“It is far more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” – Hippocrates
An endobiogenic evaluation is guided by this philosophy. This means knowing a lot about each person. In the endobiogenic medical evaluation, nothing is “nothing.”
Commonly in medicine, diseases are classified as a certain combination of signs and symptoms. For example, depression is both a symptom and a disease. High blood pressure is both a sign and a disease. But to really know a person means that you have a fundamental understanding of the physiology that is giving rise to those signs and symptoms. The endobiogenist has to know a lot about a person and their physiology and how things interconnect in this complex system of human life. There is a lot to be considered from diet, lifestyle, environment, stages of human development, psychological stress, seasons, genetics, epigenetics, gut microbiome, past trauma (physical and emotional), and so on. How is this level of complexity sorted out? In short, by having the right tools AND ESPECIALLY by paying close attention—to subtly, to nuance, to the patient.
The mission of The Linné Institute of Medicine is to restore resiliency, adaptability and fortitude in all areas intrinsic to our humanity: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This means giving patients the tools they need take control of their own health and to ultimately NOT need our services as often. We work to improve health fundamentally, NOT simply giving therapies to suppress symptoms of disease.
On a personal level, Dr. Johnson believes in “the law of the harvest,” meaning you “reap what you sow.” In practical terms, this means he will always give you more than what you paid for, never less.
