So I thought we'd get started today was a little bit of your background social background in medicine. Sure that's that's a great question good launching off point. Show my background well. I get my undergraduate that the universe is Cincinnati in nineteen late eighties and it. And I was exposed there to profession. Nature I think that. And that I wallow in the air I can my undergraduate. Prerequisite to. They need to college University of Cincinnati actually in 1930 could you repeat last. Regular medical program and teaching primarily. East. Herbal medications. The eclectic cop out click eclectic college so let that college they're. I'm great tell library actually in the Cincinnati area he says create a cup title library. Some of the best or medical textbooks are Arnold. So I get exposed to that tile wall it was clear. And I would actually. He focused on sat cross cultural anthropology sports books kind of Barack. I got sociology it's about people who decided that it was going to be a doctor. Be treating people should understand people. And coherent action in the world and had to say that cut across cultural perspective. Looking in actually medicine religious systems around the world early. Help me understand. Thinking it's right now is actually the position. My myself when I was young I looked sickly. Child. I'll I couldn't go away don't Perry's independent. We're gonna keep. Any collapsed. One to three weeks. And it's endless cat scan of the neat thing Katz camp to which ankle and it. I can really put era England on it. And also adds that just need it. And Colin had certain to look at my and headaches and you look at L. So I and I knew it hurt my chest. And so I I myself. What do I need to listen to the speaker. And I had find out about getting well because it was getting well and look around this field. Let's say yeah let's get religion religion to Matthew on now. Yeah absolutely absolutely did it and what brings into the Pacific northwest when did you come out your report. I cannot hear about twenty years ago and I can and twelve years is becoming each edition these. When Odierno who'll discuss schools actually out in the court or patents that. Pursuing the the program. You see nature traffic is neutral after the correct pronunciation. Larry could. It's a good question. What I like he's good to train and a twenty years ago are still. Only call people I surround our tradition treat thirties forties. I still consistently clinical practice. And I had to out because my orientation new topology. I interviewed Taiwan Thailand. And do you actually cracked these components and meal times and take mature look at it. Who which that was kind of funny I don't think it's any particularly nice you know her appropriate way to say it. And I count myself I would think you trip out sticker net Kirk a clear however one might say yeah. I need trick derivative bets were black. You. So maybe we should answer the question now what is neutral perfect medicine. So good shooter you haven't done it we outsource search and they can. The big question and ethnic question and there's a lot of there's a lot of low wage that codec that that could be answered. I'm gonna gluten roses and rose by any other team career as a lot of things to a lot of different people and people took coroner's. Do you. People. I'd rather see experience. Sent us now also what is the nature got the medicine so. It's a field now and I feel the medicine health care. That's derived really from what Lisa. Mouton. Natural helped actually started. And gosh murder I didn't take two years ago I mean what is movement forward natural helped. And tendered in Europe and how does that derived opera passions. I'm very good action and I think today we may think they can nature path conditions natural health care. People can just heard and aren't sure it might need homeopathic. Herbal medications. They can meet all the things. Compaq Packard chatter. But it what is it time I think if we really look at what it is. The grueling natural it is natural. Health movement was focused on diet. Exercise. Fresh air strikes and human beings yeah it's you know we see everywhere around the corner. And how when I was. Gosh pursuing its. I hate seeing it. Thirty years ago I'm working a small excellence. Tiny thing. Smaller than those corner Stewart it was 120 and Stewart. He go down the street is who lose their DC and all counts he they're everywhere along with health clubs how this so yeah. Really all of these. Tim Belcher and eat out of this country whole movement and also on a trip out net and it took up positions. And now really are beginning to appreciate in the modern era. On the importance of these Croce who are out. Call the crew immediately paying off its charter shall. It's really quite a large field of the traditional and nature epic medicine treat its stock this year and similarly. To regular meditation retreat likely in the doctors aren't we also is trained extensively. Gary tactics may creation. And you hear the end of the job. He can trained. In Chinese medicine and congress to help also act up pressure. I know. Clearly crossed the work herbal medications calmly walking along with dedication and description. Well so extremely comprehensive training program that the nature Patrick physicians and train. I really think it could you look at me I'll see app matters. Justin you could feel better about it. A variety of providers it curses Haitian tradition I would say they're kind of citation. Tradition and our spirit is really a pardon Spielberg. Actual help York. Do you feel that neutral perfect medicine is becoming more popular these days. Absolutely. Absolutely I'm crying I leaps and bound their principal idea region's poor. It see I'm in a big one that option overlooked is her seat change that occurred in the early 1990. And because of the US Supreme Court decision. 