Due to inconsistent logical thinking and the inability to treat the causes of chronic diseases, medicine tends to treat the symptoms and blurs the distinction between the symptoms, triggers, and causes of the disease!
The distinction between the causes of the disease, symptoms, triggers & catalysts is essential.
Causes vs. Symptoms vs. Catalysts.
- In cases of first-time infectious disease, pathogens are indeed the cause of the disease.
- The same pathogens are only triggers and catalysts in chronic stages because the human body is designed to overcome any intruder. The underlying cause of chronic infectious or inflammatory diseases is always a weak immune system.
Logically - a symptom of one disease - can not be the cause of another disease!
- High blood pressure and high levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood are not the cause of heart disease or diabetes! (Widespread logical error) The leading cause of these diseases is an unhealthy diet and an unhealthy (mental and physical) lifestyle. (Incessant tension, little sleep)
Seemingly these are semantic definitions! But they dramatically impact the way doctors and the entire medical establishment thinking.
