Beyond Disease Care: When Your TREATMENTS Fail to CURE You...the Truth about How to Prevent and Reverse Today's Most Common Chronic Conditions by Walt Stoll, MD and Kathleen M. Diehl, CHt, Foreword by Robert Anderson, MD
Description: Beyond Disease Care is a landmark book that addresses some of the most common and vexing health issues of modern-day society. Far from a boring medical textbook, this comprehensive resource clearly explains the important differences between "acute" and "chronic" health conditions, between "conventional" and "alternative" medicine, as well as the difference between a "treatment" and a "cure." You will come to understand how and why our current "health-care system" is actually a "disease-care system," and how best to safeguard yourself and your loved ones.
Co-authored by experienced physician Walt Stoll, MD and lay person Kathleen M. Diehl, Beyond Disease Care bridges the gap between doctors and patients in a highly engaging and interesting way. If we are to thrive (and survive) the rapid increase in environmental stressors and their resulting toll on our well-being, we must be willing to challenge old "Doctor as God" paradigms and change how we (both individually and collectively) approach health and dis-ease. Now more than ever, we must begin to view our symptoms as messages from the bodymind, be willing to look for the root cause, and approach healing from a holistic perspective.
Once you truly understand of the root cause of your chronic health conditions, you will be empowered with the information necessary to not only have the best chance of reversing (curing) those conditions, but of preventing new ones from developing in the future. It's not about refusing conventional medical treatments altogether, but rather about moving beyond the mindset of simply covering up your symptoms.
Beyond Disease Care begins by laying a foundation with a fascinating account of the historical events that led to a functional medical monopoly in the United States, and moves into a compelling explanation of how our rapidly-changing environment plays a definitive role in the prevalance of chronic disease today. From there, safe and effective alternative treatments are described for some of the most common conditions we are facing today (such as chronic and recurrent allergies, headaches, viral infections, heartburn, adult acne, and more), along with a lifestyle protocol for reversing nearly all chronic dis-ease at its root cause -- the 3-Legged Stool (3LS) of Wellness.
Endorsements: "If you want to take charge of your own health, read this book. The clear explanation of how health works and effective self-help tools will save you time, money, and energy for reversing your chronic health issues and optimizing your energy levels. -- Jan DeCourtney, CMT, co-author of Recapture Your Health
