Why I Won’t Wear This T-Shirt
Let’s talk about the t-shirt and why I threw it away.
I donate blood, not because I’m such a great person, but because I have high iron levels, most likely caused by my iron-rich diet. And the best way to reduce those levels is good, old-fashioned bloodletting. Yep, that’s the best medical science has for us. At least someone might benefit from my donation.
Did you know that too much iron in your blood can cause an enlarged liver, abdominal pain, increased heart rate, joint pain, and fatigue? The next time you visit your healthcare professional, you may want to ask about having your ferritin levels checked.
Everything done to promote “the fight against breast cancer” only promotes the disease.
It’s no surprise that this horrible disease continues to proliferate.
Additionally, LOA teaches us that fighting against anything is the wrong approach. I’m reminded of a quote by Mother Teresa. She said, “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”
Mother Teresa knew that we need to stand for what we want, not for what we don’t want. We want peace. We don’t want war. We want a cure, not more cancer. The Susan G Komen, Race for the Cure, gets it right!
Why is this concept so difficult for us to learn and practice? If you’ve been a client of mine, you know that I discourage fighting against any condition. The reason is simple. Fighting takes energy, and if you’re using all of your energy in the fight, you’re exhausting your body and diminishing your ability to get well.
It’s only when we surrender to where we are that we can regain our strength and then work proactively toward recovery.
The pink ribbon and the call to fight is why this t-shirt ended up in the trash.
