The House Clinic in Los Angeles has a preprinted exercise program for every patient struggling to overcome dizziness. From the page notes, it is reasonable to conclude that this document has matured. It seems to have been written in May 1999 with a revision in December 2003. The aims and exercises of the program make intuitive sense, except the all CAPS warning near the top of the page.
“EXERCISES OFTEN MAKE DIZZINESS WORSE IN THE BEGINNING BEFORE THE DIZZINESS GETS BETTER”
Do I want to get worse to get better? Is this modern medicine? Why is it not possible to simply move forward and upward?
I am frustrated. Today's dizziness is worse than yesterdays! It is clearly not better than two days ago. I know the source of the problem rests within. It is not with the Doctors or the House Clinic; they are among the best in the world doing what they do. I know the truth, but I do not want to know. I understand the problem, however denying it and getting angry is easier than sitting down with reality. I understand things must change; I want each step to be easier than the one before.
Life does not work that way. There are times when we had to stop, adjust, examine with fresh eyes. Our assumptions, frameworks, and even core priorities should be reviewed with a sense of humbleness and spiritual awe. New insights, different ways of working together are required – especially in the case of the 3 remaining balance nerve inputs for my soul.
I hear how “Peter addressed them, 'You know, I'm sure that this is highly irregular. Jews just don't do this-visit and relax with people of another race. But God has just shown me that no race is better than any other.'” (Acts 10.28)
My, our, balance is off. We are part of a family, a community of God's children. We must learn how to work together. Our lives depend on it. I must warn you, pursuing this goal may makes things more confusing before they become less.
