My Story (Why I came up with this program)

As a little boy in the 70’s,  my grandparents as were my parents (both deceased) were greatly influenced by the Physicians of their time.   As you may  have already experienced,  doctors treat symptoms  rather than the underlying cause of the disease or ailment…hence the reason  for so many of those orange medicine  bottles I found in both my parents, Grand Parents and now my in-laws Kitchen Cabinet (because there is not enough room in the bathrooms medicine chest).    Lets face a doctor without patients will  eventually go out of business.  Are certain medications useful, yes…. when pre-existing genetic conditions cannot be treated, but for the most part conditions can be treated with a Functional Medicine approach which takes into consideration holistic (Whole person) approaches for treating the individual. 



 Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:



·         Biochemical individuality describes the importance of individual variations in metabolic function that derive from genetic and environmental differences among individuals.



·         Patient-centered medicine emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care," following Sir William Osler’s admonition that "It is more important to know what patient has the disease than to know what disease the patient has."



·         Dynamic balance of internal and external factors.



·         Web-like interconnections of physiological factors – an abundance of research now supports the view that the human body functions as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems, rather than individual systems functioning autonomously and without effect on each other. For example, we now know that immunological dysfunctions can promote cardiovascular disease, that dietary imbalances can cause hormonal disturbances, and that environmental exposures can precipitate neurologic syndromes such as Parkinson’s disease.



·         Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease.



·         Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span.



 



After a two year painful struggle with Heart Disease, which consisted  (2) triple and (1) quadruple Bypass operation,  my mother Naomi Wesen  went home to be with God ….she was only 47.   I didn’t realize it at the time,  but my mother’s death was truly a blessing because it left me with a question mark of my short existence on this planet and the unknown existence in the afterlife.   



I accepted the invitation  to grow and develop my relationship with Jesus Christ and through this relationship build and develop more meaningful relationships within my friends, family  and community,  and Catholic Church which is the  growing Body of Christ.   My studies, perspectives  and experiences  led me to realization that when we come into alignment with Gods greater purpose for our lives we soon realize that are  Great and Awesome creator and father  truly made provisions for everything we could possibly  need to enjoy a long and fruitful life on earth and more importantly into eternity. 



Our ancestors, depending upon what region of the world they lived in, flourished on a variety of diets mostly consisting of  fruits, vegetables, legumes, healthy beef and fish.  The average American diet contains little food that resembles are ancestral origins. Food that has been pounded, pulverized, over-cooked and over-processed could certainly be classified as dead. Dead food has no resemblance to the original food source and almost exclusively comes in a synthetically derived form—always with an over-abundance of starch, sugar and fat, designed only to appeal to our senses of smell and taste. Unfortunately a large portion of our oceans have been contaminated with chemicals such as mercury making the consumption of certain fish more than twice a week dangerous.  Chemicals poisons and toxins are continually  dumped into ground water systems affecting both livestock animals and humans.  Cattle and other beef products are  injected with hormones and antibiotics which is consumed by humans when we consume  beef or drink the milk  we purchase at our local supermarkets. .   



Estimates are as high as $10 billion spent on advertising all types of food and beverages to America’s children and youth. According to the Federal Trade Commission report, "Marketing Food to Children and Adolescents: A Review of Industry Expenditures, Activities, and Self-Regulation," 44 major food and beverage marketers spent $1.6 billion to promote their products to children under 12 and adolescents ages 12 to 17 in the United States in 200In "Food for Thought: Television Food Advertising to Children in the United States," the Kaiser Family Foundation reported that children and adolescents see up to 6,100 televised food advertisements a year. Approximately a third of the ads are for candy and snacks, a fourth are for cereal, and a tenth are for fast food.   Only 5% are for healthy foods/beverages such as dairy products and fruit juice. None are for fruits and vegetables. 



In truth what we have is  multibillion marketing scheme with one objective…. Cause us and our children to rendor unhealthy food choices !!  To make matters worse this trend eventually leads to early death.   Reliance on high-energy, processed foods is the root cause of the American epidemic of obesity that has evolved over the past fifty years. Excessive body fat is associated with increased risk of heart disease, increased wear and tear on joints and ligaments, increased risk of certain types of cancer and increased risk of chronic disease in general. Often “central” obesity is accompanied by an alarming collection of signs and symptoms including elevated fasting blood glucose, hypertension, decreased HDL cholesterol and increased blood triglycerides. This condition, referred to as insulin resistance syndrome, metabolic syndrome or syndrome X, now affects somewhere between 25% and 50% of the population.

Stay tuned as I will be sharing my story on how I am currently working with other to build and develop a more optimal wellness plan based on functional medicine practices!!
