Fitz Tropics Family Care/Pure Life is here to give you a lifestyle change. We are living longer, so we need to put more quality in our lives than simply existing. This can be achieved with balance of Bio/Psycho/Social care of each individual. For example, traditional medicine considers an ulcer a disease. We consider an ulcer a symptom of imbalance in either biological, psychological, or social factors.
We are not ‘Symptom-Treaters’, we try to get to the cause of the ulcer. Psychologically, you can be unhappy with you home life, your job, and your social life. Most people spend 80% of their life working at a job they dislike. The stress from that alone can contribute to ulcer formation.
Socially, if you are discontented with your lifestyle, you may drink alcohol to excess or self –medicate with other substances. Therefore, you wake up in the morning with a hangover and take too much ibuprofen which can also lead to ulcer socially. We hear Fitz Tropics Family Care/ Pure Life look at the whole person; we can assist patients with all three components.
