It happened to me
Before the tremors of disease, I loved life! Sharing good times and places with family and friends and making plans for the future. I was an energetic designer and ran a bespoke business that depended on me for survival but I was gradually losing the ability to keep things going.
Now, a sense of loss, panic, fear, denial, anger and doubts about my self-worth held me in a place where 'that' person I grew into and knew very well had slowly become a stranger.
Well, I don't know about you but when I was growing up, I was always told not to trust or talk to strangers but here I was-feeling forced to live with the stranger in my disease-never knowing when it was happy or angry but knowing that my life would be affected without a minutes notice regardless.
Maybe your personality and character were once filled with strength, determination and a vision-seen and felt throughout personal and business life but the unpredictability of your medical position now leaves you feeling overwhelmed and undermined. I know that for a while, I sat in a state of confusion wandering when 'I' would return to my normal level of wellness. I just wanted the stranger;- the invader to go away.
So what can you do in a situation like this?
You could go head to head with your disease by launching an attack using a combination of drugs. Surely your previous good strength and determination would suggest that you'd come out on top!
Unfortunately, the body registers many of these drugs as invaders and releases a barrage of chemicals to fight them off and this creates more 'fire' (inflammation) in the body. The inflammation causes unfavourable symptoms and attacks the nervous system creating further damage which in time becomes the reason why many diseases or condition progress.
I have come to learn and understand the importance of preventing those 'fires' from taking hold in the first place because with the absence of inflammation, disease is not fuelled and further damage is prevented.
So it's safe to say that staying as close to our body's natural makeup in terms of what we eat, drink and use when treating complaints, conditions and diseases creates a much better environment for us to maintain wellness in and initiate repairs without the interruptions from inflammatory triggers brought on by many artificial remedies.
We are all very different so our experiences with inflammatory triggers will vary but there are some that most of us could do with avoiding all together.
Sugars . Vegetable Oil . Fried Foods . Refined Flour . Dairy . Artificial Sweetners . Artificial Aditives Saturated Fats . Prescribed Medicines . Emotional and/or Physical Stress
These culprits might appear relatively harmless and with occasional exposure, the body might be able to manage their negative effects but it's worth consider their ability to create inflammation each time we encounter them and then remember that reoccurring inflammation leads to damage and disease.
You see...as long as we keep bad inflammation down, the stranger will have less to thrive on and there would be fewer triggers that allow conditions and diseases to establish themselves.
