If it's not being diagnosed correctly, it is impossible to target treat.
You Will Feel Like You Are Trying A Little Of Everything Yet Nothing Is Really Working.
Occasionally a bit relief and then flare up back to square one.
In this TEDMED talk from last year's conference, the focus is on how we too often misdiagnose or simply do not use the testing tools needed to determine the underlying biochemical cause of the symptoms - and then we write them off as "there's nothing wrong with you" aka it's all in your head.
This Has Got To Be One Of The Most Frustrating Messages To Be Told As A Patient.
Just because we can't diagnose it, or know how, health care providers too often write the symptoms experienced off with "nothing wrong".
This is the reason why I have been committed to undergo training the last couple years in testing tools needed to evaluate the root cause of various symptoms and now am able to add a 4th key testing tool for those struggling with chronic illness: pesticide and chemical exposure testing.
This testing tool is part of "preventative medicine". Usually it has been available partly as several independent tests to get the full range of chemical exposure testing. Until this test tool was recently developed, which is clinically proven to be the most accurate method to actually get a full picture of possible chemicals disrupting our state of health.
I am very excited about it.
Especially As The Organic Acid Testing Tool Has Shown To Be Invaluable For Some Of The Really Severe Causes Of Auto Immune Diseases I Have Been Working With.
Often cases where the testing standardly offered in conventional doctor's offices came back almost normal with nothing to diagnose. Nothing to diagnose - expect we're not testing for the core underlying biochemical parameters causing the auto immune issues going on.
When you know what is disrupting your health, THEN you can target treat it.
Check out the 4 core comprehensive biochemical testing tools here.
All 4 clinically proven to be the most accurate in each their target area to diagnose underlying cause.
