Step Into the Complicated World of Genetic Testing and Online
Symptoms often creep up on us and then persist until we just think that's how we are—we even stop recognizing symptoms as symptoms, may lose track of how we felt and functioned before, and can't imagine getting back there. We dismiss, diminish, and manage issues that truly affect and alter our lives and activities.
We may share common complaints but each have our own formula of genetic predispositions, histories, exposures, and lifestyles that contribute to how we feel and who we are.
Recommendations for health and wellness can be one size fits all and if you fall in the middle of a bell curve, may work for you. But many of us are nearer one side or the other of the curve, so decisions and steps need to be chosen appropriately, specifically for you and how you are feeling and functioning now.
There are many avenues to explore and clues in our histories (and family histories) that are often the missing pieces to the puzzle. Identifying the best complimentary treatments and approaches can make a difference with even stubborn symptoms.
1. Identify and Prioritize:
-> Articulate a clear and honest assessment of how you feel and function now and how this has changed over time
-> Determine where you would like to see improvement
2. Set Goals and Strategize:
-> Identify triggers and contributing factors
Develop strategies to minimize
-> Explore ways to optimize function
What have you tried? What are you doing now?
*Understand this is an ongoing and evolving process with the
weights of factors x time = what best strategies might be most
helpful for you right now.
3. Keep Going:
-> Follow as simple and manageable a plan as desired. Go day by day. No judgment. Keep moving. Realize the path can be bumpy and that progress may be quick or slow. Keep going. Check in for support when needed. Keep going
