본문 중에서 김종수 박사가 지적한 문제점 중 일부 발췌

현대의학의 12가지 문제점들
1. 원인요법이 아닌 대중요법을 사용하므로 질병이 더 심각해 진다.

의사들은 전문가들이 서로 분리된 잘못된 의료시스템을 지니고 있다.
인간의 몸을 기계론적으로 다를 뿐 마음, 정신과 영혼에 무관심하다. 질병의 수요를 확장해 온 국민을 환자로 만들고 있다. 과잉검사가 과잉진료를 낳고 의료비만 계속 증가 시킨다. 검진장비는 이용만으로도 위험성과 문제점을 안고 있다. 수술의 남용으로 심각한 부작용을 가져오고 삶의 질 저하를 가져온다. 의료행위가 오히려 질병을 만들고 심각한 결과를 초래한다. 항생제 남용으로 새로운 전염병시대를 맞고 있다. 고령자를 과잉 약물치료하고 삶이 아닌 죽음의 연장만 시도한다. 독성 있는 약물사용으로 인해 자연 치유력을 잃고 부작용만 낳는다. 보완대체의학의 제도화를 막아 환자의 건강권, 생명권을 위협한다.

Thermography a safe and very effective alternative to mammograms
• Thank you for explaining the ugly truths about mammography which mainstream medicine for the most part chooses to ignore while making every attempt to bully patients into having mamm ograms.” • What are the alternatives to this invasive, painful, ineffective an d unsafe procedure? • Inflammation is a precursor to numerous diseases such as can cer, arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and high blood pr essure. Early detection of inflammation may help you prevent t he detection of many negative health conditions. • You can reduce inflammation with dietary changes, nutritional s upplements, antioxidants, detoxification, stress reduction. •

Benefits Thermograms
• Arthritis: Heart disease: screenings can assess heart function and detect inflammation in the carotid arteries (which may be a precursor to stroke and blood clots). Earlier detection of a heart pr oblem may save your life. Neck and Back Pain: Dental Issues: A thermal scan will indicate temporomandibular joint (TMJ), gum disease, or an infected tooth, as white or red hot. Sinus Issues & Headaches: Immune Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue: The immune system correlates to the T1 andT2 areas of your spine - high levels of heat in that region can indicate immune d ysfunction. On the other hand, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and aching joints are just a fe w complaints that correlate to cool patterns seen at this area. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS): Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn's disease are often v isible with thermography. Other Conditions: Including bursitis, herniated discs, ligament or muscle tear, lupus, nerve problems, whiplash, stroke screening, cancer, and many, many others.

Nutrient-Dense Foods Principles for Health, Healing and Longevity
• Generally includes at least 50% raw/living plant foods (as described below). • Includes organic, natural raised animal products (moderate amounts). • Utilizes principles of functional medicine, naturopathic medicine, raw/living food nutrition and related research to optimize bodily processes and promote health and healing from disease. • Focuses on supporting and optimizing bodily processes (immune, detoxification, digestion, inflammation, hormonal/regulatory processes, rebuilding/repair, and psychological/social spiritual), as well as healing disease

Raw & Living Foods Principles for Health, Healing and Longevity
• • • • • • • • • • • • Vegan diet: no animal products of any kind, cooked or raw. Organic. Whole Foods. High in nutrition: vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Contains a significant quantity of chlorophyll-rich green foods. Contains adequate complete protein from plant sources. Contains a large proportion of high-water content foods. Includes raw vegetable juices. Contains all essential fatty acids, including omegs-3 fatty acids from naturally occuring plant sources. Has moderate, yet adequate caloric intake. Is at least 80% raw (the remaining to be vegan, whole food and organic). Contains only low to moderate sugar and exclusively from whole food sources (fruitarianism is strongly discouraged) Supports both detoxification and rebuilding of healthy tissues. health, while preventing and minimizing disease.

