I'd appreciate it if you could pray for my dad.
He's in the hospital with either a bladder infection or an infection from the prostate surgery he had last month, and as of yesterday, it sounded like the doctors are clueless about the whole thing. And in the meantime, my dad is not doing well at all, wasn't eating and was barely drinking. He has a whole list of medical conditions. A long list.
In the last month while researching natural cures and organics and health and wellness, I've been growing beyond-upset with the FDA. I can't even tell you how upset I am that natural cures have been hidden and ridiculed because they won't bring in any money to the powers-that-be--and on and on and on. And how popping pills is advised, nutrition is usually ignored, and the effects of stress/worry/unforgiveness are rarely mentioned. Well, don't get me started.
When my mother called yesterday to tell me all this, I asked her if they'd been giving my dad plenty of good, strong, pure cranberry juice for the bladder infection. I already knew the answer. My dad is one to take medication after medication and through the years has grown only worse. But my mother did say, in a surprised voice, that a nurse did mention the cranberry juice thing.
Sigh. I've been using cranberry juice to clear up anything which even resembles bladder or urinary tract infections for more than a decade and always--always--it has cleared things up almost instantaneously. My mother sounded as though she'd never heard of such a thing.
So my anger at the FDA jumped off the scale yesterday and today God is telling me to calm down, saying that anger will only make things worse. It will not help, especially, it will not help my own body.
What will help? Spreading information. Letting others know what I am learning as I do research of health and wellness online. And doing as our daughter is doing--she's helping a family next door to her learn all about eating right and using natural cures (they once lived in Love Canal and have lost loved ones to cancer). And well, they are experiencing downright miracles in their home. And our daughter is finding a purpose in life like never before and is more excited--and healthy-- than I've seen her in years.
I realize this is a controversial post--you won't need to point that out to me in my comment box. But this is my blog. This is what I'm feeling today. And again, I'd appreciate prayers for my dad at this time. Thank-you.
