Do you remember when you were a child playing outdoors, and you fell and skinned your knee or scraped your elbow? You most likely bled a little bit, cleaned the wound, and had a bandage put over it. Your scratch, scrape, or gash would eventually scab over and heal. That is a perfect example of how the body was designed to heal itself.
Have you ever pondered the current symptoms you or a loved one are facing, and asked the question, “Why are there so many health-related symptoms, disease states, and emotional or psychological traumas causing dysfunction in my (their) health and well-being?” Many people blame age, genetics, an injury or emotional wound. Is that you?
The fact is, if you are not getting better, you are likely not focusing on the root cause of your dysfunction, and that is the first key to your unique code to wellness. Never forget your body was designed to heal itself!
It is a personalized journey for you. Each person’s body has to find what it needs in order to move to wellness, but, as a starting place, let’s discuss the difference between the body and disease. This perspective is key to unlocking the mystery of your body’s illness and wellness, and to finding the tools, healthcare practitioners, and solutions that best support your body.
Our organs, systems, ligaments, joints, muscles, bones, skin, eyes, brain, and so on, are what we are referring to as the body. Disease is a process that interferes with the body’s ability to self-heal, and it manifests differently in every person that it presents in. You may be familiar with the saying, “No two people are alike” and the same concept applies to our bodies, genetics, souls, and minds. The result of our differences is that the same treatment does not work in the exact same way on everyone. This is why healthcare practitioners “practice” medicine. This also reminds us that what the science says treats a disease or helps your body function best doesn’t always work. None of us are identical to the people who got results in the medical texts and research studies. Remember, those are to be used as guidelines for Healthcare Practitioners to base their decisions on, and for you to learn from too! Having personalized medicine and being your own advocate is a huge key to supporting your body’s optimal health and wellness.
Our Team at Be Alive Wellness will provide you with everything we can to support you on your path to wellness, and provide you with tools, solutions, science, and a way to navigate finding the right types of Healthcare Practitioners to best support you. Our Be Aware, Be Alive Nutrition, and Be Alive Testing areas are our portals for you to educate yourself and become your own health advocate.
We also want you to know that we all know personally and professionally how hard disease states occurring in the body can be, and that, even if right now you or a loved one is in that challenging place, it will be okay! Each one of us has a path to wellness, and sometimes medicine is what is needed to help the body survive, thrive and get to a place where the disease is gone. We are here for you to start learning what you can, wherever you are on your path to wellness.
