The medical establishment is a bit of an addict—one that gets its fix from being the authority on health. So what can happen when neither alternative nor conventional doctors have the answers? Denial. This denial may come in the form of mislabeling a condition instead of saying, 'I don’t know.' It may come in the form of prescribing drugs or [continue reading...]
Mystery illness is at an all-time high. With each new decade to come, the number of people suffering from autoimmune disorders and other chronic mystery illnesses will double or triple. It’s time to expand the definition of mystery illness, to wake up to the fact that millions of people need answers.
Limiting the definition of mystery illness to rare, acute diseases is not helpful. It tricks the public. It makes people think that the medical cases that stump doctors are minimal and affect only a minute portion of the population. Truth is, millions of people suffer from mystery illness.

To keep up with the changing times—to survive—we must learn to adapt.
Spirit calls our current era the Quickening. Never before has civilization changed at such a fast pace. Technology has revolutionized virtually everything about our lives. We live in a period of breathtaking wonder and opportunity. It’s also an era of danger.

Then the new attraction comes along, the old one fades, and we’re too distracted by the shiny new packaging to realize it contains the same misconceptions all over again. With each decade that goes by, we forget about the medical [continue reading...]
Food does not digest just from the physical process of food breakdown (a process scientific study hasn’t fully pieced together); there are also critical spiritual and metaphysical factors involved in digestion.
