More on the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society

After reading about the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society, I took a closer look at some of the offerings on their Web site. Something I found really interesting is their statement that the human body is supposed to live 135 years. In addition to teaching ancient healing practices and spiritual growth, the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society incorporates physical programs intended to increase endurance and promote longevity. I really believe in the mind-body connection, so I think combining spiritual teaching with physical training makes a lot of sense.

I think the healing practices taught by the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society seem very wise as well: their alchemy addresses the underlying cause, not just the symptoms, of a disease or condition. Modern medicine is too often quick to prescribe a drug to address symptoms without examining the cause. I always try to figure out the cause before I start taking any kind of pills. I don’t even like to take aspirin for headaches. Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong, and sometimes taking a pill doesn’t really solve the problem, it just covers it up.
