Regardless of whether someone is rude to you or not, just reciprocate as nicely and calmly as you can. Doing so doesn’t imply that you’re a fake person – it’s indicative of your emotional maturity. Treat everyone as you wish to be treated, namely with kindness and respect. Do this consciously, and you’ll see how the negativity around you will dissipate as if it was never there in the first place.
By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives.
In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
