I watched two very interesting videos today. Both perfectly align with my thoughts on the title of the website: clueless doctors. It is not so much that they are clueless–albeit many really are–but rather that they are helpless.
Quick: name one medication that cures any illness:___________________
If you cannot name one, nor can any doctor. So if doctors prescribe medications that do not cure your disease, what the heck are the medications for and why do we go to see a doctor anyway? Granted, on those occasions when you break a bone or need a surgery, yes, those may be “cures” but note those are not medicines. We do not have any medicine that cures an illness. What medicines take away are our symptoms until our bodies heal themselves.
The video above is by a doctor describing that doctors can only treat symptoms and why. All medicines treat only symptoms.
Medicines that may actually cure, like for example a new drug for Hepatitis C that was just FDA approved, are impossible to pass by the medical industry because of their price. And they are so expensive because once you are cured, you won’t need them anymore! So they must include in the price of each drug the cost of losing you as a future patient as well!
Here is another video, this one from TEDx, in which the doctor explains if medicine is really helping you or killing you.
I think medicines do more harm than good. I will enjoy your thoughts and comments!
Both videos are posted originally on http://failuretolisten.com/2014/04/06/wtf-is-wrong-with-medicine-tedx/ and I shared from there.
