SYMPTOM DRIVEN THERAPY VS. REMOVING THE CAUSE: WIDENING THE PERSPECTIVE OF MODERN MEDICINE
Dieter M. Meier*
Background: Within the past century, modern medicine has evolved to a high-tech industry, consisting of complex standards of care. The often-expressed criticism that medical doctors only treat symptoms without searching for the root cause seems to be gaining traction in recent years. This article examines the origin of symptoms and the results of over 1000 patients with a wide variety of diagnoses that were treated holistically as opposed to an allopathic approach. Methods: Over 1000 patients with a wide variety of diagnosis were examined with a spinal X-ray and a scan of the autonomic nervous system. The structural changes of spinal biomechanics were correlated to the patients´ symptoms. Using this as a baseline, spinal manipulations were performed according to the spinal structural changes to correct biomechanics and balance the autonomic nervous system. Results: In 100% of the patients, the structural misalignments in the spine were located at the vertebral segment of the origin of the nerve root that innervated the location of symptoms. In 100% of the patients the symptoms were reduced or disappeared if the structural changes could be reversed, resulting in an improvement of autonomic nervous system function. Conclusions: The results of this study strongly suggest that misalignments of the spine and, accordingly, change of autonomic function, are, at least in part, responsible for the rise of symptoms in all chronic diseases. Understanding the root causes and removing them to stimulate self-healing uses functional physiology and demonstrates the importance of translational medicine in the treatment of chronic disease.[Full Text Article]
