Too often, people tend to treat the symptoms rather than what is actually going on in your body that causes those symptoms. Today I’ll be discussing how interrelated structure and function are through mapping out how they are tied into anatomy and physiology. I will share my simple 3 part formula to reach a real solution that heals your body starting from the root of the problem.

It’s time to stop throwing medicine at surface issues and judging ailments based on feeling. We tend to pay attention to feeling before considering how things in our body are functioning so I talk about how this is backward and why it needs to be changed. I’ll also break down the stressors involved, how to identify them correctly and treat them effectively.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • The benefits of stinging nettle and where to get it.
  • The problems with judging too much by ‘feeling’.
  • Why you should be paying attention more to how you’re functioning.
  • Mapping out anatomy, physiology, structure, function and how they are intertwined.
  • Breaking down your stressors one by one.
  • A 3 part formula to accomplish the solution.
