Integrative medicine supersedes naturopathic medicine and is based on the
- The naturopathic dictums, ‘first do no harm’ (L. primum non nocere) and 'identity and treat the cause’ (L. tolle causam) apply.
- Take a detailed medical history with a view to making a provisionalcausal diagnosis (anamnesis).
- Practice a combined approach using several systems of non-suppressive medicine: classical and modern (complex) homeopathy, nutritional medicine,herbal medicine and clinical ecology, which covers allergy, sensitivity and food intolerance.
- If possible, use a bio regulatory approach (kinesiology or electro acupuncture) to assist with causal diagnosis and treatment selection.
- Explain your approach to your patients and teach your students.
Integrative medicine entails a broadly based understanding of the causes of disease process, an eclectic knowledge of non-suppressive medicine, bio regulatory testing skills, an open-minded approach and familiarity with conventional medicine and the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Common underlying causes of health deterioration
- Heavy metal poisoning (e.g. dental mercury, cadmium from diesel fumes).
- Interference fields (harmful electromagnetic radiation).
- Environmental toxicity (industrial and urban pollution).
- An acidic biological terrain.
- Intestinal dysbiosis (bacterial, fungal and micro parasitical)
- Chronic viral infection (e.g. Epstein Barr virus in glandular fever).
- Chronic bacterial infection (e.g. Borrelia Burgdorferi in Lyme Disease),
- Chronic fungal infection (in systemic candidiasis).
- Chronic microparasite infection in irritable bowel syndrome.
- A compromised immune system.
- Nutritional deficiencies.
Case histories involving a causal approach
A child with autism was found to have mercury poisoning from his mother’s mercury dental fillings that had crossed the mother’s placenta during her pregnancy.
A schoolboy, who had been ill for years, and who had not been helped by conventional medicine, was found with vegatesting to have treatable Lyme disease.
Over twenty years ago, a child, who had been wrongly diagnosed conventionally with coeliac disease, was put on a gluten free diet for life. With vegatesting, she was found to have a treatable intestinal microparasite infection and with appropriate treatment, her symptoms disappeared and she became able to eat an unrestricted diet.
A child, heavily sedated for epilepsy, was found to be exposed to harmful earth radiation at night and was cured simply by relocating his bed to a safe area.
About thirty five years ago, a man, with malignant hypertension (very high blood pressure), had become very ill due to the side effects of conventional treatment. With vegatesting, he was found to have treatable dental mercury poisoning. His blood pressure improved with treatment for dental mercury poisoning. He is currently aged 85 and in reasonable health.
