Do you have trouble losing weight? Or have heard from your doctor that you are “fine” when you know you are not? Or have just felt unhealthy for a while? If you have answered yes, you may have a “blocking” factor preventing you from achieving your health goal.
Life in our modern world is stressful. Some stress (like moderate exercise) is healthy. But we do not always understand that too much stress will take a toll on our health. We do not always make the connection between stress and why we do not feel our best. And we may not be aware of all the sources of stress on our body.
There are essentially two kinds of stress: external and internal.
We are usually aware of “external” stressors such as past injuries, an overly demanding work schedule, financial pressures, difficult relationships and even emotional states of fear or anxiety.
However, we are often unaware of “hidden” internal stressors such as nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, food allergies, chemical sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity and pathogens including parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi. All of these stressors can be major culprits when it comes to underlying causes of symptoms and can be overlooked by conventional health care systems.
Real health is not achieved by treating (or “covering up”) symptoms. Only by discovering and relieving stress such as the underlying stressors on the body – these sensitivities, infections and infestations – can you return to normal health.
A natural health practitioner can help using diet modifications and testing to assess the function of each important system in your body, uncover opportunities for healing, and work to eliminate factors blocking your optimal health.
