Nature of Medicine
Artwork credit to the Hybrid Collective
Two paradigms of thought are vying for control of the field of medicine.
They're not merely differing strategies seeking the same goal. They are entirely different worldviews - ways of interfacing with Reality itself - and they have entirely different goals.
One is meant to cultivate health, and heal ailments.
The other exists merely to advance the progress of technology, for technology's own sake, by exploiting our desire for health to win our consent and cooperation for projects and developments that have nothing whatsoever to do with health.
One is medicine - the other is the manifestation of technocracy - the ultimate villain of this world - into the field of medicine.
Technocracy makes medicine more complicated, and more dependent on hi-tech gadgetry and industrial infrastructure. It increases the prevalence of machines, and the degree to which we depend on them - and it does this for the sake of the machines themselves. It uses healthcare as a vehicle for its own advancement.
Because that's what technocracy does. That's what it is. And it doesn't care whether you're healthy or not - as long as technological complexity is advancing, and power is being further centralized.
The field of medicine was hijacked by technocracy. And it's time for us to rise up and take it back.
More Important Than Funding
While many of us were busy focusing our healthcare-related political activism on the question of how to fund medicine for those who can't afford it, few bothered to contemplate the messier (and more humbling) question of whether the practices we were fighting for the state to provide were actually medicine in the first place.
Is showering cancer patients with radioactive isotope decay really medicine?
Is bypass surgery really medicine, if the patient just goes home and resumes eating cheeseburgers?
Is depression really caused by a deficiency of SSRI pills? Or is it caused by lifelong immersion in a profoundly sick and emotionally vacuous society, covered in concrete and billboards, that fails to meet the most basic needs of its citizens - like the need for community, belonging, intimacy, purpose, and connection with Nature?
And if these technocratic "treatments" are not really medicine in the first place, then what's the point in a universal healthcare system providing them?
Identifying the correct paradigm of medicine is the first and most important aspect of any policy approach to healthcare.
Any policy, no matter how generous and well-intentioned, is counterproductive if it employs the wrong paradigm.
Before asking how to fund medicine, we first have to make sure we know what medicine actually is.
of Real Medicine
The human body - and indeed all Life - is an ancient, mysterious, infinitely complex, unpredictable, expectation-defying wonder.
No person understands it completely. Or even close to completely.
Therefore, Medicine must be approached with an attitude of humility, respect, and curiosity.
No matter how long someone has been studying or practicing - no matter how many degrees he has, or how many plaques adorn his office walls - and no matter how much authority he's been granted by institutions, in academia, in government, or in the media - and no matter how much knowledge he has - if he's not approaching each patient and condition with fresh curiosity and open-mindedness - if he's not still asking questions and re-evaluating his own beliefs - if he's not open to being proven wrong, to being surprised - if he doesn't know the value of Beginner's Mind - then he is not a doctor, and he is not practicing medicine.
And many doctors are no longer practicing medicine, even though they write prescriptions every day.
In the technocratic paradigm, "doctors" view their patients like machines, and themselves like technicians.
They view Life's complexity as finite, with a finite number of parts and possibilities. So much so, that instruction manuals can be written, and relied upon. And as long as the technician follows the manual, he can "fix" the patient.
The whole subject of medicine is approached from a standpoint of mechanical engineering.
When your car has a problem, you call the mechanic.
When you've got a problem, you call the doctor.
But should they be the same? Are machines living systems? Are living systems machines?
A problem must be inspected in the context of the totality, because no problem can be understood without understanding the system around it.
Nothing is isolated. And we must always remain open to the possibility that factors we didn't think were influencing the issue, are. And a proper doctor actively searches for them.
The Whole Body has to be part of the solution, in order to truly solve the problem at its deepest level.
Even if a problem shows up in a particular place in the body, it doesn't necessarily mean that it originated there. It clearly has something to do with that part, but the true origins of it may be more complicated than just that one particular place.
