Medicine is what is responsible with keeping us healthy when we are unable to. We have an unwavering belief that it will heal us and never harm us. A medical practitioner’s profession is noble and challenging, having to deal, not only with illness, but with the accompanying stress, that patients go through.
It is sadly the case that modern medicine nowadays, treats our health with a rather shallow outlook. We aren’t dealing with our core internal problems, but rather we are focused on treating the symptoms. For example, if my eyes are red and sore, I will go to the doctors and receive a certain amount of medicine to remove the soreness and redness. I get fixed, I go home and I resume on stressing my eyes, and soon I will be going to the doctor to ask for more. And he, of course will oblige. We are both busy individuals, he has many symptoms to treat and I have to go back to my stressful life.
Stress the Real Killer:
This means that we don’t think that stress is really that important or damaging to our health. It’s just a sign that we lead a busy and important life, right? Well this is where a mindset change needs to be drilled in. Ignoring growing scientific proof pointing to stress manifesting into various diseases and issues is a recipe for disaster. It is like slow, powerful poison, but only we are capable, and responsible for detoxifying our bodies through internal self healing, taking control of our stress factors.
Changing the Patient Care Approach:
We have established that stress is the most dangerous factor for our spiritual and physical health. And when stress finally gets to us and we start to have physical health issues, aches and pains and so on, we go to the doctor and ask him to fix us. We aren’t aware enough to understand our ailments, put it across to the doctors, allow a proper diagnosis, and patient enough to enter a slow yet long lasting healing process. All we need is temporary patch to move on. So we are as much at fault as the broken state in which modern medicine finds itself in.
Doctors aren’t trained well enough to understand the patient as a whole but just to look for symptoms and prescribe specific medicine. And if you think that you can just take a pill for stress and be fine, you are wrong, too. Why? Because you would, again, only treat the SYMPTOM of stress, but you would not eliminate the CAUSE of stress.
Leading a Holistic Lifestyle:
The cause of your stress is within you as well as outside of you. Your stressful job, your stressful outlook on it, your personal worries, your self esteem issues – the causes of stress are too many to be entirely listed, but you get the point.
If we can open our eyes and look at the science behind it, we can understand that we can heal ourselves and move forward with our personal evolution without popping in poison that our bodies struggle to cope up and eliminate.
