TEDx Talk – How to make diseases disappear

By the time we give you a diagnosis, things have been going wrong for a long long time.
- Dr. Rangan Chatterjee

Recently came across this TEDx Talk which really resonated with me as I have been preaching this for the longest time within my family and friends that we should be looking at the source of the problem, not the symptoms. Finally, a doctor who understands this and puts it very eloquently.

Key takeaways:

    • Diagnosis should focus on being preventative, not reactive.
    • Cure the cause, not the symptoms.
    • Stress, diet, sleep, lack of exposure to sun, physical inactivity, gut microbiome are all critically important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
    • Depression is caused by 'chronic inflammation' which is when your body thinks its under constant attack.
    • Diseases are the symptoms.
    • Cognitive decline (dementia) can be reversed by identifying the triggers.
