THE GAP BETWEEN MEDICAL RESEARCH
AND MEDICAL PRACTICE
"The Grand Canyon is a roadside ditch compared to the chasm that exists between medical research and medical practice." Dr. Russell Schierling
I frequently go to Functional Medicine seminars. The instructors (most are Functional Neurologists trained by TED CARRICK and DATIS KHARRAZIAN), spend hours --- sometime days ---- putting up scores of studies via their computer projectors for the entire class to see. Although many of these studies are new, many others are not. In fact, some as many as three or four decades old. The studies relate to wide variety of topics, but frequently have to do with important things like AUTOIMMUNTY, GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, LEAKY GUT SYNDROME, BLOOD SUGAR, GUT HEALTH, as well as a whole host of other HEALTH-RELATED TOPICS. Because the medical research is absolutely loaded to the brim with studies on these and similar issues, the average doctor could be using this cutting-edge information to blaze away at full-auto. Instead they continue to shoot blanks by following the status quo --- the pathway picked out for them by Big Pharma. In your heart of heart you know that the reason why boils down to one thing ---- money.
The really cool thing is that even if your doctor is not really interested in staying current with the most up-to-date, relevant, and cutting-edge health news; because of the internet, you can do it all yourself. Knowledge is power. Hopefully this blog is a small part of a knowlde to empower you to make wise health-related decisions for yourself and your family.