In mechanical engineering, however, all you have to do is fix the one part that's acting up - or, if it can't be fixed, replace it. You don't need to focus on any other parts (except maybe those immediately adjacent to it).
Sound like most doctors?
This is how the healthcare field found itself with "specialists" who know everything there is to know about a specific organ (or rather, everything they think there is to know about it), and pay zero attention to the rest of the body.
There's no need to know anything about the rest of the machine, as long as he/she knows what to do for the one part that "broke."
And this is because machines have finite complexity. Each machine has a finite and precise number of parts, because they're made on assembly-lines. Your computer has a finite number of parts. It might be in the thousands, if you include all the chips and stuff - but it's still finite.
And each part is a semi-isolated unit, with a specific, finite number of types of interaction it can experience with other parts.
Life is a dynamic system, wherein each part has an infinite number of potential relationships with every other part. In fact, there is no such thing as a "part" at all, because, there are no clear dividing lines between them. Where does your wrist end and your forearm begin? How many parts are there in a finger?
There are an infinite number of "parts".
3. The Role of Mind
The mind and body are connected intimately, and each must be deeply considered in the medicine for the other.
Even the distinction between them is not entirely real, as they're really one part of a greater system called the bodymind. Any attempt to fundamentally distinguish them is, in its most basic character, arbitrary, and reflects a lack of understanding of the true nature of medicine.
4. The Context of Society
Just as the condition of a cell can be understood only in the context of its tissue, and the condition of an organ can be understood only in the context of the total body, so too can the condition of the individual patient be understood only in the context of the society of which we're constituents.
If the society around us is sick, it's more difficult for us to be healthy, even with consistent personal discipline. There are some problems which individual medicine can only mitigate - and, in order to truly heal them, we have to heal together, as a community.
5. The Incompleteness of Science
The body of knowledge and belief, known as "science" is incomplete and imperfect - even when performed honestly. It's always this way, because that's its very nature - it always has room to develop a greater and more integrated level of understanding. Our current level is always imperfect. That's the very nature of science. And it's anti-scientific to refuse to acknowledge this.
Since scientific knowledge is incomplete, (and since there is also moral and financial corruption in academia)... the absence of empirical verification for a particular phenomenon (and/or the refusal of journals to publish such verification when it does exist), does not mean that such a phenomenon "doesn't exist".
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
Given #5, when we hear testimonies of things that we might deem "unproven" or "fantastical" or "pseudoscientific" we cannot dismiss them reflexively.
We don't necessarily have to believe in something, but we must be open at least to the possibility of it. Especially when someone swears up and down that they know it to be true. And especially when every culture in the history of the world, on every continent, factors it into their worldview, without exception.
And ***especially*** when those cultures outperform our own, both in personal health and ecological health. Maybe they know something. Science is, after all, not the only branch of epistemology. It's not the only way to gather knowledge.
7. The Role of Spirit
Given #6, we must be open to the possibility of phenomena outside our current model of physics to be influencing this universe, including health. We must be conscious of the role played by spirit/soul in our mental and physical health.
Technocratic medicalism denies the existence of the entire spiritual range of reality frequencies.
If it recognizes consciousness at all, it's as no more than an "epi-phenomenon" - an "accident" - of the brain. Essentially we are, in the words of Jamie Lannister:
"We're nothing but sacks of meat and blood, and some bone to keep it all standing."
Just walking lumps of cells. A stack of atoms, really - which just happens to be "carrying around" a mind, located on the top floor.
It views human beings not as Beings, but merely as bodies, which, in turn, are nothing more than very complex machines.
It emerges from the 17th Century philosophical lineage known as "materialism", which states that Reality consists of nothing but physical matter, and contains nothing else.
Other prominent figures in this era were Descartes, who posited that the Universe was one giant "clock", and every living being (us included ) is a just ticking according to preset parameters.
8. A Doctor Is a Teacher
Since many diseases are manifestations of inner mental/spiritual conflict or imbalances, a proper doctor is a teacher who can walk a patient through the process of self-reflection and introspection to find out the true origins of the illness, to cure the issue at its roots, by healing the soul.
