This morning as I turned over in my sleep, I heard a story on the morning news cast. The story talk about yet another birth control method for today's "modern woman"
Now, most women might applaud this effort, but I for one am concerned. The new drug Lybrel, was marketed as the next step in birth control. The troubling thing to me though, is the fact that women will no longer have a cycle at all.
Don't misunderstand, I agree, having a cycle can be an inconvenience. It can also be downright annoying and painful, but, it is there for a reason.
Each month a woman's body is prepared to give birth to a child. When this does not happen the toxins and wastes are removed from her body through the process of menstruation.
If menstruation no longer happens, what happens to these toxins and wastes?
I personally believe that our bodies have been designed to do exactly what they are supposed to do when they are supposed to do it. When we try to improve on that by way of synthetic means, I truly believe that we do more harm than good.
Many times we find ourselves in the doctors office with ailments that could be alleviate through very simple means; better diet, exercise, more water, more fiber. Yet, when the doctor tells us tht this is what we need to do to eliminate our symptoms, we immediately look for other possible cures. Being the good doctors that they are, they accomodate our lack of self control and prescribe mediations, synthetically made, to stop our high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
The problem is tha these medications are synthetic and our livers and kidneys must now adjust in order to metabolize them. As a result, we now not only have high cholesterol or diabetes, we also have kidney problems and liver problems.
Is it really a good idea to eliminate our bodies natural ability to eliminate wastes by not using self control in our diets or allowing natural processes such as menstruation to occur? What do you think?
