The first step of healing is to STOP doing what’s making you sick. These are your blocks to healing.
Often people want to skip this step and skip ahead to the next step which is to start adding things to make you well. This is like trying to pour water into a cup with a lid on it. You have to remove the blockage first (the toxic substance or pathogen). Then the body can receive nourishment and energy.
If you continue to poison yourself or expose yourself to toxicity, without removing the blocks to healing, you may get marginal results and symptom relief, but you won’t get to the root of healing. You cannot build and tear down simultaneously AND expect efficiency. The body will not let go of toxins it’s still being exposed to.
This behavior will spin your wheels and waste time/energy/resources which is demoralizing and reinforces the painful belief that healing is impossible or ‘natural healing doesn’t work’. Habits of binging and purging don’t help either. Again it just reinforces erroneous beliefs about healing. Following the principles of Real Healing will lead to long term results.
Oftentimes with clients I find in order to Stop doing the harmful thing we have to change their beliefs so they know it’s possible and we weed out the erroneous or limiting beliefs preventing healing. When the body clears enough energetic baggage it starts to reset its homeostatic set point so it doesn’t crave the toxic thing anymore.
Another big part of this first step is understanding how the toxic thing is poisoning oneself so one has the motivation and desire to want to cease doing it. It’s often not until one understands the consequences of their behavior or a toxic substance, that they feel inclined to change it. Often, people need to hit rock bottom in order to be motivated to change. When someone’s had enough pain they become determined to turn it around. Because they have to. They become open to healing possibilities they weren’t open to before. They become open to putting down the poison or stopping the harmful behavior.
Healing is often more about subtracting than adding. Your body is already a miraculous healing force of nature. It KNOWS how to heal if you stop poisoning it. It will lead you to the right information, people and resources if you BELIEVE it’s possible.
My first assessment with clients is to ascertain their blocks to healing. Then we remove them- one by one, layer by layer. This allows me to reset the body's organ systems and restore functionality. Then we give the body what it needs to support physical recovery.
This is the formula for lasting results.
