holistic health

The debate about what's healthy

If you ask ten people what they think is healthy you will probably get ten different answers. It's a highly subjective thing. Or it's a media thing. Or it's a current research thing. Or it's a trend thing. Whatever, it varies. 

To me, health is love. It's common sense and it's individual. 

Hating the way your body look and therefor dragging yourself to the gym to do something you don't enjoy is not loving, therefore not healthy. 

Blaming your body for its flaws and punishing it with shutting off its signals (your symptoms) with suppressants is not loving, therefore not healthy. 

Loving you and loving the tool you got to express yourself here (your body) is the way to a healthy life. 

Listen for the signs. Ask for the guidance. And love what is. No matter what is. Because the opposite will never take you to wherever you want to go. You can't force yourself to true holistic health, but you can definitely flow there, with love. 

With all my love,

The doctor won't have all the answers for you

Even though we sometimes need conventional medicine. Even though it saves lives every day. Even though it has it's obvious benefits. It doesn't have all the answers. It will not solve everything for you. 

Listen to the doctor. Take the advice. Then, listen in. Do what you can. Don't give your power away. You are still responsible for your life, no matter what. Even if you decide to take the pill, reflect on how you can support the healing in your own way. Do you need some extra hours of sleep through this challenge? Could you eat in a way that truly supports your body? Do you need to talk to a professional or someone you trust to deal with the emotions that come up? 

There is no black or white in healing. We all need to find our own way. A complimentary way. You need to find your own. 

With all my love,
