Author Essay

I think my mother is the long lost sister of Dr. Andrew Weil, author of Spontaneous Healing.  As children, my brothers and sisters and I went to the doctor only for yearly check-ups.  If we had a cough or cold, we would not be rushed to the doctor’s office.  For a few days we were treated with orange juice, chicken noodle soup, Vicks Vapo-Rub and TLC, until our bodies recovered, and this turned into our one illness of the year.  A lot of my friends, however, who were always being rushed to the doctor, were also always being diagnosed with something or other and spent the winter months on antibiotics.  Was I just generally more healthy?  Maybe.  But it seems now that to some extent my mother was mirroring the teachings of Dr. Weil, and letting our bodies respond to whatever was making us sick.
