If we’re chronically sick, tired, or depressed, we need an examination that includes, but goes beyond, the exact location of our symptoms. That’s because everything is inter-dependent—muscles and nerves, bodies and minds, people and planet. Each connecting thread has a domino effect on the other. Toxins in our neighborhood, for example, might cause liver damage, leading to chronic illness that makes us unable to get out of the house or work — leaving us isolated, broke, and as a result, severely depressed. In this scenario, the quick-fix of anti-depressants will overlook the root of, and therefore solution for, our depression.
To achieve and sustain optimal health, we need perspective that goes beyond the obvious symptoms. Yes, we need to zoom our lens on the area first calling for attention, but then we must pan our lens to take in the bigger picture, and finally, use our intelligence and intuition to connect all the dots in-between. We need to become aware of each area of our lives and explore how to optimize our wellness, not only within each of these areas – through nutrient-dense foods, a loving partner, artistic expression, and so on – but also through their harmonious integration.
We all have the capacity to understand the interconnected web of our health and to channel that domino effect in a positive direction. This individualized process requires exploration and experimentation, patience and perseverance, which takes time but ultimately allows us to cultivate lasting wellness. Are you ready to begin?
