Medicine or Charlatanism?
beyond any doubt many theoretical questions of health and
disease which traditional health professionals and unconventional
medicine alike are unable satisfactorily to settle. But if that be
admitted, then it is certainly not in the public interest that drug
treatments and operations should be accepted as only and the last words
in medical science.
It is also true that numerous members of the unconventional medicine
and people or companies involved in production of simple and natural
remedies frequently face accusations of charlatanism, and are subjects
to persecution by medical associations and government agencies.
If the medical profession were all that it is supposed to be, it might
be good that the recommended natural remedies and alternative reformer
should suffer in solitude while all experiments and methods were
subjected to adequate tests and criticism. If the government agencies
and associated medical professionals enviously guarded the public from
charlatanism while they impartially investigated every logic fresh
discovery, the true reformer and general public would welcome the
protection unfolded by other fair professionals and everybody affected
would benefit. Pure, science should dictate whether a medication gets
approved, not profits and politics.
It must not be forgotten that we owe many valuable discoveries of
medical science to qualified members of other professions, just as
discoveries of certain discoveries in science are made by people
working at other respective trades.
Did you ever
think about, or look for answers, on questions:
- What happened to the practice of
medicine, which for ages has been known as the “healing
- How come traditional medicine always
prefer to come up with
chemical substances which, in the form of medications, and when
injected into the blood, shall counteract the effects of disease?
- We all know that an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of
cure, so why they don't pay more attention to prevention of disease?
- If we live in modern democratic society,
how come government
officials can appoint (mostly at our own expense) doctors to perform
traditional medicine treatments, force the people who may have the
misfortune to contract a disease, which the doctors have not told him
how to prevent, and submit them to such treatments?
We know that some people just want to be fixed. The only way to quality
healthy life is to take full responsibility for your own health
requirements. You should engage more actively in your health
maintenance and healing process. Don't just wait to be fixed, there are
choices in health care today than ever before. Get involved and help
build your own health!
know and always keep in mind that most dangerous
type of charlatan is the licensed one." —Maya G.
