Medicine is Asking All the Wrong Questions

ARTICLE SYNOPSIS

  • To get to the right answers, we do indeed have to ask the right questions.
  • In medicine, we seemed to have skipped over the most important question altogether – “Why?”

Medicine is asking all the wrong questions, and we’ve been programmed to follow along and ask those same wrong questions when it comes to our health. The whole situation reminds me of a scene from Moneyball where Johan Hill’s character Peter Brand is explaining what’s wrong with the way baseball players are being managed and selected to Brad Pitt’s character Billy Beane (see below for video).

This so wonderfully translates to medicine right now.
– There IS an epidemic failure within the medical industry to understand what is really happening.
– Patients ARE being mismanaged.
– A lot of the thinking behind some of the ways we need to treat disease ARE medieval.

The goal of standard medical therapies is to manage symptoms. But the goal of all doctors should be to eliminate underlying dysfunctions and restore health so the body can manage itself.

“There is an epidemic failure within the game to understand what is really happening.”

So what are these wrong questions:

  • What is the diagnosis?
  • How do we treat a patient with {insert diagnosis}?
  • How do we manage the symptoms of {insert diagnosis}?
  • How can we find ways to detect a disease earlier?

What we SHOULD be asking:

  • What are the exact causes of a patient’s unhealthy state?
  • How can we best restore health of the body, mind and spirit?
  • What treatments and medicines are best for the individual patient (not the disease)?
  • How can we prevent disease from ever happening?

We need to stop looking at the disease all the while spending billions looking for the magic pill that will solve everything, and start looking at the person who has the disease. Each of us is so unique, and our current state of health or disease is also just as unique and so multi-faceted that we require a truly comprehensive and personalized solution. In this manner, we can also take real preventive measures, locate dysfunctions at their source and correct them before they every manifest.

And yes, these questions normally do get me ostracized with many in the medical community, but it takes a Theoretical Rebel to ask these questions and make real change happen.

ABOUT Caspar Szulc

A new study led by M.I.T researchers found that when mice with symptoms of Alzheimer’s were exposed to flickering lights and clicks, their memory and other cognitive impairments improved. The findings offer the exciting possibility of a non-invasive, drug-free treatment for Alzheimer’s. The study used light and sound delivered at 40 hertz for one hour a day, for seven days. This frequency stimulated gamma oscillations, brainwaves which are reduced in people with Alzheimer’s.
