We hear all the time that we’re spending far too much time online. That we’re connected to the world but disconnected from one another. That screen time is killing our eyes and rotting our brains. Well, some of that might be true. But, that’s not the whole story.
Thanks to our online world, we’re able to learn about preventative measures and even about cures that we would never learn about from our AMA and FDA compliant doctors and medical community.
And please don’t think that this a doctor bashing diatribe. It’s not that at all. Doctors, like many other licensed professionals, are limited by regulations, insurance policies, and the fear of lawsuits or losing their license if they don’t play by the rules.
Of course, none of this changes that fact, that learning about health and disease prevention is not likely to happen in a doctor’s office. So, thank God we have the internet and that we still have some form of “Freedom of Speech” so that we can seek out information provided by others or so we can broadcast information of our choosing.
So, to those who would tell us we’re online too much, maybe that time spent browsing and sharing is giving someone the information they need to naturally overcome cancer, diabetes, or an auto-immune disease. And, maybe, just maybe, if more people shared this type of information, we’d have a healthier planet and fewer people suffering from diseases that modern medicine can’t or won’t cure?
