A symptom is a message from the body – if you simply put on a band aid, it will get louder. ~ Dr Shawna Darou
In Your Health History – It’s All Relevant, I explained the importance of completing a thorough medical history form when visiting your healthcare professional. But sometimes it’s difficult because we’ve been ignoring our symptoms. Or we’ve suppressed them with prescription or over the counter medications, or other substances, and have forgotten how we felt before.
A Symptom is a Message from the Body, written by Dr. Shawna Darou, is a thought-provoking reminder to listen to your body. She outlines examples of different symptoms, including skin problems, migraines and menstrual pain, and their potential root causes.
Shawna and I have been collaborating for years. Like naturopaths, osteopaths seek to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms. Our treatments differ but are highly complementary and together provide a comprehensive and synergistic approach to client care.
The next time you experience an ache, pain or any other symptom, pause, take a few deep breaths and connect with your body. A few mindful minutes might help you discover what your body is trying to tell you.
