Is that the absolute correct thing to do, doctors are humans too, limited by experience, knowledge and tech advancements. The chances that your doctor may be using you for trial and error to patch you up in phases with medicines he is paid to prescribe.
We are not trying to typecast all doctors here or to play down the importance of their profession, we are just bringing to light what may be happening and what you probably are aware of.
What does one do when they are unwell?
- They go to an allopathy doctor
- The doctor ask them to do many tests
- Basis the results, you are put on medication for a couple of months
- Checks if the meds worked
- Back to step 2
In parallel to this process what happens is your friends and family suggest you a bunch of alternate therapies. In desperation of getting better sooner, you go and try out Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Acupressure, Acupuncture and Yoga.
While you are trying to juggle with all these health sciences and their jargon and their constant bad mouthing of each other, you are left like a confused lab rat and still unwell.
The point we are trying to make here is that the ultimate aim of all these sciences is to get you well but in their competition, you are the loser, if they just stopped competing and started complementing each other, all would progress and everyone would get better faster than they are getting now, with lesser side effects.
Illustrating this with an example,
A member of our team was on holiday in Egypt. She fell ill having a sore throat and a temperature, a regular fever. Instead of popping in a paracetamol, something we do not even think before having, the locals there gave her hot water with a dash of lemon and some honey. Much better than a bitter medicine in taste and it took the same amount of dosage and time for her health to get back to normal.
Your doctor would never suggest this to you, because where is the fancy knowledge in that right.
Nature offers so many cures, to name a few, a kidney stone can be removed just taking a leaves of a plant. A person with less of hemoglobin can be advised to eat apples, beet root, and pomegranate. A depressed person can be asked to hear soothing music with yoga in an open space. All this actually WORKS.
Why can’t they all get together and cure in such a way that the person suffering is happy and rejuvenated.
Next time you visit your doctor, ask the doctor what is the root cause of the problem you never know your grandmother might just have a nuskha for you.
