detection is spoken about a lot by the medical
profession. They will x-ray, take blood tests and
prescribe a whole list of testing to be done. Yet
daily people find out they have a disease that is life
The question is how did it get to that point? Someone
can talk about the marvels of medicine when they point
out that they had to have bypass surgery due to the
blockage that the medical tests found. It saved their
life. Yet, one has to wonder why it got to that point
of blockage? Why did it get to where surgical
intervention was necessary? Why wasnít it found out
when it was non-life threatening or just beginning?
understand one has to realize what medical doctors
treat and what their tests show. Medical doctors put
their attention on disease, not health. They view the
situation that if the person does not have a disease,
they are healthy. Yet, a person with a very small
blockage in their arteries, is definitely not healthy
and on his way to a real problem Ė a serious medical
condition, heart failure.
If you view total health as 100% and death as 0, the
medical doctorís attention is on the 20% to death
range. This is where their studies, clinical trials,
tests and treatments are focused on. Medical doctors
practice what is called structural medicine. They find
ways to prevent death. Thus, bypass surgery, drugs to
lower blood pressure, surgery to correct a gallbladder
stone, cutting out a tumor, etc. etc. etc. are used.
where is the prevention? Where are the tests that can
find out when a person is down to 80% health, let
alone 60% or 40%? Have you ever been confused because the doctor says
that according to your tests, there is nothing wrong with you, yet you feel terrible?
The tests are not showing what is happening.
paraphrase Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. if you find that
people are falling off the cliff you donít park an
ambulance at the foot of the cliff you build a fence
at the top of the cliff. Parking the ambulance at the
foot of the cliff is structural medicine.
I donít hear "this is how to stay healthy"
from medical doctors Ė except maybe Joel Fuhrman,
M.D. & the Chiropractic Profession. I hear from
medical doctors that this is linked to cancer, or that
is linked to heart disease. There is nothing
definitive about just building health or how to do it.
Building health is what is necessary. Your diet is
important. Exercise is important and in some cases
working on the health of a specific area of the body
that is at a 60% is important. This is Functional
Medicine which is the "Medical Practice or
treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the
body and its organs." The focus of functional
medicine is to promote health beyond just the absence
"We need to shift our focus from treating disease to generating health..." Hippocrates ("The Father of Medicine")
