Purpose Without Hate and Hurt

I was just telling a couple of ladies yesterday morning about my life when I was younger. I remember being in and out of doctor offices and hospitals. Always wondering why I was having panic attacks and feeling like I was going to black out constantly. I remember all of the brain scans, the dyes, the electrodes. I remember hoping the doctors would find something…anything, just to know what was going on with me. I was in such a bad place.  Nothing was ever found. I was constantly put on one medication or another. I felt helpless, hopeless. For years I searched for an answer.

Luckily a friend told me to go see a chiropractor. This woman was much more than just a chiropractor. She knew kinesiology and other alternative therapies. She put me in touch with some great people and as I started delving into those alternative therapies… my symptoms resolved.

I’ve learned a lot along the way, becoming a massage therapist and  holistic practitioner. I can look back now and appreciate the journey, though I never saw anything to appreciate while I was going through the actual event years ago.

Both my parents have passed away. It was hard watching them go thru all the rough times prior to their deaths. Dad was on about ten medications and mom twelve. The last year dad was alive, I noticed many dark places on his skin. He would scratch those places because they itched. I knew he was on so many meds and his liver couldn’t keep up trying to detox everything he was exposed to. Many times when that happens, the toxins just come out through the pores and I think that was happening with my dad.

I watched as my mother got diagnosed with lung cancer. Even though I didn’t like that my mother was taking all of those pharmaceuticals, I never knew what it could be doing to her body. I never knew that the statin drug, Zocor, that she was on, could cause adenocarcinoma if taken for long periods of time. I can’t tell you how many years she was on that drug. If given the choice, I’m sure my mother would have chosen high cholesterol over cancer. Mom has been gone ten years now and I still wonder how many people get cancer from being on long term cholesterol medications. I wonder how many people have other illnesses due to the overuse and mixed combinations of pharmaceuticals. I see how the immune system gets compromised with all of those meds.

I remember a friend of mine came to the holistic clinic I used to work at. She told us that she felt like she was losing her mind. She felt that if she had gone to a traditional doctor, she would have been diagnose with alzheimer’s. As it turned out, it was a side effect or sensitivity to an osteoporosis medication called FemHRT. We treated her for sensitivities and as we did, all of the symptoms she was having, including troubled thinking and memory loss, disappeared. She completely recovered.

I constantly wonder how many of today’s illnesses are due to pharmaceuticals. I’ve had to let go of a lot of hurt and hatred of pharmaceuticals and it’s been very tough. I realized the other day that the only person I’m hurting is myself. I know that no matter how I feel, what I say, or what I do… people will continue to take all of those pharmaceuticals. I know that it’s difficult to change your perspective of something you’ve been trusting and using for years.

I choose to inform people of what I’ve experienced in my lifetime from a love-based perspective. I can have a purpose without hate and hurt. I know some people will listen and others might think I’m a fool. In the end, it doesn’t really matter. I do hope that through my life, even if I can help change the perspective of one person and affect their life in a positive manner… my purpose will be fulfilled.

Blessings throughout the coming week
