Imagine that we had a magical medical device that could look at each person and measure their total, holistic wellness on a scale from 0 to 10. If you held it up to someone who was dead – well, that’s a 0. And if you held it up to someone in truly perfect health, not just physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually – well, that’s a 10.
Most of us live our lives somewhere in the middle. When we’re younger we may experience lives filled with exceptional wellness. But particularly as we get older, most people find themselves dealing with ever more chronic symptoms and ever higher risks of experiencing a major illness.
Western medicine is unparalleled when it comes to treating acute, life threatening illnesses. If you have a heart attack, receive a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer, or break a bone – go to the hospital! But it’s much less effective when it comes to prevention, treating chronic problems, or moving from a place of acceptable health to one of exceptional wellness. That’s where holistic medicine comes in.
Our bodies have a remarkable capacity for healing, and it’s relatively rare for people who are living from a place of exceptional wellness to suddenly develop an acute, life threatening illness. Instead, what looks like a sudden condition is usually the result of a long, slow decline in health that was signaled by an ever increasing list of nagging, low level chronic symptoms. Allergies, digestion problems, low energy, chronic pain, weight gain, mood issues, sleep problems – these are a few of the “early warning signs” our bodies give us, to let us know that we have something that needs to be healed.
The challenge is that all too often, and with the best intentions, people will mask or numb out these symptoms, rather than healing them. For example, when dealing with chronic conditions, most prescription drugs are designed to suppress one or more symptoms, rather than healing the root dysfunction. And while this can work for a while, over time it makes the problem worse.
At the Exceptional Wellness Center, we help people discover and treat the root causes of their chronic conditions, and help them move from a life spent “just getting by” to a life filled with exceptional wellness. In doing so, we’ve found in the majority of cases, a number of supposedly “incurable” conditions can actually be healed, such as allergies, asthma, diabetes and chronic fatigue syndrome. And we’ve also helped many autistic children increase their level of functioning, often to levels beyond what their parents believed possible.
