It never ceases to amaze me the stories patients tell me….
Where in any area of life does it not matter what the cause of a problem is? What profession?
A few weeks ago I was fixing our riding lawnmower. Now, I grew up fixing engines so it wasn’t anything new to me. But it took some time to figure out what the ACTUAL problem was.
I found a piece in the engine (intake valve pushrod) was snapped in half. So, I went and bought a new one…
And the lawnmower again started working. Well, for about 2 minutes…
You see, I was in a hurry and didn’t get to the root of WHY the pushrod had snapped.
It turns out it was a bolt that was stripped dealing with the EXHAUST valve. You see, it was a different part of the engine that was causing the problem.
I could have ignored it and kept putting new pushrods in, but how silly would that be?
The CAUSE is the only thing that matters.
And the same with your health. Watch the following video of one of my patients telling her story of TWO different doctors who told her that the cause of her thyroid condition didn’t matter!!
REALLY? The cause doesn’t matter? Sheesh…
