A young man wrote to me yesterday. After seeing his Father in law die of cancer he had just had his eyes opened to the level of corporate corruption in the medical industries. I wrote him back my take on it. We can’t really blame the corporations. We have handed them over absolute power over our bodies because we don’t want to deal with our health ourselves. Power corrupts when it is put in the wrong place. And the only way to heal this is to reclaim our power by taking responsibility for our own health, for understanding our bodies and nutrition and doing what we know is right.
We made Doctors into Gods out of wishful thinking. Yes, if only they were Gods who understood everything about the human body, about our particular human body, and could wave a magic wand and make us whole. And sometimes they do. But we expect them to be able to do this every time and it just doesn’t work like that. And so we go to the alternative health sector where we find “natural” pills that promise to restore us to perfect health. But what if instead of putting our health in other people's hands we took responsibility for our own health today. We already know what we must do to be healthy. Let’s reclaim our responsibility! Let’s reclaim our power!
