I have had a different life for the last five weeks. Since my tendon rupture, I have been blessed with time away from life. Time that would let me get so much caught up… only if I had two hands. :(
So I have ramped up my consultations. I know many of my patients don’t know that I do these, but spending time doing consultations is the only way I have maintained so many profound cases over the years. Cancer and heart disease, auto-immune conditions, GI tract conditions… there is so much to delve into, and the method that we like to employ, which is primarily group education, simply does not work in this realm.
I have had some awesome relationships that have started from these consults, and I have shared in some great blessings, and some awful heartache. They don’t always end in positive results, but the most direct, simple task is at hand in every consult. Create a health goal.
I just had a new consultation today, where we began discussions that I know will help this person develop a healthy weight loss, and a habit towards lifelong hormonal function. When I share in this kind of direction, I must say that it is one of the greatest successes that I get to share in… prevention. I have helped many people fight through a more serious battle with a significant diagnosis, but it really is rewarding to help someone get on a path that might just mean that they won’t ever get that big diagnosis.
But back to the diagnosis. In the last eighteen months, I have had six patients who I have helped through a Lyme diagnosis. Three who I have done consultations with… which has increased my understanding a lot. But six… three… these aren’t big numbers. However as many of you know, my Lyme knowledge has grown more significantly because patient number one is my wife. When her diagnosis of Lyme disease came, it was the moment which reading and study became important. But in that, there is another great point that I came away with.
All disease treatment must first stem from philosophy. When you start chasing a disease, it can all go wrong really quickly by opening up your mind to someone who comes across as an expert. Well… an expert what? If it is an MD they likely are great at medicating your disease. If it is a Naturopath, great at treating you with herbals… but is this great at helping you get cured? We used an MD, a Naturopath… another Naturopath, and then have done the rest on or own.
The MD was primarily for testing, the first ND was more testing and some initial treatment ideas, the last ND was also more testing, and a smidgen of their treatment. I can tell you, the same applies to me. If you were to sit with me for my recommendations, you should first read my blog and know my philosophy, as it will be my bend.
You were made by God. You are not weak. You can be healed, and it starts from letting the inside work. Inside out healing. I am focused on that. I honestly think the craze for treating everything is a serious mistake. Whether it be a drug, a supplement, or an oil… none of it sounds like trust in building a body that was made by God.
Hope this gives you some enlightenment. Be well and be blessed. - Dr. E
