Modern Medicine: Myths & Realities Mumbai India
Alternative Medicine Cure Nature Therapy Holistic Treatment Chronic Healing Clinic Mumbai India
Modern Medicine has made many advances & newer equipment has been invented, but have all these resulted in greater patient cure, let us examine?
1) The PATIENT is supposed to be patient with his illness and hence is so named. And not mistrust the wisdom of the body.
2) The DOCTOR is supposed to care for the patient, keep him reassured with his technical knowledge that the Body is always right in its response to the illness and to provide for the patient’s comfort during the processes of Birth, Growth, Ageing, Disease & Death
3) MEDICINES ARE:-
a) Poisons which kill bacteria by destroying Bacterial DNA and thus can also cause
Chemicals which provide symptomatic comfort to the patient eg.Pain Killers and are categorized into:.
Adverse side effects by acting on body cellular DNA eg. Antibiotics.
b) Substances which alter immune responses/ Processes and thus also effect body immunity eg. Steroids.
c) Miscellaneous Group. Of all these it is only worthwhile using symptom Relievers, that too occasionally.
d) Anticancer drugs which destroy cancer ’Cells’ as well as normal Cells eg. Chemotherapy.
4) DISEASE’s are illnesses which cause "DIS-EASE". A Cancer in the breast may not cause dis-ease.
A Heart attack causes only chest pain of 1 hr. Usually hypertension has no symptom. Gallstones And Kidneystones may be accidentally detected after the patient carries them for years without any Dis-ease. So are we right when we use the word?
5) Man is a mammal. There are so many inferior species under him, cats, dogs, Cattle, fish reptiles, insects etc., All these lower animals live life comfortably without doctors, dentists, labs. X-ray’s, medicines etc. They appear to be more comfortable in their illness and in their lives, whereas With all Our modern medical advances we appear to be LIVING IN FEAR & INSECURITY. What is really wrong with our Medical system?
Let us examine our INCORRECT attitudes:
a) We identify any & all abnormalities as Disease.
Even if they don’t cause dis-ease eg. Gallstones Kidney stones, Varicose veins, Piles, Tumors, skin infections etc are often asymptomatic
b) We also identify the diseased part as Foreign/Alien.
For eg: A Gallstone & Kidney stone is as good As a pavement stone. Lets get it removed even If it causes no trouble . A lump in the breast has to be removed irrespective of its nature. A Diarrhoea expells garbage which is not part of us, so lets stop the Diarrhoea.
c) We believe all lab tests and X-rays & Scanning tellsus of the problems in the body.
Actually these tests are letting us know about how well the body is coping with the disease Process. For Eg. If there is a severe infection. The blood WBC count which has risen to Fight the infections and the fever is to increase the immune response. We also believe that the lab tests are more important than the patients state of comfort or discomfort. So abnormal stress Test in a normal patient means bypass surgery. Abnormal lab tests alarm the doctor and this alarm is often transferred to the patient.
d) We also believe that the body is wrong and the doctor knows better:
Hence we expect the doctor to come and set the body right. The body is a Computer of the highest order and
The body is always right in its action,response andManifestation.
e) We believe Modern Medicine can reverse diseases.
After nearly a century of research and billions of dollars spent Cancer , Diabetes, Heart attacks, Strokes are still Irreversible. Modern medicine has only improved the diagnosis by expensive Catscans, MRI’s ,Scopes put Into all Orifices, but very little significant change has resulted in reversing these diseases.
f) We believe that conventional medical thought is right.
All heart attacks patients have to be in ICCU, then why in the US have trails shown that patients treated at home do better? For years we believed that milk is good for Ulcers, now it is considered bad for ulcers. Fifty years ago, heart attack patients were kept in bed for 6 months, now they return to work in 6 weeks. So our belief that conventional medical thoughts is right is proving to be wrong.
g) We are also governed by leading thoughts & ideas.
For eg. It is believed that smoking causes Lung Cancer. Why then all lung cancer patients are not smokers?
Why is it that all smokers do not develop lung cancer. ? Do we not question whether cancer is caused by carcinogens or because of cellular DNA changes? Despite the nobel prize winning discovery that cancer is due to cellular genetic events?
We believe that untreated cancer spreads from one site to another (Primary to Metastasis) How do people operated for early cancer then develop metastasis? Why are we governed by leading thoughts and ideas put forth by some scientist at some time in history.
h) We believe that medicine will cure illness.
Colds will be cured, Cancer will disappear, Diabetes will vanish and Hypertension will settle.
We don’t realise that medicine will only ease us, at the cost of creating some adverse effect elsewhere in the body .A Politician took chemotherapy for a harmless cancer with low malignant activity and has developed Kidney failure and is undergoing dialysis for life.
i) We believe that Doctor is GOD.
Even the Doctor likes to believe that as he feels omnipotent We believe so, because we don’t want to feel hopelessly lost against disease.We believe that all
Manifestations of disease are harmful , Ageing is abnormal & illness is a adverse happening.
j) We believe that Death is the most disastrous happening:
We believe death is an unnecessary tragedy of life, and intensely painful ,that it is evil, bad should be avoided at all costs. That the doctor will help us to combat/ delay it. We don’t realise that death is a necessary complement of life and that it is a painless release, the time decided by our DNA and out of control by the Doctor. So as is rightly said "If your time hasn’t come, not even the doctor can kill you!"
