My mom had colitis when I was a little girl. The doctors told her there was no cure. They gave her drugs and told her to only eat white bread and white rice with no fiber. She tried it awhile and it didn't help at all. She read of a health retreat in Escondido, CA and went there to try to get well. She lived on only water for 40 days to give her colon a rest. Then they gave her organic fruit and vegetable juices. Soon after that, they gave her organic salads and fruits.
She was so much better until she came home and ate a hot dog. She began bleeding badly again. She found out she couldn't eat any meat or dairy. It took many years to figure out what she could and couldn't eat but she found the more pure and organic food she ate, the better she felt.
She finally was feeling so well, she went to have a colonoscopy and her colon was completely healed and it has been for many years. She can eat anything now without bleeding and pain. She still loves to eat mostly organic food. She turned 85 years old yesterday and has no joint pain or arthritis!
She did what doctors still tell people with colitis can't be done. How come researchers aren't knocking at my mom's door asking her how she cured her colitis so doctors can begin telling others that they can indeed cure their colitis? The doctor who ran the retreat place my mom had attended had cured himself of pancreatic cancer by living on all raw juices. There are many stories of people getting well by following completely natural routes when doctors say there was no cure.
One of my friend's son was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and was very sick. They tried the drug route but it only made him sicker. He decided to go the natural route, even growing a lot of his own food out of his backyard, and feels SO much better! The main thing he is suffering from today is the side effects from the drugs they gave him to treat the Crohns.
There is no cure in a doctor's mind if they can't cure it with surgery, radiation and drugs. I am very thankful for all three. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for these three areas of expertise of doctors. I had no choice yet many diseases can be cured without these three things, yet no drug companies or research is being done for natural cures without drugs. Why not? It seems like it could be that there is no money in it. Natural means don't make money. Drugs make a lot of money. I hope this isn’t the reason.
Yes, there is a place for drugs but too many people want to take the easy way out, supposedly, and take a pill instead of giving up a lot of their way of life to be healed. People have been healed from allergies, asthma, cancers, high blood pressure, etc. by changing their diet and lifestyle. There are no side effects from doing it this way, whereas, there are many side effects from drugs.
Remember, doctors are only practicing medicine. They don't have all the answers. They have a lot of answers, but not all of them. Most drugs don't heal; they just cover the symptoms. God created us with an amazing immune system. The best thing you can do is learn what it takes to have a strong immune system: get off sugar and processed food, eat food the way God created, get enough sleep, fresh air and sunshine, plus exercise! Do the best you can to take care of this temple the Lord has blessed you with to live in all of the days of your life on this earth.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
