My problem with biomedicine comes when it leads people to think of the body as a bunch of replaceable parts - like your car. Our bodies are not machines that are prone to breaking down. Our bodies want to function properly! They strive to be healthy, even with all of the unhealthy things that are thrown at them!
Our bodies are incredibly stoic, and when they finally cry out for help, it's because the situation has become too much for our bodies to deal with. This is a time when we need to take a look at the lifestyle choices we've made. Do we consume alcohol? Do we consume lots of sugar? Do we smoke? Do we not exercise? Are we living an incredibly stressful life?
I'm not saying not to get biomedical help. Quite the contrary. Once a body has cried out, it's important to do whatever is necessary to reverse the situation. What I'm saying is that we need to be more proactive and preventive about our health, to prevent our bodies from having to cry out in the first place. We also need to change the environment that caused our bodies to cry out, so that it doesn't keep happening.
I want you to start by respecting your body and it's ability to persevere. Give it what it needs to function well. Don't give your body anything that won't allow it to flourish. But most of all, I want you to love your body and everything it does for you!
