The most dangerous thoughts about your health can affect how your function and feel.

The most dangerous thoughts about your health can affect how your function and feel.

1. Maybe It Will Go Away. Yes, your health definitely will go away if you ignore it and don’t take responsibility for it. Pain and symptoms are warning signals that your body is dealing with something which requires extra attention. Ratherthan ignoring symptoms or covering them up with drugs, we need to examine what they’re telling us and make appropriate changes.

2. It Just Comes and Goes. Your body is a wonderfully creative and adaptive mechanism. Overstress it or damage it and it will do all it can to patch the damage and learn to function with less than optimum conditions. Yet, the underlying problem is almost always still present during the time between episodes.

3. It’ s Not That Bad. Compared to what? Should you wait to take care of your health until it gets “that bad”? Yes, you may be able to live with pain or less than optimum health in your body, but do you really want to?

4. It Only Hurts When I… A cavity may only hurt when you eat or drink something cold. Does that mean that you should avoid all cold things and not get the tooth repaired? This attitude will eventually restrict your life more and more as the number of activities on the “When I” list gets longer and longer.

 5. I Know Where My Problem Is, It’ s… Where we experience discomfort in our bodies may be different from where the actual problem is. Alternately, many people will blame their problem on something outside of themselves—their job, their mattress, some activity they do. These activities may aggravate an underlying problem, but even if you stop doing the things that bother you, the core problem remains.
