Medicine – science, nature or both?

Thymus vulgaris

Thymus vulgaris

Over the years I have seen how closely body and mind works together; If you can balance one part, the other usually follows, sometimes followed by “miraculous healing”. We are biology and as such, we are part of a whole. If we could not heal “miraculously”, we would not exist as a species today, we would be extinct. Sometimes people are to die, it is the way of nature, and no medicine in the world will keep them alive, and sometimes my work is about helping people to die in peace. It may be frustrating to my sensibilities as a healer, but it is also an acceptance of the way of nature – a hard learned lesson for somebody like me who likes to heal…

Every tiniest thing in the Universe is under constant change; like bacteria: With the introduction of penicillin it was believed that bacteria would now be controlled once and for all, never to raise their ugly heads again, but one thing was overlooked; the fact that everything strives for survival, bacteria included. By using antibiotics indiscriminately for every little thing, we have created a new problem; antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The “oh-so-powerful” antibiotics came to a standstill; at best, they do nothing, at worst they diminish the immune-system, leaving body unprotected against the bacteria we all carry around and these bacteria turn on us and devour us. I have seen people  that have been on broad-spectra antibiotics of different kinds for weeks and months on end. Sometimes intravenously…Did it help? No.

laboratory containersI want to make it clear here, that I am not attacking anybody; neither doctors, scientists or the medical system. We all do the best we can but nature will not be controlled and sometimes off-beat healing methods can work really well. I am not a doctor, but I know a lot of doctors and work side by side with a few of them. They have their limits, as do I, or any kind of healer. But if we work together we can find solutions. Nature is coming into play again, and natural antibiotics such as essential oils are being found to kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria quite successfully. The healing power of nature can be harnessed and used, but it can not be recreated in a laboratory.
