It has taken me quite some time to be able to put this into words.
Lately, I have been experiencing lots of ‘ah-ha’ moments, road trip epiphanies and conversations with various people in different fields of health. This is a fiery subject for me personally, so I am eager to share a few of my thoughts with you.
Let’s dive in.
Over-Complications of Autoimmune Disease
If I had to summarize the key lesson I have learned so far, it would be this…before ‘You are what you eat’ even before Hippocrates said ‘let the food be thy medicine, let the medicine be thy food’ he said…
“All disease begins in the gut”~ Hippocrates
I know it, you know it and I am positive I am not alone here when I say that the medical community overcomplicates autoimmune diseases. I say this not from a place of dislike or needing to make them wrong and me right, but simply to give back what the medical community has robbed so many of us of…
- Trust in our own bodies
- Personal power and empowerment
Yes, I felt I was robbed in my early days. But I got everything back when I opened my mind to more than just what my gastroenterologist was telling me.
I said for years that I knew my answer would be simple. Even in the darkest times when all I could see and feel was fog, some deep wisdom echoed inside me to not believe everything I was hearing. It really was a true scenario playing out of how we have the answers we are seeking inside of us. I knew my answer would not be some pill, infusion or other medical advancement, it just didn’t seem logical – pills and infusions would buy me time, and band aid me for a short period, but that was it.
Thankfully, I used that time to look for other options, I valued the opportunity medical drugs gave me and used my time on them wisely because my intuition just knew something bigger was playing out. I am human, and there were times that I really had to spoon feed myself this inner instinct due to what outside sources were telling me. Autoimmune disease issues are viewed as complicated and hard to understand by all the medical doctors I have spoken to over the years.
In my view, they are simply uncomplicated only if you are willing to be open to more than scientific evidence and literature. I believe there is a place for science, and I value what it has done for me and the world so far – but I feel the medical community does not give anecdotal evidence the attention it deserves.
I am passionate about seeing the medical community combine these three main types of evidence and be open to the fact that something spiritual can defy scientific evidence. What if something just can’t be explained or backed by science, but it just works? And what if there can never be a scientific explanation for something?
Here’s the problem: Humans love to know “The Answer”.
We have been brought up to know the answer and if we didn’t know the answer in school – we were labeled wrong or would often receive a big red F of our test.
Some may call it social conditioning.
Right now there is very strong bridge being built between modern and holistic medicine…and everything in between. The gap is getting smaller – perhaps because people are opening up to others healing modalities such as GAPS, energetic & emotional healing and overall lifestyle and diet change which I teach in my ‘Super Life Formula’. The more you open your eyes to others modalities, you are helping build the future of sustainable healthcare.
You are playing a very important role. We all are.
So, I invite you to be open to this and the possibility that the simple solution to autoimmune disease could be, in our food, gut microbiome, thoughts and environment. Perhaps not for everyone, but for those who are ready to go on a journey that takes you from ordinary to extraordinary.
Peace, Love, Health
