Law of Obstruction of Cures

Obstacles to Cure

Proper healing of a chronic disease requires the sufferer to take responsibility and making some changes or improvements to his/her lifestyle.

Many aspects of modern life style are detrimental to our health, and are obstacles to regaining health. Drugs and other quick fixes can only temporarily remove symptoms in chronic illness. In order to truly conquer chronic illness, the patient and the practitioner need to work together to identify potential obstacles, and set about eliminating them.

If the patient is prepared to work on removing these obstacles to healing, the organs of elimination are freed up so that normal metabolic processes can start working again. This is essential before intervention with forms of alternative medicine such as Homeopathy, Acupuncture or Functional medicine can be fully effective.

Some examples of Obstacles to Cure:

  • Smoking nicotine
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Abuse of addictive, mind altering drugs
  • Certain pharmaceutical drugs
  • Poor diet e.g. excessive or insufficient consumption of certain foods and nutrients
  • Excessive intake of preservatives, chemicals or other pollutants in the diet
  • Insufficient intake of water
  • Mental pollution i.e. excessive negative emotions or stresses
  • Perceptions about health and disease e.g. cultural or societal traditions
  • Lack of awareness, or rigidity about change
  • Physical inactivity
  • Poor time management e.g. excessive time pressures
  • Lack of regular, good quality sleep.

Some of the above obstacles may take on more importance than others, depending on the nature of the chronic disease. The best progress will be achieved by correcting or removing all the relevant obstacles. This is usually very difficult to do all at once, as habits become entrenched and changes difficult to make.

A determined and positive mindset should be the first and foremost goal; if this can be achieved the other lifestyle changes become much easier. The aim is to take small steps by first making changes one at a time, at a pace with which one can cope. Soon the changes gather momentum rather like a snowball gaining speed.

Many chronic diseases will be resolved by merely addressing the obstacles. If needed, further steps towards health can be taken with the aid of a variety of therapies offered to you here.
