Disease care vs health care: which would you choose?

Contrary to conventional wisdom, chronic disease is not genetically predetermined but results from a mismatch between our genes and environment and lifestyle. What we call a "disease" is the outcome of an imbalance in one or more of the seven core physiological processes. Leveraging a lifetime on the cutting edge of research and practice, Dr. Jeffrey S. Bland lays out a road map for good health by helping us understand these processes and the root causes of chronic illness. As Bland teaches us, no two people have the identical form of any disease, so with the right personalized program, we can safely and effectively manage and ultimately cure what ails us.

In the twenty-first century, medicine is undergoing a paradigm shift comparable to the advances in infectious disease in the late nineteenth century. While these strides have nearly doubled life expectancies in only four generations, quality of life has yet to rise to its full potential. Treatment of chronic diseases—diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, dementia, and many others—is responsible for 78 percent of total health care costs in the United States, yet we're managing the symptoms of these illnesses with pills and temporary remedies instead of identifying, preventing, and addressing their underlying causes. In The Disease Delusion, we learn how we may fundamentally change our perceptions of illness and approach a cure.

Dr. Bland has greatly influenced many of the biggest names in medicine today, but until now we have not had access to the larger framework in which to understand chronic illness or ways to foster lifelong health. Complete with self-evaluation questionnaires and sample meal plans, and supported by the most recent advances in health science, The Disease Delusion is indispensable to anyone determined to live long and well.

Includes 8 interactive health assessments you can complete on your phone

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Schon die Seminare des Altmeisters der "Functional Medicine" waren immer ein besonderes Erlebnis. Das neue Buch von Jeffrey Bland ist eine ausgezeichnete Einführung in diese intelligente Art der Medizin, die zeigt wie chronische Erkrankungen durch Störungen der für die Gesundheit grundlegenden Funktionen erkannt und behoben werden können. Als langjährig tätiger Allgemeinarzt kann ich sagen dass wir Ärzte sehr viel wissen über Erkrankungen, aber sehr wenig über genannte Funktionen. Das Buch geht in die Tiefe und verlangt schon Sachkenntnisse oder ein grosses Interesse an der Materie, aber dann ist es ein überragendes Werk, dass eigentlich Pflichtlektüre sein sollte für jeden praktisch tätigen Arzt oder Therapeut. Nur der Titel gefällt mir nicht: Krankheit ist keine Wahnidee, sondern besteht natürlich wirklich, kommt jedoch nicht vom Himmel fallen, sondern entsteht auf durchaus verständliche Weise aus Fehlleistungen von biologischen Systemen. Dr. Bland hat hier eine spannende und für die Praxis unverzichtliche Grundlage beschrieben für eine längst überfällige Erneuerung der Medizin.

Jeffrey Bland war im Juli 2014 zu Gast in der Podcast Show von Dave Asprey (Bulletproof Exec)- da wurde u.a. auch dieses Buch vorgestellt. Alles was Dr. Bland von sich gab war super strukturiert und fachlich fundiert.
Und genauso strukturiert und faszinierend ist dieses Buch. Ein "must-read" für alle Mediziner.

Von bogitrue am 20. Dezember 2014
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Das buch von J.Bland beschreibt auf für laien sehr verständlich die ursachfindung für die chronischen krankheiten mit den methoden der ganzheitlichen funktionellen medizin. Diese medizin ist individuell, denn die ursachen der chronischen krankheiten sind spezifisch für jede person. Leider sind heute noch viel zu wenige ärtzte diesen ursachen bewusst und behandeln chronische krankheiten mit den methoden der akuten medizin, was häufig nicht zum erfolg führt. G.Bland spricht von einer vorgetäuschten krankheit, denn jede chronische erkrankung ist in tat und wahrheit durch eine kombination verschiedener krankheitsursachen entstanden, welche individuell angegangen werden müssen. Das buch ist sehr zu empfehlen für ärzte, aber auch für interessierte laien.

Must read for anyone living inside a human body 9. Mai 2014
Von Alejandro Junger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I had been to medical school for 8 years, done 6 years of postgraduate training and had practiced as a cardiologist for another 8 years before I discovered the teachings of Jeffrey Bland. My medical practice was transformed in such a profound way that not only allowed me to get way better results with my patients ( with way less medications ) but also to enjoy doing it.
Now anyone can learn these concepts and practices through this new book, which I consider a masterpiece.
Do yourself a huge favor and read this book...

