The living puzzle we call our body.

As always, I am constantly trying to come up with the wording to help people understand the difference between what I do and what happens at a typical medical doctors office.

This morning the following analogy came to mind.  I would love your input.  Does this help explain things, or does it just make it more confusing?

Your body is made up of trillions of cells.  These cells are arranged into tissues, organs and organ systems that work together to perform the various activities needed to keep the community (body) alive.  Think of it as a complex moving puzzle.  

When you go to a typical medical doctor with a problem s/he is going to perform a series of exams that may include blood work, xrays, sonograms, MRIs, and other tests.  The purpose of these exams is to take the puzzle apart and look at the smaller pieces more closely to try and determine what exactly is causing your discomfort.  Their entire system is based on this reductionist model of the body.  Their preferred treatments are based on taking over for what ever piece of the puzzle isn’t working right with external chemical or surgical interventions. 

What i do is interview you to see where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go with the remainder of your life.  I perform a few orthopedic and neurological tests to get your body to show me what it is dealing with.  Then I set about restoring things to a more natural configuration, allowing the innate intelligence of the body to regenerate itself into a more vigorous and happy formation moving forward.  

Sometimes aggressive intervention is necessary.  But I have found over the years, most of the time, my methods are much more likely to produce a happy outcome in both the short and long term with far fewer side effects and subsequent illness.

  1. Hi Dr D This is Pam Vandel. I think this is very well stated…clear and concise. I think there is a great move among ‘realistic thinkers’ on the planet now and more people every day will find YOUR approach at the top of the list…conventional follow up if needed. I think many people are working on eating healthy food, livingmore ‘forgiving’, loving lives and getting more excercise. Even many of the ‘diet’ programs are addressing the body knowing that it can indeed heal itself with proper care. You know I SO BELIEVE in you and what you do. I enjoy my email updates from you. Thanks

  3. I do agree with all the concepts you have introduced for
    your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from next
    time? Thank you for the post.
