… organizations fighting against diseases i.e. cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer etc. etc. And my reason is ….
Cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer, rheumatism etc. are all men-made diseases. We created them with our unhealthy lifestyles, with all the chemicals we put into our waters, soils and eventually into our bodies. There are over 100,000 – yes, hundred thousand – chemicals today in our environment that has never gone through testing. Therefore we don’t know how harmful they are to living systems.
Organizations that stand for a specific disease and collects money from people for support is a nice notion. But in my opinion it also makes people become victims. When you are a ‘victim of a disease’ you lost your power. And in power lies the seed for change, empowering ourselves and understanding that health is created by each individual and by the choices we make.
We live in unhealthy conditions which we created and it is foolish to think that giving money to charity will solve any problems. Albert Einstein said “You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” So true.
When people become aware and more responsible of their actions and start to change their lifestyles then we will have less health and environmental problems. When people demand healthy work environment and hold corporations responsible who destroy livelihoods then things will change. There is no easy pill for this folks.
In the pursuance of health creation, giving money to disease fighting charities is futile as only what it does is mask the problem further. Without actually going to the roots and start solving the problem there, no balance will be achieved and no health will be gained.
We need to gain back the balance within ourselves but mostly with Mother Nature.