Visionary flora play a prominent and indispensable role in this process of self-discovery. They are not "alternative" medicine. They are medicine.
In fact, the word "doctor", which comes from Latin, literally means "teacher." He/she teaches you how to analyze your own environment and lifestyle choices, to help you understand the causes of their ailment.
Essentially a doctor doesn't "heal you" - instead she teaches you to heal yourself.
But in the technocratic paradigm, it's all about actions by the doctor - adjustments that he or she does, to you. From the outside.
And this reflects its origins in the materialist philosophy's exaltation of physical matter - the world outside - as the "only reality", dismissing the very existence of the world inside.
It views healing as something that must be obtained.
A product or service to consume. An extension of capitalism.
But naturopathic / holistic medicine acknowledges the world inside, in addition to the one outside, and focuses intently on the relationship between the two.
And so, if disease shows up, we entertain the possibility that it could be arising from within the patient.
It's a condition, or challenge, from the inside, manifesting in the physical body on the outside.
For example, if a person has atherosclerosis (heart disease), we'll try to figure out how and why the person got into such a condition in the first place.
What choices have they been making in their life, leading to this condition?
Have they been consuming animal products every day?
Beef and cheese and all of that?
Despite these industries being extremely cruel?
Have they been building up a lot of karma from contributing to the torture of animals?
Could that be manifesting in the form of their clogged arteries?
After all, the heart is the plexus of compassion - and if a person suppresses his/her compassion instinct regularly, and suppresses their spiritual heart, then could this have something to do with the condition of their physical heart?
This is a deeply inconvenient and humbling set of questions to ask. To some people, it's downright offensive.
"How dare you suggest that I made myself sick!"
"What an insensitive thing to suggest!"
"Stop blaming the victims!"
And this is where the allopathic / technocratic paradigm rushes in to "save the day", by helping the patient evade these questions.
It invented the idea of genetic determinism, to convince people that their diseases were written into them from birth, and there's nothing they could have done to cause any of it - and, more importantly, that there's nothing they can do to change any of it.
And then, to fill the hope void back up again, it rolls out the technology.
It builds a technological apparatus to "patch" the problem, so that you won't have to engage in any of that messy introspection. It shields you from self-knowledge. It absolves the ego of responsibility.
And it pursues that goal with more zeal than the goal of actually healing you!
It's more of a talisman against humility than it is "medicine."
Instead of teaching you how your choices led to your condition, it will just give you some pills, cut you open, rearrange your tissues, patch you up, and send you on your way.
It even goes as far as to treat disease as a foreign invader - an entity in and of itself - which must be "defeated." You can hear this in phrases like "Fight cancer."
And to "fight" this "war", it deploys the big guns, in the form of chemotherapy, which is a misnomer, as it is not a therapy in any way shape or form. It is poison.
The doctors admit this. They don't dispute the assertion that showering someone with nuclear radiation and pumping their blood full of toxins does not improve their health. It simply kills. It kills everything in its path. And the theory rests on the medieval, ghoulishly simplistic hope that the disease - the cancer cells - will die faster than the rest of the patient.
It's not medicine. It's violence.
9. Health As Continual Cultivation
Health is not merely about waiting for diseases to come along and then addressing them once they show up, but, rather, about ***cultivating health***, and doing it constantly, as a matter of lifestyle.
What's known as Preventive Medicine should really just be called "Medicine", while the thing technocrats call "medicine" should really have a qualifier term attached to it - perhaps "postventive." If we really want to be accurate with our language.
If a doctor is a real doctor, then 90%+ of his/her words with patients should be about how to cultivate health - not just "fight disease."
The "fighting" part should still be there, for when needed, ready to be called upon - but not as the primary line of defense.
The response to the "coronavirus" has this principle completely reversed. In fact, it's worse than reversed, because it doesn't even acknowledge the existence of the preventive strategy, at all.
