Default Something Wrong With Western Medicine

Along the same lines of the above. And yes, we often have a need for major medicine and even surgeries, but for Prevention, I go other routes.

I continue with my thinking on medicine,. healing, MONEY, does Pharma really care??? yes mostly about their bottom lines. We need to do all we can for ourselves and stay out of so many drugs from the labs that come with a Long List of possible side effects. I hear so many are "getting it" and pushing away due to damage so many have experienced with the drugs...

Well I'll post stuff as things come to mind, and I'm alone on posting too but I'll talk to whomever. The PRP/Stem Cell MD I hear every Saturday on the radio is forever talking about overuse of drugs, surgeries gone wrong, and so many mis-diagnosises out there in the medical world and he's a longtime MD.

My Mood: Something Wrong With Western Medicine

I recently read this interesting and timely book. The author seems to be saying that many times, "less is more"--that here in the US we are doing too much for our health and survival sometimes.

Atul Gawande, MD, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End (2014). The book deals with the end-of-life experience rather than the tendency to overprescribe drugs that a person could get along without but he makes some important points.

Dr. Gawande is in favor of more knowledge about when to back off, when to let a patient live out the remaining time in peace, without having to endure the many hospitalizations and ICU stays, surgeries and other procedures that are so often part of a seriously ill person's life towards the end.

He also stresses that sometimes the patient would prefer palliative care to the more drastic measures that could be taken to save his life, but the family, in their zeal for keeping their loved one alive as long as possible, manage to overrule that preference.

He's not saying that people should opt for euthanasia or anything of the sort. He is saying that nowadays high-tech medicine makes it possible to prolong life but it's in ways that don't add up to life as we think of it, and there are times when it would be more merciful not to resort to those procedures even though they are available.

Agate, there are Many MD's that go against the grain of the Western Medicine Standard of Care protocols and sadly and pathetically too many have lost their medical licenses for their truths....

My gut just tells me so strongly my sister would be alive today if not for the huge number oif every drug that came out for MS or that her doctors wanted to practice on her.
