Imagine a pyramid
At the top of that pyramid are our modern day diseases - things like cancer, Hashimoto’s, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hypothyroidism. And this is where the medical model meets us and gives us pharmaceuticals to decrease these symptoms. However, thats is only part of the solution. If you look at the base of the pyramid - this is where the underlying imbalance lies that creates the disease in the first place. By getting to the root cause we can decrease the imbalance and thus diminish the disease.
