As mentioned, symptoms are the result of underlying causes that may stem from a variety of sources. Factors that contribute to any illness may include lifestyle, dietary and environmental factors, stress, genetic influences, as well as organ systems that are not functioning optimally. In order to achieve resolution of any health concern, all of these areas must be addressed.
