Modern Medicine: Myths and Realities



                            Modern Medicine has made many advances & newer equipment has been invented, but have all these resulted in greater patient cure, let us examine.


1.       The PATIENT is supposed to be  patient  with his illness and hence is so named.

And not mistrust the wisdom of the body.


2.       The DOCTOR is supposed to care for the patient, keep him reassured with his technical knowledge that the Body is always right in its response to the illness and to provide for the patient’s comfort during the processes of Birth, Growth, Ageing, Disease & Death


3.        MEDICINES ARE:-

        Chemicals which provide symptomatic comfort  to the patient eg.Pain Killers and are categorized into:.

a.       Poisons  which kill bacteria by destroying Bacterial DNA and thus can also cause

Adverse side effects by acting on body cellular DNA eg. Antibiotics.

b.       Substances which alter immune responses/ Processes and thus also effect body immunity eg. Steroids.

         d.    Anticancer drugs which destroy cancer  ‘Cells’ as well as normal Cells    eg. Chemotherapy.

c.       Miscellaneous Group.

         Of all these it is only worthwhile using symptom Relievers, that too occasionally.


4.       DISEASE’s are illnesses which cause “DIS-EASE”

A Cancer in the breast may not cause dis-ease.

A Heart attack causes only chest pain of 1 hr.

Usually hypertension has no symptom. Gallstones

And Kidney stones may be accidentally detected after the patient carries them for years without any Dis-ease. So are we right when we use the word?


5.     Man is a mammal. There are so many inferior                        

        species under him, cats, dogs, Cattle, fish

        reptiles, insects etc., All these lower animals live         

        life comfortably without doctors, dentists, labs.         

        X-ray’s, medicines etc. They appear to be more comfortable in their illness and in their lives, whereas with all  Our modern medical advances we appear to be LIVING IN FEAR & INSECURITY. What is really wrong  with our  Medical system?


        Let us examine our attitudes:


a.. We identify any & all abnormalities as Disease. 


 Even if they don’t cause dis-ease eg. Gallstones Kidney stones, Varicose veins, Piles,  Tumors,             skin infections etc are often  asymptomatic


b. We also identify the diseased part as Foreign/Alien.


 For eg: We feel a gallstone & Kidney stone is as good as a pavement stone. Lets get it removed even

If it causes no trouble . A lump in the breast has  To be removed irrespective of its nature.

A Diarrhoea expells garbage which is not part  Of us, so lets stop the Diarrhoea.


 c. We believe all lab tests and X-rays & Scanning tells us of the problems in the body.


Actually these tests are letting us know about How well the body is coping with the disease               Process. For Eg. If there is a severe infection. The blood WBC count which has risen to  Fight the infections and the fever is to increase the immune response. We also believe that the lab tests are more important than the patients state of comfort or discomfort. So abnormal stress Test in a normal patient means bypass surgery. Abnormal lab tests alarm the doctor and this alarm is often transferred to the patient.


d.We also believe that the body is wrong and the doctor knows better:


Hence we expect the doctor to come and set the body right. The body is a Computer of the highest order and The body is always right in its action, response and Manifestation.


e.We believe Modern Medicine can reverse diseases.


After nearly a century of research and billions of dollars spent  Cancer , Diabetes, Heart attacks, Strokes are still irreversible. Modern medicine has only improved the diagnosis by expensive Catscans, MRI’s  ,Scopes put into all orifices, but very little significant change has resulted in reversing these diseases.


f.We believe that conventional medical thought is right.

All heart attacks patients have to be in ICCU, then why in the US have trails shown that patients treated at home do better?

For years we believed that milk is good for ulcers, now it is considered bad for ulcers.

Fifty years ago, heart attack patients were kept in bed for 6 months, now they return to work in 6 weeks.

So our belief that conventional medical thoughts is right is proving to be wrong.


g. We are also governed by leading thoughts & ideas.

For eg. It is believed that smoking causes Lung Cancer. Why then  all lung cancer patients are not smokers?


