Before we accept a diagnosis of a disorder or disease isn’t reasonable to take a look at our lifestyle?
Now a days it’s hard to find someone who isn’t affected by some kind of disorder. They are either dealing with it themselves or they know someone who is.
Disease labels are necessary for coding and billing so the provider can receive payment and research can be funded for cures (meds). Ever notice that new diseases are popping up all the time?
If a disease is not recognized by the medical community it cannot be billed to insurance for payment. Not every person labeled with the same disease presents with the same symptoms.
Could it be possible that our habits have created some signals from our body letting us know that we need to adapt differently? Maybe responding to those signals with different habits could change the signals?

Diagnosis is a tool used to treat and bill. It is a measure of signals from a body at a particular point in time and that’s it. What we do about those signals is up to us we don’t even have to label them.
