We Are All The Same
What we eat, how we eat, and when we eat has changed more in the last 40 years than it has in the previous 40,000. This is a blink of the eye in our evolutionary history and the body has been unable to keep pace with this change, and this has led to problems. These problems are most commonly expressed in the body as a consequence of intracellular dehydration, changes in the body’s pH and the decline in numbers and biodiversity of our bacterial biomass. These are the ‘up-stream’ causes of disease which manifests ‘down-stream’ in the form of symptoms. It is these up-stream ‘drivers of dis-ease’ which lead to the myriad sets of symptoms and maladies commonly finding expression in the western world today.
Interestingly, a common set of symptoms present for the vast majority of sufferers irrespective of their condition:
- Mood disorders
- Circulatory problems
- Urinary frequency at night
- Digestive upset
- Reproductive dysfunction
- Poor quality hair, skin and nails.
We are not all ‘different’, indeed we are very much the same. We share the same biochemistry, so does it not stand to reason that when this biochemistry is unbalanced we should share a similar set of symptoms? To see how a machine works, you can pull it apart. But to see how a living being works, it must be seen as a sum of its parts working in unity with its natural environment. Modern medicine hopes to find cures for disease by studying the disease itself instead of focusing on the conditions which allowed the disease to manifest in the first instance. Health and vitality are not possible until the conditions are present that are favourable for health and vitality.
The health care system of the future we believe will incorporate the best of the old with the best of the new.
