Once you’ve received a name for your health problem (a diagnosis), remember it’s not the end but only the beginning.
The important question you must now ask yourself is what caused it? You may have heard that when nutrient levels go down, the toxicity levels go up and healing is difficult.
However, in many outdated practitioner guidelines in the United States there is no mention of finding the cause and solution by assaying the nutrients and toxins, evaluating imbalances in the nervous system and meridian pathways. By doing so you jump back on your healing path!
What do people have in common when meds or surgery don’t work?
There are patients I’ve seen in the clinic that have been told after extensive examination: “We can’t find what’s wrong,” or “It is all in your head,” or “Sorry, you’ll have to learn to live with it.”
The examining doctor, unable to find the root cause of the problem, has little else to tell you. Fortunately, many physicians are now referring their patients for a functional chemistry evaluation and meridian analysis as a last resort.
Energy Flows Where Attention Goes
The human body’s energy flow courses over twelve meridians or channels that are normally well balanced. If a disruption of energy flow exists, it can alter the entire system, producing pain or symptoms in your body.
If we compare a 175 lb man on one end of a seesaw and a 47 lb child on the other end, it becomes obvious the seesaw is “broken” due to the fact the heavier person would be sitting on the ground and lighter would be dangling in the air.
Even though the seesaw is producing a “symptom” of being broken-detailed examination would not reveal anything wrong with the seesaw. The obvious answer is in the “balance.” Correction of the balance corrects the problem.
The integration or blend of both Eastern and Western medicine is the driving force behind solutions to overcoming many challenging health issues in the world today.
“I’m here because I’ve tried everything” is a common phrase I frequently hear from patients. Uncovering the root cause is the focus rather than looking at a long-term routine of meds with side effects that would keep patients hooked for years to come.
It Started In The Early 90’s
Back in the early 90’s, during my initial years of practice, patients would come in for a specific problem looking for a quick fix.
It would be an upcoming event, a big competition, an overdue pregnancy, a 12 year old covered in warts because of a weak immune system while kids would make fun of him at school, cancer pain, nausea from chemo, a puppy that was hit by a car and he was going to be put down (patient stopped by the office after seeing the vet), multiple sclerosis, pro hockey- basketball, baseball, football injuries,-golfers, swimmers, new born, law student prepping for bar with migraines, pilot with neck pain, A-list actor with an eye that was beginning to close due to injury (who jokingly told me the only part he could get would be a pirate with a patch over his eye), Olympic volleyball player with pain in ALL joints (had previously been x-rayed over 12 times in a month), 40 year old with early spinal degeneration and horrific pain…the list goes on.
Patients were generally referred to me by doctors as a “last resort” and told there was nothing more that could be done from a Western medicine perspective.
The Short-Term Treatment Plan
The quick fix. As soon as patients felt better, they w
