Our Beliefs Concerning
Alternative and Conventional Medicine:
Over the years we have seen monumental changes in the field of medicine. Many of these changes have been good, and some have been awesome, such as the technical advances involved in CT scans, PET scans, MRI's and the like. Most of these marvelous advances have been in the diagnostic areas.
Of course, credit must be given also for many of the miraculous surgical procedures that have been developed in recent years in this country, along with advanced emergency procedures.
While all of these laudable goals have been achieved and continue to advance at a dizzying pace,it is our belief that there are other areas of medicine which lag far behind as to real progress, namely the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases, especially cancer.
Conventional medicine aims at destroying the disease in your body. Unfortunately, this approach comes at a price. In addition to attacking the disease mechanism, we believe this approach often results in sacrificing your health, oftentimes causing more harm than help.
This glaring discrepancy has not been lost on many of the patients afflicted with these disorders, since visits to alternative practitioners now account for nearly 50% of all patient visits to health care providers.
Cancer research, with some notable recent exceptions, has continued its research in the same basic direction for the last half century or more, seeking that elusive "magic bullet" through development of ever more toxic synthetic chemicals. It is our belief that the lack of progress in cancer treatment in this country persists precisely because of the absolute dominance of this focus on cancer research and therapy, and the deliberate exclusion of all other approaches to this disease.
At Reno Integrative Medical Center, our philosophy is to embrace many different treatment modalities, offering the best of both traditional and alternative approaches to health care.
Your body is like a car
At Reno Integrative Medical Center we are dedicated to finding the source of our patient’s chronic conditions. We are constantly researching to uncover “out of the box” discoveries that conventional medicine does not recognize due to reasons we remain suspicious of.
It is every person’s right to seek care for their own body. When those rights are limited by insurance companies that would rather pay thousands of dollars for Chemo and radiation as the ONLY treatment for Cancer, for example, one needs to take notice.
If we could just get the chance to treat most of our patients BEFORE they go through months of conventional treatments, there would be far less suffering and far better statistical results.
The body is a bio-chemical machine that runs just like any other machine. When your car’s engine light goes on, does it make sense to dis-connect the warning light so you can continue to drive without it’s distraction? Most of us would answer that question with a logical “NO”. The same logic should be used when addressing warning signs from your body. Most prescription drugs do nothing but dis-connect the warning light.
Something to think about!
Maybe the up-side of this economy is people will learn to get along with fewer prescription medicines and discover they are still “Alive”. In fact, not only still alive, but they might discover they aren’t experiencing as many of those nasty side-effects anymore.
TRUST your body’s wisdom. It is designed to always flow towards “Homeo-stasis”, which is a fancy word for BALANCE.
