What is good health?
Good health can be defined many different ways. For example you may be told that, as you don’t have any aches or pains and your blood tests are fine, you are healthy. But sometimes a person feels that there is something wrong and they just don’t feel right. As I see patients from babies to the elderly I am able to see the progression of disease as people are exposed to the challenges of life. For example a young woman in her late teens or early twenties may come in with a superficial problem such as a skin condition. After further discussion I may discover that the real cause is suppressed emotions such as anger, grief, or indignation which, for example, may have come from an abusive relationship. As she is young and vital her body is able to carry on and only develop minor illnesses. A busy women around thirty plus with a couple of young children to care for and perhaps a husband that works away has much less vitality, and if still present these suppressed emotional issues will start to emerge as more troublesome complaints such as depression or chronic fatigue. Once reaching middle age and beyond our vitality is naturally less and if emotional stress has not been dealt with it can contribute to the development of more serious health conditions such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes. The good news is that we can attend to any emotional issues you may have and by doing so can make a great improvement in your health and happiness.
