A few weeks ago, I wrote an article for a client about the health benefits of tea. It dawned on me that I don’t drink enough tea, so I started drinking at least one cup a day. Almost immediately I started having heartburn and horrible stomach aches. I didn’t make the connection immediately, but once I stopped drinking the tea, I felt much better. So even though people say it’s healthy to drink tea, it’s not true for me.

The Abnormal is My Normal

Every time I have been to a doctor throughout my life, whatever the doctor tells me is “normal,” is the opposite of what I experience. So if there is a typical response to a test or medication, my body always seems to do the reverse. I got very tired of trying to explain this to new doctors. They would always look at me like I was crazy and didn’t know what I was talking about. Then of course when the impossible happened, they would shake their heads in confusion. Is it any wonder I no longer utilize traditional medicine? What everyone thinks is true in the healthcare world, is not true for me.

Critical Thinking

One of the first classes I took in college and loved was Critical Thinking. It stressed the importance of no matter how many degrees they have on the wall, don’t believe anything anyone says. Find out for yourself. Do your own research and use logical thinking to determine what you believe. Since I have always been a person who questions authority, it hit home with me.

My ex-husband, when embroiled in an argument with someone, would say “it’s a fact!” But what he really meant was it was something he felt to be true. Hardly any of his “facts” were based on anything more than opinion.

Find Your Own Truth

We all have stories where the rest of the world says one thing and we find it’s entirely different for us. At one point the news told us milk was great for us, then it was poison, now it’s back to good for us again. So which is it? How do we know who to believe?

I think we sometimes forget that we have our own ideas and can literally create our own truth. What we think and believe creates our own reality so what everyone else is saying is the truth, may not be for us. It’s important to use your own research, your personal experience, and divine your truth. Use your instincts and listen to your gut, it can be trusted. You can only trust yourself to know what is best for you. Stop letting everyone else tell you what your truth is.

In the end, nothing matters more than what is important to you. My truth is my truth, your truth is yours, and that is how it is supposed to be.