Not once has the word "nutrition" emerged from the lips of Dr. Fauci during all of 2020 (nor in his entire published career), nor from any prominent medical bureaucrats, nor from the vaccine-kingpin cum "world's leading epidemiologist", Bill Gates. Not one "expert" on TV has mentioned it.
Haven't you noticed? In politics and on television, there's a huge debate about healthcare, but no debate whatsoever about health?
The only question you ever hear asked by the corporate media is, "who pays for the medicine?"
But never "Why people are so sick in the first place?"
Nor the term "immune system." Can you imagine directing a public response to an "infectious disease", without mentioning the terms "immune system", or "nutrition" - at all - ever?
These quacks have said nothing about nutrition, nothing about exercise, nothing about how the immune system works, and nothing about the importance of time in Nature.
All they've said to us, this entire time is, "Shut up, sit down, stay inside, stay on your couch, keep watching TV, and wait, passively, for the vaccine."
It's like they don't actually care about our health.
It's like this isn't really about a virus at all.
In fact, everything about the coronavirus response espoused by major governments and medical associations has been wrong - so wrong that it's laying bare, at long last, the bankruptcy, hollowness, corruption, cruelty, and grotesquery of the technocratic medical paradigm for all to see.
Everything they're doing is not only not helping, but making it worse.
#ventilators - when we need blueberries+broccoli.
#SocialDistancing instead of love.
#lockdown instead of exercise.
If the same paradigm keeps steering, off the cliff we go.
Theyre wrecking society to save bodies because they don't understand that bodies are constituents of society, and there wont be bodily health in a fascist totalitarian world with mass-censorship, irrationality, poverty, and starvation.It's like they're doing chemo on all of society. Just as chemo kills the body and its cancer, aiming to kill the cancer just a little bit faster than it kills the body... so too is the lockdown strategy killing the whole society while hoping to kill the virus just a little bit faster.
In both cases, they ravage the total system to fix a constituent of the system, because they don't recognize the total system as a system - but merely as a machine, a sum of disparate parts. Their minds are that disconnected from the realities of this universe.These people should not be leading the response.
We let them get away with their quackery for all these years because we could always opt out, for oursekves. But now, medical fascism has begun to force the technocratic paradigm upon us, non-consensually, backing up its agenda by the armed force of the state.It's no longer something we can ignore or tolerate. The technocratic medical industrial complex has bitten off more than it can chew. This is its Waterloo.
Pharma's Last Stand
The coronavirus fiasco is the Waterloo of technocratic medicalism.
The natural paradigm is 1000 times older, but the technocratic paradigm has 1000 times more money, and also controls almost all bureaucrats in almost all government medical agencies in almost all countries, as well as almost all personalities on almost all TV networks and almost all newspapers, and is quickly gaining the power to censor its predecessor on social media.
The problem, before 2020, was that most of us didn't notice how evil, and how diametrically opposed to health it was, because there was a time-lag between cause (the treatments) and effect (their failure to make us healthy). The wrongness of its treatments showed up months, and even years, after their application. A cancer patient getting chemo might die from it - but the doctors could always blame it on the cancer. A heart patient could finally keel over, after numerous surgeries and pharmaceutical regimens - but the doctors could always blame it on "not enough pills and surgeries."
There was always a lag, and it camouflaged the true nature of what they were doing.
But now, thanks to the coronavirus and the idiotic, technocracy-on-steroids policies our medical "authorities" have imposed on us, this lag has shrunk to the scale where we can see the causes leading to the effects in real time, right before our eyes.
The fruits of our collective ignorance are finally ripening, in such a spectacular fashion, it's become impossible to ignore.

Two paradgms and how we know which one is right
They've been fighting for dominance for decades, and the 2020 pandemic hysteria has brought this struggle to the foreground in mass-consciousness. The world is currently witnessing the climax of an ancient, largely hidden war, finally spilling out of its containers, the disguises falling away as both sides make their last-ditch plays.
Finally, the fight has captured the attention of the world. And this is good news.
