vs. True Healing
If you develop headaches, the conventional doctor may recommend a medication for the pain. And while this can provide relief, it doesn’t address the cause of your headaches. Headaches can be caused by dehydration, food reactions, toxic chemicals, tight muscles, stress, and more.
So, the medication takes your headache away, but your body is still out of balance under the surface.
In reality, the headache was merely a symptom of a deeper disturbance in your body.
Symptoms are key indicators that something’s not right, and your body will communicate with you by bringing it to your attention.
But if we label those symptoms as “disease,” rather than seeing them as indicators that are trying to tell us something, we will only be working on the surface level and masking symptoms.
When symptoms are masked without getting to the root of the problem, it’s called suppression.
Suppression often yields results that are minimal or short-lasting, and it usually leads to more health issues down the road.
Suppressing symptoms is like fanning away the smoke while letting the fire continue to burn.
If we eradicate those symptoms without tackling the underlying imbalances, we’re silencing your body and ignoring the roadmap that would show us the way to your healing.
