A Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky on medicine and poison

If art is not a medicine for the society, it is a poison.

A Quote by lifefool on medicine and rudder

What was enlightening one moment is the next moment's prison -- that's what I find. You leave the flow latching on to yesterday's medicine which is no longer the proper rudder.

A Quote by Gabrielle Roth on brown eyes, choices, courage, ears, granddaughter, grandmother, headaches, imagination, medicine, natural medicine, and shape

I've also used my imagination to help others heal themselves.  I once went to visit a Hopi rattke maker in Arizona.  It took all of my intuitive powers to find her house up high in the mountains, having to make choices of which way to go every hundred feet or so.  When I arrived, her granddaughter was crying in pain, holding her ears.  She had had a terrible earache for twenty-four hours.  Instinctively, I approached the five-year-old and told her, "I'm going to put my hand on your ear and take away the pain.  I want you to see the pain.  What does it look like?  What shape is it?  What color?  What does it sound like?  Does it smell?  How would you feel if you touched it?  Now I want you to imagine it leaving your ear and entering my hand."  She looked up at me with huge brown eyes full of trust.  I put my hand on her ear, held it there a few minutes, and then ran to the door and blew the pain out of my hand and closed the door.  Within seconds the pain was gone.  Her grandmother, the rattle maker, stood there grinning from ear to ear.  "That's what my grandfather would have done," she said, "He was a shaman."

In a few minutes, the room seemed to fill with people.  Someone placed a chair in the middle of the room and people took turns sitting in it, asking for a healing.  Headaches, sores, back pains, and so on.  In each case I trusted myself to do what came naturally.  It's a day I'll never forget, as I discovered the range of my healing powers as they were drawn out by people for whom healing power was natural medicine.

Imagination is powerful.  Imagination is healing.  All you need is the courage to visualize what should be, and then give yourself to its creation.  The result may not be what you expected, but it will be right.

A Quote by Earon on science, research, profound, truth, process, education, medicine, and health

Science too often trivializes the profound, answering questions that are very different from the ones that were asked.  To formulate a question suitable for scientific research too often requires us to forget what it was that we really wanted to know.

A Quote by Dharma Singh Khalsa on medicine, food, truth, and self restoration

Guru Arjun tells us that the truth we seek is within ourselves, and I agree. The answers to many of our greatest desires, needs, and longings are inside. We only need to know how to retrieve them.

The most powerful vehicle for retrieving our longed for answers is applied intelligence, which is the combination of information and experience. Applied intelligence brings true wisdom because it includes experience, usually on a deep level.

A Quote by Walter Russell on health, healing, disease, unease, life, death, acid, acidity, alkalinity, sick, man, thinking, think, thought, consciousness, medicine, body, and matter

When it becomes a part of every man's thinking that a single thought can change the polarity of our entire body toward either life or death - and can likewise change its entire chemistry toward increasing alkalinity or acidity to strengthen it or weaken it - or can change the shape of every corpuscle of matter in the entire body in the direction of either growth or decay - then the medical profession will radically change both its principles and its practices with the ailment of bodies.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, ego, and medicine

In all technai or arts (medicine perhaps most of all), there is a self-exhilaration on the part of the practitioner (the intoxication of the ego with its own potency) which is infectious:  the patient enjoys a placebo-effect which redounds to the ego of the "artist."

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on medicine

I have endeavored to show that there is no real service of humanity in the profession [of medicine] and that it is injurious to mankind.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on health, healthcare, healthy, medicine, lifestyle, and tompeters

STOP ... using the term "healthcare."
START ... using the term "health."

Better HEALTH is the goal—and if we did "it" (focus on "health"), then "healthcare" would be far, far, far less necessary. (Understatement.)

Tom Peters (1942 -)
