One note… this was Picasso’s painting when he was 16 years old. And before I go on with the subject at hand (which is why I chose the above painting in the first place), this next painting was when he was 15 years old. He had nowhere else to go but …well…Picasso.
I was diagnosed with an ailment last week that has me a bit concerned. It actually is a disorder, that if not treated it will continue to get worse and ultimately attack my total health, both mentally and physically, they said. The doctors prescribed several different medicines that will make me healthy again. The thing is, I don’t like, or I haven’t heard wonderful things about these particular meds. But I did find a medicine that I think I like better. It doesn’t do the things the ones prescribed do but I think if I take the ones I like, I will get along. I called the dr. and told him that I found ones that I liked better. He said , under any circumstances, they would not work. I don’t buy it. So, I think I’ll stick with my own treatment.
You are probably thinking at this point – “has she totally fallen off her tractor!”
I really wasn’t diagnosed with anything last week. But wouldn’t you think I was bonkerly crazy if I had said that and meant it?
Ok….Let me reword the above statement.
I was diagnosed with an ailment last week that has me a bit concerned (anything chronic). It actually is a disorder, that if not treated it will continue to get worse and ultimately attack my total health, both mentally and physically, they said. The doctors prescribed the foods that will make me healthy again. The thing is, I don’t like, or I haven’t heard wonderful things about these foods (fresh veggies, protein, fruit and whole grains) that are good for me. They are boring and don’t taste yummy. But I DID find foods that I think I like better (sugar, processed foods, colas). My food wont heal me like the ones prescribed will, but I think if I take the ones I like, I will get along. I called the dr. and told him that I found foods that I like better. He said those, under any circumstances, they would not work. I don’t buy it. So, I think I’ll stick with my own treatment. Which is called (for lack of a more effective word) poison.
The cycle of chronic illness continues to go ’round and ’round.
Really? Do we really sound and act that nuts? It is our health for goodness sake. It is our mind. It is our body. Let me take this one step further….It is our ONE mind. It is our ONE body.
I think we all have these nutty marbles rollin’ around in our heads. Don’t you?
Can we, maybe, try to think of our food as the medicine needed to stay far, far away from chemical manufactured medicine? SOOOOOOOOOOOO many illnesses can be relieved and avoided if we would only take the best “medicine”. Try thinking about it from another perspective and see if it has an impact. It is hard, HARD. But with practice, it can have huge benefits.
I seriously pray that God will give me the wisdom to know better and give me the strength to resist temptation and give me the patience to do what it takes to eat properly. For my health and those that are dear to me.
I hope that you don’t think this preachy….I am as guilty as the next guy. It just is really serious business. And I am really concerned about my own health, my children’s and their children’s. Our food, and therefore, our health, is in dire jeopardy.
One response to “Diagnosis: Nuts”
Karen, I truely believe you have been put in my life for a reason.
A great big THANKS! for everything you share. And as far as sounding ‘preachy’ I don’t think so, it is simple education! Thanks again! I still want to come and retreat there. Robin
