Obstacles to Cure
True healing of a chronic disease requires the sufferer to take some responsibility for making some changes or improvements to his/her lifestyle.
There are many aspects of modern living which are detrimental to health, and which can often be obstacles to regaining health. Drugs and other quick fixes can only remove symptoms temporarily in chronic illness. In order to truly conquer chronic illness, the patient and the practitioner need to work together to identify potential obstacles.
If the patient is prepared to work on removing these obstacles to healing, the organs of elimination are freed up so that normal metabolic processes can start working again. This is essential before intervention with forms of energy medicine such as Homeopathy, Acupuncture and Quantum SCIO treatments can be fully effective.
Here follow some examples of Obstacles to Cure:
- smoking nicotine
- excessive alcohol intake
- abuse of addictive, mind altering drugs
- certain pharmaceutical drugs
- poor diet, e.g. excessive or insufficient consumption of certain foods and nutrients
- consumption of foods to which one is intolerant or allergic
- excessive intake of preservatives, chemicals or other pollutants in the diet
- excessive load of toxic heavy metals. See Heavy Metal Toxicity.
- insufficient intake of water
- mental pollution i.e. excessive negative emotions or stresses
- perceptions about health and disease e.g. cultural or societal traditions
- lack of awareness, or rigidity about change
- physical inactivity
- *poor time management, e.g. excessive time pressures
- *lack of regular, good quality sleep
- *dysbiosis in the gut, See Leaky Gut Syndrome. See also Lifestyle Modification.
Some of the above obstacles may take on more importance than others, depending on the nature of the chronic disease. The best progress will be achieved by correcting or removing all the relevant obstacles. This is usually very difficult to do all at once, as habits become entrenched and changes difficult to make. A determined and positive mindset should be the first and foremost goal; if this can be achieved the other lifestyle changes become much easier. Aim to make small steps at first by making changes one at a time, at a pace with which one can cope. Soon the changes gather momentum rather like a snowball gaining speed.
Many chronic diseases will be resolved by merely removing the obstacles, and facilitating the body’s natural ability to self-heal. If needed, further steps towards health can be taken with the aid of a variety of integrative medical therapies.
