Lesson 105 - The Medical Industry
As our diet changed from fresh fruits and vegetables to a diet that included more cooked foods, fats and artificial processed foods our health began to suffer the consequences. As people lost their vitality and became sicker the demand for ways in which to make people well again increased. At first small charitable groups sprang up to try and fill the need and start caring for all of these sick people. Most of these groups never made the connection between the poor foods being consumed and the ever more sick population. To make matters worse Louis Pasteur developed his famous "germ theory" which blamed "Germs" for all of the illness being experienced. Although later proven false, the stage was set for a medical industry based on cures instead of prevention. Soon a race ensued to develop “Miracle cures” in the form of drugs that could be prescribed to ill people. Doctors soon found out that these drugs could be highly profitable to their practices. As this notion proliferated the medical charities slowly became the for-profit medical “Industry”. About this time the prevention of illness and the real causes were no longer considered. The main focus became finding chemical mixtures which would provide quick relief of the symptoms. The drug industry grew large as pharmaceutical companies sprang up to meet this need. Medical schools now focused more on these medicinal cures and less on the patient’s long-term welfare. We are now at a point where true prevention is unknown to most people. We have placed our trust in these drug-cures as we have been brainwashed into believing that this is the only way to get well. So not only are we lacking nutrition and being filled with toxic food but we are also being filled with toxic and harmful chemicals in the form of drugs. But, it is not too late to return to our instincts again and find the ability of our body to heal itself. In the next lesson 106 – Self Healing Systems we will reintroduce you to your body’s repair network.
