Health and fear are two sides of the same coin. Considering you’re an Escapeartist reader – at some stage in your life – you’ve probably entertained the thought of moving to the other side of the planet. Though, perhaps some of you have never got past the ‘dream’ phase because of certain, worrisome factors. The major and most important consideration is always ‘health’. “What’s the medical system like on the other side of the planet?” “Will my ‘health’ insurance cover costs?” “What if I need emergency surgery etc?”
All valid concerns – off course. But what about a change in perspective? Most of us are operating from a place of dread, whereby we expect to fall ill. We can expect to grow old, that’s for sure. But why buy into the myth that along with ageing, we must automatically surrender to illness, disease and despair?
How about an entirely new school of thought?
What about self-education, self-diagnoses and healing via our own efforts – using ways and methods that have been around for thousands of years? There’s no way your doctor can know you as well as you know yourself. Just because he/she knows how the engine works, doesn’t mean he/she is capable of fixing it. A generic diagnosis is about as good as it gets, along with a bag full of medication to take home. Antibiotics, cholesterol tablets, heart tablets, blood pressure tablets, diabetic insulin, the list goes on. And you end up taking poison for the rest of your life, because you fear the consequences if you don’t do as you’re told. Why do we put our trust in the hands of strangers when it comes to our precious health? Why are we so easily convinced by a medical system that doesn’t always have our best interests at heart? It’s no secret that many so-called medical experts are in bed with the pharmaceutical industry. Why else would they push death sentences like chemo and radiotherapy upon the vulnerable, unsuspecting masses? Perhaps we yield to the medical establishment because it’s easier to let other people make the big decisions – and then we can always blame something/someone else when things don’t work to plan.
