Symptoms vs. Cause

What’s your go-to remedy for …

  • Headaches – is it Tylenol or Ibuprofen?
  • Fatigue – maybe coffee or a soda?
  • Low energy – do you opt for the energy drink or chocolate?
  • Heart burn – is your DOC (drug of choice) Nexium or Prilosec?
  • Constipation – do you take Laxatives or fiber?
  • Diarrhea – is it Kaopectate or Imodium that soothes your symptoms?
  • Neck or low back pain – do you take OTC painkillers for muscle aches and pains?

Or maybe you take a natural approach and use herbs or supplements to get relief.

What do you do to feel better?

Temporary Relief vs. Permanent Fix

Whether you use OTCs, prescription drugs, herb, supplements, homeopathics or any other natural remedy to relieve your discomfort, you’re still just treating the symptoms. Addressing the symptoms is not going to eliminate the problem. It’s just going to delay it until the next time, and the next time and the next time. Eventually it may evolve into a bigger, more serious problem.

Have you ever had a doctor tell you we’ll just watch it? Waiting for it to become a disease so they can prescribe a drug when it fits into the “pill for every ill” model.

Instead of looking for what you can do to get rid of your symptoms, have you ever asked yourself …

What is causing this problem?

Why do I have headaches, fatigue, low energy heartburn, ets.?

If you had a splinter in your hand, would you take a pain killer, or would you remove the splinter?

If you burned your hand on the hot stove, would you leave it there and ask what you can take to relieve the pain? Or would you immediately remove you hand from the burner?

Taking a drug to kill your symptoms is like plugging a hole instead of fixing the leak. Eventually it gets to be like mopping the floor when the water is still on and overflowing.

Does it really solve the problem?

Maybe temporarily until the symptoms show up again and you repeat the process.

Symptomatic Relief vs. Correcting the Cause

What if instead of looking for a pill to fix your ills, you asked, what is causing me to feel this way?

Why does it keep happening over and over, every day, every week, every month?

What can I do to stop the vicious cycle and start feeling better?

How can I get rid of the symptoms for good?

I’m glad you asked.

Symptom Chaser vs. Problem Solver

Are you going to be a symptom chaser or problem solver?

If you keep treating your symptoms, it’s like making charges to your credit card without ever paying the bill. Then one day you find out that you have a huge problem that will cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

So now, instead of your doctor saying let’s wait and see, you’ll get a diagnosis and it may be something that you really don’t want.

Will you be proactive and work to find the cause and prevent future illness, or will you go the way of the masses and wait for the big diagnosis?

I invite you to watch this special webinar presentation to find out the real reasons behind what’s going on with your health … and how to finally get relief from these symptoms once and for all!
