Errors in Health Care
Error # 8: The Loss of Our Earth Connections|
Often as health enthusiasts we seek out ways to restore or promote our health through the use of specific measures.
The most common among health seekers is through dietary measures and/or the use of nutriceutical agents. Others are through fasting, positive thinking, etc.
Most of the health problems we develop our through our loss of connection with the earth from which we came. Most of the solutions, therefore, must come from re-establishing those same connections. This cannot be accomplished merely by purchasing natural foods at the marketplace, by taking pills and various nostrums, through positive thinking or through fasting alone.
Our ancestors spent the greater part of every day in direct contact with the earth. Outside with their feet on the dirt, walking the beaches, treks through the forests, immersing ourselves in the lakes and oceans. Here we connected with the planetary forces that support and create life. No amount of health food store materials, health books, workouts at the gym, fasting or even natural foods alone can substitute for these potent forces which once surrounded us.
Today we live in the surroundings of man amidst a plethora of synthetic materials. The powerful influences of the plant are muted in our lives. Disease is the outcome.
Reconnecting with the forests, the oceans, the sun and the other cosmic forces out of which man evolved is an essential part of regaining our health and our balance. Not just occasionally, but on a regular basis. We are as fish out of water and we need to allow ourselves to be placed back into an environment that sustains us.
