Simply treating the disease without treating the cause inevitably leads to more symptoms and new diseases. This results in more disability and more expense (financial as well as personal suffering). The underlying metabolic disturbance that led to the symptoms or disease must be addressed and treated. Due to the unique nature of each person, Dr. Lorentzen ensures that therapy is individualized to treat the whole person.
