Dr. You: Delegating Responsibility For Your Healthcare

Dr you

Who is responsible for your health and well-being?

Health is in part dependent on the quality of the healthcare you choose to receive from the healthcare providers you choose to consult. Your health and well-being are ultimately your responsibility. Your well-being depends on you to make healthy choices and take the steps required to assess and preserve your health, promoting your overall well-being. It requires you to regularly monitor the status of your body and be in tune to its needs by listening to the subtle messages it gives you. Your well-being is your choice and your responsibility! The power to be well is yours.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine was quoted to say: “Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well”. There was a time when the focus for health recovery was to rely on the ‘doctor within’, as the first response. In modern times, sometimes the first response is the medicine cabinet, doctor’s office or emergency room. There are definitely times when these are necessary choices. Modern medicine has saved many lives. Many people have delegated 100% responsibility for their healthcare to their doctors, pharmacists and other medical providers. 

How much of the authority and responsibility for your healthcare have you handed over? You mind and body were created fully equipped, and capable of providing you with many natural cures – provided by your body’s amazing abilities and internal pharmacy

Calling Dr. You

You have the authority to delegate the responsibility for your healthcare to your ‘doctor within’ and other healthcare practitioners and therapies, as required. You possess the power to choose to implement a well-being plan and follow it through. You have the power to choose to accept a diagnosis or prognosis as a done deal or not. You have the power to choose to believe your body can heal. Other than the factors beyond your control, you have the power to control the factors that will potentially affect your well-being.

As a part of the ongoing healing process, the brain is constantly assessing the status of your body and communicating the need for nutrients, detoxification, repair and replacement of cells to the relevant organs, systems and body parts. These ongoing processes and communication directing them must be protected. Many factors are capable of promoting detoxification and healing, and many factors have the potential to interfere with the body’s natural communications and pre-programmed abilities. The success of your life-long journey of well-being will depend on those processes continuing uncompromised. To maintain your well-being will require you to continually stack your well-being odds by staying informed and making required changes.

CHRONIC FATIGUE: A Modern Day Challenge

Chronic Fatigue

If you have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome you may experience one or more of the following  official symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of memory or concentration
  • Sore throat
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
  • Unexplained muscle pain
  • Pain that moves from one joint to another without swelling or redness
  • Headache of a new type, pattern or severity
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise

I still remember clearly suffering from and being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. There were times that I could barely crawl, I was so weak. I felt awful all the time. Chronic fatigue symptoms can be a part of other health conditions and diagnoses.

I tried many conventional and non conventional approaches in my quest for symptom free status.  The most significant improvement in my condition in the past was ‘determining my weak list’.

What does a weak list mean?

Sometimes it means you are allergic to the items. The resulting biofeedback ‘weak response’ can be indicative of an association your body has made about a product, substance or situation in the past at a time of extreme trauma or duress. A ‘weak response’ can also mean that something is going on in the body at this time, which added to the use of the product or substance or recall of a past similar association; is a temporary bad combination (e.g. during detoxification, rapid growth, healing, recovery, hormone change, distress, treatment, medications, your body’s present chemical equation). Generally speaking it means that the item or factor is causing confusion, interference, imbalance, malfunction or damage. Sometimes it is to the immune system, sometimes to the nervous, endocrine or other systems, and sometimes to the liver or heart; all necessary to stay strong and healthy. If this happens on a daily/weakly basis the results can be catastrophic.

How do you get your weak list? 

The best way to get an unbiased weak list is to have a qualified practitioner provide you with the information. The ideal person is someone who has nothing to gain or lose by the results (e.g. sale of products). All you are looking for is a list of items or factors that cause weakness. You will use that information to avoid; so your body can rebound. The next step is to learn muscle response testing so that you have the tools to assess potential ‘weakening’ items or factors ongoing. Learning and using muscle response testing basically saved my life and allowed my body to rest. By avoiding everything on my weak lists my body focused its energies on healing and repair instead of vigilance and protection. 

Chronic fatigue syndrome does not have to be forever. You too can be 100% symptom free. You can learn the basics of muscle response testing and other rejuvenating strategies that brought me to 100% healthy and energetic in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION

Elisabeth Hines, C.N.C., C.B.P., Holistic Wellness Practitioner, www.mybodycanhealitself.ca

p.s. If a weakening item turns out to be something you absolutely can not avoid (e.g. medications for HIV or Aids), there is a way.  I have developed a protection technique that I teach clients so that the offending item or factor does not cause weakness (an override). Understandably you would not be able to do this with every item on your list. The protection sequence details can be found in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION.

NATURAL FIRST AID: Stocking Up On Natural Cures

  first_aid_cabinet Medicine

What’s Your First Source For A Cure For What Ails You?

Is your first aid choice medications or a natural cure?  What’s in your medicine cabinet? Analgesic (pain killer), anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-stress and anti-depressant medications or supplements? The first source for a cure for what ails you is often the medicine or supplement cabinet.  These strategies are necessary therapeutically at times. Some come with unwanted and harmful side effects, initially and after long term use. Many burden liver function, a serious issue in the fight against cancer and disease and the pursuit of longevity.

The Well-being Root-1

Maintaining life balance and body homeostasis is a first step in restoring and maintaining good health. Unless you are a robot, life’s stressors will at times rock your body and life’s balance. Your complex body was created with many amazing abilities and an internal pharmacy, both of which are often misunderstood and under used. Hippocrates, the father of medicine refers to them as ‘the doctor within’.

“Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work.

The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, Greek Physician (460BC-377BC)

For healing and repair the body requires quality nutrients and nurture. A diverse diet provides you with the necessary nutrients including vitamins and minerals to maintain a healthy body. Specific foods and herbs are known to repair tissue and DNA damage. Add powerful super foods with special known healing properties to your ‘natural cures’ list. I include these in my book.

First Aid Options – Your Inner Pharmacy and Amazing Abilities

Every moment of every day, without any action on your part hundreds of processes are taking place and abilities are available to you, even while you are asleep. The healthy human organism, with its complex high-tech operating system, is continually self detecting, self diagnosing, self renewing, self healing, self repairing, self cleaning and self protecting. The body has an internal pharmacy, which when functioning properly produces many natural cures: natural analgesic, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, anti-stress, sleep-inducing, immune system strengthening and gastrointestinal normalizing chemicals.[1]  Many of the body’s processes and abilities are automatic and are often taken for granted. Your body can and should be expected to provide the natural cures for many of your symptoms and health challenges without resorting to your medicine cabinet as a first stop. The mind/body healing abilities are a part of each of you, ready and available to be used. Learning how to effectively tap into and use your body’s amazing abilities and combining them with self-help therapies and tools can result in a powerful healing response and restore and maintain balance.

First Aid Solutions: nATURAL CureS In A Book For What Ails You

Let me show you how in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION, written in easy to follow steps with references for those who want a more in depth understanding. It is in essence ‘a collection of natural cures  in a book’ instead of a cabinet, for much of what ails you. The self-help strategies combine mind/body healing, neuromuscular biofeedback, visualization, rejuvenation, herbs, nutrition, goal setting and changing limiting beliefs into surpassing beliefs; natural cure to help you achieve optimum health. These natural cures can normally be safety combined with medicines and medical treatments. Check with your regular healthcare provider before using and combining strategies.  There may be contraindications due to health status, medications, treatments or other factors.

I recommend ‘greening’ your medicine cabinet’ in my holistic wellness protocol (how to guide). My green medicine cabinet is in essence a virtual medicine cabinet or green healthcare concept. My green healthcare includes many natural strategies, including mind body healing, customized visualizations, energy therapies, herbs and essential oils. Yoga and tai chi have also been significant add-ons to my ‘green healthcare’. Transitioning or complementing your current symptom relief and healing choices with natural ‘green’ strategies can provide you with the desired supports, healthier for you and the environment.

A NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK: Searching For The Cure

bale-of-hayA NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK is an idiom. According to www.usingenglish.com;

‘If trying to find something is like looking for a needle in a haystack, it means that it is very difficult, if not impossible to find among everything around it’.

That is what it can be like to unravel your collection of symptoms to find and resolve the cause.

Symptom Iceberg Analogy

Over the years in my practice as a holistic wellness practitioner, I have always been asked ‘Have you ever treated ___________ (symptom/condition)?”

My answer is always the same; “I do not treat a condition or a symptom”. The holistic approach that I use addresses and supports the whole body and whole person. This sometimes frustrates clients at first. Understandably symptomatic relief is required to be able to function and cope.  Wrapping your brain around the holistic approach may require a paradigm shift. You may have to rewrite your definition of what is possible about recovery and how health is restored. Those who can accept this new way of thinking and follow my protocol are always pleasantly surprised at how they start to feel some improvement almost immediately, and renewed health as they continue with my regime. You can read some of my client comments by clicking here.

In 2007 I started to write the basics of my holistic protocol down, with the intention of writing a ‘guide – how to book’ for my clients. I had so much information from my research and client results ‘that worked’; that needed to be written down. It was impossible to constantly simply relay all this information to clients during visits. My son Andrew felt very strongly that I needed to make this information available to the general public, because he knew it could help a lot of people; so I published my book, titled THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION in November of 2012. I knew he was write; if I knew a way for people to become healthy – I had to share it. The research information and holistic approaches restored my health and the health of my clients. The book is written in easy to follow steps with references for those who want a more in depth understanding.

IMPROVE HEALTH NATURALLY: The Whole Person Well-being Equation

“Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, Greek Physician (460BC-377BC)

The human body was created with many amazing abilities, often referred to as ‘the doctor within’.  Understanding and utilizing those often misunderstood and mostly forgotten powers is crucial to well-being.  Exploring ways to continually develop and maintain strength of mind and body will enable you to better endure the demands of life with grace and confidence; ultimately allowing you to stay focused on the pursuit of meaningful goals.  Change and fortitude often start with a healthy dose of fear.  Sometimes the fear comes through a ‘wake up call’ resulting from debilitating symptoms, a diagnosis or loss of a loved one.  Regardless of what brings you to your ‘brick wall’, being prepared is vital.  Becoming knowledgeable about the factors affecting well-being and stocking your ‘well-being toolbox’ to be ready for future health challenges is a sensible plan.  Developing a well-being plan should take the same priority as your investment, travel and retirement plans.  Well-being is a journey not merely a destination.  The information, self-help therapies and tools in this workbook and the Grace of God will not only enable you to meet the well-being challenges on your journey equipped; but will enhance your present well-being allowing you to live your life to its fullest and longest. Come along on the Health by Design well-being journey beginning within the pages of The Whole Person Well-being Equation workbook.  I guarantee it can change your life.

YOUR QUEST TO IMPROVE HEALTH NATURALLY STARTS HERE! 

LISTEN TO SOMEONE WHO SAW IT HAPPEN!
