1. Deliver health care HEAD FIRST: Interpret all medical conditions with respect to the brain and nervous system.
2. Apply the model for menopause and thyroid replacement to every part of the body.
3. Substitute nutrient and non-drug alternatives for drug therapy whenever possible: multi-modalsynergistic treatment
4. Use early non-invasive and high-tech diagnostics for the assessment of subtle breakdown of health.
5. Re-Engineer the Medical school from a brain-health perspective – The Health Dominoes effect is not something you see happening, and it can begin with a small tumor. You then get surgery, and your anxiety increases. Before you know it, you hit your forties, and you start to miss one sexual encounter out of three with your husband. As time continues, one night out of seven you do not sleep well; twice a day you lose your temper from inadequate health. With these occurrences, your anxiety continues to increase. Your knees and hips start to bother you more. Exercise diminishes in duration, and you begin to lose fifteen minutes of sleep a day. Now, you are “dominoing” yourself into being an old woman or an old man.
6. Your Health Lies in Your Head – Effective, long-lasting treatments are the ones that incorporate the brain in both diagnosis and restorative recommendations. Being aware of the brain-based symptoms that are related to specific anatomic/functional areas – and the biochemicals related to them – enables us to look at health in a completely new light.
7. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and why we do not notice Silent Disease – No one in a closed system going 700mph can know how fast they are going; anymore than a person who carries light within themselves can know that it’s deteriorating. Hence the chain of dominoes proceeds. Every illness affects every other illness: from cancer causing osteoporosis, to heart disease causing depression, to demyelinization causing neurological problems, mood problems, even bladder problems – affecting virtually all aspects of health everywhere.
