Harnessing The Power of Your Own Body To Cure What Ails You!
When you sit down to watch TV at night, how many pharmaceutical ads do you typically see? The ad introduces a drug and, without really telling you what it ‘helps’ you with, you are introduced to a long list of symptoms that it can address. These symptoms can, and usually include, anything and everything from depression to urinary troubles to sexual dysfunction. The likelihood of you syncing up with this laundry list of symptoms is pretty high.
The last script that is read is typically something like, “So go and ask you doctor if blank is right for you.
What is the problem with this?
What isn’t the problem with this?
We are giving out prescription medications like candy and they’re making us sick, dependant, and lining the pockets of one of the most powerful industries in the world. And make no mistake. This industry has a bottom line. It is not to make you healthier. Drugs can’t do that. In fact, drugs can do two things. They suppress symptoms and create others where there were none.
So, is there a better, more effective way at healing what ails us? YES!
What we aim to do is take the wisdom that is already packed within every cell of your body and harness its power to get you well again. We do this by addressing the following things:
We address the wounds and traumas that you have experienced; the ones that still rock your boat, and together, we unpack them. We unpack them until they no longer act as triggers. When old wounds no longer act as triggers, we can be free of their burden on the body and mind. We are no longer walking around trying to avoid those things that scare or threaten us. We are free from those bonds.
Fix The Belly
Hippocrates made a most profound statement when he said, “All disease begins in the gut.” And he was correct! Up to 70% of our immune system is housed in our digestive tract. It is also our guts that communicate heavily with our brains. So depression, anxiety and even low seratonin levels in the brain originate in the health (or lack thereof) of your gut. Our guts dictate what gets digested, what gets transported to the liver for nutrient dissemination and what passes through our systems in tact. With a healthy gut (and assuming a nourishing diet) your body is being fed optimally and works well. With a leaky or inflamed gut (think…bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies and intolerances, skin issues, ear infections, etc…) this digestion and transport system of nutrient dissemination breaks down. So, no matter what we’re eating, we’re not reaping the benefits. We’re running on empty.
Re-Wild Your Life
What the heck does re-wild you life mean? It’s actually much more scientific than it sounds. This is all about one of the most crucial aspects of your physical body: Feeding your microbiome. Your microbiome is your bacterial body. It’s the little living microorganisms that, when in balance and healthy, make a thriving and even happy individual. Get this:
Our bodies have about 37.2 trillion cells in our body. Yet it is estimated that we have ten times that much bacteria in and on our bodies!
We learn how reestablish a healthy and thriving microbiome (this can take surprisingly little time). This is currently at the forefront of scientific research right now and we’re learning how crucial our microbiomes are to everything.
With these tools we can move mountains together.
As someone who has lived with a debilitating, chronic, autoimmune illness and has come out the other side with no disease, only incredible health, I’ve been in your shoes. I know how much you want to have the energy and the vibrancy to live the life that is waiting for you.
Reconsider the notion that health comes in the form of a pill or surgery. Some pills and surgeries are life-saving. I’ve been the on the receiving end of these treatments. And yet, there is another, gentler and more effective way for those of us who find ourselves chronically ill.
You don’t fix a garden by treating the leaves and flowers. You fix a garden by tending to the soil. The soil is what feeds our gardens. Likewise, our soil – our guts – are what feeds our bodies and brains. Tend to your soil and you get better. Aren’t you worth the effort?
