Today is Mother’s Day, 2021. What are you doing for your day? I’m writing to get the word out about a very important topic to not only Mom’s but also to Dad’s, children, Grandmom’s and Granddad’s everywhere.
We were created for such a time as this, so goes a verse in the book of Ester in the Bible. I have heard this over and over. Even got the t-shirt. O.k. maybe not the t-shirt but I did get the coffee mug. What does that verse mean to you?
To me, it means fighting for my rights and my child’s rights to have an integrative medical approach for any and all conditions that we might have. My youngest son happened to be born with two copies of the aberrant genes for Cystic Fibrosis. In a nut shell this genetic mutation causes mucus to be thick and stick instead of thin and slippery. Mucus is EVERYWHERE in the body, not just the nasal passages and lungs, but everywhere you can imagine as it keeps processes moving along or not moving in the case of Cystic Fibrosis.
So what’s a Mom to do when faced with a life threatening disease in her child? Pray. A lot. What do I do Lord? I first got prayer at a BBQ my small church “life” group was having on a balmy Sunday summer evening. “The Lord wants to absorb your grief” said my friend who began praying over me and my son.
And He did. HE ABSORBED my grief, so I could function and keep on keepin’on as they say here in Texas. I have not cried one more tear over my son’s diagnoses since that very evening.
What do I need from you? To please rally around me and my son in prayer, but not just for us but for our entire broken medical system to be revamped to include plant based care alongside pharmaceuticals when necessary. For choices to be just that, choices.
Without going into gory detail, I have been under the thumb of the medical model in this country through the court systems and have had to use pharmaceutical care almost exclusively and have had my other options almost completely eliminated. Coming against the establishment is not an easy thing to do, but with God all things are possible.
Please pray for God’s will to be done and that no longer will children be taken from their parents for exercising their choice in how they care for their health. I’m not talking extreme here, but I am talking taking down the established assumptions that all medicines are o.k. for my child. That he just has to get used to the awful side effects and then expect to take yet another medication when those side effects get to be too much for him.
CPS has been called on me no less than three times because I exercised my rights to assess and determine what was best for my son. I would say “our son” to include Dad, but right now he is on the other side of the table. My heart is broken over this.
Please if you would,
- pray for all parents and people everywhere to have the right to freely choose their medical care. No fear tactics utilized by medical system.
- pray that all physicians would be trained in natural care extensively as well as pharmaceutical care. That Big Pharma will no longer rule the medical system and schools.
- Pray for my son to get on the best regimen for HIS system. Pray for his and my strength and courage to win a landmark decision validating a parents right to choose the treatment path.
