Who is responsible?

Think about it, think about the knowledge you have gained in the research of how to heal your child, the sheer number of parents you have connected with and even the suppliers for all of those umpteen pills you give to your child daily.  How did you find that fabulous DAN! doctor halfway across the state?  Have you asked yourself this question?

Well, of course YOU are responsible, right?  Yes, you have unequivicallly chased down the information you need and you most definitely have had to go against the grain to get answers.  But how has this been made possible....for parents to become their own "doctors"?

Turn the time back a few decades and imagine being a parent of a child like ours just ten or even twenty years ago.  What's missing?  Certainly bio-medicine was in existence, holistic doctors practiced medicine then too.  So what is the difference?  It's the internet!

What would we do, if we didn't have the world literally at our fingertips?  We wouldn't be finding fellow parents and building networks of thousands of people who aid in our exposure to the treatments and doctors available to us.  We have stretched our arms further than ever before, there is no rock left unturned, no doctor we don't have access to, and you have the internet to thank for that!

I am so grateful to be experiencing this journey at a time when I have such amazing people literally at my fingertips, because without all of you amazing bio-med parents out there, I wouldn't have known where or how to start.

But then, the question that begs to be answered becomes, if our children WERE born at a different time, would they be this sick?  Evolution sure has it's pros and cons, doesn't it?  Is the glass half empty or half full?

Hmm, you're right. But no matter the time and age, I think there's always been rare diseases, conditions, afflictions, and it must have felt sooo alone and alienating back when you couldn't google it and connect with a couple of bloggers and forums...I know I'm grateful, don't know where I'd be without it!

I say that same thing almost daily, "I don't know where I would be without the internet!" Not only does it fuel my research, but it's my connection to the outside world, as a stay at home mother of two, who doesn't have the chance to get out as much as I would like, lol.

Hi Jessica

Thank you for sharing this message. The best part here is that we are responsible. The faster people realize that, the better for them. We can ease so much suffering in our world today, but more importantly in our families, if we choose to exercise our free will, our wisdom and get active.

No more relying on what the media or the doctor says. We have so much knowledge at our fingertips today thanks to the Internet and it is sure as heck a good idea to use it wisely and create our lives consciously, wisely for the best.

Thank you for commenting Evita, I especially love this comment,

"We can ease so much suffering in our world today, but more importantly in our families, if we choose to exercise our free will, our wisdom and get active. "

We need to exercise our free will and stop fearing the "higher power" people see as their doctors. It should be a partnership, not a dictatorship.
