Sometimes with illness it's hard to believe that everything is rigged in our favor, but I had a couple of big "aha moments" this week that reminded me that it truly is. First, I heard someone say that Dr. Neil Spector views inflammation not as an indicator as disease, but as a sign of healing. What a beautiful way to look at it. Second, I read that the Medical Medium, Anthony William, believes that in autoimmune disease is not the body attacking itself, but the body attacking pathogens. The body is always working in your favor, you just may not know why. These changes in perspective take something that may seem negative and allows us to realize everything is working in our favor. When become aware of the reason—that's where healing happens.
