DEFENSIVE BEHAVIOR & POOR HEALTH AUTO IMMUNE ILLNESS

Leave a comment

IS HOW WE SEE THE WORLD AROUND US A REFLECTION OF OUR OWN BIO TERRAIN?

My observation is that people who have an internal environment that is a welcoming home to pathogens – parasitic infections often view the world, their world, as a unsafe and threatening place. These people have weak immune systems and are often highly reactive. They very often want to impose their will on others in order to feel in control. Many do this so they can feel safe and protected. This feeling of being unsafe has become a vocal part of a large segment of those living in some democratic populations today. I am not going to speak for the rest of the world. Are these people who want to control everything the greater part of most social democracies today?  I don’t know, but sometimes it feels that way. These  people seem combative and fearful. They get a whole lot of media coverage. They are loud. They justify the argument for medications, and many of them probably are medicated. Considering their behavior, it is frightening to imagine how they would be without their meds.

DRUG FREE? NOT SO FAST…

What I have personally experienced in my own healing process has lead me to realize that a good percentage of people with a 9-5 schedule need Western Medical Protocol. Western Medicine, can help to suppress symptoms, at least for awhile. This enables people to hold it all together, to maintain the status quo. It is often damn hard to ride out feeling unwell when taking a Holistic Approach to healing.This is especially true if a person has a volatile health situation at hand. I have gained more compassion for people and their decisions, if they are their own decisions, to medicate their symptoms in order to function, and move on. All children, some informed and elderly have these decisions made for them, as do many others. At the present time an overly medicated society, and what it means for the future of the  world, is being played out in the worldwide daily news cycle. It is not pretty.

FEELING ATTACKED AND UNSAFE

Please consider this:  Poor health and serious illness is, or eventually becomes, a by- product of a weak immune system. Having an organ, such as a Gallbladder,  removed helps to open the door for a weakened response to pathogens. I use Gallbladder removal as an example because it is a very common surgery today. A subject onto itself. Anyway, with continued exposure to environmental and other toxins [the list is endless], a person is very apt to project their physical condition onto the outer world. Why? If a person does not feel safe in their own body it is hard to feel safe in the world. Not feeling safe has become  a way of thinking and being. For many, feeling unsafe composes the fabric of daily life. This is greatly due to the degradation of the environmental health of our planet.

WAR HAS SO MANY MEANINGS

Exposure to toxic substances is definitively displayed in the behavior of a growing number of  people who are directly exposed the repercussion of war. Chemical warfare and the use of depleted uranium [and many other chemical / toxic substances] has greatly contributed to the very disturbing behavior that we see among those that are barraged daily with these poisons. In our own country, the US Military are prime examples of this phenomenon. A growing number of military men and women unwittingly fall prey to depressed, anti social, suicidal and other violent behavior. At worst, their behavior is similar to that they are trained to defend against. Our military men and women, and their families deserve so much better. We all do.

A BOTTOM LINE HYPOTHESIS

The more inflamed and infected with slow burning, or not so slow burning pathogens a person is, the more they are apt to respond to the world in a defensive way. Defensiveness is a  response that is due to  and a reflection of of an unhealthy physical condition. Knee jerk defensiveness is the world I see being projected back to me in the present world news cycle. What makes some people feel safe, such as more armaments, more military, the idea of building walls and not bridges, does not make me feel more safe.

As a person who does feels unsafe at times, I know this is. at the root, a reflection of my inner terrain. From what I understand, the Mayan Civilization elders are said to believe that there are no safe places, there are only safe people. I am not sure exactly what that means, but it is something to ponder.

There are a number of ways to help heal in a world that is constantly being bombarded with contaminants in our air, water and earth. These are toxic substances, most of which we can not see. Presently, I am finding help from Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. There are a number of other protocols, that I know of and have been helped by. I have written about some of them in past blog posts. If you have the time, go back and look at what I have written. Hopefully, there may be some information there that may be of help to you.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