An effective toolkit for reclaiming your health and vitality 12. Mai 2014
Von Terry L. Wahls - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. I discovered Functional Medicine in 2007 and used the principles described by Dr. Jeff Bland to restore my health and vitality after having six years of steady decline and spending four years in a tilt/recline wheelchair due to secondary progressive MS. I can now walk easily, bike 20 miles with my family and even jog again. Over one hundred years ago, Thomas Edison foretold that, “The physician of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his [or her] patient in a proper diet, the care of the human frame and the cause and prevention of disease”. Sadly physicians are mostly still in love with the latest greatest and priciest drugs and interventions.
We are finally seeing that prophecy come to pass in the work of Dr. Bland and Functional Medicine. With The Disease Delusion you will be introduced to Functional Medicine and how you can finally understand the real root cause of health and of disease, and most importantly what you can do to create health and thereby stabilize and reverse the vast majority of chronic health problems. Your will learn that your environment, every aspect of it, is talking to your genes and creating your state of health or of disease. Your will also learn the tools to begin changing the messages from your environment to your genes to create health and begin the process of restoring vitality. I tell my patients who have suffered for years, often decades, to give me just a month of a functional medicine approach to health and then decide at the end of the month whether to continue the diet and lifestyle changes I recommend on the basis of Functional Medicine. Time and time again I see blood pressures fall, blood sugars normalize, mood stabilize, autoimmune conditions reverse. The need for medications steadily decline. People are able to reduce and eliminate medication after medication as their bodies repair themselves.
This book is life changing. It will give you the tools to understand how to become well once again. Terry Wahls, M.D., author The Wahls Protocol How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

Some great stuff, but a lot that is not 25. August 2014
Von Timothy D. Lundeen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There is a lot to like in Jeffery's book. It explains why conventional medicine doesn't work for chronic illness, because it just treats symptoms and creates side-effects. It talks about using nutrition and natural plant-based supplements as vital components of true healing. It has good information about the different systems of your body, how they interconnect, and how interventions affect the entire network of your body.

So why the three-star rating? Jeffery makes some recommendations and uses some protocols that are actively dangerous, and can make you very sick. Then there are many recommendations that are not optimal, and a number of key things that are missing.

--- Dangerous ---

(1) Jeffery describes diagnosing and treating a patient with mercury poisoning, using a "challenge" test, where the patient is given a high dose of a chelator, followed by measuring the change in mercury content of his/her urine. The idea is that a large increase shows that mercury has been stored in his/her body, and that he/she needs to clear it to recover good health. The problem is that high single doses of a chelator mobilize mercury, move it around, and if it settles in the wrong place it can cause serious, possibly permanent damage. Google "DMPS backfire" for some examples. DMSA and EDTA, the other common challenge tests, have the same issue.

The correct way to diagnose and treat chronic mercury toxicity, and other heavy metal poisoning, is through a hair test, using Andy Cutler's diagnostic protocols. (See his book on Hair Test Interpretation: Finding Hidden Toxicities.) This is completely safe and indicates total body burden, as compared to blood/urine tests which do not show what has been stored in your brain/organs/bones.

(2) Jeffery's week of sample menus includes a meal with 6.5 oz of tuna. The danger here is that tuna is a high-mercury fish, and albacore tuna can exceed 1 micro-gram/gram of mercury. So 6.5 ounces (about 200g) can give you 200ug of mercury. This is not something you want, ever, because a percentage of this will end up in your brain and organs and slowly poison you over time. (The half-life of mercury in the brain appears to be about 20 years.) Even light tuna is a high-mercury fish. If you are going to eat fish, eat Alaskan wild-caught salmon, or small fish like sardines.

(3) Jeffery mentions andrographis. This is an excellent treatment for acute infections, but lowers progesterone and is used as a contraceptive/abortifact. Don't use it while you are pregnant or trying to conceive.

--- Non-optimal ---

(1) Jeffery doesn't have any way to treat heavy metal poisoning, except with nutrition, anti-oxidants, and time. These may help you feel better, but the only way to reduce body stores effectively is to chelate. The only chelation protocol that has been shown to be safe is frequent-low-dose chelation, which has been used by thousands of people. This process slowly clears the toxic metals from your body, without the risk of serious harm that comes from high intermittent doses. See Andy Cutler's book on Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment : What You Can Do to Get Better, How Your Doctor Can Help for details.

Because Jeffery doesn't use hair tests, he cannot diagnose people who have heavy metal poisoning as the root cause of their poor health. For example, he treated a patient for Gulf War post-traumatic-stress-syndrome. This was likely caused by the thimerosol in the multiple vaccines given to these soldiers. (The French did not use thimerosol in their vaccines, and their solders did not get PTSD.) If so, then this patient would have been properly diagnosed with a hair test, and returned to true good health via frequent-low-dose-chelation.

Because many people have heavy metal poisoning, and heavy metal poisoning can cause any/all physical symptoms, a hair test for heavy metals should be the first test any health practitioner does for a new patient.

