Contrary to what the medical profession would like us to believe, modern medicine is not truly interested nor adequately directed at preventing illness before it happens. Over the past hundred and fifty or more years, the western medical profession, allopathic medicine, has almost entirely been concerned about two aspects of prevention public health (a very important aspect of prevention) and immunization (another very important aspect of prevention) but not about preventing some of the most important medical problems and largest killers of our time diabetes, heart disease, stroke, injuries, hormonal problems and a host of other health issues such as genetic and metabolic disorders. These medical conditions are primarily dealt with through treating their signs and symptoms and not through preventing them from occurring nor their long-term negative, even deadly side effects once they have occurred.
Here in the US today, both the average physician and the average person generally think of prevention as what they do and what their patients do. Hence, prevention is either about immunization, public health measures or things their patients, the average person does, to protect themselves. While both immunization and public health are very important aspects of medicine the medical profession has not yet, that is until now and our recent encounter with Covid-19 really emphasized prevention relating to viral diseases and we are now seeing the cost of this lapse of intention. Since most physicians are primarily dealing with treating the signs and symptoms and complications of existing illness they have little or no time to educate, teach, follow or make sure their patients are doing their end of prevention and hence actually preventing getting ill in the first place. When their ill patient arrives in their office this merely as seen as another day at the office. It appears not to stimulate them to anything other than write a prescription for a new medication and move on to their next patient.
If you, as an individual, want to keep yourself healthy, you cannot count on the medical profession to do much of anything to help you other than offer you immunization, take your blood pressure or suggest you have yearly exams, or testing for heart disease, mammography, pap smears, or preventive blood testing, if they even remember or have the time to do these things.
This generally means that if you want to live longer, become and stay healthier, you must find the answers for yourself since you cannot rely on either the medical profession and in most cases, you cannot even rely on your own personal doctor. The medical profession is not working to prevent medical problems from occurring, nor even toward solving your existing medical problems, but rather toward treating your medical problems with medications, so you feel comfortable by keeping the signs and symptoms of your illness under control, while you are slowly and steadily dying from the long-term complications and problems associate with your illness or illnesses. I like to think of our modern medical profession as a system of Interventive medicine. That is, you must first become broken or sick, before they can fix you and once you are sick they generally believe, with a few exceptions that there is nothing they can do but give you medication to keep you from getting worse which in fact rarely happens. The current medical system has little interest in preventing the creation of your medical problem initially and once you are sick it offers you the full resources of the medical profession can be brought to bear to: 1) make a diagnoses, 2) control your comfort, 3) allow you to feel better, 4) keep you alive. Unfortunately however once you are ill, they do not however 1) know how fix you and/or cure your illness, 2) keep you from getting sicker, protect you from most of the worse complications such as kidney failure, blindness, amputation or death, although they can sometime, thank god or not, 1) put your death off, 2) leave you to suffer longer and more painfully getting you addicted to pain mediation and 3) leave you to die and miserable and painful death.
This is much like the much vaunted concept of closing and locking the barn door, after the horses have left. What actually should happen is that you should become sick in the first place, all illness should be prevented BEFORE you get sick and we should not have to treat illness but prevent it. It is most important to stop and even reverse all illness processed before you get sick. In fact, our medical system should be redesigned from an Interventive System where in you must first get sick, to a Preventive System, where in you never get sick but are always healthy system. If the medical system cannot do this, then you and I can work together to do this for you. You can with a bit of training redesign your life so that you keep yourself from getting sick rather than waiting to get sick and then trying to get well.
If you desire to live a preventive lifestyle come see me and we can start immediately to begin a process of reorganizing your life and internal resource so you can improve your current health, heal already existing illness, you can with our help heal yourself, create a state of optimal well-being, manifest your ability to create longevity and increase the overall quality of your life while doing so teaching you how to prevent others in your life, your immediate family from becoming ill if they so choose.
This is not only possible, but is actually always a part of your daily life. There are three keys that make this possible: 1) Your body already knows how to heal itself and does it every single day of your life from conception to death. 2) You already know all of the steps it will take do make this happen, it is called problem solving and you also do this every day of your life and you have this skill built into the fiber of your being so all you have to do is accept this and let it work. Lastly, you will need to make a number of lifestyle changes and we will be right with you to explain them and encourage you to learn what you need to learn and do what you need to do.
Everything you need is already within you and what you need to know we can teach you. All you need from here is believe in yourself and the intelligence of the world around you. We will help you understand everything else and all this is required is an open mind.
As you begin your healing you will see and learn to believe that you can alter how you see yourself both from your eyes and to others around you in a more positive way than ever you could ever have imagined. This then will change how and what you think about yourself and your life, your life experiences and what you believe. As you become more open, change and heal, your health attitude will also change and you will soon see yourself, and respond, as being more positive and healthier. As you do, you will see, learn, grow and evolve as a healthy and happy person.
If you wish to be illness free, healthy, wise, happy and evolve yourself to who you would really like to be come see me and let’s talk.
