Physicians in the United States tend to concentrate on labeling diseases and prescribing medications and treatments that primarily treat symptoms. This has been an effective approach to narrow down, isolate, and treat specific problems in your body such as broken bones and infectious diseases.
For chronic conditions such as ADHD, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, treating just the symptoms without treating the underlying cause tends to be ineffective. In addition treating each condition with a new drug can lead to new symptoms from drug side effects and potentially dangerous drug and drug supplement interactions.
