The bitter pill

It was one of these days of the month. nature reminded me that I am a women. It was one of these days of the month.

It was one of these days of the month. Nature reminded me that I am a woman. The first time since 15 years I took a chemical drug to soothe the pain. Within few minutes my face puffed up. Only the tip of my generous nose was visible. a bitter pill I’d say. I had the choice. Instead of bearing for few minutes in an effective, well known yoga pose, I gave preference to the quick fix. I went through operations, accidents, severe health distrubances and I didn’t touch chemicals. But I needed this experience to understand the heaviness of the impact. for me, for you, for humanity.

We think we live in a medicated world, but it is what we choose to. We refuse to think about prevention because we commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. The allopathic model. The quick fix. Yeah! We can continue our poor lifestyle and destructive dietary habits. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Let’s keep on blaming doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, the healers, the therapists, our mothers, the school system. Let’s be conscious grown-up’s. self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess.

Btw. if you are not a yogi… natural pain killers: ginger, turmeric, berries, cayenne pepper, celery/celery seeds, cherries, dark green veggies, walnuts.
