What Do You Think?

What Do YOU Think?
By Linda Memmesheimer, founder, Think Wholistic
What I think now is a complete 180 from what I use to think.
I use to think that I was healthy,
and then I got cancer.
I use to think that I knew a lot about health, because I taught it; and then I learned that most of what I was teaching (like the food pyramid) was not only wrong, but totally upside down.
I use to think that we had the best medical system in the world, until I was thrown into a system that is controlled by those with power and not by those with disease. When I finally saw the statistics of how chronic disease continues to rise, and treatments fail to heal, I knew I wanted to go in a different direction.
Like most people, I was led to believe a lot of things, because I never took the time to do much research.
As the saying goes. “We don’t know what we don’t know” because most of us think if it’s not broken, don’t try to fix it.
Unfortunately, we tend to wait until we are forced to before we change our way of thinking.
That is what happened to me when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2007.
When I saw the real statistics for cancer treatments, I knew I did not want the standard of care, and so I began to research intensely. I buried myself in books, web resources, and events and I began to gravitate towards more natural health solutions instead of the treatments my doctors were recommending.
Each time I uncovered a new option I was able to let go of more fear; and bit by bit, I found the power of knowledge.
I have no animosity towards my allopathic doctors. I had a team of very kind and caring practitioners who I believe truly thought were doing their best for me. But I became disheartened by the way I was categorized by my pathology report and not by my own willingness to think beyond the standard of care.
No one seemed to consider what I thought. I was just a number in the system and I was told I should follow the protocol if I wanted to live. That lack of personal support made me walk away from my traditional doctors and seek new ones who were more aligned with what I came to believe was the best route for me to regain and retain my health.
I discovered a whole new way of thinking and learned that the path to True Health starts with my own step forward.
Once I overcame cancer, I knew my destiny was to teach what I had learned, and hopefully help others from ever even going down that path.
My dream became to create what I wish I had had when I was diagnosed with cancer-A resource I could trust to come and learn, be inspired and become empowered so I could get off the path to sickness and on the path to True Health.
Think Wholistic will not be as focused on treating disease, as much as it will be committed to creating an environment where disease might not establish itself to begin with.
Think Wholistic will be a network of people connecting to each other and sharing their knowledge, experiences and support with those in need.
My vision for Think Wholistic is not to tell our readers what to think, or how to think, but to encourage them to actually take the time to THINK for oneself and discover their own truths.
I hope that our Think Wholistic partners and contributors will encourage you to THINK about a WHOLE LIST of things you might have never considered before.
Some things we discuss here may not resonate with you. That is okay.
Some things may not work for you. That is normal. We all have unique needs.
The only thing that is important is that you never give up until you discover your own Path to True Health and Happiness.
Life is too short to settle for less.
