Man I am getting tired of watching drug ads and research calls for common ailments.
Tonights special event on the tube:
"Are you depressed? You have signs of fatigue, weight gain, overeating, anti-social, hard to get out of bed some days? If so, you may be a candidate for a drug research trial at blah blah blah."
How about actually attempting to diagnose the CAUSE of the depression rather than medicating people? It is so simple to find causes of ailments if docs just take 30 minutes and actually talk with their patients.
Nowadays it is: "Whatcha got? Depression. Here's a script of DepressX. Ok - thanks." Done. $350.00 later the patient is drugged up and finds they have headaches, diarrhea or cannot sleep at night.
They come back to the doc two weeks later with this issue and doc says: "Whatcha got? Diarrhea. Here's a script of DiarrheaX. Ok - thanks."
Patient leaves, pops wonder pill, diarrhea gone. Depression is back. Shoot. What now? Month later, patient goes back and sees wonder doc. Doc says: "Whatcha got? Depression. Here's a script of DepressX2 - much better than the first one I gave ya. It's new."
Patient pops it along with the diarrheaX, DepressX and also DepressX2 as doc forgot to pull patient off of DepressX. Now patient is wired and cannot sleep at night and is having heart palpitations for 4 weeks.
Patient goes to wonder doc: "Whatcha got? Heart palpitations and I cannot sleep. Here's a script for SedativeA."
Patient pops it and now is depressed again - feels super sleepy and cannot do anything.
Goes back to doc 4 weeks later: "Whatcha got? Depression. Oh yeah - DepressX2 was pulled as it causes heart attacks. Try this one."
This is really what happens folks. I see this day in and day out in the clinic. Don't blindly watch the butterflies and happy people on TV taking pills for this that and everything else.
There is a cause to your illness. Find it will ya? You have diarrhea? Why? Food intolerance? Stress? No fiber in your diet? E coli infection? Celiac? Crohns? Hyperthyroid?
What about natural health techniques? Healthy eating, sleep, exercise, meditation, yoga, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, counseling, high force nutrients, vitamins, cell salts?????
The wonder and amazement of technology has impressed many. So many in fact that doctors cannot really diagnose much without running expensive MRI's, CT scans, x-rays, ultrasound, this that and every other blood test.
Folks - a good doctor gets their diagnosis from the history taking - the meat of diagnosis is in the history taking - 80% of diagnosis should come from that. It is not happening anymore.
Well - it is with naturopathic physicians and also with holistic MD's. Discover them. Use them.
It works. Day in and day out I see it, use it and patients are amazed by it.
Don't take my word for it - go see a licensed qualified naturopathic physician for yourself. Get better - the traditional way. The modern way may kill ya.
Granted the modern way is super dandy for many severe ailments - but not the common day to day ones. Sure if I have a heart attack, break my arm or have a serious bacterial infection, Ill use high force medical intervention - beyond that, Im all about traditional medicine.
I look forward to the day when drug ads go to the wayside. It will happen.
Find the cause. Lose the drugs.
