Research shows that approach is not very effective. [1]

Nor do we promise cures.

Instead we offer highly researched, common sense approaches to support your body’s ability to heal.

You see, science shows us that chronic illness is not a result of some infective agent alone. Rather, in chronic illness, the body often continues to react after the initial cause, or infection is gone.

The reason why illness becomes chronic is simple.

Illness becomes chronic because your body is designed to respond in certain ways. Those responses can, in a sense lock on, and stay on, even after the cause of that response is gone. The body often needs help to turn these responses back off.

Dr Jeffrey Bland addresses this idea in his book, The Disease Delusion. In this book, he explains that chronic disease has 4 different characteristics:

First, chronic illnesses do not heal by themselves; the term of art is that they are not “self-limiting”. The common cold is self-limiting; it runs its course and then its’ gone. Not so with chronic illnesses.

Second, chronic illnesses grow worse over time. Since we can only palliate but not obliterate these illnesses-at least so far- there is no return to health, just an ongoing management of recurring episodes.

Third, chronic illness doesn’t have a single cause one can point to; rather, several factors or agents give rise to it.

Fourth, chronic illnesses tend to have complex symptom profiles; that is the sick person has numerous different complaints and there are varying indications of illness.[2]

One of the keys to effectively help resolve chronic illness is to find where and why the body is not responding properly and then what it needs to help turn these responses off.

You see, healthy bodies don’t let disease grow. The sooner we recognize and address this, the sooner we can begin to change our lifestyle and start to heal.

Are we pursuing the wrong approach to heal?

Louis Pasteur, the father of the germ theory and founder of the vaccine, realized this on his death bed that in all of his life’s work, he was focused on the wrong thing. On his death bed, in 1895, he said, “Bernard was right. The microbe is nothing, the soil is everything.”[3]

What Louis Pasteur meant by this statement is that we need to look at the body and its systems of organs as a whole for the keys to health. Healthy bodies don’t let disease grow.

This is what we do. We play detective to find out what is going wrong, and we support your body’s needs to help normalize those wrong responses.

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease. William Osler.” [4]

We are very effective at this. Our approach has allowed us to help many regain vitality and health even when the previous attempts of help from all avenues of healthcare have failed.

If this makes sense to you, then we may be just what you are looking for. Give us a call. We are here to help.