Very good news.
Since the conflict is no longer hidden, it's going to be brought into mass-awareness, confronted, and processed - and then resolved, once and for all.
And it's obvious which paradigm is the right one. Think about this:
Although the technocratic paradigm has performed a lot of wondrous feats, it has also constructed the maddest society in history, and pushed our planet to the brink of ecological collapse.
Indeed, it has eradicated some contagious diseases, extended life expectancy, and solved a lot of other specific problems. And looking beyond medicine, to other fields, it has dazzled us with its cleverness.
It's given us cars, and TV's, and airplanes, and space shuttles, and iPhones, and the biggest and most diverse selection of entertainment ever available. It has hypnotized us with a stupefying array of shiny toys, flashing lights, and things that go whirrrrrrr and boooooom and weeeeeeeeeee!! But it has also produced a society in which the majority of people have debilitating mental illness, and cannot function (or even resist the urge to commit suicide) without daily psychiatric pills.
The technocratic paradigm has achieved so many wondrous things... but it has done so at an enormous cost - a cost so high, it's poised to outweigh - and even nullify - all of that impressive progress. How can we consider such a paradigm "successful", when it's destroying the fundamental life support systems of this planet, and thus endangering the survival of its own civilization? What does it matter how many flashy toys it produces, or how much it extends the life expectancy of the individual, if it destroys its own planet, and thus itself, along with all of humanity? The technocratic materialist paradigm has a terrible track record when you consider the fact that its whole history was one crescendo towards mass-suicide.
It was a failed paradigm. And perhaps it's not wise to listen to a failed paradigm on the subject of medicine. Perhaps technocratic medicine is just as foolish as the rest of technocracy. And it's very important to answer these questions soon, because the technocratic paradigm is guiding the response to the coronavirus situation, which could determine the future course of human civilization itself.
And if we let our response to the coronavirus situation be guided by a failed paradigm - one with a fundamental misunderstanding of reality - it won't fix the situation - it'll make it worse. And maybe lead to a complete societal collapse. Or a totalitarian fascist nightmare dystopia, where medical police form the new Gestapo.
And up until now, its dominance over the field of medicine has been mostly unquestioned. Only a few people on the fringes, like naturopathic doctors, have questioned the reigning paradigm. And they've been marginalized and belittled and humiliated and ignored by most people.
And for a while, most of us were somewhat OK with this. We tolerated it. They weren't taking away our ability to practice our medicine - they were only denigrating it, with their words. We had an uneasy but stable detente. We would tolerate the technocratic paradigm reigning over other people's medicine as long as we got to keep our medicines. As long as choice remained.
Truth be told, they did make some attempts to come after our medicines - like with "Codex Alimentarius", which was an attempt to severely restrict herbs and other natural medicines by force of law, and censor all information from naturopathic healers, to prevent the population from learning about it. But we managed to hold those attempts at bay, and they (mostly) failed. All in all, we've been able to practice mostly unmolested, with the notable and extremely important exception of people working with psychoactive herbs and fungi - the visionary flora.
Even though many of us fought, we didn't fight like our lives depended on it. We always could relax, knowing that the two paradigms would respect each other's territory, and we'd be able to continue practicing ours, and the public would still have choice in which one they wanted to follow.
But now, because of the coronavirus, and the global debut of medical fascism in response to it, we no longer have these excuses. Technocratic doctorism has now begun to force itself on us.
They have forced us into a lockdown that's collapsing the economy and demolishing public health as it prevents the activities necessary for health to flourish. It has forbidden us from socializing, from exercising, and from getting sunlight - all things that are central to immune function. Quite ironic that they're engineering a mass-immuno-suppression in the name of fighting a "virus", no?
They want us all inside our houses, all day, shivering in fear on our sofas, as the TV pumps us up with industrial-strength panic-porn. And what does chronic anxiety do? It suppresses the immune system. It sends blood from the internal organs to the extremities - the arms and legs - because, in our evolutionary past, "fear" usually meant there was something to run from - a tiger, a lion, a wolf pack, and so forth. Chronic anxiety keeps all the blood in our limbs, and away from our internal organs. It demolishes our health - including our immune systems. Quite ironic that they want us shivering in fear, suppressing our immune systems, in the name of fighting a "virus", no?
