After questions, Army dumps treatments
Some medicine, special bandages given to wounded soldiers shown to be inadequate or risky

“Senior Army doctors rushed medical innovations onto the battlefield without the rigorous review common in civilian hospitals, The Sun found, and sometimes changed or disregarded data from their own scientists.

In some instances, wounded soldiers were among the first humans on whom the treatments were used. And while the Army’s published research supports the treatments, some Army studies concluding that they are ineffective or dangerous haven’t been published.”

“The overall effect of the vaccines on cervical cancer remains unknown,” Dr. Carolyn J. Haug, the Journal of Norwegian Medical Association’s editor, wrote in the New England Journal editorial. “The real impact of HPV vaccination on cervical cancer will not be observable for decades.”

Gardasil is also expensive, costing about $400 to $1,000 for the necessary three doses of the vaccine. Studies have not proven how long the immunity will last and whether or not additional shots will be needed, which would raise the cost even higher. ”

The Next Step

Many of us have wondered why we feel the way we do, or how we can heal old wounds and move on to create a life of joy and abundance.  Often times we feel as if there’s some missing piece of the puzzle… something we’re doing, or not doing, or should be doing, that could be holding us back from living the life of our dreams. Ordinarily, we are only partially aware of the ideas and feelings going on within ourselves, while the rest lies hidden from us in the realms of the unconscious.

Ever since the Age of Enlightenment in the eighteenth century, Western thought has idealized the faculties of reasoning and logic above all other ways of knowing ourselves. Analytic and mechanical data hold credibility in our world of technology. As a result, most of us have lost our capacities to imagine, to feel, and to intuit information.

While there is no way musings on a blog can answer all of our inner most questions, we can at least strive to understand our most important issues and find out how we truly feel about them.  And along the way, perhaps we will be able to discover what it is that we can do, or find new tools that we can use, in order to change whatever it is we intrinsically know we need to change in order to manifest our heart’s desires.

Native American authors, and leaders in their respective tribes, Edna Manitowabi and Miriam Younchief once stood before an impressive group of executives noted for their achievements and success at a conference on the American economy and, when asked the question, “What is the next step for American business?” said, “No one can tell us what actions to take. Each of us needs to discover this on our own. First, we must know who we are and second, how we behave. Then we will know what actions to take. We will not have to ask what to do. We will simply do it.”

According to web stats and the nature of blogging, the vast majority of people who read blogs prefer to read and not comment. For those who are reading this blog, it is my sincere desire that you find something here – or on the healingdeva.com site — that will benefit you on some level, in some way.
