I am currently in a place between 'metaphysical healing' of all disease and illnesses
and, using the 'human footsteps', 'dietary techniques, etc', of practical nutritional healers like Mh, and environmental techniques, with good results.
The truth I find is somewhere in the middle. CS, christian science practitioners never see a md, never believe in diseases and the bulk of the true practitioners of CS never get sick and if they do, they cure themselves immediately with 'correct thinking' with astonishing archived results. Most of the 80, 90 and 100 year olds at my church are beautiful in form and physique for thier age. So faith and belief has a lot to do with good health. The scientific placebo effect proves this also.
I asked my CS teachers about diet and they all agreed improper diet was gluttony and or a 'lack of wisdom', ie., an error of thought and hence error in action, i.e., over eating, etc. I am trying to 'marry' faith healing from God, metaphysics, with practical common sense diet and lifestyle, human footsteps. As the two, correct human diet, actions and good spiritual beliefs are compatable and compliment each other.
The problem I encounter is scientific views, manifestations and under a microscope views making disease seem very real. Recently I got a rash like athletes foot from my local gym where towels are shared and we have shared lockers, shared gym mats, equipment and shared gym swimming pools. In searching for a complete cure I found I had to use FIVE approaches to effect a 100% cure. 1. Mh's clean diet and herbs to build up my immune. 2. conventional treatment, selenium sulfate on legs for 10 minutes for 3 days in a row to kill fungus and lamasil and bleach to kill any fungus. 3. Metaphysical thought. 4. Casting out errorful spirits. 5. Avoiding exposure to a gym locker room and swimming pools where I noticed many people who have fungal sores and other type open sores on thier bodies swim and share the facilities. (A diver told me the bottom of the pools were covered with band aides that fall off of the swimmers.)
I do not know if one cure alone would have cured it. Cures seem to me to be a multi layer interdisciplinary combination of God aka higher mind, AND common sense applications.
As for your state fair post MH, it is not only the poor who are diseased. The gym I got a leg fungus infection at is in one of the wealthiest areas of my state. (I am a poor person living in a so called 'affluent' area). At this so called 'affluent' gym, I see lots of rich people who suffer obesity, diseased skin, deformities, are handicapped, mis shapen, people with crippling bone diseases who can not walk correctly even though they are young, people with really bad pimples and acne, adults and children with big open skin sores, bad rashes, people coughing year round complaining of allergies etc, on and on. The super super rich I met, i.e., owner of RJ Reynolds Tobbaco, she had one of the worst cases of parkinsons shakes I ever saw, and all her 'super rich' friends were obese and or suffering from one disease or another. Disease does not care rich or poor, middle class, lower class, upper class, or super super rich.
Disease is in the mind, body, spirit and environment and it seems to me it takes a multi interdisciplinary approarch to eradicate disease 100%.
Thank you, for letting us share and learn and experiment together on your forum. I think it was webmaster who once posted, issues are not always black and white but come in many many different shades of grey inbetween. Dealing with black and white and all those shades of grey inbetween takes a multidisciplinary approach.
