Chronic Illness

Have you hit a roadblock with your health? Have you searched everywhere for answers, with no results? Do you feel sick, tired, and stuck? If so, you're not alone. Countless people are in the same position, struggling and suffering with what I call mystery illness. I'm sure you've heard the term before, most likely in a news story about six kids in a small town who were hospitalized with unexplained symptoms. You could certainly call that "mystery illness." If we stop the definition there, though, we ignore the untold numbers of people who are visiting doctor after doctor, sometimes getting labels like chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Lyme disease—and yet don't feel better. People whose lives are on hold while they confront autoimmune disease and other forms of chronic illness. People who would give anything to reclaim their lives.

It's time for a massive wakeup call about just how prevalent mystery illness is. Migraines, depression, type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia, lupus, multiple sclerosis, ADHD, autism, vertigo, Candida, colitis, Crohn's disease: while they may have names, they're still mysteries to the people who suffer from them and the health-care professionals who long to get their patients better. How often have you seen someone make a full recovery from one of these conditions?

Maybe you or someone you know has found temporary symptom relief. What about complete alleviation of an underlying chronic condition, though? My guess is that your answer is seldom, if ever. That's because medical science has yet to discover the secrets behind why these and other mystery illnesses are making people sick, or what these patients can do to recover. The labels aren't answers, and symptom management isn't true healing.

No Time to Waste

Patients with mystery illnesses deal with ineffective treatment or misdiagnosis and continue to live in pain. Or they suffer from a collection of symptoms that doctors can't name, and then bear the burden of thinking they've somehow imagined their afflictions. I've spoken with women who, twenty years before we met, began to experience neurological symptoms, extreme fatigue, and vertigo. They never could have imagined that two decades later, they'd still be searching for answers about how to get better. And they couldn’t have fathomed that they'd be watching their daughters go down the exact same path of illness without answers. If you're unwell, I doubt you feel that you have twenty years to waste.

Medicine has made leaps and bounds when it comes to life-saving technologies and procedures. Where would we be without emergency surgery, preventative care, and the miracles of rehab therapy? Doctors are heroes. They make the world go 'round. They just haven't yet been handed the tools to correctly diagnose and truly treat the mystery illnesses that plague so many people.

A Roadmap for Healing

There are answers to the mystery of what's making you sick—real, physical explanations for your maladies. Your illness isn't a manifestation of your thoughts; you didn't attract it. It's not in your head. Your body wants to heal, and it can heal. If you've ever heard the theory of autoimmune disease, that the body sometimes becomes confused and attacks itself, let that go. The body never attacks itself. Your body hasn't betrayed you.

Even if you feel weary and weak, your body is strong—because it has kept you alive this long. It is working hard for you, just waiting for the day when you discover the secrets of how to heal. You deserve to get back behind the wheel of your life, to move past the roadblock of illness.

That's why I packed as many health answers as I could into my new book, Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. I wrote it as a roadmap for healing, because it's time for you to reclaim your life. These are solid plans you can follow to recover, not theories that will only lead to dead ends. I've watched tens of thousands of clients turn their lives around with this information, and it's time for it reach the public. It's time for the information to reach you.

Plan for Wellness

To activate your body's healing potential, try this exercise: make plans for when you're well again. When you're ill, it's easy to despair. Pleasures of life that you once enjoyed are out of reach, and it's understandable if you project your fate into the future, fearing that you've lost those joys forever. Keep a light heart, though. When you find yourself dwelling in that place of worry, gently guide yourself to reorient your thoughts.

Picture the sights you want to see, the hobbies you want to explore, the passions you can't wait to rediscover. Read books about your interests, visit favorite websites, talk to friends and family about the fun you'll have. Make lists of all your plans. Accept the present as best you can, then meditate on your future freedom.

You aren't sick because you've had the "wrong" mindset. Getting better isn't just a matter of positive thinking. If you practice this powerful exercise regularly, though, you'll prime your body to respond to the steps you take toward getting better, and to sustain you on your healing journey.
