Traditional healthcare has gotten out of hand. It is all about management of symptoms. Healing is not really in our medical vocabulary. management of symptom is the main focus of attention. It is all about what symptom can we manage with this drug or that drug. There are very few doctors that look for the underlying cause of symptoms and actually try to heal and get rid of the symptoms rather than manage them. It has become a game of what symptom do you have? Let's see what pill we have for that? Healthcare workers have become pill pushers to the max. We cannot blame the doctors, nurses and health care workers. they have been trained that way by the drug companies and society itself.
So often we are resistant to change. We go to the doctor and think to ourselves, "I hope he doesn't tell me that I have to lose weight, or eat better; I know that already, I just want him to give me something to feel better." I went in wanting to feel better. The answer that I was aging normally and that I could come back often to the doctor and get prescriptions to manage my symptoms was not acceptable to me. I did not want to come back again and be told that it was normal aging. I did not see it working for others. I saw more pain and more pills. It was a path I did not want to be on. I chose a different path. I started to research my symptoms. I invested some time and energy into finding out what was going on with me. I made myself priority for a short while.
I came to the conclusion that I had a thyroid issue. I had seen it with so many others. Go to the doctor get on thyroid meds for life. That was not acceptable to me. I just felt that it was not the answer. Sure the drugs would help for a while, but I did not want to be just another number in the crowd. I did not want to be on a drug for life. I started on some natural things. They helped but I still felt that it was not enough. Although it was natural, it was still just symptom relief. I needed to know what the real trouble was. My body was not working properly and I wanted to know why! I got upset about it. In a process of learning and discovery, I found that my Adrenal glands were fatigued from taking over for the thyroid, and that my mineral levels were low, and so on. The more I dug, the more I discovered that there were big troubles brewing waiting to show new signs and symptoms. My body was failing and I wanted to know why. I needed to find out what the trouble was.
I HAVE FOUND AND EXPOSED MY ROOT TROUBLE, NOW ON TO THE HEALING.
It is a process. There are many changes to be made. I am well on my way I have made some great dietary strides I am eating better but it is not as effective as it should be because I am digesting only a small portion of it. Once I get to where I am digesting better my body will have what it needs to heal.
