Do you treat the symptoms or the cause of the problem?

I’ve come across this quite often where some health problem is treated by addressing the symptom instead of finding out why that symptom exists and treating that.  How many medical doctors think that they are naturopaths by addressing sleep with tart cherry instead of a drugs.  But they are still treating the symptoms.  Finding out why the person can’t sleep and treating that would be a nutritional handling of the problem.

Here is a video done by Dr. Eric Berg on What is the Cause of Fatigue?   He goes over this exact point.

Reverse Tooth Decay?

What?  Reverse Tooth Decay?   I was surprised when I read this title as I’ve been told my whole life that once a tooth is decayed the dentist will try and clean it out with his drill and fill it.  And thereby hopefully somehow saving the tooth. And, of course, if it is too far gone, the inevitable words, it will have to be pulled.

I myself have had too many teeth pulled and so was interested in finding out what this was about.   I was surprised to find out that this research was done in 1922 yet I’ve never heard anything about it. Or maybe I wasn’t really surprised that the research was  never followed up on.  It is amazing the research you can find not acted upon if you search for it.

Here is the article, I very much want to share it and will be doing follow up research myself

Premature Gray Hair? How does that work?

I noticed when I was in my mid 20s that some people got grey earlier than others and some were really prematurely grey.

I started asking these females and males about whether they had dyed their hair when they were younger?  It was an observation that a lot of people had dyed their hair and gotten grey prematurely and the answer was always yes.

Well I found this article – interestingly it validated my observations.

Do you use Artificial Sweeteners? Are they Healthy Replacements for Sugar?

A lot of people use artificial sweeteners because they have heard that sugar is bad for them but love things sweet.   Are they doing the right thing?

Artificial sweeteners have their own problems.   Here is a list of them with links to articles on their relationship to your health

Sugar Substitutes

Is there anything you can take to sweeten up you coffee or use in your baking.   It appears that Stevia is the best option.  Stevia is a herb that used in very small amounts make a great sweetener.  It comes in packets, or drops and works well.

Here is the definition:

Stevia: Made from the leaves of a Paraguayan herb, and usually found in powder form, it is 300 times sweeter than sugar. A little goes a very long way (obviously). It’s non-caloric, which is generally considered a plus.

Trace Minerals, why they are important?

I’ve been doing study on weight loss and the body’s ability to restore and repair itself. Did you know what really creates tooth decay the de-mineralization of the teeth.   This was from a study in 1922.

Trace minerals comes up again and again as the soil is so depleted and the body needs  them.  So here is an article on Trace Minerals and a video by Dr. Eric Berg on Trace Minerals   Worth the time to find out what your body needs.

What is the cause of your physical problem?

The words “genetic” or “idopathic”, an unknown cause, is often used by medical doctor when they are trying and failing

to locate the reason a person is sick.  I get the idea that it is just something that happens and we are all to live in fear and hope it doesn’t happen to us.  The best I hear is that something is linked to the “disease” being talked about, nothing concrete, just perhaps something might have something to do with it.
