It's easy. Just carry a pen and journal or
just a few scraps of paper and a pencil.
Regarding food and drink, write in
-- What you ate, including all the ingredients.
-- Time of day you ate it.
-- Quantity you ate.
-- Make note of unusual sensations, feelings,
-- Note time of day it occurred.
-- Venture a guess at what caused the symptom.
-- Note what makes the symptom better or worse.
-- Observe the quality of your sleep and how much
-- Make note of your energy level and how it
If you find you don't have time for
journaling, probably there is too much stress in your life. Reducing or managing
stress is part of your cure.
That's even easier! Summarize
your notes and bring them to your next office visit. We're going to ask you
what's better, what's the same, and what's worse compared to your last
visit. Remember, the goal is continued improvement on all levels until you
are completely well. We expect improvement after every visit.
Remember also that symptoms are your
friends. You need them to show the way to your core health issues. After the
core imbalances are cured, you no longer need the symptoms and they disappear
