Speaking my truth-disappointment in Western Medicine

As a seasoned RN and Reiki Master I had hopes Western Medicine would soon embrace complimentary medicine, especially Reiki and related. But as time goes on, I find this acceptance is very slow in American Hospitals. I am going to speak my mind and I hope there are folks out there who support me. Dr Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist, has shown documented proof Western Medicine is the #1 killer in America-killing more than any major disease. Death is due to MRSA (hospital based infection), medical errors and side effect of drugs(100,000 a year reported). Just think if we had 100, 000 deaths in plane crashes annually would anyone get on a plane?? Just last week a cousin of mine announced she has breast cancer. She spoke of her treatment-chemo, radiation and surgery as if a wart was being removed from her finger. No problem-it will all be fixed by general medicine shortly. In shock, I asked her if Reiki or related was in her agenda...absolutely not! No need for such nonsence.
Personaally, I would immediately include a healing modality for myself if such a situation occurred. Cancer Centers of America, a holistic minded group, not only provides Reiki in the hospital but asks patients to get Reiki at home. Reiki works to help the whole body-reduces stress, reduces pain, promotes wound healing and can bring blood levels to normal in many documented cases. So whats taking America so long to embrace Reiki as vital to health? What are your thoughts on this topic?

The Day That Changed The Way I Think About Healing...

I remember the exact day my thoughts about conventional healing shifted. I was the charge nurse on a hospital oncology unit. One day, while working on my unit and preparing to infuse another IV, I held a bag of chemotherapy tightly in my right hand. As I reached for the IV tubing with my free hand, I spotted a medical magazine on the counter nearby. On the cover, in bold print, it read, “Energy Healing has been shown to reduce the size of tumors in a recent study.” It immediately awoke my interest. What was this “Energy Healing” about and if, indeed, it reduced tumors, could we practice it in my department?
After I read the journal, I was so drawn to the research and extraordinary stories of reducing the size of tumors with the use of healing hands therapy that I wanted to learn more.
I searched for places to study this type of intervention and a month later enrolled in a class called “Therapeutic Touch” at Michigan State University. That was the beginning of a long journey of discovery into the world of healing mind, body, and spirit. A powerful and new dimension of healing was revealed to me, one I never knew existed.
In class I learned that healing with hands is the oldest method of healing known to mankind. It is approximately 5,000 years old in written history and 12,000 years old in pictorial history. It has been with us since the beginning of time and probably will never leave. It has been practiced universally by every race, religion, color, and creed for centuries. Since it is part of our divine inheritance, it is innate in all of us: A mother pats the back of her crying child, and we place our hands on our head for a headache or on our stomach for stomachache. Simple responses that are so huge.

How has Reiki had an impact on your life? I can't wait to hear what you have to say.

valuable therapy

Our Therapy,Energy Therapy, is the oldest healing method known to human kind. Reiki and related have been on the planet for 5,000 years in written history and 10,000 years in pictorial history. Often debunked by western medicine, one must be aware of something I heard on world news yesterday-50% of all pediatric deaths are due to hospital based infections!! This does not include the thousands of adult deaths due to MRSA contracted in hospitals. Please walk tall Reiki friends of the light-be proud of the healing work you do. I look forward to your comments.
