Chemical Balance, not disease
Stress, not disease

The aim of modern medicine is to diagnose and treat disease.  I have to say they do a remarkable job at that.  A disease is defined by many factors.  This includes symptoms and lab & examination findings. Once gathered, an allopathic doctor will look all of this information.  If everything fits – great – we’re able to diagnose, and therefore treat a specific disease.  But what happens if not everything fits? The medical community becomes stumped.  Now you enter the complex healthcare maze.  You run from specialist to specialist trying treatment after treatment looking for answers.  Or they use a catch all disease, like fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome or others.

But what if your suffering was NOT, I repeat NOT do to a disease process? HOW CAN THAT BE?  World Health Organization’s defines health as:  “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and NOT merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Modern medicine in America looks at health one way or another–you’re sick or you’re not.  There’s really no in between.

But the wellness model of health if you’re not at 100% optimal health, then your body is not functioning properly.  This doesn’t mean you’re diseased, it means your body is working under a state of stress.  Wellness doctors, like me call it adaptive physiology.  In biology, the term homeostasis refers to the ability of the body to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in external conditions.  That is your body’s ability to maintain balance and harmony to support health and proper function.  These problems arise when your body can’t maintain homeostasis.

Is there a Safe, Natural Answer?

This is exactly when Enzyme Nutrition is a perfect fit.   When there is any stress on any system, the body has to compensate for that.  This brings the body out of balance.  This imbalance often it leads to a collection of symptoms that does not fit a disease process.

If you are suffering from health issues that no one has been able to “diagnose”, give us a call and set up a consultation.  We will take the time to sit down and talk with you about your suffering. We will even do some preliminary testing to determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we will make every effort to find an appropriate referral.
