There are two types of ailments. Infectious is one.
That means something outside of me made its way in.
It may act with a consciousness all of its own.
Pharmaceutical treatments may make me drug prone.
Logic would seem to dictate that’s where to begin.
Both enter from the outside to make an end run.
Chronic ailments, however, occur from inside.
In this case, it’s the body that makes itself sick.
Why on earth would my body attack me this way?
Has my mistreatment of it caused it to betray?
There’s some misunderstanding. To be specific,
On a cellular level, something is denied.
All it needs is some balance. It gets that within.
Everything that the body needs, it has on store.
If it doesn’t, it makes it from things that I eat
And from infinite wisdom. Indeed, I’m complete
In the sense that my body is its own doctor.
The best cure for most ailments is under my skin.
