16 quotes from medical doctors

Found this while browsing the web the other day. Feel free to share share share. I may end up in trouble for it, but we can't continue to keep silent about chemical medicine. There's simply no place for it in the human body. I understand emergency medicine...If I got into a car accident and my leg was ripped off..yes give me some vicodin and help me out doctor. I'm not gonna see a holistic doctor for something like that. But as far as "disease" goes...Well, you know what I think about such thing :)

Oh and check out this article while you're at surprise here...

1. "The cause of most disease is in the poisonous drugs physicians superstitiously give in order to effect a cure."  Charles E. Page, M.D.
2. "Medicines are of subordinate importance because of their very nature they can only work symptomatically."  Hans Kusche, M.D.
3. "If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity"  O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Med. Harvard University)
4. "Drug medications consists in employing, as remedies for disease, those things which produce disease in well persons. Its materia medica is simply a lot of drugs or chemicals or dye-stuffs in a word poisons. All are incompatible with vital matter; all produce disease when brought in contact in any manner with the living; all are poisons." R.T. TraIl, M.D., in a two and one half hour lecture to members of congress and the medical profession, delivered at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.
5. "Every drug increases and complicates the patients condition."  Robert Henderson, M.D.
6. "Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature's protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on, even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time." Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
7. "The greatest part of all chronic disease is created by the suppression of acute disease by drug poisoning." Henry Lindlahr, M.D.
8. "Every educated physician knows that most diseases are not appreciably helped by medicine." Richard C. Cabot, M.D. (Mass. Gen. Hospital)
9. "Medicine is only palliative, for back of disease lies the cause, and this cause no drug can reach." Wier Mitchel, M.D.
10. "The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine." William Osler, M.D.
11. "Medical practice has neither philosophy nor common sense to recommend it. In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further embarrassed and harder to cure." Elmer Lee, M.D., Past Vice President, Academy of Medicine.
12. "Our figures show approximately four and one half million hospital admissions annually due to the adverse reactions to drugs. Further, the average hospital patient has as much as thirty percent chance, depending how long he is in, of doubling his stay due to adverse drug reactions."  Milton Silverman, M.D. (Professor of Pharmacology, University of California)
13. "Why would a patient swallow a poison because he is ill, or take that which would make a well man sick." L.F. Kebler, M.D.
14. "What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?"  John H. Tilden, M.D.
15. "The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be abandoned."  Charles Armbruster, M. D.
16. "We are prone to thinking of drug abuse in terms of the male population and illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. It may surprise you to learn that a greater problem exists with millions of women dependent on legal prescription drugs."  Robert Mendelsohn, M.D

Manly P. Hall - Alchemy

Pay Attention to Dr. Jewel Pookrum

Pay attention to Dr. Jewel Pookrum if you seek out information about healing on a physical level but more importantly on a vibrational level. For years now I have always felt at the deepest core of my being that our physical circumstances and ailments originate in the mind.

For many people, this woman's teachings may go out a little too far within the metaphysic aspects of life. For me, it falls directly inline with my studies and understanding of the laws of the universe.

The funniest thing about this video series that I am posting here is that the talk was given in 1994 (the video quality is poor, better to just listen.) This information has been around for so long. This woman knows what she is talking about, she's got the Vision, tapped in for sure.

There are seven videos in this series. It really starts to get good around video 3 in my opinion.

Return to Nature

I have been absolutely inspired to return to nature. I hadn't realized how disconnected I have been truly. Though I'm staying in this beautiful guest house on an incredible piece of property here in Georgia, with the wooded trails behinds us and also the rolling hills around us---I should feel completely immersed in nature. SHOULD.

But it isn't that simple. How often do I go on the computer each day? How often am I watching movies? Bouncing from one thing to the next to keep myself entertained? Lets be honest. Humans are so used to instant gratification, that is one reason why eating a super clean raw food diet can be so challenging at times. I am not making raw food recipes that are tantalizing and exciting. More often then not I am drinking a juice or eating a melon. Which is a challenge for the part of me that used to make food a part of my entertainment and creativity. I look forward to getting back to that after I have done some fasting and cleared out some more things physically and energetically.

