Our body is like an onion. We have a central “healthy core” and then build layer upon layer of disease on top of the healthy core. Natural medicine strives to strip these layers off in a certain procession to get back to the healthy core. Using natural medicine, the body heals from the inside-out, from head to toe, and in reverse order (newest to oldest harbored diseases).

We have many dis-ease processes going on in our body at times. Sometimes, if you get to the core cause, you can make huge strides in healing by knowing which of the core causes to address first, second, third and so forth. Often I will just test out the first layer of disease because if you try to treat these deeper layers, the body just rejects the treatment. This is why many medications don’t work–because they are not treating the right layer of dis-ease.

Other times, I find it helpful to test out every component of the symptom so we know what we are looking for down the road in that healing process. Sometimes I decide this would be helpful, and other times my clients ask me to do it.

For all of you nit-picky, scientific, skeptics, it is often helpful and educational for the client to make a list of all the dis-ease processes they may currently be experiencing and including those things they have gone through in the past. This way you can go down the list, one symptom at a time and track your progress.

When I started my own path of healing I made such a list and included even those things I thought I would have to live with the rest of my life. I filled a page, single-spaced, typed from top to bottom with all of my maladies some of which were very alarming. Mostly I did this because I was very skeptical about the natural healing methods and wanted to see if, in fact, I made progress on a week by week time period. Each day I would rate each item from 0-5. Zero meant I did not experience the symptom and 5 was a really bad day in regards to that symptom.

Here is a list of all the core causes I go through to find out where to start treating the body:
