Here we are in the doorway of 2021. What a year it has been; and despite the difficulty and hard times, let us learn from all we have seen and heard this year. There have been and still are, difficult times for us ahead; but there have also been some amazingly creative solutions that have risen to the surface that have been a source of encouragement to many. The creative solutions to folks feeding each other as well as communities; the creative ways small businesses and especially restaurants have continued forward and overcome financial and restrictive obstacles; the creative ways people have raised money and people have given of themselves to help others through hard times; and even the creative ways that music and art have come to us to lift us above all this.
We are in a new day. We have not been this way before in the United States, where the American dream has always been within reach, with hard work and the traditions of our heritage to give us a pattern to follow. We are in a time where our traditions are changing of necessity, but our desire to be free and think outside of the box are still able to soar.
The same is happening when it comes to our health. The big question currently seems to be to vaccinate or not to vaccinate. There are pros and cons to this issue. For the most scientific data on the realty of vaccines, I would refer you to a website at www.naturalnews.com and their health section. There are reports there from many doctors, researchers and even the legal ramifications from Robert Kennedy Jr that you can read to help you form your own opinions.
There are risks involved in a fast paced introduction of new vaccine that has not had the full test of time before presentation to the public. That said, some of those risks have to be weighed for people who have compromised immune systems and essential people risking exposure daily to provide needed services to all of us. Certainly they have the option to decide for themselves, and we all need to respect their personal choices. I would just want each of us to have the ability to hear ALL the information in order to make our decisions informed. There are other treatments that have been used in lieu of the wait period for vaccines, that have saved and improved the outcome of the Covid virus. These treatments have been discovered over the course of these few months and may be just as viable for a generally healthy person.
We also, need to understand that as healthcare providers, we have known for many years that the mutation of bacteria, viruses and fungi would come to a place in time where superbugs would develop that would be difficult to control and even provide immunity from them by traditional methods. We have known that building up our own personal immune systems would become the greatest step toward sustaining the human organism. This without the necessity of lockdowns and limitations of human interaction.
I cannot stress enough, the need to learn how your body works and what it needs to sustain great health at any age. It is too much to go into in this short blog; but I am able to help any of you individually or in a video class who would like to pursue this for yourselves, your families and loved ones. That knowledge, includes foods to eat, where to get them, how to keep your home toxin free, as well as what supplements might help, what telltale signs to watch for in your own health before its too late and numerous other topics. We at Healing Leaves Center of here for you.
Hope springs eternal and let me end by saying that this would not be the first time that Americans have faced health crises and risen to the occasion to find solutions. We are more resilient than we think, especially if we work together. Encourage one another, form neighborhood and community groups that can divide the labor to find the resources you all need. Lighten the load and feel the stress fall away as you face challenges with humor and camaraderie. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.
Be well and may you find the answer to every question you have.
