Why do you suffer? Aren’t you aware that you don’t have to? I have come to the conclusion that there are three primary reasons why people suffer: 1), they don’t know any better. 2), they are doing everything they are currently aware of but it’s not helping, or it’s just temporary. And 3), it’s not a priority to make a change.
Let me elaborate: If you don’t know any better it’s because no one has told you (or you have yet to find out on your own) that your body can heal itself. Your body has the capacity to heal ANYTHING that’s wrong with it. Anything that is, which would be considered an acquired infirmity. This does not include for instance the loss of a limb due to an unfortunate accident. Also, any organs that have been removed will limit what the body is able to restore itself to in its original state.
If your body can heal itself, why do we always tend to ask “why am I sick?” instead of “why am I not healing?” That is the heart of your condition. Then you need to ask two more questions which are “what AM I doing that is prohibiting my body from healing?” and “what am I NOT doing that is preventing my body from healing?”
The function of every organ, gland, and cell in the body has a mineral upon which it is dependent for. If any part of your body doesn’t receive it, it will fail to do all the functions it is supposed to do, and disease results.
If the wood beams in your house become moldy will your house still stand? Yes, it will. However, structurally it will not be sound. It will not withstand long term stresses of nature. The house will also have to borrow from other areas to make it work, further weakening the building. Your body is no different. Everyone’s body not only needs minerals, but protein, essential fats, water, carbohydrates and enzymes to function. If they are not available, how can anyone expect their body to function, much less heal itself?
Let’s use sugar as an example. Sugar STOPS your immune system in its tracks for about four to five hours and it may take the body a full three days to recover completely. What do we tend to eat when we’re sick? We feed our body Jell-O, 7-Up or popsicles!
The second reason people choose to suffer is because you believe you are doing “everything possible” to get better. You have tried over the counter medication when that didn’t work you went to your medical doctor. Your MD recommended a drug, when that didn’t work they recommending more medications and then when that didn’t work you were possibly looking at surgery. That’s such a finite approach to getting well.
Have you tried a great nutritionist, chiropractor, an acupuncturist or a naturopath? Their education on managing the health of your body is where it should be managed – from the causative factor! You need to understand that medical doctors, in addition to being unparalleled when it comes to emergency medicine, manage health from an outcome standpoint. Medical Doctors are educated in medicine on a symptom based theology. In other words, if you have a symptom and you come in to see your doctor, he will most likely prescribe something to enable you to live with your symptom or your condition easier. Rarely will a medical doctor treat the underlying REASON you are ill in the first place. There are many other options you can use to get well in addition to those mentioned above, such as herbal medicine, or homeopathy under a licensed professional will help with finding the cause of the dysfunction of your body. There are many ways to promote healing, and there is usually more than just one causative factor. If you have not yet tried chiropractic for instance, now would be a good time to get another perspective on your condition.
The third reason why people suffer is because better than average health isn’t a priority. We may convince ourselves it is a priority, until another want or desire is more important. A 10 year study was done recently to try to prove that “health fanatics” were just that – fanatical. The health fanatics group spent copious amounts of money on health foods, organic foods, chiropractors, acupuncturists and whole food supplements. A separate control group ate the standard American diet, followed the traditional medical route when ill and used the recommended medications. The outcome of the study was surprising to the researchers. Factoring in not only the amount of money spent, but the time loss from work for illness and doctor’s appointments, the researchers found that not only were the so-called health fanatics healthier, by far, but the financial spending was significantly less! “Pay now or pay later” is more than just a statement. The pay later decision is more expensive not just in medical bills but the time missed from work. I prefer to pay now in dividends, not only because overall it will save me money and time. Largely I don’t want to SUFFER and you don’t have to suffer either. Neither does your family. It is a choice.
