I’d like to tell you a little bit about what makes the Martin Clinic different
(Aside from the fact that we’ve been around since 1911)
AND I think the best way to do that is by telling you a quick story…
At 2:20am on April 15, 1912, the impossible happened.
The unsinkable ship sank. The most celebrated ship in history sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic.
Now, I’m sure that you’ve heard the story of the Titanic before.
As the titanic sailed into the ice field… The ship had received SEVEN warnings of impeding danger that day from other ships who were in the midst of the ice…
But the Titanic chose to ignore ALL of them.
At 11:00pm that Sunday night, the wireless operator, John Philips, received a direct warning from the California, which was less than 10 miles away in the midst of VERY large ice.
But, John Philips was tired.
He had been communicating all day.
So, rather than listening to the WARNING from the California, he casually tapped back… “Shut up, shut up, I’m busy.”
Forty minutes later, the Titanic collided with a massive iceberg. AND within a couple of hours, the ship sank, killing over 1500 passengers and crew members.
Now, why am I telling you this story?
I believe that this story can be a great example to us. You see, just like the Titanic had been receiving warnings all day from other ships… Our bodies are doing the same thing to us RIGHT NOW.
The problem is…
…we either aren’t paying attention to the warning signs …don’t know what the warning signs even mean.
Or worse yet, we ignore them altogether.
I strongly believe that a person doesn’t go to bed healthy one night and wake up diseased the next.
It doesn’t work that way.
There is a road between health and disease…
AND our bodies will give us warning signs along the way that something is wrong.
Here’s the thing…
Many of the warning signs may seem small, even insignificant.
AND these warning signs will often be overlooked…
Even by most doctors.
BUT, the ‘tiny’ warning signs are actually a BIG deal.
Because they are giving you advanced notice of potential disaster.
What is an example of a warning sign that is almost ALWAYS overlooked by doctors but is extremely frustrating for patients…
When your energy isn’t what it used to be, or your tired all the time…
That is a warning sign. Something has changed inside your body. Something is ‘off’. I don’t take those warning signs lightly.
I developed a biomarker testing system to help determine what is causing the warning signs… AND more importantly, how to fix it. That’s how I practice healthcare.