In their frenzy to fight a virus, they're engineering the greatest mass-immuno-suppression in history.
This is what you get when you allow a technocratic medical paradigm to reign.
Soon the supermarket shelves could be empty, due to the economic collapse. In poorer countries, they're already empty. The WHO predicts that 200 million people in developing countries will starve to death as a result of the economic collapse brought on by the lockdown. 200 million people! Not from the virus - but from the starvation that the "oh so humanitarian" doctors just engineered - on purpose!
This is what you get when you allow technocracy to corrupt medicine.
They are not looking at the bigger picture. They are not viewing the coronavirus within the context of the total body of society. Their minds are literally incapable of doing so. In order to become doctors, they had to endure decades of training in medical schools to sabotage their ability to think holistically. As a result, all they're capable of seeing is their own narrow field, and they're completely oblivious to how their actions affect the greater whole.
We put these people there. We, as a society, elevated these people into positions of power and respect. We did this. We did it through our ignorance and complacency. All of our society's choices that we've been making in the past decades are now coming back to present their fruits to us. "The chickens are coming home to roost." And we're seeing, with an ever-shrinking lag-time, the relationship between all these causes, and their effects.
These lockdowns are destroying the health of the body of society. And it's not going to stop there. If the technocratic paradigm continues to rule, then the lockdowns are just the beginning. The next step is the forced vaccinations. They're going to roll out a vaccine that they've just developed, and compel everyone to take it, under force of law. There will be no testing. Normally, vaccines have to go through 10 years of trials and studies before they're available for public consumption. But they're just going to roll this thing out, and everyone will just be expected to take it immediately. And they're going to force it. It will be mandatory. That's what they want to do.
Now this might not come to pass - if we resist. If we resist hard enough, and overthrow these people, then they won't have a chance to enact this dark plan. But if we allow them to continue ruling us, then it's only a matter of time. And if we submit to the current lockdowns, our submission will embolden them, and they they will continue, and the next step will be the forced vaccination of every human being on this planet. You won't get to say no.
They might not hold you down and cuff you while they needle you - it might not be that brutish - but they'll find ways to force you into it. They'll start by saying, "if you want to renew your driver's license, you have to provide proof that you've been immunized", and you'll need an "Immunity Passport" to prove your immunization status.
The "passport" will then become necessary for an ever-growing list of activities.
Boarding a plane.
Crossing international borders.
At some point, you'll need it in order to leave your house. The lockdown will not be lifted until everyone is vaccinated. Bill Gates (the vaccine kingpin) and Dr. Anthony Fauci, are on VIDEO admitting this. But it won't stop there.
Does this sound like fun yet? Does this sound like the type of society you want to live in? The type you'd like for your children?
This is what you get when you allow technocratic doctorism to corrupt the field of medicine.
This is the direction in which the technocratic doctorists are leading us. But...
Since the conflict has finally come to a head, we have the opportunity to shift the paradigm entirely. This is the hour in which Nature finally defeats technocracy.
Healthcare - and more accurately, health - is the foundation of everything else in society. It affects our very ability to analyze problems. An unhealthy body makes an unhealthy mind - which, in turn, produces unhealthy solutions to problems. All those other issues you care about? The economy and the human rights and the animal rights and the environment and ecology and poverty and war and peace and all of it... we need healthy minds to solve it.
When we free medicine form the clutches of technocracy, and have real medicine again, then our health as individuals and as a society will skyrocket, and we'll finally have the thinking abilities to solve the other problems - like ecological destruction, and war, and poverty, everything else.
Shifting the paradigm on medicine is the beginning of the total liberation of humanity and the planet.
