I Strongly Felt I Wanted to Publish Before My Complete Improvement
When I first thought about sharing my observations by writing a book, I knew through my personal experience up until now, I was only providing a partial solution, especially for the autoimmune disorders. I wanted to offer a complete one, and I thought I should wait until I could get off the autoimmune arthritis medications. And then, it just so happened that I reread one of my favorite books, which deeply shaped my understanding of kindness: the translated title would be By Giving, Thou Shalt Receive.
This book was written by the Romanian philosopher and writer Nicolae Steinhardt, who later in his life became a hermit. One of the ideas expressed in the chapter that bears the same name as the title was to try to give others something you don’t already fully possess. This seemed very strange, and I read the chapter a few times. Finally, I think I understood it: in looking for solutions for yourself, you can find answers that can help others, and sharing those answers, even if partial, like projecting them into a mirror, will bring you back more knowledge and solutions! And that’s very true in what followed.
As I was starting to write these pages and share some facts that proved helpful to me, I was going deeper into the topic, and more questions came to my mind, followed by more consistent answers that further proved even more helpful to me. Noticing this, I was more determined to finish this book even before I had the complete improvement answers, because I wanted other affected people to benefit sooner.
This blog will give me the opportunity to update the readers about my further progress or changes and to disclose some new observations as well.
By keeping up with the new information and continuing to read and research relevant literature, I will probably acquire more knowledge that I will also like to share.
