For years, attention has been focussed on the medical management of disease rather than on proper investigation of its root causes. While the majority of drugs prescribed by doctors may seem to ‘cure’ or provide relief for a disease, most of them only relieve symptoms or pain associated with the disease.
In ‘Getting Healthy Naturally’ by naturopath John Byrne N.D., B.H.Sc., he argues that in order to achieve a successful outcome for any ailment, one first needs to get an accurate diagnosis of the underlying causes or conditions. A central theme is that all major health conditions today share a common underlying trait that an increasing number of health researchers believe to be the ultimate cause – inflammation.
John outlines many ways that inflammation can occur, as well as how to restore your body to health by combating these hidden factors through safe and effective, natural healing methods. “The symptoms of disease are the remedial efforts of the body attempting a cleansing process in an effort to rid itself of accumulated toxins. As such, the power to cure disease resides only within the patient’s body and that innate healing power cannot fully prevail until wrong living habits stop and the fundamental elements of nature in fitting measure, have been set in place.” Properly managed, the disease process is also the road to cure.
