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.

  4. I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net will
    probably be a lot more useful than ever before.

  5. When the cells lack insulin they become starved and since
    there is no other source of energy apart from the fats, they get used up.
    There are several testimonials available from users of The Diabetes Protocol
    Program. Check out the National Institute of Health’s Portion Distortion website for more examples and pictures
    of portion distortion.

  6. One of the vital ways of doing this is through a volleyball recruiting skills
    video. The word Jersey by itself stems from the region in the Channel Islands, acknowledged
    for trades of knitted goods since the medieval era.

    Attach some shiny stickers, a sweet-smelling pencil or cheery bookmark and you will have a great little ceremony
    to help your students remember the fun they had
    learning in your classroom.
