While honouring the sad passing of a special lady, many questions fill my mind. Mourning the loss of a loved one is never easy. Why? Why? Why? Especially when the person was vibrant, seemingly healthy and commited to leading a life of awareness, exercise and good food. It just does not make sense!
Daily people are touched by the loss of someone close due to cancer. Is medicine really doing all it can? We have been told that a cure for cancer is just around the corner. A long corner as this promise has been repeated many times over the past 40 years.
Is the solution early detection? Is it in the type of treatment? Is it prevention? Most likely all of these. Yet we can never turn back the clock to make changes that could affect the outcome. Should I not have done this? Should I have tried natural alternatives more intensely? Should I have combined medical treatment with other treatments? We can’t go back. So how do we know what is best?
Asking questions can be painful, seeking to find blame. The only questions that are beneficial are those that provide answers and guidance to those of us who remain. Ultimately, any decision regarding your health is your decision. Surrounding yourself with those who care about you but have knowledge in health care. People, experts, who can provide unbiased information to enable you to make an informed decision as to what is right for you!
As an example: a gentleman who had received conventional cancer treatment decided to spend a few weeks at a well-known clinic in Victoria. He was commited to eating a healthy diet, detoxifying from chemical treatments and recovering – physically, mentally and emotionally. The clinic does exceptional work with wonderful results – for some. Unfortunately, in this instance the critical difference was that the cancer had spread to the lungs where research is finding that a raw food diet is not suitable. This highlights the importance of truly individualised health care. Each case is unique.
While those who have passed on cannot be brought back, the least we can do is to learn from and benefit from their experiences. We are given one chance at life. Let us honour our body and give it the respect and love it deserves.
Eat well. Exercise adequately. Get quality and sufficient sleep. Learn to relax. Meditate. Share love. Reduce, eliminate and avoid toxins. Take time to enjoy sunshine on your skin. Listen to the birds.
In Honour of Life. Dagmar
