I'm glad we're going to discuss this chapter. The diet Linda describes here has raised a lot of questions on food for me.

I love this chapter. I am so busy though, i'm into this other book in my spare time, I hope it okay if I pop in and out now and then, I just haven't had a inspiration to say much but I love reading what you write Randall.

------------------
“It’s an interesting thing. Seeing Kuan Yin relating to a flower so intently. She's not just looking at it; she's interacting with it…I’m seeing how the act of relating to a flower appears to be so simple. Yet, it takes a tremendous amount of courage to make such a “simple” act important. Now, the lotus is floating away.”

This is a very helpful chapter. In it, Linda dispels some long-time health myths. We have all been told to stay out of the rain, or else we would catch pneumonia...and this chapter starts out with a classic Linda poem in which Linda as a child is talking to her dolls and scolding them while pointing her finger at them and saying, "You'll catch pee-nee-monia for sure and certain." So cute! Linda goes on to say that unless you are born with an affliction related to the ASC and/or sixth house of health in
Pisces or Gemini or a planet afflicted by a malefic in Pisces or Gemini, you will never succumb to pee-nee-monia or even pneumonia. The same goes for lung cancer. Linda says that no one (even those astrologically afflicted) has to worry about lung cancer from smelling a nearby cig. Just like finding the smell of alcohol offensive still doesn't mean we will become an alcoholic from smelling it...or the stench of butchered flesh for a vegetarian. Of course, smoking will not benefit one's body in any way, but you cannot get lung cancer without the birth chart indicator(s).

This chapter is a strong one against the medical theocracy. Linda tells of how doctors were charlatans for many years, until the AMA and the FDA were formed and licensing requirements created. This gave physicians almost a priest-like status, demanding a respect akin to worship. But then the pendulum began swinging in the other direction, and now people routinely pursue alternative health. Few would argue that medicine has become big business, and as such, often the bottom line is more important than the health of big medicine's parishioners. Linda wants to tell of the many tragedies caused by unfeeling, cold, sterile (pun intended) medical ministers, but she first wants to clarify that doctors who set bones, replace limbs severed in accidents, repair scarred and disfigured faces, treat severe burns, remove bullets or diseased and ruptured organs, and start beating hearts again after they have stopped deserve our respect, support, and affection. She goes on to list some professional and compassionate ones--like the one who saved her son Michael's life. She says what we should want is a happy medium between the two extremes. She wishes it could be like it was once in China. They had three types of doctors. The least of them merely cured your dis-ease. The second diagnosed it right before it manifested. And the most prized was the doctor that kept you healthy and well. This is as it should be. But modern doctors only want to suppress symptoms; if they were into preventative medicine, they wouldn't make any money! In China, if a patient died, a lantern was hung outside of the doctor's door. To many lanterns would be the end of that doctor's practice. Doctors who complain now of malpractice suits and high insurance rates would be in shock of early China's system--which placed all sickness squarely on the shoulders of the doctors. Linda wished it would be neither one extreme or the other...but that both doctor and patient take equal responsibility for health. It reminds me of an episode of Extreme Foods, where he went to China and had a cold. The pharmacies are split into medicine and holistic doctors. They recognize the value in both. He showed what they do in China for a natural cure for his cold.

Linda found it interesting that doctors take the Hippocratic Oath "to do no harm," yet they fail to follow the rest of Hippocrates' counsel--like not operating on a part of the human body represented by the Sign the Moon is transitting. The founding father of medicine wrote in his diaries, "He who practices medicine without the benefit of the movement of the stars and planets is a fool." Linda gives several real-life examples of what can happen when not following this cardinal rule of medical astrology. She goes on to explain in detail how the Moon affects surgeries. Medicine treats the dis-ease. Astrology and homeopathy treat the patient who has the dis-ease. Big difference. Medical astrology is more concerned with diagnosis and prevention. The stars incline but do not impel, so we can take preventative measures to override those natural inclinations; otherwise, those possibilities might become magnetized into realities.

Linda talks about the mental and emotional cause of dis-ease. One of the examples she gives is anger. It creates bile, which over time can form gallstones. According to Linda, one's chart contains not only our susceptibility to certain dis-eases and ailments, and not only the organs comprising our weak links, but also the mental and emotional attitudes responsible...as well as the timing of posible illness, so that a change in mental and emotional behavior can prevent it. Likewise, one's chart can show which mental and emotional attitudes must be changed to reverse the progress of, and lend to, swifter healing of the dis-ease. Sometimes, your own instincts can cause such a reversal, and doctors call that "spontaneous remission." Astrology can analyze character, personality, and physical/emotional strengths, but it is equally helpful as a timing device.