The path that I am on isn't an easy one. It's SIMPLE. But it isn't easy. To constantly be challenging myself in a way where I am promoting spiritual growth. I am often evaluating my life and feeling out, sensing where things are out of balance. And that includes where I might be too militant with things or too strict.

I realized yesterday that part of the reason I have gone so extreme with clean healthy eating is not only because I am trying to keep my energy clear and elevated for these times of ascension--but it's also been a strong call from inside to return to all that is natural. My whole being has been starved for the sight, smell, touch and taste of wind, sky, grass, sunshine, trees, plants, dirt, river, ocean, lake, birds, moss, hills, dessert, rain, herbs (you get it). And not so much these things specifically but collectively. There is a world much bigger that wants to be tapped into and acknowledged. And it isn't inside these four walls.

This NATURAL world is living, breathing and speaking. It is flowing and ever changing. This is where I will be rebalanced, this is where I will heal. But just like I have had to truly stop and look at my old eating habits and patterns from the past, I also will have to stop and truly examine my dependency on all that isn't in harmony with nature.

Don't get me wrong- I'm not gonna disappear somewhere in Alaska. I am also realistic. I mean, I'm on the computer right now, inside. But it has been so nice to feel with my whole being and understand with my whole and present mind that I am not stagnant or stuck-I am evolving and re-newing myself in cycles. What I am learning now is that I am moving towards a return to nature. And it took me awhile to get here, but this is unimportant because it is a full realization, a complete lesson and I am better for it.

After spending most of the day yesterday outside in the grass, reflecting on these realizations. I picked up The Essene Gospel Of Peace and turned to a random page and read this:

"And so did the Sons of Men exile themselves from their home, and ever since they have huddled behind their stone walls, hearing not the sighing of the wind in the tall trees of the forests beyond their towns.
  I tell you truly the Book of Nature is a Holy Scroll, and if you would have the Sons of Men save themselves and find everlasting life, teach them how once again to read from the living pages of the Earthly Mother.
  For in everything that is life is the law written. It is written in the grass, in the trees, in rivers, mountains, birds of the sky and fishes of the sea: and most of all within the Son of Man.
  Only when he returns to the bosom of his Earthly Mother will he find everlasting life and the Stream of Life which leads to his Heavenly Father; only thus may the dark vision of the future come not to pass."

Going to Market

 The farmers' market in Rockmart Georgia... It's a small town with a small market- but it still has some great produce. Reminds me of being back home, working the market with my friends and family :)

FLOW by Frank Cook


Today my good friend Greg told me to check out Frank Cook on youtube. He isn't alive now but he has many videos sharing information on plants and wild edibles.

After browsing through some of his videos and learning a little about nettles and The Pine family, I stumbled on this clip.

It struck me as rather synchronistic considering I have been pondering this concept of "flow" for a few days now.

I recently spent some time with a wonderful and powerful healer who told me not to worry about certain things because "that wasn't part of my flow." She used the word flow a lot, and I asked her what do you mean by flow? She did her best to give me an explanation that kinda made sense but It can be hard to bring these abstract and somewhat metaphysical concepts down into a simple language.

I think the universe would like me to understand this idea, concept or notion of flow much deeper since I was guided to this video.

Although he is talking about flow in the context of plants. I absolutely feel I understand much better now what my friend Lori meant when she used the word. This flow is the energy field that is within and without all of us. But everything and everybody has their own ways of directing, expressing and experiencing this energy- and that is when it becomes our personal flow.

About Frank Cook: 

