The reality is that discomfort originate as a result of the cumulative effects produced by your choices, Initially, these effects merely produce a constant sense of awareness that something is not right. This awareness is necessarily indistinct at this stage, since it only represents an attempt by your body to communicate a concern. It also suggests that its innate capacity to respond to some excessive demand is being challenged , and its ability to compensate is being taxed. This represents the true nature of a Vicious Cycle Disorder.
Interacting with someone experiencing symptoms at this stage is most demanding, most rewarding , most difficult, and most productive. Since everything is what it isn’t, and the solution is always in the problem, adopting a different way of looking at things will usually provide a change in what is seen. Subsequent changes also occur in how one responds, what is recommended, and what is produced.
It is at this point that a lifestyle assessment is most essential and productive. It is also the point at which the “everything works” caveat is most compelling. In fact, conventional testing to rule out diagnosable disease actually provides the benefit of pointing out the direction of the most probable cause of concerns by ruling out what it is not. The challenge at this junction is to move beyond the negative test results into another way of looking at things, rather than waiting to see something familiar in the way things are routinely observed.
