Wellness

Wellness, for most people, is a goal.  It is fun to be alive when you feel well.

Years ago, in China, the doctor (probably acupuncturist and herbalist) was paid when the patient was well and not paid when the patient was sick.  They made money only if they kept the patient well. What would happen if we started that practice here?  The problem is medicine has turned into “managing your problem,” instead of curing much of anything.  Take a child with asthma.  You can see their life in the future.  Yes, some will not go the medicine route, but many will be on medication for the rest of their lives.  That is “managing their illness.”  They mean managing it with drugs.  For me, I want to give my body a chance to heal the issue, not cover it up.  What about you? I’ve mentioned the book, “The Vitamin C Miracle,” before. Read all about doctors CURING bad illnesses with vitamin C. It is shocking what we do when that is available.

Osteoporosis

This is known, for the most part, as a woman’s disease. I have women in my practice who are scared of osteoporosis. I’ve known people who have done dramatic things to increase their bone mass. I have never known anyone who has increased it all that much by doing those dramatic things, like infusions.

I read this article from Dr. McDougall and thought I should share it with my patients and friends because there seems to be so much fear around it. Maybe this article will give you a good perspective and help the fear factor when it comes to osteoporosis. I hope it helps to hear it from someone else! This is really a great article and if you have friends with this issue (who doesn’t), feel free to pass it along.
