Phoenix Mission, Anyone?
Phoenix Mission, Anyone?
After several blogs on vitamins C. and D. we will now consider a different aspect of achieving great health in tough times. I had not intended to do this until much later in this series but since so many patients and one blog participant have asked about it I have decided to do it now. I wish to see if there are enough people reading this blog who are interested in testing the hypothesis that healing generally considered medically impossible is, in fact, possible after all. If there are, we may be able to test the hypothesis together. If that happens, I think we'll call it the Phoenix Mission.
If we prove the hypothesis I cannot think of a more powerful part of the process of decreasing one's dependence upon the increasingly problematic disease treatment system. Nor can I imagine a more powerful way to achieve great health in tough times.
In the past year I have had two experiences that have led me to create the hypothesis that there is the possibility of "impossible" healing. The first had to do with my spine. I have a birth defect in my lumbar spine. In the early 80s I had a neck injury in a motor vehicle accident. The combination caused a gradual deterioration in my spine until in the late '90s I could no longer split firewood (one of my favorite hobbies) and was having pain, numbness, tingling, and stiffness in my neck, left shoulder, and arm. I did not and do not know of any effective medical treatment and I didn't think there was enough chance of success with surgery that I was interested in pursuing it. I resigned myself to living with my disability and its worsening over time.
Then, about two years ago, Sara, my daughter in law, introduced me to a healing system that accesses the body's electrical system. I had been interested in the body's electrical system for years but never found a way to work directly with it. I began to work directly with it using some very interesting techniques, which I will describe in subsequent blogs. Gradually, the pain, numbness, tingling, and stiffness went away. I could hardly believe it. Something medically impossible was happening! I've practiced medicine for over 50 years; when I experience something medically impossible, I take notice. After several months I decided that I would cautiously try splitting wood again. I found that I could do it, not all day as in the past, but I can again swing a splitting maul.
The second experience was as amazing as the first and even more important to me. I'll tell you about that in the next blog.
