The power we give to dis-ease in our lives
- Posted on: Sep 10 2020
Many forms of natural medicine consider a dis-ease of normal health within the body the beginning of the disease process. It is believed that most people encounter many minor forms of dis-ease before disease takes hold of us. We tend to ignore these little nudges from our body in lieu of our overburdened mental noise.
When dis-ease converts to disease, our bodies are screaming at us to finally listen. Dis-ease can come in the form of little aches and pains, irregular bowel habits, an internal discomfort that comes and goes or occasional sleepless nights. These can manifest into chronic pains such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel or digestive disorders, gallbladder or kidney stones or anxiety/panic attacks, just as examples. It takes a while before these little issues become a problem. The utilization of medicinal structures, such as acupuncture, encourage the natural ability of the body to heal itself by balancing mechanisms such as blood flow, water balance, inflammatory processes, and neurological pathways to free blockages within the systems of the body to restore health before it manifests into disease.
Acupuncture acknowledges the importance of treating patients with the totality of their mind, body, spirit, and their inner and outer environments as a rule. This means that a disease is the by-product of our overall opinions of ourselves and others and how we handle life, our physical presentation or relationship with ourselves, our core beliefs and what we put into our inner environment and surround ourselves with. The cumulative effect of any dis-ease of these factors are a part of our underlying story. Acupuncture strives to identify and treat the underlying cause of illness, the root, rather than only focusing on individual presenting symptoms, or the branches.
Coupled with the right food, herbal and vitamin supplementation, behavioral modifications, and exercise that is tailored to individual healing, this ancient medical art can assist with implementing the changes needed for you to regain overall wellness. Take the power of health back by taking the first step away from dis-ease.
