Did you try natural medicines yet they had little to no effect?
Maybe you’ve been to a natural medicine doctor and still didn’t get the results you were looking for.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had several consultations with clients who told me exactly the same thing. This is a story I sometimes hear when people are talking to me about natural health practices and a root cause approach to healing.
Many people have already been failed by alternative therapies and began to doubt them.
Many people I talk to have already tried a lot of natural things. They’ve changed their diet, started to exercise, and maybe even had a few functional lab tests and they still aren’t getting the results.
This is the typical story I hear…
I did such and such lab tests, took such and such supplements… And they didn’t work.
The Real Problem With A Natural Medicine Approach
Here’s the problem with the natural medicine approach… When you don’t address the root of the condition like toxicity, relationship stress, nutrition, emotional impact, exercise (or lack thereof), then you’re never going to address the real root of the issue.
For example, if I give you one of my favorite hormone tests called The Dutch Test and we find that you’re in estrogen dominance or estrogen toxicity, we can open up the drainage pathways in your liver to help you detox.
We want to correct those pathways and drain off excess old estrogen to prevent things like DNA damage and breast cancer.
But if you’re constantly exposing yourself to xenoestrogens or fake estrogens that are in our environment in the form of toxins, then it doesn’t matter how many pills and potions I give you… When we stop the treatment, the symptoms will return. And many times, they may never even go away, and you may never find hormone balance.
Taking A Whole Body Approach To Wellness
I went through this cycle for many years, yet I had no improvements. I remember being on bioidentical hormone therapy and wondered why these pills and potions didn’t work for me. Why did I need to increase my dose every time I went? Why were my hormones not coming into balance?
Those were the wrong questions.
Those therapies were only one piece of a very big puzzle.
Part of the issue is that when you receive an external source of hormones, then your own hormone production tends to get lazy. Your body is, naturally, going to do the easiest thing possible.
A huge piece of the wellness puzzle is the lifestyle factors that may be preventing you from reaching your fullest health potential.
I know for me, that was the case. Whenever I achieved the end result of my personal issue, much of that was related to toxicity and issues with my gut.
This is the reason it is so important to take a whole body approach to wellness.
Doing The Detective Work To Find The Root
When we look at simple hormone imbalance and something like PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome, we’re going to see that the hormones are out of balance. But it’s not really a hormone issue. The driving forces behind these diseases are actually inflammation and abnormally high blood sugar, but your doctor is going to prescribe you hormones. The problem with this approach is it treats the symptoms but never addresses the underlying or root cause.
Lab tests are only one part of the detective work. We have to look at your history, your environment, and your body. Are you being exposed to chemicals and toxins or mold? Are you even able to digest and absorb nutrients?
Sure, we can run a simple lab test and see what it comes up with. But without a proper interview with you and the education to understand how your lifestyle factors impact you (positively or negatively), then you may never get well. When you’re attempting to follow natural healing protocols, this is often the biggest missing piece. That’s also why so many people suffer for years when they try to trial and error it on their own.
When you operate in this manner in an attempt to save money, you’re prolonging your wellness results. You’re not going to get a full understanding of how your body truly functions and how you need to approach it in a systematic way if you don’t have the education to do that.
Looking At The Whole Picture To Find Wellness
When you hire a professional who will look at the whole picture, you’ll be able to find wellness in time.
You don’t want someone looking at individual pieces of the puzzle – separate from one another.
You want someone who is willing to do the detective work and determine what pieces of the puzzle apply to you. This allows them to address the root causes of your issue so that you can live in health and happiness instead of chasing symptoms.
If you want a detective, learn how I help clients uncover the whole picture of their wellness.
Someone recently asked me to run a simple lab test with them and interpret it instead of going through my program. While you may get some answers going that way, it still never addresses the root of the condition. And if you want to experience a whole body approach to wellness, you must address the root.
