HEALING HERBS: Holistic healing for men
In my opinion, more love and respect must abundantly flow for men in the world but moreso for Barbadian men. This flow of love is necessary because Barbadian men continue to encounter some grave circumstances.
I have gathered that women continue to question the trustworthiness of men, asking where they can find a good man among our population. These are unholistic, worrying concerns.
Secondly, men are still being accused of not taking full control of their lives, especially in the area of health.
It appears as though some men are refusing to take positive advice when faced with health challenges.
This negative thinking must change if holistic healing including silent doctors is to occur.
It is also said that embarrassment causes this negative thinking. However, while some health challenges may appear to be embarrassing, they are not new to health experts. Therefore, professional advice and silent doctors are available to help all men.
Diabetes, obesity, impotence, erectile dysfunction, gout, prostate problems and high blood pressure are some of these pressing concerns.
Additionally, most men are proud of their genitals and if they malfunction, all hell breaks loose.
Some men may become depressed, worried, angry and even suicidal.
They should instead focus on what can be done to correct their problem.
Healing involves bringing problems out into to the open and not focusing on what women think about them or their genitalia. Men must remember that women with problems normally pursue professional solutions.
A word to the wise is enough.
