Are You An Incurable Disease?

Are you an incurable disease?

Some people seem to think they are.

"As a man thinketh, so is he." - a paraphrase of Proverbs 23:7

Here is the actual context if you are interested:

6  Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8  The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
9  Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
10  Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:
11  For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.
12  Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

(Old Testament | Proverbs 23:6 - 12)

So, seen in context, the man with the evil eye doesn't think about if what he is giving you to eat is good for you.  He is what he thinks about in is heart (his innermost desires).  Recognize the landmarks and wisdom of the fathers.  (Landmarks show correct courses to take, things to remember, or areas to be cautious of.)

I'm sure I'm not speaking in the ears of fools here.  The people reading this are those who are applying their hearts to instruction and searching for knowledge.

Now, back to "incurable" diseases.

Some people seem to wear "incurable" diseases like a badge of honor.  They come to identify who they are with the disease.  This is, of course, understandable.  After all if you are going to have some disease for the rest of your life, it is going to affect who you are and what you can do.

But does it have to be that way?  Don't we really look up to the people most who have a difficulty but overcome it and get on with their lives?  Like the guy with no legs that nevertheless leads a pretty normal life.

The key is in how you think about yourself.  See yourself as the one who is overcoming all challenges.

But if you have an "incurable disease" what can you do about it?

What does a doctor mean when he says a disease is incurable?

People think that the term incurable means the a disease cannot be cured.  But in our modern medical situations, it means that a drug or type of surgery has not been found that will make the disease hide.  Those are not the same two definitions at all.  Let me explain.

Our medical systems wants to create drug and surgery cures that will make all your troubles go away simply by spending the money and doing the procedure.  No permanent changes required.  This approach nearly always ignores that there were circumstances that caused the disease, and unless those circumstances are changed in peoples lives the diseases will continue to occur.

Are the doctors wrong when they tell you a disease is incurable?  Not necessarily.  They just haven't finished the thought.  The disease is incurable as long as you continue to take their drugs to cover up symptoms and live the same way you have been living.

Diseases have underlying causes.  Sometimes those underlying causes have underlying causes.  The really cool part is that the human body is such an amazing phenomenon that if you take away the underlying causes, in most cases, the body can return to health.

If you come to identify yourself with your disease or condition, then it becomes something that you don't want to change.  Thus you have a self fulfilling prophecy, you cannot be cured.

But that totally changes if you recognize that your condition is a result of the things you think, say, and do.  Then you are in control and can change your life.

I guess I'm a little like Captain Kirk.  I don't believe in the no win scenario.  I believe that if you give your body the good whole foods that it needs and good clean water and exercise and rest and have a positive attitude then it can cure itself of almost anything.

Even if you have a condition like an amputated arm or leg, you can optimize your situation with your words, thoughts and deeds.

Of course, there are situations that make full recovery, or complete health, more challenging.  But usually even these can be overcome.  The biggest challenges would be things like having some organ of your body surgically removed.  The removed organ is not then available to do it's share of the work in making the body healthy.  But often the miraculous human body can compensate if given the right resources and enough time.

Remember that it takes the body about seven years to replace every cell.  So if you can give your body an optimal environment for seven years that would allow your body to build optimum health.  This is why health has to be a lifestyle.

Your body knows how to heal itself, even if a doctor doesn't.  You can help it to do so by looking for the underlying causes and conditions and changing those conditions.  Beware: "genetics" is not an underlying cause.

The excuse for not choosing a healthy lifestyle that you hear most often is "genetics".  "It's genetic, I'm stuck with it."

"It runs in the family" can be turned into a great thing if you choose to make it so.  Choose the kind of lifestyle that will make "health" run in your family.

Remember that genes cause nothing unless they are put into an environment to be acted on.  Your body only uses the genes that the environment of the body calls upon it to use.  Your body is full of genes that can help heal and cure just about anything that can go wrong in the human body.  Your body is full of genes that express health and vigor.  Choose to activate those genes!  Deactivate the disease genes.

The most important thing we have learned about genes in the last couple of decades is that they don't do anything unless called upon to do something by the environment that the cells of the body find themselves in.  Put the cells of your body in a positive clean environment and activate all those health promoting genes.  See : "Genetics : What Do We Know?"

A couple of examples.

Diabetes is becoming an enormous problem for many people.  Most people already know that lifestyle can take care of type 2 diabetes, bust most people deny that lifestyle can help type 1 diabetics.  After all, "It's genetic" they say. It can be related to genetics in some cases, but often is not.   But the thing is, even type 1 diabetics are now beginning to learn that diet and exercise can make all the symptoms of diabetes go away.  Of course it only works for those people who actually try it.  See : This is not an easy thing to do, and changes and progress must be monitored carefully.  But it can be done over time.  Some people have done it.

COPD is another one of those "genetic" problems.  The biggest problem for them is that the mitochondria in their lungs wont grow back after it is damaged.  But low and behold, if they eat well and get good exercise, they stop damaging mitochondria and the mitochondria start to grow and thrive. (See : Exercise overcomes genetics for mitochondrial health.)

"Can't get better" is simply a self-fulfilling prophecy.  A healthy lifestyle will never work for the person who will not do it.  "I tried it for a week" is not a lifestyle change.  Even "I tried it for three months" is not a lifestyle change.  Lifestyle is for life.

Of course, to bring about health, it has to be a lifestyle that can actually fulfill that promise.  This web site is all about helping you to learn and understand that kind of a lifestyle.  Read as much as you can to get a complete understanding.

Don't identify yourself with your disease.  Conquer it.  Identify yourself as the conqueror!  Identify yourself as the person who has a great life and is helping other people to live great lives as well.  Think of yourself as the person you would like to be.

Have a great day!
