Our health is complicated.
As a medical student I spent my first years of study learning the basic medical information, but then I spent an extra seven years for additional training to gain all the knowledge I felt I needed to practice as a German trained family doctor incorporating natural and alternative medicine education into my work.
First, Seek to Understand
One of the core principles of German metabolic medicine is: “YOU CAN’T FIX WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.”
Too often doctors are trained to take a very quick but superficial approach to helping a patient. Under pressure to produce quick results, most basically end up prescribing (toxic) artificial drugs to suppress the symptoms of the problem, instead of investigating to identify the underlying cause.
It is important for doctors and medical professionals to spend time with the patient to investigate at a deeper level so the original cause of the problems are found, so that a more meaningful treatment plan can be constructed that will actually produce healing, repair, regeneration and restoration of health – preferably using safer, more effective natural medicine.
Physical – Emotional Connections
The second principle to know is this: There is a power – a direct connection between our physical/biological health and our mental/emotional/psychological health.
The physical and the mental or emotional are two aspects of the same bring – YOU. You might think you can separate them, but you can’t. Their inter-connectedness is a basic law both of science and of nature.
We have worked with many hundreds of children and adults who have emotional health issues, but because our approach is different, so are our results.
When the Cure is Worse than the Disease
A simple example is this: You can take Rx prescription psycho-active drugs like Lexapro, Prozac, Wellbutrin and others. These substances are are fundamentally toxic, and taking them puts highly dangerous – and sometimes fatal – chemicals into your body. They might slightly modify or relieve your symptoms but they do not actually produce healing.
Think about it. If your body chemistry is already compromised does it make more sense to put more toxic chemicals into your body, or to use a non-toxic, more target-specific natural approach to actually promote healing?
Science has definitively proven, for example, that 90% of people who are depressed are critically lacking certain nutrients, especially vitamin B complex. When you restore internal nutritional balance, guess what? The patient gets better.
This is the power of natural and alternative medicine. Your symptoms are NOT your problem – what CAUSED your symptoms is what needs to be fixed.
You Can Feel Better
You don’t have to live with depression. You also don’t have to live on toxic and mind-altering Rx prescription medications with their dangerous side-effects.
Natural healing and long-term relief is possible – IF you know what to do and you do it the right way.
