Tracie F. – “No more cramping, bleeding and crazy female issues. I’m so excited to see the changes in my body. I can’t believe I wasted so much time seeing so many doctors and specialist for my female problems. In hindsight I guess I should have seen they all were doing the same thing. Just trying this drug and that drug and when they didn’t help they would send me to a specialist who would just put me on a different drug. Since I started your program and started learning and doing what you asked 100% of my symptoms are gone. And you know what else is gone?? All of those medications and hormones that left me feel fat, bloated and generally blahhh. As you worked with me I began to realize that my body has the ability to heal itself if I would stop chasing my symptoms and start working on the underlying cause of those symptoms. Thank you Dr. A for helping me get my life back.”

Symptoms are the body’s way of telling you that you have a problem. In many cases, symptoms are good. It is the body trying to heal itself. For instance, a fever is the body trying to fight infection. If you have a low grade fever (i.e. 99 degrees), you may have a viral infection, whereas a high grade fever (102 degrees and above) usually indicates a bacterial infection.

Your body knows that a low grade fever will usually kill off a viral infection and a that a bacterial infection generally requires a higher fever. Therefore, taking aspirin or fever-reducing medication is probably NOT a good idea since reducing your fever could very well mean that you’ll be sick longer. Vomiting, diarrhea and coughing are other examples of the body trying to heal itself.

In these instances, the body is trying to eliminate the toxin. If you are vomiting or have diarrhea, it is important that you replace the fluids by drinking a lot of water, but taking something to stop the vomiting or diarrhea within the first 24 hours could allow the bug to thrive.

Pain is generally a good symptom. It is the way the body tells you that you have a problem.

Many people ignore the pain as they think it will just go away. Or, they take an analgesic such as Tylenol or Advil. Analgesics cover up the symptom like a Band-Aid, they don’t fix the problem. And, many times, taking an analgesic can make the problem worse as it lulls people into a false sense of security.

They think that if they can’t feel the pain, then they are OK and go about doing their regular activities. Cutting off the pain signal may cause us to aggravate the problem.

So the next time you have symptoms I want you to listen to your body and ask yourself if you should try to hid or mask the symptom or if you might be better off seeking the reasons why your body is giving you those symptoms.

Yours in Health and Wellness,
