Health begins with our mindset. Health is not about spending money on healthcare and organic foods. It begins with choosing health and following where that wisdom takes us.
Health is our nature. A disease is the breakdown of health and is for the most part, is a byproduct of how we think, act, listen, and live our life. I learned this by living and teaching it for the past 52 years after I was given a dire diagnosis.
To stay healthy, we begin by a focus on thinking positive thoughts aligned with our health and happiness. Yes, happiness is a key component of health.
Especially through dark times, it is important to engage in self-love and self-care and stay positive to maintain wellness. Negativity is against us and life and negates possibilities instead of seeking and living them completely.
We are the ones responsible for our health and life. Somehow that has been missed with belief in modern medicine and too often we do not take that responsibility seriously.
We can prevent and/or can come back to health with action and self-awareness, knowledge, and wisdom. Drugs and surgery are for when it has gone too far and we need this help instead of popping pills for everything,
To live aligned with us and health is key. To learn natural ways that do not poison us and break us down more is important as well. Health is our nature, so the first question is how do we support our nature?
I was very sickly and in constant pain in several areas of my body for years by the age of fifteen. Our family doctor told me that I will not live long and will continue to suffer and break down quickly. When I tell this story people say that was terrible for the doctor to say to a teen or anyone. I am grateful every day as it is what inspired me to research and change.
I had a choice, to feel a victim and live out the path I was on and this diagnosis, or to wake up and choose again and be my own medicine and figure out how to change everything. I woke up and consciously chose life and health.
My father was chronically critically ill and dying at 43, and our family was doctor and drug dependent even though my mom read about and was raised with natural remedies. The focus was not healing, meaning becoming whole, it was more about feeling a little better and living another day or year.
That did not work for me. Already I did not like pharmaceuticals, both over the counter and prescription. I felt most of them made me feel worse and did not help the healing process.
When the doctor told me, I was following in my father’s footsteps health-wise, I decided to change that and forge my own path to health. I had no doubt this was possible because inside I knew that we did not have to be sick and in pain and I was willing to make any changes and learn what it would take to heal all the way.
It began with the mindset. I claimed perfect health and chose to live a long healthy life. Rejecting the doctor and his diagnosis was the first step.
Rejecting the lifestyle pattern of disease was next, and also releasing the belief that I was stuck in my family’s genetic patterns of sickness. I felt like I was living in an alternate reality of continuous deteriorating health and the mindset that reinforced that and I did not believe that was necessary.
Breaking family patterns was most important and began while living at home in the world of constant sickness and abundant drugs to keep people alive.
Drugs may be a way to keep people alive, but I felt they were also what killed people, and broke down the body and did not support regaining health.
I began researching nutrition and eating healthy whole food and stopped eating food with preservatives, canned veggies, and frozen entrees, and all of what is fake food to me.
I dressed for the weather unlike most teens, and also stayed away from people who were sick. I also stayed home when I was beginning to get sick to rest and build immunity and health, instead of waiting until I was so sick I was out for weeks, as I had been. I quickly began to rebuild my mind and body and spirit too.
Self-care did not cost me anything, it saved me stress and loss on all levels. It was a reclaiming of me and a daily choice to be my own advocate and caregiver.
When we tap into our innate intelligence aligned with health and our true nature of what supports us, we find great ways to live and be healthy.
Letting go of negativity is also key. Seeing life with a cup half full or overflowing is also important to help us reach the level of health that makes us whole and happy.
Hearing about how Jesus healed people inspired me and gave me hope and direction. I listened to the nuances of what was being taught in the readings in church and decided to learn how to discover and live these in my life too.
I have a calling to live and teach Be The Medicine. The information here is a result of reading thousands of books and study with over 100 teachers, healers, masters of spiritual traditions, and medical doctors and formal degrees in nutrition and psychology.
These many years of living it, and growing through my journey and offering healing support to others, and teaching it to people of all ages and walks of life have offered tremendous experience and great results in these many years.
When someone says that it is hard to make healthy changes in their life, I wonder how easy it is to be sick, in hospitals, in pain, and lose everything to medical costs, or loss of freedom because of living broken down in institutions, or even dying young? Our body tolerates a lot as it breaks down. Pay attention at earlier signs of problems. It’s good to nourish and nurture us and enjoy a healthier life. Janet StraightArrowBe The Medicine
TODAY. Fast forward fifty-two years from that dire diagnosis, I am still healthy and happy and employing wisdom and self-care. I did not have health insurance for over two decades during the years that many adults break down and are on a lot of drugs and getting tests and surgeries.
I took responsibility and watched and learned how to heal anything that seemed to be breaking down with nutrition and energy medicine and self-care and learned more and developed many ways we can Be The Medicine for ourselves.
I studied what breaks us down on every level so I can help myself and all people stop what hurts and live what helps us.
At 65, my Medicare physical revealed perfect levels in all areas of bloodwork including sugar and immunity, and my blood pressure was 120/80 too. I took no drugs or flu or pneumonia shots. The only thing that came up was that I was overweight and working on losing it.
A year later I am eating less, exercising more, and have abundant energy and health. Whole foods, some supplements a few times a week, and continued support for my mind and emotions to stay aware, loving and positive.
For generations, we have accepted that we all have to break down and get sick. That is not true. We are the owners and operators of this body which was designed for health. There is no need to accept breakdown. It takes awareness and effort to choose what supports us and let go of what tears us down on all levels.
Health saves us money and offers us an abundantly happy life. We begin with the choice, education, staying awake, paying attention, taking action, and learn and live to maintain a healthy body and life. We are worth it.
Natural healing is not weird, it is blessedly normal when we walk this walk of reality. Medicine can also be a gift to us, it is important to know how to choose and make choices all along the way.
Always in Love,
