We are on a constant search for the perfectly balanced lifestyle.
The correct eating plan—there is a diet for every lifestyle and inclination.
The most effective exercise regime. Yoga, T’ai Chi, running, walking, swimming, climbing, biking.
We know a lot about nutrition, detox, raw food, vegan-ism, juicing, fermenting, eating organic, local, and seasonal fare.
There is no shortage of information about alternative health treatments. We visit Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Nutritionists, healers of every tradition.
And it is good. We try hard to do all the right things, but sometimes, many times, we are still sick, with an undiagnosable illness that defies our most fervent efforts to be well.
But there is something that eludes us.
And often we are so busy looking for the answer that we forget to look in the most obvious place for deep healing and vibrant health.
In the video below, Dr. Lisa Rankin gives a Ted Talk about what some in the medical profession are now waking up to. The reason for that illusive, multi-symptom problem that has been plaguing your body without any effective long term relief.
As a person trained in the Holistic Nutrition field, I have seen many clients who have been desperate to define their true health issues. They did not always take my advice, because it was more than, “Here, take this herb, change this in your diet.”
The answer was not what they were looking for.
To see a doctor from the Allopathic tradition of healing acknowledge what the secret to health really is, is extremely gratifying. Perhaps all healing traditions can work together in the future to best serve mankind.
Two things that I took from this talk are:
“The body is a mirror of how we live our lives” and “When we fall apart we either grow or grow a tumor.”
Powerful words, but see for yourself, you might nod your head, and say, “Yes! I knew that, somewhere deep down inside.”
