GET TO THE ROOT.

Rethinking Illness, Rethinking Medicine

The founding mission of RRH is to support folks in (or even lead them to) a new way of thinking about illness and health, observing that (with a handful of exceptions) prescription drugs and surgery don't really fix anything, only mask more fundamental problems. The "drug it out, cut it out" approach that doctors & nurses learn in medical school works great for infectious disease and emergency room medicine (and we're grateful for that), but where chronic illness is concerned it's not the path to creating and sustaining true health. 

A functional medicine, "root cause" approach might be greeted by some as heretical, but if you strip away a lifetime of "match the pill to the ill" cultural programming, approaching illness and health with questions like 'how' and 'why' suddenly appears like common sense. After all, it's at the very foundational level-- assimilation, elimination, signaling, nutrient sufficiency and detoxification capacity-- that the elements of health and wellness underlie.

Guy Raz and Siddhartha Mukherjee (of "Emperor of All Maladies" renown) put together a 12-minute "soil vs. seed" clip about this a few years back, as part of a series on "Rethinking Medicine" for the TED Radio Hour. While Mukherjee's specific example is about stem cells, the concept of building up from a solid foundation is the same.

ARE YOU GETTING YOUR BRASSICA ?

Sulforaphane is a cancer fighting phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and broccoli, collards, bok choy, arugula, watercress and radishes. While it appears most effective against cancers of the colon and prostate, it is also being studied for its effects against many other cancers including pancreatic and breast cancers, leukemia and melanoma. Three day old broccoli sprouts are believed to have the largest amounts of this compound, containing 100 times more than the mature plant. (Will have to get back to you about radish and kale sprouts' content.) But don't go nuts, especially if you're in hypothyroid territory, as eating too much of just about anything raw in the Brassica family can interfere with iodine and selenium uptake. Another clever aphorism of functional medicine goes something like this: "Too much of a good thing can be bad."

On the Scales

I became intrigued when I saw my little brother's behavior issues kind of magically resolve once we discovered he had a yeast overgrowth and a sensitivity to gluten. No ADD drugs for him!

My issues were bloating, anxiety and skin. So I thought I'd give it a try. Fast forward two months. My skin is much, much better. Anxiety gone. I have more energy and even lost ten pounds! Even my periods have changed for the better. There really seems to be something to this "root cause" detective medicine!
