Forget the Cures, Find the Cause

Stop treating the symptoms and treat the cause. It sounds like advice from our mothers, doesn't it? Unfortunately, today's society at large has turned away from the wisdom of our elders and our knee-jerk reaction is to pop a pill for whatever ails us. In Forget the Cures, Find the Cause, Rayna M. Gangi makes a case for eliminating the quick fixes that have become a staple of American life, yet never seem to truly solve our medical dilemmas. Gangi explains why treating every pain or ailment, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, fails to work. The reason modern medicines and treatments fail to work is simple: we have failed to eliminate the cause. Gangi leads the reader through a path of self-discovery and a return to common sense as she illustrates how today's lifestyle is actually destroying our very existence.
According to Gangi, a Holistic Health practitioner, the path to wellness lies in changes in diet and our ways of thinking. She points out that most medical professionals earnestly want to help patients, but are restrained by threats of lawsuits and are locked into their own idealistic interpretations of what are currently known as traditional practices, clouded by cultural biases. As patients, we force ourselves into vicious cycles of self-destruction when we medicate our insecurities rather than attempting to discover the circumstances causing our pain. Gangi believes that humans react to every situation either from love or from fear. Choosing to react from fear can actually cause that which we fear most to materialize.
Utlizing Native American medicine and lore combined with Christian spirituality, Gangi provides us with some simple steps for improving our own physical health. She speaks with a motherly compassion for humanity as she accompanies us on our journey through our Earthly existence. Part instruction and part inspiration, Forget the Cures serves as a crucial reminder to mankind to slow down and stop letting the chaos of modern life prevent our bodies from completing the self-mending they were designed to do.
