The Balance in Your Body

finding the meaning of dis-ease

Dr_Alisha_MoadabHere is goes another health article, but this one isn't a check list of do's and don'ts to prevent something. This article is targeted at what to do, when you have done everything you could: you ate your protein and veggies, drank half your weight in water, breathed deeply, ate fruit and nuts as snacks, avoided sugar, drugs and alcohol, all three of which are equally addictive. On top of this you took your Vitamin D, fish oil, and antioxidants, along with a daily dose of physical activity!

Now what? You sound unstoppable with this laundry list of activities that are supposed to paint the picture of good health. What happens when all this fails? What do you do when you find yourself dealing with something you were trying to prevent, from the common cold, other infection, diabetes, cancer, or some other malady?

Why is often a question we ask ourselves when something in life doesn't go the way we wanted. Why do bad things, like sickness, health challenges, or dis-ease happen to good people? Why, is because there are some things that are beyond us, one of which is our health. “ The World Health Organization  (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' “ [1]

When you are faced with a ill-health, find your centeredness. Our health is an interplay of forces, seen and unseen. Go within yourself and find serenity as you surrender to something bigger then your efforts and their effects. Look for the meaning, what can you gain or grow from, if your health can be a learning lesson? If you have trouble coming up with something on your own, try this for entertainment, and of course, don't take this or anything else too seriously, for the spiritual meaning underlying diseases, take a look at .

Usually, I encourage people that health is in their own hands, of which I think is nearly ninety percent true, the other piece of it, we need to reconcile with, so at the end of each day, you are balanced with in yourself, you've done all you can do, and sometimes you just need to remember to relax and stop doing, and be a human-being.

Be Well and Be in Balance to your best ability!