Raw & Living Foods Principles for Health, Healing and Longevity
• • • • • • Supplementation with vitamin B-12 is suggested. The addition of enzyme active superfoods and whole food supplements is suggested. Health can be further optimized by tailoring the diet based on individual needs (within the principles stated). Benefits derived are proportional to how well the living food lifestyle principles are followed. Related information is constantly being updated and expanded upon as new research becomes available. Diet is a critical piece of a healthy lifestyle, yet not the entire picture. A full spectrum, health supporting lifestyle is encouraged. This includes physical exercise, exposure to sunshine, as well as psychological health. Avoiding environmental toxins and toxic products is essential. Paramount is pure water (for consumption and bathing), the use of natural fiber clothing, and non-toxic personal care products. Also suggested are healthly choices for home furnishings, building materials and related items. The main objective of the raw and living foods lifestyle is to promote


The Seven Time-Tested Principles of Naturaopathic Medicine:
• First, Do No Harm Nature Has Healing Powers Naturopathic physicians believe that the body has considerable power to heal itself. It is the role of the physician to facilitate and enhance this process with the aid of natural, nontoxic therapies. Identify And Treat The Cause Naturopathic physicians are trained to see the underlying causes of a disease rather than simply suppress the symptoms. Symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body's attempt to heal, while the causes can spring from the physical, mental-emotioal and spiritual levels. Treat The Whole Person The Physician Is A Teacher Naturopathic physicians are primarily teachers, educating, empowering and motivating patients to assume more personal responsibility for their health, by adoting a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet. Prevention Is The Best Cure Establish Health And Wellness "wellness' is defined as a state of health, characterized by a positive emotional state. The naturopathic physician strives to increase the patient's level of wellness, regardless of the level of health or disease. Even in cases of severe disease, a high level of wellness can often be achieved.




Functional Medicine / Science-Based Natural Healthcare
• • • • Biochemical individuality describes the importance of individual variations in metabolic function that derive from genetic and environmental differences among individuals. Patient-centered medicine emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care," following Sir William Osler’s admonition that "It is more important to know what patient has the disease than to know what disease the patient has." Dynamic balance of internal and external factors. Web-like interconnections of physiological factors – an abundance of research now supports the view that the human body functions as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems, rather than individual systems functioning autonomously and without effect on each other. For example, we now know that immunological dysfunctions can promote cardiovascular disease, that dietary imbalances can cause hormonal disturbances, and that environmental exposures can precipitate neurologic syndromes such as Parkinson’s disease. Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease. Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span.

• DNA methylation is a heritable epigenetic feature that is associated with transcriptional silencing, X-chromosome inactivation, genetic im printing, and genomic stability. The addition of the methyl group is ca talyzed by a family of DNA methyltransferases whose co-substrates are DNA and S-adenosylmethionine, the latter being derived from th e methionine cycle. Aberrant DNA methylation is linked to numerous pathologies, including cancer. The purpose of this review is to descri be DNA methylation and its functions, to examine the relationship be tween dietary methyl insufficiency and DNA methylation, and to evaluate the associations between DNA methylation and cancer .

nue to rivet molecular biologists. Lurking in cells a mong the thousands of messenger RNA (mRNA) tr anscripts that direct the synthesis of proteins, micr oRNAs function to inactivate specific mRNAs and deplete their corresponding proteins (Figure 1). Th e microRNAs average only about 22 nucleotides in length and are transcribed from DNA as hairpin pr ecursors. They regulate such major processes as development, apoptosis, cell proliferation, hemato poiesis, and patterning of the nervous system.2,3,4,5 Thus, the identification of the actions of microRNA s adds new layers of complexity to our understandi ng of human biology.

Just when scientists thought they had figured out the fundamental mechanis ms through which gene expression is regulated, studies of the nematode Ca enorhabditis elegans1 revealed the existence of a pathway, now known as R NA interference (RNAi), that silences gene expression by promoting degrad ation of RNA. Scientists have discovered ways to control RNAi in order to re gulate gene expression in a variety of biologic systems, and they are resear ching ways to harness RNAi to interrupt disease processes such as those c aused by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), hepatitis viruses, a nd influenzavirus.
