"I'm Waiting for My Diagnosis Before I Do Anything."

It astonishes me how many times subscribers to my Healing Auto Immune Disease Newsletter tell me they are not doing anything to help themselves, until their doctor labels them ! Is it lupus, fibromyalgia, arthritis, or a long list of other potential disease 'labels', all of which are inflammatory issues that have simple, common sense, safe, no cost solutions to help start the healing process !! This, all the while experiencing painful, even debilitating autoimmune symptoms such as severe fatigue, muscle pain, extreme joint pain / arthritic symptoms, fever, migraines, skin rash, hair loss, kidney issues, (etc).

The first line of defense should never include a 'wait and see what your diagnosis is' approach.

The first line of defense should include an immediate, full out attack on anything that creates inflammation! For example, a lupus diet (anti inflammatory) has shown drastic improvements for most, as do many supplements aimed at realigning the immune systems faulty 'attack' message. These are 2 of the most powerful and simple steps one suffering from an inflammatory disease can do.

Only you, not your physician, must take full responsibility for your health!

Unfortunately, the diagnosis of lupus (and other related autoimmune issues) often take months, more commonly years to diagnose, all the while a simple, natural, and effective healing protocol could have been initiated. Add to this the possibly of avoiding unnecessary hospital visits, future meds, reducing the need for current ones, and avoiding serious, often devastating side effects from prescription drugs and worsened symptoms.

Start a healing regime with natural common sense solutions to wellness that include (but not limited to):

Body- The right food / nutrients that support the healing process with lupus diet do's and don'ts, ensuring healthy digestion and absorption of food particles, supplementation, eliminating toxins, promoting an alkaline internal terrain, etc.

Mind – Stress reduction, Eastern Healing strategies, Self-Healing Visualizations, Power of the Mind / Attitude etc.

Spirit – Faith, Prayer, Meditation, Support from loved ones

… with immediate implementation!

Each of the above is a safe, natural, common sense approach that supports the body in the healing process. (Of course, get the approval of your health specialist with any change to your diet or lifestyle).

As you blast the fire of disease with everything at your disposal, have your team of experts (hopefully this includes a naturopath or alternative health expert in the mix) help you identify the root culprit so you can further target it, once it's been found.

For some it's food / digestion related, for others it's environmental / toxin related, or perhaps it's acute and / or chronic stress (as it was with me), or even meds known to trigger lupus. Many people never find the root cause of their symptoms, yet by implementing the right healing protocol still improve, if not reverse their symptoms.

In the meantime, minimize the fire and keep it from spreading!

Far too many people 'wait and see' position leads them straight into avoidable flares, even worse, serious long-term health consequences. The sad news is it could have been prevented, or at minimum significantly reduced with a pro-active, common sense natural approach to healing.

Please note, this is not to say there aren't issues specific to disease. Of course there are. However, getting on a natural, healthy protocol is in your favor. Get off the culprits that are known to be harmful to health. White foods (sugar, salt, flour, dairy), fatty foods, processed foods, and alcohol, are just a few common sense 'diet don'ts'.

Fact: The foundational principles for healing is 85% the same for all disease. Therefore, why wait for a label?

Most doctors aren't taught healing methodology. They're expertise is in disease, the diagnosis of it, and utilization of prescription drugs for a symptomatic, treatment approach that suppress symptoms versus heal the root cause. Symptom suppression can be very helpful at times and over short term, however this paradigm is a non-curative approach.

In fact, serious legal issues are now associated with people or institutions making 'curative' claims (even if claims are scientifically substantiated). Recently I was excited to hear a claim from a Canadian University, whose research …

What three motivational words can you say to yourself that will put your exercise program in overdrive and make your fitness dreams come true?

"I Want To!"

Too often we approach our fitness routines with the thought "I have to," and it produces a counterproductive attitude toward our fitness program. Say both phrases out loud (if you're in a public place you can wait till you get home … or not) and pay attention to how it feels within your body. "I have to" produces dread and a "heavy" feeling. "I want to " produces an extra pep in your step and a joy associated with whatever you want to do.

How I used this phrase to help me.

I'll be honest, getting myself to work out is not difficult at all. I just set a plan, follow it, and adapt along the way. It's one of the reasons I became a personal trainer; it has pretty much come easy to me. But there are goals I have had that have really challenged me mentally and emotionally. In fact I am going through one right now.

Back in February I threw caution to the wind and hired a French teacher to, well, teach me French. I knew French back when I was a wee tike but lost it when we moved to the States. And ever since I could remember I have wanted to relearn it. So I started doing my research, looking for a teacher, and I found Sabine. Born in France, she has a PhD in French studies and is a teacher … DING DING DING! I stalked her down and got her to meet with me, and after a nice chat I knew it would work. So even though I was still trying to build my business, take care of a baby, and learn a new city, I committed. I told her I would be with her for at least a year, and we got started.

(PS There are a lot of really good teaching points in this last paragraph about achieving your goals. You might want to go back and reread it.)

This French teacher is kicking my butt!

I was so gung ho those first couple of classes, and I was feeling really excited about finally being able to speak French. And then I got hit smack in the face with reality. I remember it really clearly, that feeling of being overwhelmed and all the negative thoughts flooding into my head. "There is no way I can learn all this." "You'll never get this." Etc., etc. I continued because I do not like to quit, but I was trying to power through these thoughts and feelings. I "had to" do this! Push Push Push!

Then the thought came to me, "I want to do this," and I felt the calmness that came with it. Done. I don't question things when they are this clear. So I started to approach learning French in this manner, and it has helped me tremendously. Do I still get frustrated and impatient? You bet I do! But I don't let it become me. Because I "want to" I can now relax, have fun, and consequently learn more efficiently.

What's running in your head?

Do you "have to" go work out? Or do you "want to"? If you "have to," you are fighting yourself and it will make accomplishing your goals exponentially harder. If you "want to," you are enjoying the process and it will allow you to get to where you want to go quicker. So add a little " want to " in your life.