Frank Cook was an herbalist, teacher, botanical explorer, activist and pollinator who turned people on to the abundance nature provides and the ability to self-actualize.
He considered himself a citizen of the world. We considered him to be an herbal extraordinaire, green wizard, botanical genius and Gaia-loving prophet of emerging planetary medicine and transition cultures. He touched a large number of people and instilled in them a deep love of the natural world as well as an empowered sense of self.
He was a phenomenal teacher. After hearing Frank share his way of seeing the world, many were inspired to connect with nature in some way – to eat something wild everyday, let your food be your medicine, practice simple living, show up on plant walks, make mead and wild ferments, or create your own herbal remedies for the family.
Frank taught us all the edible plants in our yard and woods. He showed us what plants were medicine and gave us medicine he had made from them. He awakened the herbal movement and graced our communities with old knowledge of traditional healers, reminding us to appreciate the whole plant and see plants as our allies. He encouraged us to think of local analogue plants to replace the endangered, over-harvested species of the world, and to walk the green path.
But Frank Cook did more than just enlighten us about plants. He expanded our minds and aroused higher consciousness: through his travel journals, his botany talks, his way of living by donation, and by taking us to our edges, and asking questions like, “What plants will be with us in this planetary culture rising?”, “How will you show up to help your community transition into these changing times?”, and “How can we best move forward?”
He firmly believed that we are in the midst of great changes on the planet and that it is our awareness and daily choices that will determine what quality of a future we have as people of one interconnected world. Frank spoke often of how we were quickly becoming one world. His central questions in this respect were: “What plants will be in our global gardens and stories?” “What will our global healing system look like?” “ What are the roles of the human species in the web of life?”
Frank was very much alive when he passed, full of visions, work and inspiration. He was known to say, “I am done with end users,” meaning that as we learned this knowledge and way of being he was teaching, it was now our responsibility to pass it on.

Here is another great video by Frank and the website associated with his work---and it looks like they are even making a documentary about him.

Who is Sophia?

The monkey mind will continue to carry on without intervention. Don't resist the barrage of endless and meaningless thoughts - but utilize the mind in your favor. First practice acceptance then offer direction.

I recently went into a stressed mental head space-but with no resistance. I just felt what stress was like from the most objective place I could. My rational mind told me---it was so quick to get into this place of stress, anxiety, aggravation. It should also be that easy to get out.

I found that taking a long walk in nature and not letting my mind run away with my emotions was key. The mind will take you on a ride if you let it. Don't believe your mind! It usually has nothing good to say and more often then not we allow ourselves to be so close to the mind that we cannot differentiate between our true SELF and the mental chatter.

Every human being is such a force of magnificent energy and potential that must be directed. Or we could end up going in circles. Without intention, visualization and goals to continually move towards, it's easy to get confused, lost, and even depressed.

For someone like me who has many many interests and passions but not one that I feel specifically guided to focus on, I have found that it is easy for me to feel lost, asking myself -Who is Sophia??
Human beings are so complex, I often feel I am a mystery to myself.

Yet I have a deep knowing that the time I have spent on my spiritual path has all been groundwork. I have been a sponge soaking up everything I can about all the different paths I find intriguing. I am always learning, always reading and always practicing some type of healing modality. And also always deepening my connection to spirit and God or All That Is.

I have been that way for as long as I can remember. Lately, I have been having many visions of past memories that I haven't seen in a long time. I remembered being very young, taking bubble baths, lighting candles and listening to Enya, maybe with a book. I was like 8 or 9 years old....WHO DOES THAT??? Yes, I definitely have an old soul. And sometimes I feel just plain old. Because I get so serious about my mission here on earth.

I have learned that the greatest medicine on the planet is laughter, I am already enlightened (Dr.Hawkins says so!) and that the path of acceptance/non-resistance to what is- is one of the most powerful ones. So I will continue on with this journey of always trying to be the most awesome Sophia possible and learn as much about her as I can. She is a good person and doing her best.

Taking this life too seriously is probably my biggest downfall.

Love, forgiveness and laughter is key.

Conversations With God

Fall in love with as many people as you like.

But if you're going to form a lifelong relationship with them, you may want to add a little thought.

Be sure you and your mate agree at a conscious level that the purpose of your relationship is to create an opportunity, not an obligation---

an opportunity for growth, for full self-expression, for lifting your lives to their highest potential, for healing every false thought or small idea you ever had about you, and for ultimate reunion with God through the communion of your two souls---

if you take that vow instead of the vows you've been taking---the relationship has begun on a very good note.

Still it's no guarantee of success. If you want guarantees in life, then you don't want life. You want rehearsals for a script that's already been written.

Life by its very nature cannot have guarantees, or it's whole purpose is thwarted.
