A new patient today was asking “what’s wrong with me?” and telling me about their experience with the medical system. Now, this really frustrates me, and it has happened to me before too. When you go to the doctor you’re obviously not feeling well, yet the doctor tells you that there’s nothing wrong with you.
It’s all in your head
Has this happened to you before?
After assessing, the doctor may do testing, whether it’s just basic blood tests, or more invasive tests, like X-rays or MRI. Say they do a lot of testing, and then they find that you’re “within the reference range,” or simply nothing shows up.
So they conclude that there’s actually nothing wrong with you. And not only is there nothing wrong with you, but it’s all in your head. So what does the medical system have to offer when it’s all in your head?. They offer painkillers, pain management with painkillers, antidepressants, and anti-anxiety medication.
In one way it is in your head because your body has pain receptors that send information to your brain. So that you’re aware that something went wrong in your body. Only, there actually is something going wrong, there’s something out of balance that needs to be addressed. Pain management and anti-depressants or anti-anxiety, medications, well it doesn’t address the underlying problem of the imbalance in your body. And this is the problem.
So when you go to the doctors, and they say that there’s nothing wrong with you, it’s all in your head, just know that there’s something wrong.
You have the key
I’m certain that you know your body better than anybody else. You’ve lived with your body your entire life, you are actually connected to your body, you can feel what’s going on in your body. So it’s really important to get to the bottom of it and investigate what’s going on. You have all the insider information: your medical history, your family’s medical history. What you’ve inherited genetically: is there a gene that you have inherited that’s switched on all of a sudden. Perhaps you’ve travelled overseas, and your microbiome has changed? These things come up in Naturopathic consults.
It’s all about investigating what’s going on. All this information that you have and that you know about your body needs to be transcribed and set out in logical order to connect the dots and solve the problem of what the imbalance is.
What’s wrong with me? I hear you
So, it’s not all in your head, the imbalance is in your body. That’s what I want to let you know today. It just really annoys me when someone says there’s nothing wrong and it’s all in your head because it’s not true!
