To be or not to be healthy ? Is 100-percent health possible today, when

diseases overpower almost everybody and longevity is falling? This, at a

time when pharmacies are packed with medicines, people with extra sensual

perception appear on the television screen, alternative healing centres

have been opened.

The time has come to see what is what. Below is the story

of therapist Vladimir Konovalov, Ph.D. (Medicine). Without practice any

theory is nil. Twenty years of day-to-day practice have produced staggering

results: Konovalov knows how to handle even incurable cases. What lies

behind the NEW WAY OF THINKING IN MEDICINE which Vladimir Konovalov


The crisis of medicine on the threshold of the 21 St century is a bitter

reality facing both Russian and Western health care systems. The

wide-spread notion of Western medicine as of something basically better is

erroneous. ThereТs no difference IN PRINCIPLE between our rank-and-file

city hospital and the best clinics in the world.

The only difference is the

provision of instruments, medicines and service. MEDICAL THINKING at the

level of Уif there s a disease - there s a diagnosisФ and Уno disease - no

diagnosisФ, which could really make a difference between these institutions

is basically the same everywhere.

Moreover, the crisis of medicine is only one example of a crisis of

medicine is only one example of a crisis of civilisation and the acme of a

range of global issues facing humanity, from environmental to economic,

issues on which the survival of man as a species depends.

Medicine, with the exception of its important aspect hygiene is making no

contribution to the achievement of this aim. By a multitude of its

non-physiological means and methods it cultivates new diseases, rather than

promotes humankindТs genetic health.

Of course, achievements of modern

official medicine in the fields of resuscitation, surgery, combating of

epidemic diseases, grave ailments in acute form are indubitable. Another

plus is that many medicinal institutions are stuffed with new

super-instruments and pharmacies abound in Уwonder drugsФ. But, on the one

hand, a tremendous number of people feel bad though their polyclinics and

hospitals can discover no ailments; while on the other hand, it often

happens that a disease has been discovered but medicine has proved

helpless. Such ailments include psoriasis, eczema, allergies, bronchial

asthma, prostatite, ischemic heart disease, encephalopathies, grave

anemias, neurosis, peptic ulcer, menТs impotency, infertility, womenТs

masthopathies and myomas, etc.

Instead of Уhealth-oriented medicineФ official medicine has become

Уdisease-oriented medicineФ. Instead of putting man in good health, it only

removes pain and suppresses development of a disease - this is essentially

its goal and this is what its capabilities boil down to.

Regretfully, years of this approach to health have led to a situation in

modern medicine in which the emphasis is not on the doctorТs skills but on

instruments and the pharmaceutical industry, to manТs being actually

divided up between narrow specialists. The crisis of modern medicine as

disease-oriented medicine certainly does not diminish its achievements, nor

does it mean negation of narrow specialisation. But, preservation of the

METHODS and Technology of official medicine as they are today leads to a


What do we get as a result? Because we have no Уhealth-oriented medicine

we suffer from diseases. We can and must be healthy and sound. The answer

lies in an integral system medicine.

An integral approach is essentially a combination of everything best in

diagnostics and treatment methods in traditional (old Chinese, Indian),

non-traditional (modern) medicine and certain folk healing approaches.


do we get as a result? Because we have no "health-oriented medicine we

suffer from diseases. We can and must be healthy and sound. The answer lies

in an integral system medicine.

An integral approach is essentially a combination of everything best in

diagnostics and treatment methods in traditional (old Chinese, Indian),

non-traditional (modern) medicine and certain folk healing approaches. How

do we switch to integral medicine? It's not so easy as it seems. A mere sum

of means and methods- swallowing a pill and an herbals preparation,

followed by two or three Herbal teas and self-suggestion- is not enough for

good health. This is not what is meant by integral, or system medicine.

What is crucial is not subtraction but interaction of all sorts of

medicine. Human health depends not only on absence or presence of

diseases, but on harmony between the body, spirit and consciousness,

absence or presence of finer-than-disease disturbances- hereditary

weakness of organs, dysfunction, pre- and post- illness conditions. A

combination of fine disturbances undermines the health of man. This is why

methods of traditional medicine help to reveal and remove hidden multiple

disturbances. Modern medicine practically cannot do that, because its

diagnostic arsenal is always directed towards revealing and correcting

diseases alone.

