It all started 14 years ago when I commenced clinical practice, long before iHealth. Formerly at my college, I noticed a slow decline in traditional Naturopathic principles and a move towards prescription based, Allopathic Medicine. i.e.; Observe a symptom singularly and then treat the isolated symptom with a certain remedy. I noticed clinical protocol moving from holistic, multi systemic treatment to basic cause and effect. Don't get me wrong, I am all for trying to get to the bottom of a problem, but what I am talking about is the slow evangelisation of Practitioners to these 'new principles' of Nutritional Medicine, with the express, hidden goal of many companies supplying products to sell more pills, thus making the diagnosis and treatment more complex. Off we went to seminar after seminar with so called, 'evidence based', research presented in such complex dialogue you did not really know what they were talking about.
My peers and I sat there overwhelmed by the long words, complex protocols and the subsequent need to sign up with this 'hot shot', Medical / Nutraceutical company to become legitimate Doctors. If we didn't, we were considered not a part of the 'new age' of functional medicine. I have nothing against some of the Practitioner only medicines, it's just that it is high time we level with one another and realise our Founding Fathers knew a thing or two. Dr. John Christopher, Paul Bragg etc. These men knew how to harness the power of nature and how to capture the essence of natural herbs and plants in Organic form to get people well. The basis for our creed as Practitioners is; "Let food be thy Medicine and let thy medicine be food!"
I lecture around the world to audiences including some Practitioners that have been indoctrinated with strange, new beliefs and pseudo sciences that inevitably lead to little result and breaking the bank of the poor people they prescribe their countless remedies to. Most recently, I was asked to review a prescription given to a friend from another Naturopath. I was shocked! The treatment consisted of nearly 25 pills a day and over $250 a week in keeping the script up. The formulations were good quality and Practitioner Only but the problem was too much and in the wrong combinations and also poor absorption. The human body would simply overload and side effects would result. Have we forgotten what John Wesley taught at Oxford? "Use a duly applied remedy, carefully and prayerfully selected and let that remedy be botanical", (food based). I find it amusing that many of the big companies now brag about how they purify the remedy! Why did it need to be purified? In many cases the original solution / herb was of a low grade material and needed to be treated with heat, chemically extracted or cryogenically exposed. In isolating these nutrients, many of the beneficial compounds are lost. Of course, some nutrients are purified to extract heavy metals like fish oil. I understand that, but why, when so many plants have a superior source of active components already? Sadly, this new Allopathic doctrine has infected Traditional Medicine and many good Practitioners no longer trust their gut, use their inner wisdom or look to the original, powerful Naturopathic principles to heal people.
The answer, a return to nature!
