Transforming illness into a self-healing journey, the next paradigm shift in medicine.
When we are sick and in pain, we try to return to health as quickly as possible. It is a natural response to seek treatments to ‘fix’ or get rid of pain and symptoms so we can return to our normal lives.
However, when the treatment doesn’t make the symptoms disappear, and we begin to suffer more physically and emotionally, the search for answers intensifies. The ensuing consequence is that we can get worn out not just from experiencing the physical problems of the health challenge, but also from our efforts to get well. This often results in feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness.
It is at this point that illness provides the opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and spiritual awakening.
