Since the start of the internet, people able to look up various symptoms for themselves. They are able to check symptoms and actually diagnose their issues at the click of a mouse.
In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with using Google to look up issues with yourself. There are a lot of people who are retired nurses and physicians that write their own blogs & publish their own journals. There are scientific studies done and published.
People who go online and look up degenerative & genetic diseases are able to find support they need.
So while there’s obviously a lot of help that people are getting there’s just one problem with it all, people are not diagnosing themselves correctly. Those same people are not resorting to in depth research about how the body works or how these diseases work against the body.
There’s a lot of people taking holistic herbal supplements without thinking twice about interference of medications they are taking. They are not looking at negative impacts that essential oils or vital minerals can cause.
What people need to do is look for various platforms to study and start thinking like a real scientist.
This bothers me because people are resorting to Google alone to help them figure out what a problem is then they look up holistic remedies. These holistic remedies are actually just supplements that they think would be good in their diets and unfortunately, without knowledge to them they are falling victim to marketing tactics by companies.
On the other hand people are getting obsessive about issues they have. They think they have certain problems and only see what they want to see. These people end up ONLY telling their doctors about specific issues they want the doctor to agree with them on.
This problem with self diagnosis, started with the pharmaceutical companies advertising on television. Now these ads are online, in magazines and on mainstream radio.
This is what makes my job so great is that I’ve spent 14 years researching what works and what doesn’t. I’ve been on both extremes of the spectrum. Some people cannot afford to go see holistic physicians and some people don’t even know where to start looking. I am the middle woman. For the cost of my services this gives peace of mind to the person looking for alternative care.
Some people like taking their health care into their own hands. Like myself, I don’t rely on physicians because I’ve seen first hand how the medical system is totally out of control. God really knew what he was doing when he put everything on this planet for us to heal our bodies.
The double edge here is, while some say it’s totally wrong for a person to take their care into their own hands there are others who are being lazy about it. They scratch the surface with herbal supplementation and then when that doesn’t work they don’t bother trying to figure out more and they go right back to the medical system.
This is wrong. We should take our health into our own hands.
I have seen people die because they give their lives over to physicians and next thing you know mal practices are done or people go back to the same doctor routinely thinking their doctor knows best when the reality is these physicians are keeping you on band aids instead of finding things to help heal you.
Pharmaceuticals are band aids. From anti depressants to diabetes meds these prescriptions are a huge deal in the negative impacts of our health.
Doctors will tell you, “Well you need to figure out what out weighs what.” MMMMKAAYYYY well, anti depressants actually do the opposite of what they are intended to be used for. On top of that there is an alarming rate of suicide, birth defects and hormonal disruptions. Not to mention the increased rate of alcoholism and other drug use that is going on in secrecy by the patient causing even more chaos than the doctor knows about. I know what I am talking about because I have seen it for myself!
There is a crazy cycle going on where people rely on the health care system too much and they get sucked into dying. Then they do a half assed job of trying to care for themselves.
This is the reality:
People need to stop being lazy about their health and take their health into their own hands and start really doing something about it.
There is truly a small percentage that needs the health care system. Those who are suffering from rare genetic diseases and those who need emergency care.
Think of the load off the system when we all started growing our own medicines our own foods and spent more time out doors in the sunshine, clean air and actually did some hard work.
I know people have the best intentions when they get into holistic remedies, but the problem is they do not commit to all of the layers of healing themselves. They end up putting band aids on themselves instead of looking at alternative health like it should be.
These remedies need to be administered as layers and a foundation must be built first. Without this key component the holistic field looks like a joke.
When you use a holistic remedy don’t just look for a remedy look for the problem then look at what you have to build up from that. People are using holistic supplements as band aids just like the physicians do. They stack holistic remedies in their medicine cabinet and never touch them. Honestly looks like they idolize the supplements and I can see how it turns into a religion which shouldn’t be the case either!
Holistic remedies are a whole body and lifestyle change. Not one single remedy will help you and you will end up relying on that remedy for life just like the pharmaceuticals.
For instance depression, while there are plenty of things people can use for natural anti depressants, people only resort to using a supplement as a cure all. This is incorrect methodology to using holistic remedies.
For holistic remedies to work you MUST dedicate yourself to fixing the problem where it started. So for the case of depression, what’s going on? Is this a seasonal issue, past issue, long term issue, hormonal imbalances?
Some people refuse to get exercise, eat right, sleep right and even refuse to see their issue as something temporary. Which it really is.
The basis of this article is to shine light on the topic of self diagnosis. Please see that holistic remedies aren’t about searching for band aids it’s about finding the homeostasis of the body and then maintaining that.
Ground must be tilled in order for order.
