Update: I managed to send this post to archives. I apologize. That's what happens when I scientist is given the controls of technology. So, here it is republished as this is part 1 of a 4-part series.
Arguably the biggest obstacle we have to overcome to afford you a healthy longevity is your traditional doctor. Since 1980, with the advent of the first HMO and the FDA allowing pharmaceutical companies participate in medical school education, your regular doctors has unlearned what health really is. Instead, they manage symptoms with a prescription.
Since this is their de facto response to your condition, they have lost or unlearned both the art and science of medicine.
We posit that health isn't that complicated yet congress just stated that healthcare is so complicated that it's nearly impossible to manage or improve. Let me explain how we completely disagree:
Traditional medicine: 69,000 ICD-10 diagnostic codes. Try counting to 69,000! How can anyone keep track of these and be fluent in the system. (And each code probably has a drug)
Our system: 4 mechanisms drive 95% of chronic diseases and chronic diseases account for 90% of our misery per the CDC.
Poor repair and recovery
Gut dysbiosis and sensitivities
Thrive vs survive
Stealth intracellular infections.
In a future blog I will go over each of these, what causes them, how to measure where you are on the continuums of each, and solutions you can readily implement.
How not to die young - part 1. Please watch this video. All 4 parts, with this being part 1, discuss repair and recovery with focus on how important cholesterol is to your cellular health.
