In early blogs, we considered a profound Definition of Health, a rare notion in medicine. It actually becomes a yardstick or measure of whether any activity or healing endeavor is really helping or hurting. Meditating on this is important for every individual, no matter how blood tests and diagnostics come out.
On the mental level, the definition of health can be described as Selfless Creativity. Selfless refers both to considering others outside of yourself but also including yourself. Self-sacrifice itself, even for greater good, is NOT truly a description of Health. And Creativity refers to seeing things anew, whether a truly new artistic idea or a synthesis of disparate ideas seen in a new way. The combination of these two mind activities bring profound fulfillment, a sense of purpose, a reason for being, self-validation, and even a kind of enlightenment.
This is not an attainment. It is a state of mind, noticed almost incidentally, as a result of optimizing health holistically in all other ways discussed in this blog. Health is not mere absence of disease! Even when there is chronic disease, this optimized state of health can reach into the mental plane! Purpose is a matter of focus. It is a matter of where attention is drawn.
The discussion about GMO begins to border on this kind of selfless focus. We can protect how we eat, but we need to work to improve the environment in which our food is grown. This is outside ourselves and attending to a greater good.
Caring about parts of the world beyond our limited neighborhood is another focus that expands us as individuals. In truth, All are Connected. As we expand our Consciousness, we join our individual voice to the collective voices of All. This is not a religious notion per se; it is a simple description of a truth of how we know the Universe to work!
As an example — and as a brazen plug for our nonprofit project — take a moment and consider a small town outside Kossoh Town, near Freetown, Sierra Leone. Coherence Apps LLC reached out via Facebook to West Africa when the Ebola epidemic erupted. Knowing that eRemedies could help, we fought hard with local government authorities to bring rapid relief to Ebola sufferers directly via cellphone! In the end, informally, three cases were indeed symptom-free within a matter of hours!
As Ebola wound down, we realized there were other desperate needs in the local populace. As a result, we turned our Ebola-focused nonprofit EmergencyDr. Org (a 501( c)3) corporation toward raising money to create a local urgent care clinic to deal with acute ailments and injuries, as well as childbirth and childbirth complications.
Kossoh Town is quite a distance, over very poor roads, away from the nearest Chinese hospital. So local elders encouraged the development of this facility. The local medical and dental boards have approved it. A team of 18 volunteers worked hard to build the facility, as you can see in the picture at the start of this blog. In addition, there are local nurses volunteering their services.
At the moment, the facility is nearly completed, and fund-raising is focussed on bringing homeopathic practitioners to Sierra Leone to provide training in how to use homeopathy and MDinyourHand.

However, my point of describing this project is to provide an example of Expanded Focus. There are millions, billions, of such opportunities on the planet! The idea is to pay attention to what is going on in the world, see opportunities, creatively find a way to connect. As you do so, you are finding Purpose beyond your self. We all have a reason why we are on this planet. And fulfillment comes from acting on this Purpose.
[Remember, MDinyourHand is not merely an informational website. If you have an acute ailment such as an athletic injury, bites or stings, a cat or dog with acute health problems, even traveler’s diarrhea, malaria, typhoid, or cholera, you can use your cellphone or computer DIRECTLY to get rapid relief! Just answer some questions, and the expert system chooses the most appropriate MP3 eRemedy for you to play on your device. You can expect relief within mere minutes or a few hours.
