This blog will be used to document the insights and research gained from helping those with scoliosis and other musculoskeletal problems. Current methods of helping those with scoliosis is useless and dangerous, offering bracing to slow curve progression or surgery that leads to lifelong scar.
"It is my vision to transform the existing medical paradigm from one addicted to pharmaceuticals, surgeries and other methods that only mask symptoms to one focused on finding and treating the underlying causes."
In the medical perspective a scoliosis is purely seen and an abnormal curvature of the spine a syndrome or disease state. My personal views is that scolisois is merely a superficial symptom for something else happening on a deeper level, for scoliosis to exist certain deficiencies or imbalances must be present for an abnormal curvature to occur. These imbalances could be in the form of nutritional, digestive bacterial, hormonal and structural for a scoliosis to present. As such I have expanded my knowledge base from merely treating the structural component of scoliosis to incorporate nutritional, lifestyle management and life extension concepts into my practice. Spending a majority of my free time I have dedicated to helping my patients archive a higher level of health rather than merely eliminating there symptoms.
The conventional medical paradigm has been a destructive influence in our culture, promoting disease by pinning all focus on mere treatments that patch over existing illness while virtually ignoring both prevention and real cure. By far the key contributor to this dangerous misperception of what "healthcare" means is the pharmaceutical industry. The drug companies thrive in a state where people remain sick and more are getting sick, as that means both repeat customers and a growing base for their overpriced treatments.
It is no surprise, then, that the drug companies have traditionally been one of the most profitable industries on the planet, generating hundreds of billions of dollars in profit annually.
Current health care methods rely on disempowering patients by making them reliant on dangerous pharmaceutical drugs that merely mask symptoms or undergoing aggressive surgeries... In essence always being reliant on others for our own good health. If you are suffering from a chronic disease I challenge you to educate yourself about your own problem. With an abundance of information at easy access from the internet it is important to always be critical of everything that you read. Utilizing trusted sites such as:
While they are an excellent starting point for reliable and truthful information it is always important to work with a practitioner who takes the time to listen to you and understand your situation. For if your health challenge is to change for the better, you must first change yourself.
