Everyone is Different - No One Program Fits All

Good Sunday,

Each week I do my best to share information that has real life value.

I follow several world-class holistic doctors each week to gain new knowledge that I can share with you. Most talk about the importance of daily detoxification, a whole-foods, farm to table, vegetarian or vegan diet, and other wellness topics. Most are selling something and that is fine.

Everyone is so different and unique that it is hard to put a one size fits all. One person may have immune challenges (that may even have hereditary origins) while the next person may have deep-seated and hard to see heavy metal challenges. And yet someone else may have noted food sensitivities that are caused by immune or heavy metals.

Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you there are (unseen) toxins in the body that are interfering with

normal function. Over time, the body cannot handle it and symptoms arise.

The important thing is to correctly address what are causing the symptoms. Not quiet or suppress the symptoms.

For example, let’s say being overweight while eating a normal 1,000 -1,200 calories a day. Having 10, 20 or more excess pounds can be a result of metabolic dysfunction or dys-regulation inside the body. There may be functional imbalances in the thyroid gland, spleen (digestion and detoxification), pancreas (digestion and blood sugar regulation), gallbladder (fat digestion), lymphatic system (detoxification),

and a few other areas. All of this results in the body not being able to shed the excess weight. You can take prescription meds or herbal supplements to artificially lose weight, or, you can intelligently address the true underlying issue (the real health challenges) and as a result shed the weight.

Most of us have been brought up if you have this issue, take that. This issue, take that. That is so far from how the body works and heals.

Staying healthy is literally a full time job. It’s eating the right foods and when. Getting the best night’s sleep – between 10:00 pm – 6:00 am. Exercising daily – the right kind for you. You may not want to run 3 miles a day with flat or overly pronated feet. Having the best mental and emotional state – always a work in progress I personally meditate the first thing to balance my mental and emotional being.

Having Dr. Google as your go to can be a good thing. Certainly educational. Educating your self about your body and health is a good thing.

Guessing what is causing any symptoms you may have may not be. Your health is your most precious asset. Guessing not an option.

Any questions please feel free to email me. Please share this email with someone you care about.

Being pro-active about your health is always a good thing.

Have a great week,

Dr. Karp
