Is Fighting Disease the Best Way For Good Health?

Doesn’t the term ‘fighting’ implicate resistance? Can good health come from resistance? According to Eckart Tolle, good health arises from acceptance, not resistance.

In his book, A New Earth, he talks about war as a mind set. To be at war with someone or something, you impersonalise the ‘enemy’, allowing for, even promoting, dysfunctional (as he calls it, insane) behaviour that is known as fighting.

Whether you are fighting a country, a person or a disease you end up strengthening it, the exact opposite of what you want to achieve. What you resist, in fact, persists. Some examples within the United States of America (and probably worldwide), include:

1. The war on drugs has resulted in an enormous increase in their use over the past couple of decades.

2. The war on crime has resulted in an increase of the prison population of over 200% in a couple of decades.

3. Cancer is on the rapid rise, despite the proclaimed ‘war’ against it.

4. The war on disease has resulted in medical treatment becoming the third leading cause of death, after heart and cancer, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.

So fighting, or war, clearly doesn’t work.

On the other hand, homeopathic treatment has a completely different view point on disease. It does not treat disease as an enemy. Instead, homeopathy treats your imbalance, which allowed the entry of disease. By restoring your natural balance, you are now in a position to cure yourself. Your immune system is able, once more, to function as it should, as it was designed to.

The war on disease is not only creating many more seriously ill people (and animals), it is also creating many new diseases.

Is it time for a radical change in how you view health? Perhaps it is long overdue.
