Dr. Lawrence currently practices Wellness, Prevention and Functional-Integrative Medicine – Hormone Replacement Therapy in Pasadena, California. Dr. Lawrence has authored and published more than 23 books, including: When Your Body Talks, Listen!, When Your Body Talks, Heal It! and When Your Body Talks, Heal It! Workbook. These three books were designed to help everyone better understand how stress leads to and causes both acute and chronic illnesses and these illnesses, Stress-Related Disorders can lead to pain, suffering and untold misery. They also tell the readers how to recognize and heal Stress-Related Illness. Stress-Related Disorder are responsible for 70-80% of all illnesses seen in medical practice on a daily basis. Dr. Lawrence has written more than 100 articles and developed many patient education programs which discuss natural treatments, and simple methods for prevention of illness and disability. His books are geared to provide information on how to regain total health and wellness and create a better life. Many of his articles, books and educational programs, deal with a topic rarely talked about in medicine, Optimal Healing.
Dr. Lawrence recognized in the early years of his medical practice that there are two kinds of medicine being practiced in the US, Interventive (Allopathic) Medicine, for which you have to get sick before the medical profession can help you (that is, try to “fix” you) Medicine and Integrative – Preventive Medicine, which works to prevent you from getting sick, so you never have to get sick again.
Currently most Western Medical practitioners operate from Interventive (Allopathic) Medicine and their job is treating already existing medical problems by either reducing or eliminating problematic signs and symptoms of illness. They often confuse reducing and/or eliminating symptoms of specific illnesses with eliminating the illnesses itself, which is generally not what is happening. This means that the cause of the illness is rarely looked for or found nor eliminated. Hence, the illness is allowed to continue, progress and to reach its chronic state, cause irreversible damage, disability and often even premature death. This is why so many people end up in nursing homes, as invalids or suffering needlessly over the last years of their life from their illnesses that could have been eliminated 20, 30 even 40 years earlier. This is why MediCare is overwhelmed, medial insurance is so high and health care is only affordable to upper middle class and the rich. It is also why many people fear growing old and getting sick.
Dr. Lawrence has long believed in Integrative – Preventive Medicine which he believes can be used to prevent most people from ever becoming ill in the first place. This can entirely prevent them from suffering pain and disability. Not becoming ill in the first place prevents the occurrence of chronic illnesses and hence will makes it totally unnecessary for us to risk the many complications associated with becoming ill. If we never get ill, we have no likelihood of chronic illness, we remain self-sufficient, functional and we get to live a long, joyful, happy and healthy life. Yes, this is possible, you actually see it all around every day. You just have to see it as being possible for you.
