This is what I’ve been saying for years but heck I’m not a doctor, have no fancy credentials, etc. I'm just a mom and woman in her 60’s who’s been through all the health issues that are related to inflammation and food ie: gluten/wheat. I discovered over five years ago why I was suffering for all those years (about 12 to be exact) and I took the right steps to get better and continue to walk the talk and pass it on.
Today while working out at Curves there was one of the ladies there in her 70’s who’s had some issues lately with knee/joint pain. She said it was her cartridge wearing out. I suggested she get some Glucosamine. She didn’t even know what that was. Here’s how the conversation went:
Me: Hey get some Glucosamine, it’s great for your joints.
Another lady there in her 70’s chimed in: I heard that stuff doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do.
Me: Who told you that? Your doctor I bet right? Duh!
Me: Of course the doctors tell you that! They want you on all the drugs they prescribe!
I’m so sick and tired of all these doctors who are supposed to be helping people get healthy just making us sicker and sicker! Well afterall that's what they are trained to do. And the sad thing is, most of these people (in particular the elderly) listen to them and do what they say! It’s negligence if you ask me! But hey what do I know?! I stopped going to medical doctors years ago because all they did was give my disease some name and give me drugs to mask the symptoms. I was on about 5 different medications and weened off all of them in 2006 and haven't been on any since and I turn 61 this July.
Here’s what Dr. Mark Hyman says, and he’s one of the good medical doctors in my humble opinion!
If you are sick, if you have been to multiple doctors looking for answers to how to get better, if you feel like all you get is labels and pills, and if you want the answer to why you are sick and how to get to the root cause, and how to heal without drugs or surgery, then you need to read this new book by my mentor, and teacher, and the founder of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, Disease Delusion.
You don't need a doctor for every inch of you. You need a new roadmap for how we get sick and how we can get better. This is the future of medicine. But you don't have to wait for the tomorrow get access to what all doctors will be practicing in 20 years. You can learn how to heal your chronic diseases and nagging symptoms now.
