In this age of excessive information, we have been conditioned to search for one condition with one diagnosis. This environment is further strengthened by Professional and Social Media Influencers paying search engines to place their products and websites on the first page of internet searches. Influencers publish books on one condition, for example “Mold” with an ever-growing list of common (ubiquitous) symptoms associated with that one condition. All the while purporting to being “Holistic” characterized by their comprehension of the parts of the body as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.
Most people lives are a direct reflection of their peer group. Many of those reading this will suffer from cognitive dissonance due to the information in this website being different from what they expected to read.
One must be free of any preconceived notion in relationship to diagnosis and treatment. Be open to findings. Recommend and perform treatment with an open mind – free of any misconception influenced by click-bait funnels and social media.
Discernment is the ability to make wise decisions in difficult situations. In a rapidly changing world, amid a deluge of ideas and opinions, how can we clearly see what is right and wrong? Where can we find true wisdom? Why is there so much confusion in the world when it comes to health?
The Tenets of Functional Splanchnology are the rules of discernment I use when triaging a patient or reviewing the latest greatest Diagnosis du jour.
Our recommendations will include the most appropriate targeted functional lab testing, nutritional and lifestyle upgrades, mindset transformations, and necessary supplement support. We do not replace medical interventions but instead help our patients become their own health advocates.
Our goal is always centered around restoring health and vitality that can be maintained through diet, movement and lifestyle. We believe that normal function cannot be restored through the lens of a diagnosis. A diagnosis should be temporary and never a life sentence. A diagnosis can never paint the full picture of what is going on and only limit intervention options.
Function/Dysfunction takes priority over naming a Diagnosis. Your health is more important that calling out a Diagnosis in three symptoms or less. Especially with all the ubiquitous symptoms constantly being added to Fake-Fad Diagnosis du jours promoted by Professional and Social Media Influencers through paid for promotion on Internet search engines.
I know! I know? How are you feeling? Are your Autoimmune conditions improving, staying the same or getting worse? Are you focused on suppressing your symptoms to feel ‘better’?
Your immune system works to recognize and identify an infection or injury in the body. This causes an immune response, with the goal of restoring normal function. Many people think that they get sick, their symptoms are a sign that they have a virus or an infection.
However, your symptoms are actually a sign that your body has triggered an immune response. When you have a cold, you feel run down, your nose is runny, you feel congested—these are the symptoms people complain about. People think ‘I’m so sick, this is terrible. Why doesn’t my immune system work?’ But with every one of these cold symptoms, that is your immune system at work. A fever is your immune system heating up the body to kill the microbes.
Through the past 20+ years of practicing Functional Healthcare, there has been an ever-revolving popular diagnoses, treatment and supplements. If a diagnosis, treatment or supplement violates any of the Tenets of Health, it is put into the Fake-Fad Category. For example, Hormone Ratios (progesterone/estrogen, cortisol/DHEA, etc) fail to take into account the eleven (11) different estrogens, each with a different purpose and function in the body.
