The problem with modern medicine is that current diagnostic tools can
only pick up pathologies. They CANNOT detect imbalances in the early
stages. This means they are waiting for an imbalance to bloom into a
disease before acting.
Five thousand years ago, doctors
detected subtle imbalances and warded off disease using pulse diagnosis.
Today we can also use muscle testing, also known as Applied Kinesiology
(AK), for early diagnosis. These valuable tools can help doctors detect
not only early imbalances, but the root of the problem.
long as you treat superficial manifestations of the disease process, you
will be following symptoms around the body, never getting to the
underlying problem. Thus, it will be very difficult, if not impossible,
to fix the condition.
OUNCE OF PREVENTION
shows that doctors used indigenous plants and herbs (even food and
spices) to treat imbalances. In the so-called "scientific era" medicine
gave up natural modalities and adopted pharmacology (drugs), with all
their side effects.
Early methods of diagnosis were pushed
aside for fancy-sounding diagnostic tools, such as CAT scans,
colonoscopies, MRIs, EKGs, and EEGs. While it is a great boon to have
these new methods of detection and drugs available to use in a crisis,
we can avoid the need for such tests and therapy if we reverse
Remember an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure. Food is out best pharmacy. A sound diet, along with
herbs, spices, teas and a good daily routine, can prevent or treat most
imbalances. As can twice-yearly cleansing of impurities.
REVERSAL OF IMBALANCES
We do not go from health to pathology overnight. It takes time. The
ancient doctors of Ayurveda identified six stages in which the body
4. Moving and localization at a distant site
6. Distinction/Chronic Complications
In lay terms, this means there are no symptoms in the first two stages
of a disease process. Nonetheless, imbalances are forming. In the third
and fourth stages, symptoms develop. In the fifth and sixth stages,
Western medicine diagnoses a disease and gives it a name: diabetes,
multiple sclerosis, cancer, Alzheimer's and so on.
of medicine should be to detect imbalances in the early stages and
reverse them so that the body can regain its health. The earlier we
detect these imbalances, the easier they are to reverse, using dietary
changes and nutritional supplements.
