Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect

Think about this.

When we get sick or experience aches and pains, it’s tempting to look for causes outside ourselves.

Convenient culprits:

Bad luck.  Like accidents or being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Germs.  Blaming illness on germs overlooks one critical ingredient—being a hospitable host by having a weak immune system!

Genetics.  The new fall guy is “bad genes.” Yet,  much of our gene expression is a reaction to our environment.

Arthritis or Old Age.  Societies expectations for how healthy we should be as we age are getting lower.  People are expecting to live longer but for some reason accepting or even expecting a lower quality of life while doing so.

We live in a world of cause and effect.

Every symptom has a cause.

It’s tempting to look to outside causes, but many health problems are the result of our own choices, beliefs and habits. Sometimes the effects can take decades to appear.

FACT: ILL HEALTH is the “result” of your body’s inability to accommodate physical, chemical or emotional stress.

Similarly, if you not only want to feel good, but have good health results, this happens when your body works the way it was designed to. Get adjusted, exercise, eat right, sleep enough and manage your stress.
