I think somewhere along the way on our journey of day to day living, many of us started thinking that getting rid of a symptom meant we were fixed, balanced or healed. I guess like everything else these days we like the fast fix, I mean we love fast food, and well fast everything. I think the magic wand quick fix solutions at every drug store promising a solution to the annoying symptoms we just cannot deal with has become the only choices we think to consider. Now after thinking that way for a while now we are actually frustrated when something does not relieve a problem in a fast and in a quick amount of time. Somewhere along the way we stopped taking responsibility for the actual health problem, and stopped even considering that we may personally be responsible for the unhealthy outcome. I get it, stress comes at us from every angle, and lots of it, and we have made ourselves busy every day, whether or not we actually were doing anything important or not, many times we just think we are too busy.
When I do a sit down consultation and we are talking about healthy solutions including diet, exercise, sleep, and healthy supplements, I am so frequently taken back when I am asked if they need to stay on this program forever, and when can I eat what I want? Does that strike you odd? I mean you are trying to change all the things that got you sick or unhealthy, and before you are barely started with the process you want to know how long until you can go back to where you are getting away from now? We are creatures of habit, and I have seen hundreds of times that when you stick to the program and commit to the changes for a 3 or more week period of time, the results are so strong that you will not want to go backwards. But if your will is not strong, and you give in right away you will slide back to square one faster than you can imagine.
So the bottom line is work with someone who has the knowledge to help you paint the healthy path to follow, and pull your patience out of your back pocket and commit to change.. You deserve it.
