1 | Struggling With Symptoms
Pain and stiffness are two very common symptoms that a lot of people deal with, but when chronic, they are NOT a normal part of a healthy life.
Symptoms like back pain, headaches, muscle stiffness, knots in your back, sciatica or sciatic pain, numbness and tingling are alarm signals telling your body that something needs to change.
Using pills (supplements), ointments or other symptom reducing methods are usually the first line of defence to suppress these alarm signals. In short they turn off the alarm, but long term they may allow the underlying problem to progress and the symptoms manifest more frequently and more intense.
In essence it's like you are responding to a fire alarm and instead of putting out the fire, you take the batteries out of the alarm. Just because the alarm is off does not mean the problem is solved.
2 | Finding The Root Cause
Have you ever heard of someone that is in seemingly good health, all of the sudden deteriorate. This happens a lot more than you think, most of the time those warning signs (symptoms) are there but we tend to overlook them and put them on the back burner for later.
What happens is that fire continues to smoulder and eventually causes a lot more damage?
The same is true in your body if we ignore the alarm signals. My goal is to not only help you with your symptoms but get to the root cause of your problem so it not only feels better short term but does not become a bigger problem that can affect your quality of life.
