When we choose to eat food that our body does not recognize as "real food", it creates stress and a lack of proper nutrition. Thankfully, our body is very intelligent and will figure how to keep us alive and functioning. But, when we continually consume deficient food and/or toxic food day after day, week after week and year after year, our body gets weak from trying to function without proper nutrition and our systems break down. Once organs can no longer function properly, we experience symptoms.
So, what do symptoms really mean? In essence, they are an alarm, a way for our body to tell us something's wrong and needs a change. Ideally, when we feel a symptom we would choose to do something different to correct the problem: rest, stretch, stop eating or drinking certain foods, turn off the computer, get fresh air and sunlight, etc. However, we often get so caught up in just wishing for symptoms to go away we never make the changes needed for that to happen or, we don't really know what those changes should be? We start to think this is our “normal” and we forget what vibrant health looks and feels like. Sometimes our body is really asking us for an improved lifestyle.
So how do we figure out exactly what we need to heal and become vibrant again? Hippocrates said it best "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