1. The holistic paradigm looks first at the person, in total, and seeks to learn what is going on overall. What is going on in the other organs and organ systems? What's going on in the gut? In the microbiome? In the spine? And especially, in the mind? What lifestyle is this person living? What choices have they been making? What spiritual issues are they dealing with? What might their lessons be, that their soul is trying/needing to learn? What challenges are they facing to learning these lessons? Are they stagnating in one or more aspects of that process? Could this stagnation be the reason why the disease showed up? Could their soul be seeking a way to force the issue into awareness, by manifesting it into an unignorable physical ailment? How can we facilitate this learning process to actualize, so that the physical ailment will no longer be necessary? How can we help this person get in touch with their deeper self, their inner body, their heart and soul, to bring forth the healing, to activate the healing process that's already within them? How can we help this body heal itself?
It's not the organ that's sick - it's the body. The person. And healing the organ proceeds from healing the person.
2. Meanwhile, the technocratic paradigm will look only at the manifestations of the disease (the symptoms), compare them with lists of symptoms they have in a book, generate a label to give the ailment, frame it as an independent actor, a force all its own - and then go to war with it. Militantly atheist and materialist, without even the slightest modicum of tolerance toward anything mysterious or outside the current corpus of peer-reviewed scientific consensus, adherents of this paradigm fail to see the distinction between living systems and technology - between Creation and artifice - and therefore interpret it all like Newtonian physics, where an action can only be opposed by an equal or opposite reaction. Instead of cultivating health, they seek merely to defeat disease. Instead of honoring and nurturing the magnificent miracle that stands before them, so that that miracle might flourish (and in flourishing overcome what ails it), they instead reach for a wrench as if they're repairing an automobile part.
The technocratic doctor thinks he heals you.
The holistic doctor teaches you to heal yourself.
In fact, he doesn't even do that, because you already know how to - you merely forgot. And he reminds you.
The word doctor means teacher.
When was the last time your "doctor" taught you anything?
If he doesnt teach you anything, hes not a doctor - hes a quack. If he's treating you like an automobile with a broken part, that's quackery. If he prescribes pharmaceuticals without seeking the source of the underlying problem, and merely seeks to manage symptoms, then he is aiding and abetting your self-destructive ego in avoiding the introspection necessary to truly heal, and he is therefore perpetuating sickness. And doctors who perpetuate sickness are quacks. That is the definition.
And the medical-industrial establishment is built on this quackery.
And they have the gall to accuse holistic practitioners of the very same thing. They call holistic medicine "alternative."
No. The ancient way of 40,000 years is not alternative.
It's time for holistic medicine people to push back. We've played defense for quite long enough. We must now go on the offense, and take down the corrupt, evil technocratic medical industrial complex.
Never has doing so been more urgent. As medical fascism takes shape in the coronavirus hysteria, it's now or never. If we don't defeat the technocratic paradigm, it will defeat us - with catastrophic consequences for humanity and all Life.
The technocratic-allopathic paradigm that has corrupted Medicine for 100+ years is steering our response to this crisis.
The Three Levels of Focus in Medicine
The first level is called allopathy. It focuses on disease.
It's like a sentry, sitting atop a castle, scanning the countryside for signs of invaders. Once it spots them, it mobilizes the army to attack and defeat them. Then, once they're defeated, it goes back to watching.
This approach makes sense when dealing with infectious diseases: bacteria, viruses, and the like. After all, this is exactly what our own immune systems do!
But the problem arises when we apply it to non-infectious diseases, like cancer, cardiovascular disease, and all the other long-term degenerative problems that constitute over 95% of our society's "healthcare" expenditures. The fact is, this militaristic "search and destroy" attitude does not work on anything non-infectious. You can't "hunt down and kill" a degenerative disease, because there is nothing to kill. There is no outside invader.
The problem is arising from inside. The bodily system has stopped being healthy. And when it stops being healthy, the answer is not to "find something to kill" - it's to make the body healthy again.