1986. What happened is a chiropractor. Caught chiropractic got group actually so I can't tell when he will suit. The American. Should work. Improper. But if not all patient health care. And they actually want US Supreme Court. Quarter of the American Medical Association ninety sic it is big. It's secrets the secret organization. That it is illegal and legal distraction to see you prosecute. The market and actually. Saying and what you're doing monopolizing health care system. I think it's being under the organization that quietly. And secretly working to lobby. I. Legally it creates against outlaw all expansion. Income and number Dietrich out because nobody seemed to eat eat eat eat. Yeah and quietly working basically undermine. Accept and welcome what can happen. And I noticed it angered its. 01 of the things that we actually teach exchange. And country America. I'm gonna make opportunities and the people around that time. And can position that they could no longer current political in nature Patrick college is where he is accredited. Accreditation immediately or educational and it would stop. Because it won't eat or completions that could no longer is that courts don't do. They were allowed to go out. And he comes. I. Stopped being an accent who. Suppression. Interference. It'll loud. Consumer access at all your last twenty odd he hears it's just explode. It exploded. Can look at any. Numbers in terms of people are actually used health care dollars under coon creek natural contract. Uncle stand to listen to the significant work out of pocket who natural health pure sources and Kirk act and act as her. Addition they will regular medicine. So there's definitely movement towards. Absolutely certainly Natalie. Serious. Any significant gluten wheat crop. Convention this is disputed fact many medical doctors are actually. Moving towards we're not pat. Walker could trigger a decrease. It is definitely girl absolute. Is Nestor traffic medicine covered by you of traditional insurance. Well I hit a good question. It's a good question of course scraping seat she used in the healthcare. Industry. Boone ended an industry and how it operated ones are really out there. Are content. Who have developed into a short period time. Or twenty team now. From the 1960s. Up until now has certainly out on the streets to become its marker otter skate. And it's going to go after the all compete for certain the DEU leaders work. And I we're manicurist who in the 1960s and the trip or your icons. If they could be included and the police. And doctors who behind them of course the secret or Haitian. And what this thing. Senators aren't simple but yeah. Of course trying to certainly caught up now Hulk her now. And you certainly know import their. All it takes I think that east. But ethical sort of opponent so there is they weren't included. So insurance company's current period covered and we Karen crack pick. Nature pat us open it's growing there. Some reimbursement here in the unfortunate thing about. Can turn to reimburse students patience don't notice I didn't know. It capacity cut school training program they keep the tradition. Is that insurance is in the background really dictating that I could hear it text or anything I think it calmly get out. It was good or not so true so what is Colette doesn't. But doctors also are making decisions based on the needs of our when he cop. Anti trillion collection to see that. That that good natured secret to your blog it is scenic. It's device that quote agree. To shortwave. Pretty good at and is done. Actually. Can help non illegal and I get you up and that it. Obviously the look poor. Is that. Actually don't support. But if you're. Well nutrients to push to crop that the memory of the injured tissue attack and Arctic you. And it's very important. Important. Into the study in 1991. Get injured with insurance. And they come to court and we're the guys feel there's no. I root of these devices can nursing homes which saved. According to this study period turns this 2.2 billion dollars in health care costs. In 1991 dollars because it would help these two should he know about the cornerback. And Vietnamese and those dollars are people and there are people. And accounts. And they're not healing can't you McCain in 99 almost. 220 just one application. Why is not being embraced what does not PE as well. Aniston didn't quite didn't. Quite calendar either reason is because she clapped supplied by. Eating. And it's Greenberg output seen Billy get reimbursed at a cat facility treatment and hot out which is next not. And so yeah oh enterprise unit that can cost at least I'm forty now and all this requires a certain degree and a clinical Molly and how quiet because all. And and you apply to any trump co managers could practice. It's not a viable option. And so what happened to us and adopted and it's ultimate cougar. So. Their decisions that are made it and the insurance and dictating the heat are normally ships that are happening now so. I ask you lastly good content question. Two entrance reversed Luke sometimes they do but who really good relationship. The patient. I'd be up. Evidence is quite clear action is back with the British. And finished making decisions uncommitted he's the cool Ike are way. Doing so there's changes that app after. But yet there are forced them on many it will reversed his position. Tactically under the Affordable Care Act you're not let us be discrimination among tight good position. But insurance companies that are that the fighting that's been. In the air irregular cleaning up in the air they're bottom line is they're. Stakeholders which are not patient now. We're talking today with doctor Eric Blake medical director in neutral graphic doctor at the Portland clinical holistic health. We talked about diabetes being on the rise that also cancer rates are on the rise the United States what do you see is causing that. Absolutely. Well I think most public health Ortiz would agree it has to do is obesity. Can do it our poor diet lack of exercise. I'm bad and so what. Lies. It is to who has to do with increased diagnosis and screening you can catch currently are big screen better. Up but there's certainly a lot. Yeah. Rates. Some of them. Are seeing that Laura has to do it we PG. This type thing about it. Not necessarily true. That abstinence night anchors come around. 