Some people spend years going from doctor to doctor chasing their symptoms and trying to find a diagnosis that explains their problems. Far too often this results in failed treatments, drained bank accounts, and a continued decline of health. In most cases, the cure is in the prevention.
Thomas Edison said “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”. I agree.
Imagine if your health problems could be cured without ever finding out what caused them in the first place. What if there was a protocol for health that worked across the full spectrum of illnesses; that is, something you could do to empower your body to fix problems without you even knowing exactly what was wrong in the first place.
This concept is the very thing that most Alternative Healthcare Providers focus on. It assumes that the patient’s body is smarter than the patient… and the doctor. It recognizes that for the lifetime of the patient, the life inside of the patient somehow turned the food the person ate into parts of their body. It recognizes that there is an innate intelligence that strives for a healthy life. It assumes that the person was not born with a deficiency of drugs, but merely needs 5 things for optimal health. They are:
- Proper Nutrition
- Proper Exercise
- Proper Rest
- Proper Mental Health
- A Properly Functioning Nervous System
Improving your health really depends on identifying which of these 5 areas is deficient, making the necessary changes to remove the interference or cause of disease, and provide what is lacking for the body to fix itself. These 5 areas are complex and inter-related. A deficiency in any single component affects the others. In the same way, correcting any of the 5 components supports the others.
In the next series of articles, we will explore and expand the “5 Facets Of Health” to help you identify your weaknesses and make simple changes to improve your health regardless of what condition you may be suffering from.
