If nothing changes, nothing changes

Uncategorized Jul 27, 2020

Right now, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed. You’re confused about what is causing your health issues. Your life feels chaotic. You’re uncertain about what you should be doing to fix things.

What if we had something that could turn your Confusion into Clarity. Your Overwhelm into Calm. Your Chaos into Control. Your Uncertainty into Confidence?

You would take it, right?

There are two options:

1. Keep doing the same thing

It just all seems too hard. You don't know where to start. Maybe you've tried in the past to seek help, with little results. Maybe you're scared to invest your money into something that might not 'work.' Maybe changing feels like too much of a gamble. Maybe you don't have enough time or energy to do the hard work of healing. Maybe you're hoping for a 'quick-fix' so you jump from doctor to doctor, or supplement to supplement, trying to get a cheap, quick fix. Maybe you don't value yourself enough to give yourself the space to heal. Maybe you don't believe you can heal. Maybe you think you are destined to stay miserable and inflamed forever. 

There are many stories we tell ourselves when we're faced with an opportunity to heal. Remember: these are just STORIES. All stories are fictitious (even what is thought to be 'true' ones). Why? Because the storyteller (you) is speaking from a subjective point of view. Your lens is tainted by your own experiences, thoughts and beliefs. 

If you continue to stay stuck in your unproductive stories, one of two things will happen:

a) Either you will keep doing the same thing and you will remain the same. You'll continue feeling overwhelmed and anxious. You'll continue to struggle to sleep. You'll continue to drag yourself throughout the day because you're so fatigued. You'll continue being plagued with heartburn or bloating or chronic pain. You'll continue to struggle with PMS or menopausal symptoms. You'll continue to be irritable, and snappy towards your family. And foggy throughout work.

b) Or, you will keep doing the same thing and...get worse! Suddenly you'll find yourself on a restrictive diet because you're reacting to almost every food, even healthy ones. You'll have to drop down to two days a week of work (or none at all!) because you're struggling to get through the day. You'll find your marriage at the edge of breaking up, because you're such a 'monster' to be around. You'll start hating being around your children, because you're so exhausted and at the brink of falling apart; their energy and neediness irritates you. 

Not a pretty picture, is it? If you are anything like how I used to be, it was these fears of not just my body falling apart (even more so!), but also my family and my life falling apart that pushed me towards change.  I knew if I didn't do something, I would end up far worse then my already unhappy and chaotic state.

 

2. Do something different

The second option: you could do something different, and get a different (and better) result! I know this may seem scary. I know you may feel like you've tried many times. But if you stay stuck in your current state of being, nothing will change - at least not for the better.

Chris and I have both been on our own healing journeys. We know what it feels like to feel stressed out and worn out, and all the physical and emotional symptoms that come along with this state of being. We know what to do - and what it takes - to heal the body and the mind. Not just from a practitioner point of view (for which we have spent over $200,000 on our eduction, and have studied and practiced for over 10 years), but also from a very visceral and personal point of view. We were in the trenches too!

We were both led to our professions (our callings!) because of the need to heal ourselves. And, with the help of our many mentors, we have learnt how to not only get to the root cause, but also to heal the breakdown of the body and the mind. It took us many years to get to where we are now. The good news? We can turn your decades into days (so to speak!). Instead of you alone trying many, many years to try to even figure out what is wrong with you, we can accelerate this process with our proven Functional Medicine System. Finally you can share the load of your issues, with someone who has been there and knows how to navigate the maze which is health. 

 

What story are you going to tell yourself?

So, what story are you going to tell yourself? What path are you going to choose? 

If nothing changes, nothing changes.

And just know: the deeper your body falls apart, the longer and harder it will be to turn imbalances around. 

There is never a better time then now! :)

  

"Chris and Filly's Functional Medicine System has helped me make significant changes to my lifestyle and health. I honestly can't believe the shift I feel in my thinking and am so proud of the changes I've made so far since working with Chris & Filly...Through comprehensive testing, Filly helped to identify some serious deficiencies that were affecting my health more than I even realised and has set me on a path towards real healing. Chris is the absolute BEST motivator and coaches you through everything with sensitivity and kindness. Their guidance has helped me get control of my overwhelm, monitor my anxiety, focus on better sleep and nutrition and start to cut out the things that no longer serve me. I am happier and healthier than I have been in 2 years and do not regret even one second of doing their protocol! There's still some work to be done but Chris and Filly have given me the courage and confidence to move ahead - happily!" ~ Kate
