Have It Your Way, If You Insist!

 Oregano Oil And Antibiotics

The premise I am making is based on the argument that man cannot create anything superior to what already exists in nature and the specific niche I want to address is medicine but before I get there I want to momentarily dwell on this concept of man's drive to create.  Considering that man is made in the image of God, it stands to reason that each of us share bits and pieces of His character and behavior.  Since we are creatures, we of course have limitations in regards to our abilities whereas God has no creative limitations or hinderances in acting out His will.


Synthetic vs. Natural

With that in mind, it have been revealed to us through the ancients that when God gave man a place on the earth, He also provided us with an abundance of plants and herbs numbering in the thousands that benefit our well being.  Considering, His perfect provision for us, does it stand to reason that we really need synthetic alternatives for our bodily benefits?  I don't think so and I would challenge anyone to prove to me that synthetic products of any kind can command a superior position over natural products.


Antibiotics Defined

I would go so far as to say that synthetic products are not only inferior to natural products but that they do more harm than good for mankind and the further these synthetics depart from the natural order of life, the more dangerous and harmful are their effects on the human body.  Pharmaceuticals are a prime example and more specifically, we can address antibiotics which have been falsely touted as one of the great discoveries of the 20th century.   The very term 'antibiotic' should solicit concern in that the term is defined as 'anti-life' or 'against life'!  So, what do antibiotics do exactly?  Simply explained, they indiscriminately kill bacteria both good and bad and unfortunately many forms of bacteria are necessary for good health so when you're ingesting antibiotics you are indeed destroying bad bacteria but you are also destroying the micro flora that is crucial to bodily health but not only are you compromising your immediate health, you are also paving the way for the pathogens which have intelligence to strengthen their abilities to fight against the synthetic antibiotics which don't have intelligence.  Thus we are now seeing the evolution of super bugs which are a major and ever present danger in every hospital across America and around the world.  


Wonders Of Natural Oils

There is ample research available (which I will address in future articles) to prove the superiority of plants and herbs ability to effectively destroy bad bacteria without any detrimental side effects.  More specifically, we can look at oil of oregano as one of the most effective naturally occurring products available that acts as an antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and an antioxidant.  Oregano oil is packed with minerals and vitamins and outperforms any and every antibiotic on the market by targeting a myriad of bad pathogens while at the same time strengthening the immune system and girding it up so that it is better able to combat infectious invasions of destructive bacteria.


Natural Empowerment

Additionally,  oregano oil is significantly less money than a round of antibiotics and low and behold, it is are available without a doctor's prescription! One of the key components to gaining bodily vitality, clear thinking and new found energy is to take responsibility for your own well being by disciplining yourself not to rely on government mandated healthcare.  Practice thinking outside the box and stay connected with others of like mind to keep your skills of discernment sharp, clear and focused and most important of all, seek to uncover nature's secrets!


Mindless Disclosure

 I found the following statement on another website and liked it so much I thought I would share it with you:

"These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and this product is not intended to diagnose, cure, prevent or treat any diseases."
The above is a government ordered statement and is not based in either reality or sanity, just like our government.

The Orthodox Way

"No one can learn the art of virtue by himself, though some have taken experience as their teacher. For to act on one's own and not on the advice of those who have gone before us is overweening presumption. If the Son does nothing of His own accord, but does only what the Father has taught Him (cf. John 5:19-20), and the Spirit will not speak of His own accord (cf. John 16:3), who can think he has attained such heights of virtue that he does not need anyone to initiate him into the mysteries? Such a person is deluded and out of his mind rather than virtuous."

St. Gregory of Sinai

Modern Medicine Myths Parallel Greek Mythology


The Greeks had their many gods, and modern western civilization has its "science." Throughout human history, cultures have always invented mythological heroes to heal and protect them. Those cultural heroes have typically taken the form of imaginary deities (such as in Greek mythology). But today in modern medicine, they take the form of imaginary scientific achievements that assume the same roles as make-believe deities.
In times of ancient Greece, for example, citizens who wanted fertility prayed to Demeter. Today, Americans pray to Viagra.

In ancient Greece, citizens who wanted happiness prayed to Eutychia. Today, Americans pray for Prozac.

In ancient Greece, people who wanted to improve the quality of their sleep prayed to Hypnos. Today, Americans pray to Ambien.

The gods and goddesses change, but the underlying mythology stays the same: These pills (or deities) have magical properties that alter your state of being or protect you from tragedy.
