Thanks so much for this post, Miss H. I hear ya, loud and clear. It seems like we're all in this boat of trying to 'change the world' in our own little surroundings, and it's a touch prospect. At least you know how much all of the work has helped you. I really am starting to believe that a lot of people are too far gone to 'get it', and it's almost like we have to protect ourselves, and do what's right for ourselves, first and foremost. We can always teach or give advice, but the conditioning runs so deep sometimes, it's just better to save our breath and simply walk the walk.
I can only think that one day, someone in my family or someone I know will end up with a terminal disease. I'm not hoping for it, but looking at the odds, I see how it could happen. And I know that I'm gonna be the one pushing natural health. That's what keeps me going in trying to heal myself, so that I can know exactly what to do, and have the energy, certainty and patience to really help them.