Why is it that all smokers do not develop lung cancer. ?  Do we not question whether cancer is caused by carcinogens or because of cellular DNA changes? Despite the Nobel prize winning discovery that cancer is due to cellular genetic events?

We believe that untreated cancer spreads from one site to another (Primary to Metastasis) How do people operated for early cancer then develop metastasis

Why are we governed by leading thoughts and ideas put forth by some scientist at some time in history.


 h. We believe that medicine will cure illness.


Colds will be cured, Cancer will disappear, Diabetes will vanish and Hypertension will settle.

We don’t realise that medicine will only ease us, at the cost of creating some adverse effect elsewhere in the body .A Politician took chemotherapy for a harmless cancer with low malignant activity and has developed Kidney failure and is undergoing dialysis for life.

j.We believe that Doctor is GOD.

Even the Doctor likes to believe that as he feels omnipotent We believe so,  because we don’t want to feel hopelessly lost against disease. We believe  that all

Manifestations of disease are harmful, Ageing is abnormal & illness is a adverse happening.


k. We believe that Death is the most disastrous happening:

We believe death is an unnecessary tragedy of life, and intensely painful, that it is evil, bad should be avoided at all costs. That the doctor will help us to combat/ delay it. We don’t realize that death is a necessary complement of life and that it is a painless release, the time decided by our DNA and out of control by the Doctor. So as is rightly said “If your time hasn’t come, not even the doctor can kill you!”




We have to change our attitudes.

We have to understand that ideal life style habits like good healthy food, water, air, exercise, good thoughts go a long way in keeping us healthy. Civilization has made our life style irregular.

.Food habits, polluted air, sedentary life styles, smoking, Alcohol, drug abuse have all contributed towards diseases. By correcting life styles, we can go a long way in aiding our already efficient body to combat disease.


7. We must understand that inside our body there are billions of symbiotic beneficial bacteria, fungi , etc living in perfect harmony with our bodies which we must learn to respect.

      An occasional infection with bacteria in one site of our body may not necessitate aggressive antibiotic therapy as this will also destroy the symbiotic bacteria all over the body. Further this is assuming that the body is incapable of its own defense.


 8.     All healing in the body occurs with Inflammation, called ‘ ITIS’ e.g Tonsillitis , Bronchitis etc.

Pain is an essential component of inflammation. Hence we must learn to associate it with healing since pain does not permit us to exert and rests the inflamed part.


9. Also all organs of the body are self cleansing. Food pipe cleans itself by vomiting & diarrhea, Urinary tract by frequent urination, ENT by sneezing & Nasal discharge , Respiratory tract by Cough, Gynec Tracts by Menstruation & discharge. So we must believe in the  body’s defenses


10, We must know that the body is always right and knows best how to cope with disease that no support from outside will change the course or the outcome of most diseases significantly. That the doctor can only ease the pain, provide comfort to us, advise us on life styles, provide tech knowledge for us to understand the disease. We must learn to trust our bodies  and live secure in the knowledge that all that happens, happens for good. And we must realise that DEATH IS NOT ADVERSE and that THE DOCTOR IS NO GOD.

Cooke in Oxford Companion to Medical Studies writes “ most of medicine is about relief of, and comfort in suffering. and in the main very little to do with saving life"


     As it is rightly Written in Love & Bailey’s Bible of  



    From inability to leave well alone,

      from too much zeal for what in new &

      contempt for what is old

      from putting knowledge before wisdom

      Science before art. Cleverness before common


       From treating patients as cases and

       from making the cure of a disease more

       grevious than its endurance

       Good Lord, deliver us”


                               Sir Robert Hutchinson

                                  1871 - 1960 


 To which I may humbly add- 


               disrespect for the body’s wisdom

               contempt for the disease process

               disregard for microorganisms

               fear of death and disease

               associating illness with death

               dissociating pain from healing

               awe of medical advances

               underestimation of body defences

               undue expectation from the doctor

               from disbelief in the rules of destiny,

                          God or Nature,
