Terminal Illness: What Does It Mean?

It seems that with the ongoing advances of traditional medicine, the diseases keep up to ensure that there are always a few monsters under the bed to scare us. Any disease for which we have a successful treatment and cure, obviously, loses its edge. Our fear factor is only truly engaged by a terminal illness, which is believed to be hopeless.

Thus, for the current generation of physicians, healers and patients, we have cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer's disease and a short list of other scary conditions. A terminal illness can be defined as active and progressive illness for which there is no cure and the prognosis is fatal.

However, history has proven time and time again that a much better definition of terminal illness would be an active and progressive illness for which there is no cure…yet. The vast majority of our previously terminal illnesses are now treatable and patients recover to on living a full life.

Sadly, far too many people perish prior to the discovery of a traditional cure. Sadder still is the fact that too many people meet their fatal fate far too soon simply because they were told that they have a "terminal illness."

Evidence exists, and continues to build, which indicates that perhaps the most terminal aspect of these illnesses is the proclamation that they actually are fatal. The effect that this statement has on the outlook and belief system of the average patient is actually staggering.

Realistically, all healing happens within us. Though we have many tools at our disposal, via doctors or homeopathic practitioners or our own spirituality and/or knowledge self. Any tool that we choose, embrace and accept as workable will lead us down the path of self healing.

Not all tools are created equal, however. The difference between using a cheap hammer with a loose head and using a high-end hammer with a solid head may, at first, be unnoticeable. After all, the nail still ends up embedded in the wood. It is only a matter of time before the cheap hammer slips, potentially providing us with great injury in the process.

It is the same in the field of healing.

Those faced with a terminal illness are often offered pharmaceutical concoctions designed to treat the symptoms of the illness or to make our "transition easier." Some of these chemical creations may even be able to extend the length of our lives. The price we pay, for far too many of them, is a sacrifice of our quality of life.

The voices of those who work and believe in therapy techniques have finally become more easily accessible to those who want to look. While it should go without saying that everyone should take total personal accountability for their own health, this concept becomes incredibly important once there is a terminal illness involved.
