Steve Jobs had the Buddhist training. I just learned this and so it goes he would choose alternative methods of healing. All my friends go nuts when I try to heal myself naturally. I have had hits and misses with taking the reigns but nothing as serious as cancer.
Right now I have a red spot on my nose that has been there for as long as I can remember. Maybe 20 years? I just cover it with Erase and end of story. Well....no.....it crusts over and then I get scared and try to figure out how to heal it. Every one tells me to go to a dermatologist. I instead go to the net and try apple cider and think ......wow it worked....well not all the way so a friend tells me New Zealand honey heals all .....so now I am back to the honey. Maybe because my mother did not believe in going to doctors so there go I.
Also I have a metallic taste in my mouth that has been there for a few months now. I already know everyone will freak saying ...get to a conventional doctor. When all else fails I go to the Oriental College of Medicine so I may be on my way there soon.
A health, fit, and fashion blog needs to be honest if nothing else. For me I cannot stand blogs that regurgitate information that to me is conventional (duh). Example: Check with your doctor. Well hello my doctor is myself. So I am checking in with myself.
Buddhist teachings are for me precious. I think because it teaches to take responsibility for yourself and not give your intelligence away.
