First and foremost, I’m not totally against mainstream medicine or pharmaceutical drugs, but I do have reservations in some areas, particularly in the use of chemotherapy in cancer treatment and total dependence on pharma drugs.
Personally, I’m now a believer and doer of natural treatment at home. I no longer use medical drugs at every turn if I’m sick. When I can I prefer moringa oleifera or most commonly known as malunggay in Filipino. I eat malunggay if I have fever, or when my tooth aches. But I do use tablets or capsules when I’m traveling.
Not only natural healing is effective and cost-saving, it is what God has commanded us to do. Yes, you read that right.
It is also ironic that Christians, even other religious people believe in prayer, considered a “supernatural healing”. If they’re sick they ask others to pray for them or for their love ones. But oddly Christians prefer more the synthetic healing than natural healing.
Why should Christian doctors practice natural medicine?
1. It’s commanded in the Bible. God said it in Genesis 1:29.
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
2. Nature works best with the human body, which is also nature. I believe why chemotherapy has less than 5% effectivity rate, because chemo is a synthetic type of treatment, though it has a good purpose, but it’s nearly a useless tool. It only postpones the death date of a patient.
There are many cancer treatment survivors who walked the natural treatment path. Thanks to Dr. Max Gerson who originated the modern natural medicine through juicing vegetables and fruits.
Brief background about Max Gerson. He had cured his migraine who was considered by mainstream medicine at the time as an incurable disease. But he didn’t believed it, he knows there is a cure. He researched and eventually found a cure, through juicing apples.
Man healed of his cancer by consuming apricot seeds, although it did not specify how. But it landed him in jail for advocating and selling the seeds.
I’m not saying you discard your current knowledge about medicine. But as a Christian, consider what God has originally intended for us, consider natural medicine.
