your well-being is being challenged
From the environmental pollution of the air we breathe to the systemic poisoning of our waters, soil, food, and medicine, it’s not at all a mystery to me why people feel anywhere from “blah” to awful. Uncomfortable symptoms—and the categorization of said symptoms, called “disease”—are simply your body’s natural responses to something blocking your biological flow. If and when those blockages are correctly identified and dealt with, one’s natural balance is instantly—almost magically—restored.
Because everything is connected, including all the parts of you.
Your “disease” is just a group of symptoms, developed by your body to attempt to deal with a toxin or toxic load (be it emotional, environmental, physical, etc.) that is interfering with the natural and organized flow of your bodily systems.
Your body speaks only one language: Symptoms.
It is desperately trying to communicate to you that something is wrong and it needs to course-correct. If it feels attacked by something, it will produce inflammatory symptoms to defend itself and remove the offending agent by creating inflammation to get the toxicity out of the body through sweat, a rash, a runny nose, bowel or urinary excrement, vomit, exhalations, sneezing, watery eyes…
For instance, if a particle of dust enters your eye, your Mind-Body will react by producing inflammation to get the dust out by swelling your eye with healing blood and lymphatic fluid, so there’s more tissue surface area to deliver nutrients and remove the toxin, and it will also produce tears (water) to flush out the particle. Brilliant! This is not an “eye disease”—it’s just your eye attempting to stay healthy by removing the offending agent. Temporarily uncomfortable? Yes. Something to lose sleep over? No. But, if you went to your doctor at the height of the eye inflammation—not realizing you just have a piece of dust in your eye—it would appear to be some sort of eye disease and you may receive a worrisome and incorrect diagnosis—and an ineffective at best and harmful at worst “treatment”—for your condition.
This is where I can help. I analyze your “symptom story”—what happened? What is the threat, where is it coming from, how is it affecting you. and how best do we resolve it? And more importantly, I help you feel relief through harmonizing bodily imbalances and educating you about what’s really going on so you can reframe your condition, which then empowers you to resolve it more quickly and easily. Your body is intelligent, self-healing, and it’s doing its best with what its got. I can help you fill in the gaps and move things along.
