When we are talking about the media, it comes down to this question: do they create the consciousness of the people or is the consciousness of the people merely being reflected by the media?
Today we have more information and knowledge about the cure and prevention of disease than ever before in the history of mankind. The advancements that have been made in just the last few years have given us new insights about the treatment and prevention of virtually all illness and disease, making it safe to reach two major conclusions:
1. Even though just ten years ago we thought we knew the proper treatments of illness, we now know just how little we knew back then.
2. With these revolutionary breakthroughs in technology, virtually all illness and disease should be wiped out in America within the next ten years. We are on the verge of entering a phase where a person will never be sick. And if you do get sick, your doctor will be able to cure you of your illness in a matter of days. We have virtually reached the pinnacle of medical knowledge.
This calls for a drum roll, blaring trumpets and people dancing in the streets.
When I was a little kid growing up in Newark, I had a problem – sugar. I could never get enough. And the main components of my addiction were Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles, Twinkies, and Royal Crown Cola.
Since my parents never really gave me an allowance as a young boy, I had to get creative. So, I took my wagon, walked down the street, and knocked on doors, asking people if I could collect their soda bottles. What a score. Five cents for the big ones and two cents for the little ones.
But that sugar addiction had ramifications. Teeth cavities.
Some time ago, Mike Adams wrote and continues to write great pieces on greedy people intent on keeping the public nutritionally uneducated.
Unfortunately, the best place to start with this are the youngest members of society through the school lunch program.
Right now, 25 percent of all Americans are regularly taking sleeping pills, with $18 million being spent on prescription drugs and an additional over $600 million spent on over-the-counter pills. Not only do these figures emphasize the seriousness of the insomnia problem but how drug-oriented our society has become.
Is it that millions care so little about their health or is it that they are too lazy to become informed about how insomnia can be reversed and how insidious the detrimental effects of these drugs really are?
What’s bizarre is that the over-the-counter sleep aids have been studied and have been found to be no more effective than placebos.
The natural healing approach to curing health related issues is always in the direction of self-cleansing, self-repairing, and positive health. This philosophy maintains that even acute disease is a manifestation of the body’s efforts in the direction of self-cure.
Disease, or downgraded health, may be eliminated only by removing from the system the real cause and by raising the body’s general vitality so that its natural and inherent ability to sustain health is allowed to dominate.
So, a question arises: if all disease is a self-repairing effort aimed toward health, then why bother to treat disease at all? Why not just lie back and wait for our pneumonia, ulcer, heart disease, or arthritis to simply go away? The obvious answer, according to common sense, is that just ain’t gonna happen.
The general flow of life’s energies is in the direction of positive health. But, if that flow is hindered or obstructed in any way, the outcome stands a good chance
Right now, despite all of our technological and scientific advances, the world is inundated with violence.
Wars, murder, theft, terrorism, abortion, child and spousal abuse are rampant. Since 1945, more that 140 wars have been fought and in this country alone, an average of 16,000 people are murdered every year.
Despite what we try to do to curb this, our solutions fail. Perhaps we should address the problem according to the law of karma and view the problem in accordance with the way we callously and brutally slaughter innocent and defenseless animals.
Recently, there has been a big influx of high school graduates embarking upon a new four-year career at the University of Hawaii and obviously at colleges and universities throughout the world and this transition presents numerous new challenges to these kids.
Yes, college is a time to explore new beginnings, new horizons and new roads to finding success and fulfillment. We all know that the key to a successful college career includes doing well academically, developing a fulfilling social life, enjoying participating in intramural sports if athletically inclined and not a scholarship athlete, and above all, maintaining good health to support this active college lifestyle.
Unfortunately, and not just for college kids, the perception of what is “healthy” can vary from one person to another and can greatly affect their lives.
