One of my favorite questions we get (and have been getting for years) basically come down to this: “When am I going to get better?”
I love this question. Mostly because when I was sick 7 years ago I spent endless hours trolling Google trying to find the answer myself. So I’m going to share some of the writing I’ve done about this before… because I could reply back with any number of cliché inspirational sayings we have, like:
- “It took a long time to get sick and it takes a long time to get better”
- “This healing process is a marathon, not a sprint – you’re doing great!”
- “Everyone has a custom diet that works for them… you just have to keep testing until you find yours”
Each of these reassuring clichés is completely true, but what I love about it is: it means you’ve already taken an action and started changing your diet/supplements/etc. You already accomplished the most difficult part of taking control of her health by overcoming thoughts in your head like “What if it doesn’t work for me?” or “I don’t have time to cook all this food.”
Starting the diet is not only the first step, but it’s the most important one. And it usually means you’re finally on the way to unlocking your body’s natural ability to heal.
