Fear of death drives the domination of a failed medical system which more often than not does more harm than good.
With iatrogenic - doctor or medical induced - death as the third biggest killer in the US and rising in other developed nations, mainly from drugs, something is very, very, very wrong with an industry which claims to abide by 'doing no harm.'
With serious and chronic disease on the rise, faster in children, in the developed world and worst in the US, something is very, very wrong.
The latter option is the best one because there are valuable skills in Allopathic medicine, particularly where a mechanical approach can be applied such as reconstructive surgery, but on most other counts it is an abject failure. Medication for life or cutting bits off is not healing and rarely cure.
Modern medicine has become like a religion with massive 'temples' to its power, profit and prestige being built bigger and bigger and more and more. If Allopathic medicine did what it says it does those hospitals would decrease and grow smaller and people would spend less and less time at the doctor. The opposite is true. Health is less common and disease is more common and it costs a fortune to no good end.
Excerpt: Yet that is the exactly the state of medicine today as we face the tsunami of lifestyle-related chronic diseases that will cost our global economy $47 trillion over the next 20 years. These diseases are eminently preventable and treatable, and yet currently, every year, they kill twice as many people around the world as infectious diseases do.
As we spend more and more for health care, we get less and less. America has worse health care outcomes and lower life expectancy than almost every other developed nation. As we invent new drugs and procedures, chronic diseases continue to rise in America, and -- as developing countries adopt the worst of our food and culture -- around the globe.
Chronic diseases affect one in two Americans and account for 80 percent of our health care costs. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases, digestive disorders, dementia, allergies, asthma, arthritis, depression, ADD, autism, Parkinson's disease, hormonal problems and more -- they cause endless suffering and drain our financial resources.
