Last week my calendar included attending several networking events. I enjoy connecting with people at these events and getting to know them on a more personal level. It’s also a great way for me to figure out what health conditions others are dealing with.
I find it interesting because most of the time people want me to believe they don’t have any challenges. As soon as I share my story, however, their story suddenly changes.
I’m not sure why but people hate admitting they have a problem. Maybe the real issue is that they’ve gotten so used to dealing with the problem, they’ve accepted it as “normal”. I guess I can relate.
When I couldn’t find the answers I was searching for, I actually started to believe I was healthy…that I would just need to live this way.
“Sadly, most people don’t take action until something really bad happens.”
The past four years have been pretty eye-opening for me, though. With the right resources, I’ve been able to dig deeper and am excited about the things I’ve learned. I’ve begun to recognize the things to pay attention to. Now, most of what I used to accept as “normal” is like a blinking ‘dummy’ light. Despite the fact that I felt pretty good, there were some definite problems.
Just to give you a few ideas of what I was dealing with here is a short list: brain fog, eye floaters, ringing in the ears, bloating/burping (even after eating small portions), mild headaches over one eye, irregular bathroom habits (i.e. diarrhea and constipation both), night sweats, restless sleep, racing heart, frequently waking during the night.
Yes, some of them are embarrassing but that’s LIFE!
I’m curious, can you relate to any of these? Maybe for you it’s something different.
If the answer is yes, then you don’t have to settle for it!
The reality is that being healthy does NOT mean waiting for something serious to happen – or, God forbid, getting a diagnosis. Sadly, most people don’t take action until something really bad happens.
Being healthy is recognizing that if you aren’t giving your body what it needs and wants, a breakdown is probably already happening.
That’s just the reality. The good news is that there is something you can do about it!
All you need to do is know where to start. If you have a nagging little issue, maybe one of the symptoms I listed above or something different, I might be able to point you in the right direction to begin the healing process.
Live your best LIFE,
