WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL / NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Are you suffering from a condition and no one has been able to help you understand what’s wrong? Have you seen a bunch of standard medical doctors only to watch them run tests you know won’t reveal the real issue as soon as they start testing? Let Dr. Lewis be your Medical Detective and help you find and treat the cause of your suffering.
Functional / Naturopathic medicine is a practice that looks at the body holistically. What that means is we treat the body as an entire system in order to identify the CAUSE of what is plaguing you. In today’s society, modern medicine has turned to a “quick fix” approach. We don’t mean to criticize modern medicine as it’s achieved some amazing things and it’s existence is totally necessary. The problem lies where we are leaning on it too heavily to fix all of our problems. Ultimately, doctors are prescribing medications to mask symptoms, not heal your body.
FUNCTIONAL & NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE: FINDING THE CAUSE
What masking symptoms does is allow the patient to return to their regularly scheduled lifestyle – which is usually what caused the problems to begin with. In addition, modern medicine makes little to no tweaks to patients diets when chronic illness arrives. They stick by their policies that through their line of thinking which are endorsed by the FDA). If a patient is inquisitive and ask questions, doctors will say that treatments or cleanses you might learn about on YouTube and the internet haven’t been proven. Furthermore, since it hasn’t been proven by the FDA they will never even attempt to educate the patient about alternative methods that may aid the patient while consuming prescribed pharmaceuticals.
THE EFFECTS OF PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS
Pharmaceutical drugs, while they may be effective at masking symptoms temporarily – do a number on your internal organs. Anti-biotics have been proven to wipe out the good bacteria in your immune system which makes you more susceptible to all sorts of infections and disease. When a Z-pack is prescribed for instance, the doctors rarely – if ever – educate the patient on how to re-cultivate the good bacteria in their gut. Other prescriptions tax your stomach, intestines, liver and other organs. What we are seeing is an influx of young Americans ages 20-40 being diagnosed with autoimmune issues such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and even premature neurapathy. This is a direct effect of the way our food is processed in conjunction with the medicine we’ve been taking our whole lives. In some ways, you can say that the business that is today’s medical industry might be designed to make you dependent on their products and treatments.
