I think it’s time I tell people about those strange articles you’ve seen from me. I research and write about factors, sometimes unusual ones, that influence how people behave. On the surface most of it seems outlandish. I agree. Only upon closer look and view from a new perspective, these factors gain credibility. I’m a skeptic. I don’t believe new things easy. Only after I tested this or that idea on myself and received positive results, only then do I apply any validity to the idea. Then, I ask friends, family, sometimes complete stranger, to experiment with me. When all this is tested, only then do I put words on paper. Let me share an example. I knew about reflexology points on the feet. I knew that all organs in the body are connected to specific points on the feet or ankles. But this whole idea only began to shape up as something valid when I examined the feet of my step father. At the time we were told that his blood test showed he had cancer. Only the doctors could not locate it. Three times they examined (biopsy) his pancreas and found nothing. I pressed with the tip of my thumb in different places on his foot. Everything seemed ok. Until I reached some point where he just screamed from pain. He felt such sharp pain, he thought I punctured his foot with a kitchen knife. We all looked at the reflexology foot chart and located the spot where he had such sharp paint. It was his pancreas. Nobody wanted to believe that his pancreas was in trouble. After all, they did three biopsy tests on it and found nothing. After several more weeks, the doctors decided to do biopsy of his pancreas from his back. Now they found it. It was around year-end holidays. Doctors took vacations, days off, and were not eager to schedule his surgery right away. My step father was kind of shy and did not want to push. When they finally operated on him, the cancer has spread to all the organs and it was too late. If my stepfather and his doctors paid any attention to my unprofessional findings, they would have found the problem two months sooner, and perhaps he might have a fighting chance. That incident taught me to pay attention to what the feet are communicating to us.
There you have it. It may sound odd, but I know what I’m talking about. Don’t believe me? Test me.
