A woman, who was diagnosed with scleroderma contacted me. She had been told that there was nothing to 'cure' her disease, except taking medication to reduce the pain, but the gradual disfigurement and early death was inevitable. She found my article on healing lupus and thought that if lupus, which had no known 'cure' could be healed maybe scleroderma could be healed as well. Of course, she is right.
Scleroderma is not the 'disease.' It is a "symptom" - an outward "signal" - of a damaged inner emotional, spiritual and physical terrain that simply is too polluted, toxic, and acidic! A compromised, toxic, acidic inner terrain is a breeding ground for all kinds of "malfunctions" to proliferate.
Western Scientists have recently acknowledged what Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has known for centuries that Scleroderma and all body malfunctions can be reversed with natural means. They have acknowledged that it is our modern lifestyle that is actively causing these diseases-and that-Western Medicine's theory and doctrines fail to recognize that diseases are not separate from the person. In fact every disease can be more accurately called an expression of the patient's lifestyle, beliefs, and energies. Cancer is not a tumor, for example: it is a systemic disorder that can only truly be healed by helping to support the body, not by attacking it with chemical bombs or knives. The tumor is merely one physical expression of the systemic disorder, and simply removing the tumor does nothing to cure the disease. The body is designed to heal itself-given it has the proper care-nutrition, herbal supplements, spiritual and emotional well-being.
Using a combination of healthy mind (psyche), body, spirit (spiritual) lifestyle you can prevent or heal any and all body malfunctions. After 25 years working with hundreds of people with every body malfunction imaginable, I came to know no matter how dire their circumstance, if the person is willing to do the work-mind, body, spirit-anything can be healed. The word, 'incurable,' only means the condition cannot be cured by 'outer' methods and that the person must GO WITHIN to effect the healing.
The body is designed to heal itself provided it has the proper support to do its job. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on a concept of balanced qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy, that is believed to flow throughout the body. Qi is proposed to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Disease is proposed to result from the flow of qi being disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Among the components of TCM are herbal and nutritional therapy, restorative physical exercises, meditation, acupuncture, and remedial massage.
Holistic, Metaphysical, Energy or Mind, Body, Spirit healing has existed since the beginning of time amid religious beliefs and practices, along with the mystery, superstition, fear, and misunderstanding. Holistic Healing is now becoming recognized regardless of what anyone chooses to believe or think. Ask almost anyone about their spiritual well-being and they will probably tell you, "Yeah, I am a spiritual person, I go to church frequently." Therein, the confusion arises out of the association of healing with religion. The majority of people, including religious leaders, do not understand the difference.
Definition: "HEAL" 1. To restore to health or soundness, 2. To set right, repair, 3. To restore a person to spiritual wholeness, 4. To become whole and sound, to return to health. Definition: "SPIRIT" 1. The vital principle or animating force within living beings, Incorporeal consciousness. There are about twelve more elaborations mostly to do with various religious implications.
Definition: "RELIGION" 1. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe, 2. A set of beliefs, values and practices based on the teachings of a religious doctrine.
Thus, based on Western Medicine's common interpretations of how things 'ARE', many paradoxes are created. The resultant effect is confusion and un-wellness. The Truth, as Carl Jung and others have carefully worded in their writing, is this: Every Thing in the universe is Energy and Consciousness. How anyone thinks or feels about that Fact cannot change it.
The purpose of All religions is the recognition that humans have a part of themselves that is not physical and there is a need to explore and experience this aspect of themselves. Part of the intent is to discover one's purpose and to live in the best way possible. Another part of that goal also includes the attainment of Truth and Spiritual Wellness. However, the result of religious teachings with regard to our Spiritual health has been an abysmal failure. If the most important aspect of our being is our Spiritual self, and it has been neglected, it is a miracle we have existed this long.
Your diet is one of the major influences on your scleroderma symptoms. How can diet be a big impact on one's body?
A metaphor for what's happening inside your body is from a scientific view. Picture your body as a car that was designed to function on all-natural, organic, fuel. The car is a living, breathing machine not unlike the human body. For 12 million years, this car has been using fuel such as:
That's the fuel the metaphorical car thrived on. More significantly, that's the kind of stuff it was built on, natural raw materials. Then, precipitously, after 12,000,000 years-that car switches over to, for the last 100 years, a new modern mixture of:
• Wheat-highly acidic hybrid grass
• Fats & oils
• Pharmaceutical drugs
• Chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives
That is like putting diesel fuel into the tank of a car that functions on gasoline and expect it to function properly. What do you think would happen to the mechanics of the car? That's right: It breaks down!
If you keep pouring in fuels that your body can not process properly-eventually the mechanics start experiencing serious difficulties.
Some people develop tumors. Other people have Cholesterol levels that are through the roof. Your diet and lifestyle is causing the condition commonly known as Scleroderma. This condition is simply a 'symptom' of a very fundamental and dangerous imbalance within your body. Scleroderma is simply the initial way it is manifesting itself in your body. Scleroderma is truly the least of your worries.
If you really think about that-it means that-Scleroderma is not a Disease, But A Symptom of Your True Disease Inside Your Body: The Root Cause-Emotional, spiritual and nutritional imbalance.
These pollutants, toxic and acidic wastes collect in all parts of the body and start tearing the body's processes down. That's what scientists have found. Scleroderma does not just happen, it is the direct result of a breakdown inside your emotional, spiritual and nutritional system.
When millions of people around the world start experiencing the same problems, something is seriously wrong. Something is unbalanced. And it's never a 'disease.' It is a dis-ease of mind, body and spirit.
What scientists have now discovered is... that the "Root Cause" of Scleroderma is the modern lifestyle, causing your body to become diseased by poor nutrition, lack of emotional and spiritual nutrition. Because our body is a very delicately balanced organism, whatever you lack or ingest can radically destroy that delicate balance.
Therefore, any physical malfunction is merely a warning sign of a breakdown in your emotional, spiritual and physical system due to your lifestyle means-this is when you develop "Scleroderma" And if you do not stop the attacks on your emotional, spiritual and physical system, you develop even more serious conditions and eventually truly life-threatening health problems.
The radical change in diet and lifestyle in the last 100 years has actually transformed your body into a toxic wasteland. Leading scientist, Dr Robert O. Young states, "There is only One Sickness and One Disease, and this one 'sickness' is the over-acidification of the body due primarily to an inverted way of living, thinking, and eating... there can therefore be only one remedy and treatment, and that is to alkalize the body and break the cycle of imbalance, thus allowing us to experience the energy, vitality and true health we're all meant to have." Once these acids stop overflowing your body, your body gets a rest from constantly working to absorb and neutralize them. When you "cleanse" the body from the overflow of acids, it starts to heal and rebuild itself. It starts to recover, slowly but surely.
Once you focus on the 'Root Cause' of your Scleroderma-you instantly start seeing Scleroderma from a different perspective-instead of "Medication" and "treating the symptoms," you start thinking about "Health" and "Healing" the cause.
The simple and unacknowledged truth about Scleroderma--and all other modern diseases - is that it is more important to attend to what you put inside your mind, body, and spirit, than to have to deal with the symptoms that drugs can fight from the outside.
The solution to all of this is to get back into your natural state of vibrant health... by "cleansing" yourself from the inside, physically, mentally and spiritually allowing your system to rest and heal itself by stopping once and for all the incessant attacks on your inner terrain.
For every disease, your immune system needs to ward off it immediately starts fighting it. Your body can restore every wound, diseased organ or damaged cell that comes its way-but it cannot do that if you keep polluting it with toxic fuel, toxic thinking and toxic lifestyle.
