Here we can see wellness as as an attainable goal. Uniquely, Dr. Bland, elaborates on how to personalize treatment of some of our most common chronic health disorders. After reading Disease Delusions, you will have a better understanding of what you can do on your own and what you need a doctor or other health care practitioner to help with.

With a focus on understanding how various body systems function we can use symptoms, labs and other information to assess and correct dysfunction. There is no need to wait for full blown, diagnosable disease.

Treatment focus is on reducing excessive inflammation, maintaining low (normal) blood sugar, managing the extremes of stress and healing happens. How to do this? Personalized healthy diet, moderate exercise, rest and relaxation, relieve toxic burden, find joy. Use herbs, vitamins, drugs, as needed, often for a limited time - not indefinitely.

Yet, no matter how far disease has progressed, there is, often, treatment that can improve health and well being. Both body and mind have the ability to heal.
Functional Medicine provides the means to think about illness with the reasonable goal of reclaiming health!
