The human body is a finely tuned machine. It will tell you everything you need to know to maintain it, if you simply learn to listen.
Learning to listen to your own body is to learn to tune into your intuition. When in a consultation getting health advice, take note of how you feel. Does what the practitioner is telling you feel like it rings true for you? Or do you have some resistance? You know your body better than anyone, after all you have lived in it your entire life. If a diagnosis or suggestion for medical care doesn’t sit right with you, there is nothing wrong with questioning or even getting a second opinion. Never make health care decisions that don’t feel right to you or that you feel rushed or pushed to accept.
When you have an ache or a pain, do you automatically reach for a pill? Conditioning has taken place in society and the media over the years repeatedly telling us that is always the answer.
Have an ache or pain? Take a pill. While yes, that may get rid of your pain, the odds are it will come back again and you will need another. Why? Because medications do not actually cure, what they do is cover and mask the symptom temporarily allowing you to feel better and experience relief. While there is nothing wrong with short-term intermittent use, it is far more beneficial in the long run for your overall health to seek out the root cause so that you can cure yourself for good.
Today, most of us are taught from a very young age that if you do not feel well you should go see your medical doctor. While doctors are trained in many aspects of care, medical doctors receive minimal training in nutrition or how the body responds to more natural treatment options outside of pharmaceuticals, which are generally the “go to”.
This is not to say that you should go it alone when it comes to healthcare. There are a multitude of different modalities of healing which can all assist you on your path back to wellness, gently and naturally.
