When it comes to understanding complex ailments: where the conventional approach has doctors scrutinizing over the contents of disease, with all its various symptoms and effects – the Innovative Medicine approach looks to the context that created it.
Why is this important?
In order to truly understand how to treat any ailment, one must have an understanding of what created it in the first place. In the case of CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) as an example, some patients may develop symptoms due to an infection while others due to stress. When you begin to take this broader view, it becomes clear that treating two patients in the same way, simply because they have been given the same diagnosis, is neither the most rational nor most effective approach. Understanding all aspects of a patient’s health and life that lead to their current condition is essential when it comes to devising their unique and personalized program of treatment.
