I hope this article, “Dementia: Thorns, Thistles, and Sweat” will be an interesting read.
More importantly, it is written and shared to bring an awareness as well as hope.
Humanity is riddled with diseases, disabilities, and undue disasters in our lives. The origin of dementia is embedded in the midst of the complexities of thorns, thistles, and sweat.
… disobedience, disregard, and disrespect for the guidelines and mandate from our Creator.
As it was in the beginning, so it shall be in the end. The Law or Principle of First Mentioned (where something was first Biblically mentioned), Law of Attraction, and laws that govern humanity are set in motion.
The Original State Before Thorns, Thistles, and Sweat.
Picture this …
- Everything perfect at creation, the mandate was given to mankind to have dominion over the earth and animals, to be fruitful and multiply.
- The basic necessities of life were provided in an atmosphere conducive to man’s wellbeing, without harsh environmental conditions.
- There were no diseases, shortage of supplies, nor struggle to till the soil. The earth reproduced according to the cycle set in motion.
- There were no thorns, thistles, and sweat through hardship, illnesses, and anxieties … no worries about tomorrow or sorrows of the past.
Something changed all that and today we suffer the consequences of hard labor, countless ailments, and discord among every aspect of humanity.
We consistently labor to produce and nurture life in our bodies and the environment as a whole. We also labor to end life when it is an inconvenience for us.
Personal growth and development come through toiling endlessly to attain the level of success we desire for contentment or to impress and outperform others.
At times our minds become entangled and stressed from trying to keep up with the noise and traffic within and around us. Such a calamity!
Dementia and Its Origins
The origin of dementia diseases is sometimes reported as being unknown, likewise the cure. There’s no secret that this is due to short-term memory loss from unfavorable activities in the brain.
Alzheimer’s is the number one cause. What seems to be unknown is why this happens, how and if it can be reversed. Reports change constantly. The naysayers, for the most part, continue to say nay.
Those who disagree with them continue to make strides and struggle to get their messages across to those who desperately need the information and will listen. What if there’s hope?
This is not usually an easy task as efforts are made to shut them down as “quacks” trying to upset the status quo. Their message is on the rise regardless as success stories will be sought after and eventually found.
It’s interesting to note that a number of medical doctors have documented proven results for many years now. Their clients and loved ones share their stories of lives being improved from natural treatments.
In her book, Awakening from Alzheimer’s and other works, Peggy Sarlin is bringing awareness to these realities. She is not alone on this journey; others have also come forward as they search and discover solutions.
There are different approaches and methods used by each medical professional, yet they come to the same conclusion … we can recognize the symptoms, prevent, and restore the deterioration in the brain to a great degree.
It’s time to turn things around and eradicate the escalation of dementia and other memory impairments by promoting preventative and restorative measures. Quality of life can be enjoyed for longer periods.
The same message is true for many of the other diseases and disorders we struggle with for decades and even centuries.
Approach to Dementia and Other Diseases
Scientific minds are struggling and spending billions of dollars, hours, and countless years researching for cures …
… cures for diseases SOMETIMES caused by mismanagement of our bodies and resources at our disposal! At other times, we seem to be taking all the necessary precautions.
Some of the preventative measures are right before our eyes, given to us freely in the atmosphere and in the earth! Sure, there will always be diseases people will die from daily.
When there’s an approach to recognize symptoms of disorders and take action, some may be prevented or reversed.
The use of excessive and unnecessary drugs in the body is destructive to those subjected to partake of or imprisoned by them. The causes and claims of solutions are way above and beyond anything mentioned in this article. It is much more complex and continues to baffle the mind.
Evidence of decline in health and optimal functioning of the mind and body is attributed to old age, natural processes, and unknown reasons.
Some “known” causes are disguised and/or fought against as those who draw attention to them are branded as infiltrators. Much effort is made to bring cases against them and shut them down because of the natural alternatives they bring to light.
The masses are targeted to pull the wool over their eyes, pushing them further into darkness and utter ignorance by those who have the upper hand. This is done at the expense of precious lives wasting away as the clock ticks.
Hopefully, the scales will fall from our eyes, light switches will come on in our minds, and a desire for solutions will be at the forefront. May hearts be changed as people come forward and present another side of the story boldly in the face of intense opposition, and the desire for greed will not prevail.
We look forward to the day that the message and practice to “first, do no harm” will be the vehicle that drives the heart of those committed to caring for the sick and helpless.
Thorns, Thistles, and Sweat: The Struggle
This struggle is as a result of the fall for the lie to be alienated from our Creator and His Divine plan for humanity. Thorns, thistles, and sweat collectively causes the struggle that has resulted from that Law of First Mentioned.
Not only does the earth struggle to bring forth the sweetness it once yielded delightfully, but also the human body which was created from the earth.
The essential elements and nutrients our bodies need for optimal health are produced in the earth. This process naturally supplies them to our food source when not depleted through mismanagement and adverse environmental conditions.
As a result, we truly become what we eat!
Until we turn back to move forward, we will be dominated by thorns, thistles, and sweat. Instead, we should have dominion over all those things putting them under subjection to ourselves as superiors.
It is suboptimal to have dominion over other people. That was never meant to be, according to the Law of First Mentioned. We should be merging ecosystems with each other for the upliftment of humanity with unconditional love.
The Law of First Mentioned: Original Manuscript
GENESIS 3:17-19, KING JAMES VERSION
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast harkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it, cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and though shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return.
Thorn. Denoting sin, sorrow and hardship, the thorn is one of the most ancient symbols in the world; together with the rose, it represents pain and pleasure, and the thorn is the emblem of Christ’s passion, as with the crown of thorns.
Matthew 7:16 “… Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

“The crown of thorns vividly symbolized the curse of sin being placed on Jesus’ head. It immediately takes the reader back to Genesis, reminding us of why Jesus went to the cross, to take the penalty for sin on our behalf.”
The Bible refers to “thistles and prickles” as a symbol of desolation or wilderness and about 20 different words relate to some kind of prickly or thorny plant. They are one of the most common wildflowers in Israel, rapidly taking over any open patch of wasteland or untended meadows.
Noun, a widely distributed herbaceous plant of the daisy family, which typically has a prickly stem and leaves and rounded heads of flowers.
Milk thistle is also known as Mary thistle or holy thistle. It is mainly used to treat liver problems, but some people claim it can lower cholesterol and help manage type 2 diabetes.
Noun, moisture exuded out of the pores of the skin, typically in profuse quantities as a reaction to heat, physical exertion, fever, or fear.
Sweat is also known as perspiration and is made almost completely of water, with tiny amounts of other chemicals like ammonia, salts, and sugars. (Ammonia and urea are left over when your body breaks down protein.)
