Prevention Vs Treatment
Allopathic medicine generally has you present with symptoms, then offers you a continuous stream of pharmaceuticals to treat the symptoms, not the root cause.
Energy medicine not only gets to the root cause; adapting a healing practice can prevent the root cause, thereby eliminating the symptoms.
However, symptoms are important – let’s not dismiss symptoms all together, they are not the bad guys.
Symptoms are your body’s way of communicating to you that something is out of balance. When there is an imbalance, vulnerability sets in. When you have areas of vulnerability, illness, disease & chronic pain can set in.
There needs to be a marriage of both western based and energy based medicine.
Diagnostic testing can help pinpoint the vulnerability in your body so that the energy work can get to the root cause with more precision.
Stress, anxiety, toxicities and negative belief systems are the most prevalent root causes. Energy medicine can release these and many more imbalances in your body.
The belief system that we are our parents’ illnesses, genes, diseases is increasingly being recognized as a false belief. This started with Darwin’s theory that everything passes through your genes. That survival of the fittest is the only way we have a chance in this world.
The study of epigenetics is proving that theory to be flawed. It is actually our cells, our own individual cells, that play the strongest role in the health of our body. Cells are affected by our environment, our habits & patterns, our belief systems.
How many times have you gone to a doctor and the first question is about your family history? Family history is important, however you, your environment, your habits & patterns are most important.
Just because your dad has high blood pressure & heart disease, and your mom has cancer, doesn’t mean you are a candidate for any of it.
How is that possible? It goes against anything we have heard at the doctor’s office.
Dad can have a high stress level, maybe he consumed more alcohol than he should have, smoked for decades.
Mom’s lifestyle can be less than healthy herself, perhaps she has never healed from a traumatic childhood.
You – you eat right, exercise, maybe meditate a little – your environment is completely different from theirs. It is the environment you live in, surround yourself in, that has the highest impact on the amount of imbalances & vulnerabilities in your body, which again, create the causes that give you the symptoms.
Did you know? Only 5% of cancer and cardiovascular patients can attribute their disease directly to heredity (Willet 2002; Silverman 2004). 95% of breast cancers are not due to inherited genes, but derived from environmental alterations, not defective genes – including BRCA1 and BRCA2. (Kling2003; Jones 2001: Seppa 2000; Baylin 1997)
How will this information affect the way you continue to live your life?
You are in control of your health.
If you haven’t done so already, now is a great time to begin healing practices such as tapping, mediation, acupuncture, etc. (It’s never too late!) Take a look at your hydration each day, the food choices you make. How often are you moving throughout the day? How do you release the challenges life throws at you? Create the lifestyle that will assist in the healthy body & mind you want.
It takes a village, create your village and live the healthy, happy, energetic life you were meant to live!
Love, light & healing,
