Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational
“You don’t have to be sick, choose to be well”, Dr. Martha Nessler. I said this quote as I was ranting about a drug commercial. Americans are flooded with negative thoughts in regards to health and wellness EVERYDAY! They hear them in the car, on the TV, from friends, at work, on billboards, on business signs, etc. Every corner you turn whether in a building or on the street there are advertisements lying to you that your body CAN’T and that it needs some outside force. FRANKLY, that’s not TRUE but rather a bold face lie from big pharma and it’s cohorts. The TRUTH is that you can be well and that you can heal yourself, you just have to CHOOSE it!
Choice is an interesting thing. You are given two options or more and then you decide. Scary ,huh? Well, only if you allow it to be. If you take a deep breath and logically think, then no choice seems that scary but when in a panic well it’s little more difficult to make a logical choice, right? So, take a deep breath and read for a few seconds and at the end make the decision, do you really have to be sick? Or can you be well?
Our society tells us that we need drugs and vaccinations to feel better and function optimally and that without these drugs we will never be well. These statements and fear tactics are simply not true. We can be well and we were designed to be well. Individually we just have to decide to be well. We have to make a conscious decision to be proactive in our own healthcare and that means stepping up and stepping out. A shift in thought and belief is necessary and it’s all we need to tip the scales toward wellness.
Over the years we have been lead to believe that we are breaking down and that we eventually just fall apart. This is true and not true. It’s true ONLY if you stop taking care of yourself, if you stop making time for yourself, and stop eating right and thinking right, and stop moving. Stopping all this WILL cause you to breaking down. It’s honestly a recipe for disaster. A recipe that will create frustration and give birth to diseases and disorders and speed up the breakdown of your human body. When your body breaks down (dies) where will you live? Just as you can do NONE of this and be sick you can DO ALL of this and BE WELL. You can eat whole and live foods, get proper sleep, workout, and exercise, take time for yourself, and take care of yourself and move towards optimal health. You choose.
Let’s take this out of the perspective of the human body and talk about your car. People always take care of their cars. They see them as an asset that has value. I am here to tell you that you are an asset that has value. Cars today have a main computer system in the engine that is the master system and many adjunctive systems that all work together to allow a car to drive. In order to maintain your car, you take your car for routine checkups and have all the systems checked. Do you get routine check ups? When a light comes illuminates on the dashboard you take the car to be serviced and have the “symptom” assessed” When you have a “symptom” do you get it assessed? Let’s use your oil light as a “symptom”. If the oil light in your car comes on it letting you know that your oil level is low and that your oil needs changed. It’s imperative that you change the oil so that you don’t throw a rod and damage the engine. So, you get the oil changed because it’s a warning that let’s you know if you DON’T do it you won’t like the outcome. What if you put duct tape over the oil light? Nothing. You have just masked the symptom and the problem will get worse and your car will break down. To maintain the life of your car routine checkups are a must. The choice is yours: maintain your car and it runs forever or neglect your car and it breaks down. The only difference in a car and a human body is that you can’t get a new body.
Just like a car you have a master system, the nervous system, and a bunch of adjunctive systems that allow you to function. As humans we get warning signs (headache, indigestion, anxiety, bladder problems, etc) and they let us know that our master system needs to be addressed. Those symptoms are not telling us that we are lacking a drug or need a vaccine but rather letting us know we have one or more stressors affecting us that is causing our master system to be running low, i.e. nervous system interference. Nervous system interference is similar to “running low on oil or gas”. Interference to our nervous system falls into three different categories: chemical, physical, and emotional. In order to function optimally the stressors must be addressed or slowly (and sometimes quickly) we will break down.
Seems a little different when you put it into perspective, huh? Believe me I know. I remember the first time I was told I could live my life without being sick. At first I was like most people, I was completely shocked. After I got over the initial shock I was a little angry that I had been lied to and lead astray for so long. After I let it all go and realized how blessed I was to have been informed I became proactive in my own wellness and I have never looked back. I only look forward to my future that is so bright it burns my eyes because I no longer live in fear that I will be sick but rather look ahead and know that I will be well. I will be well because I choose to be well. What will you choose? Remember you do have a choice.
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
