Ask Dr. Z - Functional Medicine-Medicine of the Future

Ask Dr. Z - Functional Medicine-Medicine of the Future: "Allopathic Medicine
Over the past decades traditional western allopathic medicine has come up with extraordinary number of pharmaceutical drugs in order to fight an extraordinary number of diseases. It seemed in the past, and it still appears that way today, that if we only could come up with the right chemical compound we could eventually conquer and eliminate any disease under the sun. This quest for the 'Silver Bullet' continues.

Chronic Illness
Somehow, we seem to have missed the mark. With the amount of medication consumed in the US one would assume that we are the healthiest people on the planet. However, we have more chronic diseases than ever.

Even though our life span has been increased, our quality of life has not. Healthy aging eludes many of us. Diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergies, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, depression abound.

With the advent of antibiotics we were convinced that we finally had won our battle against the bacteria. Initially it seemed that way. Now we realize that by administering antibiotics freely and generously we have created 'superbugs' that are antibiotic-resistant. Other unfortunate side effects of antibiotic therapy have emerged: immune system suppression and destruction of the normal, 'friendly' bacterial flora in our intestines, which is essential for our well-being.
As a consequence, we attempt to create ever more powerful and toxic drugs, that are quite dangerous for human use. "
