What is Dis-ease?
Dis-ease simply means life “without ease,” the inability to overcome harmful influences in our life. It doesn’t matter what your culture is. Dis-ease is the result of imbalance. Good health is a balance of body, mind, and spirit. In our society, people of all ages are at risk for the development of health-related problems. Most illness is caused by an accumulation of lifestyle and environmental factors that build up over the years. They attack our immune system, and we develop dis-ease. Some of these factors arise from toxins, distress, and the lack of life energy.
Toxic overload: Chemicals such as pesticides on our food crops, toxic waste, and antibiotics given to farm animals each year to increase their weight are passed on to us as consumers. Many of them are carcinogenic. All of these cause damage to DNA and damage our immune systems. Physical stress is a result of poor nutrition plus exposure to toxins in our diet or the world around us.
Distress: Emotional stress can also depress our immune system and make us more vulnerable to infections and dis-ease. Stress comes to us in many ways—financial state, family matters, past abuse, death, marriage, personal injury or illness, foreclosure, bankruptcy, child issues, even being in jail or anything else that creates a disturbance to our physical and emotional selves. Prolonged stress places a load on many organ systems, especially the heart, blood vessels, adrenals, and immune system.
Unbalanced energy: Electrical currents flow through the nervous system and help our body regulate itself. The nervous system is connected to every organ and tissue in our body. Signals flow through the nerves from the brain to regulate all of our bodily activities. As long as something is alive, it has life energy circulating through it and surrounding it, but when it dies, the energy is gone. If your life energy is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you are more vulnerable to illness and dis-ease. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick.
Toxic overload can be corrected by detoxification. The management and elimination of physical and emotional stress in your life will strengthen and balance your immune system. It is vital to take responsibility for your health by making life style changes.
The holistic approach to dis-ease involves finding the cause of illness and seeking the type of treatment that is appropriate for the condition. In treating dis-ease, complementary and alternative therapies are not substitutes for conventional medical care; they are used to help alleviate stress, reduce pain and anxiety, manage symptoms, and promote a feeling of well-being.
Today, many doctors agree that it takes more than drugs or surgery to cope with persistent dis-ease or stress-related ailments, therefore, holistic healthcare is becoming popular throughout the United States as it has been in other countries for centuries.
