Medicalizing Life’s Problems – Rather Than Solving the Root Issues
Here’s a little story from Dr. Goldberg for you, to kick off this topic:
“We had a 47-year-old female patient, who following the advice of her Holistic, Functional Gynecologist, had a complete hysterectomy, plus a bilateral mastectomy based only on having the BRCA II gene. This was followed by a year of Diflucan prescribed by a local Naturopath and being placed on Thyroid Replacement Therapy because her T3 level was one point below normal. She now has silicone breast implants to boot. Pretty frightening, all in the name of being ‘natural’. We are increasingly seeing this type of scenario.”
Dr. Paul Goldberg specializes in chronic disease reversal and healed himself of severe rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis in his twenties. Now in his sixties, he continues to experience robust health, but his daily supplement list consists of nothing more than a multi-vitamin. WHY? Because his daily, normal life supports the innate healing ability of the human body.
We talk about some of these “common sense measures” in this teleseminar. And I have to say, it gave me a tremendous feeling of hope and vision for something I have believed in and promoted for a long time. As Dr. Goldberg says:
“Odd how we are expected to conduct large scale, double-blind, case control studies on the employment of sunlight, fasting, liquid diets, emotional counseling, extended rest and sleep, pulling people off poisonous habits (e.g. drugs, alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, etc.) – what we view as common sense measures. Also, a great deal of time is given to each patient and effort is made to sort out etiological (disease-causing) factors.”
For example, did you know that 1/3 of female patients are on thyroid hormone replacement – without the effort to first find out why the thyroid is unbalanced and employ natural corrective measures – and that it can take as little as 1 year (and as long as 7 years) of even natural or bio-identical thyroid supplementation for your own thyroid gland to atrophy and cease functioning? So how ‘natural’ are bio-identical hormones and dessicated pig thyroid (Armour Thyroid) if they cause your own thyroid gland to cease functioning?
Having done two in-depth teleseminars on balancing hormones, this call really hit home for me in a number of areas – listen in and you’ll find out why and no doubt have a few ‘eureka’ moments yourself! Just click the PLAY button, or download it:
Did you also know that in order to get your Vitamin D from sunlight, you shouldn’t shower for an hour afterwards – your body needs that fatty sweat layer to convert the sunlight to cholecalciferol?
LOTS more gems in this call and hopefully you will feel empowered with renewed faith in the healing ability of your own body.
