Most of the things that go wrong in the human body aren’t caused by accidents, they’re chronic long-term problems like hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, etc. If you take the pharmaceutical approach you’re just putting a bandaid on it rather than investigating why the body did that.
What we’ve found is that there are two major underlying issues when the patient has a symptom. One is that they have things in their body that shouldn’t be there, such as toxins or infections. Two is that they have a deficiency of nutrients; things that should be there that aren’t. Unless they’re supplementing, most people are deficient in vitamin D, zinc, omega 3 fats, and more.
