4. Environmental factors – Increasing pollution of our air, water, and earth is a well known factor in the increasing level of many diseases. There is a high level of asthma and other allergic complaints in urban areas. Depleting ozone layer is a known factor in increasing rate of skin cancers. Noise pollution is a recognized factor in increasing anxiety and stress levels in our society.
To begin with, yes! I do believe in human spirit and God too. Wait! Don’t jump to any conclusions. Not yet. There is a big question that follows this one. What do you understand by God and human spirit? Well! I don’t know if there is something ethereal like God and spirits. For me God means ‘Good Deeds’. I don’t believe there is any God in idols and churches or heaven. I believe if there is any God, he is within us. The ‘Goodness’ in you is the God you think about. I do not know and can not know if there is a dynamic human spirit that animates us. What I know is that life itself is dynamic. And the spirit I believe in is the summary of our physical, mental, and emotional health. For me ‘human spirit’ is what a person really is, apart from what he appears to be. I believe what goes around, comes around. What you sow, is what you reap. So if there is a hell, it’s right here and if there is a heaven, it’s right here. I am not aware of my past-life or after-lives, if I had any. But I have this life to live – the life that I am aware of – and I want to live it healthily. That’s my spirit!
Visit your doctor if you have any health concerns. If you have any issues that are making you feel like you need to do a detox, then you might have an underlying health issue. If this is the case, it’s much better to handle that health issue with professional medical help. Don’t hesitate to visit your doctor for an exam if you think something might be wrong. This is the best choice to protect your health.
