Symptoms diagnosis - or a medical label?

There is a basic misconception of what diagnosing a symptom is in conventional medicine. Medical diagnosis - or identifying illness or disorder - should tell you everything about your health problem, correct? In the reality of conventional medical practice, it very seldom does. Your dizziness may lead into a diagnosis of "high blood pressure". Or your joint pain into diagnosing "arthritis".

Now you know that you have hypertension, or that your joints ache (which you knew very well before), but the "diagnosis" tells you about as much as "purple fantasy" why it is, actually, happening to you.

Identifying type of malfunction - usually the last in a chain of adverse reactions - is only the first step in establishing a true diagnosis. What really matters is,

what is it that causes body to malfunction?

The whole purpose of commencing medical examination should be to find out where the disease - high blood pressure, joint inflammation/degeneration, or any other health disorder - originates, so that it can be addressed and corrected.

Strangely enough, all that conventional medicine seems to be interested in is labeling your symptom with a disease label. Unless that disease belongs to a relatively few directly caused by infectious microorganisms,

the actual cause simply isn't part of the picture.

Healing, through identifying and correcting the cause, isn't the objective. Your doc is likely to settle with suppressing the symptom with medications.

The only other official option is surgery - or chemotherapy/radiation for cancer - neither of which addresses actual cause of the disease.

In other words, you've got a label for your symptom, and prescribed treatment that should make you feel better. But what you really want is to

make your disease disappear!

That may not be nearly as easy as you'd want it to be. If you are lucky, your doctor will be able to do that for you. But don't count on it. In order to cure anything, one needs to know what is causing it. How well does conventional medicine know what causes degenerative diseases? Refer to any medical textbook. You'll find many pages filled with pretentious medical verbiage, but when it comes to spelling out the cause, it is for most every degenerative disease

listed as "not known"

or, at best, statistically related to one or more possible contributing factors.

In short, your doctor most often won't be able to tell you what is it that causes your disease, but will have the "right" medication ready for you nevertheless.

It becomes even scarier when you look into Physician's Desk Reference and find out that for most of the prescription drugs it states:

"the mechanism of action is unknown".

In other words, what they are saying is that they have no idea what else inside you - beside your symptom - the drug could be affecting. Is it wonder that there is so many adverse health effects from taking drugs? Of course not. What is sort of hard to understand is that pharmaceutical companies - and medical establishment condoning drug treatments -

don't get sued for damaging people's health.

Practically, you are taking health treatment at your own risk. It is assumed that both, Big Pharma and doctors have your best interest at the heart, and if you don't get better, or get worse, it is none of their fault. You've been warned you may suffer, right?

Who else gets such a generous treatment? Can your car mechanic take your money for letting your car fall apart - or for fixing one thing, while causing something else to fail - and to have that legally incorporated in his business practices? Nope - he has to know what he is doing. He is responsible for the result. One could say that we value our cars more than ourselves.

Or have we

allowed a bunch of snake-oil salesman to lure us into believing
that it is "the way it's supposed to be"?

In any event, your only official medical option is allopathic (suppressing symptom) treatment, without any effort made to address the actual cause. Arthritis pain can be caused by any of a number of factors (alone or combined), and so can high blood pressure, or any organ failure. The onset of a degenerative disease is often time caused by an underlying, hidden condition, such as leaky gut, itself caused by intestinal dysbiosis/inflammation and further complicated by poor diet choices, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, or toxic body contamination.


none of these is likely to be addressed in the routine
medical procedure,

nor fallowing treatment. If you find yourself in such situation, the only hope is in finding another doctor, one who does look for the cause of a disease, rather than sentencing you to a lifetime of drugs and likely health deterioration, by conforming to drug-selling business scheme disguised as medicine.

One word of advice: don't wait for the symptoms of a disease to start thinking about your health. Absence of symptoms doesn't mean that you are healthy. Out of a quarter of million people that die of sudden cardiac arrest every year in the U.S., one half

had no symptom history.

A tiny little bacteria that has found home in your body, and gave you a silent chronic internal infection, may finally get to your heart and cause it to stop. Or it can be diabetes, or high blood pressure you are not even aware of, or acute severe magnesium deficiency, or just about anything.

Don't be a seating duck. Most people who get cancer don't have any serious symptoms up

until it gets deadly serious.

And, according to recent statistical data, one out of every two Americans will be diagnosed with cancer within the lifetime. Heads or tails?

So, whether you have symptoms of a disease, or not, it pays to learn how to take good care of your health. And it doesn't have to take much of your time. While it is truth that our body chemistry is incredibly complex, what is needed to maintain health for most folks boils down to:

good food, pure water and clean air.

Add to it the time to rest or relax, and a handful of laughs sprinkled throughout the day. It is pretty simple on this end - you just need to find out what is good for you, and what is not. And much of it you can acquire from causal readings in your spare time, such as this one.

In the first place, you need to know what is it that your body needs, and what is hurting it. So that you can optimize your nutritional intake and detoxify yourself and your living environment. If anything, that may spare you from disease down the road.

And if you do get to the disease stage, you need to know the cause of the ailment. It can only be established with appropriate medical tests (most of them you still won't get to see recommended by your doctor, but you sure can ask for having them done).

And you, or your doctor, can have the first indication of a possible specific cause only if you relate the symptoms to your full medical history (including your diet, occupation, living environment and lifestyle) and well known major factors causing diseases.

That is the only way to protect your health. The other two options are either do nothing and let it slide downhill, or to merely keep suppressing symptoms with drugs, while the initial disease worsens and additional diseases develop as a result of drug toxicity.
