There are thousands of great healing herbs and foods that can help people to get better and change their lives. Yet it all boils down to that one little word “Change” and many times that one little word gets in the way of healing.
Once there was a man who had diarrhea most of his life, and after going to a herbalist found out that he did not get along with milk, so he started using soy milk and rice milk. For the first time in almost 30 years he had normal bowel movements, things changed and he was feeling good.
He was also told he did not get along with wheat and was taken off wheat for 6 weeks and all his terrible arthritis pain disappeared. All his swollen joints disappeared and he was feeling wonderful. But his wife was not happy, she was stanched in the fact that they had been eating wheat toast all their lives and they were not going to change now. So she refused to buy wheat free bread for their toast. Thus the man when back to having terrible joint pain and swelling… and suffered to the last day of his life.
It’s interesting how that one little word “Change” can be so powerful!
Once there was a mother with a child who suffered from ADD… and she visited an herbalist to help her son. She wanted some herbs and supplements to calm him child down and keep him quiet. The mother was told that all the junk food, fast food, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, food additives, and processed food they were eating were causing her son’s problem… and recommended that they start eating health with lots of organic fruits, veggies, and whole foods… that were chemical and additive free.
Within one month her child was calm, focused, and able to sit and work on projects and his grades improved drastically. His mother was so pleased… yet within two months she started buying the same old fast food, junk food, and all the processed foods again and her child started having the same symptoms of ADD. Yet she refused to go back to eating healthy, even thou she had taken him to lots of doctors to find drugs to control her sons challenge.
That one little word “Change” can be so powerful!
It’s amazing how we can have all the answers right in front of us for a healthy life… but are not willing to “Change”.
But for those of us who are willing to “Change” life can be so great!
