“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher, 1788-1860
The cause of about 80% of chronic illnesses is found in lifestyle: how we live, what we eat, how we sleep….
Lifestyle medicine treats the cause of these illnesses, and is therefore very effective in treating chronic illnesses caused by lifestyle.
Isn’t it better to turn off the tap before mopping the floor?
Our health system very often focuses on treating symptoms and consequences of disease instead of treating the cause. Treating the cause of disease is a very efficient method of treating disease!
