If You Say I Don’t Need My Gallbladder, Go On And Take It
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie
I can confirm, through my experiences, that folks are evangelistic about medicine. Particularly, they swear by western doctor’s advice, diagnoses, and live by their prognoses. The sad thing about it, is that most often than not, they don’t do any research or at least challenge what the doctor recommends. Some, don’t even ask questions.
It seems that they give doctors the same or more power, than they give to God. – Kevy Michaels
Those who are ‘moved by the spirit’ or sincerely aim to get closer to God at least do some research in the holy books about their religion. Though this is more than what they tend do for western medicine, I must give credit for that little act. The problem is, that even with doing spiritual research, they tend to search only for the opinions that we have already formed. The Bible is the perfect tool for that, for it tends to support conflicting opinions, depending on which version, chapter, and whether it’s Old or New Testament.
But when researching the bible, many do not look at other spiritual perspectives, not even within a given religion, only the perspective that they support.
Now, I know people who will research YouTube, on Google, and the like when needing information on home repair, relocation, recipes, etc., but they don’t do this with regard to religion, and often not at all with regard to western medicine.
You might be thinking right now that I am too evangelistic. It’s true. I am about nutrition, true spirituality, and alternative healing. I am not against western medicine, but at the same time, I do not view my doctor as my God. I am pragmatic with them. I do my research, take alternative routes, and practice what I preach. What I feel in my heart is always my guide.
I don’t post on health regiments that I have not tried, researched, and/or, in which I believe. My approach of taking responsibility has been devastatingly enlightening. I’ve avoided procedures, prescriptions (of which I have none), and most importantly take more responsibility for my part of the equation by making corrective changes in my lifestyle.
In 2010, when I was left to care for my mother. My siblings had agreed to have my mother’s gallbladder removed. She had been in severe pancreatic pain, had repeated ER visits, and most important to them, the doctor recommended removal of the gallbladder. When I arrived on the scene, the surgery was already scheduled to occur in two weeks. Immediately I did not agree with performing surgery on a 92 year old. I did research on the gallbladder, the suggested surgery details, and alternatives, and it opened the door to a whole new perspective, though I was already on the alternative path.
I found God, in how the gallbladder works! …How the body works in general! Basically, the gallbladder stores and concentrates bile from the liver to digest and absorb fats, as well as, neutralize ammonia in the intestine that could kill us otherwise. Think about that. This organ concentrates the exact mixture of bile we need to digest and avoid being chemically poisoned by our own bodies. It stores this fluid and contracts and expands to the exact measure required to keep us healthy. To me that is amazingly God’s work!
Well, come to find out, the bile duct gets clogged over time. It is mainly from our diet. I also found out that once the gallbladder is removed, it can no longer serve its God-given mission. It will just drip unmeasured amounts of concentrated bile as a constant drip, that’s not pre-calculated or premeasured. Claims, from patient testimonials, were that my mother would be assured of digestive issues for the rest of her life, if she didn’t die in surgery, if this procedure was performed, at her age.
Needless to say, I halted the surgery from ever occurring. Instead, I put my mother on the Gallbladder/Liver Flush alternative regiment. I took the proper prerequisite and post prerequisite steps. I was so confident in making this move, given all the research that I did, but also because of my faith.
During the regiment, we both passed hundreds of visible gallstones. After the regiment was completed, both my mother and I had no digestive issues. She never went to ER again for her gallbladder or pancreatitis. My dear mother when to heaven, with her gallbladder about 5 years later.
We must realize that though doctors have lab results, charts, x-rays, and diagnoses, there are important aspects of your wellbeing that they do not have access to, nor do they include in their assessments, such as: Your Gut Feelings, Your Faith, Your Lifestyle, or Your Determination.
I summarize, from the perspective of Kevy Michaels (I must say that), why people, like my siblings have more faith in the doctor, than they do in God.
Here they are:
Why Kevy Believes Some People Have Greater Faith in Doctors Than In God
- Fear – Doctors work the emotion of Fear well. They prey on our being gullible and provide the worse possible outcome which gets us in the palm of their hands, because we are unequipped (voluntarily) to counter their assessment. It has recently happened to me. We also generally fear the unknown, never realizing that a miracle too is in the realm of the unknown. But we tend to focus on the worse unknown, the one that the Nocebo Effect (Fear-based Medicine) spell has put us under.
“Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.” – Pope John Paul II
“Always do what you are afraid to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Liability – This reason applies mainly to those who are caregivers, as I was. It too is laden in fear. In the case of my siblings, and with many caregivers, I believe they feel safer doing what the doctor says, for it clears them of any liability. Though they may have some uneasiness about a medical recommendation, they know that if they ‘follow what the doctor says’, even if it kills, they are in the clear.
“Bravery is the choice to show up and listen to another person, be it a loved one or perceived foe, even when it is uncomfortable, painful, or the last thing you want to do.” ―
- Laziness – Most people are just too lazy to research medical issues. It takes a lot of time and you must filter through so much material to determine what is true and what isn’t. I simply ask them. “Isn’t your life or someone else’s worth the trouble?”. “Do you realize that you may be able to help others, as well, as I am doing?”
“Someone may have all the technical knowledge, scientific intellect and business know-how but when he/she decides to choose laziness, excuses, procrastination, complaining and other bad attitudes, his/her relevance is meaningless.” ― Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes
Ego – I run into this a lot with others. I try to offer health advice to others, without pressure, and they shun me away. I’ve concluded, based on the responses that I received, that they view me as thinking I’m ‘ Know-It-All’, and feel a bit of an insult on my challenging their ego’s choice. These type of people do not take advice from others that is contrary to theirs, even if they’re correct,because it deflates their ego to do so.
“I always pass on good advice. It’s the only thing to do with it. It is never any use to oneself.” – Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband, 1895
Guilt – To go against the grain requires faith that a higher power or force will ‘do the rest’. This type of faith bestows on the receiver responsibility to ‘do their part’, so that fate can do the rest. The problem is that they are not willing to do their part, by changing their lifestyle, influences, nutrition, spirit, and the ‘dirty health deeds’ that they do. Their guilt of not taking responsible actions themselves, prevents them from having faith in anything that’s outside of what the doctor implants in them.
“With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.” – Zig Ziglar
Faith – This is a big part of the problem. There are many folks out there with fake-faith. This is most contrasting in those who I call religious ‘holy rollers’. In good times they tell you about reading daily scriptures, will pray for you and on you, and boast about how the preacher had ‘the church on fire’, but when faced with a medical challenge, God goes out the door. They seem to be unable to rely on or act on the very faith that they profess, and may teach to others in Sunday school. Again, faith will bestow on them responsibility to do their part. They realize that it would be cheeky to do what the hell they want to, and expect God to still have mercy on them. So, they avoid responsibility, by avoiding exercising their faith.
“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.” – Jeremiah 30:16-17
