Medicine is a simple belief that man, through science, can impose his will upon the healing and restorative processes of the body.

In the United States of America, this belief has been forced upon us through laws.

Government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, enforce these laws.

These laws have made ‘outlaws’ of those who do not agree with this belief, and the courts have been known to enforce these laws upon those who disagree with them. Enforcement has included everything from fines to removing children from their parents.

There are those of us believe that man has no real control over the powers of the body. Others believe medicine has a ‘sledgehammer’ effect on the body, with unpredictable and unwanted ‘vibrations’ or secondary effects.

Certainly, the medical system does remarkable things when faced with emergencies.

For example, the medical system has good success with accidental injuries, knee replacements and stabilizing body functions after heart attacks and other health conditions.

This is where medicine, as a way of thinking, is at its finest.

Medicine, in practical application, does its best work in the short-term – in those urgent and emergent life-or-death situations.

After the bleeding is stopped, the joint has been installed and the surgical wound has been ‘repaired’ and closed, then they say “It’s in God’s hands, now.”

There are those of us who believe it is always in God’s hands, not just after the doctor has finished.

Yes, the training acquired and the skills developed by the medical doctors have great and positive affect on those in emergency. There is no argument about that.

Medicine has a place of real and true value, and that place where it functions best is the place where it should be restricted.

Yes, science can sometimes force a body’s response, but only for the short term, and never without consequences.

The Power That Made The Body is The Same Power That Heals The Body.

This way of thinking, this belief, is beyond the laws of man.

This way of thinking, this belief, is not in conflict with the medical way of thinking.

Medicine has its place, and plays an important role for people. Intervention from medicine can change and unstable emergency situation to a stable one where recovery and healing can take place.

Great for emergency situations, the medical way of thinking does not work well for chronic health conditions.

In those cases, healing often happens despite medicine’s best intentions and desire to intervene and control. Attempts to intervene and control, especially with drugs, nearly always have undesirable consequences.

The bone loss of osteopenia and osteoporosis is not a disease.

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are conditions that are created as a natural response to imbalances created in the body.

By removing the conditions that cause the response – removing calcium and other minerals from the storage in bone – the body can rebuild bone density and bone strength in its own, natural fashion.

No drugs are required to stop or reverse bone loss. To stop and reverse bone loss, we need to simply remove the imbalance, and then supply the necessary ingredients for a normal healthy body. Normal, healthy bone will be the result.

Exercise, clean water, good food.

Health is a way of thinking. And acting.
