"The power for an amazing life is already within you."
After a long cold, snowy winter it is wonderful to finally start witnessing the first signs of spring. Spring, for many people, also means the start to their seasonal allergies. At a recent social gathering I was rather shocked to learn how common seasonal allergies are for many; more shocking was the inherent belief that seasonal allergies were normal, and that it is something that the individual is going to have to live with for the rest of their life, while medicating themselves.
Seasonal allergies are far from normal, and the fact that they are so common means that many do not have an optimally functioning body.
Our body is an ever-adapting organism. As you read this your body is making literally
billions of different chemicals that are: digesting your food, regulating your blood sugar, killing cancerous cells, helping your breathe, filtering your blood, and all this without you even thinking about it!
Spring is a time of environmental rejuvenation. The environment is waking up. Much like our body produces chemicals, nature also produces different chemicals that help it come back to life. Your body’s lack of ability to properly adapt to the changing environment is what we label as a seasonal allergy.
It is always amazing how people blame the environment for their allergies. They say things like “this ragweed pollen is making me sick.” They ignore the fact that I breathe the same ragweed pollen that they do, yet I don’t have any allergies. The difference is not the pollen, the difference is how our bodies react to the pollen. My body adapts properly; yours does not. The answer to helping you solve your allergy problem is by changing your body.
Unfortunately, when most people think about changing their body, they think that pharmaceuticals are the solution. Drugs do change your body. However, there is no quick fix for a toxic environment. Anyone who has taken allergy medication knows that it will work for a period of time and then its effect will gradually begin to decrease. In response to this decreasing effect, most people will begin taking more medication (only to suffer the same fate), switch medications (again same fate as before), ADD another medication (same fate), or start taking allergy shots.
My heart goes out to you, and that is why I am writing this information this month. The principles of Life By Design help restore your body from the inside out. We help your body respond properly to its environment. Once your body is in a state of harmony, adjusting to what nature is doing will be simple, efficient and most importantly of all comfortable.
You can read more about the principles of Life By Design in all our past blogs and newsletters on our website or call to book an appointment and we can discuss in person.
