Self Healing: Should we shave the rabbits?

huntington.tif

Dr. John P. Huntington, D.C.

That’s right – shave, not save. What do you think? It does get pretty hot by June. Mightn’t it be humane to try to cool the cotton-tails by giving them all buzz-cuts?

“Of course not,” you say. “They are adapted to the desert – besides, the ‘catch, cut and release’ would be difficult at best!”

Goofy, I know. But that’s the point. They, like us, have adapted to our surroundings over time. Any changes made to natural lifestyles and customs need to be well thought out before being put in place.

Unfortunately, we often pay lip service to “the beautiful web of life we are all a part of,” then completely ignore that truth and proceed to ‘leap before we look.’

The results often poison our land, water, and bodies with wrong actions (we are told to eat margarine instead of real butter, then find margarine causes heart disease) and disastrous advise (we are told to ‘run from the sun’, then find this makes us Vitamin D deficient, reducing immune function and increasing cancer risk).

Adding to that sorrow is the fact that most of the time a money motive drives these arrogant actions – rarely is it strictly foolishness!

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine said, “Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illness will suddenly appear.” That’s a great one, and probably worth reading again.

Now, the good news. We are here, now, so we are clearly doing more than a few things right! And, by adding a few more ‘right things’ we can make measurable improvements in health and happiness.

The purpose of this column is give you lifestyle tips that are free and fun, and which can lessen our ‘small daily sins against nature.’

Dr. Huntington practices Chiropractic, Biomedical Acupuncture and Physiotherapy in Oracle, Az. He enjoys gardening and has an organic-fed egg and broiler business with his son, Andrew. 520-896-9844 huntingtonchiro@hotmail.com
