Have you lost your resilience?
Are you fed up of living with a chronic health condition? Have you lost your ability to bounce back? Are you uncertain about how best to support your health?
Resilience is key. Loss of resilience occurs prior to the onset of ill health; it’s the inability to “bounce back”. Oftentimes, this may start with symptoms of low energy or loss of motivation but can ultimately lead to more serious chronic health issues such as digestive complaints, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disease and metabolic or mental health disorders.
Common precursors to loss of resilience include poor diet, nutrient deficiencies, dietary or chemical intolerances, toxic exposure (incl. heavy metals, pesticides), infection, antibiotics and stress. Accumulatively, these environmental factors can take their toll on the body and the mind. Depending on your bio-individual make-up or genetic predisposition, any number of symptoms may arise.
A thorough case history and functional testing can provide insight as to how best to support your overall health. Understanding when and how loss of resilience takes place can help us determine why certain symptoms currently present. Dietary and lifestyle interventions can then be discussed and advised based on your own personal goals.
