the last few decades there have been many developments in scientific fields.
Researches and experiments help us improve our knowledge about our bodies,
health and diseases. Based on the results, scientists and doctors can invent
new medicines, tools and methods which can be much more effective and useful,
even against the most-feared cancer, HIV and AIDS.
Interesting that the best techniques and ideas
were invented for military technology, but later spreaded out. It means that we
care much more about fighting each other than curing and healing even our own
nation. For me it is a bit hard to understand, but if powerful and influential
people see it as the right way to go, let it be this way.
As I see the things, there are three main
groups of illnesses. The curable ones, the incurable ones, and the ones which
can be cured, but will appear again in a period of time. The incurable diseases
can be life-threatening, like cancer, but luckily not every case ends up in
talk a bit more about them, there are different options to choose from, when
you got one. The first is that you become devastated, not care about it at all,
and slowly but surely, it consumes you little by little. The second option is
that you want to stay alive, so you go to a doctor, and ask for help. You can
get different types of medicines, go to several therapies and treatments. Some
of my family members had different types of cancer, and as it is hardly
curable, unfortunately they met their end.
is a method for gracious death, when somebody is suffering from
something which is unquestionably lethal, like cancer or HIV/AIDS. This type of
death is requested by the suffering people, who are not able to live with the
fact that they would die in any moment, like in the last period of cancer, or
have so serious and life-threatening injuries or other illnesses.
in some countries and states it is forbidden, people firmly and completely have
the rights to their own lives and even death, which can’t be taken by others.
According to the law, people can take their own life by suicide or euthanasia.
If one’s forbidden, they choose the other desperately.
suicide, people can be prevented from suffering at the end of their life, from
low living standards, even from abusement and forced prostitution. It may be a
relief in these situations, and can free up more medical funds to others, who really
need it, who wants to stay alive.
people who live in places where euthanasia is forbidden, they invented the
„euthanasia-tourism”, which is about that they go to a country, where it is
legal and according to their wish, they die there. This is another method for
being free. Switzerland, the Netherlands.
As I see it, euthanasia is not a bad thing, as
it keeps away people from suffering and everything is happening as they want it
to be like. In front of me, the only one thing that would deter me from it if I
would be so ill, like in the last period of cancer, the fact that my beloved
ones may forgive it to me, as they could understand it, but suicide is the only
sin that God does not forgive. I know that no everyone is so religious, but
since I was four, I was taking part in different religious classes and
programs. I find it really important, as our faith may even help us to heal
back, and can do wonders.
Also, there are other alternative methods of
healing, like the homeopathic medicines, which are based on 100% natural
components, like herbs, which were used since the human appeared on Earth. Even
a few decades ago there were no special medicines, drugs, pills and other
stuff, but there were the nature, which people would believe in. There might be
some really nice samples when someone’s belief was strong enough to get well.
This is the base idea of placebo pills. They are simply made of glucose, and
mostly used as fake antidepressant pills.
Of course, if we don’t want to fill ourselves
with any kinds of pills or medicines, there are other alternatives, like
specific massages, energy therapies, essential oils, mind therapies, or if
whole body parts are injured, we can go and take up some kind of sport. As I
have problems with my spine, I have to go swimming and take part in a
physiotherapy class each week. Alone, it wouldn’t be so enjoyable, but as I’m
going as a member of a group made mostly of girls from my school and at my age,
it’s much more fun than work for my health.
To see things from the healthy side, we all
should do some sports, at least as a hobby, because it is very good for the
lungs, heart, muscles and bones, and for our whole being. At least we feel that
we are doing something for our own health, and everybody can find something
which he or she would like in a sport, and attract them to do that.
Besides the sport, we should protect our immune
system, too, as it is weak, it can’t protect us from diseases which we are in
touch every day. Wearing warmer clothes in the cold weather or drinking at
least 1.5-2 liters of liquids a day is one of the best things we can do, and it
is not so hard to fill a glass with water and drink it.
Avoiding alcohol and smoking also is a great
thing, as we don’t destroy our own body by all those harmful chemicals and
other thing. Would you eat a piece of asphalt each day, then breathe in a
bottle of air freshener? No? Then why do we smoke if the same things can be
found in a cigarette or a cigar? Well, people have strange habits in connection
with their bodies.
