those symptoms! Always try natural remedies first. Make pharmaceuticals a last resort, not a first option.

This short video from sums up the gruesome statistics:

Now contrast the preceding numbers with this bit from an article published in the London newspaper The Independent:

“The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) – the government group responsible for regulating UK medicines, including herbs – says that between 2000 and August 2004, there were 451 reports of suspected adverse reactions involving herbal preparations, of which 152 were serious…By way of comparison, consider this from a report in the British Medical Journal last year: In England alone, (not including Scotland, Wales or Ireland) reactions to drugs that led to hospitalizations followed by death are estimated at 5,700 a year and could actually be closer to 10,000.”

Obviously, not all herbs are completely safe. But used with knowledge and respect, they are powerfully beneficial healing allies...and they’re a lot safer than drugs.

In his book, Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About, Kevin Trudeau writes that, for at least the last hundred years, a drug has never cured anyone. Concurring with the above video's suggestion to “follow the money,” he says that, if you think about it, there is no motivation for drug companies to find actual cures, since their profits come from sick people who buy the medicines they market. Their drugs are designed to alleviate suffering so that the ‘customer’ (not the ‘patient’) will buy the product again. There’s no motivation to offer a cure; it would put the company out of business. The only thing that is required of any chief executive officer heading up a publicly listed drug company, Trudeau reminds us, is to make a profit for shareholders, and in his opinion, this actually runs counter to the idea of curing illnesses.

Compare this with the approach of traditional healers, who were often paid to keep patients well and received no payment at all when their patients got ill.

In traditional China, for example, villagers paid the doctors and herbalists for every day they remained healthy. If a patient became ill, then the healer worked for free in order to heal them, only receiving payments again when the patient had fully recovered.

In today's society however, managing illness is extremely profitable, curing it is not.

Numbers are powerful

And the scope of illness and pathology in this country is staggering; the acceptance of it, disturbing. The following numbers are but a few of those listed by Michael Parenti in his book, Hidden Holocaust. Consider that in any one year:

  • 473,000 die prematurely from tobacco-related illnesses; 53,000 of these are nonsmokers.
  • 27,000 Americans commit suicide.
  • 5,000 attempt suicide; some estimates are higher.
  • 37,000,000, or one out of every six Americans, regularly use emotion controlling medical drugs. The users are mostly women. The pushers are doctors; the suppliers are pharmaceutical companies; the profits are stupendous.
  • 2,000,000 non-hospitalized persons are given powerful mind-control drugs, sometimes described as "chemical straitjackets."
  • 5,000 die from psychoactive drug treatments.
  • 200,000 are subjected to electric shock treatments that are injurious to the brain and nervous system.
  • 600 to 1,000 are lobotomized, mostly women.
  • 25,000,000, or one out of every 10 Americans, seek help from psychiatric, psychotherapeutic, or medical sources for mental and emotional problems, at a cost of over $4 billion annually.
  • 6,800,000 turn to non-medical services, such as ministers, welfare agencies, and social counselors for help with emotional troubles. In all, some 80,000,000 have sought some kind of psychological counseling in their lifetimes.
  • 1,300,000 suffer some kind of injury related to treatment at hospitals.
  • 2,000,000 undergo unnecessary surgical operations; 10,000 of whom die from the surgery.
  • 180,000 die from adverse reactions to all medical treatments, more than are killed by airline and automobile accidents combined.
  • 14,000+ die from overdoses of legal prescription drugs.
  • 126,000 children are born with a major birth defect, mostly due to insufficient prenatal care, nutritional deficiency, environmental toxicity, or maternal drug addiction.
  • 100,000 workers die prematurely from work-related diseases.
  • 60,000 are killed by toxic environmental pollutants or contaminants in food, water or air.
  • 4,000 die from eating contaminated meat.
  • 20,000 others suffer from poisoning by E.coli 0157-H7, the mutant bacteria found in contaminated meat that generally leads to lifelong physical and mental health problems.

At present:

  • 15,000+ have tuberculosis, with the numbers growing rapidly;
  • 10,000,000 or more carry the tuberculosis bacilli, with large numbers among the economically deprived or addicted.
  • 16,000,000 have diabetes, up from 11,000,000 in 1983 as Americans get more sedentary and sugar addicted. Left untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, kidney failure and nerve damage.
  • 160,000 will die from diabetes this year.
  • 2,400,000 million suffer from some variety of seriously incapacitating chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • 10,000,000+ suffer from symptomatic asthma, an increase of 145 percent from 1990 to 1995, largely due to the increasingly polluted quality of the air we breathe.
  • 40,000,000 or more are without health insurance or protection from catastrophic illness.
  • 1,000,000 are estimated to have AIDS as of 1996; over
  • 250,000 have died of that disease.
  • 950,000 school children are treated with powerful mind control drugs for "hyperactivity" every year--with side effects like weight loss, growth retardation and acute psychosis.

Okay, enough numbers. Though they are powerful, I’m sure you’ve got the picture. Here’s my point – these numbers don’t have to be so high! Cancer for instance, was a rarity until a couple of generations ago. Today, in the United States, it’s estimated that 30 percent of the population will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime.

So, what can we do about this situation? How do we reclaim self-responsibility for our own health? Where do we find life-affirming alternatives to the conventional 'business' of healthcare?
