The language of the body: Why just treating symptoms will never result in true health


Any body, whether it be animal or human, is a more complex creation than it appears. A body can be measured, seen and felt, but it is more than the simply physical. There is an unseen force that drives a body, a subtle life force energy, that separates the living from the dead. This life force, referred to by ancient cultures as qi or prana or some variation of these words, is what ultimately determines the health of a body.

Almost all healing arts recognize the importance of this unseen force and its critical influence on health. Inversely, conventional medicine refuses to recognize the unseen force, simply because it cannot be measured in a lab or seen under a microscope. And so modern medicine only continues to treat symptoms, which is really a backwards way of doing things if you know of the importance of things not seen.

Defining Dis-ease

Disease, which breaks down as "dis-ease," is simply a disruption or disharmony in the life force field which manifests in the physical body as symptoms. In order to truly heal the dis-ease, we must treat at the level of causation. Basically, ask ourselves why and from what source the dis-ease is coming from, rather than just covering up the symptoms.

Symptoms are in simple terms the language of the body, the body's way of telling us that there is a disruption or disharmony in the life force energy. Symptoms are treated by modern medicine as "bad," but in actuality they are not bad or good, they are simply the body's way of telling us that we are in disharmony.

It's all really so simple. But unfortunately, in our overly technological world we over-think things, which blinds us to the simple wisdom of how the body actually works. If modern medicine acknowledged this fact, medical school would be a very different animal, so to speak, training modern physicians not about things we can see but about things of equal importance that we cannot.