Thus, traditional and non- traditional medicines look at human health

from contradicting each other, they organically combine and are integrated

from both a diagnostic and treatment standpoint.

Integration of traditional and non- traditional medicines is not a goal

approach of diagnostics and treatment.

Looking at man his health from different aspects and different provides a

three- dimensional picture as a complex and cognisable system. Only such a

systematic approach allows individualisation, prediction and a disease-

prevention trend in medicine, treatment of man instead of disease, of the

root cause instead of the consequences.

Only such an approach makes it

possible to understand that everybody has his own cause for any disease- a

cause for allergy and psoriasis, ischemic heart disease, polyarthritis,

paradontosis, prostatite, balding, bronchial asthma.

Physicians, who have long been talking of an individual approach, will

be indignant. What is an individual approach as they understand it?

Take for comparison s sake two allergic cases. At any allergy centre a

patient will be taken through allergic tests to determine his or her own

individual set of allergens. Then an anti- allergy preparation will be

chosen which suppresses the allergy in this particular person, in a dose

which corresponds to this person s age. Then he Сll take a course of

hyposensibilisation to the discovered allergen. And then doctors will tell

the patients to avoid contact with his specific allergens- this is what is

called an individual approach.

Put yourself in the shoes of patients. All of them go on living with

their allergies, which as a rule develop into polyallergies. Allergens are

encountered at about every step and cannot be avoided. Mind you that anti-

allergic preparations are not harmless.

What is a truly individual approach and system of disease prevention?

Above all, it has to be found out why this particular patient is allergic

to what thousands of other people are not? Many will object to this and

say that that s the problem and this is just what modern medicine cannot

do. In this article I mean to say that such opportunities exist, but they

cannot be translated into reality within the old four corners of the old

way of thinking.

I mean to say that diagnostics should be carried out in a way which permits

the discovery of ailments and finer disturbances. Then a set of these

disturbances should be analysed from the positions of system clinical

thinking and conclusions drawn on the hidden complex root cause of allergic

susceptibility in any particular case.

Then, using methods and means which

can correct less- than- disease disturbances, the root case should be

attacked. This will make the patient like everybody around him: allergies

around him are many, but he does not respond ( rather gives due response)

to them, because the disturbances in his body through which once permitted

the allergic reaction nave been eliminated.

This method, with variations, works on the majority of other diseases as

well and is this writer s know-how.

Only discoveries, based on an integral system approach to health, in each

particular case of the hidden system root- cause of sufferings, makes it

possible to cure many diseases earlier deemed incurable or intractable.

Thus, only critical analysis of entire medicine gives an idea to what

health protection should be directed and what the methods are for creating

a medicine of the future.

possible. First, further development and improvement of a narrowly-

specialised Уdisease-oriented medicineФ to be transformed into a system

Уdisease medicineФ. Second, formation and development of a Уhealth-

oriented medicineФ. The boundary between two directions should be made

increasingly more conventional and blurred.

For development of "disease-oriented medicine", or an integral system

medicine, the following will be needed: changes both in people's attitudes

towards medicine and in the professional thinking in physicians;

preparation of a core of physicians; development of a new generation of

medical diagnostic and treatment instruments; formation of a new area in

the pharmaceutical industry that would meet the requirements of such a

system of medicine.

Implementation of such a program would drastically change the situation as

regards health- care, resolve many of its present problems and break the

deadlock over many situations. Most importantly, it will preserve the human

species as a physical, spiritual and intellectual entity.

The Уhealth- orientedФ program should be state- supported. Particularly,

a treatment- diagnostic scientific- pedagogical centre of integral system

medicine should be established, mass media bodies should take co-ordinated

participation in the program. Implementation of the program cannot be

limited by the framework of only a region or a country, it should be world-

wide.( RIA Novosti, 1995).
