The underlying premise of conventional medicine is that something is wrong with the body that must be fixed from outside – that somehow man knows what to do better than the body itself. Conventional medicine looks for acute symptoms but not the true causes of those symptoms. Surprisingly to us, conventional medicine is rarely concerned with why the patient got cancer or autoimmune disease or heart disease or a digestive disorder. The view is still that something is wrong with the body and the body is helpless to fix it.
In Biological Medicine we begin with the premise that the body’s normal state is health, and that if health is lost, something from outside has derailed the body. We find that the causes of disease are multi-factorial and that no single remedy will restore health. But we know that the body’s power to heal can always be reawakened if the underlying causes of disease are addressed and the body is given the support it needs to regenerate.
Biological Medicine centers on discovering underlying sources of illness so that a tailored treatment plan can restore the body to optimal health. Practitioners of Biological Medicine do more than simply alleviate symptoms, they look for the cause of those symptoms to resolve the underlying issue. The issues that we always look for include:
- Heavy metals
- Trace element deficiencies
- Intestinal disturbances, including the wrong types of bacteria in your gut flora
- Food allergies and hidden intolerances
- Dental and other mouth/jaw disturbances
- Chronic viral infections
- Electromagnetic disturbances
- Proper acid-alkaline balance
- Improper detoxification
We call our medicine biological because it uses the methods of life itself – it is "bio-logical." In the condition we call health, the body is in a constant conversation with the world around it, taking in nutrition, responding to threats of infection, growing and repairing and detoxifying, all happening moment by moment, in a rich symphony of life.
