When I was suffering with depression, I had a “friend” who chided me because I was taking a medication to help balance the serotonin levels in my brain so my body could function better and with less stress. She believed that only “natural” (drug-free) healing was of God and she discredited and frowned upon any dependence upon a drug to rebalance the human body. Needless to say, she and I are no longer friends.
God gives us all things freely to enjoy. So, whether it is medicine, surgery, physical therapy, diet, exercise, vitamins/supplements, flower essence, meditation, energy work, aromatherapy, or some ancient modality, everything we do to help our bodies recover is part of our routine for staying healthy. Trust that the end result is a return to health.
So, if you are in a position where your body is manifesting poor health, ask yourself what is causing the illness. Be sure to seek the gift in whatever discomfort your body is manifesting. It is having this response to something that is out of alignment. Then, take action. If you need to forgive someone (even yourself), do that. If you need to stop being around a particular person or situation, set your boundaries. If you need medical attention, call your doctor. If you feel a massage would help, get one! If you need energetic healing or prayer, ask for it. If you need a soul retrieval session, call Janice Mickle.
In holistic treatment there is no “us” and “them,” right or wrong, good or bad. All components can be integrated, and all things can work together for good. Your body is yours to manage. Do whatever you think is best for it, and know that you are loved!