Linda is quite specific that what we eat and what we think creates who we are. She says we should become vegetarian, but only first upon doing it for the right reasons. She speaks about the Catholic church suggesting followers to celebrate Lent by abstaining from red meat. Linda has her criticisms of the Catholic church, but she goes on to give many praises. Humans are contaminated, and it takes time to gradually become vegetarian, so that our digestive systems can be returned to their ideal state. She says this is best done over three five-year periods. The first five years, eliminate red meat. Throughout the process, one day per week, take in only fruit and fruit juice to help cleanse the body. The second period, eliminate fish, fowl, and eggs. The third period, eliminate all vegetables that grow under the ground. You can still partake of breads, cereals, milk, and cheese. Then eliminate all vegetables and dairy. You are now a fruitarian. One criticism I have is that Linda isn't specific about what constitutes a fruit. Basically, anything with seeds in it is a fruit. Linda goes on to describe a plan for children. Infants have inherited the "sins of the flesh," and so they can't just be made into instant vegetarians. I think it is very interesting that Linda chose this verbiage. I think she is hinting at some mysteries she intended to unveil in 12th Night Secrets. I think she is hinting that in Eden Earth, Adam's sin was that he killed an animal and ate its flesh. This seems to be further supported by Linda's assertions that animals in the so-called food chain are mimicking humans and that there wasn't such killing in Eden. She also talks of vegetarian chimps eating meat to assert dominance.

Linda goes on a rant against hunting, and I shouldn't really use the term "rant," since I agree with what she said. She shares with us the Cherokee Indian legend of Snow Foot. Snow Foot would hunt no animals, and deer who were about to die would come to Snow Foot and lie before him, look up at him, and then die, so that their bodies could be used by him to stay warm in the winter and to provide moccasins for his feet...as a thanks for letting them and their families live out their lives fully and in peace.

Linda talks about the couple where the man was 40 and the woman almost 50--both told they could not bear offspring. But they didn't listen. She put her man on a carrot diet (knowing that rabbits in captivity have many offspring), and lo and behold (but to no surprise to them), she became pregnant and had a healthy baby girl. Doctors were probably stunned. But Mother Nature knows best.

Linda briefly talks about how to use the stars to save money on haircuts...or to grow your hair much faster...before listing a number chart for health (based on the birthdate). Mine wasn't entirely accurate, but it had many points that were--so much so that it was quite scary to see. I'm definitely a believer! She also talks about sympathetic parts of the body and how this concept is related to health/dis-ease. And she gets into individuual colors, herbs, and gemstones. Yes, as a number 1, I'm into the color purple. Can't you tell?

Linda ends the chapter talking about a cure for cancer and how ethe pineal gland is still soft like clay until age 12. And her last three words are my fave words in the world (next to "I Love You")...expect a miracle.

I believe some of us are born with some health karma too that is why some people suffers more even when they have done nothing as such to defile their health by indulging into bad eating,drinking and smoking habits

Linda talks about that in the Karma chapter.

"All deaths are suicides, do you realize that? Every single one. The only distinction is that, with some people, suicide is a subconscious choice, and with others it's a conscious choice. Otherwise, those who commit suicide and those who succumb to accident, illness or "old age," die for exactly the same reason: belief in the inevitability of death." Linda Goodman

I feel sick after eating seafood and red meat. Chicken I can tolerate ONLY if it's thickly seasoned and I can't taste the meat. Or else I want to puke my guts up.

My mom's a dietician. She makes me eat my chicken

strong believer? or physically necessary for you to eat meat? we do need to consume protein to have a healthy functioning system and most ( emphasis on most ) can easily extract the amount of protein needed by vegetable sources... however, there is a percentage of the populas who have difficulty in absorbing protein efficiently and require the extra punch that meat can give them...

i'm curious - has anyone tried to purchase ( and ultimately use ) the tonics Linda suggests? if so, did you notice a positive change?
i never have, the "import" charges for certain products into Canada is positively criminal at times...

strong believer....humans are omnivores which means our bodies are designed to digest meat just like veggies...i also am a strong believer of eating meat because of the human history of hunting animals to consume them and use their skins and bones

thank you for your explanation nicki... you are correct - humans can be omnivores...
the only part i could disagree with is the human history aspect of it...

interesting little side tangent - how many here were/are aware that the hippo is mainly vegetarian but when necessary ( due to seasonal changes ) can and will eat meat...
