Let us examine our INCORRECT attitudes:
a.. We identify any & all abnormalities
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.
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
c. We believe all lab tests and
X-rays & Scanning tellsus of the problems in the body.
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
The body is always right in its action,response andManifestation.
e.We believe Modern Medicine can reverse
nearly a century of research and billions of dollars spent Cancer , Diabetes,
Heart attacks, Strokes are still
Modern medicine has only improved the diagnosis by expensive Catscans, MRI’s ,Scopes
all Orifices, but very little significant change has resulted in reversing these diseases.
f.We believe that conventional medical thought is right.
heart attacks patients have to be in ICCU, then why in the US have trails shown that patients treated at home do
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
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?
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
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.
j.We believe that Doctor is GOD.
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
of disease are harmful , Ageing is abnormal & illness is a adverse happening.
k. 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!”
