Chronic conditions tend to creep in and define people. Disease tries to find a way in, and take over. In my practice I have seen countless people suffering immensely from conditions that have come to define them. This is not for attention. This is because the pain is so great that their lives have changed. The inability to socialize, move and/or communicate compromises personality, mood and daily function. They seek out help, but find that the answer is not so simple or feels hopeless. Or they have been to several practitioners to no avail, only clouding any chance at recovering. Natural medicine knows that the innate wisdom to heal is within. There is not one pill or supplement that realigns the entire being. Negative thinking only creates negative effects in the body. If you or someone you know is defined by illness, know that it does not have to be that way. It can be a messy road out, but it is enlightening, and with persistence I see many people rebuild and redefine who they are.
