Conventional methods of early detection, early diagnosis and early treatment failed for an old friend, who,without early warning, died from a sudden heart attack. There was no early warning sign, or early warning signal before he died. Conventional early detection, early diagnosis, or early treatment did not give him any protection, or prevention of his heart attack. Even though he was a doctor, with all the "preventive medicine" resources available to a medical doctor living in Beverly Hills, the conventional early detection model of prevention failed him. He deserved better. Do you want better?
Prevention: Because Early Detection Is Too Late
Do you still believe so-called early detection and early treatment are enough to prevent a heart attack, or prevent a chronic disease? Do you believe the idea of early treatment with prescription drugs is your only choice for "prevention?" The big empty promise you are led to believe is that they work, but experience shows they are clearly not enough. So-called early detection and early drug treatment fail as preventive medicine. For my old friend it is too late, but not for you.
Most people believe that routine blood tests, x-ray studies, and routine physical exams are the best early detection methods we have. Not true. They do not discover any truly early warning signs needed to prevent cardiovascular disease, heart disease, stroke, a sudden heart attack, cancer, or degenerative brain disease. The true early signs have to be detectable before disease is already established; before it can be diagnosed as a disease. The conventional idea of early detection is to detect something already in a diseased state. That's why so many of us know someone who suddenly died from a heart attack, despite all these deceptively comforting medical tests believed to be preventive "early detection." These tests don't detect anything until it is already diseased. So, by definition, early detection of disease does not prevent disease.
early detection of disease does not prevent disease
The following may be unsettling, but it is a fact we must face: "early diagnosis" in conventional medicine, and so-called "early detection," and "prevention" are not early enough. Current early detection statistics show that we have a problem. We do have a better choice. There is an earlier prevention method than the early detection and early treatment (medical management) of symptoms. This is your wake-up call. Be proactive. Use natural preventive medicine solutions that are better than early pharmaceutical treatment.
"The lack of sufficiently delicate methods to detect injury before symptoms appear is one of the great unsolved problems in medicine."
— Rachel Carson, author, Silent Spring (1962)
Outdated myths of lowering cholesterol levels, blood pressure tests, and high-tech medical tests still do not adequately predict who will have a fatal heart attack. They can save your life in an emergency but they fail as a method to find early warning signs. They fail for true prevention. By limiting yourself to these conventional medical tests, you can’t tell who could have a deadly heart attack as a first symptom.
Likewise, mammography, year after year is not a safe, or adequate way to show who has a pre-developing stage of breast cancer. By the time breast cancer is even detectable in a mammogram, the disease process of cancer has been developing for as much as five to ten years! That’s not an acceptable "early warning," or early detection by my standards, and I hope you will not accept these failed methods for "early diagnosis," or so-called "early detection" of cancer either. We can do better.
The fundamental problem with searching for disease, as a method of "early warning" is that the disease must already be present before the search can show anything. The disease must already be established in order for it to be detected. Do you see how that is a problem? For any physical changes to appear on an insensitive medium such as x-rays (mammography included), the disease process would have already had to develop over the course of many years! UNACCEPTABLE!
Early Detection, Early Diagnosis, and Early Treatment Fail as Prevention.
You can only have true prevention when your starting point is before disease!
What comes before disease? The subtle state of dysfunction before disease is what we need to detect. This is your key to finally change the miserable status quo of early detection. It requires a holistic method of analysis, usually performed by an integrative chiropractor—the right kind of doctor to investigate your body’s true pre-disease state of health. Imagine your integrative chiropractor using a non-invasive earlier prevention method to evaluate your level of optimum health, instead of just ruling-out established disease. Earlier prevention is for optimization and true prevention, far before disease were to develop.
Earlier Prevention: Checking For the Pre-Disease State
The answer for true early detection is not to be found in the study of disease,because in true early detection there would not yet be any development of disease —no tumor masses seen on x-ray or mammography, no "early stage" degenerative changes yet, no diagnosis yet, but some as-yet, undefined deviation from optimal health: a pre-disease status. Shouldn't prevention mean preventing disease, and not just attempting to prevent complications from established disease?
Our method is to investigate where optimum health is stressed. We're not just checking for a lack of disease.
Our method is comfortable, non-invasive, and engages the most sensitive thing we know-of on this planet: your own nervous system and its responses. Our earlier prevention method gives consistent results for true prevention—using signs that show an undefined deviation from optimal wellness; way before established disease first shows-up. That's what you want.
Conventional "early detection" is a false security. It is not early enough! Don't just wait for the symptoms of established disease (still considered "early warning" signs) that eventually would show-up in conventional medical tests. That's not prevention. Let's uncover the subtle, pre-disease state early enough, and take actions of prevention today; before the development of a definable disease, or even early death.
