Stages Of Dis-ease

(Ayurvedic Concept)

 

Conventional thought is responsible for the advancement of dis-ease. Here's a typical example. Most people believe that they are lethargic because they have worked late for a few days. Sounds reasonable, don't it? You have worked late for a few days in a row so of course you are tired, right? However reasonable this may sound, it is certainly not the truth. First of all, when you begin to feel discomfort, you can be sure that the body has been under stress for some time. You are now "feeling it" because the body can no longer "hold down the fort" without your help. So, in an effort to maintain homeostasis or internal balance, your body sends you a signal in the form of, for example, lethargy, discomfort or pain to let you know that you are entering into a stage of dis-ease.


I teach my clients how to think properly. In this case, proper thought would be to view the lethargy as a stage of dis-ease. When you view lethargy as a stage of dis-ease instead of justifying it away, you take action which keeps the stages from progressing and reverses the course of the dis-ease. In order to help you understand the stages of dis-ease, let's think about the concept of a river.

 

Trees in WaterStage 1 of Dis-ease:  Accumulation

Think of accumulation as a river that is accumulating water. It doesn't seem to be causing a real problem, but the river is rising. In our bodies, this rising river can show up in many ways including:

  • Constipation, gas
  • Heat around belly button, yellowish discoloration in
    whites of the eyes, dark yellow urine, craving quick
    energy (like sugar but needs stable protein)
  • Lethargy, feeling "heavy," low appetite

In the accumulation stage, your body will crave what is needed to help restore balance, so listen to your body. If the body wants to sleep, then your job is to give it rest.

 

Stage 2 of Dis-ease:  Aggravation

Medication will only add toxicity to the body, and it will never get to the actual cause of the issue. For these reasons, the person will progress to aggravation, stage two of dis-ease. In stage two, our river is now taking on so much water that it has begun to aggravate the plant life around it. In our bodies, aggravation looks like:

  • Low or mid back pain, stomach gurgling, breathlessness, hyperperistalsis (excessive contraction of the intestines)
  • Acid reflux, nausea, heartburn
  • Cold, cough, congestion

In the aggravation stage, you can help your body by balancing it out with the opposite effect. For example, if you feel congested, avoid dairy and other mucus-forming foods and the congestion will go away. It is important to note that stage two of dis-ease is your LAST CHANCE to address an issue without professional help.

 

Stage 3 of Dis-ease:  Flooding

Tractor WaterBecause conventional thought tends to win in situations concerning health, the average person will once again ignore the "symptoms" or try some over the counter medication to attempt to "control" the issue. Once again, an issue cannot be reversed unless the original cause is identified and addressed, so on to stage three we go. In the flooding stage, the velocity and volume of the water has increased so much that the river can no longer contain it. In our bodies, flooding is the stage at which a local problem becomes systemic, affecting other areas of the body. A person may experience discomforts such as:

  • Dry skin, goose bumps, cold hands and feet, ringing in the ears, tingling and numbness, quivering thighs
  • Heartburn, burning eyes, acidic sweat, hives, rashes, burning sensations
  • Water retention, sinus congestion, lymphatic congestion, heavy breasts, excessive salivation, heavy feeling in the head, cold and clammy skin

In the flooding stage, the body can no longer help you by sending messages. It is too busy with internal damage control so you are on your own. In addition, you will now begin to crave foods and actions that will exacerbate your condition. I consider flooding extremely important, because it signifies an important cross road: you can either continue in the direction you are going or take serious steps to turn it around. The average person may consider professional help in the form of a medical doctor or other health care professional. If drugs are administered, initially some symptoms may be relieved, giving the person a false sense of security. Again, if the cause is not addressed, even though some symptoms may be temporarily relieved or "controlled," the person will inevitably progress to stage four of dis-ease, displacement.

 

Stage 4 of Dis-ease:  Displacement

House Flood in WaterGoing back to our analogy of the river, displacement would mean that the water has so much power that it literally moves whatever is in its path out of the way. Many of my clients are surprised to learn that displacement is a literal term. Our bodies are brilliant. In an effort to keep you alive, our bodies will literally distort themselves in order to maintain some level of flow. Of course we pay the price in the form of:

  • Your weak areas are now under attack
  • Confusion within the cellular intelligence of your weak areas now has the ability to change its normal qualities
  • You are now in danger of developing full-blown dis-ease

Stage 5 of Dis-ease:  Manifestation

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Low Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Auto-immune dis-ease

In the manifestation stage, our river has caused damage at the source and at every point in its path. The result of this damage has caused an actual named dis-ease. At this point, it is difficult to avoid medication or surgery without major lifestyle changes, persistence, proactivity and dedication.

 

FloweringStage 6 of Dis-ease:  Flowering

In the final stage of dis-ease, flowering, the river has caused permanent changes that are nearly impossible to reverse. In our bodies, all of our systems are now in a state of imbalance with many courses of dis-ease. This is the path of the end of life. It is called flowering because just as a flower blooms, it fades away, marking the end of one life and the transition of the spirit leaving the body. Examples include:

  • Severe dehydration, muscle wasting, loss of function, cerebral trauma
  • Deep ulceration, hemorrhage, abscess formation, gangrene, meningitis
  • Profuse edema, hardening of tissues, neoplasm/tumor, diabetic coma

Unfortunately, it is much more difficult to treat dis-ease in the flowering stage. To make matters worse, a person in stage six tends to give up and prepares for death.

 

Now that we know the stages of dis-ease, can we reverse it? The answer is a resounding YES! The sooner we recognize that we are in a stage of dis-ease, the easier it is to locate, address and reverse the causes of the dis-ease. With a little practice, anyone can learn how to recognize a stage of dis-ease and reverse the causes so that the "manifestation" never occurs.
