I found this awesome website called: www.doctoryourself.com
It is about this doctor called Dr.Saul. He advocates that we need to find natural ways of healing ourselves. He advocates that we have all been sold to by doctors and large pharmaceutical companies to keep them making more money. He has a valid point and it got me thinking….
So, we are told over and over again that alternative medicine is a load of rubbish and that it couldn’t possibly work. We get told by our Gynaecologist that Endometriosis is incurable and that we are unlikely to be able to have babies. We need to go on this or that drug, which we have to pay for and then every year and a half or so, we need to have a Laparoscopy to remove the excess Endometriosis. Think about it. The Gynaecologists make thousands of dollars for each laparoscopy they perform! They are being paid by doing these operations. They are given a list of recommended drugs by pharmaceutical companies to use for Endometriosis. They believe or don’t know any better than suggest these drugs as hey< they have been tested by the “medical profession” and therefore must be good for their patients. Meantime, they cause all these extra side-effects on our bodies which guess what? Means MORE drugs and medication for us to now go out and buy. Brilliant, more money for the pharmaceutical companies! We are told all this stuff and it is reinforced to us all the time that the western medicine must be better as it is researched and tested. Half the time they test it on mice, rats and poor defenceless monkeys! The alternative methods have been used for far longer than western medicine and with much better results but for some reason we still feel western medicine is better?
Why is that? We have been sold to….. Think about it. Every time you watch TV and watch the advertising, there is someone with a headache promoting a quicker way to get rid of your headache. There is likely someone with a solution for all sorts of minor ailments: digestion, headache, heartburn, indigestion, hay fever…. I am sure you know the ads.
The problem is that these “minor ailments” are in fact signals from our body to tell us that a larger organ is in fact under threat. We go to the pharmacy and take the tablet that gets rid of our headache or heartburn or whatever it is and then……years later we are dealing with a major pain or problem with one of our organs and we are surprised by this!
I contacted a few Endometriosis organisations a few weeks ago to see if they would help get the word out about my blog. They all retorted that they couldn’t possibly support a site called “cure” endometriosis, as in their mind there was no cure as it hadn’t been “medically and scientifically tested”. So, even though we have plenty of people out there who have cured themselves from Endometriosis, usually through natural methods, we can’t hold them in any regard because they were not medically tested? Huh? So, in other words unless they are medically and scientifically cured with drugs and invasive surgery there is no cure? That makes sense….. not!
I find myself struggling with this quite often as many of us have been down the path of western medicine and only come out of it much much worse. I just wish we could someone get the word out louder and stronger so we can help more women with Endometriosis.
Maybe we associate everything with products and price. Maybe if we put alternative medicine in a bottle, put a fancy label on it and charged it at $300.00 per bottle people would place more value on it. Maybe if it had some strange ingredients in it that we could then sell it to doctors and Gynaecologists, it would get out there in the mainstream of “Medically proven research” and then we could all turn around afterwards and say: Nah, nah it was actually a completely natural product and you just didn’t realise and SEE it does work! Unfortunately, there is a catch with this idea- well a number of catches. The biggest one is that, there is NO cure in a bottle for any disease or condition. It is a holistic approach to healing and it includes everything from diet, lifestyle and our emotional state. Unfortunately, the methods used by doctor’s triggers the worst in all of these. I know my Gynaecologist dramatically changed my life decisions by simple statements that he used: Get married young and have children as soon as you can; Don’t work in hospitality as it will make you sick and sore; We need to operate every year and half to make sure the Endometriosis doesn’t spread too far. Can you see the feelings associated with all these statements? Wow! What an effect that can have on a young mind of 16 is scary!
The strange thing is that because Endometriosis affects so many of us, it is more important that we find a real way to heal ourselves. Using western techniques simply puts the condition under a carpet and slows the growth but it doesn’t actually get rid of it. We are only dealing with SYMPTOMS and not the root cause of the condition.
I think we should follow what Dr Saul says and shout out loud that we don’t want Laparoscopies or drugs anymore! Take them and throw them in a lake! We want a real cure for endometriosis! Stop giving us these drugs that just make us worse!
