"We have lost faith in this amazing organism, the human being, to overcome its own illnesses, and we have forgotten that true healing involves education and change. .... patients have been relegated to the status of mere victims, rather than pilgrims on the path to health."

The Fourfold Path to Healing
This paragraph really struck me when I read it. These few lines really bring to light how allopathic medicine has altered our self-efficacy. We need to be strong, surround ourselves with a supportive team and trust in our intuition. Healing starts from within yourself, it's not something someone else can prescribe.
On your journey to wellness, what do you need to encourage in your life in order to start healing? This is a fundamental question, something we should all ask ourselves.
