The Most Important Question

I hear and read so many stories of people facing health challenges these days. For most, it seems to come as a shock. They often ask questions like - 
What do I do now? 
How can I fix this? 
Will it ever go away? 

However, the most important question to ask when facing health challenges is simply this - 

Why is the thyroid not functioning properly?
Why is the stomach always upset?
Why is the blood pressure too high?
Why are the allergies getting worse?

Very few doctors ever ask this question. Most of them simply give a name to your "condition" and start treating symptoms. 

We've seen this with my mom's recent health challenges. She had a rapid heartbeat, along with atrial fibrillation. The doctor immediately put her on medication, then he scheduled a heart shock procedure to supposedly get the heart back in rhythm. I will say that I'm grateful the doctor was able to help mom through the symptoms, which were pretty scary. (The shock procedure didn't work though). However, the doctor never asked, "Why is your heart beating rapidly? Why did it get out of rhythm in the first place?" 

These are questions my mom and I have been working to answer. So far we've discovered several contributing factors to her years of a-fib, including - arsenic in her thyroid, artificial sweetener in several organs, vit. A deficiency, and more.

Once you find some answers to the "Why...?" question, then you are able to figure out what to do, how to help your body heal, and to have hope of recovery.

Usually the answers to "Why...?" fall into a few basic categories, such as -

-toxins stored somewhere (this can be anything from pesticide to mercury to past medications and more)
-chronic infection somewhere (virus, bacteria, fungus, parasites, etc.)
-deficiency of something (vitamins, minerals, enzymes)

Also, by the time your body exhibits symptoms, there are usually several problems going on at once. So all of the above issues could be happening.

The important thing to remember when something in your body is not functioning as it should, is that there is ALWAYS a reason. If you start asking "Why...?" and do a little detective work, then you'll be ready to make a plan of what to do. And you'll be able to help the body heal and return to optimal function.

So what's your most important question today?
