5. Cowardice vs Divine victory

Human values

Anatomy  Now to C5 and the diseases of the skin.  

C5 and the diseases of the skin, acne, eczema, how does Hildegard propose to put the worlds dermatological industry out of business by addressing the internal factors which predispose to acne, eczema, even sinusitis? The use of external creams whether medically prescribed steroids or creams with essential oils is often useful in treating these conditions. Essential oils have an important feature in that they also impact on the brain and our acceptance of these conditions.

 This is why medically prescribed medicines or holistic creams often do not work is the user doubts their effectiveness. So we come to a true understanding of the placebo effect that the causes can be just as much internal and emotional as external and mechanistic. By denying this and excluding holistic treatments as 'unevidenced' the result is partial care and partial care cannot be quality care. I have seen a doctor with skin made paper thin by the lifelong application of steroid creams who would not use creams with essential oils which would clear the conditions in days.

 The skin in particular is very sensitive to our internal emotional states. The radiant beauty of the skin outside is matched by the radiant beauty within. As we age this is harder to sustain not only because of the sun damage to the skin but our internal doubts and adaptions.


Resignation, Frustration, Despair.

"I just want a quiet life and I will keep my mouth shut whether people do good or bad."

Cowardice and resignation is thought by Hildegard to give rise to skin complaints.  While attempts are made to treat these from the outside we should not neglect their internal emotional origins.  By having confidence that our condition will be cured one of the predisposing factors will be removed making a cure more likely.

Gods victory

Confidence, trust in the divine, faith in the divine

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually
strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat
Theodore Roosevelt
