When people experience physical illness one course they often take is using medication to change what is going on. If there is no medication available for dealing with a certain problem, they may work endlessly in search of a medical method to solve the problems they are experiencing.
There’s just one thing.
While medication may have valid uses in facilitating a healing process or in helping a person get some temporary relief, the truth is that one cannot really attain wellness through medical intervention.
This fact can be understood through simple logic.
Disease is always created by people’s living in disease creating ways. Whether the problem is damagingly high blood pressure, inability to process sugar, often called diabetes, raging cellular growth, often called cancer, or some other problem, the reason it is happening is that people are living in such a way as to create the problems they are experiencing.
What this means is that even if they can somehow change the symptoms they are experiencing by using medication, the ways that underlie the creation of the problems can be and likely will still be there, and so the people will continue to create and experience problems.
Another way to put it is this. Do you really believe that one can continue to live in stressed out, disease creating ways and somehow medicate one’s self to health? Clearly that makes little sense.
For instance, over the past few years I have been working with people experiencing the problem often called als. People who experience als do so because they, along with others around them, have been living in such a way as to create this condition. Among other things, people who experience als tend to repress their emotions to an extreme degree, overwhelm themselves by taking on all kinds of things in order to prove themselves and deal with life issues in ways that create building stress. In addition many of their bodies contain high levels of substances commonly involved in the creation of health problems. Even if their physical symptoms could somehow be stabilized by using medication, their ways of handling life could basically remain the same. One cannot live in the ways these people do and be healthy, and you can be sure that even with medication anyone living this way will continue to experience disease in some form.
This brings up an additional issue with using medication.
People who start using medication to handle one problem often find that what happens next is that they experience an even worse problem. In other words, they experience one problem and successfully use medication to block the symptoms of that problem and enable themselves to continue to live in disease creating ways. Then, continuing on the same path, they create something worse.
For instance, a common pattern I have seen is that before experiencing als, some people were experiencing another, less problematic, stress related problem such as high blood pressure and they used medication to keep that issue in check. Then, still stressed and living in non wellness creating ways, they went on to experience als.
While it may be difficult to imagine something worse than als, or scleroderma or other degenerative problems, logic dictates that if a person actually were to use medication to somehow enable himself to keep living in the ways underlying the creation of these problems, the person could or even likely would make things even worse. A person who keeps an aggressively degenerative disease in check with medication could very well experience a new problem, maybe one we have not really seen much before. I have heard of at least one health problem that sounds even worse than any of the ones I mentioned and I suspect there are others. Or things could manifest in another way. For one thing the planet itself is not looking too healthy these days. Maybe the next thing to come after medically blocking the symptoms of something like als or Huntington’s is famine, or nuclear catastrophe, or complete ecosystem breakdown and failure.
If that sounds extreme to you, consider that significant health problems arise out of people making choices that add up to extreme stress. So it is only logical that continuing to make these types of choices is going to add up to even more stress and disease somehow or other, and one way that could happen is through aggravation of the planet wide problems we are already experiencing.
Could there be some valid uses of medication to facilitate a healing process? Maybe. For one thing, maybe it makes sense to use medication to relieve symptoms while people make changes to create lasting improvement. Medication may also help people to handle acute situations like allergic reactions until they learn to handle these problems in other ways.
Still, the key thing to understand is that in general medication and medical and surgical intervention are not really ways to health. To really make things better, one needs to understand and apply healing, issue resolving approaches that create true, sustainable wellness.
