“We’ve handed over our health to those who seek to profit from it, and we’ve been buying into a paradigm based on the following notions:      We are broken.      Fear is an appropriate response to symptoms.      We need chemicals to feel better.      Doctors know what they are doing.      The body is a machine requiring calibration (via drugs). A little too much of this, too little of that. I call this collective set of notions the Western Medical Illusion. It sets up a vicious system that ushers you into lifelong customer status, dependent and disempowered.”
