Bloodletting: The Future Of Medicine

There was a time in history that the medical community believed bloodletting would cure diseases.  Scientists are now investigating sunblock to determine if it causes us more problems than the threat of sunburn and UV exposure.  There was a time when we believed the Earth was the center of the universe and others planets circled us versus the opposite.  It was once thought that women were incapable of intellect because they had a smaller brain than men.  So what is my point?

If you do not occasionally reevaluate your thought processes you might find yourself viewing life in ways that are not only standing in the way of your progress, but actually holding you back from bettering yourself.  Humans use habit to relieve the brain of having to work hard 100% of the time; like being on autopilot.  The downside of habits is they create a “rut” that people easily follow regardless of productivity.  Meaning people continue to carry out actions and thoughts regardless of the influence on their life.

If you have read my blog for any length of time you may be familiar with me saying “change your thinking, change your life.”  Once you realize you have spent the last 10 years “bloodletting” while the remainder of civilized society has moved on to more modern medicine, it is time to change habits.

I reevaluate my habits often to make sure they are giving me the results I want in life.  If I find a habit that has become unproductive I cast it aside and replace with a different action.

This way I am continuing to move forward and continuing to give myself the best opportunity to reach my goals!

Just thinking out loud…

  1. Danny,
    I constantly reevaluate myself and do not like myself or who I am at all. I try to change but my changes are not lasting. But I try.
    On another note, Danny, what is your advice on how to make money- a little extra to put away for an educational course which is very expensive to pay for – a post or some advice on this would be very welcome.

    1. Susie, anything for you! I have just the thing. And I will post for you one afternoon this week. My favorite way to make a little extra cash is having a yard sale!

  2. Doctors now consistently test for Vitamin D. Which the body metabolized in the sunlight. Its and expensive test as well, in some cases adding hundreds of dollars to a panel that the lab is asked to run. The skin needs sun to metabolize vitamin D, we cannot be without sun on our skin, all sorts of ills result. Saturation divers are required to spend 10 minutes a day in front of a sun lamp for just this reason. I had a personal experience with warts clearing up after I left a job that kept me indoors 6 days a week. I left and spent some time shortly after that in Florida, the warts healed within a week, they had been on the back of my hand for months before. Science is dogmatic, each of us must evaluate our world view individually, we are not taught truth, we are taught what I would call common knowledge – which is not always common sense!

    Yes, yes, yes! A million times yes! Admitting that you’ve been doing things “wrong” or believing in falsehoods isn’t a bad thing, it’s a glorious thing that should be celebrated! Stagnation is the worst thing that could happen to you as a human being. Challenge your way of thinking and doing things daily! If your beliefs and actions stabs up to a test, then you can rest assured that they are still sound. If not, embrace the new and kick the old to the curb!
