Let’s look at Alphie’s Pre-Symptoms. The Chronic Health Challenges he was experiencing before he started to work with us here at the Functional Health Clinic.
It’s hard to imagine how it would feel to be experiencing all of these symptoms quite constantly and all together.
Some of these are quite severe and debilitating. Certainly having quite a dramatic impact on quality of life. Yet, in many ways they were being managed with medication and had been for many years.
One one hand it is great to have the capacity to manage such pain and symptoms. But on the other hand, it wasn’t exactly a solution to them.
Plus – Alphie had goals beyond just taking the medications for the rest of his life, no question.
Furthermore, it’s quite possible that some of these pre-symptoms were actually caused by having to take the medication. So there were both sides to it. Pros and Cons. Advantages, Disadvantages.
We were interested inn what was causing these symptoms such as Acid reflux, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, severe bloating, belching and so on.
After all – there must be a cause. Drivers of this dysfunction.
As you look through this list of symptoms you can almost see how it had unfolded over the years of Alphie’s experience. The digestive challenges leading to disrupted sleep. Chronic lack of sleep leading to inability to repair and heal. Ongoing gut challenges. Loss of appetite. Decrease in nutrient status. Further inability to restore and repair. Exacerbated poor sleep. Increasing fatigue…….
This would be a vicious cycle.
It would typically continue, unless you change something and intervene, or influence it somehow.
That’s what we set out to do for Alphie.
