Regardless of what we do, our bodies will continue to adapt. Leave a plant in a stationary position and it will predictably grow towards the window. This is not a "wrong condition", it doesn't warrant a diagnosis, the plant is not evolving into another species, etc... it is simply adapting to it's environment.
If there is one thing humans are really good at, it's adapting. That's because there is intelligence within the design...
We are certainly not unique in our ability to adapt to our environment compared to other living organisms... but we are certainly the best at it. Other species have been eradicated from the face of the earth and some endangered and almost extinct... What makes humans unique is that we have adapted the best to the ever changing environment since the beginning of time.
Despite this amazing capacity, this seemingly miraculous ability to adapt to our conditions, we have a tendency to label such adaptations as a "condition", "morbidity" or "diagnosis" and then treat the said condition rather than fix the condition (environment) the person is adapting to.
When a biologist studies a population of fish in Lake Michigan that have been growing tumors on their bodies, rather than diagnosing and treating their tumors (condition) they look to the environment (what's contaminating the water) causing this adaptation process to occur and then creating a plan to change the environment.
Conditions are no different in humans.
Conditions are conditional.
They are dependent on the myriad of factors that we are ALL subjected to... these factors are physical, chemical, and emotional in nature. (the 3 T's - thoughts, traumas, and toxins).
We've all experienced adaptation throughout our lives. If we fall victim to falling off our bike as a kid (we've all done it), your body will adapt to that injury.
What about the physical stress of sitting all day? It adapts. What about standing all day? It adapts.
Think about how much the body adapts during pregnancy... everything from conception to hormonal changes to physical changes to mom and baby to the actual birth... it all demonstrates that the body is AMAZING at adapting.
Yet, so many experts have been taught, trained, and paid to look at these "adapting processes" through the wrong lens.
They view adapting through the lens of "something is wrong".
Low back pain 3rd trimester? Something is wrong. Here's a lotion.
You get sick all the time? Something is wrong. Here's a potion.
You have symptoms? Here's a diagnosis. Something is wrong. Here's a pill.
The Wonder and Marvel of medicine is, everyone that seems to use it are always sick and taking pills... and their consolation prize for never getting better is another diagnosis, more side effects, and more pills.
What if all those changes (good and bad) are simply the body responding to the INPUT you give it?
What if the answer you were looking for was not prepackaged in a bottle that you had to swallow 3xs per day on an empty stomach?
What if the answer you were looking for was always INSIDE of you?
What if your sickness is just a by product of the input you've been giving it for the last 10-30 years?
What if your sickness could go away by simply changing the input?
What if I told you it DOES!
But swallowing a pill is so much easier...
Would you do the work and let your body adapt and heal or just keep swallowing pills forcing your body to adapt and create dis-ease?
Either way, you're always adapting.
