Listen To Your Body

How often do we indulge in delicious food and don't give it a second thought until later when our belly's hurt or we have a headache or we're bloated?  For years we live like this.  Our bodies are trying to tell us something but we're not listening.
Mostly we don’t know how poorly we feel until we feel better.  In fact, most of us think fatigue, digestive problems, aches and pains, allergies, headaches, and more are just annoying symptoms.  - Advanced BioCell 
In reality, they are the clues our bodies give us to let us know something we're eating is harmful.  It is important for you to take note of why your body is responding with these signals and what it is trying to tell you. 

Brad's body has been trying to tell him something isn't quite working right inside.  He has been puffy and his belly is distended.  He's got another symptom, too, that keeps him close to a bathroom on some days.  Lately, he's been looking like he hasn't lost almost 30 lbs.
Your body is your greatest source of information. In a time where there is so much technology, we can easily turn to the internet to attempt to diagnose our symptoms; however, often times it simply means listening to your body and trusting yourself to know what you feel.  - Lynn Keating LAc, Port Washington Patch, Feeling off balance?

Brad is thinking he shouldn't be eating either dairy, eggs, or chocolate. He has been trying to stay away from these three things for a few weeks, but they are so tempting to him.  Today he is on day 3 or 4 of not eating these things.  This morning, when he woke up his belly was not distended.  That's a good sign.  He's going to give it a few more days of fasting these foods and then one at a time reintroduce them to his system, paying close attention to what his body tells him.

Are you listening to your body?
