      The body is always seeking homeostasis, that’s its job. Slow medicine requires paying attention to all areas of your life, not just the physical. It requires the person to take responsibility in their healing process. Patience is needed as well as change in unhealthy habits - and not just dietary. Unfortunately, our culture is too distracted, too busy, too disconnected for such an approach. Until enough people demand the slow medicine approach, it will always be out of network and expensive.
