Sick and tired of being sick and tired?
It seems like everyone is tired lately. How about you? The common sequence of events that you’re all too familiar with, is the following. You feel tired more than usual, and because you have to get things done, you push through and run on coffee and sometime energy drinks.You try to catch up on the weekends,but it doesn't get better, only worse. You go to see you primary Doctor,they do blood testing. When the results come back, they look pretty good and they think that is great, but you feel anything but normal. He/she recommends doing exercises and you try, but there is just no energy to do it and it take days to recover. The primary starts to ask questions about whether you are depressed and recommends a trial of anti-depressants. You think, I’m depressed because I feel so bad. So how can you feel so bad and have normal blood tests?
The answers come from the core approach of conventional medicine, and how they approach care. Conventional Medicine's training and focus is to treat and mostly control the acute manifestation of disease and its symptoms. This is done through the use of chemical patches. The control of education and research by the pharmaceutical industry has produced a healthcare industry that is strongly motivated by profit and the not the bigger picture of early detection and prevention of disease. The reality is that hundreds of chronic diseases are increasing and plaguing our world, could be mitigated, when the developing life threating condition was still in an amendable form, with natural means.
So, what do we do different in DNS. Designed Nutrition Systems and Functional Medicine was developed andcame out of a desire to see the underlying cause of disease be uncovered and changed.
The blood tests done by the primary, are placed in normal ranges that are developed by taking a bell curve of all people and then taking averages. If you are in the average, then you are OK. In other word, if everyone is sick and tired, then sick and tired becomes normal. Abnormal then becomes normal. So as long as everyone gets sick together,that’s considered normal. There has been a continued trend to widen blood normal ranges as the population gets sicker. Sounds crazy doesn't it! So, what has been done,is to narrow the normal blood ranges that produce optimum health not just survival. Specialty test have been developed, and in cases refocused in new direction, to look for the cause of chronic disease.
One of the major causes of chronic diseases, that has increased, isautoimmune disease. This entails hundreds of the most common diseases that are plaguing our population. Such as, Hashimotos(under active thyroid), hyperthyroidism, Lupus, Eczema, Psoriasis, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowell disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Cardiovascular disease to name a few.Type 1 diabetes and possibly type 2, cancer as well as many neurological diseases have like, ALS, Parkinson's disease, MS and Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, alsohas been linked to autoimmune disease.
There are reasons these conditions develop and cascade into severe, possibly life threating conditions.
In DNS we have strived to bring research and technology from all over the world to address underlying causes of inflammation, which is the major cause of chronic disease.
Your DNS practitioner has specialty training and unique tools to address the causes of inflammation and a path to optimum health, naturally.
