One of the most valuable things I've learned in the last few years is that God created our bodies with the ability TO HEAL.
At first that may sound like common sense. After all, we can watch our bodies heal things like cuts and bruises every day.
Unfortunately, the "modern" medical mindset is very different. Most doctors don't try to find the source of a health problem. They don't try to "heal" the problem. They just prescribe drugs to "manage" the problem or alleviate the symptoms. That's why so many people are sick and getting even sicker.
But when a doctor understands that God designed our bodies with the ability to heal, they have a totally different approach. And they usually have more positive results of people actually getting well.
For those of us with E.I. this is probably the best news we could hear: YOUR BODY CAN HEAL!
I am continually amazed at the awesome way God has designed the human body! In this toxic world, our bodies are often overwhelmed and can't keep up with the amount of "repairs" that must be done. Yet when we give our bodies a little extra help (see the recent posts about my "Extreme Makeover: Health Edition"), it's incredible how quickly these bodies can respond and how hard they work to heal.
Healing is a process, and it takes time. But it is possible! Wherever you are today in your health journey, be encouraged. You were made to heal.
