The Chicken or the Egg?

Posted November 26, 2010 @ 6:05pm | by Kori Mortenson

You may think pain begins as soon as function is impaired.  But there's usually a lag.  Because our bodies are so adaptable, we often manage in spite of a problem.  But our capacity to adapt is diminished and then all it takes is a sneeze or the stress of a deadline and symptoms appear.

You might say, "But I didn't do anything!"

Actually, there were probably subtle signs that something was amiss.  We all have a different threshold of "body awareness."  Some are aware of an impending head cold with the earliest hint of a sore throat.  For others, it takes full blown sinus congestion before they admit, "Hey, I have a cold!"

Become more aware of your body.  Take note of even small changes in your energy level, sleep habits and elimination.  Take action while your body is still whispering, rather than waiting until it's shouting for help!

By the time the first obvious symptom appears, the problem has been worsening.  Finally, the answer to the age-old question of what comes first, the chicken and egg - solved!
