Why Treating your Symptoms is a Recipe for Disaster


'JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE TREATING your symptoms doesn’t mean you’re healthy. If you think your doctor is controlling your health problems because he or she has prescribed medication for them — well, you couldn’t be more wrong!

That’s because doctors are very well-trained to treat symptoms and diseases, but NOT to address the underlying imbalances that perpetuate illness.

The problem?

It’s like taking the batteries out of a smoke detector instead of trying to find the fire. On the other hand, I am always interested in ALL of someone’s symptoms, because they are the clues to deeper imbalances.  Once you find those deeper imbalances and correct them, the symptoms go away.

This approach is called systems medicine, because it looks at all parts of the body, not just one organ. Unfortunately, much of conventional medicine doesn’t work that way.'
