Someone brilliant in my circle started using the term ‘one rat study’ to sum up the experience of someone who is on a journey to finding their own health. Because you have to find your own way to health. The modern medical machine can’t help you. Modern, western medicine is very concerned with sickness, not wellness. Disease, not health. Drugs, not therapies. All the studies and research in the world can only tell you what worked, on average, for some number of people. Nothing can tell you exactly what will work for you except to try the thing covered in the study and see if it does, in fact, work that way for you. If it doesn’t, all the research and correlation and data isn’t ever GOING to make it work for you, and you need to move on and try something else, no matter the prevailing opinion of the media, your doctor, or your mother.
Be your own rat. Try things. Experiment. Learn to hear what your body and your intuition tell you. Find your own way to health.
