Where modern, conventional medicine (cutting and drugging and focusing on symptoms) fails, health practitioners who focus on identifying causes and remedying problems succeed.
In “This Month’s Real Story: Cheyenne” (10-5-2012), Dr. Becker writes:
I met Cheyenne in early September 2001, not long after she was given 4 weeks to 4 months to live by the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at the University of Illinois’ College of Veterinary Medicine. Cheyenne had been diagnosed with metastatic mast cell tumors that were both aggressive and incurable (page 1).
The owner went to see Dr. Becker.
Cheyenne is now 16 years old, and Julie chuckled, “Remember when U. of I. told us she had 4 months to live?” I certainly remembered, yet there we were, completing a true wellness (not illness) exam on a geriatric dog who feels great and has a wonderful quality of life. The mast cell tumor above her left elbow remains about the same size, never getting much bigger, and never going entirely away. Cheyenne still chases squirrels. She still loves being outside and going for walks. She still sasses her mom and draws joy from every minute of every day… all while living with “terminal” cancer.
Cheyenne is a true success story, still going strong a decade past her prognosis.

Same with people: unless you have some emergency needing immediate medical attention, seek out a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition doc or some holistic doc — but then, seek them out also after your immediate emergency needs have been fulfilled.
