Unpleasant. Difficult. Painful. Intense. All words which describe the absence of "ease", thus, DIS-ease. They are also words that aptly describe the condition of life for those that suffer with Autoimmune Disease. So much so that they become an unwelcome yet accepted way of life for most Autoimmune disease sufferers.
However, there are Functional Medical Professionals and Health Coaches trying to get the message across out there that the word disease is defined as "an abnormal condition." In other words, disease should not only be unwelcome, it should not be accepted as a normal lifestyle. Living in a state that is unpleasant, difficult, painful and intense is not normal. Living in a state of DIS-ease is not how you should have to live!
Never before in culture has a list of diseases been so accepted and embraced as lifestyle rather than abnormal conditions than now. Many of the top chronic diseases are not only preventable but more times than not they are curable. Nevertheless, entire lives are arranged around the symptoms and affects of these diseases. We are a society of people who have allowed learning to cope, live with or stop living for the sake of our diseases become the norm.
Recently a commercial about a pharmaceutical for IBS (Irritable Bowl Syndrome), featured a woman who was getting ready to go out to meet a friend for dinner. In walks a double of her in a nude colored body suit with intestines drawn on the torso. This double was identified as "Irritabella" (IBS), who quickly reminded her she couldn't go anywhere because she might have a flare up. The woman, discouraged, called and canceled her plans.
The commercial then moved to a Doctor's office where the woman had "IBS" with her, and she got a prescription for IBS. This might seem like a happy ending. However, the rest of the commercial showed the woman going about her usual life happy, but "IBS" was still with her everywhere she went. The pharmaceutical drug didn't get rid of IBS, it just made IBS manageable and livable.
This is an absolute representation of where people are in their views toward many health issues including Auto-immune diseases. Whether it is food intolerances, leaky gut, GERD, Lupus, Hashimoto's, or IBS, we simply learn to live with it and try to subdue the worst of symptoms. We never are advised there may be a root cause, how to find it and what to do about it.
There is a better way. The better way is to think of the possibility that you could come to understand the cause and if you did you may find the cure! If that happens, then you might be able to stop living with it and start living without it! Instead of DIS-ease you could live WITH EASE!
If there was a possibility, wouldn't you want to take it and try it?
The facts are:
More than 80 diseases are classified at autoimmune
Autoimmune Diseases are a runaway response known as systematic inflammation
Autoimmunity occurs when your body is fighting something
Most triggers are infections, toxins, allergens, poor diet & chronic stress
The body sometimes confused, redirects it's immune attack on itself: the joints, brain, skin and even the whole body
Most conventional anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil, steroids or immune suppressants can lead to catastrophic affects like intestinal bleeding, kidney failure, depression, psychoses, osteoporosis, muscle loss, diabetes, infection and cancer.
Some conventional drugs can shut down your own immune system leaving you susceptible to other sicknesses
What should you do to find the cause so you can find a cure?
These are my recommendations:
Find a Functional Medicine Doctor, Homeopath or Holistic Doctor who will blend scientific medical knowledge to natural healing and health.
Ask the right question: Why is my body out of balance and how do I help it regain balance. Dig Deep looking for root causes from environmental, diet and toxic intake.
Get a Health Coach that can walk you through a journey from cause to cure.
Be willing and ready to live DISease free!
