Why do doctors just treat symptoms? Why don’t doctors CURE disease?
These are two questions that I had to ponder during my quest to heal myself of over 35 diagnosed diseases and 100 symptoms after doctors did NOTHING to CURE my disease. I asked doctors over and over again what was causing my diseases, but no doctor could give me a straight-shooting answer. All I heard was a definition of my problem, which came in the form of a diagnosis, and then I was told that some body part, age, or genetics was to blame for the action. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that blaming some body part for failure was of NO consequence—Why did the body part fail? THAT is the question! After all, when body parts fail, they are a direct part of us. That means that when something goes wrong on the inside of our body and we begin to suffer with disease, we are responsible for our own suffering. When we choose to go against order, we create disorder.
Pathogenesis is the manner in which a disease originates. The human body is a ordered system. Doctors depend on its order to practice medicine. Without order, surgery would not be effective. The human body operates in an ordered fashion. All of the systems within the body, such as the circulatory, endocrine, and immune systems, operate in an orderly process. Because of this, there must be a sequential operation that causes disease to manifest. But medical science is all about “treating” the symptom, not curing the disease.
I know some will take offense at this and immediately say that their doctor or some drug cured their disease. But what about the hundreds of millions who suffer with heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma, insomnia, depression, etc.? No doctor is curing their disease! What about the millions of people who suffer through debilitating cancer treatments, chemo and radiation, only to find themselves stricken with cancer once again? And what about all those who died as a direct result of receiving toxic cancer treatments? How is this considered a cure? It’s not…
I suffered with over 35 diseases and NONE of them were cured—not one—until I found the TRUE CAUSE, or starting point, of my disease, eliminated it, and then true healing began. All doctors wanted to do was to treat my symptoms with drugs, which were prescribed to cover-up the truth, or they wanted to perform surgery when the drugs didn’t work. After all, that’s what doctors are trained to do. To see a partial list of the many diseases that I suffered, click here. Eventually, doctors wanted to pin yet another diagnosis to my chest—multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease were kicked around.
For disease to originate, something is being done to the body that causes the disorder to begin. Disorder does not arrive out of nothingness—it can’t. For disorder to occur, order must have been present at some point in time. You can read more about this in my new book, WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate.
Did you know that your body communicates with symptoms? Each and every symptom that you suffer is a message from your body. Its trying to tell you something! Every time you do something wrong, in other words when you go against your ordered design, your body immediately goes into action trying to undo what has been done. It tries to right the wrong. And when initial symptoms are ignored or covered up with drugs, the next order of business is for the body to fall into a state of disease. Millions of Americans are suffering with disease because they are ignoring themselves!
Modern medicine goes about blaming body parts for failing, but what it fails to disclose is that when body parts fail—we are responsible. Some inappropriate thing done to the body results in disorder.
What are some of the disorder-causing actions that result in disease? TOXINS—toxins cause disease. When toxins are put into the body, they cause disorder. Why? TOXINS are POISON. They cause injury or death. Poison kills by rapid action even in small quantities. But here’s something to know—toxins don’t always cause immediate death to the whole body, the person. Poison may cause death to the cell. From a cellular perspective, every organ in our body consists of cells. That means that the death or injury, which occurs from consuming TOXINS, begins at the cell level and works its way up.
So, how is the body exposed to deadly toxins? Junk food, drugs, and everyday products are filled with them! Every time you eat junk food and drink artificially-flavored beverages, they are filled with toxic chemicals. Every time you take drugs, they are filled with toxic synthetic chemicals. Every time you use everyday household cleaning products and personal hygiene products, they are filled with poisonous chemicals. Is it any wonder that so many people are so sick and diseased?
I cured myself, without doctors, of over 35 diagnosed diseases and 100 symptoms. EVERY symptom and disease went away after I changed my lifestyle and eating habits. I hope you will read my new book.
Inflammation is the key to understanding disease. Inflammation is an attention-getter! Inflammation is the body’s defense mechanism to ward off poison. Your body communicates that there is a problem with inflammation. The human body responds to any toxic substance by producing inflammation.

