Mel: And even with the medicines. It is easy to make drugs. All you do is mix a bunch of chemicals together that are dangerous and you will get drugs. Now drugs are bad. Yes, they might be good to cure a disease, but all they do is move that disease to another spot.
WHAT?? There is so much misinformation here that this is just word salad. All you do is mix a bunch of chemicals together? Where did you learn Chemistry at? Chemistry is very important. Your body uses chemicals to communicate. Chemicals can be natural or artificially produced. That doesn't make anything bad. There are tons of people who don't, for example, produce enough potassium, insulin, or many other things at normal levels. Anything outside of safe levels (too little or too much) is where the danger comes in. There are chemicals naturally in the air that would kill you in large doses. Carbon monoxide, for example. It's naturally in the air but can build up in your blood. Meanwhile, the same vitamins in the fruit you can overdose on and even THEY can kill you. So something isn't safe just because it's "natural".
Mel: But Jah does not make drugs.
What does this even mean?
drug - a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body.
(clearly, someone told Mel that all drugs were bad. But he smokes and weed is a natural drug)
Mel: Jah makes natural things. Nature helps us have a healthy diet. The herb for the healing of man. Herb is natural and can be eaten or drunk. I too was a man like IPXninja that was told by a western doctor that I am allergic to herbs.
watch yourself. You're making it sound like I said doctors told me I was allergic to herbs. That would be a lie. I am lactose intolerant to some degree, but I combat that with Lactaid which contains lactase which is a natural enzyme that helps break down lactose. I am not allergic to herbs.
Also, you overlook the fact that many people have allergies to natural plants, fruits, and nuts. I know a couple of people allergic to nuts, one allergic to oranges and mangoes (sad), and people who are allergic to shellfish. The "outdated" (according to Mel) OT warns against shellfish and other types of meat for this reason.
Mel: But this did not stop I from eating herbs. Some herbs do cause allergic reaction. But the one western doctor says that all we have to do is drink lots of water and we will have no allergies as drinking lots of water gives no need for antihistamines.
NO... that is what YOUR doctor told YOU for YOUR case. It really depends on what's wrong. You can't give someone else your treatment for your diagnosis. There are different issues that can affect the sinuses. If your sinuses are lacking the proper level of moisture that can be a problem. But you can also get sinus infections. Different issues have different risk factors. I had a sinus infection before. But people need to be careful because if you need antibiotics then you NEED antibiotics. A healthy diet is good to lower your risk factors and help the body not to have so many battles to fight which allows the body to fight fewer battles more efficiently.
Mel: I find that allergies to be a lie because I drink lots of water and if I don't drink water then the allergies kick in, which just needs lots of water to take it away.
See above. Allergies are NOT a lie and it is amazing that you would judge all allergies by your own limited experience.
Peanut allergies can be especially serious and can kill you. So just because something is natural doesn't make it safe for everyone.
Mel: But what I want to say is that science is good if it is related to the Bible and is in agreement with it. Also taking medication made from dangerous chemicals does have dangerous side effects. Therefore I and I stay safe and away from pharmaceuticals. Nature is healing. Bless
As I said, the people in ancient times, who wrote the bible, were familiar with things like viruses and bacteria. They simply had different names for it and couldn't see it so they often grouped much of it in the same class. And more importantly, they didn't have as many tools to treat it. So you cannot limit treatment to what the bible says. That would be foolish. No one in the bible ever said "don't learn anything new" or "don't study nature". The bible NEVER EVER makes itself out to be a science book, much less does it claim to be the only science book you will ever need. So do not blame any ignorance on the bible because the bible does not teach people to be ignorant.
