If you don’t know what IKEA is, it is a Swedish-founded Dutch-based multinational group, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories. It has been the world’s largest furniture retailer since 2008. They are famous for their PICTURE ONLY instruction manual.
If we applied the IKEA instruction manual (as a guide) to treating the basic causes of simple diseases, it would look like the following:
By completing pages 1 through 5, in this “IKEA” instruction manual, we see the ENTIRE illness has RESOLVED. This traditional healthcare approach is therefore, credible as an option because it offers an END GAME where the body no longer requires pharmaceutical support. Health has been RESTORED. The body can once again take control maintaining its own internal needs as the body was designed to do.
There is a second “IKEA” style instruction manual provided by our traditional healthcare system that deals with other types of health maladies. This instruction manual has a circular pattern to its design and only has 4 total pages. One might think this makes for a simpler process having one less “picture” page of instructions. In reality, we come to find out this instruction manual doesn’t ever CONCLUDE. Just when you get to page 4 and assume RECOVERY is next, the instruction manual refers the “user” back to Page 2.
Page 5 (displaying a picture of the “healthy patient”) is not part of this instruction manual.
Who would intentionally buy a healthcare product or service containing an instruction manual with NO FINAL PAGE? This type of instruction manual would represent an ENDLESS LOOP without HOPE of EVER RESTORING HEALTH .
So who typically buys healthcare services and products with these endless loop “IKEA” style instruction manuals?
Isn’t this the typical instruction manual provided to patients by their physicians when diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Heart Disease, Irritable Bowel Disease… and the list goes on…
Do you truly believe the only solution to these conditions is NO SOLUTION AT ALL? In other words, NO “PAGE 5” (the HEALTHY PATIENT?) Are we to believe the ENDLESS LOOP instruction manual offers the ONLY viable option for people diagnosed with these types of conditions?
This simply isn’t true. EVERY condition I’ve listed above has been proven REVERSIBLE based on objective blood panel markers. Naturally, the length of time a patient has had their condition as well as their willingness to ACTIVELY comply with various lifestyle interventions greatly influences the end results.
The most important point consumers must be made to understand, however, is that pharmaceutical intervention (with improved lab values) is NOT THE SAME THING as lifestyle intervention (with improved lab values!)
Medications TEMPORARILY chemically FORCE (not fix) the body to alter a state of imbalance. This approach keeps a person in a DISEASED STATE while hoping to minimize the damaging affects these diseases cause. Unfortunately, the medications used commonly cause secondary harmful side effects requiring additional prescriptions. This vicious cycle continues throughout life as more drugs are prescribed and/or increasing quantities become needed as the body continues fighting the affects of these drugs.
LIFESTYLE INTERVENTION, on the other hand, creates a plan of action used to “FEED” the body essential needs in order to FIX imbalances and RESTORE HEALTH and FUNCTION (thus achieving PAGE “5 in the “IKEA” instruction manual.) Part of the solution requires learning to “get out of one’s own way”. This is often achieved through better awareness of personal behavior as well as a better understanding of necessary AND unnecessary pharmaceutical drugs and the long term effects these play in health recovery.
Why live life in an endless loop taking lifelong pharmaceuticals if better options exist? Do you realize the lifelong pharmaceutical plan of action is designed AT BEST to sustain “smaller fires” (also known as disease maintenance through lifetime renewable prescriptions.) It NEVER attempts to restore a natural state of GOOD HEALTH to the body! Wouldn’t you rather have your “IKEA” healthcare instruction manual have a “Page 5” showing YOU, the patient, overcoming diseases and achieving RESTORED HEALTH? All it may require is breaking the endless loop by “changing the pictures” on pages 3 and 4 with LIFESTYLE INTERVENTION.
WHY ARE YOU CHOOSING TO LIVE LIFE IN AN ENDLESS LOOP OF DOCTOR OFFICE VISITS AND PRESCRIPTION REFILLS?
When will YOU finally turn to “common sense” and ask yourself, “WHEN IT COMES TO CHRONIC DISEASES, why am I spending my hard earned money on doctors if they’re not trying to FIX ME?”
