There has increasingly been a lot more understanding that natural means of healthcare are effective and is now widely sought out. However, I warn against falling into the trap of using x for condition y that is so commonly used. These protocols, or recommendations, are information. They are not intended to be taken as the thing to do. Protocols are clear. They are easy to understand. These recommendations are also full of chemical isolates that work like a drug. Balance is always the key is restoring health in a bioregulatory way. Chemicals do not have healing properties, nor create biochemical balance. This isn’t to say that we cannot benefit from the use of temporary chemical intervention; extreme measures for extreme conditions that have been improperly addressed or failed to be addressed in a timely manner.
Experienced and highly trained professionals in the healing arts and healthcare field should avoid recommending standardized protocols. There is not a one size fits all and consumers fall prey because it's an easy method to go with. Scroll down to November's post to see the C19 Protocol comparison chart within my document in the blog titled "My Immune Protocol" that is downloadable. It elaborates on the point I am making here and helps you to rethink the supplements you've been taking. Remember, a way of addressing one's health that consists of the same model in which western medicine prescribe is still western medicine and likely has side effects.
You don’t want to be supplementing based solely on symptomology either. This is when your practitioner considers how you are feeling and applies their knowledge and repertoire of what works for what maladies. On this note, I have a new and awesome software to catalog your symptoms in relation to the body systems. The program creates a Report of Findings and is good information that I take into account when building one's healthcare plan. This is a great place to begin, as a though intake is part (but not all) of my holistic healthcare methods. Check it out HERE. Simply create your log in (and save your password information as we will want to compare and contrast your symptoms in the future) then complete the secure form. Tracking your progress in this way monitors how you are doing, and the successes made that you may not have realized otherwise.
Objective in-house testing makes your wellness plan solid, based on your individualized needs and affordable. Are you ready to have confidence in what you are taking and/or doing? This is what I provide; objective methods of evaluating what your needs are. For example, metabolic testing tells us your oxidation level (a marker of tissue damage/inflammation), what form of exercise is healthy and what would cause more damage via oxidation, and much more.
Naturopathic healthcare is diverse and has roots in prevention with emphasis on maintaining one’s health. Restorative methods to wellness are my specialty. I work with the nervous system to uncover causative factors and bring back integration of the mind and body connection. This allows the body to self-correct along with the correct nutrition and lifestyle interventions.
