As I continue the theme of freedom creates the sweet life, I am going tell you something that you might not want to hear or acknowledge. If you are taking medication for anything, you are not well!
There are so many people that I meet that say they want to get well but they don’t really want to do any work to get well. I am going to tell you the truth.. in order to get well, you will have to do something different than what you have been doing in the past. If you want to stop taking medications, you have to do something different or your body will not heal and get better. If you have tried fad, diets, medications, starting and stopping exercise programs, sitting in your doctor’s office time and time again and your health has not improved, you will have do something different. And you will have to make a choice to invest in yourself and in your health.
I think this quote from Gloria Steinem says it best, "The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off."
People come into my office seeking help and when I tell them the truth about how long it will take them to get well they get upset with me. Don’t shoot me down as the messenger, I am here to support you and help you get results you seek. I just will always tell you the truth to help you get there.
If you want to lose 50 pounds, it is not going to happen overnight. If your blood work values are high, you will have to work on your health goals for a few months before you start to see results. You didn’t become unwell overnight, so you are not going to get well instantly either.
If you get pissed when you hear that, if you want be healthy, you have do something different... Get pissed at the disease that is in your body. Get pissed at diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, cancer, arthritis or whatever chronic disease you have.
Get pissed that the disease is robbing you of your energy, your youth, your vitality, your time with your family and friends and your dreams for yourself.
Get pissed... and then do something about it and make a change. Decide to make an investment in your health. Decide to learn about how to take your health back. Decide that you will work with the experts in our practice to get you to a new level of health that you haven’t been able to get to by yourself.
The truth is that you deserve to be free from pain, fatigue, or taking medications for the rest of your life. We have a proven track record of helping people get optimal wellness. But it only happens when people get pissed enough at being sick to make a change.
