Often a visit with a doctor for a new problem is remedied with a medication. The medication may remedy a symptom but never resolves what is causing the problem.
Chronic medical problems can revolve in the same vicious cycle.
When medications are prescribed for an initial problem without resolving the underlying cause, a more chronic condition usually follows. Additional medications are often prescribed to counter adverse effects of the others. Over time, this wears down physiological function and vitality.
Family disease patterns, lifestyle factors, nutritional factors, diet, and energetics are part of an integrative approach to promote good and long lasting health. Western medicine specialists practice medicine by prescribing medications and surgery;
Integrative Medicine specialists practice medicine by restoring health without interfering with the body’s natural function.
