Peace Or Pieces And Problem Solving
A physician is a problem solver. If you wish to be the friend of that physician, that's nice, but the way it works in the United States is physicians are here to reduce your problems. For all the things that are going correct in your life, I congratulate you, but now let's address the problems. That doesn't make me negative, but it does make me focus on the negative things in your life.
In truth, I am nothing more than the message from your biochemistry-body to your brain. That is, I tell you what the signs, symptoms and problems of your body means so that your brain can understand it and respond to it.
If you would like your body going to peace, instead of to pieces, then the advice-recommendations that I offer you, regardless of their seeming friendliness or lack thereof, are not subject to debate or emotion. As I already said, this is a discussion of mathematics, numbers, physics, biochemistry, Truth! You can do what you wish, but the facts are the facts.
Although physicians actually know so little about the causes of disease, and although we practice what seems sophisticated treatments with our medicines and surgery, none-the-less, the most elegant of physicians practice Preventive Medicine, which is no more than what I have said above: It is understanding how your body works, and learning what to do to avoid current and future bad messages such as high blood pressure-diabetes-cancer-gallstones-diverticulitis-excess gas-headaches-arthritis-back pain-depression-stress, etc.
The rules are quite simple and I am sure from other handouts I have written, you and I both know what they are. Let us begin as partners, let me function as your translator-guide to lead you away from your problem towards the freedom of health and peace in your body.
