Intro to Systems

Your body is comprised of organ systems. Each magnificent organ system communicates via symptoms when under functioning or diseased. Each symptom is a “red flag” pointing to an underlying cause of disease. Unlike a Verizon 4G coverage map, the less “red flags”-  the better. When addressing lack of health it is of utmost importance to look at the whole, assess which organ systems are “red” and in need of prioritized treatment in order to restore health. Only then will your symptoms resolve and a true cure be achieved. Your body knows how to heal, you just need to get out of its way and help it along.
