Disease Model in Alternative and Orthodox Medicine

The current orthodox medicine model of disease is outdated. It looks at disease as "damage" to the human body, which is supposed to be "fixed" or "repaired" the very same way as, for example, a car. But this mechanical approach does not include the thousands of adaptive biological reactions that start immediately after the body's "damage" begins and that accompany the entire healing process up to complete or partial recovery.

What it means is that during all diseases, from the very beginning, immediate recovery processes accompany destructive processes. Unfortunately, drugs and surgery can interfere with the recovery processes, affecting the very gentle physiological equilibrium of the body called homeostasis and thus bring more damage. This is what is called side effects of drug therapy.

The essence of the condition named "disease" is, therefore, far more complicated than the traditional "damage – fix" model. The disease or pathology is just another physiological state of the body, which can progress or regress according to the body's needs.

Current physical, emotional and mental condition of the body heavily influences the beginning and outcome of the disease. As a matter of fact, most people are living with "diseases" bouncing back and forth from physiological "norm". In this case, instead of "treatment of disease" a better term to use would be "regulation of physiological processes", which more precisely exact what's going on in the body. This is the alternative medicine model.

Because drugs suppress natural bodily adaptive physiological reactions, they can effectively block natural self-healing mechanisms of human bodies. Of course, it's much easier to label group of symptoms as a disease the way orthodox medicine does, and prescribe drugs accordingly, but it has nothing in common with the real healing.

The real healing occurs when all physiological processes related to the physical, emotional and mental condition of the body become regulated and start to work in harmony. This usually happens with use of alternative medicine modalities. Sometimes, the balance can be achieved just through diet and lifestyle modifications. Sometimes, we need to use more "heavy weapons" like herbal or homeopathic remedies or supplements, acupuncture, reflexology, Reiki, yoga or any other conventional healing modality. But the result is always impressive – gentle and profound healing, happening naturally, without toxic side effects and further damage to the body.

Thus, the main difference between alternative and orthodox disease model lies not just in a definition of pathology named disease, but also in a completely different approach to healing. Instead of "fixing the body" in orthodox medicine, we are talking about "regulating and balancing the body" in alternative medicine.

It is absolutely evident that "one size fits all" medicine simply does not work anymore. While it perfectly suits the needs of pharmaceutical companies, it does not benefit most patients who are in real need of custom-made individualized treatment programs without side effects. Given the rising ineffectiveness of mainstream medicine, it's not surprising that patients turn to alternative medicine for a cure. Statistics speak for themselves. According to the …

Alternative Medicine Treatment For The Crohn's Disease

If you are reading this, you are looking for the answers about Crohn's disease. You were told that there is no real cause for it; therefore, consequently, there is no cure. The only option you are left with is treatment with the powerful pharmaceutical drugs.

Most likely you are confused. You are afraid of pain, bloody diarrhea, fatigue, possibility of the colon removal, cancer, and side effect of the drugs that you are taking. In the jungle of internet, thousand websites promise and sell miracle cure. The situation with Crohn's disease is extremely complicated. Even medical authorities in this field write "Seventy-five years after Crohn's characterization as a unique entity, we are still in the dark".

Let me share some ideas about causes and possible non-drug treatments for this illness. Everything what I will tell you, is information from statistic and medical literature, practice of the doctors from other countries and my own 40 years of experience with Crohn's disease. Yes, we do not know what the real cause of this disease is, but some facts can bring light to this problem.

All medical statistics show the growth of the autoimmune diseases including Crohn's disease during the last 60 years mostly in the North America, Europe, New Zealand, and much less in Southeast Asia, South America. We cannot blame genes; they cannot change in 60 years. Some scientists consider Crohn's disease as a disease of the rich people and connect Crohn's disease with Westernization.

You were told that Crohn's disease is a hereditary disease, so you did not have a chance to escape from that. The definitive role of genetics is only 15%. I personally believe in heredity of the life style when generation-by-generation people have Cesarean delivery, formula-only feeding, and eating unhealthy foods, drinking alcohol, smoking, having the same vaccination and infections, taking antibiotics, NSAID and living or working in the toxic environment, etc.

No wonder, heredity of the life-style is responsible for many disorders and medical articles and books prove that. Therefore, 85% of harmful environmental factors play the role in the development of autoimmune diseases, which rise for the last 60 years.

You were told that Crohn's disease is autoimmune malady when the immune system acts like crazy by attacking person's own tissue. Normally, immune system is designed to protect the human being from invaders such as harmful microorganisms, and toxic substances.

There are three common disorders of the immune system. The immune system can be weak after viral, bacterial, or parasitic infections, chemotherapy, immunosuppressant drugs, radiation, stress, AIDS, heavy metals toxicity, low adrenals and thyroid, etc. Secondary, the immune system can work extra high. We can see it in many allergic diseases, food and chemical sensitivity, vaccinations, chronic infections, etc. All these factors can trigger in predisposed persons the abnormal immune respond.

Unfortunately, there are no the specific tests for Crohn's disease; therefore it needs to exclude alternative diagnoses, such as intestinal infections and parasites, diarrhea after antibiotics, Clostridium difficile diarrhea, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, exacerbation …
