According to the national Institute of mental health, 75 to 90% of all doctor visits in the US are stress related ailments and complaints. Sometimes major life events, such as divorce, loss of a loved one, financial problems, the birth or loss of a child, can combine with genetic or biological pre-dispositions to prompt I stress related health crisis. Our culture often encourages a dependence on doctors, drugs, and healthcare systems to fix and heal these physical and emotional ailments . Yet it is widely known and excepted within the medical community that learned behaviors and lifestyle choices, such as poor stress management, in adequate nutrition, physical in-activity, insufficient sleep, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, are major contributors to illness and diminished quality of life. I don’t know about you but I don’t see a huge need for medical intervention here. Why do we fixate on diagnosis and treatment, whereas a wellness lifestyle focuses on education self awareness, and prevention. And I am on a mission to provide that!!!! Why would we merely treat a disease and symptom. What we should be doing is exploring the lifestyle that causes it and addressing what lies beneath the disease and it symptom. Our thoughts, feelings, believes, habits, and choices are fueling the fires of inflammation, pain, toxicity, and illness in our bodies. By addressing the root causes of these diseases rather than merely treating the symptoms we can assist the body and healing itself!!!!!
