If you have a headache, you can take two pills and call it a day- you'll probably have to take two more in a few hours. If you have a headache and figure out why- you may not get the headache again.
That's called integrative healing. Drugs alone typically mask what's going on. Figuring out why something happens, gives you a chance to truly heal. Go down the list. Here's a sample:
(1) Is it nutritional? Did you eat today? Are you dehydrated? Are you lacking something in your diet?
(2) Is it physical? Could there be some kind of growth? Do you need to change your glasses?
(3) Is it emotional? Are your kids driving you crazy? Okay, maybe not much you can do about that.
(4) Is it spiritual? Are you tired of the rat race and pressure? Need to connect to why you're doing what you're doing?
This holistic approach to health is how the best doctors treat us. Treat yourself to the best. You deserve it.
