What is the first sign of sickness?

Signs and symptomsI had an interesting discussion with one of my clients yesterday. We were discussing symptom-based medicine and how much of what goes for healthcare today is really reactionary. I was explaining how separation from our true nature was at the heart of all disease. Another term for separation in this regard is inconsistency. When we live in an inconsistent manner with respect to our true selves, we open the door to any number of diseases and sub-clinical sicknesses.

What I mean by this is that wellness is our natural state in this human experience. We are constantly bombarded with opportunities to squander this innate wealth. This is what it means to be human. If we were indestructible, we would be called gods.

So it goes that adversity is part of this Earth-bound stage of our existence. All along our journey, we are presented with choices. When we choose wisely, we are rewarded though not in any detectable way. A positive experience is only felt when we have negative experiences to provide a point of reference.

These negative effects act as the contrast upon which we define our own health.

For each of us, our fallibility presents in unique ways. For those of us with gluten intolerance, we may experience gastrointestinal symptoms when we stray from ours optimal diet. Others are more prone to hyper acidity or acid reflux. Yet, others may develop unexplained skin rash when they indulge in their unique vices.

Still, I wonder if we aren’t more vulnerable I’m the non-physical arena as a rule. Our mental-emotional performance may be a more useful measure of our health.

While standing in line at the grocery store today, I observed a 5-6 year-old boy yelling at his mother and making a half-hearted attempt to kick her in the shin. This was prompted by her refusal to buy him a candy bar. She did nothing in response and seemed unaffected. I thought nothing of this (other than how I wouldn’t tolerate such behavior) because I knew nothing of this mother’s health status nor mental-emotional state…until the checker asked the mother how she was. The mother replied, “I’m so tired…” This information combined with the foods she was purchasing and her physical shape gave me all the permission I needed to draw a few quiet conclusions. I knew this lady was suffering inside. Her medical chart may not indicate as much but by this brief encounter, I was fairly confident that I could help her with her emotional health given the chance. I sunk in to a momentary depression when I began to think about how her state affected her home life with as a mother and wife.

imagesThese often neglected sub-clinical diseases are almost exclusively addressed by wellness practitioners and those preoccupied by optimal human function. Unless she regularly meets with a mental-health professional, this dynamic will become “normal life” for this family. How many of us find ourselves lashing out at the undeserving soul who happens to cross our path at the wrong time?

In efforts to bring full balance back to the forefront of health, Sean Croxton has gathered some of the most prolific sexual health professionals in the wellnessphere.
