In the video below I share the two most common misconceptions I see in my practice around digestive health; however, these two misconceptions are true for most any health condition. Sometimes when what you are doing isn’t working and your health condition and symptoms are persisting, you need to start over and re-evaluate your strategy.
Western medicine has taught us to compartmentalize our body and our symptoms–drawing correspondence between specific symptoms to specific organs. But we are not just a conglomeration of parts, we are an interdependent system that all works in unison and together. It is not possible to separate how our body works into pieces because each supposed piece works in combination with the whole.
Henry Miller said “Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense. “ Sometimes stillness and listening to our body is what is needed. Our symptoms are a clue to the dis-ease in our body. Medicating our symptoms does not answer our body’s call.
What is your body trying to tell you? Are you paying attention to your symptoms or to your health—your being—your whole system of life?
