Conventional medicine, in the realm of chronic disease
Most doctor visits are because of symptoms due to the body being unable to overcome the daily stresses of our environment including bacterial infections or viruses, or due to a degenerative / chronic condition
Conventional medicine aims to control these symptoms using drugs, with unintended direct effects (actually not side-effects)
Human cells are not designed to let laboratory chemicals enter, so pharmaceutical molecules are designed to block, inhibit or override natural pathways and processes in an attempt to suppress a symptom (paliative)
medical paradigm :
is reductionist in treating the body as separate parts, rather than an interconnected symphony of systems working synergistically together
doesn’t engage in getting to the root cause
doesn’t engage in education or prevention to strengthen the body against disease
The Body is a Healing System.

Taking personal responsibilty for one's health is a vital and conscious decision.
We share a collective understanding that someone else (usually a doctor) must bring us to healing and health.
When we are faced with a health challenge, our first reflex is often to book an appointment with a doctor so he can give us 'medicine' to 'make us better'. By now we know, all he can do is suppress symptoms (dumbing down the voice of our body which is trying to telling us something is going wrong). Read here to understand what's actually taking place and why you are your own best doctor.
If we doubt our body's capacity to heal itself, consider the fact that it formed itself out of a single cell, each one dividing again and again and by divine wisdom, specialising, to become either a heart cell, a hair folicle or tooth enamel.
Were we created with a deficit of pharmaceutical drugs?
