Every year, there is a new fad diet, exercise craze and blockbuster drug. They often gain varying amounts of popularity, yet most eventually fall by the wayside. 200 years from now, it is unlikely that our great, great, great… grandchildren will be following the South Beach Diet, doing CrossFit or taking statin drugs. These health trends will be swallowed up by history.

Yet, there are absolute truths of health and healing that never change. They are foundational. The more we choose to build our lifestyle around these foundations, the more lasting results we will experience in our health and healing.
The cure for any disease seems to be quite mythical. We assume that medical research is sincerely searching for a cure for many diseases such as cancer. Yet, to this day, there has never been a drug that has cured anything. In fact, the use of the word cure has drastically declined over the last hundred years. Not only will you never find a cure for disease, you do not even want a cure for disease!
Ask yourself which you prefer: a cure or a healing? Is it better to fight and conquer disease or to support the innate healing of your body? In the vast majority of cases, disease is not a foreign invader. Rather, it is an abnormal response of your own body. Fighting disease is fighting your own body. It is counterproductive to real health.
You do not want a cure. You need healing. Healing is not a mystical concept. It is the natural state of the human body. Your body is designed to heal itself.
It’s no secret that our healthcare system is broken. More and more people are also realizing that ObamaCare is not the solution! It takes more than expanding access to our current broken sick care system. We must let go of these healthcare myths and develop a new healthcare system that is based on building real health and healing!
The American Healthcare system is filled with many inconsistencies. In the last article, we learned about these healthcare myths:
Myth #1: ObamaCare Will Save our Health Care System
Myth #2: Pharmaceutical Drugs Make You Healthy
Myth #3: Vaccination Provides Immunity
Myth #4: Low Fat Diet Foods Help You Lose Weight
Myth #5: Chiropractic Healthcare is Only for Bad Backs and Necks
In this article, we cover five more.
What do the American Health Care system and Unicorns have in common? They are both mythical creatures! Our health care system does little to care for our health. In fact, it is not a health care system, it is a sick care system! Here are several examples to help you understand how to move past disease management and into real healing.
As a physician, I have had to face the bleak realities of our broken health care system for many years. It is crippled by design. For my patients to move past managing illness and achieve true healing, they have to understand these health care myths and know what a real health care system actually looks like.
Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have continually failed us. There is a day coming when the great kingdom of medical science will be humbled. It will not likely come at the hand of God; however, I believe that the writing is already on the wall.
You are a natural born healer! What? You didn’t know that? Indeed, even before you breathed your first breath, you were designed with an amazing innate healing ability that allows your body to heal all disease! Yes, it’s true! Your body is fully equipped to heal everything from a cut on your hand to cancer in your colon and everything in between. That is, as long as there is no interference.
In fact, we have all witnessed this amazing healing in action on many occasions throughout are lives. Think about the last time you cut your finger. Maybe you were distracted by your computer screen as you reached across your desk for a piece of paper and then – suddenly – felt that all too familiar intense, burning pain of a paper cut. You snatched your hand back and looked at the paper you were reaching for to see what had bitten you but nothing was there except the faint red tinge of your blood. You look at your finger and see a tiny, little slice in your skin. You think: “Holy cow! How can such a tiny cut bring such sharp pain!” (Or maybe your words are a little more explicit!)
