The advantages of modern Western medicine have
conditioned us to getting results quickly by "fixing" the symptoms. We take
a 10-day prescription of antibiotics and
if the infection is not gone, we take a second 10-day prescription (perhaps
a stronger or more targeted antibiotic) and in less than 30 days we think we
are well because all the symptoms are gone. Broken bones have a range of
3-24 weeks to heal, with the average taking 6-8 weeks in a cast. While
getting results quickly is advantageous, it does have disadvantages:
original cause of the symptom may not be addressed, so the body is
dependent for life on the drug or isolated supplement.
Because the origin of the illness is not balanced, the
symptoms can come back when the drug or isolated supplement is
Drugs and even some isolated supplements have potential
effects or toxicity.
To avoid these Western medicine disadvantages,
it literally pays to think and act "wholistically." Here are three examples.
In the normal regeneration cycle of the
digestive tract, every intestinal cell is replaced every 6 months. If you or
your pet has severe inflammatory bowel symptoms, there
be as much as 50-75% intestinal cellular degeneration. While a healthy,
balanced digestive tract could replace 75% of its intestinal cells in 4.5
months (6 months X 75%), an unhealthy digestive tract, not feed the proper
nutrition and not absorbing all its nutrients should take much longer
(holistically 6-12 months). So many people try holistic remedies and give up
after 1-2 months if the symptoms are not all gone, concluding the
supplement(s) did not work. They may have the very product that could
balance their or their pet's digestive tract permanently but did not give it
long enough for the body to heal itself (6+ months) based on the normal
regeneration cycle of the body's digestive tract. Discover the success our
clients (both people and pets) have had with digestive issues by going to
our web page,
Bowel Condition - Holistic Perspective. Here is a second example of
Western medical impatience.
The body normally replaces red blood cells
every 120 days. This is a mere 6% regeneration every week in a healthy,
balanced body. So, if an anemic body with an autoimmune condition (IMHA
or AIHA) is 80%
deficient in red blood cells, it would take a normal, balanced body 96 days
or 13+ weeks to "fix" that deficiency. When the body also has an
autoimmune condition, where it is inexplicably destroying healthy red blood
cells, this process will take much longer than 120 days, even with Western
drugs. Unfortunately, with IMHA or AIHA, the body does not have the luxury
of time since the autoimmune condition is destroying red blood cells faster
than the bone marrow can replace them. An anemic body can starve from lack
of oxygen when the brain shuts down non-essential organ functions. This is
where our holistic super nutrition can be a good adjunct to any Western
medical treatment by providing a complementary path to accelerate the body's
(brain's) normal regeneration process. Uncover the details on our web pages,
Hemolytic Anemia and
AutoImmune Hemolytic Anemia.
One final, more esoteric example of Western medical impatience.
When the COVID-19 virus emerged it was called
"2019 novel coronavirus" or "2019-nCoV". The word "novel" means 'new.' Like
anything new in science, it is processed using the standard scientific
beginning question is postulated, then research starts to collect data.
hypothesis is formed based on preliminary data. This hypothesis is
expected to change as more data is researched and analyzed.
Based on newly observed data the original hypothesis is refined into a
scientific principle or conclusion, covering more details as the
Finally, when enough data has been analyzed to confirm the scientific
conclusion is not changing anymore, then it is accepted as a scientific
fact or principle.
The reason why it is important to understand
how this scientific method actually works, is because we have seen too many
people disbelieve the seriousness of the 2019 novel coronavirus, now called
COVID-19 for short, and the use of facemasks because the "facts" in the
media keep changing. The critics say, how can we believe the "authorities"
when they keep changing their story. The conditions for infection, symptoms
and prevention keep shifting. The doctors and politicians have done a
flip/flop (180º turn) on the use of facemasks. Since we are still in the
research and analysis stages of steps 1 & 2 in the above scientific method,
that is to be expected. We must learn from the original mistakes in the
hypothesis as we progress towards a COVID-19 solution/remedy.
If one only gets their news from social media,
they will obviously get a slanted or one-pointed perspective. Anyone can
dress up in a medical costume and state in a video that
current consensus is bunk and here is the "real" story because I am a nurse
or doctor. When one "fact checks" their statement, one can find many
scientific holes in their emotional logic. That is the whole point of doing
the video, to appeal to your emotional (not scientific) logic to prove their
unsubstantiated and often erroneous perspective. The original purpose
(hypothesis) for using facemasks was based on protecting the wearer, as in
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Scientist and doctors now agree that
only N95 facemasks can do that efficiently. Simple cloth and even surgical
facemasks are only 25-75% effective for personal protection. But new
analysis has shown if BOTH parties wear facemasks, this can be a very
effective barrier for transmission of the virus, to protect
you AND me. Here is a recent example published on the
Absence of Apparent Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from Two Stylists After
Exposure at a Hair Salon with a Universal Face
Covering Policy — Springfield, Missouri, May 2020:
139 clients exposed to two symptomatic hair stylists with confirmed COVID-19
while both the stylists and the clients wore face masks, no
symptomatic secondary cases were reported; among 67 clients tested
for SARS-CoV-2, all test results were negative. Adherence to the community's
and company's face-covering policy likely mitigated spread of SARS-CoV-2."
In our holistic opinion, it is too soon to draw
firm medical conclusions regarding COVID-19, when we are still in the
research and analysis stages. One thing is becoming very apparent though,
our current loose social distancing
are not enough to stop the pandemic. There are too many hot spots raging out
of control. With fall and winter coming, if these hot spots are not cooled
down, the United States is in a trajectory for becoming the hot spot of the
world. We can stop the pandemic without another lockdown and without
destroying the economy, if we are considerate about the other person and
stop thinking selfishly about our own
(freedom to not wear a facemask). Western society is in a "living
COVID-19 laboratory." Do you want to be on the winning (surviving) side? Ask
yourself, is my action immune-enhancing and life-sustaining?
Instead of practicing Western medical impatience, by acting holistically we
can collectively prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and save ourselves,
our pets and the world.
