Health and healing of our bodies and our souls is something that we need to take
responsibility for "ourselves". This is an important trust that cannot
be delegated to anyone - not even to your own doctor. We have the responsibility
to research, read, and look at all of our options, statistics and labels, and make
the best informed choice for ourselves.
Although this is crucial in a crisis, it is something best prepared for when not
under stress. It is a conviction, a mind set, and a lifestyle. There is,
fortunately a wealth of information available, that has not always been
here. I am so grateful for this. Hopefully you will be too.
"Now, what I contend is that my body is my own, at least I have always so regarded it.
If I do harm through my experimenting with it, it is I who suffers, not the state." - Mark Twain
