I used to be the sort of Mom who would take her kids to the doctor every time they were sick. Whenever they had a fever I would give them ‘Calpol’ (the Tylenol equivalent in England), bundle them up, and take them to see the doctor.
Until I couldn’t anymore.
My son was becoming a regular visitor at the local doctor’s office because he seemed sick so often, with one thing or another. None of it was life threatening – thankfully, but it sure took it’s toll on us with sleepless nights and excessive crying – and no reason.
You may have heard this before, but my son was the reason I HAD to find a new way to look at health.
Every visit to the doctor gave us one more ‘band aid’ solution, but really we were just fire fighting. We couldn’t get to the root of why he was sick. I figured it was purely physical and if we treated it, everything would heal.
What I didn’t really understand at a very deep level was how much our body is controlled by our mind. I thought it was the other way round!
Apparently, it doesn’t work quite like that!
