A week ago I was watching the Olympics with my girlfriend. With that came TV commercials. Seeing as I almost never watch TV its always interesting to see what’s being promoted these days.
A commercial came on advertising some pharmaceutical drug. I don’t recall the name of it, except the name of the disease it treated was called C.O.P.D., which stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
The commercial featured a man with an elephant (perhaps you’ve seen it). It seems amusing but then something happened that pissed me off.
They’re showing the man playing pool with an elephant in the background as they’re reading off the symptoms and what not. Then they go on to say something along the lines of…
“Nothing can be done to cure COPD. You can only manage your symptoms.”
I just looked it up on PubMed and it says basically the same thing. And I quote:
“There is no cure for COPD. However, there are many things you can do to relieve symptoms and keep the disease from getting worse.”
Really, our bodies have no hope of regenerating themselves?
I understand that doctors believe that you can’t cure so many diseases. But I’m not a doctor so I guess I don’t know any better…
This is just my opinion. But I firmly believe you can cure 99.9% of anything you come across.
If I was diagnosed with cancer tomorrow I would not be devastated. It would barely register as a blip on my mental screen except to become something I’d need to deal with.
With my knowledge of health, nutrition, mindset, and energy I would be absolutely sure I could take care of it.
100%, No Doubt In My Mind
How about you?
After all, do you know what the greatest determinate of survival from cancer, regardless of taking conventional or alternative treatments? It’s that the person firmly believed what they were doing would work.
Of course I didn’t always have this knowledge nor belief. Losing my mother to breast cancer helped to spur me on for sure.
But here they are in this commercial and online telling you you can’t do anything about it except to manage your symptoms. (Even worse in the commercial too because it was classic hypnotic programming too). I call bullshit. What a defeatist attitude that is.
I’ve heard too many miraculous stories. I’ve seen some unbelievable things with my own eyes. People curing the so-called “incurable”. People having tumors one day and not the next. Stage 4 Cancer gone.
That old paradigm is failing. Are you going to let them take you down while it still exists?
Sure some people may call this conspiracy stuff but some people are blind to what is going on. A pharmaceutical company’s main drive is profits. Its not helping people. I think most would agree with that. And what’s better than a high priced drug that a person needs to be stuck on for the rest of their life?
I’ll tell you what’s better for them. A high priced drug that a person needs to be stuck on for the rest of their life, that causes symptoms that then need to be managed with other drugs.
And how can this be insured? Make sure people believe there is no way to cure yourself. Belief is strong. When you believe something is true you won’t look at any information outside that belief, and often automatically disregard anything that contradicts it. (Yes, I’m guilty of this too. We all are.)
Don’t fall into this paradigm. Step outside and take control of your own life.
(By the way if you want a great place to start then check out 101 Simple Steps to Radiant Health. It costs less then a pharmaceutical drug, and yet the knowledge will last a lifetime.)
I know that this article has turned into a rant. For many people I’m preaching to the choir. If you agree please spread it around. Like it on Facebook, tweet it, etc with those new buttons on the side. Share it with your friends and family.
The sad fact is that if you’re not in agreement then the only one that can help you with chronic disease is your doctor. And I wouldn’t want a drug-pusher as my only friend in that case.
(Although it may sound like I’m knocking doctors I would certainly want the best one if I got into a bloody car crash and needed an appendage re-attached. I just think that many are in areas where they may not be offering the best advice, and this is an over-generalization of doctors in the whole. There are great ones out there that would agree with me whole-heartedly on this article.)
I’ve witnessed people come and go with cancer. I’m using cancer a lot here because its so common and is also sometimes deadly. I have knowledge to help. There are many others that do too. But if they don’t know of that possibility, there is no possibility for them.
I want to help. I also know from past-experience you can’t force someone to believe this, or to do the steps necessary. You can only help if they allow it.
If you’re reading it and thinking that I’m wrong let me just ask you this. Why not believe this?
Even if I’m wrong with your disease or in your case (which I doubt I am), it’s far more empowering to have this belief.
So if this article helps just one person become more proactive in taking charge of their own health, and to “cure what ails them” then it was worth writing it.
