Dr. Matthew Flory grew up sick. Not the kind of sick where you take your temperature and stay in bed … but the kind of slow-developing sick that causes more than 75% of people to eventually develop a chronic condition like Diabetes, Heart Disease,
Pain, Depression, Cancer or an Autoimmune disease at some time in their life.
Using this impactful health experience to his advantage, Dr. Flory uncovered a health secret about 10 years ago buried deep in the medical journals. He came across
a little-known group of studies which show that 75-90% of ALL DIAGNOSIS are driven by Chronic Inflammation. This led him to develop a unique process that starts with one main question, “What is causing your Inflammation?” Shouldn’t this be
what your doctor cares about instead of which drugs will quiet down your symptoms and allow the CAUSE to proceed unnoticed?
His CAUSE-based Medicine approach begins by recognizing Inflammation as your body’s basic “fight-or-flight” response
which protects you against all environmental influences. Therefore, your Chronic Inflammatory state is NOT one where the immune system is “not working,” it is simply misdirected or chronically triggered.
Dr. Flory has dedicated himself to
this CAUSE-based Medicine message because of its fundamental truths and inherent respect for others … despite the pressures of the medical status quo. It is a message you don’t frequently hear in mainstream medicine due to the huge financial
profits involved with putting people on a growing list of pharmaceutical drugs for the rest of their life.
