Today's Medical Approach

We have new medical discoveries and more medical practitioners each year. And yet, in the face of all these medical advances and innovations, no one can deny that we also have more disease and suffering than ever before. Why is this so?

Very simple. Can you just imagine prescribing a drug or treatment to “cure” someone who is drunk? But how can we “cure” drunkenness if the person continues to drink? How can we cure without even going to the root cause of the problem? That is the drunkard’s drinking habit?

This is how medical approach health and disease today. Medical practitioners will normally ignore the basic causes of problems but instead resort to remedy steps like surgery and treatments that often run into thousands of dollars when the problems can be simply and inexpensively solved by a change in lifestyles and diet patterns!

We must understand that unless we stop the cause of the illness, the problem will always come back, in a more serious form each time. If we mirror upon medical approach, most doctors seldom find out and advise about lifestyles and practices which may cause the problems. What they do is merely prescribe drugs and treatments to “cure” your symptoms.

Patric Holford, Director of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London which is at the forefront of research and education in this field, makes this very clear:

“Tomorrow’s medicine will not be about using nutrients instead of drugs. It will be about looking through a new pair of glasses which reveal the true causes of disease. In most cases these lie in faulty nutrition, pollution, stress, negativity, addiction and lack of exercise – the greatest cause of all being ignorance. The original meaning of the word “doctor” is “teacher or learned man”, and that is perhaps the most important role a health professional can perform”.

Disease as a word, very simply means dis-ease, or not at ease, uncomfortable. Would you be able to agree if I tell that disease is started by your own body? Yes! Disease is started by our own body to eliminate toxic. Just let me share one example with you.

I believe most of us experienced food poisoning before. We've unknowingly taken a poison into our stomach and experience vomiting and diarrhea as a result. So, we’ll go to the doctor to get medicine to stop the vomiting and diarrhea, right? Once the vomiting and diarrhea stop, we say the medicine “cure” us from food poisoning.

But do you know that the vomiting and diarrhea are actually a defense mechanism that our body uses to protect us? Our body senses the presence of harmful substance, so it started the vomiting and diarrhea process in order to force the toxins out from our body as quickly as it can.

When we take medicine and it successfully stop the vomiting and diarrhea, our body actually becomes worse off than before. As it is retaining the harmful substance supposed to be eliminated through the vomiting and diarrhea, plus the drug that we take in to “cure” the food poisoning! We must understand that diarrhea never happen if there is nothing in our digestive tract that needs to be hurriedly removed.

There is this beautiful word of wisdom by the Ancient Ayurvedic.

“Without proper diet, medicine is of no use.
With proper diet, medicine is of no need.”

So, does medicine really “cure”?

Siew Yin Gark's philosophy has always been that there are no quick fixes to vibrant health and good looks. She believes that health can only be realized by following a natural way of life through proper diet and healthy lifestyles. She strongly believes that beauty and youth are the natural expression of the highest health.
