Blocking Factors To Health
Have you heard from your doctor that you are “fine” when you know you are not? Do you have trouble losing weight? Have you felt unhealthy for a period of time? If you have answered yes, you may have a “blocking” factor preventing you from feeling well and achieving your health goals.
Life in our modern world is stressful. Some stress (like moderate exercise) is healthy. Most other sources of stress can effect our health adversely. And we may not be aware of all the sources of stress that make us feel unwell.
There are essentially two kinds of stress: external and internal.
We are usually aware of “external” stressors such as past injuries, an overly demanding work schedule, financial pressures, difficult relationships and even emotional states of fear or anxiety.
However, we are often unaware of “hidden” internal stressors such as nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, food allergies, chemical sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity and pathogens including parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi. All of these stressors can be major culprits when it comes to underlying causes of disease but are often overlooked by conventional health care systems.
Real health is not achieved by treating (or “covering up”) symptoms. Only by discovering and relieving these underlying stressors on the body can you return to normal health. A natural health practitioner can help uncover and eliminate these factors blocking your optimal health, thus revealing opportunities for health and healing.
