Symptom Chasing

Today’s healthcare has been based on the premise of “SYMPTOM CHASING” rather than determining the true underlying cause of disease and disorder.  In our book “Your Health First”, we discuss the topic of symptom chasing and how dangerous it is for your overall health and well-being.

All alopathic care is based on the premise that if  you have a symptom, you will be given a medication to treat the symptom.  For example, if you have hypertension, or high blood pressure, the primary alopathic treatment is to give you a medicine that will lower your blood pressure.  And while this method of treatment has been the normal for decades, the success rate for treating diseases has been dismal at best.

Since the doctors are listening to your symptoms and giving  you something to change the symptoms, you begin on a cycle of symptom – medicine, symptom – medicine, and so on…this is the meaning behind “symptom chasing” in regard to health care.

Many people are surprised to find out that this method of treatment has also become the predominant method of treatment for many alternative providers as well.  If you have a symptom, the alternative doctor will treat the symptom with a natural substance or therapy, and when you have a different symptom, you are treated with a new or different substance or therapy, in essence symptom chasing all over again!!!

This is where our clinics are different.  We base our care on a thorough health history questionnaire and a comprehensive blood panel.  This information gives us a baseline of your current health situation and a road map to where your health care goals should be.  Everyone can experience different symptoms, but by basing your care on your specific health needs, you eliminate “symptom chasing” and focus on correction of the underlying conditions.  This is the goal of the Health 1st Wellness Programs that are conducted throughout the Health 1st of the Triad locations.

If you are tired of “symptom chasing” and are looking to find real answers, it’s time to give us a call.
