I have had a long interest in natural therapies, remedies, supplements and health management. It goes back approximately 42 years. I don’t recall exactly when it started.
Back then it was perfectly acceptable for a doctor to suggest a vitamin supplement might be helpful without the launch of a massive investigation by some governing body such as a medical board or Government department. Doctors now have to be very careful what they suggest it seems.
I have had doctors suggest supplements and meditation and both have important places in one’s health management regime. Preventative medicine and health care needs to be taken a whole lot more seriously especially in any country that has any government funded health care programs. Preventative health care can go a long way to reducing costs of those health programs and thus save tax dollars.
In countries without government sponsored health and medical programs, the use of preventative measures are also exceedingly important. In such regions, such measures can most likely be utilised more easily. These save individuals’ costs later in life, prolong life, prolong productivity which is even more important in such locations as a complete lack of government sponsored health care often equates to third world locations. Even the USA has some government sponsored health programs.
So, back to my blog article title. I commented on a request for ideas on helping save a marriage after a major dispute. The dispute was rectified but the wife was not ‘feeling it’ anymore but wanted to save her relationship. I suggested Reiki as a way to help reset her mindset and as a possible way to support her mental processes with this whole situation. Of course, I was scoffed and laughed at. The group has rules about only discussing scientifically proven options in these sorts of contexts.
I did reply with an article discussing some of the science and then had to get on with other day to day life requirements. I also made the effort to ask in a couple of other groups for some good articles that I could add to the discussion in support of my Reiki suggestion. I have now got a good list of links to read through.
I thought I would go back to the group post where I suggested reiki and add some of these. Seems I’m no longer in that group. Oh well, their loss. Being in a different time zone to the main body of a social media group has issues sometimes and this was the case here.
The use of the internet, especially wifi devices, has caused people to be in need of instant responses. I don’t participate in that world at all. Another reason that added to the issue in that group in question.
It really is sad that humans have come so far but remain so narrow minded and difficult to get along with.
The next part to this blog article will be some information on the articles that people have kindly helped me gather.
Keep it simple, keep it real,
