Conventional medicine is great for treating acute issues, but it can rarely cure chronic diseases. Instead, conventional medicine doctors attempt to simply control the patient’s symptoms.
However, there is one, and only one, chronic disease that conventional medical treatment works well for. That disease is Type 1 diabetes.
What that means is receiving a diagnosis of a chronic disease other than Type 1 diabetes from a conventional medical doctor often means a lifetime of pain and prescriptions – prescriptions that cause other, sometimes serious or life-threatening, problems. It may also mean a shortened life.
However, as holistic medical doctors, we address the question, “Can chronic diseases be cured?” differently.
Officially, a condition or disease becomes chronic when it persists for 6 months. However, outside of Type 1 diabetes, we believe that if you’re not over 50% better in 3 months you should avoid immediately pursue holistic treatment.
We believe this because we have proven cures for many chronic diseases and safer therapies than prescriptions for all other chronic diseases and conditions.
The most common chronic diseases are hypertension, heart disease, autoimmune diseases and Type 2 diabetes. Other chronic conditions we cure holistically include depression, anxiety and chronic pain while conventional medical approach are abysmal failures.
Hypertension is a problem in at least 45% of Americans.
The success of controlling it with conventional medicine is only 45%. AND over 90% of patients using conventional medicine to manage their high blood pressure have chronic fatigue from the drugs. And 90% of men on hypertensive prescriptions also have erectile dysfunction!
Compare that dismal outlook of the conventional medicine approach to the holistic approach. The healthy, happy success rate in controlling high blood pressure with Holistic medicine is 99%!
Incidentally, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF HYPERTENSION!
Six types of prescription drugs linked to high blood pressure. U.S. researchers presented these shocking findings about high blood pressure at the American College of Cardiology’s annual conference in May 2021. For the analysis, they looked at data on more than 27,000 adults who are part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
The prescription drugs KNOWN TO CAUSE high blood pressure that were taken by people in the analysis included:
- ALL ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS (taken by 16% of Americans)
- NON-STEROIDALS (NSAIDS) that include ibuprofen and naproxen taken by 15% of Americans
- ORAL STEROIDS
- Certain oral contraceptives
- Popular decongestants
Furthermore, the researchers estimated that if half the Americans with high blood pressure stopped taking JUST ONE of these culprit medications, up to 2.2 million people could get their blood pressure completely under control.
Antidepressants pose a particular problem as 1 in 6 U.S. adults take them.
This includes prescription antidepressant drugs—which includes monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tricyclic drugs, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which topped the list of offenders, with 9 percent of study participants with high blood pressure taking them.
And beyond the parameters of this study, one in six adults in the U.S. take a prescription antidepressant.
Of course, as we often report, antidepressant drugs like SSRIs just don’t work for most people. Worse yet, they can cause great harm because they don’t address the root causes of depression. Plus, they cause a whole host of terrible side effects, including increased suicide. So, if they don’t kill you quickly, they may do it slowly.
However, with a Holistic approach more than 85% of our patients successfully get off depression meds and cure their depression.
Anxiety is another chronic disease that Holistic medicine can cure.
Anti-anxiety medications can actually increase the symptoms of your anxiety disorder, create many other personality changes as well as INCREASE agitation. Other side effects of these drugs include loss of libido, adverse alteration of memory, and decrease the ability to concentrate. Anti-anxiety meds cause far more problems that they virtually never help.
Holistic medicine can cure chronic pain.
In chronic pain, conventional medicine is particularly bad!
Shealy created Holistic medicine to treat chronic pain successfully and safely, with the advent of TENS, spinal cord stimulation, biofeedback and Autogenic Training. Then came Biogenics®, Cranial Electrical Stimulation, and Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF®.
High cholesterol can raise your risk of heart attack, yet commonly prescribed statins can cause severe brain damage.
Perhaps at the top of the list of BAD, DANGEROUS drugs commonly prescribed to treat a chronic condition is statins. Conventional medical doctors prescribe statins for high cholesterol because this condition can raise the risk of heart attack.
However, the enormous downsides of statins are that they not only cause muscle pain but ultimately cause severe brain damage and memory loss.
Type 2 diabetes can be cured holistically.
Among the worst of conventional medicine drugs is metformin for type 2 diabetes.
According to drugs.com, common side effects of metformin include: lactic acidosis, diarrhea, nausea, nausea and vomiting, vomiting, and flatulence, asthenia, and decreased vitamin b12 serum concentrate. Death, hypothermia, hypotension, and resistant arrhythmias have been reported due to metformin-associated lactic acidosis. Onset may be subtle and include nonspecific symptoms such as malaise, myalgia, respiratory distress, somnolence, and abdominal distress; laboratory abnormalities include low pH, increased anion gap and elevated blood lactate. The risk of lactic acidosis increases with renal or hepatic impairment, aged 65 years or older, having a radiological study with contrast, surgery, or other procedures, hypoxic states, and excessive alcohol intake. If lactic acidosis is suspected, metformin hydrochloride should be discontinued, supportive measures started in a hospital setting. Prompt hemodialysis is recommended.
The side effects listed above are just the top of the iceberg.
Other side effects of metformin are:
- abdominal or stomach discomfort
- cough or hoarseness
- decreased appetite
- fast or slow breathing
- fever or chills
- general feeling of discomfort
- lower back or side pain
- muscle pain or cramping
- painful or difficult urination
- blurred vision
- chest discomfort
- cold sweats
- cool, pale skin
- difficult or labored breathing

- restless sleep
- unusual sleepiness
- acid or sour stomach
- excess air or gas in the stomach or intestines
- full feeling
- loss of appetite
- metallic taste in the mouth
- passing of gas
- stomach ache

- abnormal stools
- bad, unusual, or unpleasant (after) taste

As with most drugs sold by the PharmacoMafia, metformin’s myriad side effects as brushed aside despite the real problems they can cause patients.
Fortunately, there is an alternative that can cure this chronic disease. Holistic management of type 2 diabetes uses nutrition with safe nutrients including chromium, gymnema, berberine and fenugreek, along with stress management with Biogenics®.
The holistic approach to all chronic diseases and conditions is far superior to the conventional.
The holistic approach to all chronic pain, depression, anxiety and autoimmune diseases is far superior! The bottom essential line is HOLISTIC MEDICINE is FAR superior to conventional medicine in ALL chronic diseases.
