Reader Question: Why do you spell disease with a hyphen?... example: dis-ease

Answer: The term "dis-ease" is used as a substitute for the the word disease by individuals and healing communities who are aligned with wellness. In doing this it is their intent to place emphasis on the natural state of "ease" being imbalanced or disrupted, desiring not to give too much focus to a particular ailment.

Another good example of this idea is that a person who had been diagnosed with diabetes would not say "I am a diabetic" but rather "I am challenged with diabetes." Please don't give your personal power over to a language or a dis-ease! More and more people are discovering how the words we utter and write carry power and are altering their voices accordingly.
