Take this all with a grain of salt, as we are not medical professionals, however someday one of us will be.
While there are many problems with the world today, there are also many solutions. These problems, however, are something that we at groovyman hate the most: Labeling. The world is nothing but labels: white, black, male, female, Christian, Muslim. The list goes on. But there is one type of labeling that is demoralizing.
The labeling of mental illness.
We at groovyman have and know loved ones who suffer from mental illness. By writing this article we hope to erase the stigma associated with so called mental labeling. People are analyzed, studied, and thrown into a category if they meet certain “qualifications.” People are labeled as schizophrenic or depressed, and are then prescribed pills to combat these labels. The problem is that people begin to identify themselves as these things, and only these things.
They see themselves as the product of their mental illness, which is demoralizing and counterproductive.
This poses a huge problem for human beings on a material level:
We see ourselves as these things, constantly being told that the only way to be “cured” is through medication, or some other radical means.
However, don’t get me wrong, as medications have saved the lives of those I know. All I’m trying to say is that there are other options out there, open your mind to new, untraditional ways of combating your inner problems.
Pills come with many, many side effects and while yes there are benefits through taking these medications, there is one form of medicine that is completely ignored by these industries: Nature, which has the potential to work in ways that medication cannot.
“But groovyman, what is it that makes nature a better option than the precious pills we are told we need?”
Many things, but the biggest is price difference.
Pills cost hundreds of dollars, if not thousands. Nature requires not money, but time. Time, and some energy. However it is more than the money that makes nature amazing; mother nature fills the gaps that are left unfilled by medication. In a quote taken from mercola.com, the following is explained, “It took me nearly 10 years to break out of the drug model and realize that the drugs never treated the cause and only served to palliate the symptoms. They simply were NOT the solution.”
Nature allows for a peaceful and serene environment that can be filled with thoughts and self-reflection. Nature is simple, and that is the beauty of it. What nature does is it provides a sort of meditation and true calmness that nothing in a city or suburb will come close to.
What we are saying is not to completely set down your medication, but instead to realize there are more options than we are being told. Just like anything else though, too much of one thing is never good, so watch this commercial to see if it’s right for you.
