If you have some kind of lingering illness or condition, be it dry skin, acne, shortness of breath, diabetes, hypertension, joint pain, allergies, depression, clogged sinuses, or whatever else, it is extremely likely that the root problem is that your body is not balanced. If the medicine you are taking or the procedures your doctor is recommending don't address the issue of balance, you will not be cured. PERIOD. Even if your symptoms abate, you are not fixing the underlying problem. This is why people get stuck on meds for years at a time, because at best, most medications seek only to relieve some of the symptoms of an illness. They do nothing to correct the imbalances of the body.
