But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matthew 9:22
Good Health Wednesday
After a number of years being treated for various medical conditions, I realized that maybe I did myself a disservice visiting doctors.
Doctors do have a role in society. Just like Luke (Book of Luke) served the disciples and helped spread the gospel about Jesus. Physicians serve to serve men. But physicians are not healers.
Having several family members now making regular visits to the doctors and specialists, it seems to me that each time they return home, they are given a new diagnosis. This is pretty much A-typical it seems in the African-American community.
It is almost like the medical establishment believe that we are expendable or at best, ideal candidates for clinical trials.
The more I begin to do research about various family members medical diagnosis, I am becoming more disheartened that the medical professionals don’t seem to have the patient well-being at hand. However, there are quite a number of doctors eager in making sure that they are part of the financial windfall of health insurance and Pharmaceutical companies.
I will be the first to tell anyone. Good health must first start with oneself.
You cannot and should you never rely on someone else to take care of your well-being.
When I was in my early twenties, you could never have convinced me that the lifestyle I was living would cause me sickness or an early death.
When you are young, you believe you are invincible and that anyone who was sickly was usually old or born with poor health.
Fast forward. And reality kicks in that when I had the opportunity on numerous occasions to practice good health habits. I didn’t. I can say that I had talked myself out of taking care of myself first.
Learning every day of the errors of my ways, I had to make a decision on what the rest of my life journey will look like.
Will it be miracles or medicine?
I’m choosing miracles!
