HEALTHY OR NOT SICK?
HOLISTIC APPROACH TO WELLNESS BETTER THAN ADDING A BAND-AID
“I never need to go to the doctor”
“The last time I went to the doctor was years ago?”
“I never get sick”
Does this sound like you?
While it is great that you may not get sick, there can be a misconception that this means you are healthy. “Well it does, I’m not sick” I hear you say. There is some truth in what you’re saying, but sickness and illness are just the visible tip of the iceberg.
When you are sick, it’s is a sign that there are significant imbalances, stress and dysfunction in the body that you’re showing sickness symptoms. These imbalances and dysfunction can be around for a long time and while you may not feel sick, these imbalances prevent you from feeling as healthy as you could be.
Let’s make this point very clear – symptoms are NOT normal. We are meant to be well. As we get a few years older people can often fall into the trap of accepting symptoms as normal. The few aches and pains in the morning, feeling a bit flat, the bloating, the few extras kilos is just what happens when we age. We would argue that it doesn’t have to be like that.
We resonate with the World Health Organisation definition of health
“A state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
It’s more than just avoiding sickness. We work with our clients towards optimal function and wellness. We like to take a holistic approach to not only working with your body but working with you as a human being.
Rather than taking band-aid approaches like anti-inflammatories, caffeine and antacids, we believe in looking at what is causing the symptom and using lifestyle medicine. Sore stomachs are not caused by a lack of antacids. High blood pressure is not caused by a lack of hypertension medication.
We look at the whole iceberg, not just the tip. We look at what is causing the stress on your system, what is driving the imbalances and causing the symptoms, and then we can look to restore function.
How healthy can you be?
