SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE DO NOT NECESSARILY CORRELATE WITH LEVELS OF HEALTH

Human health is extremely complicated and everyone is different. The factors which cause disease can also be very complicated. Symptoms can also be very confusing. If you are following a successful treatment then it is quite possible that symptoms could get worse for some time before they get better. For example inflammation is a basic healing mechanism but it causes pain, so the pain could increase before the body successfully cures itself. A patient with acute and dramatic symptoms of disease may in fact be more healthy than a patient with no symptoms. It is not possible with present medical tests to accurately determine a patient's level of health. It could be that nobody in this country is in optimum health.
