From this upside down concept of: drugs first, food last, we develop the following vicious cycle: wait for symptoms and disease—then take a drug—food doesn't really matter—take an additional drug when you lose more of your own health—repeat when more symptoms come.
We need to get back to common sense! We clearly need a better solution to this problematic way of viewing our own health. Our current model of "healthcare" which is really just "disease-care," is the "wait until you have a disease," model.
Are all pills the same? Are all pills medicines? Let's be aware of the difference. Are common vitamin pills food? No, not at all. Commercial "vitamins," as you know them, are isolated pieces of things that were originally found in foods, but were separated, usually synthesized, and put into a pill. Commercial multi-vitamins are not food. The list of ingredients on the label resembles a bunch of chemical names. Can you eat a regular vitamin? No way! Why? because it is not made from food.
Whole food concentrates, however, are not isolated pieces of things; they are the whole food, dried and concentrated for convenient consumption. Did you know that the reason for taking a whole food as a concentrated pill is for convenience? Otherwise, you would need to store, prepare and eat it every day! All pills are not equal. Know the difference. Whole food supplements are not commercial multi-vitamins: they are food, and food supplements are not drugs.
Consider this: A man has diabetes type II, caused by his diet. He gets drugs prescribed to treat the symptoms, which costs him a large portion of his paycheck. Since he has little money left to spend after buying the drugs, he buys the cheapest, processed and devitalized "food" he can find, which then perpetuates his type II diabetes (T2D), but he needs to reverse insulin resistance.
Imagine a person who has a symptom that is already getting better, but the doctor decides to increase the drug dosage because that's the way the drug is supposed to be prescribed. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This doesn't make any sense, but is commonly done with antidepressants. Which is more important: the patient's wellbeing, or the drug the patient is taking? Ask your doctor!
"Let drugs be thy medicine?" That’s not acceptable for me, and I hope you will not accept this type of backwards medical system either.
Do you want that? I don't want that! Imagine a new natural medicine system where our focus is real wholesome food, food concentrates, and things that promote wellness and true prevention, instead of just drugs that hide and push away disease symptoms. If only that were possible…
Well I’m here to tell you that it is possible! The answer is not to be found in the common disease-care / disease management system that we have today, but in the new "functional medicine" system. Most people have no idea that this kind of care is even available. This holistic system is available today from your chiropractor who is an expert in Nutrition Response Testing (yours truly).
At my office in Beverly Hills, our method is to check for how to bring you to optimum health and well being; not for naming the depths of disease, or just accepting a lack of disease as being good enough. Food is not a drug, so you need to start with a different system of health promotion in order to ultimately let food be your natural medicine.
Our holistic method is comfortable and non-invasive. Its foundation is being able to use the most sensitive thing we know-of on this planet: the sensitivity and responses of your nervous system. Your nervous system is the most important central controlling system of your body—more important than your hormones. That's why the "neuroendocrine system" is named as it is: "neuro" is first, endocrine is second.
At my Beverly Hills office, we clearly reveal, and correct the hidden deviations from optimal health, with certainty, before they develop into something that could require a drug. Do you really want food to be your natural medicine? Call us today!
