When attempting to overcome a chronic health issue, from allergies to autoimmune, there are several factors that need to be orchestrated in order to get the desired effect. Unfortunately, most doctors fail miserably.

First of all, to get rid of any chronic health problem you need to address the various infections that are creating dissonance between organs, glands, and tissues inside the body that causes them to malfunction which create the symptoms you are trying to eliminate. In order to do this you need to remove these biological, chemical, and ethereal “poisons” in a NATURAL way to avoid more chemical damage and residue from common interventions like prescribed antibiotics.

Secondly, you need to address the nutrient deficiencies caused by these infections, poor food quality, and poor digestive capacity. Individual nutrients, IV’s, and the majority of supplements don’t typically cut the mustard in chronic disease cases, when it comes to satisfactory resolution.

Now, the easiest and most effective way for most people to accomplish these two things (removing various infections and rectifying nutrient deficiencies) is through a comprehensive food, supplementation, and lifestyle plan.

So where are the gaps with conventional medicine in this highly effective approach?

To begin with, conventional medicine ALWAYS inflicts CHEMICAL infections with the synthetic nature of their prescriptions and traumatic procedures. No exceptions. So there is ALWAYS a trade off when you take something like an antibiotic because although it will often (but not always) work on clearing a biological infection, it also creates a chemical infection and a clearing of beneficial microorganisms inside the body which will lead to reduced function.

It’s a lot like clearing weeds from your grass with Round Up (glyphosate). You may end up with no weeds, but now your grass is dying…

The other MAJOR gap in conventional medicine is that they rarely go after the SOURCE of the problem, but rather, the symptoms. This is akin to trying to clear the smoke from a fire, without addressing the fire itself. So the fire continues to burn, creating endless smoke, and you’re stuck trying to avoid that symptom as the fire creates even more hazards from the perpetual burning.

As for nutritional advice, conventional doctors are typically poorly trained. Any advice they do give is likely based on their own limited studies or experience, and certainly nowhere near enough for someone dealing with chronic disease conditions.

As for lifestyle, well, the stand pat answer of limit your stress, exercise more, and avoid a handful of foods is PANDERING at best.

So how do alternative medicine doctors improve on this?

Well, they usually avoid the chemical infections by not using poisonous prescriptions and procedures which is a massive improvement in your care. Unfortunately, they often over rely on supplementation at the expense of more detailed food and lifestyle advice.

They will also go after the SOURCE of the problem in many cases, rather than pandering to the symptoms, which is also a big step forward.

So the gaps in their approach is typically not addressing diet as comprehensively as they should, overwhelming clients with too many isolated nutrients via supplementation, and failing to approach the individual holistically, that is, through the necessary body, mind, and spirit realignment.

The other major gap in both professions is that they don’t offer mentoring of any kind. Anyone with a chronic health problem could use a quality mentor, to be able to be guided through a period of time, consistently, until they reach a level of health they are satisfied with that they can take over and continue the journey themselves, if required.

And that is the final and LARGE gap, the lack of significant EDUCATION and empowerment, that allows you to be the primary physician for your health needs, because no one cares more about your health situation and has more control, than YOU.

Address these gaps, and you’re on the right path. The body is far more miraculous than you have been led to believe. I found this out many years ago from healing my body without either conventional or alternative medicine doctors, and then for many years after teaching people how they could be the HERO in their health journey by taking the reigns.

It all starts, with a paradigm shift. Then, all you need to do is fill in the gaps they can’t address. The rest, will be history.

An excellent place to start, is in the THRIVE Academy.
