The conventional medical approach seeks to treat symptoms in isolation, rather than treating the causes of disease. Conventional doctors offer treatments – drugs, surgeries, etc. – that may solve specific complaints in the short-term, but don’t make you any healthier in the long-term. In the effort to relieve your symptoms, the real causes of your condition are routinely overlooked. Throughout your life, you’ve probably been to several doctors. As a patient, you’ve probably been prescribed medications that treat some of your symptoms, and they’ve probably helped, at least on the surface. Your doctors may have told you that you need to lose weight, or eat healthier, but they don’t tell you how. They don’t give you the resources you need to succeed.
The resources aren’t impossible to provide – they’re just not very profitable, and they require a lot of work. The manufacture and sale of symptom-alleviating drugs is an enormously profitable industry. Helping you to get well – to eat healing foods and really change your life – isn’t especially lucrative. As a result, patients spend fortunes on health care while receiving very little in return. You stay sick, but you’re less uncomfortable. Prescription medications may be necessary for many individuals, but they don’t get to the root of the problem. Drugs are never a substitute for a healthier, cleaner lifestyle!
OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH
Here in our office, we opt for a more holistic approach. A “holistic” approach means treating the whole person, rather than just the physical symptoms of disease. Holistic health is a whole approach to life. As an individual, you are unique. Your food habits, stress levels, and personal problems all contribute to the condition in which you find yourself today. Rather than treating a symptom or a specific illness, holistic therapies focus on and consider the whole person and how every part of their life is affecting the body. Holistic treatments address the causes of illness rather than merely alleviating symptoms in the short-term. At Club Reduce, we believe that when the body is given the resources it needs, it will heal itself naturally. The only way to really get well – and remain well – is to give the body what it needs.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, quality of medical care accounts for only 10% of a person’s overall health. Predisposed, hereditary conditions account for another 18%. Everyday lifestyle conditions – the foods you eat, your activity level, and the toxins you are exposed to –account for 72%! The way that you live and the daily decisions that you make determine your level of health. Though we will serve as a guide though this process, YOU must do the work – changing food habits, lifestyle, or beliefs – to facilitate your own healing. Healing requires a team approach involving you, the Club Reduce doctor and staff, and every person in your life. As a holistic facility, we want to educate you on the principles of proper nutrition so that your success lasts a lifetime. We want to empower you to obtain optimal health, wellness, and balance in your life – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The first step in this process is reforming your relationship with food.
Warning: Don’t stop taking prescription medications without your doctor’s approval! If you are on medication, ask your prescribing doctor to work with you as your health improves on this program. As your body heals, you may find that you need lower doses of many medications.
Your body is designed to heal itself. If you scrape your knee, smash your thumb, or bruise your knuckles, your body will repair the damage. However, if you scrape the same knee every day, you never give your body a chance to heal. This is what it’s like when you bombard your body with processed food and toxic chemicals on a daily basis. Your body needs a rest from the constant assault in order to heal. This resting process is called detoxification. Detoxification gives your body the chance to heal itself safely, naturally, and effectively.
The program we use in our clinic has been in use since 1979 – long before detoxification became a popular concept. When it was first designed, the program was one of the original detoxification programs on the market. Back in 1979, the program was designed by a team of talented physicians, nutritionists, and herbalists who were passionate about holistic health. Over the years, this detoxification program has helped thousands of people in their quest for health and vitality. Through this program, you can take charge of your health and finally get well!