Allopathy focuses solely on destroying disease, but it has almost nothing to say about creating health. And even when it does make forays into this "positive" domain, it takes an extremely blocky and pixellated view of it, by breaking everything down into isolated units, while ignoring the totality of the mind-body system. It tries to find a specific vitamin, hormone, or neurotransmitter that's in short supply, believing that once it finds out what's missing, it can simply add that thing - usually in pill form - and everything will be better again. When you think about it, it's really just a continuation of the same old "search and destroy" mindset; just, instead of seeking an invader, it's seeking a chemical imbalance - and then, once it finds the imbalance, it targets and destroys it!
It still doesn't look at the mind-body as a whole unit.
So the first correction to our healthcare system is to evolve past allopathy.
"So no one should use a regular doctor anymore?"
Not exactly. Allopathy can indeed be useful in a few scenarios, specifically infections and physical accidents and emergencies. If killer bacteria are waging war on you, then you need to defend yourself and fight back. Allopathy is great for that.
If you broke a limb, you need a cast to hold it in place while it heals. If you got shot, and there's a bullet lodged in you somewhere, you need a surgeon to go in and physically remove it. All perfectly valid reasons to use an allopathic doctor.
And if you've got a degenerative disease, and it's gotten so bad that it might causes death or major irreversible damage within a short time - like, a few hours or days - then you've got an emergency, and it may be necessary to have an allopathic intervention, just to stabilize your system. But, once you're stabilized, you'll need to look outside allopathy for long-term healing.
If everyone followed that simple advice, it would eliminate around 9/10ths of current healthcare expenditures!
Example, if someone has cancer, they can get chemotherapy for 500,000 dollars, or they can go to a shaman, eat some psilocybin mushrooms or peyote or ayahuasca, go on a vision quest, learn about how they created the sickness - what mental patterns led to the physical conditions, and what spiritual issues lay at the root of all of it, and come out of the experience CURED. For real. Not "symptoms under control." CURED. As in, no more symptoms to control.
"But those do cure. Proven track record."
No, the body cures. You have the blueprint in your DNA. The body heals itself.
Some people cure their own cancer without any allopathic treatment at all, no chemo. Allopathic pharmadoctors call it "spontaneous remission", and when you ask them why it happens, they just shrug their shoulders, call you a "pseudo-scientist", and get back to peddling drugs and radioactive isotopes.
The body can cure itself, and it does.
"But so can chemo."
No, the chemo didnt cure it - the body did. It just looks like the chemo did it bevause the person was getting chemo when the body cured itself! The body cured itself, and the pharmadoctors attribute it to the chemo, just because it was going on at the time! The cancer didnt go away because of the chemo - it went away in spite of the chemo. The chemo didnt cure anything.
How do you know that?
Because chemo cant cure anything! The entire notion is preposterous on its face. Chemo is poison. Poison cannot create health.
No, but it can kill cancer cells.
Yes, the cells - but not the cancer. Cancer is more than just its cells - it's an energy pattern, originating from the mind, and ultimately from issues within the spirit and soul. The abnormal cells come about because of that underlying energy pattern. Killing the cells doesn't cure the disease - it only destroys its manifestation - and only for the time being. If the underlying pattern is not healed, it will eventually manifest again.
And the way to do that is not with poison. It's with health. Poison and health are opposites. You can't create one via the other.
Some other very cost-effective ways for villages, townships, and cities to facilitate the health of the population:
1. Hiking Trails
Expanded network of hiking trails throughout wilderness areas adjacent to major population centers. ("construct" is a loose term, since no building is necessary - just clearing enough vegetation for a little footpath).
Additionally, municipalities expand their public bus routes to cover access to the trail-heads. Every person, even those living in inner-city ghettos, will have cheap, reliable bus access to Nature. Hiking is good for two reasons. It is exercise... but so much more than that. Nature has a positive, healing effect on all aspects of mind and body. Simply BEING in a forest, causes immediate improvements in mental state and well-being, including physiological changes like relaxed heart rate, easing of blood pressure, and a host of other benefits.
