In this video, Dr. Huntoon discusses the question, "Are having symptoms ever normal?"
So much of our "Healthcare System" is based on treating symptoms. Did you know that in order to have a symptom, you have to lose greater than 60 % of normal functioning? But to use your health insurance, you have to have full blown disease in order for your insurance to pay your claim.
So the system we have requires you to have a health concern in order to use your insurance and your insurance stops once you are out of symptoms; meaning functioning above 40 % of normal.
That is why we encourage people to stay with care long enough to correct your health concern. Then you are free to live your life and not have any health concerns.
Most healthcare practitioners regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the doctor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will be eliminating and restoring balance to all your specific health imbalances found during your initial examination. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase of care because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a year or more. Real expectations based on the chronic nature of your condition and your ability to follow Dr. Huntoon's instructions are important to consider when truly understanding the road to getting well.
Once optimum correction has been achieved, we will transition you to the next phase of care, Wellness Care.
