HEALING OR CURED……THE DIFFERENCE IS…. ©copyright 2011 bert seelman
When we are sick, weak, in pain, suffering from a disease or whatever, most want “relief” and it is usually desired right now. Alright, we all want any irritation, pain, or discomfort stopped, and true it is best when it happens “right now”. However this is where these “irritating effects” get truly fixed, restored and healed, or they get” relieved”. When these irritations, discomforts, pains and the like only get “relieved” and not truly healed, the problem will be back and with usually much worse circumstances. This relieving of the “symptom” is where it is only temporary, because actual restoration does not take place! To heal is to put back to the original condition, and integrity. Healing is the state of normal formation and total restoration of what was! Like the “manufacturer” would do or return something to the original. This is also where emotions should be overcome with logic and we should seek the long term quality solution for a true healing and restoration.
Many will just settle for “relief” and then because the body is still imbalanced for lack of whatever nutrient or natural requirement is still lacking or missing, the problem will raise its ugly head again. Then because of another failed process or faulty functioning (because no restoration has taken place) more or additional symptoms start and the individual is back on the merry go round again, looking for more relief! True actual “restoration” or healing, is the only real answer that lasts. Either restoration by healing which is to supply the missing or lacking nutrients, or to get “relief” through a pharmaceutical are both choices with greatly differing after effects. The “difference” is by using the pharmaceutical you are going to only “control” or “manage the symptoms” yet the underlying problem still exists. It can be very simple to take the pharmaceutical, it’s quick, easy, and doesn’t require a lot of learning and the symptom is usually quieted or masked (relieved). The problem is in using pharmaceuticals are that they are damaging to natural processes within our physiology and there is no actual restoration or rebuilding nor is there any positive effects within our bodies. So masking or hiding the real problem is truly the end result. No real healing, no rebuilding, no enhancement of any positive nature.
So long term it is self evident, with pharmaceuticals there is only negative, masking, and more damage at the cellular level. Pharmaceuticals are for “those who are never going to do something positive” like eat better, take supplements and try to maintain your body. But if you take the pharmaceutical route it may most certainly be a longer life suspended with many side effects and often very much lowered levels of physical performance. Simply put a drug suspended life! However if you take the route of healing, by eating better, taking supplements, adequate hydration, and developing healthy habits you will perform better, live longer, and live with more quality. You will not have to endure feelings of being ill, sick, pains, aches, etc, etc. your physical body will repair itself and you will truly be replacing old cells with new cells the way it should happen, naturally!
BY DEFINITION (from the dictionary)
CURE – HEAL –
1 – A spiritual charge 1 – to make sound or whole
2 – Recovery or relief from a disease 2 – to restore to original purity ,integrity
3 – A complete or permanent solution or remedy 3 – to return to a sound state
(for a solution, it can mean controlled by drugs)
4 – A process or method of curing
DOCTOR MEDICINE MAN
1 – An eminent theologian declared a sound expounder 1- a priestly healer or sorcerer of doctrine, a PhD. Note: healer, one who heals
PhD abbr. Latin Doctor (Doctor of Philosophy phi·los·o·phy phi·los·o·phies
1 – Investigation of the nature, causes, or principles of reality, knowledge, or values, based on logical reasoning rather than empirical methods. (meaning proof)
2 – A system of thought based on or involving such inquiry (not proven, just thought)
So by actual “definition” if we were to really consider meanings, it is obvious that to be “healed” is far better than to have a “cure”. Most individuals never “get it” that you get some “relief” with medications but the original or base problem is that our body is not actually restored. So when people take their medications, then the current irritating symptom is relieved they think and or actually tell themselves its fixed or I am better! Well at least for the moment this is somewhat true. You see when a pharmaceutical is used it “relieves,” desensitizes or covers, or masks that irritating symptom so they say,” oh, that’s much or all better.”
There are two blatant glaring facts that must be considered! The first is that when we use a pharmaceutical drug these are not nutrient compounds that are restorative to the body. Understand these compounds did not make, develop, or build our bodies through a growth, restoration or replacement process. Pharmaceuticals are agents that “relieve”, cover, lower, mask, neutralize the current “ouch”, irritation, pain, ache, itch etc. However , in almost all case’s the underlying problem stemmed, originated, or began from a lack, loss, inadequate supply of, or missing nutrient in our diet or intake of food so our body could not adequately respond, rebuild, or restore itself!
In simple terms healing is a “process”, not an event. A cure is a sort of “event”, in that the relief of pain or current irritating symptom is almost usually immediate. People being mostly emotionally driven, they tend to “opt for“the cure or immediate relief or the event of relief! Healing being a process, it is evident that it will take both, some time and some effort, to acquire and implement what is required to be “healed”. So we realize that quick or immediate, and especially “easy”, like taking a pill or pharmaceutical is usually the most often preferred option.
