Sir William Osler, a famous physician in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, is considered the founder of modern medicine and is one of the founders of Johns Hopkins medical school. He famously stated that one of the first duties of the physician is to teach the masses not to take medicine.
A less famous quote of Osler’s was “none,” which was his answer when asked how many heart attacks he saw in his career. Also, lung cancer cases were so rare back then, every single case was published in medical journals.
How could the top two killers of Americans today, heart disease and cancer, each killing around 600,000 Americans a year, go from non-existent to epidemic in 100 years?
It’s really quite simple, it’s because heart “disease” isn’t really a disease, it is a consequence, as are almost 100% of the other “diseases” and symptoms that people come to Veritas Medical for help with.
Modern ailments that we label with a “disease” title are just consequences of inflammation. Inflammation comes from dysfunctional mitochondria, the carburetors of your cells responsible for making energy. Dysfunctional carburetors are almost always the result of years of poor stewardship of our health in one or more of the Veritas 4 Pillars: nutrition, hydration, movement, and peace.
After 10 years of experience with over 20,000 patients, we are convinced that the VAST MAJORITY of people seeking medical care from us do not need to see one of our medical practitioners if they would commit to getting educated on and then implementing the anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle factors that allow your mitochondria to function like they are supposed to!
The most up-to-date medical research makes it clear that modern life (sitting, stressing, poor sleep patterns, processed nutrient-depleted food, dehydration, etc.) leads to poor mitochondrial function, which leads to oxidative stress and inflammation in the cell, which leads to tissues and organs that are dysfunctional, which leads to all the modern “diseases”… high blood sugar, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia pain, weight gain, dysfunctional immune response (i.e. autoimmune disease), brain fog and memory loss, joint pain, heart attacks, and cancer. You can confirm this by doing an internet search with the term “inflammation” and whatever your disease or symptom is.
So, if 95% of cancer, heart attacks, autoimmune diseases and all the other modern western diseases are rooted in diet and lifestyle choices, and medical school isn’t actually teaching doctors about nutrition or the other lifestyle factors that cause disease, why would you want to see a doctor or medical provider who is not trained in the root cause of your problem and can only treat symptoms?
We believe it would be much more beneficial to talk to someone trained in the diet and lifestyle factors that can actually help FIX the problem! So, that is what we are offering you today, an education and support program through our Veritas Wellness Navigators that hopefully will result in the root causes being addressed to such a degree that your symptoms resolve and you never need to see a doctor! Read about one such testimony here.
Dr. Ben has made a free, 5-part video series that takes a deeper dive into all of this, please check it out.
Also, there are over 5 years worth of very informative podcasts that can help educate you on all things Veritas. We recommend starting with the “Most Popular” episodes.
Remember, you’re the cure, not your doctor. Doctors can only treat symptoms, they can’t fix root causes, only you can!
In the event you really need to see a medical practitioner to try and help treat symptoms while you are working on root causes, you can ask your Wellness Navigator for more information on this during one of your phone visits and they will get you scheduled as quickly as possible. But, while you’re waiting, PLEASE take advantage of the Wellness Navigator led Education and Healthy Plan today! We believe it is the best way to steward your time, money, and health. We truly believe you can join the long list of people, like Kristin, who got better without even seeing one of our practitioners!
Thank you for your interest in Veritas! We are honored you’d consider us as a partner in your wellness journey!