Inflammation is the key to understanding disease. Inflammation is an attention-getter! Inflammation is the body’s defense mechanism to ward off poison. Your body communicates that there is a problem with inflammation.
The human body responds to any toxic substance by producing inflammation. Many toxins are found in the processed foods that you eat and the every-day products that you use. After ingesting poison, the body uses five fundamental methods called the Five Cardinal Signs of Inflammation to get your attention—redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function. These can be loosely defined as:
- REDNESS = STOP what you’re doing!
- HEAT = If you don’t STOP, you will get burned!
- SWELLING = Look, I’m fattening up to get your attention!
- PAIN = Maybe a little pain will get you to notice!
- LOSS OF FUNCTION = OK, if you can’t use it, maybe this will work…
The problem is—most people ignore the signs. Why? Man has created a crafty way to cover up the truth. Man’s answer to pain comes in the form of a tiny pill. Man’s antidote to disease is to drug himself to no avail. Keep in mind that an antidote is a medicine given to counteract a toxin, a poison. This means that some toxin is responsible for the symptom that caused the disease.
When pills don’t work, doctors get busy performing surgery to either take out what is bad or to replace what is faulty with a new body part. That is what doctors are trained to do, isn’t it? To make matters worse, doctors often label your dysfunction as a psychological problem when conventional treatments don’t work. This opens up the floodgates to all sorts of psychotherapeutic medications and behavioral therapies. But do drugs and surgery really circumvent the problem? Rampant ill health and obesity epidemics say otherwise. America’s health crisis proves that Man’s ways are not working.
You’ve tried to lose weight…
It’s hard, right? And even if you do, you end up gaining back every single pound that you lost—PLUS! Why is this?
You’re sick, tired and depressed… You’re filled with disease… Your child has been labeled with a learning disability or some other serious psychological condition…
You’ve been to the doctor—over and over again. You’re taking all the latest designer drugs. Medical tests often return “inconclusive” or “within normal limits.” Or maybe you’ve been diagnosed. BUT, you’re still taking drugs and you’re still sick, tired and depressed. Your body is in pain. You’re still overweight. Dysfunction has overtaken your life. Your child is suffering. All of those drugs and surgeries have not abated the problem one little bit.
Or worse, perhaps your body has succumbed and is now filled with disease. Asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, insomnia, obesity, learning disabilities, and untold others—they’re all out of control. Perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with a few diseases, but has the diagnosis done anything to heal your body of the disorder?
- 65% of all Americans are overweight—Why?
- 24 million people in the U.S. have diabetes—Why?
- 38.4 million people have asthma—Why?
- Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America—Why?
- One out of every 3 persons develops at least one type of cancer—Why?
The fact is—the answer is being overlooked. For decades, science has been side-stepping pathogenesis—the true starting point of disease. During my search for good health and healing, I discovered that if you remove the source of a disorder, the body has the remarkable ability to heal.

I read an interview that was done with a doctor who has written a book about the asthma epidemic.

I read an interview that was done with a doctor who has written a book about the asthma epidemic. Here’s the link to the story: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-05-02/health/ct-x-0502-expert-apaliski-20120502_1_asthma-epidemic-asthma-rate-asthma-cases
It is reported that roughly 34 million Americans suffer with the affliction. Asthma rates have jumped drastically since the 1980s, but researchers are still scratching their collective heads as to WHY.
Asthma is defined as a a respiratory condition of the lungs. It is marked by spasms in the bronchi, which causes difficulty in breathing. Notice that when a person is diagnosed with asthma, the diagnosis is nothing more than a definition of a problem. That’s all a diagnosis is—a definition. A diagnosis has nothing to do with a cure. But also notice that the definition of asthma, the diagnosis, does not prove pathogenesis—the true starting point of disease.
During the interview, the doctor said that while there are many theories for the condition, no one really knows what causes asthma. His recommendation, as an allergy and asthma expert, for combatting asthma attacks is to have a plan in place to control the symptoms. His plan includes taking drugs and avoiding triggers. He also noted that we [I'm assuming he meant—doctors] have the “best medication and the best understanding” of the disease.
What’s wrong with this picture? Approximately 34 MILLION Americans suffer with symptoms of asthma. About 4000 people die each year from asthma-related symptoms. Having the so-called “best medication and best understanding of the disease” has done absolutely NOTHING to CURE asthma—nothing! In fact, incidents of asthma are rising—drastically.
But there is a further definition of asthma that should be noted—it usually results from an allergic reaction or other form of hypersensitivity. This is science’s attempt to state pathogenesis, without actually doing so.
The doctor in the interview noted that people suffering with asthma should avoid triggers. He discussed perfumes and colognes, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as being triggers for asthma attacks. Note that these “triggers” are chemical compounds. But also note that drugs, including those used to cover-up asthma symptoms, are also chemical compounds.
In my new book, WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate, I describe how asthma medications that contain sulfates (albuterol sulfate, salbutamol sulfate, and terbutaline sulfate), which most do, can actually cause breathing difficulties and swelling in the throat. In other words, the drugs that are used to treat asthma can be the precipitator for it!
The human body reacts to poisonous compounded chemicals by initiating the inflammatory response, otherwise known as an allergic reaction. If the body is continually exposed to toxic chemicals, it can become hypersensitive to them.
However, there are other toxic chemicals that can also be responsible for causing asthma that are seldom contemplated by researchers—toxic food additives found in processed foods and drinks.
Back in the early 1990s, my son was diagnosed with asthma. When I changed our diets and lifestyle habits to include nothing but whole foods void of synthetic chemical food additives, his asthma completely went away. If you’d like to read more about his story and my experience with conquering devastating disease, please read my new book WARNINGS of Disease.
