Life and Death Medical Miracles

I have met many people who have received a fatal diagnosis from their doctor, received the same grim prognosis from a second doctor, both suggesting the patient has, “6 months to live,” and that they should, “get their affairs in order.”

Interestingly enough, some of them experience miraculous recoveries.

Revisiting their doctors, they are re-examined and the doctor’s reply is the same, including two options:

“This is either a miracle or a misdiagnosis.”

Not all of the patients are faced with having to sort through the details of their recovery in an effort to discover why they aren’t dead, because most of them did die. Those who lived are grateful to have another day and continue to do so for the remainder of their long life.

No one believes in miracles more than me, but if you have access to the people who lived and ask the right questions, another vista begins to appear on the horizon.

Based on my (admittedly anecdotal) research of those who have lived and others who have died, I have concluded that a common perspective is shared by those who live and alternatively those who die.

Mind you, I am promoting no agenda, just offering up my observations for you and possibly other more qualified researchers to further investigate. That said, the people who live

Don’t Want to Die

Don’t seem to care much whether they live or die

The people who experience miraculous recovery (or misdiagnosis) have reasons to live. In fact, if you query them, they passionately list many reasons for living another day. They are so enthusiastic, that if I were God, I couldn’t help but give them one, and another, and another…

Of course, if you dig deeper, there seems to be another component in place for those who have looked death in the face and proclaimed, “Sorry. Ain’t goin’ there.”

And that is that they began to live. They began to live their life like never before. They began to live their life like they only had six months to live, then five, then four, then three, then two, then one, then each day – one day at a time – living each day as if it was their last, in an effort to fit as much life into that one day as possible, then onto the next.

Alternatively some of those who defied death took full responsibility and alternative proactive approaches to their medical condition, which may have included a complete change of lifestyle and an out-of-country medical vacation. Medical tourism is growing by leaps and bounds as Baby Boomers go offshore for alternative treatment modalities that are highly effective but not legal in the United States.

Other alternative therapies are also considered to affect change and to enhance one’s ability to enjoy a higher quality of life in their remaining days or years.

So, the “miracle” in the doctor’s miracle-or-misdiagnosis proposal appears much less than a miracle than it may seem. In fact, the doctor’s referring to what has actually transpired seems to be not the declaration of a miracle at all but more of a dismissal of anything the patient may have done to affect such a miraculous metamorphosis.

It might be worth contemplating the question

What would you do if you were given six months to live?

Having an idea about how you might respond may have you prepared and at peace with your reaction if you are ever the recipient of such a grim diagnosis.

Or, you might consider living a better life, your best life and making the world a better place now and possibly even bypass the entire scenario altogether.

You don’t need a death sentence to start living.

You can start living your best life today.

Self Healing and Health Care

I have the privilege to work with people who are both patients and practitioners of alternative treatment therapies. It never ceases to amaze me that people can heal themselves of all types of ailment, from sleeplessness to cancer without drugs or surgery.

People with ailments are looking for alternative methods to deal with the emotional and physical issues that rear their ugly head when you least expect it.

The health management industry is bilking the unsuspecting public while promoting continued dependence on the system for health management. For instance, if you have pain in a particular area of the body, you can go the doctor and get a prescription medication to reduce or eliminate the pain. The prescription medication is scientifically designed to target the specific ailment, but also possesses a host of side-effects.

No problem, as the doctor has prescription medications to treat the ailment(s) arising from the use of the original prescription, each with its own set of side effects with prescription solutions for these new ailments also.

Is it just me? Or does anyone else see a problem with this form of health management system?

It occurred to me long ago, when making deathbed visits to people in the last moments of their lives, the mass of little brown bottles on the nightstand made me think something might be wrong with the system. I’m not saying it is entirely broken, as many lives are saved and life enhanced by medical intervention, treatments and surgeries. But there appears to be a dark side to medicine is disconcerting, to say the least.

People are waking up to the reality that something is amiss and they are seeking alternatives. There are thousands of non-medical treatment alternatives for just about anything that ails you, all within a few keystrokes of Google.

I actually know people – real, live people – who have healed themselves from chronic diagnosis indicating a short-term death sentence (given six months to live). Rather than take the prescribed treatment approach to dealing with their life-threatening circumstance, they reach out and embrace alternative treatment modalities varying across the board.

All the people who have decided to take an alternative approach to healing themselves using natural, spiritual or other types of alternative non-medical treatment, have had to deal with the negative side effects of being attacked by friends, relatives and licensed medical professionals, most being asked, “Are you crazy?”

Most of them proceed in secrecy, so as to avoid the negative feedback from others who disagree with their decision to seek out alternative treatment models. In fact, they report that maintaining a positive environment is a critical component to their treatment alternative.

I embrace personal health care and take responsibility for my own wellness without using prescription medications and feel as though my efforts are very effective, though it takes continual research and experimentation because what works for one person might not work for someone else.

Fortunately, there are health care professionals who also embrace these alternative treatment modalities. In this way, I can focus on my own self help therapy with holistic support and reaching out to a naturopath in search of an intervention offered by homeopathy as an alternative to seeking a traditional doctor who is likely to rely solely on prescription medications.

A naturopathic doctor will offer holistic medicine alternatives, like homeopathic remedies which are natural remedies and other alternatives, and a holistic doctor will refer you to a medical doctor, if necessary, to augment a complete integrative medicine approach.

I honor professionals and their work on both ends of the healthcare treatment spectrum.
