Two Functional Medicine Quotes To Consider

In this episode of heartbeat, Dr. Brooke Stuart dives into a discussion on two functional medicine quotes to consider. When it comes to working with the mind and body, we want to send signals of safety to both- releasing what doesn’t work and developing what does. By prioritizing safety in our choices, we create an environment where our systems can effectively process, repair, and adapt, allowing us to release the old and embrace growth.

  • Issues In The Tissues: Many fields throughout time and space, including emerging theory and science like German New Medicine, note how the body keeps the score. One of my favorite books on the topic is the classic by Louise Hay: You Can Heal Your Life.
  • The Solution: The solution for pollution is dilution! This means our bodies are always working for us- as they secure the internal organs by pushing environmental pollutants and toxic matter into fat cells.
  • Chinese Medicine: Chinese medicine depicts beautifully how the mind and body work together, noting how each organ system links with certain mental- emotional patterns. For example, the lungs are associated with grief and sadness while the liver is associated with anger, the heart with shock while also being involved in every emotion and the stomach-spleen pair with overthinking, worry and anxiety.
  • Self-Study: As we engage in self study through medicine, it becomes important to choose the perspective that aligns with our truth, deepens our understanding and brings about utility and choice.
  • Safety: When we send our systems signals of safety through our choices, our systems can exhale in our arms, process experiences through, clear out, repair, repurpose and make new. Let go and grow!