(2) I'm surprised that someone who mentions Weston Price has such a phobia for saturated fat. Weston Price observed many traditional cultures with very high saturated fat intake. All of them were extremely healthy and long-lived, with excellent bones/teeth and no chronic degenerative diseases or dementia. Instead of taking this information to heart, Jeffery's nutrition advice is far from optimal. The best book on nutrition ever written is the Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet: Regain Health and Lose Weight by Eating the Way You Were Meant to Eat, much superior to what's in this book.

(3) For food sensitivities and healing auto-immune disease, a much better book is Sarah Ballantyne's The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body.

(4) For treating thyroid/adrenal issues, the best diagnostic protocol appears to be temperature measurement twice a day, and supplementing with glandulars/thyroid until everything stabilizes appropriately. You don't even need to see a doctor. An enjoyable book describing this, and other helpful protocols, is Danial Forsyth's The Mercury Diaries.

--- Missing ---

(1) No mention of how posture affects health (poor posture is one of the key factors in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis). Best books for this are Esther Gokhale's 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back: Natural Posture Solutions for Pain in the Back, Neck, Shoulder, Hip, Knee, and Foot, Katy Bowman's Alignment Matters: The First Five Years of Katy Says, and any/all of Pete Egoscue's books. The Egoscue Clinics are extremely helpful in getting where you want to be.

(2) No mention of proprioception and how blockages can affect health. Best/only book is Simon King's Live Without Pain: A New Theory on What's Wrong with You and How to Fix It..

(3) No mention that our bodies are designed for frequent, low-intensity movement, and that this is essential for health. Best book is Joan Vernikos's Sitting Kills, Moving Heals: How Everyday Movement Will Prevent Pain, Illness, and Early Death -- and Exercise Alone Won't.

(4) Jeffery does mention massage for improving lymph flow, but does not mention lymphatic drainage massage specifically, or medi-cupping, both of which excellent. Medi-cupping gets phenomenal results, highly recommended.

Some solid information, but woefully incomplete 30. Juli 2014
Von Marcea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book had a lot of helpful information about how the body works, specifically how different systems of the body interact. It had a lot of details about cell physiology, genetics, and phytonutrients. There was a lot of good general advice, but unfortunately also some bad advice.
PROS: The best thing about this book was how specific Bland got about which particular nutrients in certain foods were good for your genes and why. For example, he details how the sulforaphane in broccoli affects your genes to facilitate detox. He also explained exactly why foods like garlic, onions, eggs, and so on help your body create immune bodies and detox itself. Bland also does a good job explaining how certain systems of the body (like building and maintaining bone, or the immune system) work. Bland also uses extensive endnotes and research for most of the book.
CONS: There were some huge gaps that led to some rather bad advice. For example, Bland emphasizes how important it is to make sure your body actually absorbs the nutrients it needs and does not get any problematic proteins or additives in its food. He is careful to advise against eating gluten, but then he goes to advise eating other grains, potatoes, and legumes, all of which contain some very problematic proteins that can cause leaky gut and poor absorption of micronutrients. There is no discussion of the saponins or lectins found in beans or potatoes, no discussion of phytates which bind up minerals the body needs and don't allow absorption--in short, giant gaps in a book that is otherwise very thorough. It puzzles me why he does not seem aware of any of these problems, especially when it is so prevalent in modern research. If you're concerned about plant proteins wreaking havoc in your gut, gluten is not the only bad guy. He also claims whole grains have lower GI's than refined grains, which is often true but far from always. Also, Bland seems unaware of the recent research on saturated fat. The science has long shown that saturated fat is not a bad thing, and the medical community has slowly been catching on to this, but Bland still seems in the dark. Part of me wonders if this is just him bending to peer pressure, as he apparently has a close relationship to anti-fat people like Dean Ornish. Surely a fair review of the literature, unbiased by pals, would show him saturated fat is not so disastrous as he thinks. It's interesting that some of the groups and studies he references (e.g. Cochrane) actually debunk the "saturated fat is awful" idea, but he still seems unaware of it. Hopefully he will read the journal articles and such he references more carefully for his next book!
Overall, this book had a lot of useful information about genetics and cell biology. If you can ignore the advice given about saturated fat, legumes, and whole grains, you may pick up some good ideas for foods to eat to be healthy.

if you ever had any debilitating disease this is the book that will help you discover how to handle anything in your body that is making you sick. This is fact filled & helped my husband who had colon cancer just 1yr. ago. Diet, sleep & meds can work if you know your own body type & if you care enough about yourself to read this. Part of this book ic chemistry, the other part is diet & nutrition as well as clinical trials that have worked. I highly recommend it.
