Episode 22:20 – Your Disease Is NOT The Problem

On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss how the real challenge in health care is NOT in treating your disease. It’s in treating the CAUSE of your disease.

Episode 22:20 Your Disease Is NOT The Problem

On last week’s episode we talked about the ONE mistake every medical doctor makes:

They focus their attention solely on treating symptoms and diseases without trying to identify and correct their CAUSE.

The reason this is a mistake is simple:

Treating symptoms does NOT help your body heal.

Healing only comes from identifying and eliminating the CAUSE of your symptoms.

On this episode we dive deeper into this very important topic.

Specifically, we share how your disease is NOT the problem.

Instead, your disease is simply the "signalling system" that your body uses to let you know there IS a problem... an underlying CAUSE to your symptoms and disease.

Unfortunately, most doctors ignore this and limit their scope of practice to the treatment of symptoms.

This does you, the patient, an injustice.

On this week's episode we also share how, if you're struggling to discover the cure to a condition, you MUST find a doctor who will work with you on identifying and eliminating the CAUSE.


Because, without addressing the CAUSE, there’s a good chance your body will not heal!

A good example of this - one we talk about on the episode - is the treatment of High Blood Pressure.

As you know, the typical patient with High Blood Pressure is simply given drugs.

- Drugs that will only "mask" the problem.

- Drugs they will have to take for the rest of their life.

- Drugs that come with several negative side-effects.

- Drugs that will do nothing to provide a cure!

That is, although drugs can lower a person’s blood pressure numbers, they will do NOTHING to correct the CAUSE of High Blood Pressure.

As a result, the underlying problems that are CAUSING the High Blood Pressure will persist and continue to do harm to the person’s body.

Unfortunately, this problem is NOT limited to the treatment of High Blood Pressure.

It applies to nearly ALL chronic conditions!

That is, in nearly ALL chronic conditions - High Blood Pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, Fatigue, Headaches, Digestive Disorders, Alzheimer’s, and Arthritis - drugs are prescribed to deal with the SYMPTOMS, while the CAUSE goes unaddressed.

This has to stop!


On this episode we lay the foundation for doing just that... and set the stage for our next two episodes:

One which will discuss the idea of using Natural Solutions (as opposed to drugs) for treating chronic conditions.

The other for sharing the three primary CAUSES behind nearly all chronic conditions.

Give this episode a good listen as the information will change how you view your symptoms… and how you view your doctors!
