Allopathic Medical Treatment vs. Integrative Therapy “Duck” taping the symptoms vs. treating the underlying causes

The concepts put forth in this article can be applied to any situation in life. Once you open your eyes and dissect the problem, the solution becomes obvious. Case in point. I had an infestation problem in my house with moth flies for two and a half years. I searched the Internet using the tag line pest management solutions and tried many recommendations to no avail. I even hired several professional exterminators also with no luck.

With a heightened state of frustration, I literally went to war with these moth flies. I purchased several dozens of rolls of sticky fly paper, every insect spray available, bug zappers strategically placed throughout my house, and I even bought an industrial sized bug zapper placed in my basement. I killed thousands of them but they kept coming on like a Chinese army. After pondering this problem for over two years, the light bulb finally went on. What was the source of these critters? Once I realized where their breading site was, the slim in my French drains surrounding my basement, I embarked on a solution.

While shaving one morning I noticed a box of Twenty Mule Team Borax sitting on the countertop that my house keeper had inadvertently left the day before. What if I sprinkle the powder in the French drains and smother the larvae. No one ever mentioned this novel approach and I thought what do I have to lose. So I went on line and purchased eight boxes and sprinkled them in all the drains in my basement. I also sprayed the slime on the cinder blocks with the insecticide spray. Within one week my two and half year infestation problem was solved. They all disappeared as if the piper lured them off to the river.

Approaching solutions for medical problems is no different. What is the underlying cause of the problem? The following examples will drive home the concept.

Cancer: Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize in 1931 because he discovered the cause of cancer. He discovered that ALL cancers are due to an oxygen deficiency. All cells require oxygen, however, when the cell membranes become corrupted with omega 6 adulterated oils (corn, soy, canola, safflower, sunflower), the oxygen levels will drop. When the level drops by 35% for a prolonged time, fermentation occurs and cancer occurs. Repair the cell membrane with organic, cold pressed omega 6 oils, remove toxins, and feed the body real food (organic fresh vegetables, organic meat, etc.) and the body will revert back to factory default and the cancer will disappear.

Auto Immune Disease: The human body does not attack itself for no reason. There is some toxin, virus, bacteria, heavy metal, pesticide, insecticide, herbicide, chemical in the tissue or organs that the body’s immune system is attaching. Remove the offending substance and the auto immune issue will disappear.

Allergies: Invariably allergies are due to a weaken immune system. Our polluted environment has the effect of causing an underactive thyroid, underactive adrenal glands and congested liver (main filter of the body). Remove or dramatically reduce the toxic burden on the immune system and the allergies will disappear. Treating the symptoms is like killing the moth flies. The problem will never get solved.

Headaches (migraines, tension, menstrual): There are only 400 different causes for headaches. A good diagnostician will search for the cause. Aged cheeses and meats, fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi tend to be high in migraine-triggering tyramine. The same fermented foods contain sulfites, which also dilate blood vessels causing headaches. Another primary source is distortions of the 28 cranial bones of the skull. A malocclusion or poor bite can be the cause for the cranial distortions. Also concussions will reverse the motion of the base of the skull causing unrelenting headaches. Hormone imbalances specially estrogen dominance and a low functioning thyroid can be responsible for headaches. Even a deficiency of natural B complex vitamins can cause headaches.The key is to determine the many possibilities and remove the initiators and the headaches will disappear.

The above examples are just a few of the medical issues that can be totally solved if the practitioner has a broad base of knowledge to seek out the causes. Just like a moth fly problem one has to remove the breeding source to remove the problem. And lastly, the closer one gets to the truth the more simplistic the solution.
