The right approach to “chronic diseases,” utilizing a BioHygienic Program,[1] allows the opportunity for patients to restore their health. Why do patients with medically defined chronic ailments, under Medical Care, not get well?  Medical Approaches include Conventional Medicine, Alternative Medicine and Functional Medicine (which combines Conventional and Alternative Medicine into a one stop shopping disaster). Why do these Medical Approaches assure failure?

Health cannot be recovered by ignoring causal factors or by plying ourselves with pharmaceuticals, potions, pills, nostrums, hormones and therapies unrelated to why we became ill.

Chronic diseases, by Medical definition, are Medically diagnosed problems one will not recover from. Indeed, if one takes a Medical Approach (whether Conventional, Alternative or Functional medicine) to “chronic conditions” one will not obtain health. Health cannot be recovered by ignoring causal factors or by plying ourselves with pharmaceuticals, potions, pills, hormones and therapies unrelated to why we became ill. Health cannot be restored if we fail to create the right conditions that cause health to occur.

The list of conditions listed as chronic diseases by the Medical Matrix[2] has grown exponentially since I studied Chronic Disease Control as a graduate student in the 70’s at the University of Texas Medical Center. The increasing number of chronic conditions and patients suffering from them, despite being under medical care, is damning evidence of the failure of Medical Approaches. Common “chronic diseases” include the growing list of autoimmune disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Hashimoto’s Disease, Eosinophilic Gastritis, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, and other chronic afflictions such as Diabetes, Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease. There are also legions of patients suffering with chronic functional issues such as irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic indigestion, skin disorders, etc., who are also labeled by The Medical Matrix as being “chronically” ill. “Chronic Mental disorders” have become rampant including chronic depression and anxiety where patients are plied with toxic pharmaceuticals.  

Labeled with a medically defined chronic disease is a guarantee by the Medical Matrix that recovery will not occur. You cannot arrive at a health destination by following Medicine’s Pathway of drugs, potions and pills that it admits will not bring you to a state of health and vitality.

Labeled with a medically defined chronic disease is a guarantee by the Medical Matrix that recovery will not occur. You cannot arrive at a health destination by following Medicine’s Pathway of drugs, potions and pills that it admits will not bring you to a state of health and vitality. It is simply the wrong direction to travel in. It makes no sense to take treatments from any Medical Matrix Practitioner whether Conventional, Alternative or Functional Medical Practitioner, who defines your “condition” as a chronic, lifelong, affliction. It is largely due to people’s fear of authority and not knowing where else to turn that they pursue such a futile approach to their “chronic disease” conditions.

Many “chronically” ill individuals go from one form of Medicine to another e.g. from Conventional Medicine to Functional, Alternative or Naturopathic Medicine thinking these are fundamentally different. A Medical Approach, is a Medical Approach and entails symptom suppression rather than the important process of causal identification followed by providing the right conditions to allow health to flourish. Going from dweedle dum to dweedle dee does not change the outcome.

A Medical Approach entails the illusive process of “Medical Diagnosis” based upon naming symptoms rather than the causes of a patient’s problems. To diagnose a patient with Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gastric Reflux, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Psoriasis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Restless Leg Syndrome, Candida, Fibromyalgia and literally hundreds of other “diagnoses” is but to name symptoms followed by the routine application of pills and potions aimed suppressing those symptoms.

A Bio-Hygienic Approach™, focused on identifying and addressing causes and creating the right conditions for health to evolve, requires hard work and the will to get well. The rewards? A reliable pathway to good health, a high state of vitality and enjoyment of life.

Taking a Conventional Medical, Alternative Medical or Functional Medical approach to chronic illness is the single greatest reason but not the only reason why patients with “chronic disease” conditions do not recover their health.

Part II of this series will examine additional important reasons why chronically ill patients fail to recover their health.
