Generally speaking by the time IC has hit, it was brewing in the body for many many years. A big part of becoming well, is rethinking all of the things we have done to make us UN-well, and with technology changing at the speed of light, it's hard to keep up with everything we have to protect ourselves against. However, I choose to not live afraid of everything and thinking about the many fear provoking issues I could. I concentrate on the things in my immediate surroundings and try to do my best to have a vclean body and clean immediate environment.
The past few months I have had three patients come back into treatment who have been non symptomatic for several years. When we delved into the "why" it became clear that it was related to diet. The big S word! and the big A word. Yes! SUGAR and ALCOHOL! Neither of which really have purpose in our diets in my opinion. When asked, "but I was feeling normal and so I went back to eating 'normally', so I dont understand!" I responded, yes, you were feeling normal, so youi should go back to eating normal, but...what is normal? What IS normal?
First of all, since I have not said it as of yet, Happy New Year! I hope this will be a year filled with health and happiness for all, especially those who have worked so hard to acheive it and have felt let down by "life". Although I search everyday for the answers to why some have journies that seem so effortless while others seem to struggle on end, I continue to lack the answers to those questions.