50% of people in their old beat. Good can't I. And type. Out here. Certainly. The do it it certainly do the B eight weeks. Which actually change how we armed only. Respond to things but certainly some of it is an environmental exposures. Cox and lack of a better word they're. 80000. Chemicals in the states that are crude crude use. On a daily basis a court order which you shouldn't ask for literacy and certainly not all company. So there's there's a lot this netstat intrigued me completely by. End. Smoking course is on the crime it is good that he is the second leading copper that hurt. Artie I'm kind of cancer. The leading cause who. You and it's continued to rise around the world. What about the approved minimum amount of medications that people are taking these days. Are there ways to get off the medication. Well you know polish pharmacy can be an issue not a time to compete your actions that many people will I mean. And I could clinic if they are have been prescribing medication wanting to get off gonna. And it's not unreasonable or irrational. Perspective. Well we know it could certainly didn't call to ask these days. He has in the cause actual application he's actually shown to what's considered inappropriate. And correct. Intervention in a hospital care medical. The first time that back in nearly 2000 doctors are you. That is all look at it. And I heard last minute. The jam the other day. Of people who are not. Is dying from what was considered the correct medical intervention that you really stress smoking they trust what he's hospital here. This hospital here that we include Al currently costs the historical. I'm starting Manny. And a pathetic and even recently collapsed here. Published in the British medical jerk. The PNBA which is kind of like that JAMA journal that equipment co American Medical Association between two big picture. It it actually simply it's you have in the journal of the American Medical Association was. Compared to earn it. Britain certainly called and taxes in order again. I would consider it appropriate intervention and this is in the news US world report. Headline. Who certainly could out there public caught in many people woke me I would like to do so I think if and and I understand that and Molly our perspective it is future epic dot com certain her clinic kids. Less medication. Better. Our primary school about how come we can't get after patient it's that bad el Al. That's her call also can control and what perspective. I think a pretty poor against you really try to really be ourselves. Are of any courteous we may have we don't wanna do anything so. I guess patience tried medication won't cool might be to reduce or eliminate that when I point out a better. School is their best health and safety. So why that's important be in example commonly prescribed truck I would be at the top proton pump inhibitors. I wish to have. And actually seek issue. Yeah. Drug that might eased lately a couple of pressure but it's a commonly used and I can you know get it now. We've seen these drugs because he's very powerful agents very outreach. And once you start taking her body can compete how great they are so. We're taking any trunk control wonder how they're good actor or capture and stop. Very calmly could collect it. This struggle in which we design these short period of time. Sure it is time reduce the acid production. Let Wall Street injured tissue and don't just keep track you deal. You can prescribes something to help the PT on bet. Stop this short term can hurt you all work out production well. Period now used extensively for very long period talk. Patents what happens when the bodies can't screw TC touch record actually. Is. Two that they receive access to continue to compete access to our lips tightly regulating chemicals. And it's not getting I have to produce they body produces another hormone can gaining weight I should work actually production. And again he doesn't drug the body don't listen to the body produces more. And again because in the truck body adolescent. Well that'll go on line and if you suddenly removed after. And it's like remain gearbox. Oracle. The stomach who is here but it was not here because of the truck and all. Respond with ED yager it's early I court and actually exacerbate. In the course you could symptoms. So somebody had reflux or heartburn they're prescribed. Truck to stop them at least I record captured it. And the stopped period began taking a pro water on the body extradition this or could try to stimulate the release Roger clerk after which is being stopped. I have achieved lately can you won't see you this medication. When you walk in. Will it will be an enormous amount of production of I work ethic which can be. Naked seem like oh I really need distraught. Which can exacerbate an awful so when it comes to coming off medications wanna be person want. Understand why there are some went on medication. Wonders what all this work to treat and crew that and then you can oracle and I'm not very often we want to leave off the potential. Over time. And Luis Alicea and effective manner that we don't upset the equilibrium. Car. Doctor Blake give a couple of minutes left and wanna ask you what you see in the future for natural perfect medicine. What I see in the future oil haunt IC yeah I seen expanding world health care that's sponsor case. The profession is growing and certainly a widespread except. Luke definitely. Move and trans towards adoption. Even in regular Madison toward understand he's election. It here Lou did he clinic we see people not only. Earlier.
